Newall Andy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Guy I know well took a car to Lille the other day and returned the day after... his passport was checked and stamped and that was that ! Customs didn't even ask where he was going or who's car it was. The Covid checker only just remembered to check his cert was negative !!
Im going to Hamburg tomorrow to collect a Cobra and from what i've heard it all seems very positive.... lets hope my Covid test result isn't.

Fortunately all my cars are road registered, MOT'd insured and taxed.

Still sounds like a massively unecessary ball ache for no good reason . . . given my general dislike of travel in this country I don't suppose I'll be racing much until things revert or sort themselves out. Euro trips were always far more appealing.

More tempted than ever to sell everything. Which is exactly what a fair few friends have already done.

Good luck Andy. This was the scene yesterday at Ashford Customs. According to the local rag, although they didn't say if this was import or export, some drivers queued for 8 hours to clear. Older truckers on here will remember "standing on the stairs" at Dover. At least there was a roof then, "standing in the rain" seems to be the modern equivalent.

The Portacabins you can see are what is being used by HMRC while they continue building the new facility, last I heard it will not be open until the end of Feb. I imagine the lousy weather we're having will push that back further. Photo from the RHA.

If that's not 'Oven ready' I don't know what is.

Andy,
Are you using a truck or a trailer? If a trailer, what are you towing it with,
van or car?

This sounds really hopeful. Never mind the prognostications of MSUK stuck in their offices, on the ground we've been told it's not a problem. Perfect!
