I read tonight that Craig Lowndes is to be honoured at the Clipsal 500 this weekend for having the most ever starts in V8 Supercars. He's 42 now - how did that happen? Well obviously I know how it happened but goodness where did the time go? It doesn't seem that long ago that he was the new kid on the block. Thinking back over his career, he's only had one really serious accident, in 1999, but was only sidelined for one round as a result and still went on to win the championship. Not bad, hey.
Finally I stumbled upon this essay by Sharon Wheeler, about The Larton Chronicles - nothing really new, but nice to see it getting some meta. Probably by now everyone else has seen it - I think the code under the title means it was posted in 2012 - but it was new to me.
