Sorts of Friction

I know, you are all experts on turning fossil fuels into rooster-tails of mud in the Brecon Beacons, but for those who are interested we found this Youtube Video of the operation of a friction clutch.

It’s particularly well done, both the animation and the explanation.

And it’s better than most of TV’s output from 6 til 10…

Range Rover’s Himalayan Hybrids


How can you not be proud of the new Range Rover Hybrid?

10,000 miles of continent crossing, averaging 36 miles per gallon and peerless luxury.

Roads are a simple concept. But they have histories too…

Whether they are mere tracks or sprawling carpets of motorway, roads are laid to enable point B to be reached from point A. Yet over the centuries the reason for wanting to reach B can change. Several thousand years ago, a major reason for people in the West wanting to go East was to buy silk. That demand, and the curious topography of much of the land in between, triggered the development of a network of trails stretching from the Mediterranean to China that became known as the Silk Road. It was a significant spur to civilisation’s advance from the second century BC until the late 14th century.

In a mission to test the new Range Rover Hybrid, Land Rover decided to drive three of them on a journey that will retrace many of those trails, and place a few challenges under the wheels of the most capable hybrid vehicle in the world.
