Virgin F1 !
 
I really hope Honda take Branson up on the offer to buy the team :)

If they need to sell up why are they hesitating ? I bet Virgin can make a real go of it and they have gone ahead with testing in Spain anyway.

I see Sir Richard wants to get Danika Patrick on board ad the first Woman F1 driver :thumbsup:

Oh my,

Back then it would have been ok!

But now there will be no end of " Do you want me to park that for you love"

How do I watch F1 in the US? I'm sick of watching cars go round and round on oval tracks :curse:

Speed Network (SpeedTV) carries F1. They use an international feed, and the broadcast crew is David Hobbs, Steve Matchett, and Bob Varsha.

We get Speed in Canadian is it the same one as America.

We watched the Gran Prix last summer over here and it was almost the same as watching it on ITV. :thumbsup:

Great coverage and gossip.

That sounds right... all I watch on Speed is F1. But they have to fill the rest of the schedule, so there's a lot of monster truckage.

Can't argue with the first bit.

It's too bad they've given up on NA again. But, the Montreal circuit is in terrible condition, and I don't think anyone up there wanted to spend what's necessary to repair it properly. Tobacco money is out...

In the US, clash of personalities: Tony George vs The Evil Dwarf... nobody wins.

Probably best to post it in a Football thread,
or a Queensland thread
or an Australia thread

or in a pinch, try a dozy bugger thread.

Re: Thanx Manc
 
:confused:Don't know about the dozy bugger bit but i'll have a look at the other.
