Any of you lot entered any actual races? I know it’s not cheap, but I’d love to get into some kind of motorsport on a regular basis. 

I can see me going down an internet rabbit- hole with this question, but thought I’d ask you ugly fuckers first.

Na, far too expensive for me. Track days are one thing, but racing is just a whole new level of expense I don't really want to get into. What do you fancy?

It was jus a thought, last night, and I haven’t  really taken it any further than that. Me and a few mates were looking at getting into karting, as a few of us hook uP every  few months at local tracks, and I suppose my thought process went to real cars, so to speak. 

 I think, like you say,   Owain, it can start to get stupidly expensive, even at a brief glance.

Yeah problem is that you're no longer the guy buying cheap second hand racing parts and part-worn slicks for no money, you're the guy buying them new at full price, using them up then selling them for nothing at the end of the day. Entry fees can be a lot, you need a lot of gear etc.

I used to race in formula 1 but it was boring and now I earn shit loads  working in IT.

 It would be cheaper for you to buy a hydrolic sim set up.

Yeh, Soulman, I remember that time you you beat Damien Hill at Super  Monaco. The handbreak turn you pulled On The last corner is still the most watched video on YouTubes.

 That was good but my most epic moment was when everyone thought I was gonna crash when I hit this oil patch, but I was able to slide my way from third to first on the last lap just before the finish line with only 3 wheels.  Oddly there is no video footage of this anywhere and everyone has forgotten about it.

Like the time you were on your scrambler racing that lorry through the drainage canals in America. The guy in second place was relentless!

The theme tune to that is a fucking banger. I still randomly start humming it. Mainly at funerals.

The best thing about humming at funerals is nobody can figure out where it's coming from so it's okay

And yeah, for the price of one race weekend you could buy yourself an awesome at-home sim setup.
