When Eddie Jordan met The Stig
Morning everyone, thanks for your messages yesterday. And, 'pSynrg', no doubt a bit of "my driver's better than yours" will follow - an aspect I really enjoy about F1, actually. And as of today there are two more drivers on the grid for you all to discuss this coming season.
'justbubba'...the fishcakes turned out really well (secret ingredients were capers and boiled egg... fantastic) and even better was the White Horse and the London Pride that followed!
DC has a fantastic sense of humour, incredible knowledge and as I've learned over the past few weeks as I've got to know him he can explain the unexplainable about F1 incredibly well.
As for EJ, well, if our day at the Top Gear track is anything to go by he is going to be cracking entertainment. We were doing a piece for Top Gear Grand Prix 09 magazine as 'Stars in the reasonably priced car'. Boy, that Lacetti is erm... different!
The Stig was incredibly good at guiding us around the track, Lee McKenzie looked cracking in her helmet, I was addicted to the Scotch Eggs on offer in the very-unglamorous Top Gear Portakabin and EJ absolutely threw the little blue rocket around the track...not necessarily facing the right direction all the time and not always sticking to the tarmac, but if it had been filmed for the show it would have gone down as legend and most corners would have now been renamed 'Jordan'.
I'd better not give away who was the quickest but I can tell you that after Eddie's lap I'd be surprised if the car didn't need a new handbrake.
Have a good day and a top weekend guys!
