We were sad to hear the news that stalwart of the Scottish petrolhead community, David Duncan (better known as ‘Tut’), recently passed away.

Tut was a huge character and especially well known in the track day and Lotus communities.

Known for always driving barefoot, the first time I met him was after a spirited drive in the highlands. A stone shattered the windscreen on his Elise, the interior was covered with glass, and he was completely unfazed!

Condolences to family & friends.

RIP Tut.

So sad. I remember him from the old sidc track days with his blue Elise, well vaguely blue, pebbledashed front. Driving it like he stole it. Some guy. I loved his attitude to it all.

My favourite Tut moment was him dealing with the junkie who was hassling the staff in his local Asda cafe while he was in getting breakfast. Dealt with it he did, then fled the scene before polis arrived and the "disabled pensioner" got his pension taken off him. The junkie got a trip to the hospital. That was the sorta guy he was. Acted in good faith and worried about any outcomes after. Thoughts to the rest of his family and everyone who knew him. Some boy that Tut.

I have many fond memories of David but he was the sort of guy who always left an impression. The cars were maybe even the less exciting side of his life. He’ll forever be in my heart and of course I’ll never ever forget the first time he pulled up in his new Elise.

So sad... I was part of Scottish Elise’s in its vibrant days of track days when your car insurance still covered you. Do you know the circumstances?

Here's our video from yesterday's tractor adventure, big thanks to Ken Fletcher for setting it up and to Thomas Sherriff & Co Ltd for letting us play around in their expensive toys 🙂 with Jon Doran ...

TT were invited to drive some huge agricultural machinery courtesy of Sheriff of Haddington and John Deere

As a tractor owner (a vintage International 434) I find it quite interesting TT are out trying some heavy horse power tractors. Tractors, like cars have very loyal followers usually in the Massey Ferguson, New Holland and Deere camps although my personal favorite is Fendt.
