Not often is there a surfeit of pity for a bunch of blokes armed with a load of borrowed fast cars and a free race track, but, right now, I actually feel sorry for my colleagues. Left with the metaphorical sweepings, I have never been more pleased. And while proper motoring journalists with constipated expressions discuss slip angles, I fire up the first of what has been disparagingly described as the ‘freaks’ and roll out, intending mischief. Say hello to the circus.
