2004 Alternative Championship Bumper Edition: European, Canadian & U.S. Grands Prix

FEATURE BY MARGEIT & CROMPTON

If you, like us at the Alternative Championship Headquarters (ACHQ), are prone to bouts of narcolepsy, to fits of pique, to lapses of memory and to sporadic bursts of anger, then you will be forgiven, as we hope you will forgive us, for missing the last three rounds of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

Having completed the mountain of work expected of two lazy and ineffective layabouts, we naturally celebrated by adjourning to our local, the Plumbers Arms, in search of amber and ample refreshment. What followed is hazy at best and a complete fog at worst, suffice to say that some four weeks later we are still feeling the side-effects of a night of ill-judged, poorly executed and at times, downright criminal, revelry.

None of this is excusable. However, should you, our dear and loyal readers, find it within yourselves to forgive us for our recent absence, then we would be eternally grateful (as we would be to Grace should she choose to have the restraining order removed).

Before we continue, we feel a brief rundown of the events (as we remember them) leading up the decline and fall of the ACHQ Empire is necessary;
