F1 » Promoters will walk away over sound ‘disgrace’


Not saying the noise good or bad...it's just irrelevant to the sport of racing. Maybe some of you guys would be better served at burnout contests and car shows. As far as racing is concerned if it doesn't make for more speed and performance than it's IRRELEVANT. I am so ready to reap the rewards of quiet technology. How sick would an electric dirt bike be? Ripping thru the countryside not disturbing every living thing in ear shot. Tracks in every town and city will benefit from quiet technology in road racing. Indoor tracks would be more of an options for the weather challenged populations. The non-racing oriented public would be hugely appreciative of the change. I can take my motard into the mountains after work and blow off a little steam without announcing to the world my intentions. Pretty sure ktm is building a 35 hp elec dirt bike...I could ride it at a neighbor bmx spot and not even piss anybody off. Riding with others and being able to communicate is huge also.

F1 » Button tells drivers to stop complaining


@seashAck I'm a racer and a racing fan period. F1 IS racing...one need not be an "expert" to understand that. The definition of racing is quite simple...need not be an "expert" to understand that either. The sound of the power unit isn't a factor in racing. I've witnessed virtually every motor racing vehicle you can imagine IN PERSON. I have competed in many dirt track and road racing motorcycle events. I'm quite aware of what racing engines sound like past and present. I don't comment on f1 very often because I simply don't enjoy the discipline as much as other forms of racing. I have in fact attended 3 modern f1 races and have seen first hand countless historic f1 cars pitside and in action having attended the Monterey historic races for 15 years now. Living in the past is definitely not the spirit of F1. Stop moaning about what was and start accepting what will be.

F1 » Button tells drivers to stop complaining


For real Seakay? I told you my exact position on this yesterday in the other "noise" thread. Explained exactly what my history is as a fan of motor racing and the fact that I'm a racer myself. "it's a show". Sorry buddy but this is racing ...not a car show. If f1 cars look or sound good to you at the moment it's only because that look and sound have lead to increased performance. These thing aren't designed to look and sound good to you and then made into race cars as an after thought. If the engines fall silent it will be because greater or cleaner performance has required it. I grew up around racing and the sights, smells, and yes SOUNDS, are still very evocative but they don't mean anything in regards to what the future holds. The only certainty in life is change...get used to it:)

F1 » Button tells drivers to stop complaining


Real racers and race fans will always appreciate the fastest vehicles on earth. The "fans" obsessing over trivial factors like noise or the lack thereof can kick rocks. Racing will continue regardless. I don't argue this based on political ideology, I base my arguement on progress. For anyone to sit here today and take advantage of the progress humankind have made on this planet(computers,etc) and not recognize what is occurring in regards to racing and transportation in general as the same sort of progression seems a bit, well....you know. Seakay, you seem to be hanging on to the past. "Change for the sake of change"...really? Is that how you view the transition to clean and renewable energy sources? It's called change for the sake of survival. Stop holding us back by holding on so tightly to the mistakes of yesterday.
