    The rich kids of Instagram are back: https://www.instagram.com/taxtherich100/ Glorious!
  2. Ferrari 288 GTO 'recreation'

    Although for a £30k toy I'd rather be having this, should be able to take the punishment of Tesco car park: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BENTLEY-CONTINENTAL-GT-RALLY-EDITION-AS-FEATURED-ON-NAT-GEO-SUPERCAR-MEGABUILD-/272882174809 It sold for 40k on ebay last month but seems the buyer pulled out.

  4. Ferrari 288 GTO 'recreation'

    Not a bad looker for a kit car: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ferrari-288-GTO-recreation-tribute-based-on-3-0-litre-V6-Toyota-mr2-/302478941000
  5. New pants please

    Oh look, an understeering RS3 then again who tries to take 90-degree blind bend at 125mph. (skip to 40secs)
  6. True, the Chron is a GT whereas the Agera RS is a pure weapon but that's a massive time gap at those speeds.
  7. F1 2017

    The Russian Torpedo is back for the rest of the season following the news that Palmer will leave Renault after the Japanese Grand Prix, it’s been confirmed that Carlos Sainz Jr. will make an early switch to the team. He’ll leave Toro Rosso for and drive for Renault from the United States GP onwards ahead of his full season for the team in 2018.

  9. F1 2018 Drivers list

    The biggest issue with Kubica is season long fitness is unknown. I'd like to see him take a Sauber seat next year, ideally Ericsson's as he's just a waste of grid space, always finishing +2 laps down. F1 should also get rid of Palmer & Kvyat to make room for some fresh talent.
  10. F1 2018 Drivers list

    Robert Kubica and Paul di Resta will both test for Williams in Hungary later this month in bid to land a 2018 seat. http://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/41483083 I think Kubica will destroy PDR on the test day, bringing a big bank balance and PR bonus to the team, Massa won't be happy as his seat they're contesting.
  11. Monarch (financial trouble bewing?)

    I don't think prices have gone up across the board, available direct tickets sold out PDQ as Monarch going under wasn't exactly a last min thing. The LCC's fly 737 / A320 carrying around 180 pax so there wasn't the spare capacity to start with. Ryanair traditionally flew the "rescue" flights as they have spare planes, only this year they haven't got the pilots. As I said above it's a perfect-storm: lack of supply (Ryanair's lack of available pilots / Monarch (& Air Berlin) going bust / half-term) Vs strong demand on the winter sun route. The real winners will be Jet2 who moved operations south this year, the 750k people who booked Monarch tickets for some winter sun or to visit Santa in Lapland will be looking elsewhere for tickets, once they've sorted out their section 75 claims. Geek Note: Ryanair fly 737-800 whereas Monarch flew leased A320's, therefore, pilots can't easily transition across. Air Lingus, who also fly A320's are actively recruiting Monarch pilots. Some City analysts are also questioning whether Norwegian can survive the quiet winter period.
  12. Monarch (financial trouble bewing?)

    Supply and demand, was under £800 (120-150 pp) when I looked this morning. Edit, Just looked again - all outbound direct flights are full hence the mega price. School holidays, cheap fates and small planes I bet they sold out quickly.
  13. Monarch (financial trouble bewing?)

    Those affected by Monarch’s demise are asked to visit the dedicated website monarch.caa.co.uk set up by the CAA for more information on bookings and assistance. https://monarch.caa.co.uk/
  14. Monarch (financial trouble bewing?)

    Options are Ryanair or Jet2 (from BHX, EMA, LBA or STN) or EasyJet (from LTN) - all have seats available, at a cost.
