Another brilliant Robin Gibb number!
One of my favourite Robin Gibb and Bee Gees masterclass performances.
Robin, your voice will always be ringing in our ears
That’s absolutely true, F1Yankee. I’ve watched their 1997 comeback tour video again and again. Listening to it just make your mind light. It’s a strange feeling of nostalgia and aesthetic pleasure. There are few things that attract me apart from following motor racing, and the Bee Gees are certainly one of them.
It will be freezing to the bone in New Delhi at that time of the year!
Anyway, I loved the GT1 championship in its first year thanks to those exotic models such as Lamborghini Murcielago, Ford GT, Nissan GT-R, Maserati MC12, etc. I haven’t been following it after that. I read somewhere that the series will now only be open to GT2 cars? I hope the series succeeds but I like to see more Lambos, Fords, Nissans and even some American muscle cars such as the Camaro and Mustang in a championship together. I’m tired of seeing the Porsche 911 GT3 RS silhouette every other time.
In fact the Italian Superstars championship really caught my attention because of the wide range of machinery being raced including a big Chrysler. Don’t know how the series is now.
I’m really sorry mate – I didn’t check this post till today when I saw the detailed explanation you’ve given. Thanks a lot – it really cleared my doubts. I am of the opinion that the Dakar is one of the few remnants of real, raw motorsports but I’m absolutely not comfortable with these French people running the entire. This isn’t the only Dakar when some partiality is being shown. Isn’t there anyone to bring the ASO to question some of their decisions?
@Fer No.65, @Ned Flanders, and other, check the link above.
I should have seen this post earlier. Drawing is one of my passions though I have not quite excelled in it yet. Please check these guys:
Thanks for the videos. Yes, his frankness is something we don’t find often in this modern world of corporate diplomacy. Minis are for girls and the girls are non other than Stephane Peterhansel, Nani Roma and the ASO stewards (if Gordon is truly innocent) who whined over what seems to be, to me, discontent over seeing a non-European manufacturer and team winning.
But I could be wrong. I’m not an automobile engineer (I wish I were) or I could have understood what the problem actually is. It seems very complicated. Could anyone tell me in detail what the issue really is?
Interesting! It’s a case of “to be or not to be.” Is he really capable of doing anything to win? In today’s 26 Min Dakar broadcast, Peterhansel and Roma were really angry and seemed convinced Gordon has done something. Seems like stewards, penalties and appeals to the FIA are restricted not only to Formula 1!
CNN really needs to work on getting the names right – “Bobby Gordon,” “Mark Como”
Thank you for the great links. Out here in India trucks are perceived as nothing more than goods carriers. But the “raw” feel they have is truly one of a kind. We don’t have foreign brands such as Iveco, MAN or Tatra here.
I do agree that bikes are too dangerous. Was really horrified to see Quinn Cody’s crash on the Honda on Stage 2.
Thanks for the links mate. At least the Hummer is allowed to run, so there will be some excitement anyway till the finish.
What do you make of Robby Gordon’s expulsion from the race? Is it time for controversy theories?
“Anyone interested in the truck race?” You bet!
Thanks for the links, mate. I wanted Loprais to win. He was good last year too but I think he retired with some mechanical issue. And now he’s out again due to some silly error by his co-pilot. Loprais was frank in the interview, squarely attacking him. But you’ve got to feel for these folks. After a long stage they sure get tired, but now it’s taken away the nail biting competition. But how much has Kamaz changed! Is it only the lack of experienced drivers such as Kabirov and Vladimir to blame?
Since you seem to be a truck guy mate (and I’m only getting into it), does the particular engine layout of the protruding bonnet on Loprais’ Tatra and De Rooy’s Iveco give them any advantage over the other ‘regular’ looking trucks?
I’d also like to know if you’re interested in the FIA Truck Racing championship (something like that is there in the FIA menu right?) If so, could you furnish me with some links to those machines?
