  1. I'm sure @chaseracer and the team would have that running again in a few weeks
  2. If you didn't get to watch live today, click the link above and go and watch the races back - they were SUPERB.
  3. Round two at Pembrey is taking place this weekend - livestream link:
  4. I have found out this evening that one of my friends has got engaged and another one has got cancer. I found out purely by chance through just happening to see Facebook statuses, as always - why can't my friends be arsed to tell me when things are going on in their lives? I don't have time to sit endlessly reading through Facebook, I only find things out by pure chance any more. I'm thinking of just ending interaction with everyone, cos clearly no fucker ever wants to talk to me.
  5. Play by their rules, there's enough big tent pegs around... (NB: before you kick me off the forum, the above is not intended to be taken seriously.)
  6. Called at the local pharmacy earlier this evening to get some throat sweets and my neighbour's daughter was just finishing her shift in there, having recently started working there at weekends while doing her A-levels. As I was leaving her dad arrived to pick her up, and apparently he takes her there and back for every shift...my grump is, the place is less than ten minutes' walk from our houses! I thought getting part time work was meant to teach you a bit of independence.
  7. Not much I can contribute but will try when it's not dark and pissing down - just wanted to say, there are some cracking pics in this thread.
  8. My uncle (the same one who ended up with the Proton Persona Compact) used to have a Fuego, the main thing I remember is when he was packing it to go on holiday somewhere, shut the tailgate and the glass clamshell smashed everywhere - he went MENTAL. My grandma also had a Peugeot 1007, in silver - my dad inherited it when she passed away and he drove it for a short while, until the auto gearbox packed up.
  9. My grandma had a Persona Compact - in purple! - which was later passed to my uncle. My other uncle meanwhile had a Tempra station wagon when my two cousins were little, and since he sold his I have never ever seen another one in the flesh/metal. @wuvvum - that Commer van is amazing, does it still exist anywhere? ❤️
  10. Broken rear coil spring on the Focus. 😠
  11. Hyundai Bayon. Had one as a hire car in Holland last weekend, had never heard of it before.
  12. In quite a few cases they have no upbringing, their parents just sit staring at the TV all day taking no notice of them, and at night get busy creating more kids for more benefit money. [/Daily Mail]
  13. It's a shame the Bennyhillifier site doesn't seem to work anymore. (EDIT) - https://bennyhillthis.com/?v=QY3WyS4dMHQ
  14. Move next door to @jakebullet - he gets rid of his chav neighbours and you get a lovely air-conditioned house, so everyone wins!
  15. Not a grump, but this news has upset me a lot. https://www.expressandstar.com/sport/speedway/2023/04/17/wolves-future-in-serious-doubt-as-monmore-green-tenancy-set-to-end/ I grew up watching the sport there and spent pretty much every summer Monday for many years there, even missed my Uni graduation as I was working at a meeting there. It not only helped to start my career, it is the oldest operating venue for Speedway in the world.
  16. Not all of them are like tha... ...you know what, fuck it, yes they are.
  17. Agreed, but then I used to be a banger racing commentator so I would say that. I won't get involved in arguments about the sport any further than that, because I'll be here for about ten years if I do. To be quite honest, I'm not a huge fan of banger racing even though I've commentated on it for years.
  18. Driving home today along the A5, suddenly *BANG* and I have a nice big stone chip right in the middle of my fucking windscreen. A few weeks ago I had a quick look over a car at a dealership. Since then my Focus has had a wing mirror smashed while parked, a puncture, a blown headlamp bulb, and now this - and I am also fairly sure I got done by a scamera van last weekend. I've not even mentioned selling it but somehow it knows I looked at another car and is doing all this to fucking spite me. (edit) Oh, and after work today I returned to said Focus to find bird shit all over it as well!
  19. Good for you - I hope he gets the sack. What a cunt!
  20. That was John Woolfe, who had previously been very famous as a team owner and in the UK drag racing scene. As for the thing on the Eifelland, that is a periscope used as a rear view mirror!
  21. Hop over the fence and find out what those aircon units are really there for.
  22. With all the shit you seem to put up with, my advice to you would be to move abroad and get a new identity.
  23. I've seen that last one (the Eifelland-March) in person at Race Retro. It's even more horrific when you see it close up!
