Well , I did it , with my ground team and lots of heat and wind .. 2 months and 8215km later....... I bettered Ben Jordons previous record of 8008km and 5 months .
It was a hard 2 months, but were finished and happy with the results with the time and the problems that OZ could throw our way . Many thought I could not do it , including many from OZ.... but I did it and happy to be coming home, now to file the paper work with Guiness... cheers
