a grand prix in London is just plain daft #F1 #LondonGP

What is this obsession with city street races? They may have worked well enough into the 1970s, but ground effect and the development of aerodynamics really killed the relevance. Sure Monaco has survived and thrived, but Monaco is Monaco and somehow it still works. Continue reading

Oops! We found some stuff we had forgotten

Whilst having a bit of a clear out we’ve found a couple of lengthy draft posts that we were working on a good while ago and never got around to finishing.

One is on the Ford GT40 at Le Mans and the other is on the Hunt versus Morgan incident in F3 back in 1970. Both are almost done, but are at that stage where there is a bit of detailed research to be completed in order to make sure that we get them as correct as we can manage.

Both have been printed off and we are working on making up a list for each of the things that need to be verified, or taken out.

We will try and get that done in the coming weeks and get both posts published. Apologies if you saw the trailers for these and have been waiting for the outcome.

Weekend round up – 17th June 2012

So to the action: Continue reading

why didn’t the Canadian GP start at 0800 EST? #F1

OK, so our tongue is firmly in cheek here, but if Bernie can put pressure on the Aussies to run their GP in the evening so that us European viewers can watch it at our normal GP viewing time why are the Canadian, and the US and Brazil for that matter, organisers not under pressure to start their races on 0800 EST? Continue reading

Weekend round up – 10th June 2012 #Indycar #NASCAR #F1

Plenty of top action this weekend with #IndyCar from Texas, #NASCAR out in the wilds of Pocono and #F1 on the river in Canada. Plenty of pit road speeding penalties too.

In the UK, the #BTCC saw a good weekend for Honda with Matt Neal taking two wins and Gordon Sheddon the other at the wonderful Oulton Park. We try to keep folks up to date with our Tweets on most major motor sports, so please feel free to follow @TheDriverJohn on Twitter. Continue reading

#F1 Could Canada learn from Bahrain?
