Initial tests in France suggest the internet uplink at about 250kbits won't be as good as we're used to but we'll try to bring you coverage from the Dordogne this weekend on www.hover-racing.org (http://www.hover-racing.org) starting around 12 noon UK time.
PS its raining!

.....by the way, change of plan. Michele has decided he can race with a broken leg, so Con is now sharing klaus' craft. Klaus is apparently doing first race, so assume that means Con is doing 2nd race! I think that meands its the gold eurocraft.....

Hi Keith,
I'm surprised to see only 3 craft in FS. I thought it was only like that in the US!?

Hi Keith,

Just noticed something on the Laptimes from Rother. You just need to change the title to Rother 2011 instead of 2010.

Or am I a year ahead of my time??

thanks keith, all much appreicated...especially for telling me it wasn't him in the netting! I would have wondered for a lap or two!

Keith Oakley
4-Jun-11, 04:10 PM
To be fair it was a borrowed craft, and Klaus doesn't normally open the throttle that wide!
Hope you enjoyed it - should be live tomorrow about 12 noon UK time.

Nice to see that WHF supported FS formula with such an eccellent turnout. I'm sure that 2 on the grid will please all those German sponsors in 2012. Thrilling stuff.. not.

Greetings from a sunny Prudhomat. Several races being combined today - Fs with F2, FJ(1) with F50 but big open race at the end. Start scheduled for 1300 local (1200 UK) but we will see.... Conrad stopped by broken lift blades.
Wine was so good last night Anita has volunteered to run a camera up in a cherry picker.....
