    Rumours have shot throughout the motor-sport world with the news that McLaren's star chief designer Adrian Newey has taken the plunge into the 2003 motor-racing season - with a Ferrari.

    He took part in two races at the BRSCC meeting at Snetterton over the weekend of 8/9 November in Joe Macari's 355 Challenge and acquitted himself well, finishing 5th in the first race and 3rd in the second. Each time, PMFC front-runner Ted Reddick finished just ahead of him and fellow PMFC racer Witt Gamski also confirmed that 'he did drive well'.

    It is not known whether this is an attempt by Newey to take over David Coulthard's place in the F1 team or whether this is a plot by McLaren to discover the secrets of Ferrari's current circuit advantage - or whether he was just enjoying himself on a well-earned weekend off.

    I had the pleasure a few years back to drive Mr.Newey for some hot laps and then passenger while he gave it a go. I must say that he is definatly an above average driver and a real joy to chat with.
