You'll have to wait til the auction in 2040 sometime. You probably won't go yourself, you'll send one of your family's robots.

I'll have 400-002 and 15 years and they'll be disposed of, so 2030 onwards, might have some spare cash by then!

I suppose it could be sooner -for political correct reasons they may switch over to a electric engined fleet....

The chances of obtaining a GMV are becoming even slimmer.

Interesting driving!

Who noticed the brake lock-up coming down the hill? (Insert eek smiley) It appeared to be ABS, so perhaps it was HDC working, but a Rover, or an Inter would have eaten that hill without the need for any braking.

Perhaps the drivers were hamming it up for the cameras, but the speedway circuit with excessive wheel-spin would have had my T109 torn up, if I had tried that in the '80's.

As slow as possible but as fast as necessary; is still the best approach for the safety of the driver and passengers and the wellbeing of the vehicle.

Being clowns for the cameras...

And the ABS is disconnected as soon as you engage the centre difflock   ;)

Noticed the locked up wheels. What sort of engine braking do you get in an automatic four wheel drive? I ask because I have never driven one.
I agree with Chazza, an Inter or Rover should walk down there without any trouble. If it was me driving it would be slower and less spectacular.
Notice the bow waves. If you did that at Pucka in 1970 you were volunteering for push ups.
