OK, who got up at 2am to watch qualifying? No, not me, I did watch the race at 6am though.

So here is how we scored in the league today;

Well done to today's top three - John S taking first place with 147 points, Simon 7 points back on 140, and Gary only one point further back on third with 139 points, tying with Ade and Stu - also on 139.

Up next, let's see how this affects the overall table.

Yep - like Chris already said;

Don't forget your predictions!

Now, as things stand at the moment, Saturday is cancelled. Well, at least everything in Suzuka...

Qualifying is now planned for 10am local time on Sunday morning - that's silly o'clock UK-time, or about 2am if I got my sums right. That is also the cutoff time for your predictions, at least according to the email we probably all got from fantasygp this afternoon. As I'll be up to watch the race at 6:10am I'll probably give quali a miss this time!

There was some talk about the possibility of FP2 times being used if qualifying was not able to be run on Sunday morning. I guess we'll have to wait and see!

I fly on Epsom Downs and the day after the Derby can be "interesting". These days the clean-up team are pretty quick and most things are cleared up before we start flying at noon. Get there early in the morning though and it's amazing the stuff people leave behind - gazebos, sofas, even old freezers!

But a year or two ago we turned up to find this parked right in line with our runway;

Apparently a technical failure had grounded it on Derby day and itr was a couple of days before it was taken away...

Seb cost me two predictions, I read McClaren will be merc powered next year ?

I had Seb for fastest lap - not on the podium though, so he possibly lost me one.

The Mercedes engine deal for McLaren is from 2021.

Once again, Ferrari today demonstrate their ability to claw defeat from the jaws of victory...face 20

That was quite a feat, wasn't it!

I've been used to seeing Vettel messing up this season, but this time it was the team and not him... Well, at least if you excuse his unwillingness to follow team orders!

...if/when we leave E.U will Chris be chucked out. wink

Nah... hopefully sanity will prevail, but even if we do leave I'll just declare Chris to be an "honourary Brit"!

Besides, Pete is resident 'en France', and I have half an idea that there are others in the league living beyond these shores. And why not!

After Russia the league table has three place-swaps;

Pos

13 -1 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 1841
14 +1 teewrex John Tee 1812
15 -1 AeroArrows Bondaero 1789

Chris remains in top place, but 2nd and 3rd swap hands with John S moving up and Ade moving down.

All then remains unchanged down to the bottom four. Here Stu moves up to 12th ahead of Simon, and John Tee's win today moves him up a place to 14th at the expense of Bondaero.

So September's manic 4-race spell is at an end, and next up is Japan in 2 weeks time, and early starts for both qualifying and the race.

29/09/2019 19:20:23

The chequered flag has just fallen on the race on channel4, so lets see who did what in our league today;

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 teewrex John Tee 172
2 Revers Racing Pete B 163
3 Pitts Specials john stones 160
4 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 159

12 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 120
13 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 94
14 AeroArrows Bondaero 91
15 Essex Racing Tony Clark 90

Top place today goes to John Tee with 172 points. Well done John!

Second today is Pete with 163 and John S is third on 160 points.

Well done to our top three today.

'Honourable mentions' can perhaps go to myself and Chris for being 1 point and 2 points respectively short of 3rd place.

Up next - how has that changed our league table?

27/09/2019 20:13:53

Right then... for the FOURTH time this month; smile d

Don't forget your predictions!

Russia this weekend and qualifying is at 1pm UK time with the race at 12:10.

Verstappen was fastest in FP2 after Leclerc headed FP1. Mercedes seem to be down-playing their chances for the remaining races. But what is the truth? I guess FP3 tomorrow may give a clue (or not!) and I'm really not too sure what I should predict.

Chris - hope you find some more wifi. And at least you got to your holiday destination, you'll get back one way or another! I know somebody who was due to depart on a Thomas Cook holiday 2 hours after the announcement. She's now in Birmingham rather than somewhere in the Med. crying 2

Anyway, predictions!

22/09/2019 20:51:00

A few changes today, so first let's see how the table looks tonight;

Pos Place gain/loss Team Manager Pts
1 - GASTON Formula Chris McG 2285
2 +2 PSS Power Flyer 2158
3 -1 Pitts Specials john stones 2156
4 -1 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 2150

10 -1 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 1825

12 -1 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 1747
13 - Torque of the devil Stu 1731
14 - AeroArrows Bondaero 1698
15 - teewrex John Tee 1640

So top place remains unchanged, but Ade's strong performance today moves him up 2 places to second. John S drops a place to third, but only 2 points behind Ade. Robin drops a place to third, but only 6 points behind John.

There's a couple of place swaps further down the table, Tony moves up a place to 9th, displacing Gary to 10th, and Charles (even with his lack of correct predictions!) moves up to 11th ahead of Simon.

So next weekend it's Russia. Can Ferrari make it 4 in a row?

22/09/2019 20:41:10

OK then, channel 4's coverage has reached the finishing line, so here are the results for our league today;

Pos Team Manager Pts

12 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 106
13 Pitts Specials john stones 90
14 Team Webby Racing Simon Webb 82
15 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 73

Top score today was 171 points from Tony. Second was Ade with 153 and only a single point back on 152 was Iqon in third today.

Well done to them!

Up next, how does this change the overall table...

22/09/2019 19:18:10

Yep - the race is on Channel 4 at the moment. I'll post the results on here later once their coverage is over.

20/09/2019 19:18:15

Friday evening, and time for the traditional reminder;

Don't forget your predictions!

The 3rd GP of September (have we ever had a calendar month with 4 before?) is in Singapore and Verstappen has headed-up P1 with Hamilton leading P2.

Qualifying is at 2pm UK time tomorrow with the race an hour early at 1:10pm. P3 is from 11-12 in case you wnat to change your predictions...

Thread: Autumn is here...you been flying ?
16/09/2019 00:32:55

Well if this weekend is meant to be Autumn, please let us have Autumn all year round!

Two great flying days at my club with probably the best turnout (on both days) that I've seen this year. Saturday was almost flat calm, sunny and warm. Sunday was a repeat but with a gentle breeze blowing - for the most part - straight down the strip.

One oddity we noted on Saturday, and the same again last weekend - flocks of Canada geese (in huge numbers) at around sunset flying in their usual V-formations. But rather than high in the sky where you normally see them, these were at times only just above head-height! I don't recall seeing that before - any ideas?

I went once after the move from hop farm and never since. With the lack of replies I wonder if others feel the same?

I went twice after the move from the Hop Farm, but the weather was poor on both occasions.

Having been to probably all but one of the Hop Farm shows they always seemed to manage to get good weather for that. And I attended the 2010(?) Hop Farm show as a helper for one of the display teams, so that plus the weather meant the Hop Farm was going to be a tough act to follow.

That meant the poor weather at Headcorn didn't exactly help my impression of the 'new' show. To be honest I'd forgotten it was even on last weekend (and it's a fairly local show for me) until a few club members on Sunday mentioned that they'd been on Saturday. They all enjoyed it, so I reckon I need to make an effort and get along there next year!

Geoff - mine's set to 6.5v.

I honestly don't recall if I changed it or if that is the default. It's never given me an alert whilst flying and I charge the tx 'every now and again' - usually when it gets down to about 2 bars. It's showing 6.8v and 2 bars right now after a couple of lengthy slope sessions and a few power-model sessions since last charged. I'll pop it on charge now!

Good race, nearly dideven better but got the first three - in the wrong orderface 22

I also got the first three - and in the wrong order. It's almost the only thing I did get (nearly) right!

But I enjoyed the race, Leclerc is certainly going to be a force to be reckoned with in the future, and I don't see Vettel hanging on much longer. I think he was lucky to get away with only the 10-second penalty that he got for his return to the track, and it was another unforced error that put him off the track in the first place...

08/09/2019 21:30:03

I thought it was you looking over my shoulder!

Whatever, we both clearly need to find somebody else's shoulder to look over... wink 2
