Not many of you, in fact nobody, spotted the flaw in my previous suggestion that I ‘self identify’ as the “pole sitter” in the Challenge races. {At this point Doctor Jack you can go direct to the end and avoid the allegedly soporific explanation}. My proposal was based on the “Zeno Paradox” (Zeno of Elea c. 490–430 BC) which came to me as I was warbling in the bathroom as part of the morning ablutions. As you all recall, this particular paradox highlights the concept of infinity is problematical. In a race, the quickest can never overtake the slowest, since the pursuer must first reach the point whence the pursued started, so that the slower must always hold a lead. Imagine for one fleeting moment the consequence. Ergo nobody could catch me up and I would claim the laurel wreath to the accompanying strains of Hail the Conquering Hero. Big Applause! Unfortunately those eternal killjoys i.e. Mafematicians queued up over the centuries to pee on this bonfire.
I don’t think that Zeno entered into Mr. Thompsons mindset as he set pole at Donington. With attendant coolant problems in the pretty red car I ultimately resorted to Doctor Jacks ‘ “cheeks firmly clenched “ approach and I did indeed improve , such as to better my previous times. If I could only persuade the other contestants not to do the same.

Very good to see you as well Peter. Although blaming your incontinence on the car is a bit like blaming the dog for a terrible odour methinks!!! :lol:
On the positive side, without coolants, your car must have been lighter and therefore faster. Maybe if you leave out the petrol as well...or maybe not... #-o

Simon your last suggestion is not a silly as it might sound … it would not be the first time Peter tried that ploy, as reported in the media at the time.

Im glad that you have stared the exercise regime and that you have improved your lap time
So now you are ready for exercise 2

Once again sit on the floor with your legs out in front of you
(now the tricky bit)
Pretend your foot is in the flat out position
Now Clench 1 cheek at a time and keep your foot planted
once mastered it worth a Second a lap
