Interesting reply,thanks Beaks..I am a banger man first and foremost.. from mid seventies onwards..and have seen the sport ebb and flow for good and bad but still survive as something promoters still want to put on...F1 has missed the boat hasn't it?.whether thats through it's structure and politics or its seemingly inability to control costs ,be it for driver or promoter,is something everyone has their opinion on but at the end of the day market forces will determine what happens...that's just the way of the world nowadays.

Genuine question....do Dutch F1 drivers get start money?...and how does their prize money compare with a normal brisca schedule?

Absolute respect for you and your work Nick..Cancer has touched my family too..both of my sisters managed to beat it and I'm sure that is due to the support that the charity provides along with its work into research.

Frankie and his family don't do things by halve's ....Phoebe will be a great flag bearer around the raceways I'm sure.

Best of luck with your efforts Nick...Onwards and upwards!

I've said this before and I'll say it again now...the continuance of start money is holding the sport back..sorry but there's no doubt about it in my mind.

 

As for costs how about the driver with 14 wings in his workshop?..madness that every time a driver does the meetings and jumps a grade he is lumbered with a £300 + bill...far easier just to play the grades..a coloured roof is just another historical throwback to times long gone (see start money).
