In other news, MOST IRRELEVANT HEADLINE EVER.

Also found: used packet of crisps, two PC monitors, a rare species of tapeworm, but not the four missing teenagers.

Well they had found them too. But not told the public before the families. Local news had ambulances, and air ambulance there but no search and rescue.

Harris is great. Problem is Joe Public are thick as fuck, and someone describing how a car feels and handles would be of no interest. Hence the need for the other two imbeciles.

Random fact, Harris sliding a GT86 around Wales made me buy one.

I really haven’t liked the last iteration of Top Gear . I agree Chris Harris is good but you then had two idiots, Freddie a likeable idiot but Paddy is far too annoying one , and was only ever funny when Peter Kay was writing his lines.

I think the first post Clarkson version could have worked. I’m not a Chris Evans fan but he came across as someone with a genuine passion for cars. The twat from friends was the problem for me and Sabine was terribly under utilised despite being by far the most talented  driver and presenter there.

Eddie Jordan didn’t contribute much either.

The Picasso is still a new car in my head, and I’m not that old.

I won't hear a bad word said against Xsara Picassos, my mum had three of them and they were GR9.

I know, I've known a few on here who have had them and liked them and I trust their opinions. I'd rather have a Fiat multipla I think... 

Runs before @maxxo hears someone bad mouthing a pickarsehole

Considering the fact I bagged a sub 40k mile Xsara Picasso for £600 last year that has been utterly trouble free apart from a slight power steering leak, I think I can vouch for the people that swear by them!

Years ago I always turned my nose up at them but now they're not brand new I've realised how good they actually are

Most of the bad ones have been killed off by now so the ones that are left mainly seem to be pretty good examples. 

I've never thought of selling it, it's just too useful 

The people writing that article might well be paying £300 a month for some sort of financed modern blob which they either don't own at the end of it or they do end up owning it and it shits itself ££££ big time

Alex Robbins is actually a thoroughly decent bloke, despite what you'd expect after knowing who his employers are.

I've just seen a link to this on FB... Spotlight: Eddie on living with a disability in Westmorland and Furness - Healthwatch Westmorland and Furness (healthwatchwestfurn.co.uk) 

For those I haven't met, this is me, talking with my local Healthwatch a few weeks ago about, well, life.

Speaking of rallying I'm on a job in Ceredigion (west Wales) today.  Came past all the service vans for the RAC classic with interesting old tat everywhere.  Saw Stratos, Kadette, Starrion, 911s and loads of MK2 Escorts.

Am off to marshall at Kershope on Sunday. Can't wait 😁

Biannual.

Last running coincided with storm Arwin(?) and left competitors (including Chris Harris) stranded in their cars overnight. Hopefully this one will be a bit less eventful.

I only found out at the last knockings that this was taking place this week when @catsinthewelder mentioned it - I'm not a big rally fan but there's a couple of good clubs around here and they have cars of all sorts. Good day out to watch (if it's not raining).
I couldn't find any info on viewing arrangements for R.A.C - I was in a hurry but their online presence is, err, underwhelming. Maybe they could take a leaf out of https://www.raliceredigion.co.uk/ ?
