Rather short article on Obree's attempt. Illustration depicts clown car sized fairing. It is only an artists impression...artist or comedian anyway.

Scale is misleading as it states it is 82 cm tall. that man in there must have shrunk in the wash!
Ian, racing again No 6.

Radio 4 did a feature on this in the week - of course, they mentioned washing machines...

Oh dear - the fairing does look rather large, but, as readers of my column (if there are any) will know, I have alot of respect for Obree and wish him every success. I don't think he's by nature a quitter, so, hopefully, even if this one isn't quick then he'll try again.
