So.... Weather forecast not exactly stunning, but Sunday showing dry so far! I'm departing for a channel port first thing in the morning, hoping (a) The motorways aren't ALL closed due to accidents, and (b) That the ferry companies catch up after their 'adverse weather' delays reported this afternoon / evening.

Honestly, IMO travelling anywhere in the UK nowadays is just plain hard work, but once I'm on foreign soil, the wind can howl again (looks certain), and the M'ways can all descend into chaos again (quite likely).... That is, until the week after, when I have to do it all again!

See some of you at Spa.

Wriggley Monkey should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
When I went to SPA in the Summer they had changed the connectors for the pit feed to TV screens and I could not get the TV to work.

However I have forgotten what type of connector I need - does anyone know what the relevant connector is ? - Old pits.

Thanks

Brian.

If I get a chance to look tomorrow I'll post a reply!

The trip to Dover this morning was (amazingly) as smooth as could be, but the French strike was delaying things other side of the channel, so ferries were running late! Then, when we docked, it took over 30 minutes to get the doors open so we could drive off..... Not sure if mechanical fault or the strike to blame. Got to Brussels, intending to stop for the night, looked at the forecast and jumped back in the truck. Now parked up inside the circuit, waiting for the gales and rain.

Hope anyone travelling tomorrow (Wednesday) doesn't get delayed because of the weather......

I think its about time someone did a live stream of SPa 6hr, I'd be happy if it was PPV

perhaps tenthers could walk around with gopros on baseball caps to pick up a bit of atmosphere off track as well.

You expect me look even more stoopid?

Regarding live streaming, would be great for those at the circuit as well. Needs a bold production company and they would need 'sponsors' to pay for it all!

Surely you'd need smell o vision to obtain the atmosphere of blocked drains?

I do miss the 6 hr but quite comfortable in semi retirement and flitting between Spain and the UK, both of my nephews will be there spectating/drinking beer/eating chips etc as they can't keep away.

Judging from some of the photos online today it look's like they've had some rain there as well Iain. No surprise I suppose.

On this page Peter I think - scroll down to the 15th and click on live timing - seems to refresh every 10 seconds or so.

It states the 14th Sept on-screen initially but if you click Live Timing it appears to be correct (I think):

P.S. I already regret not going this year!
