Day 33 – Troyes to Paris

Heroes Welcome

By Syd Stelvio, www.endurorally.com

Whistles blew… someone sounded a trumpet…..and everyone clapped. The survivors of the Peking to Paris drove through the streets of Paris this morning – down the Champs-Élysées with girls in white T-shirts on roller skates escorting cars across traffic-lights, shoppers and children on the pavement stood and stared… then cheered…drivers waved back.

Driving the Impossible

The final few kilometres in the middle of Paris is no place to break down, but everyone was helping everyone and to loud cheers from a big crowd, survivors rolled over the finish line in Place Vendome. So ends the 2013 Peking to Paris – crossing 15 frontiers, driving the greatest land-mass between two capital cities and the biggest wilderness in the world where a car can turn a wheel...

It is  very late and I am exhausted. I have not had a chance to reflect on my rally yet. My main goal now is to rest. But I will say this, It was sad waking up this morning with the realization that it is all over.I miss the wonderful people that I have met. I miss seeing them everyday and talking about what was broken on our cars. I miss getting up at 4:30 -5 am. I miss getting into my vehicle and driving insane distances.

I promise to catch up on my blog when I get back to Canada...

Day 33, (Sat., June 29, 2013) Troyes to Paris, France

I awoke to a rainy day in France- looks like the top will have to stay up on my car for now as it was pouring.

I’m not sure how I feel. Perhaps sad that it will be over soon. Today I will see my Father & Jasmine at the finish line. I was looking very forward to that. but still I felt sad. Sad that Car 92 of Emma & Peter would not be there. Something that they both looked so forward to and had worked  so hard to accomplish.

Day 32 – Gstaad to Troyes

Final Fling

By Syd Stelvio, www.endurorally.com

With around 86 cars expected to cross the finish-line in the centre of Paris tomorrow out of the original 96 starters, there is a terrific atmosphere in the bar tonight as competitors breathe a big sigh a relief that it now looks as if the survivors take in liquid refreshment for the struggle to get out of Troyes tomorrow on the final leg.

Driving the Impossible

Doubts? There is only one. There could not be a last minute drama without Bill and Mark from Car 15, the Ford Model A, taking centre-stage. Today the water pump they found in the wreck outside the Victoria Hotel in Davos gave up… and so the car was sadly put on a truck to Troyes...
