Photos From the Aintree Spring Sprint 2008

I’m not going to be challenging for anything much this year, but on April 26th I ambled along to the Aintree Spring Sprint and took some snaps. A selection of them are available here. Use them as you like, but don’t remove the tag. If you’d like to receive a higher quality image, just let […]

Aintree Spring Sprint 2008

Each year, Liverpool Motor Club holds three sprints at the classic Aintree circuit.  It’s a relaxed, sociable and efficient event. I always thought TVR’s finest moment was the Cerbera – a combination of classic low-rider looks, power, and noise.  Still handled badly, but that can largely be sorted out. It was great to see everyone […]

Stop Whinging and Learn to Drive

Sorry David Coulthard, but when I saw this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/7191512.stm I saw red.  I mean, apart from some of his astonishingly patronising comments directed towards younger drivers, he did nothing but confirm that his F1 career has been a long period of journeyman mistakes.

Aintree Sprint, 30th June 2007 – Rain again

If you’re in Britain you’ll already be aware that for the past few weeks we’ve been getting rain of near biblical proportions, with floods causing a lot of damage in the Midlands, and just a lot of heavy rain in the rest of the country. Aintree wasn’t much different, though not quite so bad as […]

Videos are back!

Ok, it’s supposed to be video of the week… yet since Christmas I’ve not been updating this section. My Bad! Now, I’m not about to go back to updating weekly. I’ve been busy, I’ve got trips planned, and it’s hard to update this section every single week unless some of you start sending me quality […]

What Happens at Your First Sprint or Hillclimb

The first event you ever do is a great experience. Don’t make yourself sick with worry, and ignore the people making fun of you and suggesting you’ll go out in a big ball of flames or similar! Accidents, in particular serious ones, are rare in sprints and hillclimbs, and if you take it easy while […]

Motorsport Video of the Week #2

Second in a series of humorous, interesting or scary motorsport videos I’ve found on the internet. All I’ll say is that trees are hard, but for at least one person involved in this crash it was probably a good thing. You can also view this clip on Google Videos.

Motorsport Video of the Week #1

Approximately every week I’m going to try and find a neat, interesting or just plain scary motorsport video and post it into this site. Some will be from Google and Youtube, and others will be sourced elsewhere. I’ll always give credit where due and if you ever find a video that shouldn’t be here please […]
