The stewards have dismissed Horners submission but Red Bull arent giving up . Submitting a petition for review on Friday.  ;D

Thereby proving everything that's wrong with F1 today. All because a driver made the mistake of trying to decide it on the track. ::)

Is the Omega master twin outlet or four,it its two then each outlet pumps to 2 wheels so I doubt master is at fault

It's a tandem cylinder so only 2 separate circuits. I can't remember if it has 2 or 4 outlets, but in the latter case each pair is fed from a single cylinder so most unlikely it's the master cylinder in my view.

I keep thinking TVR Cerbera as a practical replacement. :)

Do I need help?



Roof.....four seats......equals practical..... ::)

Build quality to rival your average amateur built Robin Hood.

Highly stressed engine designed by a couple of whippet-shaggers in a shed.

Sounds eminently sensible to me. ;D

He should have done what I did in similar circumstances. About to buy the first of only 2 new cars I have ever bought, always for cash (cheque), midway through demonstrating the details of the R16 I was buying, a lady came into the showroom of the small dealership. The salesman(?) receptionist, promptly deserted me to deal with her car to be serviced. He ran after me as I walked out almost pleading. Too late, bought it elsewhere for a bigger discount. I had a similar experience recently in a BMW dealership, ignored for too long by sales who didnít like the look of my overalls. One wonders what training these people get. The chances are the scruffier the punter, the more cash they have.

Yet when they're in the forecourt hastily trying to jump start the Jaguar you came to test drive they are all over you and can't offer you enough coffee. ;D

There is madness in the used car trade at the moment. :o

Did you replace her with anything, or are you waiting for prices to return to a more acceptable level?

He's still got the Signumb. Why would he possibly wish for anything more? ;)

And a piece of good news, I have found my wallet. In her handbag ;D
Found a colleague's wallet in the khahzee as I was locking up the office yesterday evening. I guess he's in for an economical weekend. ;D

Just watching this new bailiff thing on CH5. I'll tell yer what, they'd put Sherlock Holmes to shame.  He suspected someone was home, because there was a light on, and he further deduced that the car parked outside the house could be linked to the person inside the house, who was definitely in, because there was a light on.
Mind palace or what?  ;D

I'm guessing if he was a rocket scientist he wouldn't be going round chasing the dregs of society for a living. ;)

My wife finishes for the summer hols tomorrow. I have told her that shops seem to be the most dangerous places and it has been scientifically proven that more cases of covid are caught in shops  (esp clothes shops) than anywhere else.
Think it will work?  ;D

Jewellers. You didn't forget those, did you? ::)

The virus likes shiny things.

Meanwhile they were interviewing those who had spent the night clubbing along with thousands of others on the radio this morning. ::)

Hmm. Maybe TheBoy's much needed cull of the stupid is actually starting... ;)

The runout model would be a better buy than one of the first batch of new ones.

That applies to most cars as the bugs don't always get fixed before launching.

Indeed. Having to have the new model is best left to the "keep up with the Joneses" idiots.
Besides, the way cars are going these days, the new model is unlikely to be the better one.

Yep it was business as usual. Aerodynamic design means they cant really run close to each other in the fast parts - Perez tried and flew off the road.
And also running close overheats the tyres and destroys them.
These cars are blindingly fast, but they arent really racing cars.  :(

Indeed. Horses for courses. If they'd wanted an entertaining "sprint" they should have given the drivers Formula Ford single seaters or Caterham Sevens. ;D

My great grandmother baked the best cakes I've ever tasted.
She was practically blind, lived in a house with an outside loo, a well in the back yard, a coal fired rayburn in the kitchen and one bare bulb lighting the entire downstairs floor.
She didn't own a pair of scales, couldn't have read them if she did and judged the temperature of the oven by tapping the back of her hand on the oven door.

That's some present. 8)

If you were doing it any time around the 2nd to 4th July you probably flew over me as I was camping near Hastingleigh and saw several spitfire "sorties" heading to the coast and back. :y

I struggle to think of a coupe based on a large saloon / hatchback platform that doesn't look out of proportion, to be honest.
