It’s also been quite a week for driving.

Masterclass on Saturday 7th: highly tuned VW Bora TDi plus the BMW 528i auto that I drove sub-optimally last year. The Bora kept grounding, lowered as it was by about 50 mm: too much. It rewarded a high gear, which made it unusual. I conquered the 528i, with the President on board. Apparently I have great potential, and will one day make a great driver. By HPC standards, praise indeed.

I did a little dance.

Tuesday evening was an informal drive in a Porsche 911 ClubSport. It’s a great car. No servo on the brakes; no power steering; all the weight aft, thanks to the air-cooled, noisy engine. It’s a brilliant, challenging, interesting road car and I love it.
