Our Correspondent in Guernsey

Our Correspondent visited the Guernsey Motor Cycle and Car Clubs awards evening at the weekend and collected himself a rather nice award. It was the Rothmans award for services to the club, something Eddie seemed to be speechless about....well there is a first time for everything!!

Hope he wasn't allowed to leave the Rock with it. They think milk bottle tops have a high redeemable value back in Coventry, heavens knows what they would think of that bit of silverware.

He travelled "light" so it sits on my mantelpiece for when he returns to visit his money ;-)......all these words that one wouldn't normally use for our correspondent..."light"..."speechless"... Quite a surreal event !!

I hope he's cleared it with Jaguar Landrover, if that trophy is worth more than about fifty seven pence it could be construed as a bribe...

Good move. Not only will it be properly insured there but also it won't be open to mildew attack in the semi basement elephant trap that Our Correspondent calls home.

Ah but the title remains with the GMC&CC. I'm told scrap value is about £2250

Then it's definitely a bribe... there's a lot of scrap yards in Coventry.

Personally I think this should be a "News" item over there on the right of the page..."Our Correspondent receives prestigious award from the Premier Motorsport Club" ;-)

You can take the boy out of Coventry but you can't take Coventry out of the boy. The only value he understands is what price Taronis are bidding that day
