Hi, I'm New.

Hi everyone. Nice place you got here.

I'm an F1 fan. I've heard the first step is admitting it.

I was pretty immersed back in the late 80's, early 90's. Used to wake up at 6am Sunday morning to catch the races on ESPN with Bob Varsha and David Hobbs.

I liked most of the drivers, especially Alain Prost (don't hold that against me). I especially liked the in-car camera footage, though I liked it better when the cam was mounted over the driver's shoulder, rather than the fish-eye lenses up top like they use now (and yes, I know they used to use the fish-eyes back in the old days too).

As F1 changed, and it got to be more about the technology than the drivers, I started to lose interest, and I missed pretty much the entire decade between 96 and 06.

Lately, I've been stumbling across some good on-board footage on Youtube, and I think I've fallen off the wagon. I've been reading Eurosport, checking race dates, and preparing my DVR recorder (no more waking up at the crack of dawn, HAH!). I've even got my wife talked into seeing a race in person, probably Montreal.

So here I am. :cheers:

Welcome aboard pal! Once I wrote a long post describing many of our regular members. Two months laters and I already feel too old for that and came to like most of them so much it would not be even funny to write that again :lol:

Grab a chair and start your ramblings! The 2007 F1 circus is just getting started!

Cheers to you! :cheers:

Hello there Mr Rumblestrip! It's a rough and tumble ship here but this is our humble, but hip, abode. If we mumble, rest assured it's only a blip: normally we, rather too raucously, grumble and quip to each other. Sure, some posters tend to fumble and slip but if you happily bumble and skip around long enough you'll learn from the jumble and drip, drip, drip of ideas here that the true masters you have on hand never tumble, crumble or trip.
