It’s only right for me to thank Matt Bisogno ( for his loyalty for these last few years.  Matt is simply cutting back his editorial team now and we part on the very best of terms.  Matt is one of the good guys in racing from my experience and I obviously recommend you continue to visit his site whenever you have some time to spare.

    Sorry to see Mal go, but if anyone is thinking of signing up for his new service through here’s a warning.
