I Never Tire of Monaco

Once again the BBC’s video team produced a most entertaining introduction to the world’s greatest motor race at Monaco with a look at a day in the life of a Formula One big wheel!  Its not just the competition, its the glamour, the glitz, the yachts and the girls that make this event so special. What’s not to like, just for a day.

S**t Happens!

Seagulls are a part of living by the sea, and I love their angry cries and swooping flight, but they also bring problems. My good lady has a Mazda 2 which is her pride and joy, and over the past weeks it has been the target of many bombing raids by breeding gulls,  She tries very hard to remove any deposits as soon as possible but recently scratched a door quite badly by not using enough water. Seagulls eat grit to help to digest their food and this can result in real problems if you try to clean your car without washing the area thoroughly.

I tried several products to polish out the damage to the lacquer but  to no avail and so decided to invest in the highly rated Farecla G3 Professional scratch remover. I was completely astonished by the results achieved with this product, after only a few minutes the door  looked like new. and my wife was happy again!

The Engineered Diminishing Abrasive particles in G3 Scratch Remover break down consistently and reduce in size as you remove the scratch or scuff, finally turning into a smooth wax polishing fluid. This means it won’t harm your bodywork. A 500ml bottle of this magic liquid costs only £8.35 from Amazon, click on the logo to get some now!

A Funny Thing Happened…

Two things you don’t want to happen while driving your 8000bhp funnycar at 260mph:

1. The bodywork to come off
2. The engine to explode

Which is pretty unfortunate for drag racer, Matt Hagan, because that’s precisely what happened during qualifying for the Four-Wide Nationals in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hagan’s marginally terrifying funny car dropped an intake valve into one of its cylinders, launching big lumps of engine and bodywork across three of the four race lanes.

Amazingly, he was completely unharmed, affording him the opportunity to get in a massive great big strop after the crash. Which seems perfectly reasonable – this is the third consecutive year that Hagan’s been involved in an explosion at the Four-Wide Nationals

My Other Car is a Mazda 2…..

Now see how they did it…
