Re: Monoposto 2014

My apologies that trying to post from an ipad while in an airport coming back from holiday logging on to an unsecured router didn't allow me time to highlight the key passage before the wifi dropped. Now I'm on real computer I can, I hope it makes a little more sense/ adds to the clarity. Obviously,...

Re: Monoposto 2014

The following is posted by me ON BEHALF OF A LEADING COMPETITOR WHO IS NOT A MEMBER OF THE FORUM Gentlemen I have read the relevent posts on this thread and feel the need to point out some basic facts to quell your concerns. This new rule has been instigated as a measure that can be implemented to s...

Re: Aerobatic flight for charity!

I don't think the link works, at least it doesn't for me, it just goes to my own Facebook events list.

I love planes but won't be bidding as aerobatics (glider my only experience) bring on a practical demonstration of stomach fluid dynamics.

Re: Colin Thorpe

I remember first meeting Colin 2 years ago at Anglesey. He roundly abused me for parking in his patch. I quickly came to realise that under the gruff exterior was a very kind and genuine man with a huge practical knowledge. We had an electrical problem and there was no way Colin was going to let us ...

Re: Bahrain

isnt 77% a majority? Yes, that isn't the problem. It's the line about "Bahrain is a democracy". If a US based human rights organisation isn't an irony overload, have a look at http://www.freedomhouse.org/article/reformsf1rst-campaign-calls-formula-one-drivers-raise-awareness-about-rights-abuses-bah...

Re: Bahrain

I confess to having listened to 5 Live and got what I deserved when Vettel won. I should have protested and not listened. If you want to have a mixture of outrage, shock, disbelief and black humour, download the 5Live Chequered Flag GP Preview where they interview one of the organisers. When asked a...

Joining the forum

Unfortunately it isn't as easy as we would hope to join the forum because there are a large number of "not nice" people out on the internet who use "bot" programs to register on forums (fora?). Obviously, it's practically impossible to find a genuine one amongst the masses of spam, so if you want to...

THE FORUM

The more observant amongst the forumites will have noticed that the class forums have been moved to an archive area. This is because the class forums were only lightly used and it's easier to post in Paddock Chatter than decide where you should post. It's also got the advantage that not everybody re...

Oh, and yes, I know the previous is a P51D. Had the opportunity to fly in one in NZ for £600 and passed it up. It's my thrid biggest regret in life.
