Is that your James Dean look? (I've read about him in history books ). Mind you, look what happened to him last time he climbed into a Porsche.

Nice photos by the way!

Circa 1955!

From the look of some of your snaps, may I have caught you in the background?

Thank you for the compliment, coming from you I am genuinely flattered.

No it wasn't me - I was a little further back from the there, in the direction of the start/finish.

I post this sequence as part of a problem solving exercise, not to mock.

Some people just seem to like gravel traps Bob.


Got away with the short cut the first time. Not so luck the second.


Did he have an option for a third attempt do you know?

No he managed it in two, failed in his first go, so turned round and tried again and, as the pictures show, got well and truly stuck.

Now I appreciate that in principal, one should re-join where one left the track, but the driver did not even attempt that. I guess he just likes gravel beds.

At one point I thought he was going to turn right if he’d got through the gravel on his second attempt and go back the way he’d come. That would have spiced things up.
