We holiday in Cornwall regularly - and 430Km is about the distance down there from where we live - so we do this mileage down and then same again back about 6 times a year (however it's still a helluva long way for just a weekend! ) So us Brits do a bit of mileage as well !

Enjoy your holiday - we are looking forward to our summer after a long,damp and cold winter !

Peter, I think he's referring to the 1223.2km he's just done, not the 430km still to do. Australia is a bit bigger than the UK for sure....

OK - I concede that 1600km is a lot of driving !!

Not in a Strato's?? Why the engine light on?? Did 100miles (1600km) in 2 days in a 1955 Lancia Aurelia B12 last October. Took 2 days as it kept over heating and the dynamo broke....

The longest drive I've ever done in the Stratos in a day was after the Lancia Centenary. Andrea & I went up to Malcesine on Lake Garda for a few days. The journey home started at 10ish on the road and we headed South towards Milan, across towards Turin before heading for Aosta, Lausanne, Besancon, Dijon and stopped at Reims around 10pm. Stops for fuel along the way and the odd butty we did just over 1000km in the day. The following day was Reims to Calais, Dover and Liverpool adding another 800km for a total of 1800km odd in 36 hours.

Longest drive in a day, sharing the driving in a Stratus was just under 800 miles from San Francisco to the Grand Canyon. I think that took us 14 hours with stops for fuel and food.

My longest trip with a Stratos was done two time in 2015 and 2017 from John’s workshop in Cheshire to my home...almost 1500 km in 2 days with no issue the first time and one hose cooling collector issue second time at 40 km to home needing us to refill cooling system with water from a trough in a horse farm!!:p

Ha! Yes, following you from Toulouse I remember you disappearing in a cloud of steam as the header tank dumped it's contents on the front bank headers!
And we left behind some thirsty horses.......
