Has anyone seen this? Came across it on social media… Some lovely shots
I’m going to my first GP this year at Spa,
can anyone kindly recommend decent accomodation that is near the track,preferably within one hour traveling distance.
I’ve also heard that the campsite close to the track is very good.
Yeah deck chairs are a must, know what corner you’re gonna try and get to, get in early and get a spot for the chairs. If you’re going to the toilet or to get some food make sure someone stays with the chairs to make sure no-one moves them.
For all first timers! Your not gonna be disappointed! Silverstone put on a great weekend! Some tips?
They allow you to take your own food and drink into circuit including alcohol! So stock up your cool box maybe put it on trolley! Just make sure you take cans as no glass allowed and bag searches are in force. Prices once in circuit ain’t all bad…[Read more]
Greetings! I would like to know if there is something official-like info about the points Indy500 places scored into the Formula One Championship between 1950-1960. According to a source that I trust (Grand Prix Guide 1950-2013 by Jacques Deschenaux), no points have been scored for the fastest lap, and only the driver scored the full points for…[Read more]
I’m going for the 1st time too, camping for 4nights with GA tickets any tips welcome. I was found to by some super cheap deck chairs as planning to abandon them if necessary to try got to the podium.
As Fernando Alonso embarks on an exciting challenge in the form of the Indy 500, it got me thinking about how F1 could adopt a similar approach of allowing guest drivers in for individual, one-off races. This might not be something everyone would like, but from my point of view it would add another layer of intrigue if some/most weekends we had a…[Read more]
How would you rank the 20 F1 drivers based on their *current* ability?
The build-up to the 2017 Indianapolis 500 is underway and the first official practice session is go (see video above).
Naturally there’s a lot of attention on Fernando Alonso’s addition to the entry list this year but he’s just one of 33 drivers in with a chance of winning. Here they all are:
My only advice from when I went in 2014 is to get there as early as possible, and know exactly where you want to be (if you’re not in the grandstand) as it fills up so quickly.
Again, if you’re not in the grandstand, then take a couple of seats, otherwise you may find yourself forking over nearly £80 for two chairs.
And finally, other than the…[Read more]
Hi me and the wife will be heading to the British Grand Prix this year for the first time.

Ludwig started the topic Improving sound of F1: why not put a cello in the exhaust instead of a trumpet? in the forum Formula One 1 week, 4 days ago
In 2014, Mercedes tried a trumpet to improve the exhaust note of the hybrid engines. This ad for the Queen Elisabeth Competition for Cello in Belgium shows a different approach to improving the sound of a Grand Prix:
Who’s excited for the Spanish GP and want a preview?

The new Mercedes graphics have caused a bit of a side-line debate about whether drivers can still be easily identified by their helmets.
In my opinion a lot of them are so over complicated in terms of colouring and lines/shapes that they’re not always easily distinguishable. I sometimes wonder if these designs are actually detrimental to their…[Read more]
