I don't think we were trying to upset you Alan, just a bit of friendly joshing from us in the frozen north to you sof.... err, from the south.

Also, I have enough problems with that Lanccrusher from the other side of t'hill.

And we do appreciate the problems the F1 guys give to the planners of UK club racing.

Subject change.... There was a josh several pages back after someone posted a pic showing a BEV being charged up by portable generator, and the possibility of there being a ‘business opportunity’. Well, too late, as AA have partnered up with Polar / Chargemaster to offer customers a specific recovery service to a charging point should they run out of juice.....

Nice to be appreciated, even by you Bob! But after what must be about 30 years of 'friendship' I know what to expect....

Actually John, I like you a lot better now you live in France, little danger of bumping in to you at Silverstone.

Kindest possible regards,

Bob

We used to have the same problem with getting grids at Lydden with a couple of national series I was involved with which is a shame as I always thought it was a lovely track to race at.

Having just caught up with the race,surely Lorenzo is heading for the door after blatant disregard of team orders. Being a complete petrolhead I follow 2 wheel action as well, MotoGp and WSBK are fantastic to watch.

This isn't the time or place to go into detail but suffice it to say that planning a race calendar is much more difficult than you would imagine. F1, BTCC, BSB, Blancpain etc etc etc all have an influence on what is available to us further down the food chain.
Fair comment.......though after a long drive I think the rewards of Oulton are somewhat greater than those of Brands Indy......GP is worth it, I'll admit, even with the dubious delights of the Thurrock crossing

I doubt if he will be given the boot. I agree that he should have at least let him through to give him a go but in reality he was having a job to hang on to Lorenzo, in any case when they both speeded up they both fell off so they were on the ragged edge anyway !
Typical Marquez had to push it beyond the limit when he didn't need to and almost crashed, but as it was even if he had not finished he would still have won the championship because Dovi didn't finish anyway.
Whatever it was an interesting climax to a championship that went to the last round
