Great fun today at Thruxton with the Vauxhall #VXR team. 20 laps around the track in a mix of the Corsa, Astra and Insignia VXR models. Looking forward to next year already...!

Had a great day at the #Goodwood #Festivalofspeed yesterday. #FoS . Some incredible machinery on display. The #McLarenF1 Longtail was a particular favourite!

Anyone off to the #RIAT International Air Tattoo this year? Here are some photos I just stumbled on from 2010 thanks to the new #GooglePhotos app.

Over the weekend I took the #Mercedes  C-Class ( #C220d   AMG) and the #GLA   C220d AMG 4Matic out for a test drive. Despite having the same engine they felt much more varied to drive than I expected.

The GLA felt somewhat unhurried with it's lack of 'Agility' settings and the raised ride height also meant it felt much less composed around the corners. The steering also seemed to feel less precise than the SLK 250 CDI AMG that I'm used to driving, with what felt like inconsistent weighting through corners at moderate pace.

Stepping into the C220d felt a very different car, with a feeling of greater fit and finish and better materials on the main touch points.

Starting off in Comfort mode the car felt smoother and more precise than the GLA, but when switched into Sport and Sport+ modes it felt a much more sporty proposition overall. The steering feel was the thing I noticed the most, feeling much more balanced and consistent compared to the GLA.

I've always felt Sport mode in the SLK makes the throttle too sensitive, with fairly minor bumps in the road translating to small movements in my foot on the accelerator, leading to a feeling of jerkiness. In the C-Class though this effect seems to be less pronounced, perhaps due to the lesser horsepower (167hp), but I'm hoping the German engineers have in fact fixed this!

The next question for me now would be, how does this compare to the #Jaguar   #XE . Hopefully I'll be having a test drive soon before making my mind up which I'll be placing an order for within the next few weeks.

As a final plus point, the C-Class leasing deals seem to be becoming more competitive once again, which is a good thing with the XE, mid-life facelift 3-Series and all new Audi A4 looming on the horizon.

An #easter weekend in Portsmouth and Barry Island. Stumbled upon a #Wimpey which was delightfully old fashioned and these incredibly bright beach huts!

Disorganised and disappointing. We pre-booked a table, arrived at our allocated time to find no suitable table ready. Managed to find another bigger table which we had to clean up ourselves, then had to wait a further 15 minutes to get two menus to share between us. We had to chase a barman to actually order as the main waitress hadn't gotten around to it and the food (even with no pizza available as they had run out) took forever as well. I went for their beef chilli option which was fairly flavourless and didn't feel good value. The bar is in a lovely location, with harbour views and occassional live music, but during my visit the food service was woeful. There are plenty of other local pubs to spend your money in in the neighbouring villages.
