The Inaugural Turkish Grand Prix 21-08-05

Today marks a further addition to the Formula One Calendar with the first running of the Turkish Grand Prix in Istanbul.
It's always good to see a new track come into being but of course a little sad to see some go by the wayside,after decades of activity.
Zandvoort in Holland is a case in point.The Grand Prix's of yester year have played host to some of the World's most renowned Formula One stars and the sight of Jimmy Clark battling his Lotus through the dunes of the Dutch Circuit will be a lasting memory for those of us no longer 21 or 31 or 51!!

I have to mention now a vivid memory of one of my first MotorRacing outings back in 1964 with a handful of my school friends ,including two of my closest, Ian Snelling and Ray Whitehead.After all this time, it still seems like yesterday when we travelled to the Crystal Palace Circuit on the outskirts of London to watch the battles between two future World Champions who at that time were quite unknown.

The Formula Two Race will remain etched in my memory as a young Scot..Jackie Stewart and a with a rather unpronouncable name..Jochen Rindt, did battle .It was a dry dusty day and sadly the Circuit no longer exists but the memory is as strong as ever.
Jochen Rindt (a jovial Austrian ) went onto become the only Posthumous World Formula One Champion and most of the public will of course have heard of the Legendary Jackie Stewart whose own Team Creation is now Racing under another Banner.

The countless Zillions being invested in Formula One is of course good for all involved but many of today's technical motoring innovations that we take for granted stem from developments in this field and I am sure will continue to do so well into the future.

This season so far has been much more enjoyable as the Ferrari and Shoemacher star begins to wane and others are given the opportunity to shine. Good luck to all the Teams today, in just two hours time, and to all of you out there Safe Driving

Have a look at our website which hopefully won't go the way of the Crystal Place Circuit or our School which is buried under an Industrial Estate now I believe.near Tadworth in Surrey England.
