  • 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.

    January 27, 2018, 08:17:01 PM

    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.

Headline kind of says it all.  I wonder if that will be the end of Kimi in F1, I do hope not though.

Read an article that McLaren are offering Daniel mega millions.
If you want to win that WC, then McLaren aren't the way to go.

Anyone heard this?

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is going to hold a USAC midget race. It will be on a dirt track to be installed inside Turn 3 of the oval. The will be held as part of the Brickyard 400 week-end.

NASCAR has been cratering in recent years. The Brickyard, always one of the biggest NASCAR Cup races, has struggled to pull in 50,000 people. The series has reportedly reduced the price of its title sponsorship from $80 million to $20 million. (Less than IndyCar's $30 million)

“For the last several years we haven’t had a direct connection to short tracks and this certainly gives short track fans a reason to come to the Speedway,” said IMS president Doug Boles.

“We’ve got to make the Brickyard more than stock cars at the moment and we think this is something people will enjoy.”

The Speedway set up a dirt track back in 2016 in honor of Tony Stewart's retirement.

Comments by Cyril Abiteboul in a piece on Grandprix247.com suggest to me there may be more to the continued delaying on Red Bull's part than plain indecision about which supplier to use - surely not. :swoon: 

In the wake of a silly deadline spat between the two outfits, Renault finally got their way with an early call by their colleagues as Abiteboul highlighted, “It was making our life difficult with the supply chain and the development of parts for next year, plus there is also some sensitivity related to intellectual property (IP).”

“It was always our baseline assumption that they would be switching to another engine supplier for next year and we were becoming more and more concerned about IP. It was important for us to get clarity of their plans for next year so we could take appropriate measures.”

“Equally if they were not going somewhere else, we could slightly change the way we were working together both for the remainder of this season and the preparation of next season.”

“So there were a number of factors that were requiring some clarity and if anything I could like to thank them for appreciating that there was no point in delaying a decision,” concluded Abiteboul.
(Courtesy Grandprix247.com, 19th June).



Cyril also had this to say about agreements with RBR and McLaren from Singapore last year.

Abiteboul knew that the writing was on the wall for quite some time now, “Not surprised whatsoever, frankly, I think first we tend to forget this is a confirmation – it is more a status quo actually.”

“Last year in Singapore we announced a comprehensive set of agreements with both the Red Bull group and McLaren.”

“This was featuring a termination of Toro Rosso at the end of 2017 and termination of Red Bull at the end of 2018, even though Red Bull had requested to be a bit more vague about that topic.

“It is more that it went in a different direction when Red Bull requested to us an offer, as there was a bit of indecision about which way to go.”

“For us it is more a confirmation of what was in the air, and which is also a strategic and commercial decision more than purely a technical or sporting decision from Red Bull.”

Nevertheless, Abiteboul was big enough to understand the call from Red Bull’s perspective, “Just like when we returned to the sport as a works team, it was important for Red Bull to renew and get back to a position of being a works team.’

“And there are a number of things that we could not offer, like financial support, like access to core facilities, because our priority and focus is on the consolidation of the performance of Renault Sport F1.”
