This guy has an air of Arthur Daly about him don't ya think? And no i wouldn't buy a car off him either lol
He's trying to grab money in any way he can. Small example but an example nonetheless...

Brands Hatch WSB entertainment free...ok so it's the Po Boys but i've seen a lot worse and in any case it is FREE

Donington WSB entertainment is £12 or is it £15 per night and you don't get much for that AND you can't take your own beer in...you have to buy it. We are already paying for the weekend ticket and camping but you just want to screw us out of every penny you can. Mug that i am will continue to go because i love my bike racing and it's the only WSB venue this year.

Smug git!

LMFAO - What a great comment,nice one mate !!!

I think this whole F1 saga is just really stupid and sad,pure ego and greed.I was watching the Formula 1 classics on ESPN over the weekend,they showed the F1 British GPs from 74,75,77,78 and 79.F1 in those days was so much more exciting.It's a lost cause now.They need to go back in time and look at how everything was organised and run back then and use that as the starting point and start again.Not as much money back then,now it's just gotten totally out of hand.

Presumably money from the ticket sales in august is going to be used to pay all the contractors who are still owed thousands by Gillett and DVLL. It's about time they got their financial house in order before goning onto bigger things.I hope the contractors for F1 have been paid up front?!.

What a fine mess you have got us into Max. Donnington not really a hope of being able to stage a FI GP yet Bernie signed them up for 17years!! Beggars belief. Now Silverstone realise that if FOTA go their own way( and i sincerely hope they do)Bernie isn't going to get silverstone back ,serve him right for slagging them off all the time.
FOTA could stage a championship with out a problem. Cheaper for them, the paying public and the circuits will get more out of it too. As for Bernie and Max et al, they have had a good run and its all about money for them nothing more.
