I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

My Dad came through his open-heart surgery successfully.

I always drive mine sensibly - the original owner won a 6 month ban in it for 125mph though :popo:

I got two weeks for 106....amateur dramatics helps; never was such a cringing whippet seen! The usher suggested I cheer up, as we walked out.....and then apply for my license back at the Post Office next door to the court. Chap up before me got a 6 month ban for 103...he had a brief, and I don't think the marble haired chairwoman of the bench liked that much....In those days, any ban left you with a clean license!

Err, 6 weeks for 128 on the M25 (6am on a bank holiday, it was empty), 18 months for 5 speeding offences in a year when I worked in a casino and commuted 150 miles/day on empty motorways at night, I think 10 years in France for 159 (kph) and 2 days when I had an FMT600 from the RAF for doing donuts in a yellow SWB Land Rover, our Sqn Ldr saw me from his glider 1,500' above us on the Northern Grass at Manston, I was 16 so good to get it out of the way early! In the video above they guessed we were doing 125 at that point and later in the day when the 8 cars sent to catch up did catch us they said we were pulling away from them and they were doing 150mph! That was my NA, with a factory top speed of 138mph so 16 court appearances over 18 months saw the case pretty much dropped by the CPS. 

I'm also a couple of points away from the crystal decanter I think I saw at Greenwich Magistrates, but it's been a while so my licence has been clean for 4-5 years now unbelievably! I'll not disclose the total I've had as it's not big or clever but I've stood on the side of the road eating humble pie more than a few times but there aren't many options with one dart to get that many points! 

That said, I would have liked a copy of the video from the drive up to @Sparky's when he was changing the clutch on my SE. I had a little 'thing' with an Audi Quattro and an unmarked Vectra wanted to join in! My Esprit was looking magnificent that day - I did ask but the cop said it's not really the done thing.

Long time ago, I had a fine of 650  gbp plus two years having to drive without any other fine, plus I had to take the driving liscense all over again, for doing 140 mph through center of Copenhagen (late Sunday afternoon) in a bet of who came first to the Little Mermaid to get a big icecream. Well, it wasn't me anyway.

Kind regards,

Jacques.
