An amazing achievement 8500 miles - not much coverage of the White but do watch the film.
This is the driver's summary
"Distance Records Set as 1910 White MM Pullman Steam Car Crosses Line in Paris
There was a potential record set by Mitch Gross and Christopher Rolph in Gross’ 1910 White MM Pullman steam car. If driving halfway around the world in a 109-year-old vehicle isn’t hard enough, to complete it in one powered by a steam engine must be doubly difficult. It is perhaps the longest journey ever completed by a steam car and life-long steam fan Gross had this to say:
“We set a world distance record for steam powered cars but had to have three engine rebuilds on the way. We also almost ran out of fire extinguishers. But, with the help of pour great support crew we made it.” "
