Doune

Somebody was heard to say on Sunday that it was a good job it was the longest day of the year as a few cars hurled themselves at the barrier, fortunately without serious damage to the drivers, though the pristine new barrier was looking a bit second hand after Nicola had punched a hole in it with some Force (sorry!!).

Anyway just to say that my Doune blog is now online here and I hope you have a few minutes to read it. A hint if you want your car featured in my three favourite cars of the week the next time - paint it orange!!

All the best.
John

Nice write-up John!
And yes, It was a very long day on Sunday - quite a lot of carnage over the weekend; the barrier repair team were kept very busy.

Brilliant write up.
Flattered that you like my car !
Spookily it had number 68 on it in the pic - same number as Dougie's kart (or not a kart depending on your interpretation) in the pic below.
Proof that Dougie only appears to be sensible nowadays !
