Looks like a good weekend coming up so intrigued what all your plans are.

Me, I’m based in Edinburgh so will be taking my 360 down to St Mary’s loch in the Scottish Borders via Peebles and hopefully grabbing a bite to eat at a small cafe there, then onto Moffat and back to Edinburgh.

Great road trip and really looking forward to it.

Over to you.

BEACH ! nice and early in my boring daily. . No car plans ,traffic to silly in the south this time of year even more so when hot .Looking forward to going for spirited drive in September and October when things get a little quieter.Scotland sounds a great place for a bash if and when it stops raining.

I think we're supposed to be going "to the coast" tomorrow - my concern is, so will everybody else.............

My car was actually having some work done this week, and they called yesterday and said "actually we've decided we need to do a bit extra, and we can't get the part until Monday - can we keep it over the weekend?". Er - no - considering the weather this weekend, you can't!
Got it back last night and they can have it again next week.

No chance , It's gone bananas down here traffic wise ,I've just spent two and a half hours to cover twenty one miles in the New Forest this afternoon. I suggest you bring a helicopter .

Yup I figured if I have to get an SUV, then at least get something with character - the weight also helps given the trailer plus car is probably 2.5t. Sounds like thunder too

Not surprising at all,it was on that very hot 33plus degree's Friday ,did the same route Sunday and it was a lot quieter,with a lot of people still on furlough and the kids on a extended summer holidays on sunny days it's been a mad house ever since lockdown was lifted ,Maybe a bit selfish of me but roll on September and October when the forest should get quieter and we can get the cars out again and go for a proper drive.

The Salzburgring is ok, but not great. Am looking forward to being at the Red Bull Ring twice next month - that should be fun

Yes that's a corker by all accounts. What rubber are you running ?
