We had a great time. The first pic was taken during 'The Best Drive of My Life' - A686 Hexham to Alston, then B6277 to Middleton in Teesdale. Sunny, dry, almost empty roads. Not one speed camera. The second pic is Le Mans 2018. Great drive there and back - 964, 993 C4 and my 997 C2 in convoy.

If anyone is interested it's in Specialist Cars of Malton. Also, although it doesn't mention it in the advert, it had an engine rebuild about 14,000 miles ago, so no issues!

Steve.

Nothing at the moment. I really need to ride my motorbike more and as long as my partner lets me drive her Golf GT I don't need a car, however.....

Some mates let me drive their Boxster round Cadwell Park last week. What a blast and what a car. Watch this space.

I can relate, I have two motorbikes and walk to work so something always needs to be used.

Follow their instillation instructions to the letter. They're still more work to take off than put on! But if you drive to Le Mans and you're not stickeredup you'll stand out like a sore thumb.
