think just heard this

I think I just heard this phrase on the radio:
“…meanwhile, over on Radio 4 long wave, lawn mower racing…”

A bit of digging reveals, and the fact that today is the British Lawn Mower Racing Association’s annual 12 hour race.

“As the grasshead racers gun their Atcos and Qualcasts round a field in Dorset at a dizzying 35mph, Murray [Walker] is moved to pick up his commentator’s microphone once more to describe this most spectacular, and democratic, of motor sports. ”

I’d better go tune in…
