Le Français

Toujours, je suis désolé pour mes amis( et amies) français(es), mais il est difficile pour moi d'écire en français. Peut-être un jour...

From time to time I have written articles here about motorsport - F1 and rallying - since I assume that a fair proportion of Lancisti are interested in the sport.

So with this in mind I have no hestitaion in including the following dialogue between Autosport and Luca di Montezemolo, Ferrari boss and big noise in the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA).

Di Montezemolo has been prominent in demanding that the teams receive a bigger share of the TV revenues that at present appear to accrue to Bernie Ecclestone's organisation. Thus:

Q. Isn't it a guarantee...

LdM: So you never want to talk about Ferrari, only Ecclestone? I haven't come here to do PR for Ecclestone! I'm kidding.

Q. When talking before Christmas about the redistribution of revenues and more, you said these things need to be re-discussed with Ecclestone. Two days later Ecclestone launched a scathing attack against Ferrari and its top management, which you've never replied to. We've now seen a hug...

LdM: You're either born a gentleman, otherwise you'll never become one.

It would seem that politically at least, the 2009 season should be very interesting!

Lancia in South Africa

Hello again>

Apologies to Phil Laing of South Africa; I wrote a piece last July on this subject and promised Phil that I would include a link to his website, for the Cape Lancia Club - which is well worth looking at as there is plenty of interesting Lancia stuff going on in SA as a glance at the site will demonstrate.

The link is going up now!

A bientôt

Sod the Law!

Music and Radio Blog Club

Radio Blog Club, a good friend for a while appears to be in some legislative difficulty...

However, in tribute to its brave effort, I shall leave the existing track on this page (which amazingly still works)

Sadly my Playlist no longer works (hence its removal) thanks to the absurd "Hadopi" legislation in France. Apologies to all.
