TESTING NEW ROADS AND DRIVING GLOVES
So all plans that were made a few weeks ago added up in the best possible way. Together with Joost Römelingh we are organising the Autumn Tour for Lotus Club Holland. 50 Lotus cars and about twice as much people will attend this annual club meeting that will have its start and finish at the Brakkesteyn Estate in Nijmegen.
After preparing the first draft of the route with MyRouteApp field work was done some weeks ago. And consequently altering of the draft was necessary in order to swap some plain, ordinary A-roads for thrilling, curvy B-roads.
And, if we may say so, we did a great job with altering! It’s almost perfect now, given the circumstances we are preparing a route in The Netherlands which is too crowded to make never ending winding roads possible and to avoid speed bumps at all. Nevertheless, we’ve prepared a route for ‘the drivers’. Just one or two hick ups need some altering, like this one…
We’ve used the test driving of the Autumn Tour route for some more testing. Test driving the Fort Belvedere touch screen driving gloves that is.
Although not as soft and sticky on the steering wheel as the British Racing Green Off White Driving Gloves in lamb nappa leather we’re testing as well, these gloves have the advantage of being able to operate your devices with a touch screen like your sat nav system. Of course typing a message with your smartphone will be a challenge, but that’s not the idea behind these gloves. After all, they are driving gear. And cool driving gear too!
The extra perforation holes to make operating a touch screen possible have the side effect advantage of cooling your hands on a hot summer day. Which it was while testing these gloves.
Serious testing will be done in a few weeks time when we’re participating in Stelvio 20 Years Revival. But the first impression is a positive one. So keep on the look out for the full review report on this website in a few weeks from now!
