A lot of people might not realize he's a legend and he is. Yeah, most we had to serve up Cookstown, Gary unlocks and ms his retirement. Yeah, from racing up. So we're wishing in this a Kennedy all the best for the upcoming wedding. Yeah, it will help and Alsto able to mention we had in cookstown. I think one of the big stories of Cook some for me was Denil a crosby or competing. I'm just traveling all the way from Russia. Yeah, so he's come on last yeah, especially in these covered times. Yes, and so I believe he traveled across and as the other two week quarantine before. So it was a big undertaking. Yeah, it's going across and compete cooks on first ever competitive from Russia. Almost that it's his dream as yellow, obviously, almost the first rush from competitor to the monks. I'm pretty last year. Yeah, and another one of the outcomers of impressed was Ryan Whitehole, Uh Huh, from the our white and he's don't want to watch credit, by our accounts, a great entertaining styles. Are the very shitting costic goten to those or watching him? Yeah, I wanted a year as well. This way in the years has been large and years loads of big news has been massive up, major up there. And I think one place,...

...the first place for me, I think we've got starts to t take scoreboards. Yeah, well, there's a lot of controversy over that score board, isn't they I can see. I understand now, after having read a lot of things, why it's been remember, but it's still a shame because it's history. It's yeah, well, we we're it. My opinion it can repaired. There's some good lads out there, good boy would and some good lads out there good we're metal work and I think what the candle, in my opinion, is the can compromise there and get some digital stuff on it and incorporated with I think that's what's going to happen for the neame score. But it's going to be a mix of the star which you feel, yeah, president, and with the one day old yeah, and and in instead of the scouts or where they passing the boards up, they're getting to press the butt yess, and they'll bring the the things on. So this will be happy conclosure. There's been a lot of talking about what happening. There's been a especially on the alamand there was a questionnaires put out one day and everything so and everybody had the opportunities to put the toll paen of thing whatever whatever there for so up. But anyway apparently somebody pine part of it. Last I did. They yeah, the map of the data cost around the that's a big piece timber way there. So, oh, nobody saw him on the main road going through Douglass and also the you have a you that to have a blooming big vanance of it to pull it all in and it will just one bamble bids take it down, just a go to the hour of the police fandos take it and if we get to hear about is right there place and as its unique piece of teachers or by ironic that it was taken the when its old, this controversy about it. Yeah, the other thing is I wonder if the when the dual take it all down. The take it down, knock just bulldoz it down. The take it down. Yeah, and they could. They can auction it and also that the door... moment thing of it and the door photography memory of it. So it's little down. The scouts already have the right picture taken with it before it's yeah, now I mean I mean the council, whoever it is, I think Magus banks ter teaches involving I think, going to be maintaining everything. So so it's all sorts of utter said. It's not just going to be so. It's recorded history under the thousands millions of pictures of it. But I was I would have thought that the don would do all that. Anyhow. Don't do all that. I hope so. I hope so. And BE TRITMAN's announce his intention to compete internastional road races. That year we've got a new soaper by contract. Was, I pretty sourcle bates as well. We're not sure that's with hit bog of for being I'm skin in the future. Yeah, we've got a good idea on we yes, I think, but we can't say. But everyone might be surprised. But bad, I don't know. No, no, anyway. The resolves today the many years has been that maybe my NBA's read from his raw after twenty years. As Event Direction offwes two hundred. Yeah, well, it's about. Yeah, it's out all this year and he and he was going to retail last year. I think it's going to retailed here before that as well. So you know, rink, considering the way they but but I think, yeah, I mean it never means been there. We've been involved with a north question under for I think maybe, if with respect to the man, he kept on for the last few years because to us, nobody else couldn't be stepping into his boats. Or was they? So they felt I'll just keep doing it for an extra year. So but now, with everything that's going on, with everything is it's still going to be involved with him oil still in the future. I thought Castle still be involved with the one of the lease. Yeah, it's final. It won't be the the like the the manager of Liverpool or somebody like that. It will be one of the back room...

...staff. No, no, no, he isn't a believe you, and I will say said you'd be so involved. I like a consultancy basis to help. Yeah, yeah, so the like. Yeah, so what's you know? But the man's going to give me a lot of stick over the as. But I think is in the well there. Yeah, well, this is it. In it is when you're in charge. You dumbed if you do any dumb if you do so. But, as event should have you, look at the facts. Fake itself. Since he's been in charge, standard the races gone up. Stand, the venture is gone up. It's more sponsorship. Then you say he's increased the TV coverage in but now in Baden. You know, Nice tribute to him. Yeah, right, I read that. I read where. Yeah, that was good here, but Glenn would one as good luck. But SA. Oh well, wish him from all the best in his retirement. And they're no doubt it'll always be involved with racing because once you, once you're into road race in you, it's there. You've N in for life. Even if you're not attending on them, is you still be still involved with it in somewhere around them. said the words paper one. Oh Yeah, when you retire, because it because it could up done. Yeah, it doesn't leave you. Well, that's also wish all the best to am the years. And Wendy, here's an old and you sold oil's Mount Racial Limited direct yes, now I have to say something about that. It's it was up in the air through the year anyhow. So there's all the if some, butts and wats and everybody's saying this and everybody seeing that, and so it was nice to hear that Andy and Wendy and now in overall charge Oliver's mountain and when we shull the best to where Mick and Eddie in the retailment and on to another chapter of Oliver's mount so I think it's going to be good. And he's still got shown and early there as well, earlier. So it's good. It's...

...good. I've got a lot of time for UNDY. I've got a lot of Sam for Wendy. Both good grafters and the roll for it. So rely for the right reason. They're in it for the right reasons. Yeah, so we wish them all the wealth of all the best from road racing. Your same here and hope the next year we'll see how I was run for me is yeah, hopefully, I think has crossed.
