Comment  If all goes according to plan, in a few days I will be heading for Georgia (that's the one that borders Russia and Azerbaijan) and driving a Gaz Pobeda in the first competitive car rally ever held within the country. Should be very interesting....

Retro-Fact   At Le Mans in 1929 Bentley finished 1-2-3-4, with Woolf Barnato crossing the line first in the 6.5-litre car. Barnato also won in 1928 and was to make it three in a row when he won the race yet again in 1930.
