John Batchelor should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Thanks again B&Qsi!!

You're unbelievable!! Thanks once again for making the weekend so great. I have never seen as many B&Q hats in one place. The crowd down at the exit of the chicane were particularly impressive! I know it's a lot of hard work supporting someone who has thus far only got 5 points, but I promise we will get better!

Our pleasure John. I did however, get told off when I walked into the TBR awning with your hat on! Next stop Silverstone so check yer headlights are working okay

Hardwork? Not at all! Fun? Yes

Too right, the place was full of B&Q hats! Unfortunately, by the time I got round to meeting you, there were none left...

It was a pleasure to meet you in the pitlane walkabout, and again later in the paddock. One of the great personalities we need in this sport.

I was only a semi-member of the B&Qsi with my Egg:Sport cap, but it didn't stop me cheering you on.

Best of luck, hope to get to more races this season.

Kev thought it was you lot hiding behind the tree on the outside of Knickerbrook - could you see us up on the hill?

Excellent day - thanks for the drinks - felt it was a bit like mastermind what with questions coming left,right and centre.

Well done on the tenth place.

Well done John! It was like a sea of B&Q hats down at Knickerbrook exit - there were even 4 marshalls wearing them

We had hats, balloons, and the 'Always give it 10 tenths' banner on display.

You also got a ten-airhorn salute on the warm up lap, much to the dismay of the other spectators

More of the same at Silverstone I think

only if and we may need your help here john B&Q!!

For the ten tenths team to peform exceptionally well in supporting u guys we of course need the guarantee of getting some beer down our throats or wine or vodka well infact all of it - but our silverstone nite race campaign has been dealt a deadly blow in that silverstone circuit are not providing camping facilities nor local farmers for general public!!

however and this is where u may be able to help us or indeed any of the other drivers who joined our barbi on sat (Paul and James)

we dont want free tickets nor vip passes all we need is a pass to get us in the infield so we can camp around where the drivers/ teams are allowed to camp - as was evident at the ETCC meeting couple of weeks ago....

If any drivers or indeed marshals can help us with this we would be most grateful im not sure how many passes we need but we could always pass it round until everyone was inside!!

1.What sort of pass do you need, I'll see if I can help.
2.Knowlesy59 of course I knew it was you!
3.Air horns were terrific, you may have noticed that I always drive with my window partly open (at my age you need all the air you can get!) it does have the added benefit of allowing me to hear them!
4. Yes Les, how could I miss you lot!
5. Woody, I'm trying to arrange some blow up B&Q hammers!

What gets me is that it's pointing forward as if it's in use.

I know these drivers try for a tow round the track to improve times but invisible tow ropes - now that's a first!

I am sure we can get a cap to you - send me an email with your name and address and I'll see what I can do.


Apologies to other members of ten-tenths but I am afraid I strayed over to that other lot. After reading what was said on there about John and the rest of us B&Qsi I let rip (well as much as I would).

I have learnt my lesson and am I pleased that I am back now in the land of the free and B&Qsi.

Hi
Hello kristof14 yes you can have a cap, post your address to Crig Antill (OK Craig?) who will forward it tome and we will sort.

Les, The thing on the front bumper is designed to go over the hook that we are trying to pursuade Jason Plato to fit on the back of his Vauxhall!!!

wow i dont believe that

i dont know, what are some people like, you try to go and raise a bit of profile for a btcp driver on another forum and how do you get treated!!

they were more concerned about who i was and where i was from rather than how well the B&Qis performed and were responded to by john himself!!

i tell u some people in this world are not all there.... you would think that people would only be to happy to share experiances especially on a motorsporting front...but oh no they have to bring out the worst in the human race always *****ing!!(well british race anyway)

well thats my winge over!! (but one good thing though it has put my sister right off from even going near the other side)

i say heres to john B&Qis everywhere and one extra loud airhorn from everyone at silverstone night race

p.s and well done les for sticking it to em!!
