Doncaster lawyer Philip Armstrong is in the driving seat when it comes to adventures - after he completed a 3, 300 trip across Europe in a classic Rolls Royce.

He completed the epic journey in his 58-year-old classic car without a single breakdown.

The wills and probate expert at Jones & Co Solicitors in Bawtry was taking part in the Dutch organised Tuscany Tour Montalpruno 2015, which saw more than 25 classic cars from all over Europe travel over the French Alps, into Switzerland via the Slevio Pass, on to Italy via Lake Como to drive through Tuscany and back again.

Philip said: "I have kept classic cars for more than 20 years. As well as the Rolls Royce, I am having a 1960 Triumph TR3, which has been off-road since the 1960s and a 1971 Jensen Interceptor restored.

"I’m looking forward to driving both of these. The Tuscany Tour was a tremendous, once in a lifetime, opportunity to visit some beautiful parts of Europe and put one of the world’s best loved vehicles to the test.

"The fact that we travelled through challenging terrains, in a range of weathers without encountering a single problem is testament to the quality and reliability of the car. My next ambition is to get the TR3 back on the road and drive from Lands End to John O’Groats."
