Probably a T shortage in the UK due to the Olympics!

A regular 'comic' bit in Autosport magazine that appears to be written by some twonk who's idea of his own comedic talent is 'front row of grid' when in reality it appears to be somewhere behind the likes of HRT :rolleyes:

The "D" thing is supposed to be some sort of joke about Will Buxton's pronunciation.

The reason for this is because Revved Up used to be a critical review of the weeks motorsport television and did a pretty good job of it, then it moved on to being some kind of Sniff Petrol-esque humour piece and, for reasons unknown, seems to exist now to make personal insults against people.

Time for something new on page 95 methinks.
