  1. Is it a bit late for Happy New Year? Guess I've grown up, never really have time or the obsession to be here anymore.
  2. @Faya @PJTierney Any idea? It's out of my hands!
  3. Here's a question then, since most of the English members of the forum live down south I might get an answer. I'm driving down to Margate in a couple of weeks. What are the roads like speed camera wise down that bit of the country?
  4. So, how's everyone been? I graduate from uni two weeks ago and spent last weekend at Silverstone for Formula Student which was tiring!
  5. No idea, either 12 or 13. It was in the VRL days.
  6. Last logged in May 7th. I can see his email address so could email him if you want? 😛 Welcome back @buttonfan! I still haven't forgiven you for ramming me off at Eau Rouge all those years ago 😠
  7. When they move their factory to within a 15 minute commute like my current job is 😂
  8. On a slightly lighter note, I've gotten my degree classification today and I'll be graduating with a 1st class Mechanical Engineering degree next month 🙂
  9. Depression and stress go hand in hand. I've never talked about it publically before but I went through a low period recently and came close to starting to self-harm on a few occasions. It's weird the way the mind changes when something isn't right. Fortunately, I'm over that now but I know how much of a different person it made me. Stick with your brother; I don't have any blood siblings but confided in someone who is as close to me as one. He sorted me out and made me realise who I really am and it was exactly what I needed.
  10. So, anyone in a gym? I've started work now and as it's an office job I want to make sure I keep fit. If anyone has ever seen photographs of me, you will also know I'm a bit of a weed! I'm a complete novice at this sort of thing so could do with some tips 😎
  11. Well you're right. Wembley the place is an utter dump and wasn't any better than some of the rougher parts of Sunderland! I enjoyed the experience but cried when they scored the winner and I don't think I'll ever watch this match back again. I guess we'll just have to go and win the league next season! I don't drink alcohol but the prices were ridiculous! £5 for a slice of pizza and nearly £3 for a bottle of water! At the SoL You get two pies, two pints and two packets of crisps for a tenner! The atmosphere was amazing though, it's the loudest football match I've ever been to and I g
  12. Well, I'm heading down to Wembley tomorrow for the play off final. It'll be my first time in London too! Really can't wait and I have my alarm set for 3:45! At least this time I'll be spamming my Instagram stories rather than me looking at people spamming their's!
  13. What a fantastic atmosphere we had tonight! Really enjoyed that and it felt good to finally beat the dirty buggers, especially with 10 men after one of the most hopeless refereeing performances I have ever seen!
  14. You haven't gotten anywhere near full tourist. I went on holiday down south once and we visited Stonehenge. There were loads of Asian tourists and, I kid you not, some of them were taking pictures of the dandelions in the grass around the stones rather than the stones themselves!
  15. That's one of things I noticed about Edwards and Crofty. Edwards is so naturally passionate and you can hear it - Crofty seems to force stuff to try and make it seem exciting. Jake Humphrey isn't going to go back to F1 and I'm not a massive Steve Jones fan (although I prefer him to Lazenby). Will Buxton would be my choice. I do miss Lee McKenzie though - she had a rapport with the drivers unlike any other reporter. Lee was almost like she was talking to an old friend. Sky's interviews always seem stale and dull. A bit like their entire show...
  16. I can't find the TV coverage thread so will post here instead. Is anyone else really starting to dislike David Croft? I've never been a huge fan anyway and always preferred Ben Edwards, but today he's really gotten on my wick. It's fair to say this was one of the most exciting races for a long time, yet he still managed to get sidetracked and laugh throughout the race. He was constantly interrupting or talking over Martin Brundle and is just downright annoying. I'm sure he's a nice guy, I just can't get away with him commentating and Sky should go for Ben Edwards or Jack Nicholls. Or
  17. Thank you for that vital information.
  18. I had an interview earlier this week for a company that makes some of the interior components for Alexander Dennis busses.
  19. Is the Fox newer? That can have a big say on it. Could also be that the Fox is viewed as less racery than a Clio.
  20. Did anybody watch the Williams documentary on BBC2? What a brilliant film that was!
  21. I think so, Matt might be a year older than me. Can't remember... Alex did have an MSC account, but there was another one or two with that as there name as well.
