I'm sorry, but I think I saw some film of this, and while I have no problem driving "Con Brio", this was too much. If he really wants to set a record, he should try doing it on a track with no innocent bystanders.

I agree...

First of all, the article is over six months old, so it may not even qualify as "news".
Then, to drive like that on public roads, is insanity, and puts so many innocents at risk.
On top of that, they managed to beat a twenty-five year-old record by only about three percent, with all the planning, technology, and even airplane spotters.
Makes me realize I'll never be buying a car through "Europe by Car", though I considered it at one time.

Sound like a cool guy :rolleyes:
