Motor racing Grand Prix style.

It’s the start of the 2019 Grand Prix / GP motor racing season for both bikes and cars.

The motorcycles (normally) have 3 (televised) Grand Prix races at each venue, one for each of the formulae (the formulae being similar to the cars with Formula 1, Formula 2 etc).

Checking out the gap of the opening race at Qatar across the finish line between 1st and 2nd for each race makes for interesting reading, and exciting racing. Moto3 – 0.05sec, Moto2 – 0.03sec, MotoGP – 0.02sec.
If you don’t get BTSport, highlights appear to be shown on Quest, for the Qatar race it was the following day.

Its the turn of the four-wheelers on Sunday.

Enjoy...........

Find it, fix it, drive it.

Sun 21st April 2019

More4 08.55


As I quite like old British drag/sprint bikes, I thought I'd mention this prog.

There’s a chance to see a 500cc blown Triumph sprint / drag bike on the TV on Sunday (21st) morning starting at 08.55 on More4, so set up the Betamax if you want to record it. (ps it may well finish a couple minutes later than scheduled)

The programme takes an old 1960’s ambulance, then converts & paints it so it’ll haul the bike, in period style, to Elvington where the bike is run on the airfield (the bike part is predominantly the last 15 minutes ish).

Interesting to hear the comment/statement about Elvington as “ this is the Mecca mate, the birthplace of English land speed”.

Me thinks what happened at Blackpool, Brooklands and Saltburn/Southport in the early part of the 20th century just might question the birthplace thing.....................


I shall refrain from further comment  Roll Eyes

I watched "The Highway Men" last night on Netflix, (at Archie's house -I don't own a TV).
The story of Bonnie & Clyde's demise told from the lawmen's point of view & starring Kevin Costner & Woody Harrelson. Very good. Great scenes of depression era America, good portrayals of the 2 aging Texas Rangers tracking their foe across the country & lots of gorgeous 30s cars.

When I flew to Japan recently, I watched Green Book on the plane. The true story of an Italian American from the Bronx, hired to drive a black jazz pianist to a series of concerts across the Deep South in the 60s.
Again, beautiful footage of period America & a great story of the growing friendship between 2 completely different characters as they travel in a rented Cadillac.

Fantomworks a new series starts.

Thursday 16th May - 10pm

Quest


For those that haven’t seen it, its about an American company that takes classic/old cars and (usually) does a huge amount of work to make the car how the customer wants it, with no corner-cutting, and often a resume of coat of parts and labour.
