Brilliant stuff ta

CH vid excellent too 😎
Some lovely stuff in there.

That blue 935(?) is ridiculously slow on the low-speed bends and ridiculously quick on the straights - must be intensely annoying.

The pass at 1min05 is just about perfect.

The M1 coming past at 11min20-odd sounds great.

Very interesting and enjoyable video. I quite like a VW California.

Leh Keen is a great driver, particularly in a 911. I read that he had some ‘off the track’ issues which prevented his career to progress further.

This one is great even filmed with a potato.

Has everyone found Harry's Farm yet? After the tractor and combine vids on Harry's Garage last year were popular he's started a new channel this month, which I only spotted by chance. It's about farming rather than just the machinery but it's great.

400 acres.

Sounds pretty big....

(Have just googled and apparently the average farm size in the UK is around 140 acres. So yeah - it’s pretty big).

We live about 25 miles from Harry's farm, in the middle of farmland, and the land round us is clearly farmed very similarly to Harry's (mostly arable - they've even changed from rape to linseed since we moved here two years ago) with some cows and sheep. The soil is quite different because we're below the Cotswold escarpment so it's clay, definitely not as good for drainage. Apparently they have 1500 acres. Our locals also seems to like up to date machinery, so another similarity. It'll be interesting to follow a season of Harry's Farm and compare.

Biggest farmer in the UK is James Dyson with more land than the queen :lol:

Dyson, the UK's biggest farmer who is moving (or has moved) to live in a flat in Singapore.

He should have stuck to the Ballbarrow.

ETA: Dyson was quoted in 2014 as owning more land in England than the Queen (in her personal name). So your stat is a bit incorrect.

I watched the Harry's Farm video about the sheep and cattle. It was pretty interesting.

That is indeed what Dyson invented in the 70s.

Yes the Crown Estate dwarfs all but you know what I mean.

And yes, like a typical Brexiteer he was very vocal about the benefits of leaving and then left the country soon after the vote...

You’re missing the Scotland part of the UK; there are plenty of estates bigger than 25,000 acres up there.

I like these and often consider a camper, but my word decent ones are costly. Could have several good hotel breaks a year for less money.

I know someone who buys them new and changes every 4-5 years. It’s about 15k in depreciation each time but divide that by 20 holidays and the figures suddenly look good.

Whilst Mito is correct, I think I will be keeping my GT3 and buy a tent. :D

Some nice bits on this wee clip.

The owner of *that field* must be very glad he left the gate off (or he's learned over the years to leave it off) :lol:
