I think someone else is using his phone. Notice the "croissant" a couple of posts later.

I had a road trip to Northampton and back yesterday, nowhere near as glamorous
We didn't have snow but the track was iced over and start delayed. Oh and the lock froze on the workshop gate.

Safe journey Iain, look forward to seeing you when we can get back to racing again.

It's fine & dry up here at the moment, but the sunny morning has just given way to grey cloud so who knows?

Did you get to give the Jag a good 'PDL'?

We had trouble finding the circuit .Sadly unloaded E Type and spent some time with their mechanic . We set sail and pushed on home . The track was in use and we could hear cars going round . Maybe I will go back sometime .

Firstly, its 9pm just about down here.... I have just poured my first glass of wine. I have a feeling Gerry Mo beat me by several hours (and drinks!)

Anyway wish you all the very best for a Prosperous, Healthy and Safe 2021.
I dare say that none of us will be doing much partying out and about .... our fireworks displays in Melbourne have been cancelled and we have all been urged to stay at home although most restrictions here in Melbourne have now been lifted.

Raise my glass to you all, both absent and present. Hopefully next year with be better all round.

Cheers for your learned, zany, eccentric but always welcome company here at HRT. I have certainly enjoyed it and learnt a lot as well. Long may it continue.
