The old Vito FLIES up to France and back…

As regular readers will know I LOVE my Mercedes Vito and since I bought her new in 2009 I have always enjoyed my trips with her, Italy to the UK several times plus Germany and Spain and so on. She has NEVER let me down and is now at 160k kms. When we had the two years stop thanks to COVID she started to misbehave and I was very concerned cos I did not know how I could fix her.

Well she is now fixed and seems to drive better than ever!!! I think that the problem was caused by the enforced stop which blocked the fuel filter or the injectors or the fuel pump or whatever. GREAT news and happy days indeed.

Recently I decided that I wanted to visit the famous 24 hour race the Bol D’Or at Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France near to Marseille which I had not attended since about 1983. Marseille is about 1200 km from Amalfi and so with the van 2 days each way. I found a hotel in the Vieux Port area and I really enjoyed the trip as well as the amazing circuit and I was SUPER pleased that the Vito was back on form!!! I took my FZ1 with me and so I went to the track each day which is only 30km from the city, such fun, and a few photos follow. STUNNING circuit.
