Boufie, not read that, I'll seek it out.

A 'travelling circus' type of sport that still has some of the old F1's cameraderie is showjumping. My daughter rides at a yard where the yard owner (at the horsey equiv of maybe Formula 3) can decide at a whim to hitch a ride for her and a horse or two in a rival yard's lorry and compete in, say, Italy for the week. Or stay at home, or whatever. The 'journeyman' showjumper still exists like the journeyman racing driver used to

Thanks for the Blue flag update BoufeyWolf & Wolf35!

Regarding F1 in the 60's, when Graham Hill raced at Monaco, on the run down lap he parked his F1 car outside Rosie's bar went in for drink or two!

Alonso's hubris knows no bounds. This is from the guy who parked his car in the pits in a fit of pique when he thought he wasn't getting his way and was being out-performed by his more talented team mate.

I standby my first comment and add that like all other sports, once the big wads of tobacco money came the door the respect went out the window. And the gold leaf lotus was long before villenuve's brief time!

Hi there! This article could not be written much better!
Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
He continually kept preaching about this. I am going
to send this post to him. Pretty sure he'll have a great read. Thank you for sharing!
