      What a fantastic taxi service you ran with such dream fleet of cars. Something for all tastes and aspirations to experience. Apex set the bar so high it will be difficult for another company to get anywhere near it. What a sight that GT2RS MR in the background is. Superb. Hope to get out and say hello one day.

    I think it is the right descision for you guys - Having been at a track day with the 218 and M2 vs being in both the M3 and the older blue? McLaren I can say that the track day was great, just hanging out in the tent having a chat to people :-)

    First time at the ring was a few years back. My friend who drove his Volvo there invited me. And yes, the ring was a very scary place for me, never ever was I putting my car on it. Got in as a passenger and that same day I did my first lap with my own car, still scary but the adrenaline.

    So..... what is difference between Taxi and track days? You're still out on the track with customers burning the equipment, those expenses still have to be covered. BTW - Robert you seem to be a gentleman first, businessman second. A very rare trait these days. Man would I love to burn my '78 RX-7 on the Ring with Mischa hanging on followed with a Redbreast 15 with the two of you. Good luck in '21.

    Ultimately with the COVID situation Taxi doesn't make sense, given the cost to bid for the license and inability to recover those costs due to taxi likely not being able to run for at least the next 18 months. Feel bad for Tim, I hope he can find a drive as he's super talented and deserves it. I think you guys also shouldn't kid yourself, sure you care about the core customers and we do love you guys, but lately the tune of you videos have changed a lot compared to what the "old audience" is used to. I guess you have to adjust your approach now with how the channels have grown but kind of miss the old "call a spade, a spade" way of doing it. It just seems a bit "social media posturing" lately, besides the E30 series which is still in your old style. Sorry just my opinion and not bashing you guys, you need to do what you you feel is right given the wider reach etc. Still looking forward to meeting you when we eventually can make it.

    I've not made it to the Nurburgring yet, but when I do, it wasn't to get a taxi ride - with all due respect I've had enough passenger rides - it was to drive my own car after I've taken some tuition in one of your rental cars. So I'm behind this 100%.

    One of the top things in my bucket list is to get to Germany and visit with you and the track with one of my cars. It may be a few years, but it's not out of the question financially. It's a matter of logistics because of a spinal cord injury. Plus, COVID sure threw a monkey wrench into the mix. I am a patient man, and will do what it takes to accomplish this goal.

    Its time for Robert to own his Muricaness. Factor excessive fuel and consumables into the price of a Mustang GT500 and pull the trigger on it as a taxi. Its as fast as a 991 gt3 RS on a couple u.s. road courses and it has a maintenance- free world class dct transmission. Learned men project its a sub 7:15 car before weight-stripping, alignment/suspension optimization and bolt-ons. You guys could really own this opportunity and be the global horse-whisperers of this once in a lifetime end of an era Mustang. The tuners in those German industrial parks would find some creative solutions to make this car even faster I'm certain.

I want to experience a lap at that pace, not just the amazing car but to actually feel those late braking points, high G’s and everything else that contributes to a really fast lap...

    Hi to both of you. I was hoping al the time, as probably some others, that you will continue with taxi, partly from being selfish, because that is one my “to do” list, partly because it seamed impossible not to run a taxi, having all those great taxi cars, special designed for that (4 seater!!!) and with all great drivers!! But hearing your explanation and plans, it is probably very good decision. Best thing is, there are other new options to get in “touch” with you and cars👍 in less stressful conditions and environment!! Thumps up. 👍
