Today, here in NZ, is the 39th day in NZ without any community transmission, 18th day without any new C-19 cases, We have no current cases, only 22 people have died and we went to Level 1 at midnight which means we have no social distancing and life returns to near normal as our boarders remain closed.

Advantages of living in the middle of nowhere!  :tease:


I think it's more of a gov't enforcing it's guidelines unlike in the US
with our wonderful leader.

The Kiwi population have been pretty compliant so not much government enforcement here.

Interesting method of avoiding the social-distancing problems of loading a race car into, then out of, a lorry: Charles Leclerc drove the SF1000 from the factory to the track where it is to be tested... (He apologised for waking a few people up in the process).

Good stunt from Ferrari and good post Alia.  :good:

Reminiscent of Red Bull use of show cars.

Can't really have been his proper race car - ride height would surely make normal roads pretty tricky to navigate safely? :DntKnw:

I'd think the folks around Maranello would be used to sounds like that.  ;)

Ride height was raised to enable it to be driven on public roads. Which makes sense, as cars have to be wheeled through paddocks at the start and end of race weekends (to get into/out of the lorries), and they don't have to adhere to the tarmac smoothness regulations that track and pitlane do.
