Trailer reversing

I submit a list of all the people in my family who can reverse a car with a trailer behind it:

It is not, as perhaps you can see, a very long list. It occurs to me, as a result of an experience I just had which I shall not now discuss, that a particularly interesting motor sport would be this: to set up a row of cars each with a trailer attached, and have them race, in reverse gear, around a track. Curborough might be suitable. I would even come to watch.

In other and wholly unrelated matters, I have finally added a seat to the penny trike. Equipped with bits of wood to sit on, it proved popular among teenage visitors, but only one could ride it.

 Bits of wood as seat

 More bits of wood as seat

Sort of mobile park bench

It can now be ridden by one person, or by two side-by-side provided each co-operates using one pedal and one side of the handlebar, and it can accommodate two further passengers facing backwards provided they don't all mind their bums touching. It is not the fastest vehicle I have ever built, but it has occasioned some merriment from those using it.
