    .....But the odd thing is that people who are easily offended by other people enjoying themselves seem to buy houses near to venues where people tend to enjoy themselves.....

    Yep my memory isn't what it once was but I do remember that the Elvis gig was at Essex County Showground! You must have had some better Tequila than us LOL.
    To get back to memories when I'm driving round Bruntingthorpe, what Steve 5-6-7 was alluding to was the bombing raid which ended when we hit a WWII bunker and Ron's head went through the windscreen. It's a long way from the track but my eye always gets drawn to it.

    The problem as always in these situations is the local residents who bought houses next to an airfield/test track and then complained about noise! It's the same at Mallory Park which has been a motorsport venue since the war is under threat from people who have bought houses near a race track and then complain. These people should be hounded from their houses and be housed on the most desolate part of the country, they would be happy then!!!!!!!

    Oh Rog I remember driving said Porsche an hour before the trip into that ploughed field- memories eh?
    Yes residents these days are going to close down everything thats louder that the local duck pond - Mallory is certainly on its way - may be the ****s that complain should be relocatred next to Donnington airport !

    I spent alot of time mapping my supercharged m3 at bruntingthorpe and was moaned at by the owners loads of times due to noise and it was no where as loud as my rod is
    I said to the owner you have planes take off from here and they are loads noisier
    he explained they have no noise restrictions for aircraft but do for cars due to those pesky locals!
