I'm a long time F1 fan, think it is an acquired taste in this country. Kinda miss Michael S., but Hamilton is fun to watch. What channel is it on, I haven't been payin enough attention, but things are kinda upside down this year, very cool!!!
btw, the Nascar Nationwide Series is in Canada, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, definately not an oval, but I like ovals too.
Will be interesting how many views and replies this thread gets.
You missed a heck of a race! I'm sure you've read about it by now. Kimi was awesome! Wonder who Ferrari will put in for Monza. I can't believe they will keep Badoer in the car.
Here's a pic of one piece of my Ferrari memoribilia. It's a pitlane suit from an electrical engineer, Tad Czapski, from around 2000. MS signed it. I built the mannequin for it out of PVC and cotton stuffing. The head is a styrofoam hairpiece holder. Sorry for the low quality. I took it with my phone. My digital camera battery is dead.
I personally have gotten Michael's autograph twice at the USGP. There's a great story to go along with the first one. I have paid for it two other times. One is the pit suit, the other is a numbered edition lithograph.
I always thought that the formula 1 cars were one tweak from exploding. It seems they are built as light as possible and stressed to the max and one more ounce of stress or a little bit applied in a bit of a different direction will have it just failing in an explosive way.
I am more for the heavy duty stuff. Baja, rock racing, anything that looks like it could hold it's own in a demolition derby.
Xela, you are a BIG F1 fan, I have watched F1 since Hobbs, Stewart and the rest from that era, didn't get much media coverage where I was then, only newsprint. I like to watch just about anything you can put an engine race, and just about anything else that can be raced. If you can think it up, someone is probably racin it somewhere!!
