A little late but better than never. It was my birthday last month and my wife bought me a surprise weekend - a Caterham 7 and a Spa hotel for the weekend - what a combination!

After signing the obligatory forms and leaving a £300 deposit we were shown round our hire car - a metallic blue Roadsport SV 125 almost identical to the specification... Continue reading
