  • Calman: Mr Happy over here Wizzo, so it's all good,  Cheers!

  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.
    April 09, 2018, 10:24:22 AM
  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • 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
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • 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).

  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • 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.

  • Calman: Took a HUGE gamble with my Bahrain Race predications, so let's see how crazy a race it may be!
    April 02, 2018, 11:26:21 PM
  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!
    March 29, 2018, 01:02:51 AM
  • Wizzo: Grid Game countdown all working again. Don't forget your predictions!
    March 28, 2018, 12:11:49 PM
  • Scott: Bahrain countdown appears to be pooched
    March 26, 2018, 06:03:26 PM
  • Wizzo: The 2018 Grid Game is now ready to play. Place your predictions for the first race now!  :yahoo:

  • Scott: I haven't abandoned GPW, just need to shift focus a bit during the off-season.
    January 27, 2018, 08:17:01 PM
  • Scott: Nice score getting an Amazon ad up there, Wizzo!   :good:
    January 03, 2018, 05:39:05 PM
  • Scott: Fraid I won't be around for the season final...we have groups at the hotel lunch and dinner and we are moving Monday am, so barely a minute to sit down...perhaps I can pop in for a minute or two at some point.

  • 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.
    November 07, 2017, 05:37:04 PM
  • 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

Just heard that Nico and Daddy will be driving in their championship winning cars around Monaco tomorrow (Thursday) ... so I hope this shows up on YouTube soon, as I would love to see this outing!!

Having been to the Spanish GP I'm hoping the Canadian GP proves more exciting for spectators at the circuit.

Looking back at previous posts I realise Scott asked me if last year was a special year or whether I'd retired and I omitted to answer. Well, I haven't retired but the biggest change was that my wife finally got into the F1 towards the end of 2016. All our kids are grown up so we don't have the ties apart from jobs to go to. We both love travel and F1 so this combines both.

On a practical point neither of us smoke and we also packed in drinking alcohol around three years ago - no other reason than the realisation it was not something we actually enjoyed anymore. So making a very conservative calc we may have got through 3 bottles of wine per week......which may have cost 20 which equals 80/month = 960 per year = a long way towards paying for a GP trip :)

So the top tips for getting to these races

  • reserve accommodation as soon as next years provisional dates appear. Many sites and hotels allow reservations with no deposit and free cancellation. Get it sorted, without a bed then you're not going!
  • once the race tickets are available then book them. Many of the races have early bird discounts which can save as much as 30% for some races. This means you can either get tickets cheaper than you expected or flip it round and get better tickets for same amount you'd budgeted
  • once you've committed to your race tickets then start tracking flight prices. Don't be totally restrictive on which day you fly out but of course match any flight saving against an extra nights accommodation. I've also found there can be a pattern on some days of the week showing cheaper flights than others and I don't mean the day you fly - I mean the day of the week you make your booking. I set up a spreadsheet and that can show me the trends. Also check out alternative airports too....for example it's cheaper to fly into Houston than Austin from the UK but the distance is easily manageable. The golden rule is not to leave it too long....keep an eye on the trend but of course the closer it gets to race time then the prices start creeping up and they're very unlikely to come down from that points.

All these aspects have allowed me to travel and enjoy F1 in quite a few places and will continue to do so although I do only have one further current planned trip after Montreal (Singapore in September) as we've got some home improvement projects to fund later this year.

For now.....bring on Montreal and a good race. :good:

Many people can look at this picture and not spot the obvious, can you?
