Awesome score, Ade. Congrats.

Did you paint your octopi in Skyhawk Gold as well now? ... surprise

A foreseen mid-field score for me as 2 of my drivers were DNF... and my predictions only medium-good.

Iqon > octopi only work with Ade... you'd better have some elephants... I have two 'pink Dumbos' and they perform an acceptable job (so far)... cool



The octopi are masters of colour!! And as for Skyhawk gold.......wait til you see the 2020 PSS mass build......

I've been following the intros of the PSS Mass Build so far, Ade.

So, I'm convinced of your 'gold' for the scheme of the Canadian 'Golden Hawks'... wink

A while ago, I was hesitating to be part of the F-86 build as well - just being a great 'planking' exercise - but I still have to complete my Vicomte build first. angel

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...

What a great race. I’ll hold my tongue because I suppose the highlights have not been shown yet. Just about all my predictions were wrong, ho hum...

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

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

Pos Team Manager Pts
1 Essex Racing Tony Clark 171
2 PSS Power Flyer 153
3 iqon racing iqon 152
4 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 138
5 GASTON Formula Chris McG 133
6 Torque of the devil Stu 132
7 Revers Racing Pete B 128
8 Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 116
9 AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 112
10 teewrex John Tee 109
11 AeroArrows Bondaero 108
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...

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
5 - iqon racing iqon 2119
6 - Revers Racing Pete B 2069
7 - Norfolk Flyers Kevin Fairgrieve 1970
8 - AnyoneSeenBernie johnpflyrc 1909
9 +1 Essex Racing Tony Clark 1903
10 -1 Flying Eagles Gary Goodfellow 1825
11 +1 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 1802
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?

... Ade's 'octopi' seems to go on providing great results...

... even showing off their new 'gold' paint. yes

Good job, young man.

Well done Tony,

My, what a surprise. Looks like my 'octopi' have their midas touch!

And nice to see that I'm still leading young stu…….

Another difficult one to call next week.

... well done, Tony. Only about 20 points away from the worldwide top score. yes

Mixed feelings for Gaston Formula with lousy predictions totaling only 20 points and teammate Carlos S. totally out of luck for the third race in a row... ppfff.

Luckily the other members compensated to reach a 'medium low' chart result.

Not that sure the Russian race result will be better as we are leaving for two weeks tomorrow morning with a flight for Alcudia/ Mallorca.

Looking for a decent wifi will be the first priority upon arrival...



note for Ade > I've been registering with Phil C. to participate to the Sabre Mass Build... so, I'm afraid you will have me around for the next 8 months. Apologies in advance...

Good result indeed for Essex Racing but consistency is the key element missing from this seasons overall performance. Looking forward to Russia.

Hi to all,

I managed to find a fine working wifi and at least my basic predictions are made.

I 'll try to find some additional info after FP2...

Mallorca is great, temp around 27C, the white wine a lot cooler... but our main problem is that I choose to book our holiday with Neckermann which is connected\owned by ... Thomas Cook... and so our hotel as well...

Wait & sea (?)... but if I don't log in the next few weeks, we'll still be somewhere in the Baleares...

Good luck to all

Forget about the return flight and enjoy the holiday, Chris! I heard yesterday evening that 95% of the return flights have been on the same day as scheduled so shouldn't be a problemthumbs up

Meanwhile, young Charles is again showing the rest the way in FP1....dont know

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!

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?
