We did it!! Car fixed after a late night trip to Woking, qualified Pole and led to the end to finish 2017 in style! It has been amazing in my first factory built race car, class winner by 163 points and overall winner by 50 points, 12 poles, 15 race wins, the third championship this car has won, the 28th race this car has won. Some pictures from the final weekend... @mclarenauto @mclarenglasgow @mclaren_gt @sunoco_uk @mattioliwoods @turatellotrailersuk @motorwerks_aberdeen @jetstream_motorsport
Alex WatsonNope, wouldn't pay as the public transport in Glasgow should be so much better but isn't. I was stuck behind a 20yr old black hack the other day and I've no idea how it passed emmissions test. Busses aren't any better. Trains are rush hour extortion.

David HenryThink there might be something up with that Punto 😆. Seriously though, if someone were to develop an electric drivetrain that you could retrofit into a black cab that would make a massive difference to city centre emissions. The government could give taxi owners a grant or interest free loan (that could be paid back based on fuel savings) to cover some or all of the cost of conversion. Just a thought...

Ross NixonWell I know Alexander’s have been doing hybrid and electric for a while, big design for different countries requirements, seem like Scotland don’t care about public transport and just charge every1 who drives instead. They just won’t fork out to improve like other countries have been for yeas in the buses, my last pupil was in charge of a 6 billion order from Canada

Robin GallowayNo, this if it happens will just kill glasgow resturants ect, so unless you live there its a no go area.
Alan MorrisonNot a chance I’ll pay for driving in that pot hole littered mess of a place.
Although, if the exemption list is correct, I could be exempt due to the nature of my work.
As it stands, it’s just going to be another terribly thought out and badly implemented idea from our incompetent government determined to someone outdo others without a single thought on how it will affect people.
So no great surprise really.

Fred MckechnieNope. Already pay loads of tax on fuel and emission based vehicle excise duty. It's a money generating scheme so will no doubt go ahead regardless of minimal impact it will have
Lesley McLeodThe fact of buses not fitted with start stop, first busses are automatic. I don’t think automatics can have start stop as there’s no clutch to engage the ignition, I could be wrong though

Gordon Raeit will kill the city like the pedestrian move in paisley did. I wouldn't go to the hassle or expense of getting a bus for my family of 5. if buses are the problem why not ban them instead. how will that affect taxis

Joseph BrammerAlso the fact you can't buy a Network return ticket until conveniently after 9am which is the time I need to be in town for...
And also the fact public transport is terrible and not always available at appropriate times etc etc. Ugh.

Dougie BrysonNo I won't be paying to drive to Glasgow. It would be unfair on all of the nurses, doctors, paramedics, police and fire service and anyone else who works in the city doing 24 hour shift work who need to drive due to public transport not operating over a 24 hour period

Joseph BrammerNo... who in their right mind would.
Except those who are basically forced to which is kinda unacceptable in that case.
But we pay to drive in this country and pay our insurance and fuel etc.
I want to park in town I don't want the inconvenience and extra cost of paying for an overpriced bus or train...

Kieran VealeI cycle to the centre most days for work. If it's pissing down I'll drive but if I'm going to be charged £20 then I'll just get wet.
