    1990s Schionning Growler build

    We used to say that large kitsets typically had 3 owners. 1. The guy that started the project but ran out of give a shit after a couple of years worth of weekends. 2. The guy that bought it cheap thinking that having most of the composite work done meant it was almost finished and there wasn't...

    ETNZ To Attempt Wind Powered Land Speed Word Record

    Or is it a way to validate sim data that falls outside testing restrictions...... With AC40 and hydrogen chase boat to validate hydrodynamic data and AC40 and Land yacht to validate aero-data it will be the most tested system out there. Yes some teams are drawing heavily on F1 tech. But their...

    ETNZ To Attempt Wind Powered Land Speed Word Record

    La Nina Summer. It is entirely possible that every time the lake is almost dry enough, a new wet front will come through.

    Meli references aside, did Farnham ever write any songs?

    John farnham not DTS

    The Whispering Jack tour was my first ever live music experience and your the voice used to be a karaoke favorite (after Elvis). Didn't even trying to stretch out the vibrato chorus though.

    a/c thermostats swing and delay settings ?

    All I want is someone to teach my wife what a thermostat is and that it doesn't need to be adjusted every 5 minutes.

    Ilott is a hard one, especially as Ferrari seem to have moved on from him. Why are they organizing test drives at Haas for Giovinazza who has had years to make his case in an F1 team?

    Herta is now officially off the table. Can anyone please explain why the F1 teams have such a hard on for him? Does he have a hot mum with beer flavored nipples or something? As far as I can tell the following Indy drivers could all start racing f1 next week if a team asked them too.... Will...

    Williams is the smart choice for DeVries. Lets him get back in the cue for Hamiliton's seat. Mercedes are far more likely to be racing for wins in 2-3 years than Alpine. AT are willing to release Gasly because they don't think he'll ever have Red Bull level skills and he doesn't bring much in...

    Leclerc basically needs Norris and Ricciardo to come close to repeating last year and hold Max up for more than a few laps. I don't think they've got near the speed to do it.

    F1 2022 - New Cars, Fresh Start

    Given Williams had by all reports agreed to replace Latifi with Piastri (possibly with some cash from Renault/ Alpine) they have clearly mentally moved on with regards to drivers. DeVries is in the process of making a good argument that the seat should be his. Alpine clearly still haven't...

    Only real question his his gearbox. Apparently they cracked the seals before practice 1 to fix something and then of course they lost most of P1 due to a gearbox issue. I hope for everyone at redbull's sake that the issue is sorted. Not sure I'd be leaving the track wearing a redbull uniform...

    Apparently Alpine have to pay out 500,000 GBP in fees and damages having taken this to "court". Really just throwing money away. I think the real thing all the teams are learning right now is get your contracts sorted.... Alpine out a bucket for Piastri's training, development and above fees...

    The most interesting thing with the Piastri announcement was how long ago the the contract was actually signed (3rd of June) so it predates Vettel's announcement by almost 2 months. The documents that have been published show that at that point in time Alpine had put a "plan" in front of him...

    Of course the other 'stralian on the side of all this is Doohan. I can't see Alpine giving Piastri the 2 practice sessions they still have outstanding which might mean Doohan gets at least one if not both. So who are we going to see at Alpine next year? Ricciardo Guanyu Schumacher Gasly Side...

    It’s official DR out Piastri in. Wonder if Ricciardo will be happy to sit on the payout of if he’s doing the ring around as we speak.
