You should be ashamed to say such things. Rillettes are okay I suppose, but a greatly inferior to Chichester's finest. As for Super U rillettes, you can shove them up your bum!



Ahhh, Shippams, I worked there in the school hols in the '60's.

I could tell you a few stories about what went into the famous Fish Paste, but I wouldn't want anyone to get into trouble Wink

Super U had three different Rillettes on offer last week so all three were purchased and we settled down for a Rillette world cup. The own brand product was pretty poor indeed and was used in a childish catapulting game reminissant of the classic game 'sh*tty shotty' a game which, had it reached olympic status, I would have excelled at and won several golds for the independent state of Yorksestershire!   
 The best Rillette was the one in the glass jar that is a bastard to open. Very nice indeed.

Perhaps they could get Shippams to sponsor the British World Shitty-Shotty Team. Beijing here you come!

I can see replica sports tops on sale...

By gad, sir - you're a genius! Chris Amon, one of the unluckiest men in top level motorsport, in terms of the manure that surrounded him time after time. That said, I believe him to be hale and hearty in his 60s, which many contemporaries never reached for the usual tragic reason. I assume you'd read the Eoin Young (also a Kiwi, I think?) biography?

This was, for the benefit of anyone still awake, 1967, and Chris was sharing a Ferrari 330P4 with Nino Vaccarella. The retirement was before 11 p.m. I found the story in the new book "Ferrari au Mans 1961-67" by Francois Hurel, which follows on from the same author's series on Ford, Porsche & Matra (at least). Natch it's in French, but the pics are superb, and technical details are international in their nature. The interjections with little tales like this one make it a very good read if you have even basic French, like wot I have got. I bought it during the 24 hrs, and I think the (English-speaking) seller said they were going really fast. But then a Ferrari book would!


Eoin is indeed a Kiwi. I have a glass of lunch with him at least once a week. Chris. Amon is still hale and hearty, has retired from farming and is living a relaxing life on the northern shores of Lake Taupo, enjoying his boat "Can-am"

Hey Kiwi - long time no see!   I have been wondering how you got on with your broken foot at LM in June?  Did you make it after all?

Eion is indeed a Kiwi- I've just finished reading his book on Bruce McLaren- a great read.
 I got the story from my journo pal who navigates for me on historic road rallies. Lucky bugger went out to interview him last year. I get to hear some great stories from Nige, he really has the best job getting to meet all those guys and gets to drive some amazing cars. He offered me a staffers job on a mag last year doing technical bits and bobs but the mag folded after four editions so that was that. Shame really.

Yes - we made it - thanks to the CA team for camping and grandstand passes. Had an amazing time of it. Foot was a hassle but I managed.

Don't think I will make it back next year, but aiming for 2010.

If you're coming over in 2010 Mr Kiwi you need to come over for a month and catch the Classic, fantastic weekend (but don't tell anyone else!) Shame to come all that way and miss it ;-)

If the bank balance can handle it, that is what I would like to do.

I am looking forward to it already!

A mate who was at the classic this year dropped off a programme for me today... Damn that looks good
