Hi Keith & Anita,

pictures great (despite the weather!), but the sound is somewhat quiet, I've got my speakers up on full, and struggling to discern yours or Anitas words....I don't have great hearing, but if it can be improved your end.....course it might be my rubbish speakers too.....

Hi Anita

I can only just hear you. What happened to Rebecca and her time?

Thanks. Have a great time.

On holiday in Turkey, found a decent WIFI spot but only brought apple IOS devices so (unless anyone knows a way?) it looks like we'll miss all of the racing/time trials due to flash not being supported :(
Is there a live lap time feed anywhere?

I have posted a screen shot of the FS results on Facebook, if anyone can do the same with the F50 and F35 even better.....

Hi Keith and his team

We haven't been able to watch any of the time trials today (school gets in the way!) Do you know if there are any plans for the results to be published on the WHC website or elsewhere? We'd love to know how everyone is doing.

Will be watching avidly soon though.

Any chance you can boost sound levels? Previous UK event replays are coming through pc speakers clear enough, but todays sound is close to unintelligible. Tested on 2 laptops.

Thanks to all the Tech team

Keith Oakley
13-Sep-12, 02:37 PM
We seem to have an internet problem. Indications are that although we are transmitting ok to the server in London , the server is not distributing it out to you. I'm currently uploading to replay site in the hope you will be able to see it from there in about an hours time. F1 practise complete without incident. If you want to see results now click on laptimes button they should be available otherwise wait for replay

Hopefully the live feed is fixed so we will start coverage at 1300CET (1200UK). Practise has run a little late so racing is starting 15-30 mins late. Until then we will be running a video with various interviews of people in the paddock.

Racing has been suspended following a serious crash in the F2 race. Michael Feulner has apparently been seriously injured but as far as we know he is the only casualty.
We're currently running replay videos until racing restarts

We've just heard from the organisers that racing has been called for the day and a special WHF meeting has been called for this evening.
We are closing down our coverage for today. More news when we have it.

Hey Kieth,

could you possibly tell us what happened and which craft were involved?

Pass my thoughts onto the families, friends and team mates of those involved

Thanks

Wayne Hill is at the hospital with a shoulder injury but no other British drivers are apparently involved. A lot of stunned people sitting around in the sunshine at present.
Keith

Keith Oakley
14-Sep-12, 07:18 PM
You will have seen the announcement from WHF President Tony Drake on the other thread. Sorry I couldn't confirm it earlier but you'll understand there were a number of processes to go through. This is the first fatality involving multiple craft in a race that I can remember in 45 years in the sport and as you can imagine there is a great deal of sadness around here.

Wayne Hill has returned from hospital with I understand a dislocated shoulder.

As Tony has said the decision has been taken at all levels to continue with the championships on saturday and sunday.

Greetings from a somewhat subdued Worlds, but we are determined to go ahead and practise is already underway.

Our coverage will start with Junior timetrials which are now scheduled to start at 1230CET (1130 UK) Then theres a 30min paddock open then Racing starts with the sequence FJ, Fs, F50, F2 and F1.

We had a minutes silence this morning, which we may be able to replay, but there will also be a special cermony at the start of the first F2 race.

Just one question - whose craft is Jamie driving?

Nikki

Jamie decided to re-hull his craft in the week before he left. New hull, new skirt, no change to running gear.

15-Sep-12, 06:35 PM
We had a good safe days racing, with no red flags but still exciting stuff. I think thats done a lot to restore everyones confidence. Tonights big dinner and disco was cancelled as a mark of respect but the mood has lifted somewhat.

A full replay of todays videos is available on the replay site - www.raceresults.info/replay (http://www.raceresults.info/replay) Sorry about the delay. Because of technical faults the first FJ and Fs races are on separate pages and you'll find the video slider doesn't work on them plus sound is poor. F50 onwards should be fine. -enjoy

Join us again for the final days racing tomorrow from 1300CET (1200UK)

To everyone involved in every level of the broadcast

Thank you very much for your excellent coverage of the top quality racing over the past few days. You have kept so many of us (who wanted to be there but were unable) in touch with the racing. The whole broadcast has been very professional.

Thank you also to the officials, marshals etc etc who worked tirelessly in some extremely difficult circumstances.

And of course congratulations to all our new champions!
