Where is Sniff Petrol
Something is missing.....
Been tuning into this for the last 6months or so and love it. From the driving reviews from Gareth to the group chats, it never fails to entertain. Thanks folks!
On a note about the virtual racing - I agree that something that is a thing in its own right is better than attempting to recreate something real, badly. So how about virtual 90s BTCC racing? Time travel isn’t possible so we can’t do this in reality but could be achieved virtually. We all love a bit of 90s touring cars, let’s bring it back, virtually!
