hrdc press day silverstone

Julius Thurgood launched his Historic Racing Drivers Club series with a Press day at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone. Judging from the response, the new, value for money series is off to a flying start. Report and images at www.retro-speed.co.uk.

That has to be one of the most confusing websites I've seen. Where exactly is the link to the report you mention?

in the middle of the front page there's NEWS in yellow; underneath there's a list, 3rd down is the one you want. Not much of a report though

Sorry if you find retro-speed confusing. We have been complimented on its ease of navigation which was a prime driver in its design. Re the report on HRDC what else should have been included? There were images, description and relevent web addresses. Regards Peter

there was nothing to attract new drivers despite the mildly sexist references and pic of the three ladies. Then again with a full grid announced maybe no need to publicise it at all, could have saved a bit of entry fee money.

Full grids speaks for itself, definitely the place to be this season and onwards, hopefully there'll be more good stuff to come as well.

As to the report, it doesn't actually tell anyone what cars are catered for. I guess it assumes everyone knows.

Its not exactly difficult to find out Peter, ask Julius and he'll post you details. THeres something quite nice about having something to hand to read and look at as well, he's even issued signed numbered regulations books . . . no excuse there.

I wasn't commenting on the availability of info.

I was commenting on the report which tells us nothing, other than there's racing for a bunch of old cars and there was a launch at Silverstone the other day.

Agreed. Way too busy & lots of small red, white or yellow writing on a black back ground is VERY poor. If you used (and paid for) a web designer, ask for your money back & then shoot him.

From one of my wife's Ergonomics references (she's a H & S Ergonomist & former Computer Programmer who specialises in Computer User Interfaces & Disabled "Access")

- An uncluttered website will reinforce an organisation's credibility.

- The fact that written information is harder to read on screen than on paper (25% more reading time) should be taken into account. Thus, the text should be sufficiently spaced out.

- The text should be structured by paragraphs and titles at different levels in order to facilitate reading.

- The different pieces of information must be organised by level of importance. The most important pieces of information must appear at the top of the page.

- In order to allow visitors to take in information more easily and, in some cases to pique curiosity, it is a good idea to segment information. In particular, segmenting information can be done by having a catchline and a hypertext link that leads to the rest of the article.

- Accessibility means the ability for a website to be accessed universally, i.e. by all types of users including partially sighted and visually handicapped people. A certain number of simple accessibility rules exist and should be followed so as to give access to the greatest number of people, independant of their software or hardware configuration or their handicap.

- Colours should be chosen so that colour blind people can correctly distinguish the colours.

- Their must be enough contrast between the background colour and the text so that partially sighted people can read it.

- Font size must be adaptable so that users can enlarge the font size if necessary.
In addition, the fonts used must not be so small that they tire readers' eyes or are illegible.
