ENGLISH FOOTBALL FAN TRAVELS TO EURO 2012 TOURNAMENT IN FORD VAN
A football mad Ford van owner has just clocked up 3000 miles, following the English football team to the tournament to the Ukraine. The dad of four could now clock even more miles, should the team make it to the final in Kiev on the 1st of July.
The epic journey took four days to drive, taking him through France, Belgium, Germany, Slovakia and eventually the Ukraine.
The van owner and dad of four, Andrew Jolly, has spoken of his journey saying it was all ok until he got to Slovakia, where he encountered potholes that stretched six feet across in places. Along the way Andrew was fined for not using his headlights, which are required to be on all of the time in Slovakia.
His van, a red Escort van, has been on many trips in the past to football tournaments, including Portugal and France. The Escort van was last produced in 2000; these days those seeking new Ford vans will choose the Fiesta, Ford Transit Connect or the Transit van.
