I've sent a message for the Red Arrows to escort you through Sussex (twinned with Beirut) they are definitely not part of this event nearby.

Does somebody shop at the same hat shop as Vulgalour?

We are hungry and our attempts to fix this have been foiled by THE SOUTH.

Highlights include failing to get into TWO McDonald's, the first because a super confusing road layout threw us back into the dual carriageway, and the second was surrounded by fencing and JCBs. Presumably they were mining for McNuggets.

Roadside greasy spoons are worryingly sparce.

A better bet for food will be Nando's if you can track one down using their website. Not much more money. The alternative is to drive into the nearest small town and find something open?

Bit of an etiquette faux pas from Squire - eating without removing his hat. He did get the posh burger though.

I delayed us slightly by demanding stop at a crowded service station to use the facilities rather than peeing out of the window of a moving car.

But finally, a worthwhile spot:

Is that a horseshoe lapel badge you are sporting? If so, Mrs P would be lamenting the bad luck you are about to encounter  -  the shoe should be the other way up as otherwise, all the good luck will run out ...  I know, I know.  She'll probably sell you some lucky heather too, if you ask nicely.

More or less identical unit to the one in the 21 I had. The original one in the 11 is very much more antiquated looking.
25 auto in my opinion but it doesn't fit either bench seat or gearstick placement.
It could just be a Renault radio in something else of course.
