  1. Hi all, I'm looking for someone my uncle and I met at Brafield at the October shootout round - he came over to ask about our Dogue de Bordeaux/French Mastiff and was very knowledgeable on them, may have even been a breeder I can't remember, but I do remember he was from London/Surrey and had something to do with a pub in Twickenham as that is near where we live. Anyway if anyone knows someone who fits this description or he reads this himself, please PM me as he offered help and advice at the time and we would be very grateful to chat now. Hope the fact we met at Northampton Raceway qualifies this post
  2. Thanks for the results great to keep up with the shootout from Arena Essex and Foxhall today, Nathan Roberts won a 2L saloon race and Harry Steward won a Banger race (hope that qualifies this post as F1) !

    F1 on F1 !

    Upwards of £150 on race day for general entry. Arm and a leg for a seat ! Not too bad if you get a free hospitality ticket.which I did when Schumacher crashed at Silverstone. Only problem was we had main grandstand seats and only saw the cars wizz past at 200mph. The guy next to me phoned his wife to find out what happened as she was watching at home on TV. Still, the champagne was good. Give me short circuit racing any time, F1s F2s and loons. Very good point. I’ve been once to Silverstone and sat in the stand opposite the pits. It’s an awesome sight to see those cars going at such speeds and the noise is a big part of the spectacle but once they have turned the corner at the end of the home straight you can’t see them for another minute or so, totally ruining your chance of following the race. I have never appreciated the attraction of circuit racing for a spectator. Give me an oval any day. The exception to this being Brands Hatch, where I spent a blissful last Sunday afternoon in the Kent sunshine laying on the grass bank watching Caterham's MX-5's & Formula Ford, not quite Grand Prix racing but all for £16 on the gate and Jonathan Palmer even let me bring in my own packed lunch! Could see 95% of the track from the free Paddock Hill grandstand too Only downside being that annoying Midlands bloke on the PA Quite the contrary Dave! We were playing stock car bingo to see how many times you mentioned anything short oval related Richard John Neil and David Addison are great at taking any excuse to mention short oval too, always makes me smile

Oval any day
  5. My local track now Wimbo has closed but still find myself travelling to King's Lynn for BriSCA more than Aldershot for ninja karts and V8 stock cars... National saloons round there last year were great, better supported in the early year meeting than the later season one but they were cracking both times out so exciting prospect for F1 to come join us down sowf too! There is no banking down at the pits bend true but if you can get to the front near the catch fencing you can reach through and almost touch the cars. I'm often late so have to stand a few rows back, but always come prepared - a 7 rung stepladder (my "personal grandstand") does the trick!
  6. A very good Thunder 500 meeting. F1's always mega fast and spectacular there added with the fact they were rougher than usual last night = a cracking meeting, complimented by 3 no guts no glory style mini races (special mention to #1's last bender in the mini final, what a crunch!) and the Irish contingent battering the English in 3 interesting NHR races. The most professional promotion at the best looking track F1's look great sweeping under your nose if you stand on the wall at the exit of turn 4 too Hope Spedeworth don't get in trouble with the late finish, looking forward to Spedeweekend in 2 weeks and the biggie in September RR - 8 DD - 445

    Was there last night too as have been almost every Winter's Sunday for the past 44 years and was almost like they were hitting the famous 'corner exit post' for fun, just for old times sake! Skip to 17:45 and 21:00 minutes for two of the bigger postings. The 17:45 crash was hard (was standing right in front of it!), actually snapped a wire at the joint, as Stacy and others have said makes you wonder what the 1's and loons might do in just 20 days...
