This past week I was out in Montana on business and when I returned home I was very pleasantly surprised to find a souvenir book from the Rally Round folks who put on the Paris-Prague car rally last June. In that car rally I was fortunate enough to be the navigator for Michael Eatough of England in his 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230S fintail sedan.
The book is a high quality book filled with photos of the competitors and their cars. I have included copies of some of the photos of Michael and I that were included in the book.
Michael & I At The Rally Finish
Michael’s Mercedes-Benz is a rally-tough car. Mercedes-Benz cars tend to be over-engineered and over-built and Michael along with his mechanic Owen Warboys have improved on this.

The route of the Paris-Prague rally included many nice scenic mountain roads through Austria.

I am pleased to have this book as it is a great reminder of the car rally and the people that we met during the rally. I hope to meet these people again somewhere. This rally was the first rally that Michael and I competed together and it solidified our plan to compete together as a team in the 2019 Peking To Paris Motor Challenge.
