I concur :wink: them american programs annoy me more where you see someone do something then 3 people tell you what that person did :roll: yeah I just f***.ing watched it :x

Bit like this,
A naked man was frying sausages in the forest,

"Yeah he was like, frying sausages, an he was like naked an stuff"

Their is no way he built it and ran it at cadwell for the first time straight out of the box it must have had a lot of testing and set up time it would have been a better program if more of the built had been shown

They sneakily changed to I.r.s. And said nothing about that either! I like the guy, he’s down to earth, but the program makers probably thought joe bloggs wouldn’t be interested in the techie stuff

Did anyone see tonight's program, where he reproduced the Steve McQueen motorcycle jump in the Great Escape :?:

Apart from the obvious achievement of getting the job done, all of the background information surrounding both the original escape, and the film version, was quite interesting 8)
