Took two cars to our local test track a few weeks back (Longcross, home of The Corner, cobbled to the inside) for some action photos in pretty vile conditions. One was a Morgan 3 Wheeler which, although a 2014 model, is in effect a classic car from new. The other was an Audi RS4.

Apparently the Norwegians have a phrase. “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing,” they say. But whoever said it presumably wasn’t driving the Morgan at the time. 

It’s a car redolent of an era gone by. It’s also a romantic drive, watching the front wheels scythe through puddles and feeling the steering wheel writhe in your hands. Even in terrible conditions it’s a joy, but there’s no question you feel vulnerable. Your awareness is heightened.
