Nah, I wouldnt say Centralised....certainly not as centralised as France.

I see people saying things like Madrid host more events a year than London Paris hosts more major world sporting events a year than London...and Im reading it an thinking 'yeah, because there a many hosted outside of London, all over the UK'

lol reminds me of the Fawlty Towers sketch where, exhasperated with the complaining guest, exlaims, what did you expect to see from a hotel in Torquay? Herds of Wilderbeasts roaming across the plains? Krakatoa erupting?

Now here im lost...

One minute its ours and then it isnt...then its not a british company but a british designed and built car!
And then suddenly Lexus is british and then it isnt....oi vay

IMO the best cars in the world....eat your heart out Mercedes and the rest....

Bentley


Rolls Royce


Aston Martin


TVR


Jaguar


Land Rover


MG


Noble


OK, so when someone asks you which country make the best cars you say?

Britain....thats right
