Ah, but have you driven a racing car round a velodrome?

I went to an Audi press event at a velodrome in Berlin twenty years ago when Laurent Aiello (iirc) whirled their first Le Mans car around.

Do you or anyone else remember the Mk1 Cortina debut press event when it/they were driven down the Olympic Bobsleigh run at Cortina? Think by Graham Hill or another famous racer? Doubt if anything modern would fit nowadays!

Right Midget, there is pedaling andÖ pedaling!
May be twenty or more years ago, it was "ŗ la mode" to spend the winter time with racing using patinoires - skating ring - in course poursuite - only two cars in a row-. One of the best was JP Beltoise, using a Fiat 500. Of course, no spikes were allowed. Great fun.

Not actually the press launch but a 1964 end-of-season 'jolly' in which various drivers took part, including Jim Clark, who enjoyed it immensely!

But if that fails (editing the original did not seem to work for me - possibly the absent www?) go to Wikipedia and then cite note 1 where there is a link to this video.

Yeh, but youíre in French France.......

Still laughing about the indignation shown by many yesterday when the o2 network died. Yes, it effected a lot of business people, and I feel sorry for those that it cost money, but most of the indignation seemed to be over not being able to use Facebook or other soshul meedya....

I suspect that there might be a setting of some sort somewhere that may automatically apply the understanding that a www is required for a link in a given browser installation and so applies it behind the scenes but that may not always happen on a copy and paste basis in another browser.

The original link and the O/0 correction both sent me to Youtube and offered lots of videos (by some sort of category grouping) in which it though I might be interested. Just not the one you intended to share, John.

Might be a YouTube thing I suppose.

I agree it does seem odd.

Would it be reasonable to assume that the Body Panels on those cars might not have been in pristine condition by the end of the event?

Other than an outlet for being indignant is there any other real purpose for 90% of most people's usage of soshul meedja?
