the nice thing is if you are a little more rotund it doesn't stop you from competing. In fact it probably helps.

Looks like fun and probably not terribly expensive. Notice they all have a guy of a "certain bulk" in the ballast, er... passenger, seat.

That looks like a blast.

Bayless, we should start an OK trial club.

This is where Colin Chapman started. The first few Lotus cars were trials cars.

Well we have three now. That's looking like a start. But wait. I'm already years behind one my existing 3 projects.

just watched briefly but, I love watching trials too! (Just not Judge Judy - but I digress) Fascinated by both the location and the number of turns in the steering rack - almost like a forklift! Not sure how many turns lock to lock but, lots more than a regular car!

That's where the Mother-in-Law sets! :highly_amused::driving:PJ


I really shouldn't have said that, My mother-in-law was a real sweetheart and a real lady, very refined and when we would go over to their house, she would bake something special just for me! :encouragement:

Maybe require restraint system and helmets?
