So, are you, like the Christmas song by Chris area, getting ready for the “drive home for Christmas”?

Well apparently someone has run the math and discovered how “ungreen” Chris Rea was all those years ago!

While I can see the funny side of this, and factually they may be 100% correct but hopefully in 2020 some balance will come into who and where all these bad emissions come from and for it not to be always car focused;

And on that note, whatever mode of transport you take, on behalf of the team at Autostadt.ie have a great holiday break with your families and friends! Many thanks, genuinely, for all your comments and support throughout the year. It means a lot to us. Keep betwixt the ditches folks.

Have a good one :ymhug: :ymparty:

Oh and shameless plug, might see a few of you on the 28th in Belvedere House!

Thanks,
Autostadt Team

Snippet:

“This is not a joke. Apparently Chris wrote the song while driving his wife's Austin Mini 241 miles home to Middlesbrough from Abbey Road studios in London in 1978, thus producing 44kg of CO2. But Chris Rea could have taken the train from King's Cross, which at that time only produced 25kg of CO2 per passenger. Indeed, by the end of the 1980s, when the song was actually released, that train line was electrified, so even greener. By the way, can you believe Chris Rea sat on that song for a whole decade before unleashing it on the world?” Credit Brendan O’Connor
