Way back, when we would pop up to Silverstone on a Friday afternoon for a bit of testing. Lunch before hand in the old BRDC Club house open to one and all. I remember sitting next to Wattie and having a good old natter. Happy days

Giraffe138 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
There was a right old mix in there on Sunday with Martin Colvill & John Rulon-Miller in our party, Sir Malcolm Guthrie, Tim Parnell & John Surtees scullling about with historic racers Joe Twyman and Ollie Bryant amongst the younger faces.

...oh sorry, the real Midgetman name is "Tyler" (can just hear JR saying "if you used your real name not a silly nickname that would have been obvious")

The TFN lot will tell you that this is Peasants Gossip column.

JT can change his name to WT.

Dreaming!
Yup! A return to categories of membership, as to messers Button Hamilton, et al could the club afford the cost of the space required for the badge?

Mansell always had one on his car - I cant believe they cannot find room on their car for one (unless Bernie has banned them as part of his crusade!). Would be a fitting way of thanking the club for its support in the early days

In reference to the the 'How do you spot a race driver ' comment, I never raise the subject that I drive race cars for a hobby anymore because as soon as you do the first question they throw at you is "How much do you get for winning a race". When I reply nothing and it costs me hundreds of pounds just to enter they look back in stark disbelieve like I am some sort of madman. Gave up raising it in conversation years ago and if someone else does I try to change the subject and play it down.

Better not tell them you once raced against Jeremy Clarkson then. They might think you're the Stig!

Ha ha that'll be the day! Actually I did suspect the guy that was driving the camera car may have been the new stig because he certainly could drive. Now what was his name, ah yes Nicky Faulkner I think it was.
