    My night at Knockhill - and Top Gear

    Went up to Knockhill last night with a few of the guys as Fife Constabulary had hired the circuit for the evening as part of a PR excercise between themselves and ye ole cruisers. They had track time (which had to be booked in advance and tbh there werent that many people using it), they also had the skid pan open all night with as many goes as you liked, as well as the go-karting.

    Went up a back of 5, watched some of the track then myself and Reidy headed onto the skid pan to show what pro;s we are are powersliding- - soon realised we were shite and left.

    As a bonus Top Gear were also up there filming, apparently the script was that they had been there all day (Jeremy Clarskon and the 2 side kicks) and the idea was they had to build a new Caterham from scratch in the same length of time it took the Stig to drive up in the new Caterham. Guys seemed alright, and they spent a bit of time talking to people around the circuit.

    Had a really enjoyable night, was also nice to see some Vauxhall;s taking prizes in the Best Kept car competition (Jock Ramsays Manta taking first and a stunning Corsa Turbo taking 3rd).

    Sounds like a good day.

    I wonder when that will be shown on top gear.

    I dont see the point in the world cup. England seem to have won it already. Well, according to a lot of the press.
