STAY SAFE

Know anyone who needs to leave the house by car first thing in the morning but who might be at risk due to drinking alcohol the night before?

Of course, we all like to think that everyone we know, including ourselves, are sensible and would never drink and drive especially when feeling hungover – but what if we didn’t have a hangover and didn’t know that we were doing just that without being aware of it?

At Christmas with alcohol consumption so much higher, everyone needs to make absolutely sure that they don’t risk their licence, their life or the lives of others More >

SURF’S UP – SCOOBYBITS RELAUNCH MURTAYA

Great to hear that the Impreza-based Murtaya is about to make a return to the kitcar scene. After being away for several years it’s now under the control of Subaru expert and boss of Scoobybits, Jason MacDonald at his base in Cornwall.

The car was recently re-launched at the Watergate Sprint event in Newquay and Jason is very enthusiastic about the future. Scoobybits are already a one-stop destination for Impreza owners so it’s a logical step for the company to also encompass the Murtaya.

Jason told me: “Lots of people get very excited about building their own car but can get confused More >

NO SMOKE MOTOR FOR MOKE

MOKE International has announced the introduction of the all-electric MOKE. Reservations can be made now with the first deliveries scheduled from Spring 2022.
