F1 on this day

Post by Jabberwocky »

as some of you know I have just started this page on facebook, so if anyone has any ideas of upcoming events then post them here. Also if I get some time I try to prep the events a day before hand.

For tomorrow I am wrestling with the idea of advertising the stupid act that Jimmy Jump did. which is fun as the last few days have been a bit of a downer Gille posts etc.

RIP Bruce McLaren. Hopefully the team he created can haul themselves back to the front, where they belong.
