Much-admired: The Volkswagen T-Roc R

If there was ever the waste of the potential of a thoroughbred car, it is the Volkswagen T-Roc R which I have been driving since just before the 'lockdown' started.

I had picked it up just two days before it was decided that car showrooms would shut and the ability to change press cars would go.

Paddy Comyn, the VW public relations guru and son of my predecessor on this column, the late much-respected Pat, suggested I hold on to the car for a while, which I have done, but I feel this time will be coming to an end as garages begin to reopen.
