So much better: now that Matty has enabled it, just put the address like Marv did initially and it puts the video in your post. Not more image faffing. 8-)

Great video. I knew the reason 'why' but didn't know about the countries that had switched.

For a righty, driving on the left (changing gear with your weaker left hand) makes more sense and although I get used to driving on the right in LHD cars when I hire cars on the continent, it never ever feels natural, even after a week or more.

First time I drove a lhd car it instantly felt more correct, even on the wrong side of the road for the layout.

Tends to give better pedal spacing and a proper clutch foot rest too.

I spent 8 years or so with lhd cars as my main daily drivers. It doesn't seem worth it on mundane stuff, but for something a bit more special it wouldn't put me off in the slightest.

I quite like Fiesta ST's. Nice vid by Catchpole too:

I don't know why he bothers with these over-competent cars. He should just review modded Mazda MX-5s instead... I bet it doesn't even respond well to its head being kicked in... ;)

Love that he used the word enveigle.

Somehow I can't imagine any of the current evo staffers having such a florid vocabulary. Inadvertent grandiloquence aside ;)

Nic Cackett at Pistonheads is the main offender of such facile verbosity. Borderline unreadable as a result.

The GT3 video is fantastic.
