Plymouth / Dakar Challenge 2003: ‘Drews Photographs
‘Drews Photographs: France & Spain
Team Red Star and Team Heavey at the filling station in Roscoff
It seems that’s all I took in France. Well, it got dark as soon as we worked our way out of Roscoff
This must be the Spanish side of the Pyrenees
And so must this
Some more spain

Rush hour on the Madrid ring-road
The low lands in Southern Spain
Are these the plains upon which the rain falls mostly upon?

When we arrived, there were plenty of cars in the car park outside Gibraltar, but the Teams were not in sight!

The New Forest Stallions
Julian heads the meeting in the Hotel at Sotogrande (before the serious drinking started)
Having had to attend to a minor bit of maintenance upon my arrival at the hotel, I had little time to take photos in daylight. The following were taken in the dead of night as some Teams got an early night and others continued to party in the ‘Club’ down the road. These are mostly pretty poor photos but I have included them because this is the ony time I got to see some of these cars.
