      Parisians can be touchy, but so are many city people, I worked in France for two years, with my voice, the Marseille accent came normally, and you do not want to get into an argument with me

      There are several major disadvantages to being a successful racer in Canada. Parts & fuel have always cost more up here (at times as much as 50% more). Our racing season is relatively short, realistically May - Mid October at the latest.

        When I was racing in the early 80's Avgas was already $3.00 a gallon & racing fuel even more.
