In episode 85 of FEC Martin and Simon turn back time to August 1993 and re-live the fags, mags and bags of a classic British Grand Prix at Donington Park when:

• Doohan played skittles with Schwantz and Barros

• Yamaha’s Luca Cadalora followed team orders – Suzuki team orders

• Foggy needed a reserve tap

• Mackenzie needed no invitation

Also in this week’s FEC:

• Guy Martin’s Irish driving licence
• Triumph’s Scrambler 1200 XC and XE ridden and crashed

• more on police scooter crash tactics

• how to accidentally spend £18k on a winter bike, and how to protect it

• more advice on PCP v credit cards

• why there’s life in magazines yet!

Simon, Mufga, and all at www.BikeSocial.co.uk would like to wish all you FECers a Merry Xmas and Happy New Year, and look forward to filling your ears in 2019.
