Whilst on Killick's Course at Mercury I rose to the dizzy heights of Fire Engine Driver. It was a Series I or II Land Rover Defender decked out as a fire tender. The battery was kept trickled charged on a mains lead into a socket on the garage wall. First time I drove this beast in anger I drove out of the garage and pulled the socket from the wall. To add injury to insult I ran over the charger again when parking up the Landie back in the garage. The Buffer, needless to say, was not a happy-chappy next day!
