    Yeah I knew that so what does that make these guys?/ ( true confession Antti, English is second language for me and i always had trouble with names for relations much beyond "Uncle"...those guys over next country west if you, that's my 3rd language and their clear way "morfar, farfar, morbror" that was better so )

    Oh anther thing, please..We you said "(I was her race engineer)" what do you mean engineer?
    Mekaniker? Skruva o banka p[ paneller?

    I hear that and in Engrish an engineer is some guy at desk with pocket protector and 2cm thick glasses who is capable of occasionally drawing stuff which after giant battles might be a part, might just be junk....mainly a nerdy guy who biologically CANNOT hold a wrench without somebody getting hurt..
    hence the name "injur-near"

    But I hear that a lot...
    so what do you mean?

    Ah ha! Now you see why I was confuse...

    So why are you "race engineer"?
    Engineers design stuff that is over-complicated and intended to drive me insane if I'm makng it in my role as machinist (svarv o fräs) or in my roll as mechanic or meccano. Trust me, many times if who design some crap was around they would be 'inhur-near"..

    So help me understand cause I see that word used a lot and really (not tooooo serious but then again I never am) but really curious...

    Lots of crashes on the Autoglym Rally - Greensmith, Nordgren and Huttunen all went out. Actually it was quite rare that in a Finnish national event the top four places were taken by foreigners (Neuville, Veiby, Arai, Katsuta).
