Well that describes the accident but the documentary was really about the politics behind the rise of the silver arrows, both Merc and AU.

Indeed, it was a very troubled time, although losing Rosemeyer was a massive shame and a tragedy.

I did enjoy that documentary, learnt a bit more about that time both in racing and the world and very interesting how the rivalry between Merc and Auto Union came to be.

Not good, after all we’ve been through, things are still being affected. Let’s hope Belgium sort things out soon, we can’t afford to lose more people and more time out of the year

We have been talking lately how quickly the year appears to be flashing past. We've not been able to do anything since the end of March, and now we find ourselves almost in August, but I think that is the problem. As we're not able to do anything (much) there's nothing to remember, nothing to make one weekend different to any other weekend, so the year is just whizzing past us without anyone noticing. Hopefully we will get a handle on things, and learn ways to return back to something similar to what we used to know as normal without increasing the risk of catching, or carrying & infecting someone else with this virus. I think that we are going to be dealing with the thing for quite some time yet, but hopefully we will sdo so in a successful way and come out of the other side unscathed. How does the phrase go, 'One day we will all look back at this and laugh'?

The theory is that years go by faster because each one becomes a lower percentage of your lifetime as you get older.

You're certainly right - it's going by very quickly. Things we did in January/February still seem quite fresh in the mind, then there's this great big vacuum of around two months about which I can't really remember anything very much.

We were on holiday last week, just a week on the Cote d'Opale, but that at least seemed very normal, with everywhere very busy, especially places like Le Touquet & Berck. The British, Dutch & Belgian tourists were back although perhaps not in their usual numbers yet.

Oh, I know that one Max, in fact I believe that I may have posted that very theory on his quite some time ago (although it seems just like yesterday) but we (a group of various ages, not just old duffers like me) were discussing this year since the end of March having flown by and we concluded that this was because we have nothing to mark the individual weeks with as we haven't done anything...

We're going to have to live with uncertainty and the inability to make concrete plans for some time to come.

Interesting. The kart track at Genk in Belgium have just posted that they are definitely going ahead.

Interesting, on several fronts. Any similarity to the documentary?
Whilst at Cambridge Motorsport, we had the transport side as well for race and classic cars. We were actually contracted by a German "firm" to transport six of Hitler personnel transport cars. Merc limos etc. All done under great security as the six cars had a then valuation of circa£27.5million.even had armed guards in convoy. Interesting transport opportunity. 😃
