Kev EnglishWatched another two great races on Sunday. Apart from the last couple of minutes of the last race (no idea who won) due to Front Runner on Sky 468 cutting to a guy skateboarding! Wish all the Mini Challenge calendar were televised, not just JCW. Due to F1 selling out, I only follow MC & BTCC.
