Popped into McLaren Glasgow for a look at the Senna GTR, just when you thought the Senna couldn't get any more aero. The GTR is on display over the weekend if anyone wants to go for a look.

Got to drive both variants of the MX-5 today with Mazda UK... The soft top and the RF coupe with its folding hard top.

Both are fantastic fun to drive but I’d go for the soft top version which felt a little livelier, even though the weight difference is surprisingly little. Just 43 kgs.

But the RF is so pretty

I've had the soft top in my life for 2 years now and absolutely love it 👍 Can't see me getting rid of it as long as I remain nimble enough to get in/out of it 🙈 The thing that put me off the RF - other than the price difference - was the limitations of the mechanism. I'll throw the soft top up/down at anything up to 40mph and it takes a split second. The RF top takes a long time and the speed limitation is very restrictive.

Awesome wee cars. I hope Mazda keep going and ever improve the car. Personally I think the latest version RF is by far the best looking MX5 ever produced. I would love a go in one just to see how good it feels and compare it to the RX8.
