    cheers @polishboy808. JPS with a modern twist was what i was going for. i agree that the ‘gold’ is a bit yellow, but its difficult to get the reflective gold looking good in the lighting conditions they’ve provided us with on the bodywork. i also wanted it to look punchy for the competition, as a lot of the entries so far make the gold a bit dull.

    Having said that, it’s worth remembering that some of the JPS liveries were actually fairly yellow rather than gold -

    by ‘right medium’ i assume you means it is in the novels, rather than the films. i’ve read all the flemings, and its not mentioned in any of the that i can recall.. so i’m thinking its probably in one by john gardner or raymond benson…

    Amherst Villiers? – “the dark grey 4 1/2 litre Bentley with the Amherst Villiers supercharger”? though i don’t know if he ever raced himself..

    ..or possibly Graham Hill – i know he was friends with Ian Fleming.

    i beleive its actually the ‘Skream Lets Get Ravey’ remix of that song. its a lot more stripped down musically until the dancey bit at the end.

    You can’t really call Kobayashi a true rookie though. 2 races in 2009. And even if you do, he’s made some clangers this season.

    It was quite superb and refreshing. As I said before in this thread – Brundle, Crofty, Davidson. Potential best commentator lineup ever? I can even forgive Davidson his occasional poor use of English.

    Finally Brundle has some people who can really discuss the technical details and the ‘art’ of racing with.

    @sbl on tour – i assure you they we’re not made up. i had a tally chart in front of me and just kept track while watching the race.

    i kept some stats on legard’s commentary for the brazilian race.

    21 – times a driver was referred to as going ‘up the hill’.

    16 – times a driver was referred to as going ‘down the straight’.

    6 – times that he quite clearly got the wrong driver/car/on track battle.

    1 – time he completely lost it and descended into a jibbering “nick-nico-ni-ka-ko” mess.

    Brundle, Crofty, Davidson. 3 in the box, just like Nascar. ’nuff said.

    just for the moment jenson does a superb outbraking-down-the-outside move on vettel only for the red bull to be magically replaced by kubicas renault which then squeezes button a hairs-breadth from the inside wall. great battle.
