#144 Richard drives the Aston Martin V12 Vantage (and so Gareth and Zog hate him). Also we look forward to Le Mans this year and back at a very special Le Mans win. Plus, new GJOS music: "Reciprocating Pistons" from The Super Fiery Cannonballs.

Supra Fiery Cannonballs – Reciprocating Pistons

I’m no piston head
No, that’s someone else instead
They like camshafts
And I’m the one who’s Welsh

Bu if it came to a point
Where I had to make a decision
I would likely suffer
Howls of derision

CHORUS
Coz I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I’m banging on about it
But nobody listens
Let’s say goodbye to reciprocating pistons.

They’ve done a sterling job
For a century or more
But in terms of their efficiency
That strategy is poor

They’ve had their ups and downs
They are noisywhen in towns
The belief going round is that
They have reached their upper bounds

CHORUS
Coz I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I’m banging on about it
But nobody listens
Let’s say goodbye to reciprocating pistons.
Mmmmmm.

Ba ba ba ba ba (ba ba ba ba ba ba)

Oh Mazda solved the issue of the "chatter marks" problem
They are so much better with now with Teflon seals on them
This is my chief bugbear and it really rankles
The idea I propose is that we look again at Wankels.

CHORUS
Coz I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I’m banging on about it
But nobody listens
Let’s say goodbye to reciprocating pistons.

Coz I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I don’t want no reciprocating pistons
I’m banging on about it
Nobody listens
Let’s say goodbye to reciprocating pistons.

Ba ba ba ba ba (ba ba ba ba ba ba)
