tough job but someone has to do it

Spent the best part of the morning samlping Europes finest.

First up we have one of AMGs finest


Didn't like the wheels but there wasn't much else not to like. Extremely impressive. Everyone who has driven this car has come away with a big smile on the dial. I wasn't any different. Been thrashed as the Targa pace car but you wouldn't know it

Where's the burnout pics!

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
