    A classic album really, although hardly mainstream. In all honesty I've always believed it was inspired by LSD

    It's not much, and it's certainly not my guarantee, nor even my words or views. Just what i was told from a reliable source.

    That's what i heard... surprised me as i believe it's a popular race in the region of 400 starters...

    I'm certainly hoping that some races will be able to go ahead long before that. But i wasn't surprised that Borrowdale fell by the wayside, considering how popular it is.

    I think a key factor in races going ahead will have a lot to do with whether the RO has a "can do" attitude or not!

    There's a trip down memory lane I had completely forgotten about.

    On tonight's local news a slimy looking car dealer was getting excited about his showroom now being open and talking about the changes that customers would notice. He also said that "test drives would be discouraged".

    I wouldn't have thought he was going to sell many cars as only a drongo would buy one without a test drive!

    Mmmh. I have driven nothing but Mercedes C-Class for over 25 years. I didn't test drive any of them. I didn't test drive my Citroen SM either (82,000 miles in 2 1/2 years), or my Cosworth Scorpio,...

    Is it too late to start?

    I'm repeatedly amazed at the erudition of the contributors to this forum. I had no idea that a lark has more than one tongue.

    You've done well to be so repeatedly amazed after such a short time on the forum.

    Welcome - love the first post by the way
