Ooh Severe Marking Mick there's no denying Michael Lee was a World Champion, and Lee appears in the post.

Now you know several times in the Hi-Fi discussions yesterday "White Cotton Gloves" were mentioned. While Famously Jimmy White never won the World Professional Snooker Championship like Michael he also won a World Championship in 1980 (World Amateur Champion) and 1984 World Doubles Champion with Alex Higgins.

They look quite like the screws from my Xantia roof bars. Is that what you mean?

Did Liu Tingting ride for the Newcastle Diamonds in the 1970's early 80's? and I couldn't recognise her because of the leathers and the helmet?

For the avoidance of doubt MIck

I am plumping for Liu TingTing the Chinese Gymnast as my answer for your Q7. Which World Champion made an appearance?

There's a very simple reason for me being oblivious Neil.
I avoid sport like the plague, any form of sport whatever.

I have heard of Bruce Lee though, apparently unavoidable.
I had no idea that there was a speedway course around here but then I am a new boy, only lived here since 1978.

And had a Renault 11 that belonged to a Newcastle ball kicker who's sister lived in the next street.

Lets move onto another question then Mick, I'll leave someone else to find "your" world champion.

So lets remind ourselves of the comment re VE Day

8. What made VE day possible?

Correct! That puts you on 30 points Neil, Bobins on 10, 2 to go. Both answers can be found in videos. The actual World Champion appears in one video in the OTCL and the other answer is in a video but not in the OTCL!! :) :)

Now that would have been pretty impossible to trace without the clue..

2. Where is a much fatter O ring useful?

Crankcase breather in 1.6HDi/TDCi (Peugeot/Citroen/Ford/Volvo/Mini)
