MGB V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got
a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made
it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest
lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race
would have been so much fun from P2 though...

MGB Roadster in the New Forest
An edited version of a short trip in the New Forest in my 1970 MGB Roadster
(red, chrome bumpers, wire wheels, walnut dash and overdrive). Sister in
car with me (aged 13, hence some odd utterances), and my phone was taking
the video attached to the windscreen by a tacky, cheap, plasticky thing I
bought off Amazon for all of £5.99, hence the rather shaky video.
