  1. To be honest I turn the volume down when Sam is commentating, and provide my own commentary. At least I can understand it then.
  2. Thought the only decent bit of racing was the final with Janowski and Lebedevs passing each other a couple of times. Shame that Old Norbert didn't manage to pick up a point. Nowt else to report really. Lebedevs a class above today, good to see Janowski a bit livelier as well.

    Reg Duval

    I remember Reg well, he was one of my favourite riders at the time, always used to think he had a classy name. A good solid smooth middle of the order man. A great innings ro get to 97 Reg. And a decent bloke to talk with. RIP REg and thanks for the years of entertainment !

    Leicester v Oxford 27th May

    For me the highlight was the cameraman concentrating on the serious gardening at the starts, whilst Chris just sits back and watches the nonsense, then he just nonchalantly tolls forward when the Marshall eventually calls them to the line, and off he goes and saved some wear and tear on his boots.

    Eric Hockaday R.I.P.

    Only just caught up with this sad news, I know that my memory is rubbish these days, but I remember having a natter with him in the pits at Brandon when he was a stalwart with Oxford. A helpful bloke. RIP Eric

    John "Tiger" Louis R.I.P.

    Shocked and saddened at the news, you'll always be remembered John, my thoughts are with Chris and all the family. You were a bit special on a bike. RIP John Louis

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    Here we go again It's good to have Motogp back again with qualifying in Qatar today. Yesterdays practice was a bit mixed with rain causing an unexpected start to the season, the dry sessions provided the first chance to see if there will be much change in the hierarchy. They all seemed to do well but until the actual races it will be difficult to really have an objective view on it. Acosta went very well and looks set to continue his rise to the top, of last years risers and surprises Diggia went well in the top 6 for most of the sessions. Will 93 be at it again and riding into people again this year, who knows, I hope not. Motogp qualifying this morning then the sprint race this afternoon. As you can tell I'm looking forward to it !!

    Oldest Surviving World Finalists

    It's a bit frightening eh, I'd slot in at number 25, I haven't seen Gemini around the forum for a while but I think she slots in at number 16 in these days of equality.

    Rick France

    Very very sad and shocking news to wake up to this morning. A very underrated talent and always portrayed as Ron's sidekick you might say, but what a brilliant pairing they made on track. he was a key member of the team in the '60s A pleasure to watch racing and progress constantly, and what a season when he qualified for the World Final. a decent guy all round, he gave me some good advice when I had similar shoulder problems in 67, thanks Rick. RIP Rick my thoughts are with Rick's family and friends, a truly sad day for the Bees.

    Brandon Update

    Thanks Dave for posting that video, Jeff deserves some serious award for his dedication along with many others in the fight for Brandon. It’s heartwarming to see the little men win the battle with a Goliath.. On a personal note , my back straight spot sounds like it’s still. In decent nick.

    Brandon Update

    Well that's a brilliant surprise and hopefully a step in the right direction towards a better future.for the village. That stadium was my home for twelve years from the age of eleven, so it always had a special place in my life. I mustn't get too euphoric as we've got to find a real way forward for everybody on our side of the fence. Mega thanks and congratulations to all those that have worked so hard to achieve this result. The City and Rugby both need a good stadium site, with luck it can still be Brandon.

    It was an eventful day Ove. I won't say any more at the moment, in case you don't know the result !!

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    It's the final day of the season for Motogp. The sprint race was the usual scrappy affair before it settled down and Martin dramatically cut Bagnia's lead to seven points, by winning the sprint with Bangnia fifth holding off Diggi. Strange practice sessions yesterday with Martin harassing Bagnia. Hope it will be a fair race tomorrow without penalties.
