From what I've read about Dr. King, he had a pretty good idea what was coming and chose not to be detered in spite of the possible repercussions. Just like he intimated in his speech.

He was the real deal.

Even more amazing is that he learnt to do all of that on the Isle of Skye, where he's from - very little street furniture there!

Though I'm guessing, one might imagine there's little else to do there but learn how to do that shit? Good luck to him the talented little bustard

Thumb Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Goodwood Festival of Speed - The first time I went (of 2 visits) was in 2000, when I was lucky enough to be given a ticket by a friend (Rob, amongst many other things curator of Grand Prix Diary and contributor to other F1 sites), who was unfortunately unable to attend due to his wifes ill health. But despite the sad circumstances that allowed my visit it was really quite brilliant day out. In some small form of thanks I was able to send Rob a model of a Williams FW21 signed by Alex Zanardi, and various other autographs, of which he is a collector.

Amongst many other high points I recall strolling through the open access paddock with my (then) 4 year old son on my shoulders, and as we wandered by Sir Jackie Young Stewart*, right on cue, tiny kiddo shouted 'SCHUMACHER STINKS!!!' just like I'd coached him to

JYS looked momentarily shocked, and then wandered off chuckling to himself. When my boy was later snoozing on a blanket by the entrance to the drivers private marquee, JYS wandered past with Emerson Fittipaldi & John Surtees. Having spotted him, JYS related the tale to the other two, and together the three of them were kind enough to kneel down behind this little sleeping soul for a wonderful (but now lost) photo - that's 6 Grand Prix titles (47 GP wins), 2 Indy 500 wins**, 7 motorcycle world crowns (38 GP wins), and my little snoring boy, lovely. Goodwood's like that


* Who lives a couple of miles from here, as does current F1 driver Mark Webber.
** And one near rookie win by JYS, but for 8 laps & a broken scavenge pump


Pictured - Joe and his favourite car of the day, the Dastardly & Muttley Double Zero Personally I preferred the Tyrell P34, Lotus 72 & 79, Gulf Porche 917, or Laudas 312T2b, or the Williams FW07 of Jones, or Juan Pablo Montoyas Indy winning G-Force, or Marc Surers F1 championship winning Polifac March BMW 792, or the 2000 Williams BMW FW22 driven by Button, or, or, or

VERY nice. Never had anything like an off roader myself, unless you count a (very) non-running KLR600* from Asstrail. Never got the bloody thing to start, not even a single parp. Pjcr12 and I pulled it to bits in an hour and parted it out on eBay in the end. Though it had been replaced by the time I got it** he'd been riding it with a snapped rear monoshock spring for ages without really noticing Down here in the South UK there's absolutely nowhere you can get to ride off road, not even green lanes - it's all very bike hating 'gentleman' farmers*** or snob filled urban density

I suppose the closest one can get to 'free riding' over here is this?...****


* Doesn't really count as an actual off-roader tho does it.
** Post mortem so to speak
*** The sad result of centuries of inbreeding & undeserved privilege!?!
**** Going by his picture, the sad result of centuries of inbreeding & deserved under-privilege?!?
