Haha I dont even have the track, definitely giving this one a miss :P. Next week should be good, less bumpy track that I can get my teeth into for a change.
On a related note, when I looked near the end of last week I was 20th in the championship, looking good for my aim of top 25 :D
Here’s the championship table for the British skippy championship, looks like Blake is going to be my closest rival, although he’s out of dropped races already. http://www.irengland.webspace.virginmedia.com/britishskip_2011s2.htm7th June 2011, 17:00 at 5:00 pm #170813

It’s a perfectly reasonable question, as far as I know Sao Paulo is the only place where drivers need armed police to escort them to and from their hotel?4th June 2011, 12:42 at 12:42 pm #170718
I think it’s more likely to be sponsored by Air Asia if he takes over, but whatever.4th June 2011, 12:37 at 12:37 pm #170667
Not to mention you dont need to delve into their minds, just delve into the comments on the main site.3rd June 2011, 16:05 at 4:05 pm #170654
Thinking about it, the GP going to Bahrain might be a good thing in the long run, it means they have to open up somewhat to outsiders so we should be able to see for ourselves what is going on. Plus it will get a lot of media attention, which as usual fizzled away about a week after this all kicked off.
I’m not going to bother taking sides because as far as I can see they’re both as bad as each other. On the one hand you have a (semi-)violent uprising fueled by religious differences and regional power plays, on the other you have a government being heavy-handed in their crackdown of said uprising.
Anything that can shed some light on the whole situation and perhaps pursuade the government to release some political prisoners can only be a good thing, right?3rd June 2011, 13:29 at 1:29 pm #158600
Did some praccy yesterday, I see what you mean. I’m not having huge problems but when I do they’re pretty difficult to survive, like I said at Sebring I’m just turning in and hoping it understeers the right amount. Paddock hill is the worst place for that, one lap I turned in where I thought I normally did and ended up about 3 meters inside the apex ><. Best lap is a 1.20.8, I’m actually pretty consistent around that, unusually.2nd June 2011, 17:02 at 5:02 pm #158598
Ah I turned mics off while driving a long time ago, I find it really distracting when two people are arguing about an accident or something.
Haven’t started practicing at Brands yet, at least it’s a track I know reasonably well though. I can imagine Paddock hill and Dingle Dell are interesting in the SM. I wouldn’t worry too much about crashing, it’s a rare week that I manage to do a race distance in practice before the race, but it usually turns out ok :D.1st June 2011, 19:05 at 7:05 pm #170611
I suspect being an engine manufacturer helps, not sure who controls the decision although I would imagine it’s the FIA rather than Bernie.
I dont care so long as it has that meaty V8 rumble, best sound in the world.1st June 2011, 17:22 at 5:22 pm #158596
Got myself a thoroughly undeserved second place this week, qualified 8th!
Not sure if you noticed I was in a race with you (briefly) last week Joey, wish I hadn’t messed that one up since my next race had 3 of the top 5 in the championship in it, they left me for dead :(1st June 2011, 16:58 at 4:58 pm #169215

There are a few slow corners at Silverstone, mostly preceeding long straights too, like Vale, Village, The Loop, Brooklands and Luffield. I’d expect the EBD to be especially effective in Vale and Luffield. And that’s ignoring that they’re off throttle at some points through the fast corners, I’d imagine it makes a pretty huge difference to laptime.30th May 2011, 17:23 at 5:23 pm #169507
BBC commentators suggested he was in neutral, weird that the engine wasn’t revving though.30th May 2011, 16:04 at 4:04 pm #169469
“This argument keeps popping up. But I don’t see this “class” that’s being referred to. What class is it? Because it’s certainly, up to this year, not exciting racing.”
Correct, it isn’t the racing. Monaco is about the location and the atmosphere, obviously not something that conveys well on television.
