Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Re the coronatrucmuche, Le Louvre is closed today. Sadly, so is my favorite chinese restaurant! The positive side is that we're doing better than the German, 100 vs 79! Go Frankreich, go!

What song do you sing to time the 20secs for washing your hands? I know some rugby songs.

Apparently singing Happy Birthday twice is sufficient!

We had more than you! We went to a local beer festival, tried lots of local beers & ate chips! I came home with some bottles of a nice brew called Titanic, brewed in Hesdin.

There's been information about various auctions of historic & classic vehicles in the past, but this one is for some of the more mundane "classics" of the 70's, 80's 7 90's and, it's fair to say, a lot of them are not in the best of condition. The motorbikes & cars start on page 3, with the first two pages being of interesting junk!

For those that know the SniffPetrol website, they have a linked Smith & Sniff Youtube channel and visited the auction showroom recently if you have a spare 45 minutes

Bonjour, Alfaholics, always a pleasure to read from you!

Hey John, promised I didn't google it but let me try what could be a local joke about this particular beer: Titanic, la bière qui coule… à flots!

Gerard, Cliff and I raced Lairy Canary in the first ever HTC races at Spa in 2013. Spot the PA sponsor stickers in the Silverstone pic.

Yes, but road conditions and traffic weren’t quite as challenging then. OK, the odd horse and cart......

Yes I saw the Figaret stickers but couldn't guess the year. What about being returning customers, there's still room for good cars/drivers in this grid. Spa would welcome your Cibié lights!

I do remember the test, first driving licence was for motorcycles. My instructor was totally nuts and a great petrol head! Not easy to follow him in the trafic with a 350 Jawa. I even seized the engine during a speed exercice… But it looks like yesterday at least!

John I ignore if your planed a visit to one of the most relaxed and sympathetic classic show in Reims said Salon Champenois du véhicule d'époque, but because of the coronatrucmuche dates have changed, 7 March becomes 9 May. Even the sales of a famous mexican beer are going down. Crazy planet!

Never ridden a bike, so not done that one. I took my test in a nice warm Fiat 850 - it was a bitterly cold day with a few snowflakes. Thus began my love affair with Italian cars & I've owned them continuously since 1971.

I wonder what surprise Alfa Romeo will be announcing at 4.30 this afternoon?
