Just returned from a trip to Corsica with a few Nylocers.
Here, hopefully, are a few pics

The link is faulty and links to scores of pics rather than a carefully chosen selection!
. I cannot, for some reason, delete the post.
I'll post another link later

Tried again and failed. Photobucket seems to want to include all pics in my library including one of a Pesky-lookalike which I wasn't going to inflict on uou.
Does anyone else share my view that PhotoBucket is a pile of sh*te?

Sorry for delay in responding, Glad the pics have found favour. . .
It was a great trip with, thankfully, no problems, except for the blue Elise S1 Honda on Tony Pearman. Throttle linkage broke but was repaired at the roadside with some great ingenuity and skill by Tony. Watched by a concerned bunch of hamfisted amateurs . . well, I fall into that category.

Wouldn't recommend Norway, terminally dull roads very heavily policed with cameras, many of which are average speed ones

These are a couple of the roads I've travelled around Molde, on the west side of Norway. Very light traffic and excellent road surface. It's such a shame that the ferry no longer runs from Newcastle to Bergen, although I believe there is strong support for it to be reinstated. If it is I will be one of the first to book a trip!

It's on our list of places to take the Lotus... Just need that crossing on again. Some good videos on the web of Norway roads.
