Virtual League Racing Series – Race 37

The newspaper headlines announced that ‘a Lancashire WC team ravaged by illness and injury’ had lost its top spot in the Virtual Age-graded competition. Interviewed by a leading commentator on Cretan radio, Tony Taylor surrounded by a flock of goats announced, ‘never fear, uphill or down dale’, we’ll bounce back!
