Silverstone ‘94. Now there’s a something that evokes some serious memories.
1994 was, of course, the year Aerosmith’s classic video accompanying their song Crazy hit MTV’s screens. Its star was the ultimate object of teenaged lust and desire, Alicia Silverstone.
I have to confess the part of my home-recorded ‘best o…[Read more]

Like the Bookmaker’s, Hamilton Always Wins
“Gambling? It’s a mugs game, the bookmakers always win”. It’s a common statement and a common belief but one I will never subscribe to.
But, for one minute, let’s surmise those who preach such sermons – and invariably partake in the mass rip-off which is a Grand National fun bet and make a weekly…[Read more]

Very underwhelmed by today’s Racing Post Olympic Games treatment which is comparable to their Fish O’Mania coverage and as sizeable as their daily Tour de France reporting which, as we know, goes on for week after week after… Additionally the Games do not start tomorrow (only some obscure qualifiers) but on Saturday.

From Slumber to Sensation? A week in F1
I should think F1 circuit designer Hermann Tilke is having sleepless nights. He sold the Land of the Free and Home of Lawsuit an F1Grand Prix Circuit but delivered them an annual coma inducing spectacle of cars strung out like washing on a line.
From the moment it was turned into a display of military…[Read more]

F1 in Texas, not a mystery just coincidence
Last month, on receipt of my Abu Dhabi betting preview, a friend and associate sent me an email suggesting I should not “write down anything that is remotely, and I mean remotely, racist or misogynistic.”
I respect this guy a great deal, as does my wife, who is cur…[Read more]

The great thing with Sky Sports’ dedicated F1 channel is their reviews of seasons past. It is a stark reminder that not so very long ago motor racing was both fun and spectacular.
It was not a sterile demonstration of cardboard cut-out drivers at the wheel of spotlessly clean mobile advertising hoardings.
Drivers were allowed to make m…[Read more]
