Reminds me of a social distancing tip for Audi drivers - approx twice the distance they usually drive from the car in front :mrgreen:
Judging by the A3 and TT who’ve followed me over the last few days, it’s about right.

Amazing variety of cars at Trentino last year including TVR, Lola, Ginetta - and this one.
For those who don't recognize it the number plate is a clue :wink:

The connection is indeed plywood.
