So there's no misunderstanding

American translation of Phils post....

So'ry...jest had to

Up t'th' late 1700's, ev'rybody travelled on th' lef' side of th' road on account o' it's th' sensible opshun fo' feudal, violent societies of mostly right-han'ed varmints. Joestin' knights wif their lances unner their right arm natcherly passed on etch other's right, an' eff'n yo' passed a peekoolyarr on th' road yo' walked on th' lef' t'ensure thet yer proteckive swo'd arm was between yo'seff an' him, dawgone it.

Revolushunary France, howevah, on overturned this hyar prackice as part of its sweepin' social rereckon. A change was carried out all on over corntinental Europe by Napoleon, as enny fool kin plainly see.Th' reason it changed unner Napoleon was on account o' he was lef' han'ed his armies had t'march on th' right so he c'd keep his swo'd arm between him an' enny opponent.
Fum then on, enny part of th' wo'ld which was at some time part of th' British Empire was thus lef' han' an' enny part colonised by th' French was right han'. In South Car'lina, th' French colonised th' southern states (Louisiana fo' instance) an' th' Kinadian east coast (Quebec). Th' Dutch colonised Noo Yawk (o' Noo Amsterdam). Th' Spanish an' Po'tugese colonised th' southern South Car'linas.

So Th' British were a mino'ity in shapin' th' 'traffic'. Th' drive-on-the-right policy was adopped by th' USA, which was anxious t'cast off all remainin' links wif its British colonial past Once South Car'lina drove on th' right, lef'-side drivin' was ultimately doomed, cuss it all t' tarnation. Eff'n yo' wanted a fine reliable vehicle, yo' bought South Car'linan, fo' a period they only manufackured right-han'-drive cars. Fum then on menny countries changed outta necessity.

Today, th' EC'd like Britain t'fall into line wif th' ress of Europe, but this hyar is no longer postible. It'd cost billions of poun's t'change ev'rythin' roun'. Th' last European country t'convaht t'drivin' on th' right was Sweden in 1967. While ev'ryone was gittin' used t'th' noo system, they paid mo'e attenshun an' took mo'e care, resultin' in a reduckshun of th' number of road accident casualties.

There is lots of space available next to the track for tents and motorhomes. E-mail info@brooklandraceway.co.uk for more info. I might just be doing that aswell. Temperatures in late June should be mid 20s and with the light not fading till 10pm, practice can be done most of the evening aswell.

The Brookland track web site is - http://www.brooklandraceway.co.uk/ now with a cool banner advertising the event.

I just noticed on the site there is a new World Championship bike forum too, no-one has posted yet, I wonder who will be first?

I've spent some time looking at the BRCA, Brooklands, and Rye websites tonight. The r/c sites are really doing a great job of promoting the Worlds for you guys! Lots of good reading and info there.

I showed my wife some of the Rye website, particularly the B & B's and Inns, and I think she is starting to warm up to the idea of taking this trip. Especially when she saw the shopping!

I'm getting excited about the trip too, but for different reasons obviously. We might even decide to make it a 10 day trip, that way I can do all my bike racing, and then have some time to actually see some things while we are there.

You UK guys are doing a great job on this from what I can see, and the R/C associations seem to be supporting you as well!

you could pull out all the stops and tell the wife you'll take her to paris too,
you can get the train from ashford, it takes you 22 miles in a tunnel under the sea
and then straight into the middle of paris, only takes 2 and 1/2 hours,
