MotoGP » Circuit of Wales responds to Donington split


What a load of BS !! If they had the funds they would have initiated the process of getting the 2015 GP going. But CoW have been stalling, probably waiting for hand out from Government or private parties. Anybody who really knew what they were doing would have had all the preliminary planning already underway, before signing contracts. I think it was Pie in the Sky on the part of Cow ..... !!!

F1 » F1: V6 engine ‘attracts new fanbase’


I used to work for Ascari, and we used to run a V12 Ferrari at Monte Carlo during the invite races. Klaas Zwart would never just drive around the track, but would have a real good send, and it was awesome to hear the real sound of a true F1 car in the hallow sanctum of Monte Carlo. In particular a lot of people would particularly be there just to hear the sound, in particular the Ferrari mechanics from the race team. So NO, the BS of the new sound being liked is just that ....... BS!!!!!!

F1 » F1: V6 engine ‘attracts new fanbase’


I will admit I do not understand the modern age. I am 67, I have been fortunate to live through it all, 2 terrorist wars, Off-Road racing, long Safaris in the African bush. Servicing many race cars, from F1 to dune buggies, and I have never been scared of noise or needing a safe environment. So I can not understand people people being in bodily fear of the real sound of real F1 cars. I have been to Lemans a lot, I have worked in the pits and spectated, and I feel fantastic in that environment. So I do not believe the BS of people being happy with the new sound of F1. As an enthusiast, I LOVE the real sound.
