  1. If anyone is looking for a cheap tablet device then Amazon has reduced the price on their Fire & Kindle range by £30 for Black Friday. I expect prime membership to be reduced to £59 on Friday too. In real terms, it's a discount of £10 as the feckers put the price up £30 a couple of weeks ago. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01J94UF84
  2. F1 2018 Drivers list

    Agreed, it's a shame that so many teams are just chasing the money (Williams/Sauber...) instead of investing in fresh talent, won't be long before every driver is over 30
  3. F1 2018 Drivers list

    McLaren: Valtteri Bottas will stick with the team for another season. Lewis Hamilton entering the last season of a three-year contract signed at the end of 2015. Ferrari: Vettel and Raikkonen stay put. Red Bull: Ricciardo and Verstappen staying at RBR. Haas: Grosjean and Magnussen sticking with Haas. Renault: Carlos Sainz Jr. and Nico Hulkenberg. That leaves Toro Rosso, Williams, and Sauber each with two seats open, one seat still available at Force India (alongside Esteban Ocon) and another McLaren, which is expected to keep Stoffel Vandoorne but awaits Fernando Alonso's decision now that it's switching to Renault power.

    Toro Rosso goes with Gasly & Hartley for 2018, the only seats left up for grabs next season are at Sauber, and one at Williams (to replace Felipe Massa). Although according to some reports (which Williams deny) Kubica has signed a two-contract with Williams.
  5. WTF a decked Allegro

    Seems to be a thing: https://jalopnik.com/guess-what-this-austin-allegro-actually-is-underneath-1818542985 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Austin-Allegro-Volkswagen-Beetle-/162655171865 Although it takes a lot to beat an Allegro on a Suzuki Vitara chassis:

    ECU, immobilisers and keys - getting them all to speak to each other tends to the difficult part.
  8. F1 2017

    Seems it's transfer day in F1: Valtteri Bottas joins Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes for 2017. Williams have announced Felipe Massa is coming out of retirement to rejoin the Formula One team in place of Valtteri Bottas this year. Next up VALENTINO ROSSI?

    He's really lost form since winning his fourth title.
  10. ...by 5 seconds! Bugatti: "I'm the fastest car in the world, 0-400-0 km/h (248.5mph) in just 42 seconds" Koenigsegg: "Hold my beer"
  11. Just cruising along at 200mph, which happens to be 20mph over the Boeing 747 take-off speed. Ain’t physics great.
  12. They also topped out at 284mph
  13. They've only gone and smashed it again... The Agera RS broke its own record, completing the feat in just 33.29 seconds. That time is about 20 per-cent quicker than Bugatti could achieve. What’s even more incredible is that the Koenigsegg Regera may eventually complete a 0-400-0 km/h run in less than 30 seconds. The automaker believes the Regera will do 0-400 km/h in 20 seconds, approximately four seconds quicker than the 1,360 hp Agera RS.
  14. F1 2017

    Next week BBC Panorama has an exclusive on how the Birds of Feather actors lined their nests. Hopefully, they'll have found some real news to report on by then instead of trying to shame sucessful people who aren't (in most instances) doing anything illgeal.

    Who actually gives a flying ****? Hamilton's views on of the UK tax system are well reported. Back in 2007 when he quit the UK for Switzerland he stated that taxation was partly responsible for his decision, as he now lives in Monaco so should he still be paying UK tax? But fair play to his accountants on the convoluted setup: A new company owned by Hamilton, Stealth (IOM) Limited, leased the jet from Hamilton's British Virgin Islands company, Stealth Aviation Limited, and imported it into the Isle of Man. It was then leased on to a UK jet management company that provided Hamilton with a crew and other services - and which leased it back to Hamilton and his Guernsey company, BRV Limited. Lawyers acting for Hamilton said that the company made all necessary disclosures to Isle of Man officials, who approved the approach. Did BBC Panorama mention that the Labour Party rent their headquarters from an offshore trust?

    Jenson Button has just lost his "job" to a 17-year-old, Lando Norris will replace Jenson as McLaren reserve/test driver.
  17. Leasing for Dummies?

    You could try having a comparing it to some of the deals on Whatcar. https://www.whatcar.com/car-leasing/deals/jaguar/xe/?type=personal&fuel=diesel&derivative=146eni Think it’s the same model.
  18. Felipe Massa retiring from Formula 1

    Massa retiring (again) at end of 2017 season.
  19. Injection prices

    Boots will charge £50+ for Hep A and £30+ for cholera and Typhoid ... all which are free on the NHS, maybe that will make her see the local nurse
  20. Injection prices

    Depends on how long & where she's going in Thailand but the standard ones 3-in-1 teenage will have ticked most of the boxes and the rest free on the NHS. https://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/1071.aspx?CategoryID=70&SubCategoryID=175 If she's going backpacking near the Cambodia/Laos border she might need Malaria - I have a good supplier (cheap) for those pills if you need 'em. If she's staying the resort areas for a couple of weeks then she'll be safe enough.
