Great new for all transport providers. The chancellor has announced the planned 3p hike in fuel duty for september will be scrapped which will be very welcoming to all our ears. For many fleet operators, fuel is one of the biggest expenses. This means any fluctuation in costs can have serious knock of effects for other areas of the business. All we need now is a very long over due decrease in fuel prices!…We can hope!

After completing 3 days of testing at Sepang, Valentino Rossi was finally back up to where he belongs. And clearly a more upbeat Rossi that we simply haven’t seen since his failed move to Ducati! “I’m very happy, all three days were very good. We worked hard on the bike and improved day by day. The third day was the best, we were able to stay less than half a second from pole position and the lap time is higher which is interesting. Today we finished third in the standings which is theoretically the front row so I’m very happy with this first test.”
We all at courierfrog are all in agreement that this would be an amazing purchase for one lucky person. The legend Ayrton Senna’s 1st F1 car, the Toleman TG184-2. Although as much as we’d like to take it round a track we’d hate to imagine having an accident in her! To whoever buys her we wish you all the luck in the world.

BMW is convinced the electric car revolution is coming and last month established the i sub-brand to structure its assault on the falling market.
The i3 is a compact all-electric urban runaround with a 100 mile range, and the i8, a 349bhp four-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid sports car capable of 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds and fuel economy of 104mpg.
Both of cars featured in the ad are expected in 2013 and should be sufficient to enthrall anyone with even a passing interest in electric cars.
