A secret revealed...

Just thought I'd share this with you...

The clues were there, the music whilst moving along (easy listening) and the grim determination....

Then THE STIG raised his visor to reveal that he really is Ian!!!!!

Superb pictures.........

Look at the size of that wake - bloody impressive ! Roll on this weekend.

The Jackeens look like they put on a good show, I'm envious - wish I'd been there.

That'll be your home in Iceland of course Bogib, although it's worth pointing out that you flew in from Bulgaria en route just to make the Solent cruise. That's not to decry the habits of others, however, who'd prefer to stay at home and take pictures of each other's arses.
