Err.... Thanks Mike but don't think so- not on this antiquated version at least. It's the 'o' with two dots above that I needed, anyway.

Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Mike I think I've got the name of the team the Italian miscreant messed up with. Are you sure the English driver could race or did he have to "explain" some details to the Carabinieri before in a safe room …

Something like that may be: Í or ÷ . Can help with the spelling but no idea on how to pronounce it (nor in English neither any other language).

Well, if you know who apprehended the low-life, keep it to yourself please!

How did you enjoy, Museo Storica Alfa Romeo, Mike?

It's somewhere I've long been intending to visit, & was already thinking of the idea of combining it with a trip to Monza next year - two places I've never been & want to visit.

I've heard stories in the past about a wonderful book/model shop within the circuit somewhere that was supposed to be worth a visit. No idea if it still exists though.

The Museo has some wonderful cars, and the layout is very simple. Not huge amount though. Each car has plenty of space until you get to the T33s and more modern racers, where they are lined up. There is a glass wall of models that I could have spent ages looking at, but it was getting late and I was 'hank marvin'

There is a model shop inside the circuit, next to the bar / cafe and clothing shops. I looked in but most of the stuff spotted was at 'the lower end' of the market. I didn't get a chance to investigate further.

Just walking through the trees and coming upon the old banking is worth a trip to Monza alone, regardless of anything else. Then trying to climb it....

Thanks for that, Mike. Maybe next year... as an Alfa owner for the past 36 years, it's something I really have to do. They do at least take their cars out & about. They had several at Techno Classica, & they had cars on Mille Miglia, Targa Florio etc.

I was told about the Monza shop by someone at Team Lotus who was also a serious book & model collector, but that was some years ago so it might well have changed by now!

Sounds like you might be a model collector too...?

Mike, we too found it nice to be parked next to you. No late-night partying and no disturbing snoring, at least not what we could hear (two weeks ago at a race at Karlskoga, we were both woken up by the snores from a camper parked next to ours). Finally got home at 9.40 PM on Tuesday, but lots of nail-bitin for the last 900 kms from northern Germany, since a warning light indicating a defect diesel injection system was on, and we clearly had a significant reduction in engine Power.

As for the pronounciation of the letter "Í", think of how you pronounce the English indefinite article "a" in its unaccented/unstressed form. That's about the same sound.

John Elwin - that must have been Mario Acquati's bookstore in one of the track shops. It was one of the best motoring bookstores in the world, but I understand it has had to close now.

Thank you for that Marcus. It was certainly a long time ago that I was told about it - thinking about it, it must have been about 1979!

I'll still try & get to Monza though.

You could try Google Translate ....

However, writing as someone with a mere few words of Italian that I might be able to call on in any way, the Google translation, though presented in clearly English words, was not a clear translation in my opinion.

I got the gist of a message ... in fact several gists of what might have been several messages ... but clear understanding seemed to have been avoided by the translation process.

If see mean you what I.

I don't think any of the on-line translation things are very good. I have used them on occasion.
