Nationale autosport in Nederland anno 2018

Ik zal me waarschijnlijk niet geliefd maken met deze blog post, maar dit moet toch gewoon effe van mijn hart af. Wat is de Nationale autosport in Nederland toch een grote farce geworden de afgelopen jaren.

20 years ago the X-wings got banned

BRING THEM BACK!!!!!! Yes i would love to see the X-Wings make their revival. I know I’m probably one of the few that loves the X-Wings. Probably one of the few that remembers the wings at all.
