Just a quick update from me, but a very cool one!

I’m sure a lot of people have watched the thrilling Rush  last year, and Senna previously. Well, a small part of that excitement is coming to our neighbours in Hampshire this very Spring, in Beaulieu. I strongly advise you to reserve the weekend of the 5th & 6th April 2014 in your diaries and go and see the MotoExpo, which features a wide range of eco-friendly, or at least more eco-friendly, fast machines.

Featured particularly are demonstrations and rides in electrical cars, a 400m circuit race and the latest in electrical and hybrid bikes and cars.

Zagato Volpe electric car video

Check out the video for the new single-seat electric Zagato Volpe car (classified as a ‘quadricycle’ or a micro-car).

According to the car breakdown company ETA, as well as the fully electric version, the Volpe will be available as a petrol or LPG hybrid. They said, “A retail price of £5,600 would make the Volpe no more expensive than many of the larger petrol scooters and it would be a drier, safer and greener way to travel around a city.”

    "That`s the trouble with so many of these concept cars – so few make it to production. As far as I know, and you may know differently, the only Quadricycle type vehicle currently available to buy in the UK is the Renault Twizy. Which by all accounts is a lot of fun – and practical (if you don`t mind the lack of doors in the standard equipment – add-ons being available). "

    "Great car, trouble is you can’t buy one, in any country I know of. Cannot make them or produce them, unless you know different? "
