  • I thought I would start this thread for members to add anything they think might help others beat the COVID-19 quarantine period. Please post videos, movie trailers, links to games etc.

    I'll start us off...

  • Good one, Wizzo! My all time favorite F1 car, and probably why I have a fondness for Zanvoort.  ;)

    I though we could use a laugh, so here's Jerry Reed. You might remember his a Cletus "The Snowman" from Smokey & The Bandit."

  • There is a new Fangio documentary on Netflix.  It's quite amazing (i've only watched the first half so far).

    There's a lot of interviews with who's who in F1.  A lot of the voices talk over footage of Fangio era racing, so it's fun to see if you can guess who's talking before they show up on screen.

  • My radio is primarily podcasts, and too many have nothing to cover other than the virus, so when I need to unplug I fire up Snap Judgement from WNYC Studios.  Very soothing and interesting stories.

    The Moth is another great series.

    Non-F1 podcast suggestions are welcome (kind of turned off F1 at the moment and besides most F1 podcasts are either too boring, too long or too repetitive).

  • Take a trip down memory lane with some pretty crazy ideas/innovations from the biggest brains of F1.

  • Thought I'd post this humorous tale about a young scientist with too much time on his hands due to lockdown.

    Be careful what you do out there.   ;)
