The Way It Used To Be

I don’t know if you had any plans for the next eight hours, but here’s one way to spend them.

Racing the way it used to be and quite honestly still should, especially when it comes to the sound of the engines.

Footnote from former bandmate Knob, who lives there and knowing my love for F1, sent me the link:

We watched from the roof terrace at Café Milano. Best place on the track. Hired by the Bentley Drivers Club UK by my buddy Mark, who is also great mates with one-time F1 Champion Jody Schecter.  Jody just sold his F1 car collection on Saturday at Sotheby’s Monaco auction. Got €6.7m for his Ferrari 312T !!

Also, went to the Eddie Jordan chat with Red Bull designer Adrian Newey on Saturday evening at the Yacht Club. Some interesting stories.

Must be nice to be one of the Idle Rich…


  1. Now I’m not going to get much work done today or Tomorow, not to mention next weekend. …. and it’s all your fault.

    I can still vividly remember the sound of the first F1 car at speed I heard ( and felt), a 1 1/2 liter V12 Ferrari at the Glen in 1962 at the age of 15.

    If you’ve never been to a F1 race live, I’d certainly recommend one. and nothing is better than Monaco. Yes, it’s hard to see more than one corner at a time, It’s impossible to move around. and ridiculously expensive. But you are close to COTA and that’s more or less the opposite ( at least as far as attending an F1 event)

  2. I go to a fair amount of races, mostly NASCAR, but some IMSA and Indycar occasionally

    Monaco is a bucket list event for me

    So is Le Mans

    I’ll be in Charlotte next weekend for the NASCAR Coca Cola 600, but we’ll watch the F1 Monaco race and the Indy 500 on television while we’re cooking our food
