Historical Note:

Dan Gurney's "home track". The road course opened on September 21st, 1957, and operated until 1988. The dragstrip operated from 1959 through 1970, and from 1983 through 1986.
The short course represented here was used, among the others, for the second round of the 1966 United States Road Racing Championship.

Now the track is gone for good; you can see some pictures from 2001 of what remain back then here:

Fps Dropping Occasionally

Yesterday, 02:56 PM

I'm usually having 36 fps steadily, but sometimes when I enter the car it's only about 30 fps which makes driving distinctly more difficult. If I exit and then re-enter it's usually 36 again. The fps never changes much when I'm driving. My computer should be fast enough to run 60 fps on most tracks so that's not the reason for this problem. I'm not sure, but maybe this started after Windows 10 update. Does anyone know if there is something to do?

The Windsor Interviews (Motorsport.tv).

14 Jan 2018

There's a new series on Motorsport TV called The Windsor Interviews (the Windsor is Peter Windsor). I've just watched the first episode with Mauro Forghieri and it was wonderful!

It's beautifully produced and very engaging. Well worth catching the repeats in my opinion. I have to declare that L'ingegnere is a great hero on mine. The man was/is an automotive engineering genius who doesn't seem to attract the same acclaim as the likes of Chapman, Duckworth etc. I hope the series continues in the same vain. I would love to see a similar interview with Dick Scammell for instance.
