Pot Noodle GTI – On Tour

Posted on 09 June 2011 by Chris Ford

Pot Noodles are and have been a staple in every single mans cupboard for years, maybe because they are quick require no preparation or cooking skills other than boiling the kettle or maybe because they are just damn tasty either way my cupboard always has a few and I’m sure yours does whether you admit it or not!

Up until now Pot Noodles have been meat free, but that’s all about to change with the launch of Pot Noodle GTI. Each pot has real meat in the pot and now doesn’t even require the boil of a kettle! simply peel back the lid, nuke, stir and scoff! ….. Its just the right amount of food before a night out.

There are four flavours – if you’re a smooth Italian on the road then Spaghetti Bolognese is for you. If you like it hot and spicy and wheel spins are your thing, then grab the Tikka Masala. If it’s all about the spoiler and exhausts then get stuck into the Mexican mayhem of Chilli Con Carne, and finally if you like a smooth sweet ride then  Sweet and Sour is the one for you.


To celebrate the launch of Pot Noodle GTi, the Pot Noodle GTi hummer is going on a tour of the country. The Hummer will roll into each city at 1pm on the dates in question, and Pot Noodle GTi fans will participate in a series of challenges, which are all about getting ready for the ultimate night out and the person with the highest score on the day will be crowned the Pot Noodle GTi winner, receiving an Ultimate Night Out worth a grand for them & their mates! The winner & their mates will get fully fuelled up with Pot Noodle GTi, get picked up and taken to a top night club, and receive free entry, reserved seating, and a bar tab to keep partying into the small hours. While you’re down there, you can sample the Pot Noodle GTi, and also jump into the Pot Noodle GTi hummer for a pre-night prep session – a fashion blitz, a brand new haircut, a styling, or to check out your chat up lines! You might even be lucky enough to get a pair of the limited edition Pot Noodle GTi lucky pants… You’ll have to head on down to find out how!

Head over to for more info and check out the tour dates on the map below, and get down there early and register for the competition as only the first 15 people will qualify to enter which takes place between 3-4pm at each venue.

A Car that Parks Itself – The New Ford Focus

A Car that Parks Itself – The New Ford Focus

Posted on 02 June 2011 by Chris Ford

Recently I was asked to the launch of the new Ford Focus, Im not much of a car man so intially I thought I wouldnt be that interested as well a Ford Focus is just a Focus isnt it? well it turns out no its not.

Ford have given the Focus a massive redesign both in and out, and there’s certainly no mistaking the new Ford Focus for the old one with its modern sleek looks its a lifetime away from the old S Reg Focus bought when I first past my test.

I think whats most impressive to me though is the tech Ford have installed into the Focus, it makes me think how far away can we be from a car that drives us home from the pub? … yeah ok I wish

Heres a break down :

Active Park Assist:

This is probably one of the coolest features of the new Ford Focus. It’s called ‘Active Park Assist’ and as the name suggest the car can literally park itself. The clever technology checks the space around the car first to measure the space around it (essential for narrow/busy roads) and then measures the space of the chosen car park space to ensure a perfect fit before automatically steering itself in

Blind Spot Information System:

Using radar sensors, the Blind Spot Information System has been designed to see things that might be hidden in the drivers blind spot, such as other vehicles. This is essential when driving down a busy main road and you wish to over take or switch lanes. With the Blind Spot Information System the sensors detect whether there is a car in the drivers blind spot and it will then alert him/her with a orange warning light in their door mirror to let them know there may be something in their blind spot:

Low Speed Safety System:

Low Speed Safety System has been designed to support drivers in slow moving traffic (speeds under 20mph). The Low Speed Safety system sensors sense the distance of the traffic ahead, and will apply the brakes should the vehicle in front unexpectedly stop.

Eco Boost engine:

The new Ford Focus has also got a lighter more compact Eco Boost engine which works more efficiently to inject fuel into each cylinder. This technology helps to use less fuel and produces lower CO2 emissions, whilst delivering the performance of an larger engine:

So there we have it an impressive little car, the feature that wows me the most though is the Active parking assit which totally amazes me watching that video.
