Where is the Capri When You Need it?

Came across this beauty of a tunnel.....
I can't wait to go back through it in the Capri, the sound will be amazing! :D

Hi Danny,
I get a fair bit of wind noise if I try to record with the windows down or the sunroof open. I usually use a dashcam, but I'm going to try putting my camera on the dashboard and recording with that.

As Sherlock Holmes would say “ The Game is A foot “

Who will win this battle will it be .....

Our number one photographer from the west
Or
Our fast two Capris with a new manifold from the east ( well sort of east )
