Remembering the 80's

I had the Merkur for a while.

I did a tarmac rally in the Sierra at Knockhill race track. It was a works outing. Great fun.

That sounds like a great time. I've never done anything like that with any of my own cars, just the Formula Ford at the Jim Russell school.

Knockhill has a host of track experiences. Everything from single-seaters, through rally cars to skid pan and exotica driving experiences. Our family has had a go at most of them.

That's a very happy face in the Ferrari and a very determined and focused face on the kart. Looks like Knockhill is as good as Disneyland any day.

Unfortunately I don't remember the 80's as I wasn't born until 87, but they sound pretty fun.

They were pretty good all things considered. Better than now.
