TG drives the Jaguar XKR-S in Norway
The Jaguar XKR-S is a special car in need of a special road. Thankfully, the Norwegians made sure it got one...

So we know the XKR-S devours miles like a Scandinavian trucker devours pickled fish, but - because some idiot forgot to check whether a road was open - we have no idea what it's like on wiggly stuff. I take a rueful nibble of Japp and wonder how long it'd take to fashion a snow plough for the front of an XKR-S. A clang from my phone. An email from a nice lady somewhere in the Norwegian tourism office who has talked to a nice man in the Norwegian roads department. They work quickly, these Vikings. The nice man in the Norwegian roads department says sorry for the inconvenience, and if we wouldn't mind terribly hanging around until tomorrow morning, he'll clear all the snow away for us and we can have the road to ourselves. The first car on the Lysebotn road in eight months. Couldn't have planned it better. In celebration, we polish off a Firkløver between us.
