    Ayrton Senna film mentioned by Clarkson, where is it?

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I saw the Senna documentary today as part of the Adelaide Film Festival. To sum it up in one word - WOW. But that doesn't do the film any justice at all. The producers, writers & directors totally nailed it. I started watching F1 in 1984-5 when I was...

    The senna Film was perfection... Bought back so many memories of 80's F1. Also reminded me of two of my favourite things - the Adelaide grand prix and the fact that the Malboro McLaren livery was even better than the JPS Lotus Livery... In my opinion anyway. I have watched the Senna film...

    Does anyone still have 56k on here? [Speed Test Thread]

    Been on broadband since I moved back to Adelaide in 2001. I still remember buying my first modem in 1993 - was a 14.4k modem and cost me around $500. Ironic that in early 2001 I was still only connecting at 19.6k! even with a 56k modem!

    2010 Formula 1 Season - Official Discussion Thread

    I had heard somewhere that one explanation for Virgin's cock up was they had changed the density of the fuel late in the year which lead to the miscalculation.. Cant remember the source though Think it may have been Joe Saward's blog or something... Edit: Here's a link...
