2018 Awards

Post by BevC » Sat Nov 10, 2018 10:19 pm

As it’s that time of the year, maybe it’s time to think about awards for the year.

Worst roadworks 2018 - the endless stretch of 40mph average speed on the A14.
Best road - anything that is not a smart motorway (drives my new traffic camera sensors on my sat nav wappy)
Ugliest car (with the exception of the always present Nissan Juke) Jeep Renegade and the Citroen with the egg boxes on the side
Best new car (even though it is electrickery) Jaguar I Pace
Best car related event - the Breakfast Club meeting for the 50th birthday of the XJ at Classic Works
Corris Grey/Oyster Portfolio 180AWD

Yes! And the section on the A1 which is related to that work. Been the bane of my life for my 200 mile commute for far too long. Only another couple of years of the works to go...
