  1. Lol - and with the price of petrol, it'd double the price you paid for the ticket too! I know what you're saying about Silverstone, but as I said, they are meant to be building a new pit & paddock complex and have planning already approved (something that Donington, worryingly, does not) - whether or not they bother if they're not going to be hosting the GP is anyone's guess though. But the point is that that would fix the worst of the problems with Silverstone. If they then just spent a bit more on building some new (permanent!!) grandstands and paving over the grass banks (which I can
  2. Okay, I stand corrected on the circuit lengths, but I still think that there's no way Donington can play host to F1. I hear they've promised a £100million revamp for the track, but is that really feasible? Why not redo Silverstone, which would cost a fraction of the amount - and bear in mind that Silverstone already has planning permission for a new pit and paddock complex between the Club and Abbey corners, has all the space the teams need, and has the traffic and parking issues solved. I agree the BRDC have been a pain and have frequently promised upgrades that haven't appeared, but all
  3. Donington is just too small for F1 cars. I like the circuit and it's great for bikes and touring cars (which can handle a bit of contact when they try to overtake), but F1 cars simply won't have room to pass each other anywhere there, even with the Melbourne Loop section of the track. "Races" would be even more processional than Monaco or Hungary. The track is also too short (2.5 miles, inc Melbourne Loop - the only other F1 track shorter than 3 miles is Monaco) so a lap there is going to be very quick, meaning lots of issues with lapped traffic. The paddock at Donington (newly refurbished) is
  4. To make a more positive contribution to solving the global vodka surplus problem, which is becoming more critical than ever before...
  5. In no particular order: - Top Gear - Have I Got News For You - Spooks - 24
  6. Now you mention it, it could have been something like that... I wasn't really listening to be honest - I never bother once she starts talking!
  7. So is this what you meant by "with benefits"...? And you said it was special, not me... I thought it was all very run of the mill really, but there you go.... *ducks* EDIT: Thinking about it, if he's paying for a trip to Spa, can I come too...? Err... you are talking about the motor-racing circuit in Belgium, right...?
  8. Hang on, you're dating Rabbi now? What about me? I thought what we had was special?? [/trying to turn this into an "I'm Spartacus" thread]
  9. I can believe it's the most over-used word of the year, yeah!
  10. Ciao!!! (Let's see how many Eddie Izzard fans are here to understand that one...)
  11. I was playing with a 280-tonne one the other day. That had counterweights on separate lorries too. It was only lifting about 10 tonnes, but it was a very long radius!!
  12. I think we should all get to drive cranes around - then you can just pick up the traffic in front of you and move it out of your way! What size is that, Tinker? 50 tonne? 80? Somewhere there anyway, I presume, since it's on three axles...
  13. ... Err... Why am I being attributed to that post? I never said that - it was xG5kdo who said that in the post above mine...
  14. I didn't bother teaching you about football (the real kind - known to you as "soccer"), because it's a pointless game that should be left to the girls! Real men play rugby... There... That should be enough to light a pretty big fire!! Lol
  15. This weekend, I'll actually be driving a Ferrari 360... And last week, I drove an Aston Martin DB9... And sometime next year I have a voucher to use to spend a day driving a Ferrari F430, Porsche 911 Turbo, Subaru Impreza WRX, and Lotus Exige too... :D
