This week in 30 Laps with Dick? Let’s have a look at  "the" E Type Jaguar Ugandan President Idi Amin famously swapped for an F Type Rhinoceros. Also, in Jeep News, the Cherokee Nation want their name back. Show some respect Mr Jeep. And while we’re talking off roaders, let’s meet the Grenadier, the New Age Defender some might say. This swanky new utility vehicle is under development and should be on sale by early 2022. The Grenadier was designed by Ineos Automotive Ltd, a company founded by Jim Ratcliffe, billionaire chairman of the multinational chemicals company Ineos. It really is “a tow, row row row row” to quote the traditional 17th century marching song of the British, Australian and Canadian military units whose badge of identification features a grenade. Boom!
