Tell more John.....

I regularly do the Brum tunnels and there are a laugh, Better to do them around 8pm for best effect.

No wonder you were drooling about a V6 last week John, you had that far away dreamy look in your eyes! Cos' you had one up your sleeve!

I don't think a tunnel run in the jtdm is the best option for me is it???

We just done two weeks of tunnel runs in Italy and Switzerland and if only we didn't have a diseasil!! Most tunnels in Switzerland are limited to 100km but there's plently of 130km in Italy. The further south you go the less speed camera's and the faster you can go!!! I've seen so many Maserati Gransport's this week they would make a ford fiesta look a rare car!!

the bend in the short tunnel (St Chads?) going out of the city is excellent, they have added a safety non slip surface, so you can take the bend 10mph faster
