Michael Ross and Alex Roy will be joining the Londino. The Londino is an invitation-only, transnational treasure hunt with automobiles, between London and Portofino. This treasure hunt will be neither a race nor a rally. It’s about enjoying the beautiful scenery that Europe has to offer and finding secret checkpoints with the limited clues the organization supplies the participants. The winning team of this treasure hunt receives two de Grisogono watches.
In the announcement Alex Roy made at his blog he lists a couple sources on the web where you find out more about the Londino. Of course the official site, an account from 2006, the official blog and a press release regarding Team Polizei’s entry.
The official blog reveals Alex Roy and Michael Ross will be driving Michael’s non-Team Polizei branded BMW Z8. Alex announced this will be his first real holiday in over 4 years, that’s why they won’t be wearing Team Polizei uniforms or a fully stickered Team Polizei vehicle. Vacation or no-vacation; with all their rally and challenge experience we still give them a good change to win the treasure hunt!
We found a FashionTV report of the 2006 Londino:
According to rumours heared by Alex Roy the Londino will depart London Thursday morning at 0900hr, with overnight stops in Paris, Geneva, Stresa and, ultimately, the Hotel Splendido in Portofino this coming Sunday.
