Matters of the Moment   
Last weekend I was privileged to visit the old Masaryk race circuit at Brno, deep in the Czech Republic. Opened way back in 1930, and measuring 18 miles in length, it provided a real challenge to the top drivers of the day. Now, of course, 90 per cent of the track has been swallowed up by modern roads, houses and industrial estates. However, enough remains, especially when passing through the undulating forests to get the imagination, if not the car, into top gear. Wonderful.
