Nine…the Hunt/lauda was not unique in F1. Other drivers had similar attitudes and experiences but there was also many really nice guys. I was fortunate to have worked within the F1 sport for a couple of years and travelled many circuits, sometimes pit side. I also co presented a presentation to the F1 drivers of the day in Geneva. Drivers like Stewart,Sippert, Hill,Rhindt,etc There was more actual racing then.24th March 2020 at 8:26 pm #92123gjbluesParticipant113 pts25th March 2020 at 9:19 am #92133steveosnakeeyeParticipant256 pts

Elijah wood of lord of the rings but that apart its a messed up weird thing but strangley good, think the likes of chucky would love it….25th March 2020 at 11:59 am #92137
Yeah, I’m a Spud-lover, so I’m gonna love anything when Elijah Wood is pretending not to be Frodo Baggins!25th March 2020 at 12:08 pm #92138steveosnakeeyeParticipant256 pts

Kylie-Gomorrah is another classy TV-series,if you havent seen it already.29th March 2020 at 4:40 pm #92342
Hope it’s better than Dirk Gently… sorry, cyber chum, but that was a show that was trying far too hard to be “quirky” and completely forgot in needed a plot as it was a supposed “mystery” style of show… and yes, the character of “Dirk” was even more irritating than the last time I caught a dose of… nevermind, bloody irritating!! Detention for you for that one!29th March 2020 at 5:51 pm #92345nine nine nineModerator878 pts
Brian, I was never an FI fan until my company out of Japan started sponsoring firstly Benetton, then Williams and then Stewart and as they were UK teams I was very involved on behalf of my company with all 3 teams.
Obviously I was very spoilt in being able to get close to the teams Jackie Stewart and Paul Stewart etc and drivers inc Schumacher and Damon Hill etc at the various Grand Prix’s having access at the track to the Hospitality, the Paddock Club,the Pits right up to just before the start of the race as well as visiting team headquarters.
All of which perhaps not unsurprisingly turned me into a bit of an FI fan.
At the time of the Hunt/Lauda battle I wasn’t that much of an F1 fan tbh but subsequently after my conversion I read the Hunt biography and obviously enjoyed the film Rush as you say though lots of similar examples both pre and since then.

Kylie-Gomorrah is back to reality,Italian style reality.Neapolitan mafia @ its best.But I loved Dark-brings something new to the scenery.29th March 2020 at 7:27 pm #92352
‘Dark’ was brill, 10 out of 10 for that one, can’t wait for season three…30th March 2020 at 9:48 am #92379
Season 3? Already midway through 4th.Hows the penguin man series going?30th March 2020 at 9:54 am #92381
They only had seasons 1 & 2 of DARK on Netflix… 3 & 4?? Where do you find them??
As for the penguin series, finished that ages ago, got the last season (5th I think!) for last Father’s Day… still ridiculously enjoyable in a “more-ham-than-a-deli-counter” type of way… 🙂31st March 2020 at 2:00 pm #92493nine nine nineModerator878 pts
