Most most satisfactory, excellent in fact, only I rather you hadn't mentioned the bit about sitting there supping a beer at the same time. cry:

What I found particulary satisfying to see was not so much complete and utter disdain for safety like you get in Greece and France, but a sensible use of common sense like what WE used to be able to do before the hard hat HV jacket clad H&S arse holes took this rancid shit hole of a  cuntry over. cussing:

You are now officially my best friend for the 2nd day running! :thumbsup:
You have won a coconut. cloud9:
I shall bring it with me next year (hopefully)

Very little H&S in evidence....  cloud9:

Most satisfactory and pleasing. :thumbsup:
Basics, yes, but everything doesn't have to be wrapped up on cotton wool.

Indeed...

When somebody dies here the Cypriot reaction is always "this is life"....  lol:

I suspect that same attitude is linked to their views on H & S....

So how many were killled or injured last night watching that then? whistle:

Probably more casualties in the local bars every Friday/Saturday night ey? ::)

Exactly zero as you suspected....  :thumbsup:

I was watching a rallying dvd highlights from the 80's last night, which included the catastrophic and tragic loss of life of 4 spectators in Portugal back in 1988...iirc.
The do gooders were initially blaming the sheer power of the then group B cars, but in all honesty, the suicidal tendencies of the speccies over there really had to be seen to be believed! eeek:
Drivers blasting around a corner at over 100mph to be faced with a wall of humans swiftly parting on both sides to leave a narrow gap for the cars to race through.
Not nice to watch, and extremely difficult to understand the mentality of these absolute idiots.
Litt;e wonder that all of the top teams withdrew from that particular event as a mark of respect and of course to send out a strong message to the organisers to clean their act up.

Trouble is, some of them (mainly the MSA in GB) have taken it completely over the top now, and whacked obscene charges on top for the speccies as well. cussing:

Well impressed there BM. :thumbsup:

You've done us/me proud with your most excellent coverage.

I particulary liked that hairpin you were on. Reminded me so much of the Isle of Man....without the sun and warmth though, naturally. whistle:
