Of course dear old Dickie is a Motorsport Mag journo isn't he? He's a good journo and actually a good racer but a complete cockwomble if anyone differs with his opinion.

A Goodwood ban is a year off isn't it?

JO is probably going back to his roots and accepted an offer to join Chas and Dave.

He'd be about as good at being Chas as he is at pretending to be posh

So we have booked accommodation again, for one more year at least, but retirement means that the opportunity to do more overseas historic meetings is now a reality. So Dijon, Ricard, Imola, Portimao may get a visit in the coming years, camera in hand !
...don't forget Pau. Eurostar to Gare du Nord, Metro to Montparnasse, TGV to Pau. Step off the train and you're opposite the pits.

Yes he is. His article this month is very clearly aimed at JO.

JO has threatened not even to take his racing licence out for 2019. Big sulk.

The problem is with some if not most of the professional drivers is their idea of racing conflicts with the basis of historic racing where most owners would prefer it if their car finished the races in the same state as they started it.
They are paid in most cases to drag the cars they are given to the highest position they can.

Thatís undermines the basis of historic race driving but makes some decent bits for You Tube when they mess up a car.
And race organisers can stick in on web sites.

JO is not used to that type of racing nor some of the BSCC old men who enter Historicís for one last go at being superstars in what is very much lower league sport.

Itís reaching the time when a form of control such as applied in US and Patrick Peter events should be introduced.

Yes, following some high cost incidents, Patrick insists during each briefing on the "good fellow" ad fair play driving attitude. Till now it works, together with a kind of fine given if you're responsible for a big crash.
If you're talking about Jackie Oliver, are you sure he has not been driving in U2TC for a long while? During a race at Dijon, he took over me gaining the third place but neither he "ding, dong" me nor he sent me out of track!

I confess, I've shared the track with him a few times and I've not heard any complaints about his driving.

JO drove Les' Cortina car a few times early noughties, before he got involved with Laranca/BMW, possibly his first foray in historics? As a mere 'spanner' at the time I can't say I found him a particularly pleasant/polite chap, although he didn't bash the car up.

things got a whole lot more competitive with Laranca . . . . and HAve shared a track also, I just keep out of the way!

next he's an also ran, like me, in mid field, in an ordinary Cortina, when he has a coming together with Maydon in Jasons mini. . . . . If that had been Jason and I in our own cars, I guarantee it would not have ever happened.

Don't forget Maydon runs as a "pro" too. That was racing incident, no more, no less. But then again that may be John's point.

Agreed JO isn't the most pleasant of folks but then again not all of us are angels are we?

I don't think it was a racing incident.

I have never been called an angel.

Agree to disagree, I don't think it was on purpose.

And no, I wouldn't call you an angel.

And, "Meadon" not "Maydon".
