Terrible news re Nikki, although after his lung transplant last year his long-term prospects didn't look good. I liked his interviews where he always called a spade a spade and didn't mince his words. RIP to a very courageous and determined man.

Meanwhile, astute buying and selling earlier in the season has put some useful funds in the budget and now means that I have the driver I wanted from the start, so you guys up front - check your mirrors - I'm on my pteeth 2

I didn't see the post so cannot comment but I would say it's a matter of using your judgement.

If you wouldn't say it to a ten-year-old, the vicar when he comes to tea or HM The Queen then it probably isn't accepted here... well, along those lines anywaysmile

There's a specific thread for posting links to your Ebay items here, folks. We prefer you to use that rather than starting a new thread, ta.

My son ran into a situation lately that puzzled me. he has 2 twelve volt batts in series for 24 volts. I believe they are LiFE .

This was for a power drill. Not A/C related but I figured it is the same chemistry. Taking it off the charger, he separated the two 12 volt batts , and the one measured 35 volts! How can this be? What is going on here? Any thoughts out there?----------------Bob in Kansas

Hi Bob,

Just a thought but might it be worth starting a new thread to deal with this? It's a long way from

Well, yet another race where my inside info didn't help in the least. Great result, well done, John!thumbs up

After a weekend of BBQs and paella, I've now drifted off to a nice campsite deep in the Aragon countryside to do a bit of tidying and dhobi-ing before heading further west, With mains hook-up, I've been able to do a bit of editing of pics.

Bit of a mixed bag, we'll start with a relatively unusual engine fire in one of the F2 cars on the formation ;lap of the Sunday race:

Passing shots of Lewis, Seb, Charles and Max:





Finally, last safety car lap just before Lewis scampered off like a rocket to set fastest lap (another 210pts in the bag!smile p)

Your 1 to 3 prediction is spookily similar to mine, John..... then we have a difference of opinion lol


12/05/2019 11:36:42

Greetings from a very sunny Barca. I've been a bit lax on the pics so far but will get a few this afternoon. I sacked one team after quali, we'll see if I was right.

John shouldn't expect too much from my inside hasn't worked!

Good to know it's in a safe pair of hands, Trevor. I don't see any reason, if you wish, why you shouldn't carry on the build progress in this thread. I'm sure BEB would appreciate that and I've no doubt he will be keeping an eye on you - and possibly tut-tutting from time to

Nice one, Adethumbs up

I made some prediction changes just before quali and regretted them afterwards, although it didn't turn out quite as bad as I had expected. Gotta stick with my first instincts in future and have faith in the metaphorical pin in the monitor screensmile

There's a gang of four of us heading down the road to Barcelona in a fortnight, so I'd like to think a bit of on-the-spot knowledge will help, but somehow I doubt it!teeth 2

Well I got a reply, and a password change email.

It doesn't work.

I'm getting annoyed.

I think you'll have to persist with whatever email contact you've had with BMFA to resolve the issue, Stuart - more likely to get a result than asking here but let us know if they sort itthumbs up

Meanwhile, please stay on topic, folks - this isn't a thread about the history of the

If you edit and delete your sales listings as items are sold, Stearman65, that will save you the need to inform everyone each time, ta.
