Crash, bang, whallop!

You may have noticed I've not posted about work much this weekend. Well, there's a good reason for that - I have a visitor, my little bro. It's not often he gets time to come see me and it's really cool to have him down here. We have a such a giggle together! We didn't even do that much yesterday, but a whole lot of not very much can be good for the soul :)

Today we are doing something though. Something we've not done in years. When I say years, I mean more than 10! We're off to watch banger racing!! I used to love going when I was a kid. We used to go to Arlington, near Eastbourne (I grew up in East Sussex), just me, my bros and my dad. Certainly not my mum's cup of tea and I don't think she really appreciated all the bits of metal I'd bring home from cars that crashed right in front of me! Anyway, I LOVED it and in a moment of internet surfing, found that there are a few tracks right on my doorstep. So, today we're off to watch some silly people smash up some gaudy old cars. Bliss!

This is not one of my photos (I grabbed it from here). Not sure if I'll take my camera today or just enjoy the action. :)


  1. I see your in chelt, was the banger racing in gloucester? near quedgeley? I'm in hardwicke and could here ALOT of noise all this weekend! I was wondering if the racing was on. I went with my man and little one last year (I think!) It is a v.good day out! I always fancied being a bit of a car racer lol!!
