  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval

  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).

  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • Wizzo: Hi Greg, you're better off telling us about your concept in a written post on the forum for all to see. I'm sure you'll get a few opinions.

  • Greg_82: Hello, anyone online to discuss?
    November 06, 2017, 05:51:35 PM
  • Greg_82: the best would be to go on skype to discuss the concept, would that be possible with some of you guys?
    November 06, 2017, 12:31:49 PM
  • Greg_82: I'm new and I would like to know if some of you would have some time to spend with me because I'm launching a new concept about F1 and I would like to have your idea

Grid Girls Return!

  • Grid Girls will return to F1! (For Monaco, anyway).

    Michel Boeri, the top dog of the Monaco GP, says that they will have Grid Girls at their race.

    "They'll be there on the grid, but (they) won't be holding any nameboards. They'll at least be communication hostesses.

    "They're beautiful, and the cameras will be on them once again.

    "Our American friends assume it hurts female feelings, but our hostesses go to modeling and PR schools, and they're paid well. Why in the world should I stop 30 women from earning a living?"

    I guess the Racing Rug Rats Grid Kids will be holding the signs. I wonder if anyone has checked into possible violations of child labor laws.

    Also, the Russian GP is talking about having Grid Girls, too.

  • Good on Michel, nobody forces females to be grid girls, by what right does Liberty Media presume to stop them earning a living.

  • Norah is getting warmed up, just in case the British GP reinstate Grid Girls!!  (or a backup position of Debris Sweeper).

    I've said before Liberty Media are hypocrites as once they stopped Grid Girls they should have disbanded the cheerleaders of the US football team they own who were at the U.S. GP last year and wore far less than most Grid Girls.
    Ian is also correct that the girls who do it come from all walks of life and do it by choice and these days of liberation why should those who do not want to do it protest against those who do!
    As I'm sure you can tell I am not impressed with Liberty Media and expected a different stance from Ross Brawn.

    I am right there with you on that aspect.   I think Ross has become a "muted member" of LM's 3 Musks ... and you know that it was one of LM's better ideas to hang onto Ross, as they know diddly squat about F1.

    I have to be honest here and say that I enjoy the freedom to discuss LM here on GPW, as I have had minor issues on other forums, where the slightest criticism of LM ... well, I have been shot down at 20 paces!!! (and unfortunately, the racism card has been played).

    All the best,
    Cal :)

  • Really?  Someone from their head office or a member of Chase’s family??  Who would get all worked up about FOM criticism?   |-(
