Hi everyone, welcome to Friday.  We're in that mid-Kickstarter lull with just a wee bit of improvement in those numbers daily.  If you can help get that to 8,000--the sooner we hit the goal, the sooner we can start getting the factory to create a... (Read More)

Car attrition / Driver injury--the difference between the Golden Age and modern F1

September 3rd - via:
