1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Interesting to read that Liberty Media thinks having the races behind the Sky paywall is a mistake and bad for the brand


It is nice to see someone talking sense for a change, it can only alienate the supporters if it is totally behind a paywall as it is now, actually kills in the long term as generations grow into adults not knowing what the sport is all about. Ah but yes that honours degree course in 'common sense' does not take place these days.

Indeed - look what happened to the interest in test cricket once it took the Sky bent cent. The England cricketers used to be household names. I couldnt name any of the current squad

Yes, even on holiday I used to listen to Jonners and Henry realing off the names of the players which somehow they all stuck in my head. I am in the same boat that I hardly know the name of players now that even TMS is on Talk Sport. I was sad to learn however that the comment "The batsmen is Holding...... the bowlers Willey" and the 20 minutes of hysteric giggling and stunted laughter that followed in an effort to maintain decoram and professionalism is supposed to not have even happened yet I am sure I remember listening to either that taking place or a recording of it or maybe just my dad telling me about it when I was a youngster.

I thought it might amuse you all to see a photo of me jammed into the Lotus F1 simulator at the Jim Clark Museum in Duns. Either I've literally driven the wheels off the car or it's the result of my three crashes in two laps of Silverstone.

Thanks Topper, that's about the only thing I've ever won, I will cheerfully admit that it was more by luck than judgement. Many thanks to Analoguesat for setting it up.

Well done JimmyH - and all our top 3 finishers. :D
Looks like I had a pretty average season with team 1 in 13th & team 2 in 9th :D

Thank you to everybody for playing along this season - there have been some deathly dull races (Abu Dhabi?) and some really good ones.. We now revert this thread to any interesting off season chat until the new game starts which will be the end of January if things follow the normal pattern.
