On the way to Heathrow on Sunday my taxi was overtaken by a Delorean. I had never seen one on the road before & it really looked superb


Cape Town also put on a show as we flew north south down the coast & round Cape Point to land.

Here is a view over the top of table mountain back north to Camps Bay, Lion's Head Rock and Signal Rock. You can also see Robin Island in the bay.


I suffered lunch on Monday at the Cape Town Yacht Club & here is the view from the port of the Table Mountain.

We saw a Delorean parked at Trago Mills a couple of weeks ago, they have nice lines it's just a shame they cost the UK taxpayers so much money.

Trago Mills, that takes me back a bit. I also liked the house of marbles.

Plus on a bike Bovey Straights is great fun as a route to the moors.

There a few more empty bottles of Stellenzicht Golden Triangle in the world now.

Today is Durban & Fri Jo'burg.

Will try to get to Klein Constantia next time.

There was an article in the Telegraph last year about a deLorean specialist in Texas who was about to start limited production again, but with a better drivetrain than that old PRV lump. I wonder if he's got production started now.

I was never particularly a fan. Seemed too heavy, too compromised and under-powered. It did look quite cool though.

You have to get it up to 88mph to activate the Flux Capacitor. After that it really shifts smile
