In The News

When is a Meteor not a Meteor, when it is a Prescott. It appears Watsonian have change the name of their long running sidecar known as the Meteor. Which is fine but I always think of a certain labour politician when I hear that name.

 I assume the name is taken from  https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Prescott,+Cheltenham/@51.9631606,-2.0318562,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x48711e5f40e6e30b:0x50d8b23d497a0c0!8m2!3d51.9567344!4d-2.0126094

Prescott is a settlement and civil parish in the Cotswolds within the English county of Gloucestershire. There are scattered farms and houses. There may once have been a settlement around the chapel. Prescott Speed Hill Climb is a motor sport event held in the parish https://www.prescott-hillclimb.com/  

Found this photo when searching Prescott Hill Climb (don’t known who to accredit)

Question is the small wheel there for left of right handers?

This looks interesting, take a good look at the suspension arrangement!
