  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • 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!

  • 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.

Good News for Our Fisi Fans

  • Good news for our many Fisichella fans. Fisi will return to the IMSA WeatherTech Championship starting with the nest race. Giuseppe Risi announced that his team, Risi Competizione, will return starting with the 27 August round at Virginia International Raceway.

    The Ferrari backed team sat out the last four rounds. They had suffered major shunt in each of the three races prior to that. It has taken them this long to recover from that streak.

    "We will back at Virginia International Raceway with our No. 62 Risi Competizione 488 Ferrari with Giancarlo Fisichella and Toni Vilander," Risi said in a press release. "We have taken a hiatus since the 24 Hours of Le Mans but now plan to complete the season at VIR, Laguna Seca and the season finale at Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta."

    The races may be live streamed world wide at

    “You can search the world over for the finer things, but you won't find a match for the American road and the creatures that live on it.”

  • Hurrah! At last!  :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    (It was originally to be a 3-race exit but there were problems getting everything sorted for the last race, hence it's taken 4 races).

    My Fisichella-orientated forum (here, for anyone curious) has been absolute tumbleweed since Risi paused their involvement. The situation has been ridiculous - Fisico is on a 5-race DNF streak* (across the three series he's done in that time), which is 9 if we are counting the withdrawals, and none of them have been his fault. And I finally met him after 5 years of trying to do so the race before that chain of non-finishes started, so was worried I'd jinxed him  :'(

    Fisico, please finish this race. By this point I don't even care what position...

    * - For those unaware, here is the DNF streak in all its "glory":

    IMSA Long Beach: Toni Vilander (Fisico's team-mate in IMSA) started, and collided with both Fords at the first corner. End of race.

    IMSA COTA: Fisico started, led his class for half a lap... ...and then was clouted by the #66 Ford. The Ford got the blame, neither got any further in the race, the Risi was a write-off and a heavily-damaged Corvette helped nobody's mood. Risi set the team to fixing the car and arranged a lease to cover Le Mans (and, it appears, covering for the original car until it was fixed).

    24 Hours of Le Mans: Pierre Kaffer (the driver Fisico and Toni Vilander teamed up with for this race) got struck by a clueless LMP2 car, writing off the leased chassis. The crash was bad enough that the entire front end was wiped off the leased car. Risi, now having no car and (for some reason) no insurance money to get yet another replacement, declared it would skip the next 3 races. You can't finish races you don't even start.

    - Blancpain 6 Hours of Paul Ricard: Engine failure in the 4th hour, while fighting for a podium position.

    - Blancpain 24 Hours of Spa: Marco Cioci (one of Fisico's team-mates) was clouted by a possibly-fatigued Raffaele Marciello on the 15th hour, while they were fighting for the lead. Raffaele was the most embarrassed podium-finisher I've ever seen in sportscars, Marco (and therefore Fisico) was out on the spot.
