This is a quick note just to say that we will be attending this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, and will be offering a 10% discount code to anyone who comes to see us at the event.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of our favourite events on the motorsport calendar, as it gives regular punters a great chance to see race cars and bikes spanning 60 years of motorsport, driven by some of the biggest names in the business as they make their way up Goodwood Hill.

As well as the action on the road, crowds can expect an air show, live music, and, of course, some top motorsport merchandise. Which is where we come in! Now, we will not be the only vendors in the grounds of Goodwood this weekend, so we’re going to have to be a bit crafty to get the drop on the competition. Therefore, we are offering a flat 10% discount to anyone who quotes the codeword MANSELL to us when buying. That’s all you have to do. One word, and the discount is yours.

Obviously, being a highly covert, top secret operation, this codeword should be kept under wraps. That said, if you absolutely can’t resist, I suppose that you could spread the word around if you know anyone who might be attending.

We hope that you can make it, and be sure to come and visit us if you are.

Defending MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi has this weekend released a statement from his home in Italy with news of his condition, and his return to the world of motorcycle racing.

“Three weeks have passed since the accident and two since I was discharged from hospital, and I am very happy about how my recuperation is progressing. I am feeling a lot better and I’m starting to live a semi-normal life again, although for a completely ‘normal’ life I will have to wait until I’m back on my bike!

“I am walking with crutches and since a few days I’ve been able to put my foot to the floor. Honestly, I didn’t expect to feel this good just a few weeks after the incident, and I mean both physically and in my ‘spirit.’

“The rehabilitation is continuing as usual, both sitting in the hyperbaric chamber and with some exercises in the gym. Unfortunately my shoulder is still giving me some pain but I am working on the muscles to reduce the pain a bit. If the rehabilitation proceeds without trouble and if everything continues in this way, then my objective is to return at the Czech Grand Prix in Brno.

“I have started to leave the house and my good friends haven’t left me on my own for even a minute, although I’m not used to spending so much time in Tavullia! I miss my bike, my team and the paddock a lot and this ‘new’ sensation is pushing me to get better as quickly as possible.

“I’ll speak to you, but more importantly see you, soon.

“Ciao, Valentino Rossi.”

So there you have it. We’ll see you in Brno Vale, it’ll be good to have you back.

We know Jenson and Lewis can drive but how much do they know about the mechanical aspect of their car?

This latest viral video from McLaren and Vodafone is quite entertaining. We see Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton being left by their mechanics to put together what looks like the 2008 McLaren from a load of parts.

It’s clear Hamilton has had a bit more practice with the tools than Button, taking control of the wrench! He says he always enjoyed taking things apart…though Button clearly doesn’t have confidence that he can put things back together! I wouldn’t want to be Gary, having to test this car!

It’s great to see the chemistry between the two Brits and they seem to be genuinely happy working together.

Is there a career as a mechanic when they hang up their drivers’ overalls? We’re not so sure. Don’t give up the day job boys!

The Woman is waiting for a bus. The Boy, forward and right at the edge of being cloying, confronts her and attempts to befriend her, so that he can enlist her aid in acquiring a six pack from the shop around the corner. The Man is wise to the Boy, and skeptical of the Woman, but simultaneously exhibits affection and attraction, respectively..

The Daytona Lady Star GTX boot is the ladies version of Daytona’s Travel Star GTX boot, one of the company’s top touring and commuting boots. It’s a highly waterproof boot made from hydrophobic leather, which is then reinforced with a Gore-Tex membrane. As with many of Daytona’s non-racing boots, you get full calf adjustment, twin zips, a galvanised steel inlay, 3M Scotchlite reflectors and so on.

But this Lady Star boot has something a little bit special for the ladies. It has extra adjustment for the calves which female riders and pillions sometimes require, so we are told. But, uniquely, this boot also has a 2.5cm hidden lift in the heel. Occasionally, ladies find they have to stand on tip-toe when the bike is stopped at, say, the traffic lights. But with these boots, you get a bit of extra reach whilst still being able to keep your entire foot on the floor. Very clever. The perfect ladies boot.
