Hi everyone. My name is Kévin and I live in South West of France at 30 km near Bordeaux (I hope that you know this city ! :tongue: ). I'm 17 years old and I'm a student.

My favourite motorsport is IndyCar and V8 Supercars. I like F1 too (I saw F1 since I have 5 or 6 years old :) ).
My favourite driver is Simona De Silvestro. And I like Mark Webber and Todd Kelly. ;)

(I hope that my english is not so bad. :oops: )

Hello Everyone :)

My name is David. I'm from Virginia in the no longer financially sound US of A.
I think I was here once before a long while ago but only kicked the tires and got lost before I was able to make it back :(
Well I hope to make a permanent stay this time round.

I'm a broke retail worker selling TVs at a major dept. store chain that no one seems to think sells TVs. I'm engaged and a diehard motorsport fan since early childhood.
I don't have as much to add as some round here but I do hope to be able to add something to the discussions here.

I watch as much current racing as I can, usually from my favorite aquatic themed secret racing torrent site, but nothing gets my blood pumping more than retro racing clips. I adore the mid to late 80s in both sports and open wheel racing. The cars were nuts to drive and the drivers were still characters themselves.

I love Ferrari, but my obsession with Group C sports cars has led me to fall in love with Porsche as well. Back in 2011 I am an Audi fan, just for the car.

Otherwise I love music of all kinds, and am in the process of collecting vinyl of all my favs along with vintage equipment to play them on.

Yeah, PolishHammer, we are not all stark staring lunatics. Only some of us. :dunno:

Anyway, enjoy your time here.... you will not find yourself the only member that loves the 80's stuff, so you are in god company.

Very true Paul. When I drove to Pocono last weekend I went past Bangor and Belfast. :haha:

Sadly I didn't get to see much of Richmond, it was a fleeting visit, spending most of my day at the airport. From what I did see it was a lovely area.
