Everyone started out being very amused by the freaks. Thinking they'd make for a pretty picture, and a couple of interesting stories. But once I park them all up, and wander about talking to men still concerned with cornering g, I realise that there's no point talking about any of the usual dynamic stuff. It's just not relevant. I've been too busy having simple, glorious fun. What Top Gear Speed Week is about. Like I said, most started the day punting wry smiles in the direction of this group of cars. But, by the end, the assembled journalists catch the slightly wild look in my eyes and suddenly no one can think of a reason to laugh.
