The Victor Meldrew Challenge - 12th November 2011

The Victor Meldrew Challenge is aimed at drivers who once aspired to be in Formula One and who have been subsequently usurped by more youthful opponents. After a successful inaugural event in 2007, support for the 2008 Victor Meldrew Trophy was outstanding with many drivers voting with their pension books and entering, with this support continuing.

To ensure parity in what is usually the most diverse grid of the year, the races are handicapped, thereby giving the infirm the same chance as one or two young people who appear to have found their way into the event via subterfuge.

In order to ward off any attempt by these young people to walk off with the fabled Victor Meldrew trophy, there also exists another layer of handicapping wherein the drivers age and weight, length of marriage, sight correction, groin pain, audible creaking, moaning and dribbling are entered into a complex algorithm to find the truly deserving Victor victor.
