The later GT2s, like the one I drove at Silverstone, were uprated to 483 bhp. As the Septics say, it's awesome.

That is sad. Don't you have plebs to do that for you.

No second thoughts do it yourself. If your plebs are anything like my plebs it's far easier & quicker to sort it out myself.

See following extracts from todays e:mails to the plebs:

"
Regarding missing TBE dates by a month, this was supposed to have been investigated last week & the week before, yet again the individuals responsible for checking had not done what they were supposed to have done. Needless to say I was not impressed this morning. When it takes me approximately 2 mins to establish that TBEs have been issued in Infoworks, Im disappointed that the people whose should be extracting the information from infoworks appear unable to find it in 4 weeks"


and :


"
Without wishing to make statements of the bleedin obvious, sometimes there is no option.
What is happening with Mumbai process systems group? Weve stated we have few concerns in achieving our P&ID production targets, yet turn in progress numbers which are of our plan. The 2 statements do not go together. Between process & process systems we have earnt 4500 hours the equivalent of 20 people, the group is 64 strong.


Control systems consistently fails to achieve its targets. Looking at datasheets at the beginning of August, Hawken was forecasting being complete on all the in-line stuff by end of August, hes now currently projecting end of September. However his current rate of completion of datasheets tells me he wont complete until Christmas. Hes not even keeping pace with the rate at which process data is being made available. The group has resources & backlog yet is still not performing.

Reading this, not that I understand a word of it Confused
, makes me a) glad I am self employed and b) glad I don't employ any plebs! Wink
