  1. Support Races??

    Do y'all think that's why F1 is not as big in the US as it is in Europe? Lack of education on the public's part and lack of PR from the FIA? How anyone can watch a bunch of stock cars turn left all day is beyond my scope of reason when compared to the sheer technical spectacle of F1.
  2. Support Races??

    I am as excited as a school girl here. Indy and Canada were just too far and too expensive for me to go. Historical F1 would be cool, I love the old cars. I like them probably more than the new cars. Formula 2000 is good. Thanks for the replies.
  3. Support Races??

    Now that it looks like I am getting a F1 race about an hour and a half from my house I can finally go to a Formula 1 race. I was wondering, how many support races are there on a typical Sunday?
  4. I was watching practice this morning and listening to the news on the FIA ruling when Bob Varsha made a comment. He said it is rumored and has been verified by a credible source that Alonso was going to blackmail Mclaren if the team didn't make him the primary driver. This kinda makes sense after last weeks "dissing" the crew after the race. Thoughts???
  5. Noob Senna Question......

    Take a pill NEIL.....
  6. Is This A Good Book....

    Huh???
  7. Is This A Good Book....

    ....for someone getting into F1 and interested in the Turbo Era???? Nothing can be too technical for me. Thanks......
  8. Noob Senna Question......

    I really like this board. Intellegent and not insulting to new people like myself. I'm glad I asked this question because I am learning a lot. Thanks guys....
  9. Noob Senna Question......

    THAT'S what I'm talking about. Thank you sir for a good read..... I bought the book recommended about Senna. Waiting on Amazon now.....
  10. Noob Senna Question......

    Sorry, I'm new here so y'all will have to get used to my eccentric sense of humor. I was in traffic and just so happened to have my camera with me when this car pulled in front of me. I thought it was funny....
  11. Noob Senna Question......

    Trust me, I know racers complain. Right now my favorites are Hamilton and Massa. In my opinion they are the example you gave of "shut up and let the driving speak." I was not at all picking on Senna. I am just very interested in the history of the sport right now. I will definately get the book mentioned above. I also have the book on the 2002 Ferrari F1 car. Excellent book. I'm finding myself being drawn to the "Turbo Era" cars. Is there an equal book explaining the build and performance of the turbo cars??? How about an affordable book on Fangio?? I looked on Amazon and there were books for $200USD. That's silly
  12. Noob Senna Question......

    This may have been asked before but, I'm new to F1 and I wish it hadn't taken so long. I've been reading on past drivers and have been trying to understand the big deal about Aryton Senna. It seems as if there were other drivers before and after him that were better. He also seemed to complain a lot when the outcome didn't go his way *Alonso*. Sorry if I step on any Senna fans toes because I know there are many. If someone could point me to some good reading on the man or give me a brief synopsis here would be cool. Thanks....
  13. Looking For Vintage Nurburgring Video ????

    I did that. All I come up with is the Yellowbird RUF Porsche and some VW Beetles doing rolls. I really want to see some F1 action....
  14. Maybe I don't know how to search. I'm looking for vintage F1 and/or sports car racing from the Nurburgring. Looking for videos from the 60's, 70's, and 80's
