  1. This is great: “70th Birthday Gift for Putin”.
  2. Noticed today that Lance Stroll’s Aston Martin F1 team are investing big time in new facilities. There’s a colossal new building going up which dwarfs their original Silverstone HQ next door (on the left, behind the stack of Portakabins). Budget cap? What budget cap?
  3. Just had my Mondial T cabriolet’s annual service, inspection and brake fluid change at Keys Motorsport. The car had recently developed a slight intermittent misfire which they soon diagnosed as corroded connectors on the LH injector loom. They cleaned up the offending parts and re-fitted. It now runs as smooth as silk again. They didn’t charge me a penny more than the £595 plus VAT quoted on their website.
  4. Apart from the initial decision not to start the race straight after the rain stopped, there were some odd race control decisions yesterday. Not saying that they had any outcome on the result, but a couple of safety car decisions. Car stops at dangerous point on circuit: yellow flags only for a while, then VSC and car gets cleared, then full safety car! Second one: car crashes and loses front wing, VSC and then green light whilst marshalls are still on the track extricating the wing from the barrier.
  5. Has anyone seen/heard a prototype I4 Emira actually being driven, even on YouTube? I don’t mean the one fitted with the electric motor to get itself from transporter to showroom and back.
  6. It’s now been over a year since the Emira did the rounds of the UK dealers. Who would have thought that 12 months later not a single car had been supplied to a UK customer?
  7. 1.30pm. Surely they should be racing by now? Has Liberty Media never heard of a wet race?
  8. What happened to the staff Lotus hired to push the brand way upmarket? Those guys with the Sunseeker yacht contacts to whom Lotus were going to sell the 130 Evijas?
  9. You wish. It’ll no doubt be a slap on the wrist, fine and a “don’t do it again” suspended sentence.
  10. It’s basically a way of extending Russia’s borders and trying to cling on to what they’ve got. So whereas Ukraine has been pretty good in avoiding attacks on real Russian territory, Putin will now claim that further progress East and South by Ukrainian forces would be tantamount to an invasion of Russia itself, with all the sabre-rattling and threats which that entails. He will also include Western arms in his rhetoric: I.e. Western weapons are now being used to attack the Motherland, even though they actually fall on Ukrainian soil.
  11. Wouldn’t it be great if some Special Operation Ukrainians could spoil Vlad’s Annexation Party tomorrow. At least they will know where to find him:
  12. Why would anyone else even consider sabotaging it? Only someone as mental as Mad Vlad would think it’s a good idea.
  13. It’s been a very long time since I shared a bath with anyone. If I asked the wife to join me, we’d have to call the Fire Brigade to hoist us out.
  14. I bet that pongs. Everyone knows that the bubbles from a bath time fart are the smelliest.
  15. Yep, I got both my 4th covid jab (Moderna) and the winter flu jab administered at our local GP surgery last Friday. Both in the same arm immediately after each other. I’m in the over 50s category.
  16. I clicked on your link for a look and it seems like they don’t recommend new customers joining them at this time.
  17. To be fair, didn’t they actually film Moonraker before the Shuttle had ever taken off? edit: just checked and yes the first NASA launch was in April 1981 (I remember watching it on TV at school), whereas the film came out in 1979. Impressive take-off special effects considering.
  18. Have any of the various space agencies outside of Hollywood knowingly detonated any explosive device in the vacuum of space? If so what was the effect?
  19. I bet it’s a popular colour with insects.
  20. Fantastic. Well done. Are you the first TLFer to take delivery?
  21. That’s awful. Maybe the occupants were just really fat?
  22. I use these guys for my Mondial T cabrio. How does their price compare to yours?
  23. Gave up after 60 seconds. Why does he think anyone is interested in watching that?
  24. Sounds like Putin has gone a bit more mental today. Spouting drivel on telly and calling up 300,000 reservists as a partial mobilisation. Proof, if needed, that he knows he is losing the war.
