  • shawdreamer: back in the days of arton sennsa and nigel mansell a race was always closer, even though the cars back then wernt as limited and standardized across the teams as todays the drivers unique skills had a massive factor in how a race would pan out.... either way it was always a guaranteed sight to see..... same situ in footy, back in the days of vinny jones and the like, they took a nasty tackle and dislocated there knee, quick spit and wipe off and up they got to take the free kick, nowadays a fan calls them a poofters and they dive on the floor and throw a tantrum like a five yr old whos been told they cant have any sweeties.

  • ched999uk: You are right about the entertainment factor. I think F1 is entertaining provided there are some closely matched competition or weather. I like teh fact that on some tracks a single slight error can cost the driver the race in F1. I used to love the, I think it was Rally Cross in the 80's. Saw some live with Metro XR4 at Brans, just amazing control. That was entertaining as rally+tarmac and cars racing each other side by side.

  • Reman: I never really liked F1. It was too all or nothing for my liking. The driver had to get every racing line, breaking point and gear change right to have a chance at winning. In rallying, someone could barrel roll their car into a ravine, but if they could get back on the track and had a big enough lead they could still wind up finishing in a podium position. Now THAT'S  entertainment. :)

  • JeremyE: The surface is constantly changing and you have way less time to react.
    June 27, 2017, 10:55:22
  • JeremyE: F1 requires way more skill!
    June 27, 2017, 10:54:31
  • ched999uk: Rally is great to watch and they display amazing control and skill. The problem for me is only seeing very limited clips of cars and it's a tie trial only. OK so the surface changes and they don't get to try the track before it matters. I like to see F1 drivers overtaking, OK so before anyone says what overtake in F1, it is getting better :)
    June 27, 2017, 10:35:24
  • shawdreamer: dont mean to take anything away from F1 drivers but when they race they rely on the road surface being dependably and consistently the same everytime..... a rally driver has to has to adjust his technique on every single turn and bend and take account that everytime another vehicle go's through that turn and bend ahead of his it changes the nature of the surface, F1 drivers are skilled, Rally drivers are skilled and brave..... and more than a little nuts

  • Hozza: BTCC is a good one to watch also, after all rubbing is racing

  • ched999uk: true
    June 26, 2017, 10:31:03
  • shawdreamer: "once ina while" is all very good with F1 but you watch a rally and everytime its a spectacle.
    June 26, 2017, 09:10:35
  • ched999uk: I assume you missed the F1 today. It was ore like rally cross!!!

Just a word of caution to anyone looking to purchase a used/refurbished PC, do not use PC-Tec.co.uk (https://pc-tec.co.uk/) as they are trading while under Administration. 

Not in itself a particular problem, providing they behave themselves.  But the reasons for them being in Administration become abundantly clear once you place an order with them.  They simply fail to deliver and communications from them is very poor to be point of none at all.

Even PayPal has cut them off, but they are still able to use Visa/Mastercard Credit/Debit cards to take payment. 

I am currently a creditor of theirs to the tune of £144.96, not the end of the world of course but why should I be funding their fraudulent lifestyles?    My hope is that I will be able to recover my funds by way of the Bank. 

Bottom line, unless you want a load of grief making a simple purchase just stay away, avoid at all costs, do not use PC-Tec.co.uk.

If you used a credit card contact the issuer and explain. They will normally chargeback the transaction and you will not be out of pocket.

Good Luck

I did get it solved with my Bank who did clawback on my Debit card.  Fortunately, the incompetence of PC-Tec extended to not claiming the money back and so the transaction ended in my favour.

Since this time, a while back, I have been contacted by several Facebookers who saw my postings on PC-Tec's FB page that they left intact.  Commercial suicide or pure incompetence?  You decide  :laugh:
