Jensens tackle Scandinavia for anniversary run

| 11 Aug 2011

To  celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Jensen Owners' Club, a group of members  took to the road and had a two-week driving holiday with a difference, one that started in Denmark went through Sweden, on to Norway then back to Denmark for the return ferry to the UK.

The cars left England on the 16 July via Harwich to Esbjerg Denmark, then stopping at Copenhagen, where they found a German club member, in his car, waiting to greet them at the hotel having driven overland to join the run. 

Goteburg, Sweden, Oslo, Flam (near Aurland), Bergen and Rjuken followed before the intrepid club members caught the fast ferry at Larvik (Norway) back to Denmark, stopping at Hirstals then back to Esbjerg for the ferry.

Club members from all three countries visited joined the UK cars on different parts of the journey, some running with them for several days, before the return to the UK on 29 July. The Norwegian contingent was particularly hospitable, especially considering the trauma gripping the country at the time of the Jensen Owners' Club arrival, the visitors going to Oslo on the same day as Anders Breivik bombed the capital and went on the rampage on the island of Utoya.

The adventure was advertised on the Jensen Owners' Club forum and in the bi-Monthly magazine so created much interest.

You just want to know about fuel consumption don't you? Well, so did we, so we asked! One FF owner reckoned he averaged 15mpg-plus for the 2000-mile round-trip.
