    A great spring day today. We went out for a pub lunch and an afternoon drive.

    My friend Gary kindly donated a set of 488 Challenge pads, so I'll swap those in to compare to the Scuderia pads.

    MOT on Saturday. Looking forward to driving it.
    Donít forget early cars had quite different air inlet ducts with small branch plenums.

    It could be acoustic treatments but it could also be Yamaha style YICS devices to provide low/range power smoothing /boosting.

    Will be fascinating to see what Trev throws up.

    That's a good point, Chris. I swapped to the earier ducts for improved sound, and I found the difference to be marked.

    My wife and I are away in the car for a three week road trip. Currently in Tuscany. Approximately 1,400 miles in at the moment - a few issues to report, but lots of smiles. I'll update when home.

    We were there all week, but Tuscany's a big place! Never a disappointment.

    Our place is just over the border in Umbria.

    The old Mille Miglia routes are just brilliant.

    One off the things I am going to do when I live there permanently is give guided tours for sections of the route(s) based on old road books and maps.

    Might have a rule of only Ferrari's allowed LOL

    PS Mark,

    This years Mille Miglia goes past Lago Trasimeno via Passiginano where there is a great old flying boat factory and associated history - The farm is at the top of the Hill from
    San Vito sul trasimeno - you can check on progress...
