    It was quite interesting as you say Brian. Not much wiggle room & they cram a lot of stuff in their. I'd have to go back to school just to learn how to operate the steering wheel controls Brian. To do so at the insane speeds they run at takes some talent to be sure.

    I simply could not control a car seated as they are either. Like sitting in your recliner at 200 mph.


    Good race yesterday at Montreal. Hamilton won.

    Supposed to hit 30C here today so Folding will take a hit as i shut down during the daytime. Too hot & humid for me.

    Have a great day my friend.

    Hi Dan

    I go way back & recall Colin Chapman of Lotus fame whose mantra was lightness wherever possible. His cars suffered at times from being too lightweight as parts gave out due to stresses encountered during races. He was a real pioneer in that regard and others soon followed as success came to him.

    Over the years with the advent of wind tunnel testing & computer designs as well as the in car use of computers themselves the cars of today are way out there in design and the drivers now drive flat out at all times as they are gauged by computers every second along the way. A delicate balance of car & driver like never before.

    The pressure these cars & drivers must endure is simply amazing. The rewards a great as well with riches one can only dream about and some of the worlds most beautiful women to play with.

    Have a terrific week Dan

    Hi Brian & Mark

    Found this on youtube. One of the greatest drivers of all time & one of my heroes along with Stirling Moss from days past. Jackie takes a fun lap in the 6 wheeler. Thought you might be interested.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L843q...eature=related

    Isn't it nice to be able to actually see the driver & also the simple gauges used then and having them shift for themselves. To me this was a much more enjoyable way to watch racing and the skill of the driver was paramount as apposed to today's computer controlled racing. I long for the old days in Formula1 & when they run what they brung in NASCAR when Ford was an actual Ford as where Chevy, Dodge and the like.

    Too much technology today and cookie cutter designs where the badge on the car is really meaningless.

    Getting old i guess.

    Jackie Stewart is a year older than i am Brian. I think i mentioned it before, my younger sister is principal at a very prestigious school in Geneva and a lot of celebrities kids go their.

    Jackie was a skeet shooting champion as well as a racer & my sister Lisa knowing my admiration for him snagged an autograph for me when he came to the school to give a speech to the kids. His son had attended some years prior.

    Quite a thrill for me.
