Delta would have enjoyed it as the Cadillac Saloon (a replica of which he raced at LMC in 2016) was shown, along with the ‘Le Monstre’ version. Think next episode will cover the tragic 1955 race, but most of us have already seen other coverage of that.
Give me the nod when its on again Mike. Thank you. I've been entered again this year.The owner is also building a Le Monster recreation.

Will keep my eye on it. BTW my spelling of 'monstre' is right, but 'too clever for it's own good' auto correct doesn't always know that......

Happy new year from Spain, did the usual and drank the free Cava and ate the 12 grapes at midnight in the village square and then on to a beach bar down the front to see a rock group. We didn't stop out too long as Mrs S was doing a charity day swim in the sea. I know the med is not like the north sea but it's not the warm at this time of year and she didn't wear a wet suit !

Respect for that, I’d hesitate to even jump in a heated pool this time of year!

Happy New Year to you both.

Lots of people were happily jumping into the sea in Boulogne, Calais & Dunkerque yesterday without the need for wetsuits.

They’ve been doing it on our coast as well- some on Xmas day. Doesn’t change my views on winter swimming, though!

I will be checking
Just going back to this. It's a case of be careful what you wish for. Seems that the charge for credit cards is going, to be replaced with a "tariff" for making a booking with either cash in person, or on line via credit card, bank transfer or other means.

So, not only are the credit card customers still being pinged, those who pay cash will also suffer a charge.

I think it might be time for large number of people to stop buying anything for a week or two from any company or other revenue taker who is enthusiastic about such ideas.

Mind you - the mobile phone lot are masters of dipping and few if any seem to bother about them so I don't hold out much hope for any direct action.

Isn't there something about if you have to pay any tax before the end of January deadline, you can only pay by credit card if before the 13th of Jan? Don't know whether that's anything to do with the new "no charges" edict?

Which reminds me.....must do my partnership and personal tax returns before long.....and then work out how to persuade The Man that I'm pretty much retired now so can I just go back to PAYE on my pensions, pretty please?

Belated Happy New Year to all

I think I would prefer the concept of conspiracy to apply. You can work out where you are with a conspiracy.

I would recommend the extra strong tin foil in a generous width so it can be doubled over.
I think they are highly educated but have gone from pampered private school to pampered university to political internship to pointless jobs giving them time to pursue their political careers. So they have no experience of the real world.

I would out a minimum age on all politicians, plus they must have done a number of proper jobs before they're allowed to stand.

A bit like teachers - school, university, year out to bum around, teacher training, teacher. No experience of real working life.

Just hope I've not upset anyone here.

Let's hope this is not a trend that continues into 2018. I could foresee our Iain's plans being disrupted by conscription to the fire service owing to his past experience. As I understand things the wise people in control have decided fires are things of the past these days and cut staffing levels. They may need help!

Some of the local firework displays last night looked like they too had the potential to result in unplanned incendiary activity. Hopefully they were all incident free.

Have fun everyone. Especially Max and anyone else blessed with a Jan 1 birthday.
I wonder how many people had very expensive cameras, phones, watches etc in their cars when they caught fire? The insurance claims may need careful reading!!

I also saw with astonishment and disgust that a number of dogs had been left in cars. Some were rescued ok from the top deck next day, but are we sure that idiots didn't leave dogs in their cars on other floors? No one expects a car park fire but who in their right mind keeps a dog in a locked car for several hours, even in the cool of winter or at night?

It's not been a good period with animals trapped in fires at several locations. Appalling.

I had the same thought but then wondered how many people really consider their personal property insurance.

My car policy covers a nominal 2 or 300 quid iirc.

My household policy is not huge either for personal effects away from the home.

Now if claiming against someone else's policy one might, in the past, have gone largely unchecked.

These days I'm not so sure. The companies will likely disclose to each other the details of level of cover.

It's probably safe to assume that 99% of car insurance companies (or at least underwriters) will have a "position" in the carpark fire. That alone is likely to suppress discussion and limit the potential for trying to game the system.

It could become a very interesting blame game. I wonder if we will ever hear the complete story?

It would also be interesting to know how many of the cars were insured.
