So weve been quite slack recently with updates, mainly because the list of things we needed to get done kept getting longer and longer, this blog post might be alot of words but also pictures.
With less than a week before departure our Iranian Authorisation code finally came through and after swiftly booking a train we were told to get their early so we could buy a same day visa as we couldn't get back down to london again. You get given a raffle ticket que up like the meat counter at a supermarket, fingerprints taken money handed over and wait until the end of the day to collect it, lucky for us it all worked out lovely.
We also got some last minute bits for the car and ourselves, Mike hunt helped us out magnificently by fitting a sump guard to our car and we even managed to get some custom team shirts made huzzaahh
Only one word to describe this, messy!! So we drove down with the car packed to the roof literally, arrived 20 minutes late for registration, parked the car, set the tent up and started drinking with anyone who would sit and drink with us.
We met some crazy teams going in some crazy cars including a team that are bidding to be the first to complete the mongol rally in an electric car.
There was a slight issue towards the end of the night/morning when we tried to order a pizza but was told that they wouldn't deliver to us at goodwood, so we quickly made up an address walked about 20 minutes up a dark road had about 20 phone calls from the delivery driver asking where we was as the address didn't make sense. Long story short we got the pizza.
