Re: F1, Racism & BlackLivesMatter

This is now 90% politics and 10% race (if even that), when you start executing African Amercian police officers that served the community for over 40 years (just one of many African American Law Enforcement Officers that have been executed), or spray painting F Israel on the side of a Synagoge befor...

Ford vs Ferrari/ Le Mans 66

I just got home from seeing Ford vs Ferrari/ Le Mans 66 on opening night (in the US/ Colorado). I thought I might give a review to my fellow Planet F1 counterparts and Motorsports aficionados. There are a whole lot of mistakes and or omissions of the story we all know and love (and we will argue the...

Re: WHEELCHAIR ACCESS TO A FORMULA ONE RACE

COTA has to adhere to the Americans with Disability Act, and they are extremely stringent on having access as you describe, although I do not know for sure if they do have it. I would be shocked if they don't. And if they do not just threaten to call the A.D.A. And they will rectify the problem real...

Re: Indy500

Judging from the weather there will be no running today, that will make it even more interesting. If Alonso really wants to win Indy, he needs to call Roger Penske, the Andretti's do not have a very good track record at the Brickyard, something about a curse and all that.
