You don't have to be Hercule Poirot to work out who the new directors of Hyperdrive work for - a company nobody has ever heard of but their money is as good as anybody's. Looks to be a good fit with their smart motor technology. Well done Laffy!

Had a quick scout through the background and can see that this would be life-changing, a bit like winning the lottery but better because you've worked hard for it, good on you.

So new challenges or a happy retirement, I'm guessing the former?

Thanks Bumble-that means a lot to me.

I’m going to spend some time thinking about what to do next and decompress a bit-off to our house in Mallorca for a bit and the football will be good as they got promoted to La Liga last season.

I think semi retirement will be best for me but I need to keep my brain active.Something usually comes along and I will still be with Hyperdrive in some capacity.

Out of curiosity Laffy what's your take on the move towards all electric cars. I'm not sure whether to take that step just yet, at least not until the infrastructure is in place all over the country.
Always thought that hydrogen would be a better option but that's lagging behind right now.

I’ve never been as popular!Thanks for all your kind words-for someone from Harrisburg, then Mawbray, it means a lot.

What’s my take on EV?Well the clever bit at Hyperdrive was surrounding myself with high quality automotive people but not taking the company in that direction, simply because there is no margin in OEMs.But the people who work in the sector are first class, drilled in process and used to working within tight supply chains.

I think the EV market is about to go crazy-the biggest drag to date has been the cost of the battery cells which are a disproportionate cost of the vehicle.But cell prices are coming down fast-improved chemistry and mass production.5 years ago, cost per KWh was around $1000-by 2023, we are looking at $100 per kWh-A sensational price reduction, coupled with longer life cells.

Range concerns are falling away too with the improved cell chemistry.

The other thing is the tax relief.New EVs get 100pc tax write off in first year and the benefit in kind is nominal.That is very compelling.

EV will see some casualties.I think car dealerships will largely be made redundant-they make more money off extras and servicing than car sales but EV will kill that market.It’s also all about weight going forwards so I’ve invested in a ceramic brake company called SCE.Worth a look-it’s listed on AIM.

The ‘dubious business practices’ was the one that was designed to cause collateral damage.I think this and the Queens Award for Enterprise will bury that one.

Nigel, we know you read this stuff. We know you may say that all this Lapping/Kirdi stuff is in the past, however it was a shameful time for the club, a time for which many will never forget or forgive.

Anyway, looks like Lapping is having the last laugh.

Enough is enough. Boycott for change.

I don't think anything that comes out of that clowns mouth would cause any serious damage.... anyone with half a brain cell knows he is a motor-mouthed buffoon with as much charm as 2 day old diarrhoea, the only reason he is still involved at CU is that it's his bolts and screws that is holding Brunton Park together!

I'm not completely mean though. If this acquisition has made you a bit of extra cash Laffy then well done. Spend some enjoying yourself but be sensible as well. Too many people come into a bit of money and feel like it will never run out, carelessly fritter it away and end up broke.
