Early afternoon and he challenges his sister (2 1/2 years old) to a race, he has a Scalextric Scooby she has a Ninco McLaren F1 GT... Here goes for another crashfest, neither of the cars are easy to drive so I tend to stay away from them. Anyway, I set the lap counter to 25 laps and start the race... For the minute or so I'm gobsmacked... no full throttle shunts into the video recorder, just a couple of minor collisions at the crossover followed by shouts of 'marshall!' (well ok... 'DADDY!' at the tops of their voices). The race ends, the Scooby wins by about 3 laps due to the little girl stopping a few times for 'pit stops', nevertheless she strings together a couple of amazing laps with the tail of the Mac all over the place... Then I see the fastest laps... 3.2 for the Scooby, 2.2 for the McLaren!!!!!
Foolishly I have a go at trying to beat 2.2 seconds in a 25 lap run... after about 5 crashes, I finally manage a 2.1 with about 2 laps to go... later on my wife tries and can't beat 2.5 seconds...
I think I'm going to retire... given a few years I won't stand a chance!!!
