During the 1984 season, the Tyrrell team had its results stripped after a technical infringement. Martin Brundle took part in 9 Races so maybe that accounts for most of the difference. My source is in the spoiler no idea how reliable it is.

It does look vaguely familiar. Probably not one I have actually visited though, unless it is Milton Keynes, which I doubt.

Bluewater?

Well I just put two and two together doing zero research Mick, but peruse that gallery from Park Royal Brewery and I'm sure it cant just be coincidence!

Well Peter Brotherhood Ltd of Peterborough appear to have built the power station for Guinness and I am assuming the company either sponsored the shopping park in response to Aberdeen Investments request for sponsors, or the park was built on an old Brotherhood site!! https://www.peterbrotherhood.com/

Thanks for the additionals Mick, unless "Brotherhood of Man" the Eurovision Song Contest winners were from Peterborough I think the Brotherhood Shopping Park must have some link with the engineering firm :-D

Quite Correct! The Peterborough Telegraph Confirms it.
https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/new ... rm-1133858
The firm relocated to Peterborough in 1907 and made its home in Lincoln Road occupying a site spreading across more than 20 acres. The site is now the home to Brotherhoods Retail Park.

and one of Peterborough's other retail offerings is called Serpentine Green, but that just familiarity phenonemon, not FCF "force X" at work.

It could be time for a second delve into my Birthday present. You may remember we started with the original seven gates of London so I am going to select Ermine Street as the spine for these next three questions:

1. The Old North Road (A10) coming out of London is also known as G---- --------- ---d?

2. Which place on our theme is Charted Gnomes?

3. Can you find the names of a printer, a London Borough and a house type along the route of our theme road?
