• Terrier on Tour: one campervan - a Ford Terrier - and two men took just three days to drive from the UK to the Ford factory in Istanbul. A staggering achievement. More later. Photo @WellhouseCamper.

  • There was almost a week’s worth of major crashes in France yesterday. So far there’s no rhyme or reason (or indication of how many casualties were involved). It started in the morning with an accident on the outbound A13 in Paris followed later by jams both ways into Strasbourg on the A4/A35. The A1 northbound into Lille and A29 westbound from Amiens both also saw multihour delays in the afternoon followed by more accidents on the A7 into Lyon, the A62 towards Toulouse and the A86 ring in north Paris. Finally, the A10 at Orleans was completely blocked by an overturned truck in the evening, followed by a truck fire at almost the same location overnight with delays lasting until this morning.

    Crash-fest France.

  • Police in the South of France were surprised to find a teenage boy behind the wheel of this Nissan GTR after it sped past them at 212kmh (130mph) yesterday. The seventeen year old was flashed by mobile radar on the N88 at Yssingeaux south west of St Etienne. Drivers caught at more than 40kmh over the speed limit normally face having their licences taken away on the spot, though not in this case as the young lad hasn't yet passed his test.

  • Porsche submits a planning application today about erecting this Goodwood-style sculpture between its museum and factory on Porscheplatz in Zuffenhausen north east Stuttgart. Twenty four meters high, and ten wide, each of the three steel spikes has a different 911 model at the top to represent fifty years of the car’s manufacture at the site. Presuming permission is granted, the sculpture will be built next summer and unveiled in the autumn.
