What Else Is Sir Clive Up To?

As well as being a fully fledged inventor, dear old Uncle Clive is also a professional in the internationally acknowledged sport of C5 racing, which is a bit like Formula 1 only with C5s. Last year he came 2nd in the World Championships which were held in Cirencester, Wiltshire, where he was beaten by the current No 1 C5 racer, Paul Shane, from TV's Oh Dr Beeching! Clive did however pip many other hopefuls at the post, such as the former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan and American law-breaking 'Film Star' Traci Lords. The bookies' favourite for the race was newsreader and University Challenge presenter Jeremy Paxman, but he span off the track after lap 27.
