    He's a vegetarian. Last time I could be bothered to look, he was considering becoming vegan.

    Just imagine what would happen if they ever encountered a corner - that happened on a straight road!

    Actually, that was the beginning of a curve. It's an oval. A big boring oval.

    Geometry isn't your strong suit!

    I live on a straight road. I refer to it as the local drag strip as I often hear cars/bikes pinning the throttle as they go by. Six miles, two very slight curves.

    Considering the cars are hitting speeds over 200mph and the Daytona track turns have a 31 degree bank I think that qualifies as a curve.

    Listening to R4 today, there was a Professor of Youth and Alcohol (or similar term) talking about how her daughter used to go out and get legless repeatedly...
    The irony that this professor whose full time paid job is to tell the uninformed how to manage the subject, is unable to translate it into reality in her own life, made me wonder how she was booked in as an ‘expert’ in the field.....perhaps if she had been able to give a positive example I might have taken her seriously, but in this instance....FAIL.

    There's a very good YouTube video with a Scottish bloke who's won at Daytona a couple of times explaining the intricacies of racing there. It's a lot more complicated than it looks. Again YouTube, some of the in car camera footage is very good.

    I believe that being in the car is a far cry from watching the race, especially on the talky box. They're fucking flying and quite often packed in tight like they were in that big crash. One person fucks up and a load of cars take a beating.
