Like most red-blooded males, I'm a bit of a petrol-head.
Okay, I drive a 1991 Toyota ute and I seldom exceed the posted speed limits -- but I do enjoy watching others drive high-performance vehicles on race circuits and rally courses from the comfort of my sofa.
Formula 1, the Bathurst, WRC -- they're all great viewing, when I have the time.
Even the gokarts that race on a track beside my workshop are fun to watch and without the inherent limitations of a video link, I also enjoy the beautiful smell of castor oil (yes, some still use it) and hot rubber.
But how long does motor-racing have left before environmental concerns dramatically change its shape and form?
Yes, people have been complaining about the lack of forums for months now so I finally got off my chuff and finished the transition to the new server and the commissioning of the new forums.Unfortunately you will have to re-register, it just wasn't practical to transition the IDs from the old server -- although the old stuff will be maintained in a "read-only" capacity for some time to come.
So, if you want to "have your say" then register at the new forums using the magic word Aardvarkrox when asked for it.
Take a moment to introduce yourself to the rest of the Aardvark community and pretty shortly I'll be expanding the number of forums to encompass a number of areas that are regularly discussed on this site.
The contact form is not yet working (got to rejig the CGI scripts) but if anyone wants to email me they can send their communications to editor at this domain or PM me via the forums.
Oh yes, if anyone wants a bit of a plug then the sponsorship space is now up for grabs. Until someone is prepared to offer a donation for the use of this space, I'm happy to offer a free plug to anyone who wants to send me a suitable 150x150 graphic and link.
Sorry, the headlines haven't been updated today
