A day for speed! On this day in 1904 Louis Rigolly, a Frenchman, became the first man to drive a car at over 100mph at Ostend in Belgium in this 13.5lt monster:
In 1925 Malcolm Campbell exceeded 150mph in a Sunbeam at Pendine Sands in Wales.
Hopefully there won't be any racers out to emulate them today.
As it is a good cafe with a nice terrace we are going to Cafe Nouveau in Tytherington today.
