Keeping in touch

The latest in one-upmanship appears to be the installation of a radio-telephone in your car so you can keep in constant touch with your office, or anyone else for that matter. A firm called Carphones seems to be making quite an impact on this market and now have radio-transmitters based at London, Luton and Birmingham, the three areas overlapping to cover quite a proportion of the Home Counties...

1984 British Grand Prix race report - A four-ring circus

  After the Demolition Derbies in Detroit and Dallas, the Formula 1 "circus" must have breathed a sigh of relief when they returned to Europe to start some serious Grand Prix racing.

The Editor attends . .
