A quote from my father who I got hooked on this grand endevour:


"Ned has ridden to the thin air of high achievement. He came with character and persistence to a lonely road were few reach glory at the end."


Congratulations again Ned!

The French weren't selling it to him, but they were selling him the missiles he was using to shoot at the NATO planes. This is a matter of public record, look it up. So a little thing like a motorsports competition? What's to stop them from doing as they please?

So anyone who can twist their tail, is alright by me. Guess what Ned just did?

Come on the French doing things like that no way CD took the wrong path and got back his lost time and SP whinning about Robby smoking him so he has his ghestopo, make a rule change on Robby's truck/Rig .



Back to Ned GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
