  • Ian: Wiz or Slugs, have we lost chatroom and who's online ?
    June 05, 2018, 09:19:29 AM
  • Calman: Mr Happy over here Wizzo, so it's all good,  Cheers!
    April 10, 2018, 02:17:21 AM
  • 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).
    April 08, 2018, 01:44:45 AM
  • 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.
    April 05, 2018, 06:34:01 AM
  • 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

    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.
    November 24, 2017, 07:55:09 AM
  • 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.

F1 finally returns to France this week-end at the Circuit Paul Ricard. The Le Castellet track was opened in 1970. It hosted F1 14 times between 1971 & 1990.

It was designed for use as a test track. That means it has paved runoff areas larger than several European countries.  ;)

Sadly, I won't be around much this week-end. I'll be at Amvets Ohio state convention.

F1 has posted a digital copy of the program for the race:

It looks like Spa-Francorchamps will stay in F1 for a while longer.  :yahoo:

The Wallonian regional government reportedly has signed an agreement to keep the Belgian Grand Prix at the historic track for at least another three years.

"It's a good deal which ensures that the region of Wallonia retains an event which contributes to the promotion the region on the world stage," Wallonia's vice president and economy minister Pierre-Yves Jeholet told L'Echo. "It's also a new era because it's the first time we're negotiating with the directors of Liberty Media.

"The proceeds for the Wallonian economy were EUR 20.5 million in 2017, an increase of 21 percent from 2016."

Charlie Whiting has looked into an automated checkered flag system.

"You could, and it would be quite straightforward for us, make the big black panel that you see show a checkered flag at the appropriate time. But if you're going to do it automatically, then you've got to think about exactly when you're going to do it, when you're going to activate it. It's not completely straightforward. It needs a little bit of thought."

He does mention that the flag stand sometimes gets too crowded. I think most of us have noticed that at times during the raced:

"We may need to look at other things, like the amount of people that get up there sometimes. That can be a little bit difficult."

I for one would hate to see the actual checkered flag be replaced by a video image. That said, for many years it was traditional to start an F1 race by waving the flag of the host country. That gave was to a lights system that is, truth be told, a much better way to start a race.

Seems Alonso is certain to be crowned king of La Sarthe unless
Toyota's usual jinx intervenes once again. 
The rules are rigged against other LMP1 runners,  |-(
here's how the BBC explains it :-

Toyota are effectively without direct opposition at Le Mans this year because they are the only team racing in the leading LMP1 hybrid class, following the withdrawal at the end of last season of champions Porsche.

The other LMP1 cars, which are not hybrids and are run by privateer teams, have a series of handicaps laid out in the rules.

They are not allowed to lap faster than the Toyotas, and if they do, they are called in to the pits for a drive-through penalty. Hybrids can do 11 laps between fuel stops and non-hybrids only 10 and hybrids have a minimum pit-stop time five seconds shorter than the non-hybrids.

That effectively means a Toyota will probably win unless both cars hit reliability problems, which are common in such a demanding and gruelling race.

Extracts, courtesy Andrew Benson, bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1, Today.


So much for Nando's comments, in last few days, on his joy of having deserved trophies rather than a bigger haul.  ::)
