WhichCar Weekly podcast episode 68 now live

By Daniel Gardner, 29 Aug 2020 Podcast

2020 Land Rover Defender

Defender’s defence, a Tesla toppler and a fearsome finger fine

Returning to the virtual podcast studio, WhichCar editor Tim Robson and Motor Magazine associate editor Scott Newman join WhichCar senior journalist Daniel Gardner for a chat about the motoring world’s most recent developments.

Including one fellow in Germany who decided it was a good idea to give a speed camera ‘the bird’. It wasn’t. The ensuing fine was bumped up by a factor of 75 percent to the tune of about $2630 but is that fair? Dan thinks not.
