@full-throttle-f1 *Oh, that kind of programme, nothing too special, then!* I’d like to do it.19th February 2015, 12:08 at 12:08 pm #292340
Better than any tilkedromes from the looks of it.
Was going to say it’s quite good but then realised that I thought that only because of how the Tilkedromes have been.17th February 2015, 10:30 at 10:30 am #29224715th February 2015, 15:04 at 3:04 pm #292180
@mathers So I’ve become the antagonist in the classic “A makes a joke on the WWW, B replies with a joke, and A apologises to B thinking B’s response was serious” story…… :(15th February 2015, 10:47 at 10:47 am #292172
@mathers Now I regret not trying half-decently hard at making my comment not look too serious. Sory
Ahen, anyway, yeah…..no winters over here.15th February 2015, 10:42 at 10:42 am #292170
@junior-pilot What does apeldoorn bellen mean in http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/groups/f1/forum/topic/f1-drivers-in-tv-ads/page/16/?bbp_reply_to=291855&_wpnonce=5fe8432c4f#new-post ?14th February 2015, 2:14 at 2:14 am #292149
@bradley13 @mathers You do realise that Winter is nonexistent nonsense in the East Indies (apart from places like Singaopore’s Snow City?), don’t you? (So the name “Winter Series” is a tad less than perfect here) :)
Though then again, I guess it’s the lack of winter that’s the reason for you to have come all the way here (well, sort of).7th February 2015, 15:14 at 3:14 pm #291869
For the good and for the bad, that car, folks, was probably faster than this year’s cars, nostalgia or otherwise.29th January 2015, 12:38 at 12:38 pm #291059
@f1fanf1fan And Red Bull would be….what? After all that’s happened to Team Enstone?
Just part of the silly season if you ask me.28th January 2015, 11:10 at 11:10 am #290961
Yeah, though I am a bit curious as to what “promotional partner” means, @keithcollantine .27th January 2015, 12:18 at 12:18 pm #290875
@barkun That’d mean that just like 2008, I’ll find it hard to tell a Force India from a McLaren!25th January 2015, 11:29 at 11:29 am #29079325th January 2015, 6:47 at 6:47 am #290789
@RoboCAT @bradley13 @diceman @bnm123 @JamieFranklinF1 @full-throttle-f1 @mathers @pezlo2013 @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 @sirspuddington @aiera-music @redmistA vintage race for FV drivers was planned for the first few days of the then new year at Brands Hatch. However, that hasn’t quite materialised because, as it turned out, the drivers already had the Morley Cup (played on the Dreamcast) scheduled for then. Because of that, things had to wait.
However, the drivers have now participated in a day-long free practice session. Unlike in F1FVGPC (and the upcoming FV), in free practices the organisers didn’t time the drivers. It was the drivers, or teams, who timed the laps with a stopwatch, some analog, some digital.
The organisers provided the engine blocks, which aren’t allowed to be changed, along with the rest of the .engine, which are. All the teams have invited their FV engine manufacturers to tune and modify the vintage race engines. GM, however, declined the invitation.
Because of that, for this event teams like Liverpool invited VW group instead, while VW gets some sponsorship for the arm from which mechanics were sent: Bugatti. Liverpool got to keep their Vauxhall sponsorship, though.
Downton, despite rumours of them using Vauxhall engines as well, seem to have invited neither VW nor GM to the event, which seems to indicate that those rumours were wrong.
AMR’s invitation to BMW, on the other hand, was accepted, and BMW’s mechanics could be seen in their garage. BMW were also given some ad space. (It later emerged that BMW actually requested the swansong appearance with AMR, not the other way around)
The organisers hope that the qualy and race can take place within a week or two, as between now and then the drivers still want to finish the Morley Cup.

- Christian Saward claims that VW paid ad space to Peugeot, leading to the otherwise wrong logo to be shown on Lucas’ cars.
- Franklin, Meteor, and Warrior have opted out of the event
- The race will be FV only.
