Ronnie O'Sullivan endured mixed fortunes as he made his debut as a motor racing driver.

O'Sullivan was at Silverstone this weekend racing in the VW Cup. He qualified at the back of the grid for the first race but spun off into a gravel trap, which he described as "a novice mistake."

He fared better in the second race, finishing 14th, which was creditable considering this was his first taste of action.

"At least I got a whole race in. It was a good experience, I enjoyed it very much and now I'm looking forward to having another crack at Brands Hatch next month," O'Sullivan said.

it is quite possible that he will leave snooker for good... it seems that he's falling in love with racing so... it sure will be the biggest loss this sport has suffered ever! Hope that doesn't happen!!!

i think snooker would flourish without him.

i see it as a circus losing a very good clown who is taking away from all the other good acts in the circus by always being the centre of attention and being more than a little bit naughty on the way.

to me, thats not snooker. whatever floats yer boat.

No, Ronnie is not snooker. We need people who can make maximums, win multiple world championships, entertain and showcase true talent.

Oh wait.....

Snooker The Fine Art Method
A secret is wasted if not shared
Dear Dave
How are you lad? You don’t seem to realise how much influence you have or can have on the snooker public. Especially the younger players (in chat) that love and worries for the game.

Please make more effort Dave to comment on threads of discussion as many posts are seeking opinions (on snooker) and sometime advice as well. If you haven’t an answer or even an opinion; ask the chatter merchants around or the "know all posts" and create friendly discord.

I find personally that I haven’t been insulted and ridiculed nearly as many times as on previous forums. With your permission Dave I would like to contact my many old acquaintances from previous sites.
Mr hey you
PS You were wrong Dave to placate your loyal punters with snooker figures from China, its a kind of cheating! DM
