Speed Cameras *Conditioning* Drivers?

Hi All, I was driving down the M1 on Sunday evening after racing at Donington Park. If you are interested in racing, you can see the pole position lap we did here (opens in new window). I haven’t done an awful lot of motorway driving in the last year in the UK, but when I have, I’ve noticed that I’m …

Speed Camera Scam

Dear All Happy 2022! It occurred to me a few weeks ago when I was on my way to Brands Hatch for the final race of our season that I hadn’t written a BTST newsletter in quite a while… The reason – of course – is that I’ve been so pre-occupied with the launch of TALEX 3 that I’ve had …

So… I Had Covid

On Monday I came down with the dreaded covid, after the Mrs had a few days before. She took three lateral flow tests, which all showed 2 lines, meaning …”covid”! I initially said I wasn’t interested in taking a test because I knew what I had. I’ve had the seasonal flu 4 or 5 times before in my life and …

2 Hard Shoulders… Or None?

Dear All, As many of you know, I spent around 2 months in the US recently. The vast majority of the time was spent in West Virginia, which is an absolutely lovely part of the World… “Americans” as they are often collectively known by us Brits generally get an incredibly bad press in my experience. In general they are lovely, …

Face Recognition Cameras on UK Roads?

Dear All, A friend sent me a video last night from a guy called Rob Braxman in California. In the video Rob went through all the ways that facial recognition cameras are being rolled out around the World to remove our privacy and impede our freedom. Just a very short section of the video was about the face recognition cameras …

Who OWNS You?

Dear All, “Happy new year”… It hasn’t quite got the same ring to it this year, has it? :-) I’ve been mulling over what I should write about in the now traditional new years message to Members for about a week now… To be honest, I’ve been torn and it’s been stressing me out quite a bit! I’ve reached some …

Bitcoin All Time High!

Ten Months ago we released a report to BTST Members about Bitcoin. It explained in great detail why I strongly believe it’s essential to protect your hard earned wealth against the inflation of the banking system we currently live under. On the day the Report released, the price of Bitcoin was around £7800. Yesterday, Bitcoin broke its previous all time …

Police *EVERYWHERE* (& TALEX 3 Update)

Dear All, I went on 135 mile road test yesterday (Friday) to give my feedback on the latest TALEX 3 firmware upgrades. We’ve resolved almost all of the teething issues and I expect the next version to be the final product… The road test took me along various types of roads, and through several towns. What really stuck out to …

Speed Cameras Switched on Because of “Air Quality”…

We put a poll to Members a couple of weeks ago to ask how many times you had ever seen “Pedestrians in the Road”. The results — to no ones surprise — were that 92% of Members had never or very rarely seen them. Only 8 people of the 943 who voted claimed to have seen pedestrians every time they’ve …

The Latest Domino Falls: Cineworld Collapses

Dear All, It was back in April that I last talked to Members about the dire state of the UK (and World) economy… Cineworld, the 2nd largest cinema chain in the UK, have just announced they are going out of business with the loss of 45,000 jobs. Most of these people aren’t going to find work elsewhere, because the government …
