Some of these are in need of a more attention - especially the one with the obvious fence pattern on an otherwise reasonable side pan shot!
Tim Hayes has been running that Sud Sprint for a while....quite a few Alfas running with HSCC but mostly 105 series or Alfetta GTV - Tim is in the Invitation class

We used to park up in the station square waiting for customs clearance and return loads and I often wondered why so many cars stopped and asked ladies for directions on one side of the square and an equal amount used to ask men for directions on the other side.

It seems I can still attract the wimmin. I had to have a CT angiogram today but apparently my body still doesn't agree with foriegn objects being inserted into it. When nursey tried and failed miserably to insert a cannula i took a turn for the worse and my BP fell out the bottom of the hospital, 40 over 20 at one point and a lot of flapping around by the nusrses and then about 3 doctors turned up, so I had around 6 or 7 women all fussing around me at one point, trouble is they all ****ed off once I felt better.

It surprises me more than somewhat that many of my local hospital nurses and some consultants/surgeons seem to have great difficulty inserting cannulas, yet the phlebotomists both at my GPs and in the hospital make it seem so easy.

One one procedure that I had about two years ago the cardiologists (3 of them) spent about an hour trying to insert a cannula into my wrist, and after about 30 goes (and the resulting puncture marks) they had to give up and inserted in my groin. They then found out that the cannula, that the nurse on the ward prior to going down to the path. lab, had inserted into the crook of my arm wasn't actually in a blood vessel so they had to stick another one into my groin area.

At least it keeps the NHS busy.

Ditto.

Tim,

I had an angiogram a few weeks ago and they told me to shave myself in case they couldn't fit the catheter or whatever through my arm. Anyway I was just soaping up when the nurse suggested I was shaving the wrong end!

They fitted it through my arm and after 15 mins of trying not to look at the tv screens I was released. Thankfully all clear.

My BP is usually 130/80 but it went up to 145/90. I was told this was normal when stressed.

Well I may have been being a bit harsh, she did get the needle in OK and blood flowed but I suspect my vein may have protested as it stooped suddenly. later on, another nurse tried the other arm with success first time

Mine's normally 120/80ish or around 150/90 without meds but this being so low was quite scary, not only for me. Good to hear you are all OK.

All this talk of blood pressure and puncturing of various bits of anatomy is a little apposite, as due to a degree of senile incompetence I'd got it firmly in my head that last year's medical was on 16th April, so as I'm due to be out racing next weekend, I thought I's better get my licence application in over two weeks ago to give me plenty of time whilst still availaing myself of the twelve month validity of my last medical......at which point I discovered I'd got it wrong and my last one was 6th of April....and I'd missed the cut-off

So next available appointment for a fresh medical was yesterday....which duly went OK, and I bimbled off to get the form into the post at the main sorting office a few miles away, to catch the last collection......and as time was tight I paid the MSA's idiot tax to get express 3-day handling.

So this morning at 11.02 I get an email telling me my application has been received. Then at 13.10 I get another email advising that as I'd paid for express handling my licence had been printed and would be dispatched today......and another email confirming that my licence had been processed and giving "To Whom it May Concern" confirmation that I could compete this weekend if needed without paying any "no-licence" penalty....

Pretty impressive performance from Royal Mail and MSA, huh?

Assuming my actual licence arrives before next weekend.

I’ve said it before, but in my experience the licensing department works well. It’s the area that deals with technical regulations who more often than not attract criticism......

I gave up blood donoring after a particularly bad experience with the ‘insertion’. My forearm was black for a while afterwards....

BTW good to see the odd amateur mistake in F1. As the cars were on the first lap of FP yesterday a role of duck tape fell onto the track from one of them..... A fleet footed marshal rescued it, fortunately, although by then it had caused race control to declare ‘debris on track’!

Marshals retrieving something that's fallen off a car reminds me of an incident I saw at a Touring Car race at Shah Alam Circuit in Malaysia a few years ago. A BMW M3 came down to the last corner & onto the pits straight, clearly over-revving the engine on the down-changes. As he accelerated out of the corner, the engine sounded very rough, there was a clatter from the car and as he rolled off onto the side of the circuit a con-rod fell out from under the car. A quick thinking marshal sprinted over and picked it up before another vehicle arrived. He obviously didn't realise how hot engine components can get because as soon as he picked it up he looked like he was auditioning for the South East Asian Con Rod Juggling Championships!

This was at Mallory for shakedown testing last Tuesday.

There were some discussions about its visual appeal.
