  • Interests
    Family first and foremost, F1's, F2's, most types of Nascar racing, The Northern Dirt big block modifieds (USA-excellent entertainment and look awsome), the 'normal' dirt late models, most other sports but in diminishing importance.A bit of fishing if i get time.I like a good laugh (can't take anything to serious ( unless its on track)).there's probably more but i have a terrible memory.
  • Association with F1
    Fan since 1968ish,driver wannabe again
  • Association with F1 (longer)
    raced an F2 for a good few years,retired, spent more time than ever mechanicing for my mates, so thought i'd put the time into my own car again but an F1 this time, now i have even less time and loads less money.One of those "good idea at the time" things!!

  1. If folk want to hear what’s being said to the drivers, just buy a racecevier & a set of earphones, tune in & away you go!
  2. 1 OAP ticket has become available, I know it’s late but may be of use to somebody? Unfortunately it’s only available for pickup/collection in the Melton Mowbray area. Open to offers
  3. Have to agree with all the above, very interesting set of interviews, well done, looking forward to more in the future 👍🏼

    What now?

    I’d think large gatherings will be one of the last things reinstated, plus sadly it WON’T “be over” for any of us , high risk or not, only those that have been unfortunate to have had the illness & fortunately recovered & thus have some immunity (current thinking). All we’re (U.K. gov/British population) are doing/should be doing at present is trying to keep the numbers of critically ill below NHS critical care capacity until a vaccine is made, which again sadly is highly unlikely to be this year, fingers crossed I’m way out and we’ll be racing again before winter comes calling 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

  7. I’ve now found a radiator used on my F1, it was fine when I took it out, I’ve filled it up and no leaks showing, however I haven’t tested it pressurised, it’s a 6 core steel radiator, it measures 26” wide x 19” high x 3 1/2” thick. Again I can email pictures if required. Cheers Kev
