Being a classic enthusiast, I bet you are loving these cold short days and long winter nights aren’t you?! Yeah, me neither, although I did manage to get out for a spin in the Ital last weekend. I headed over to for their New Year meet, it was so good to be out and about again, plenty of friendly faces, plenty of lovely metal and plenty of car chat. Perfect, and just what everyone needed after all the turkey, sprouts and chocolate. A real tonic.
