Last time I went to Brooklands was about 2004, I won the autotest at the Midget & Sprite club 50th anniversary for Spidgets. I then retired from competition undefeated.


Still amuses me how pissed off the second place bloke looked. He'd taken the spare etc out the car to make it lighter, it was tuned & tweaked & he appeared to take things seriously. I had a standard 1500 with a passenger & my Jack Russel sat on the shelf behind the seats. Oh & silly hats.

Like any true Englishman I'm never unintentionally rude. If you're offended by this post, good as that is what was intended.

After days of faffing about with Jag and a voltmeter that says it has bugger all electrickery left in it ( though it always starts easily enough) I was pleased to read 12.20 volts on a well rested battery that had done some recent work. So I am going to assume (oh dear...) that I do have an electrical system and a set of clocks that lie like an MP.

Reb pointed out to me on Facebook, that I appear to have inadvertently made the Rover 416GTi Bomb Disposal Edition.

Also, apparently there was some sort of James May programme on recently involving a Renault 4, and my parents have watched it, my dad because cars, and my mum because intrigue about R4s. My mum has craftily used it to plant the seeds of me buying one...
