Re: Run flats to 'normal tyres'

I changed the run flats on my R53 JCW and like the person above it has the sports + suspension which is stupidly hard.

Re: Flat bottomed steering wheels - why??

Re: Dodgy precedent?

I think this is a good idea. I know that unless the evidence shows the complete offence then it won't be taken to prosecution. This isn't something that would be used for very minor offences but they want to catch some of the more serious one's and that suits me fine. No one is prepared to pay for t...

Re: Lane closure due to roadworks

Back to merge in turn briefly and to give some context to the discussion and comments made earlier in this thread, I have a couple of points that may be of interest: * On a high speed road if the traffic flow is high enough then it is lane 2 that will be closed with a chicane leading back to lane 2 ...

Re: Cockpit Drill

Since the seat belt is there to help you in a collision, I would have thought that as long as it's on before you set off then that would be adequate. But that's just my thought, I'm new to all this.

Re: Commentary Driving

Just seen this, that list is really useful for me too as I'm practising getting my commentary up to speed. It's helpful to have understood phrases to use which stops me having to think too much about how to say what I'm seeing whilst I'm on commentary. Once I'm more practised no doubt I will start t...
