Have a safe trip down chaps, watch your speed on the Autoroutes etc, police have stepped up there presence due to an increase in accidents and drink driving.

A troop of us are heading down tomorrow, on the 1020 Eurotunnel crossing.

reckon the first option was more enjoyable. Have you done something wrong at work that they've made you drive one of them

I hope you have some Gulf stickers for it

Don't knock it We had one ( not Hybrid ) for over a month as a loaner, they are British built and nothing creaked, leaked etc it was truly well built Not the most engaging drive, but did everything competently , and look out you two it does get into licence losing territory... eventually. However given it's striking design ,I did manage to lose it @ Heathrow

Just been watching it live......and what a horrible accident with Audi / Alan Mcnish involved, just ONE Hour into the race, how on earth no-one was injured in that one, is a minor miracle IMHO.......

Just switched over to Eurosport 2, and how ironic that Alan McNish was doing a very sophisticated advert for Audi, just before the programme started !!!!!.......

Safety Car is going to be out for a while, by the look of it.......

The more replays they are showing of that Audi / McNish accident, the worse it seems to get, complete carnage all round, and some VERY lucky spectators, on the other side of the tyre wall / barrier there, methinks......
