With a blank piece of paper I am restarting what I built, I suppose it's like the begining of a new racing season where the governing body changes the rules, where do you start ?
At present the new garage is being restocked with a better range of Supercars... so please stay tuned as normal services will resume. In just a short time all the top manufactures have upped the ante with the likes of the GT2, Superleggera, DBS and Scuderia to name but a few.
Change is good, it's part of our evolution or engine manufactures would still be using side valve and carburetters rather than devolping solenoids to replace camshafts. (Shame as I did enjoy many a cold night stripping, tinkering and rebuilding Amal's finest Monoblock). Even in the last two years of F1 the cars are lapping quicker whilst beigning laiden with more and more restrictions.
The Darwin theory of evolution gives us the chance to evolve, lightening the parts to make the frame more rigid, less mass will bring more efficientcy and less failure from wear, reducing drag will bring more speed, these are the rules we must all apply to have any chance of winning.
When I thought the British spirit of racing had disappeared I see that JCB rocked Bonneville Salt Flats with their 350 mph diesel and Nigel Macknight is attempting to bring back the World Water Speed Record by building a sophisticated canoe with a Bucanner engine strapped to it. We need more heros like these.
The Lure Of Speed is where it begins.
