Yes both LeMans cars were genuine, owned by two UK Club Members.
The Laguna Blue belonged to one of the Dutch members.

Turning out to be an expensive weekend - got a fixed penalty notice from Northumbria in the post this morning. FIrst speeding ticket in over 20 years of driving. :cry: :evil:
Remember boys and girls - think of the children :roll:

Douglas might have one too as he would've been right behind me.

You didn't come back on the A697 Coldstream road by any chance did you, guys? It used to be one of my fave roads but has become unnecessarily blighted with cameras.

Ironically, I believe cameras do save lives but not sure about some on the A697. OK, the one near the hospital yes but the one on the long straight is pointless IMO.

2 of us came back up that way but, I don't recall any flashes. If you know where those cameras are then should be okay. :lol:

do what i did. save your pocket money and buy a ROAD ANGEL. fantastic when your near a camera or a black spot all hell brakes looses fashes and alarms it even tells your true speed (car speedo about 5mph off true speed) great piece of kit but does cost a bomb.

(2 of us came back up that way but, I don't recall any flashes. If you know where those cameras are then should be okay)
gavin i dont know the road but in england they use cameras to work out your speed between 2 points if you got there before a certain time you get done i think the cameras are called SPECS nasty sneeky stuff from our friend's in blue :wink:

Just a small sideline to the topic
I have used the road angel for 2 years now and found it invaluable till now :(
The new problem is the speed camera partnership sneeky vans with a range of 1 kilometer
And 1/3 of a second to get a lock and picture
It just isn`t cricket :evil:
by the time the laser alert part of the road angel lets you know you have been "lit up" the Notice of intended cash removal is in the post
(thank you Fife police :oops: )

Have you tried the new road angel you can set it up so you can get the alerts from up to 1200 meters i think it is. as you say an invaluable piece of kit that legaly helps you to keep one step ahead of the (mostly ilegal) speed cameras :twisted:


hows this for madness

Last Year....
Four of the world's top rally drivers have been banned from driving after being caught in speed traps in south Wales during the British leg of the world championships last year. :lol:

German Armin Schwarz, Belgian Freddy Loix, Swede Daniel Carlsson and Briton Kris Meeke were all handed suspensions by magistrates in Neath
