    The Road Rat (Magazine)

    Does anyone get The Road Rat?

    It's a great quarterly magazine,maybe a bit high brow for me but every now and again and article captures my imagination.

    This issue has a piece about a British proposal for a LeMans type race.
    The Parsley Hay Peak District Road Race.
    It would have been great if it had got the go ahead.

    Looks a bit narrow for sportscar racing - wasn't the April edition was it?

    Back in the early 70's when I was into road rallying as a student in Sheffield I seem to recall a particularly well-used "white" road (un-surfaced) called Dirtlow Rake which must have been in this area somewhere . Great rallying territory !

    A few years ago there was a plan to create a road race here based in Jedburgh, but it has never got off the ground.

    Fascinating - it's amazing the risks they were prepared to take in those days. It feels as if we dodged a LeMans/Dundrod - style carnage.

    Oddly enough I thought the opposite.
    We missed out on a chance to build a state of the art facility learning from those lessons and leading the world......................
