Cruising up the A483 towards Warrington in the Racy Red Bakery Truck, a black beema passed me after formating to have a good look at GTE553N. The reason? His number----M2 GTE.

Pity I don't have a 'smart' phone to take a pic
Especially as it was a stunning brand new Aston Martin V8 in grey metallic.
And the plate ... GREY 1

I've just noticed (on Goodwood tv) that Nick Swift has UP U2 on his Mini - but I don't think it's genuine, sadly.

No probably not, but I think you can certainly say that Nick Swift is one of the "characters" in historic saloons :)

Probably Guernsey, Luxembourg has a similar format but usually lower numbers.

Here are a few I just came across from the 2016 Tour Auto ...

Hope he drives that thing better than he parks it, if not he's going to kill someone.
Love the exhaust pipes!
