Damn, it’s been a while since my last post. Time has just flown and I have been swamped by the concrete jungle’s undergrowth. But there has been highlights including attending my first F1 Grand Prix at Albert Park in Melbourne, Australia. What an event, easy access, great food, no liquor ban zones and no queues, except to get on transport at the end but hey we walked back to town. The best event I have ever attended and even the wife was pleasantly surprised with the day out in the sun to watch the rapid new F1 cars. They could be louder, as it would make them appear as quick as they are. But then again it does make it more family friendly – easier on the ears for the little petrolheads. The way they carry speed through corners is just mind bending. The season is shaping up as a classic with Vettel and Hamilton leading the charge to the championship.
The WRC has also been absolutely fantastic and the new era cars have continued to dish up the drama. Neuville looks like a genuine threat to Ogier for the championship. Meeke has the pace but mistakes have cost him dearly and his season is becoming one to forget, although there is still a long way to go. Ekstrom leads the World Rallycross championship in his Audi but the Volkswagen boys aren’t far behind with Kristoffersson winning the latest round in Belgium. This series is really growing and the platform is great entertainment. Hopefully, Loeb can turn up the wick and get back to winning ways.
That’s it for me for now and I’ll be making more effort to get race reports up, starting with the Portugal Rally this weekend. Until next time I’ll leave you with a link to Chris Harris driving the new Porsche GT3! Damn, I want one.
