    It must come as a surprise to a numpty like you that someone would have PDI facts in his head... if you have the facts use the facts, if you have the law use the law, if you have neither..use bullshit and bluster...

    clean doing his bully boy bullshitter trump impression again.. I didn’t need to do research because it was in my head and I didn’t reference diesels...but a little research shows the first PDI(petrol direct injection system) was introduced in Germany in 1925.. Bosch produced a mechanical PDI system in the 50s which was used by Mercedes in its F1 and sports racing cars.. there is very little in F1 that wasn’t first used in Auto, Aviation or Aerospace industries..

    Disc brakes were invented in the early 1900s, and we’re first used successfully on Jaguar sports racing cars steel brakes? anti lock brakes are a road car design, I don’t think they have ever been legal in F1 direct fuel injection invented in the 20’s.first use in F1 in a Mercedes sports racing car.. carbon tub came from aero space. paddle shifters ..John Barnard F1 active suspension..AP we’re developing for road cars but gave up and gave it to Patrick Head.. kers and regen..developed for road cars and we’re banned in F1 for a while..

    Maybe because he’s won enough races and championships, he has a family he doesn’t see enough because he spends twenty weekends away from them, has other opportunities as an entrepreneur, and he’d still be a major shareholder...

    2020 Hook Race

    You’ve got the wrong guy, I’ve never driven by MMYC on the way back from the Mac and it’s been years since I’ve been in Door County..As for being a Fauchi (Fauci)Wannabe, I would obviously listen to a respected scientist than trump or you. I don’t live in Chicago or Illinois, and although I turned down a place on a boat doing the Hook, I’m not scared, I just believe in being responsible for the safety of my family and friends... That being said..have fun and sail safe..

    2020 Hook Race

    I’m guessing you believe Trump is doing a great job on the C19 hoax and Dr Fauci is selling us a load of bollocks. Fingers crossed then that no one gets it because most of you won’t be arsed to wear a mask and keep 6’ apart for 24hrs... have fun...sail safe...

    You missed a good race just like you missed a good one a week earlier, why even bother to write here about them if you don’t fucking watch them.. I love MotoGP...but just like Hamilton, Marc Marquez has won about 70% of the races for the last six years, and it was Rossi for years before that..it doesn’t make it boring... if you want to watch really exciting races try World of Outlaws or American Flat Track...

    Michigan City had their second Cruiser Class race on Saturday, the Commodores Cup where you must have a lady skipper on the helm with a rating bonus for kids on board. On a gorgeous day we had 17 boats come out to have fun, even in a dying breeze everyone finished, and many stayed out for social distance swimming and cocktails..

    Chicago Area III

    Michigan City had their first of the season Cruiser Class race three weeks ago, 12 boats came out to race, two who had never raced before, zoom skippers meeting, temp marks, reachy race and everyone had fun, results when they got back to the slip and a zoom rum and tonic party. We had to cancel our Fri evening Summer Solstice race when storms rolled thru, but we are expecting a big turnout for Saturdays Lady Skipper Race...boats will come out to race if you make it fun, and have a ‘don’t be a dick’ rule.. Of course it’s not real racing’ like you guys do in Chi Town...

    Looks like RYC have done a backdoor deal with the Marina and the bars...what could go wrong?..

    Any one who looks at this and can’t see why MMYC wants no part in a thousand sailors arriving at their docks from Chi, Mwk and Racine, places with high and still rising C19 numbers is not thinking clearly..I would expect that the majority of those organizing the finish and onshore activities are in the most vulnerable age groups too.. How could you get on a boat with 6-15 others with no way of knowing if one of them is positive for the virus? There is no way to socially distance nor are you gonna keep a mask on for an overnite, there’s also contact risk from the galley, heads, bunks, wheel, winch handles etc...

    It must have taken mega foresight on your part to have called the cancellation Of the Mac in the middle of a pandemic that hasn’t yet gone away... give yourself a self a well deserved pat on the back...
