Greetings from a sunny but very windy Magnolls Farm, up in the hills above Blackburn Lancashire.

Good turnout despite a couple of (other) Weddings going on this weekend. Broadband access seems OK so we should be streaming live later this afternoon on www.hover-racing.org

As its the first racing event in the season we will drop the first race session in favour of more practise!
First race schould therefore be around 15.45pm but we should be covering practise live from around 1400

Good morning from a very sunny, but still windy Magnolls Farm, so we're busy tying the cameras down!. Practise has now finished. We'll go live around 11am with a paddock tour then racing should start at 1130am

trying to get it to run on my mobile phone. No luck so far. Any tips for nokia E71.
I have flash light installed.
Laptop gives a good impression of the events!
Some close-ups of the people working/flying would be nice in between races, while waiting for the action.

Hi just joined from the US, and heard you say racing is suspended for an hour due to winds. Too bad since I have to leave in an hour :(

Keith Oakley

Wind is gusting to 35mph so racing suspended for an hour in the hope it might drop -as forecast. Sorry about poor quality of sound on replay. Cameras are flying around we've got them all roped down to car tyres now but we lost paddock camera.

The sound is great !! I think I hear the pope in the dungeons from the Vatican!
:lol:
The back ground sounds like a choir in need of some guidance! Nice echo.
Thanks for turning the camera.

Sorry about the poor sound quality on the replay - its because I'm replaying the video on the same laptop thats doing the uplink the sound is very echoey. Theres a similar effect on video which is causing loss of sharpness
Racing abandoned for today should be live again from around 1100 am mon
