I haven’t had any luck with finding a company that drops off and picks up, at least not one that doesn’t charge an arm and a leg. So like you, I’m investigating self-drive motorhomes now, and any recommendations would be handy

Your plan sound very similar to mine,have club tickets and plan on flying in to Birmingham and driving a motorhome to the circuit. A number of people have reccomended the woodlands campsite given its the closest location to the circuit, however any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Also can anyone recommend a motorhome rental company?
What do you think the local start time for next year’s edition of the Azerbaijan GP will be as it’s provisionally scheduled to take place in late-April rather than in June? The start time should be brought forward by an hour (2 hours would be even better) at the very least as the sunset times in Baku at that time of year occur at around 19:30…[Read more]

I’ve got Club Corner tickets and have booked cancellable accommodation just outside Milton Keynes but am now looking into motorhome hire to avoid getting snarled up in traffic each day. Some motorhome companies offer to drop off and pick up, so I’m investigating those, although driving shouldn’t be a problem.
So it’s a question of choosing a…[Read more]

JoeClark started the topic Car engine, on rare occasions, dies after coming off a full in the forum Off-topic 2 weeks, 4 days ago
This has happened to me maybe 6 times over the past 10 months and wonder what is happening.
Clearly something I could NOT expect service to figure out because it happens so rarely.
On more than one occasion, after coming to a full stop for a red light or stop sign, I hit the gas (leasurely, not WOT) and the engine dies. The left LCD says I…[Read more]
i want to share with you what will be in the next years a really big change (like from black and white to colours for the tv) in the simulation history.

After yesterday’s Grand Prix, my usual YouTube browsing brought me on to re-watching the controversial Rubens Barrichello overtake on Michael Schumacher at the 2010 Hungarian GP. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXjf5uxMOD0)
For years I’ve been of the opinion that this was dirty driving from Schumacher, but having watched the video above I think…[Read more]

The 2017 summer break will be upon is after today’s race.
Is this a time when you switch off from F1 completely? Or do you dig out favourite past races to rewatch?
Do you catch up with other racing series? Or just have a break from motor sport completely?
What are your plans for the summer break?

F1’s edit of the drivers press conference yesterday doesn’t exactly reflect the balance of debate on the subject of Halo. The positive comments from drivers were left in but the critical remarks from the likes of Nico Hulkenberg, Max Verstappen and Kevin Magnussen were edited out:

As long as it doesn’t obstruct other spectators you can chain your bike virtually where you want. I have done for 15 years. There’s a Forestry Commission track about half a mile outside Silverstone on the left side of the road towards Abthorpe. I parked there for years before starting to camp at Hamilton Fields where a bike is also quite handy.

Thanks. Camping does sound tempting but it’s been 50 years since I last slept in a tent and I’ve got used to my creature comforts, especially the use of a hairdryer :) My friend (similar age to me) is concerned about how convenient the conveniences are. Is it suitable for a couple of females who’re getting on a bit and who’re not very outdoorsy?
