A friend of mine just had her vehicle stolen, with very little chance of recovery. Last night it was there, this morning it’s gone, and how far is it to Cambodia?
Last week I stated that Italy has produced some famous cars. One had a production run of almost 20 years, with six versions and even an all-electric one.
I was reminded of the state of the pharmaceutical industry the other day when a new ex-pat from the USA asked me about the safety in buying drugs/medications in this country over the counter or from the net.

The Nitto 3K promoters have another of their three day meetings this weekend. However, before you go out to the local Bira Circuit, this is an “away” meeting and we will be competing on the Kaeng Krachan circuit in Petburi, which is out near Cha-Am. This is about four hours away for the Pattaya competitors, so we are sharing transporters to get the race cars to the meeting.
The next car club meeting will be at Jameson’s Irish Pub on Soi AR next to Nova Park. The meeting is on Monday 9 July at Jameson’s at 7 p.m. A totally informal meeting of like-minded souls to discuss their pet motoring (and motorcycling) loves and hates.
Last week I stated that the Americans were much in advance of the F1 circus as far as some safety features were concerned.

Well, we learned that it isn’t over until it’s over! The podium with Fernando Alonso (Ferrari), followed by Raikkonen (“Lotus”) and Schumacher (Mercedes) was an incredible result that could not have been predicted, even at mid-distance. It also showed the depth of the influence of Ferrari, with all three drivers world champions, one a current Ferrari driver and the other two ex-Ferrari champions.
