Bible 2.0

With thanks to Blue Eyes, re-posted here in the hope he won't mind because I know someone who should see it ;-)

A petition worth signing

Someone has put up a petition calling for a British version of the Nurburgring.  I've signed it, and I think you all should too.

As the petition says,
The Nurburgring in Germany has been a roaring success for the region. Tourists come from far and wide to do a lap or two of the famous public racetrack. We propose that a similar road be opened in a deprived area in need of rejuvenation. This would be a good idea because it would be a centre for the public to explore speed in a safe environment, instead of on public roads causing harm to themselves and others. It would also bring automotive tourism to the area, and potentially would make money for the department through a toll system.
Anyone who has been to the Ring can tell you that it is a huge money-spinner for the locality and provides huge support for the local economy.  Even the tree-hugging watermelons should like it, as it would mean there would be excuse for high-speed antics on public roads.

Do go and sign.

I admit it

OK, OK, you were all right. Cameron is not the messiah. He's just an ordinary politician.



But he's still better than Brown was, would have been, and (indeed) ever could have been.

But yes, I'm disappointed. Anyone want to help form a new party? Like UKIP, only sane. And popular.

Building the Caterham

In case you're wondering why there's not been much on here about my Caterham build, there are two reasons.

First, I've been quite busy with the actual process of building it!

Second, and probably more important, I've taken the opportunity to set up a specific Caterham blog at:


which will deal with the day-by-day construction of the car, and my experiences driving and racing it.  That is now up-to-date (save for some image upload snags which should be resolved later today) and will be the repository for anything Caterham-related.

Do take a peek, and let me know in its comments box what you think.

My kit has arrived!

The Caterham Academy kit has arrived, temporarily displacing pretty well everything from the garage. Here it is being delivered, in time lapse:



I've made some progress so far, which I'll post up or link to shortly.
