Windy500 - Trondheim

We are in Trondheim because 7 teams decided to travel to the Arctic circle to see the midnight sun on the Summer solstice.  We have a 7 hour drive tomorrow which should be approximately 450km. Unfortunately Mark Westamacot will not be able to drive it all on his own so he is leaving his...
