Re: BRAKE - good news and bad news?

Huh? There are reduced limits? As you come out of Newbury, the B4494 is 40mph until you reach the bridge over the A34 - quite reasonably, since there are a lot of side entries on this section. It is then 60mph all the way to the Oxfordshire Border, with the exception of a very short section through ...

Then you come to the Oxfordshire boundary, and the limit changes to 50. ...

Re: Armistice Day at Duxford

Hi Mike,
I visited Duxworth some years ago. Interested in aviation - a great place. Was that biplane on the first line giving flights? It looks like one in which I had a short flight. - Geoff.

Re: Please Explain

On the right hand side there is a bell shape (which opens 'Notifications'), and a number, presently reading 0, then an envelope shape (which opens 'Private Messages'), and a number, presently reading -1! And I can't have sent an unread messa...

Re: Limited Slip Diffs?

I lived for 11 years in Geneva/neighbouring France (while working at CERN), and in the winter one had to expect snow and ice at any time. In addition I used to drive into the mountains for skiing at the weekend. At the beginning of winter we used to change to studed tyres, and it was compulsary to c...
