Anguloeme 2012 !....

Dad and I just had a TOP boys adventure!


I have been to Anguloeme "Circuit Des Ramparts" before but Dad

had not...(Can you see it coming?!) So in "Typical Matt" style I

decided he needed to go, so began the tenuous and ill thought out


(Huge thanks to Jane for having Samuel for a week while we went!)


Anguloeme race is a MUST for all historic car nuts (ie Dad and I !) as

its a gathering of lots of classic racers that are USED and not stored and polished!


I got flights to Limoge (Yes QEH! I tookLOADS of sun screen!) then onto a

friends house...(Who had agreed to loan us his campervan to drive the rest

of the way and stay in for 2 nights!) So after parking it at night RIGHT outside

the local prison (- Who were understanding and let us continue our stay there!)

we had a sleepless night listening to the locals in the town, each others farting, snoring, various grunts and toilet wanderings! But were refreshed and excited to see all the sights, drink coffee and watch as the mad French let all the racers (all un licensed and no number plates etc) all drive through pedestrianised shopping arcades, closed roads, local roads, and not once did you hear

"Oi - put a silencer on that thing!".... The circuit is around a small town in

the south of France abd not without danger, as there is nominal barriers, and beyond the barriers peoples houses!! 

My wonderful heart propelled me around admirably and coped with the heat



Roll on 2014?!....

About Matt.

My name's Matt. I was born with a congenital heart defect which hampered me in my youth, and sadly became a terminal conditon recently, and beyond the (amazing) care of the BRI-Bristol Heart team.

In 2008, my condition deteriorated, to a point I was happy to see Xmas 2008. I had prepared to die.

Then in January 2009, a late night phone call from QEH-Hospital Birmingham changed my world, when they offered me a heart transplant, if I could get there pronto!!

6 months on, after a rocky start, I am still alive, thanks to them!

Read on to see how my new life is taking shape, and my adventures to date!....
