Ten things we learned this week
Tiny paper F1 cars, and Top Gear in North Korea: it’s another weird week in the world of cars

A lady called Janet has made a Clarkson sporran and we don't know what to do with it
A sporran, for the uninitiated, is a traditional element of male Scottish Highland attire, a pouch secured by a strap in front of the groin of the wearer. Mmm.
This week, a sporransmith called Janet Eagleton (MBE, no less) sent this hand-made Clarkson sporran to the Top Gear office. It features images of JC in his permed prime, along with an image of a lady who isn't Jeremy. On the back there's some blue tartan, but absolutely nowhere to attach a super-unleaded nozzle.
So far as we're aware, JC doesn't own a kilt. Therefore we are not sure what to do with this kind gift. If you could find it in your heart to give this strange animal a home, please contact us on the usual address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
