I've only driven one once. It was a company jolly where we learned todrive 38 tonners on the circuit, a small twisty track timed in a GTi, and we were paired up. The last one was a Robin with a tyre on the bonnet and a tennis ball inside. The idea was to weave around the cones on the grass and do the fastest time you could while keeping the tennis mall in play. No only did I lose the tennis ball but ended upside down. Not exactly stable, these cars!

You couldn't do a hedgehog test in a Reliant, let alone an elk test! If you are going to have three wheels, have a Morgan; far more stable, but nevertheless I shall stick to four wheels.
