Boring and the Haas and Peak logo which are supposed to be silver look very white to me...

Still a change to the normal cars you see on the line up though imo,  Just very sad the F1 cars have no appeal to me these days.  They should put all all the 80s F1 cars back on the circuit and race them propely,  they could pretty much charge as much as they like for tickets, make plenty of money of the tv and sky sponsership at the same time.  

  Just one race to begin with in the summer time to see what crowds it pulls in, i am sure it would be a sell out  :thumbup:

How serious is the racing though ?    are they thrashing the machines or just driving quickly and been very gentlmanly to protect the expensive classics ? 

I am talking blown engines, crashed cars and sheer adrenalin drivers :whistle:

I’ve never seen one of the Masters races but if it’s anything like the Revival meeting, then it is proper racing - blown engines, armco and all.

This launch reminded me of something else besides the JPS colours. Unknown brand - mysterious Sponsor owner ..............ok not quite the Albert Hall but still a glamorous London location. He has a better beard than David Thieme though :P Guenther Steiner even grew antlers............

When I had my visit to CLT a whilst back I asked about that, and they told me that some of the new owners are within less than a second of the actual F1 lap times of the period. So I'd say they are being raced hard.

Anyone else been following the latest 'goings'-on' with Haas and Rich Energy?  Seems William Storey the drinks company CEO really is like David Thieme in more ways than one!

HAAS are a funny old machine tool company.

They have a depot in Norwich and their machines are stored and delivered from an address 200 yards from my factory.

Their rep always comes and sees me but I just dont rate their machines. I bought my last machine from Hurco in High Wycombe.
