WTF? I never win anything! Happy days.

If I wasn't off to Pantyfynnon Scalextric Club, I'd watch it tonight. Will satisfy myself with as few clips on youtube while I slog away at the coalface. (Actually, babysitting two HP engineers so they dont set fire to the server room again).

sounds a bit like the Lancastrian "clog Banting" doesn't it.
My personal favourite risqué welsh phrase is "tipyn bach yn beth yn galw" ( a little bit of how's yer father).

But by far the best welsh word in common parlance is the words for microwave oven. Non welsh speakers think it's a windup, but it genuinely is used day to day.


Right, list out, time to try a bit of bedlinog.

:lol: Popty ping! I can understand why folks think you're taking the piss. Bit of a cross between pidgin and the Japanese tendency to adopt the wrong English word.

I had closed the gap to the 1st guy down to 7 seconds but my car refused to work properly on the 2 last passes of SS3(gravel) ,the braids got clogged with cocoa both times.I was slower than the previous car by 30 seconds each time.Then we raced the same stage as power stage(giving 3-2-1 points),crash and burn.The 3rd set of braids worked OK so i went for the win risking too much and i desloted on the penultimate lap.

Bad luck Alexis, but that's the risk you take when adding anything else to the track, coco, flour, water etc

Some good close racing in amongst the different stages
