  1. I had a Larini Club exhaust fitted to my previous Lotus (Elise S2), which was loud - though I found it got oppressive on a long run.

    My current car (Elise 111R) has a 2Bular system which is generally quieter than the Larini - though still does the business if you put your foot down.

  2. A true British eccentric.

    The BBC says:

    "When war came he turned down a place at Cambridge and lied about his age to join the RAF, serving as a navigator with Bomber Command and rising to the rank of Flight Lieutenant.

    His RAF experiences, which included a visit to the Dachau concentration camp, left him a bitter opponent of war.

    His fiancee, Lorna, was killed when an ambulance she was driving was hit by a bomb. He never married.

    He presented The Sky At Night for five decades.

    "That was it," he said. "There was no one else for me. Second best is no good for me. I would have liked a wife and family, but it was not to be."
