    It's approaching the end of yet another year, and I'm approaching 4 years on Racedepartment now. 2011 has been the quietest year for me, with exams, work and social life taking over, I definiately haven't been able to race or post in this forum as much as I would like to compared to years gone by. I saw a thread in another forum which I thought I would "Borrow" :D as I thought it was a nice, friendly touch to sum up 2011 on Racedepartment. Just complete the following few questions answering with a member of Racedepartment. Hopefully most members can have a go at this, and nobody gets offended if they aren't selected. I will do my list too in a few days :)
