Live snatching of stranded race cars

I noticed that 750MC were happy to perform live snatches with telehandlers under double waved yellows, whereas MSVR would have released the safety car to recover those cars.

Thoughts?

Re: Placement of Go Pro Cameras

No particular restriction, except not on your helmet.

Depends what you want if for, you get most as a driver aid if you can see your steering action, but you can get interesting shots by mounting elsewhere.

Re: Cadwell Entry Fee

I believe that when you buy track time, as well as track time you are buying mopping up time to clear dead or stricken cars before the next session starts. Compared to the Trackday Trophy referenced above, they have the same or similar track time but less sessions, so less mop up sessions to pay for...

Where is it now? Formula Renault Swift FR94 - ex Matt Jones

From the Monoposto Facebook page:-

Matt Jones " I raced a formula Renault in the championship back in 2002, it was a swift fr94 and sold it to a guy in Coventry, it was silver with dental health stickers down the side, if anybody knows who has it and what it's doing, I'd love to know. Cheers"

Re: 1990 Libre? race at Pembrey

The reason I thought it may have been HSCC, is that 6m42 in there is a quick shot of someone studying an HSCC results sheet. It was added to Monoposto's Facebook page by Robert Allender. The Welsh Racing Drivers Association have been uploading a number of videos to their Youtube channel, including a...

Re: How fast is Formula E?

Last time British F3 went there was in 2014, and the quickest of a poor field managed a 1.24.3, so I'd expect a mid to high 1.23 possible.
