Ah, it must be my turn to write a daily post again. Let's see if I can remember how to do this. We've had so many excellent daily posts this week that I don't want to let anyone down. However, as the F1 news drought continues, I have found some things for us to talk about:

  • Stuart has written a rather amusing post about his experience at Silverstone, as they launched their new and revised circuit. He was supposed to be able to get a run out on track but sadly some engine troubles meant that couldn't happen. The best part is DC's take on the engine issues. No wonder he never made it to the top!
  • Lou has completed her A Level textiles work, and whilst I don't really know what that means academically, I know that it looks pretty cool. Fancy being able to do F1 stuff for your coursework! It's very creative, and a great advert for Red Bull. Although, let's not talk about subliminal advertising again, eh?
  • At the time of writing, Mr C is busy watching IRL - honestly, I can't get that man away from the racing. He reckons that the Race Control feature is fabulous and F1 could take note from it, but the live timing is really on par with what we have for F1. What is it about live timing that is so difficult to get right? I have yet to see a system for any form of racing that really ticks all the boxes.

That should do it for now. We're going into a bank holiday weekend here in the UK, so I am more keen than ever to hear what kind of exciting things you have planned. I will see you in the comments.
