    Adrian Flux Insurance
    I'm in the fortunate position of having the chance to be the motoring writer for the newspaper I work for. Nothing 100% yet but I do have a few cars coming in from manufacturers press fleets over the next few weeks. I've noticed that the insurance provided by the manufacturers only covers 3rd...

    Alfa Giulietta
    13 months on and 8,500 miles on the clock, just completed a 480 mile trip from West Sussex to Cawsand near Looe in Cornwall and return.

  10. What's your worst ever motoring delay?

    General Motoring Discussion
    A post in another thread made me wonder this. I think mine was during a road-trip in Nevada/California/Arizona. We had planned a very short driving day into Yosemite, so we had lots of time to explore. Except the snow had stayed longer than usual that year. A 1 hour drive into the park from...

  13. Motoring in Scotland?

    General Motoring Discussion
    If Scotland votes for independance, would that mean that if we wanted to drive to Scotland, we would need an international driving licence and have to tell our insurers that we were going to be driving in a foreign country? As an aside, I don't reckon this independance is about Scotland. Leaving...
