Mitch Evans celebrates winning the GP2 race at Silverstone 2014

GP2 at Silverstone 2014

The British Grand Prix saw the fifth round of the 2014 GP2 series, with the usual configuration of a feature race and a sprint race. There were changeable conditions over the weekend, and one of the things that was probably less visible to those watching on TV was how windy the track was at times.…

Xander on a tractor

Tractor Jokes

My son Xander’s favourite word at the moment seems to be “Tractor”, so in his honour, this week’s puns and one-liners come with the theme of tractor jokes. As normal, don’t expect originality, or hilarity….   I haven’t seen that new film “The Tractor” yet, but I’ve seen the trailer. A farmer friend of mine…

Sennan Fielding in BRDC F4 at Silverstone

BRDC F4 at Silverstone

One of the great things about motor racing is that there are so many fantastic series for most of us still to discover. I went along to Silverstone last weekend to experience the BRDC F4 championship for the first time, complete with its series of support races. Like many of the series outside the top…

Kevin Magnussen

A gallery of Kevin Magnussen photos

Kevin Magnussen entered Formula One in 2014 with the McLaren team, after a rapid rise through the levels of motor sport.  He is the son of former Formula One driver Jan Magnussen, who is himself still racing in various Formulae. A successful series of Formula Ford in 2008 saw Kevin crowned as Formula Ford Denmark…

Rain Jokes

After a rather glorious July, August seems to have arrived with a reminder of what summer showers in the UK can be like, and so, as my journey home yesterday was punctuated with heavy rain, it seemed that Rain Jokes was a good a topic for this week’s puns and one liners as ever.  Rather…

Arriving at the 2014 German Grand Prix

The 2014 German Grand Prix

I posted some photos on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the 2014 German Grand Prix, and some of the horrific crash that Felipe Massa had on the first lap – and thankfully walked away from – but did not get round yet to putting together a post with more photos of the event.  So, here…

The 2014 Heather Scarecrow Festival

Scarecrow Jokes

I posted this week about the rather excellent Heather Scarecrow Festival, so it seems that a good topic for puns and one-liners this week might be scarecrow jokes. As normal, they come with no guarantee of funniness or originality…  although appropriately enough, these are more corny than normal.       A scarecrow friend of…

2014 Heather Scarecrow Festival

The 2014 Heather Scarecrow Festival

The village of Heather is a pleasant place in North West Leicestershire, and dates back to the Doomsday Book on 1086, when it was recorded as Hadre, or The Heathland. These days, you might know it for its pubs and live music – very good considering a population of just under 1000 – or at…

A B52 at the Farnborough Air Show

Flying Jokes

I was out this week with a couple of friends, and they suggested that a page of one-liners about holidays may be topical. However, as we have had holiday jokes already, I thought flying jokes would be a relatively close topic. As ever, they come with no guarantee of funniness or originality…     A…

The BRDC Archives

I was lucky enough to spend last weekend as a guest of the BRDC – the British Racing Drivers’ Club – for the Silverstone Classic event across three days, featuring historic cars of various vintages.  The BRDC were excellent hosts, and spending time in their clubhouse, with superb views of the track, as well as…
