I just wanted to let everyone know that I have been busy behind the scenes and have not contributed any blogs lately. The self-imposed break will last and few days longer. One of my British friends, known to many of you as Speedworx, has flown over to the States and we're gonna go to a Nascar race. Race 7 of the Chase for the Cup is at Talledega this weekend and we're loading up the RV and heading to the race.
I figure a change of scenery will do me good and we will have a great time. I haven't been to a Nascar race since 1991, and Speedworx has never been to the States.
In other news, we have been rebuilding our old forum, Wheelnuts, and it is back online, but rebadged as "The Forum of the Formula 1 Journal." It has little content on it now, mostly just archives from the past, but we intend to build it back up. One of our hopes is to attract American fans who may have been drawn into the sport by the attention the Austin race is generating. There is a link button at the top of the blog page. We have an association with "Friends of Formula 1 Austin, TX" facebook page. The forum has also added an Austin based moderator, Wood.
Next week things will get back to normal with the blog. There are two races to go before crowning the 2010 World Driver Campion and 5 drivers still could be within striking distance.
