The Fat Clerk should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Also not to collect a sack load of penalties. Some of the final results sheets look like a lottery of penalties has been randomly distributed. Either that or a lot of people are "very naughty boys".

[/QUOTE]

Drivers are either unaware of forget that all of Mr Palmers circuits have cameras, no need for human eyes, as a Clerk I get photographic proof of 2 or more wheels off, and then follow the Blue Book, showing the offender black & white flag, 5 second penalty, 10 second penalty, Drive Through and then finally on Sunday afternoon to one car the black flag. When will you learn?

Most of the other penalties were for cars overtaking under the Safety Car, mainly on the lap it was coming in. At the end of the race the Timekeeper gives me a sheet showing all the cars that had overtaken before they should have on the restart, or any when else.

Quote Peter Mallett "on one particular lap I overtook a blue Elan at Coppice and ran down to the chicane where I came up behind a B, when I tried to out brake the B , the Elan shot in front of both of us and having better brakes, brake tested both of us, just as a line of faster cars took advantage! I came through the chicane off cam and lost a bit of time. But crucially it was all clean and no contact whatsoever. This would be the story of my stint, because every time I got into position to overtake, the race leaders or the faster cars would bring out the blue flags so progress was hampered"


I can empathise with this - I kept catching the red Dolly Sprint, only to be "too gentlemanly" leaving space for a quicker car, or, frequently at Coppice and the chicane, having a quicker car blast past and then stand on the brakes way earlier than I wanted to, blocking me and leaving me scrabbling to regain momentum All very clean, though....although I nearly ended in the boot of the Skyline who really chopped me into the chicane

Back to Topic!
I think not the same man - the Luke I knew was never a racer!

To be fair, there were so many black tyre marks all over the apexes that most of the time I couldn't tell if I was inside, on or over the relevant line. More by luck than judgement I seem to have got away with it !

Ah, OK, a different Luke, then. I was writing from (a flawed and senile!!) memory.

Not Gilbert, but a nice photo of Mike's Hairy Canary Escort now owned by Nick Whale accompanies a short piece by Paul Lawrence in the latest Autosport (3 June, page 55). Paul, of course, makes reference to the colour and Mike having been a Norwich football fan.

I had a lovely weekend at Cadwell chatting to Jerry Knight. He was telling me stories on how Mike got merry one evening on his home made trifle. " think it was rigged with a fair bit of alcohol ". Lovely memories. Thanks Jerry.

Just noticed that the Whales have entered Lairy Canary for Thruxton. Guaranteed class win. I feel another calendar coming on.

P.S. Bloody painful and slow, keyboading with a freshly broken collarbone. Not recommended at all.
