Put it on the front row of the grid, won the next day and set the lap record. Ran out of money after that but the race was broadcast on sky tv and I was in the Bradford newspapers and various Motrocycle Magazines
Interesting. what circuit and club was that with?

Boxed 9 amateur bouts:

Won 7 (KO 4) Lost 2 (KO 1)

Once averaged 85 in a first to 8 legs darts league match.

Once beat highest ranked player in the league by 4 legs to nil!

Any other sport I was terrible!

But I rocked the bomb on STREETFIGHTER ALPHA 3!!!

3 hours 16 minutes is an amazing time, not least for a 43 year old. A club runner at their peak would not be embarrassed by that time.

Unless of course you meant 3 days 16 hours...

Too late now like, with a busted shoulder and dodgy knees.

It's weird when I watch rugby league now, I've played against at least one person in nearly all the Super League teams, and played with Lee Smith, Scott Murrell and Carl Ablett for Leeds schools.
I grew up with the Murrells! Small world, live just around the corner and Scotts in Asda 24/7 buying 40 chicken breasts at a time

Mallory Park with Thundersport GB. Turned up 20 mins before qualifying with a bike that needed lock wiring and scrutineering! I worked for a lad called Michael Pensavalle who ran in British Superbikes a few years back and he provided my tyres for the weekend so credit to him

I never really got to know Scott all that well to be honest, once tried handing him off in a school game and took a forearm for my troubles.

Used to really annoy me how he'd almost punch you rather than hand off, dirty twat

Can't believe how much chicken they eat.... suppose it's because it doesn't sit on you for a couple of days like steak does.

Oh, and egg whites too

Football: Average. Play midfield, bit of a workhorse with decent fitness. Chip in with about 5 or 6 goals a season.

Cyclingont do it competitively, or neither am I part of a club. But I can climb the mountains near where I live better than any of my mates who I go cycling with and in general am a stronger rider.

Karting: I once held the lap record for Kiltorcan Raceway using the stock customer Karts.Again, never did karting properly, just with mates. But even to this day I always win, and have a knack for karting. Pity I didnt have the money or support when I was 13 or 14 for this type of sport. I feel i could of done well out of it. One of the only things I genuinely felt much better than most people at.
