62 years too young

November is Mario’s birthday, this month he’ll be 49, but this weekend he was far too young to go on the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run. Mario’s ‘humans’ were invited to go on the run in a 1900 De Dion Bouton (62 years older than Mario) It was a great event with great public support, with people waving you on all along the route. The De Dion suffered a few problems with value lifters but with a bit of fettling along the route made it to the finish on Brighton Seafront. Mario might never be old enough to do the London to Brighton but he will be 50 next year so we will have to start planning a party to celebrate!
