Very disappointing to read that the 2008 British Touring Car finale can’t be held on the full length Brands Hatch circuit. Once again the noise restriction regulations are to blame – nearby home owners crying “Not In My Back Yard” prevent the circuit from being able to use the excellent Grand Prix loop for more […]
I watched the first round of the 2008 NASCAR season yesterday – the Daytona 500. I’m not a big fan of the style of racing but I’ve got a list as long as my arm of the things F1 can learn from NASCAR’s presentation.

Robert Kubica’s BMW seems to make an unusual sound under braking – are the team running a new system to aid the car under deceleration?
