Re: Brands Hatch club racing

I was down there too, supporting a friend in the car I raced last year, the BMW E36 328i in Roadsports. I was also there to investigate the Locosts you mentioned. Seemed like a great series with very close racing and a friendly paddock, so hopefully should be entering next year. Blimey small world!...

Re: I-Pace

It will certainly beat the ball in a saucer for improving your smooth driving. For extra warmth just sharply accelerate light up the soft furnishings/mats etc. and your away. :twisted:

Re: Cognitive bias and the "thirds" rule

Something must have kicked in, that looks more like a 30mph hit rather than a full 65mph. Still what was wrong with looking out the ....... window and perhaps seeing the flashing blue/red lights before the car detected an obstruction. :shock:
