Blast off! Looks as though the weather's alright and the cars are very smart too. Obviously you're wired for sound'n'vision Phil i.e you've got your compooter with you!
Be seeing you tomorrow in the luxuriously appointed Formula 1 hotel in Monswiller - 2 1/2 hours from here, across the Black Forest and over The Rhine and just a bit beyond Strasbourg. Don't drink more red wine than is necessary - follow Mat's example - 2 or 3 litres each and have a good drive tomorrow! :D

you can keep up to date with the BXagon if you are a member of FaceBook here
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
