The Mintex Austin Sixteen Goodwill Tour Platinum Anniversary – Under Way Today!

As featured previously, the Mintex-sponsored recreation of the ‘Seven Capitals in Seven Days’ 1947 good will run originally undertaken by Alan Hess and his team with 3 Austin Sixteens, is now underway, with motoring journalist Guy Loveridge at the wheel of a recently-restored Sixteen.

The tour has begun with a ferry crossing to Holland, then a drive to Copenhagen – the closest available route to the original since the ferry crossing from Newcastle to Stavanger no longer exists.
