Another gentle puzzle that was well suited to a pub-based solve.  Didn’t know ‘shooting brake’ but the anagram was clear enough and didn’t suggest anything else. Always nice to learn something from a crossword!

    I too found this on the easy side, getting 3 of those 4 interlinked 13-letter answers on first run through, by a curious coincidence they could have all appeared in a puzzle a very long time ago, but I had heard of SHOOTING BRAKE all right.
