I think any upgrades on B1 will be under the hood. I think the foil changes will wait till B2. I still expect to see hawk out and about testing more foil variations from time to time. But if today is anything to go by. They have got am B1 running really stable
look at their customers .. they have some very high profile and worth business'sthetruth said:Hmm sent them an email with no reply. If it wasn't them you would have thought they would make a press statement denying any involvement.....

or someone is leaking info about the state of ACE organisation, any studies done on the cost benefits of the current viability of the event (pre/post covid)This is odd, even by AC standards.
MBIE are the folks who pay the bills right? So it likely involves money. My wild guess is that someone has been meddling with accusations of dodgy dealings with the goal of either:
- reducing the funding available for the AC event; or
- reducing the funding available for ETNZ.
The Europe angle doesn't really add much clarity, as the info could have come back via LR (as COR) or Emirates (yes, despite the name the sponsorship money actually comes out of Europe).
Yes, Met them last year for something non-related, also no reply just yet.thetruth said:Anyone know Calder or Mayo? Sad to see HK getting fucked. Lots of drama to come out of there.......
I was surprised to hear Dalts say that the "informants" lawyered up pretty promptly when confronted, something which a "high-profile" contractor would be very savvy about. The motives for the allegations may well be that the contractor has not been allowed to do as they please - they couldn't go to ETNZ hierachy, so they tried to leverage their government contacts to go behind ETNZ's back directly to MBIE. This feels like some corporate greedy power grab for more say in ACE Ltd which has backfired..... If they are clean, this would not be helping the event so best to hold judgement.
