Re: Covid 19

On a positive note, since the problems started I have not had a single phone call telling me that my Amazon Prime has been renewed (Which I don't have anyway), That my Microsoft account has been compromised or that I qualify for new double glazing! I have also noticed that drivers are leaving more s...

Re: Goodwood Festival of Speed

South America is in lockdown, so as you say Falklands appears the only way but the usual refuelling stops like Ascension Island and Cape Verde are closed too. Hopefully something can be sorted as the winter is setting in.

Re: Goodwood Festival of Speed

Sad news indeed David. I hope you and Denise are keeping well. Keith is stranded in Rothera and trying to get back home possibly via the Falklands.

Re: LeMans Classic

I guess Silverstone have extended the BOGOF because folk aren't buying tickets. :(

Goodwood Festival of Speed

I see that the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July has now been cancelled. Things don't look good for motor racing this summer. :(

Re: LeMans Classic

I think that a lot of these events are at risk including Silversone Classic. Up here the Bo'ness Revival Classic in September has been cancelled which is a real shame as it was practically washed out last year due to the heavy rains. Do you have travel insurance to cover any loss?

Re: Car tales

I agree Peter, although perhaps you beat me slightly with the number of years driving. I first regularly (although not legally!) drove a car on the road when I was about 14, taking my Granddad to and from work on a Saturday. Those were the days when you knew the local bobby and he didn't have a car,...

Re: Car tales

Do car incidents fit the bill? I had a B-reg landy when I was in my 20s, whose bonnet came open on the M4 at 70mph. It flapped up against the windscreen, which was quite tricky. I managed briefly to look through the gap near the hinge before winding down the window and sticking my head out to see b...
