Of course it does, although, I always think of his ETCC triumph as counting although obviously it doesn't.

stedevil has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Well, Tony Rickardsson, participating & currently 2nd in Scandinavian CC, is 6 time WC in Speedway. Of course he changed from 2 to 4 wheels, but it's still high end competitive motorsports.

I am afraid you two may have misunderstood what I said.

What I said wasn't in refference to a particular post. What I said I suppose was said as a statement of fact. That indeed I don't expect his MBE to affect the likelyhood of him even getting close to being recognised as indeed as far as 4-wheeled motorsport in the BBC is concerned it always does begin with F1 and end with WRC with nothing between.

What if we all did outside of BBC Television Centre, what the truckers did do about the price of fuel?

Not quite sure how everyone missed Valentino Rossi...

2005: MotoGP world champion
2004: MotoGP world champion
2003: MotoGP world champion
2002: MotoGP world champion
2001: 500 MotoGP world champion

2000: 2nd, 500 MotoGP World Championship
1999: 250 GP world champion 1998: 2nd, 250 MotoGP World Championship
1997: 125 GP world champion 1996: 9th, 125 MotoGP World Championship
1995: 125cc Italian Champion
1994: 125cc Italian Sports Production Champion
1993: 3rd - 125cc Italian Sports Production Championship
1992: Regional Minimoto Champion
1991: 4th - Italian Junior Go-Kart Championship
1990: Regional Go-Kart Championship - 9 wins
1989: First Go-Kart Race

Now, admittedly, it slipped his mind to win the World title in the last 2 seasons, but all the same...

None of which takes away from Andy that he's being recognised for his superb achievements... and for the huge amount he and wife Jo do fund-raising for charity for premature babies...
