He Thought of Cars, and Where, Where to Drive Them

Just before leaving the house today for a very pleasant walk to UEA (a walk that was indulgently complemented by a Thorntons toffee flavoured ice cream, hark at me) I heard the sad news that Murray Walker is resigning from the Formula 1 coverage because of his failing hearing, a problem brought on by the cumulative effect of thousands of motors buzzing in his ears. I was inspired by this to scribble an envelope's worth of notes about Walker, J.G. Ballard, Evelyn Waugh and Max Mosley, but I haven't had time to turn it into a real article yet. That'll be the PhD calling, won't it?

Anyway, file this one under promises.
