I would be cautious about selling as the high prices could be a function of early signs of hyper-inflation (let's hope not). Sure you might sell for what you think it a good price, but measure that against what you can buy with it.

Different level really. There's a few Czech races as well.

iirc there's an Irish Road Racing Championship which is about 11 rounds. The Isle of Man TT isn't part of the championship. it should also be noted the road racing in Ireland is actually racing , not time trial like the Isle of Man TT. This is the Ulster

Legitimacy of the series? F1 is a team sport. I have a lot of problems with the technical regulations, but the sport IS the technical regulations, not juts the sporting ones.

Cambox Pro might offer some way to get helmet camera integration without effecting the integrity of the lid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMwKZ1zaNzo

Karting. From club to elite level is probably the hardest most competitive racing on the planet. It's still 2-stroke too.

Firstly, this decision I believe is a safety one. Helmets are designed specifically to deal with impacts. A camera stuck on them is a problem with regard to pressure and that kind of thing. They are pretty much banned in karting too and no one is making ... more »

We also need to be careful that the next generation is going to behave in ways we expect . For example, one study found young people are eating more meat now than 5 years ago (which is bad news). This is completely against the 'vegan youth' trend. It's ... more »

I like you optimism but insurance, environmental damage (this is be a bigger issue going forward than people yet understand) and injury risk will limit opportunity in that arena.

I don't doubt there's a ring of truth to this. But I don't think this young wave of people is what you think it is. RedBull have invested in promoting two-stroke. Their CR500 video got 2.4M views. The straight rhythm was went 2-stroke. Young people are ... more »

Firstly, I think we have more 2-stroke manufacturers than America, certainly ones that build competition engines - Vortex, IAME, Moderna, Ital, Rotax, TKM, TM etc... Karting, which is prevelant around Europe, is mainly 2-stroke and certainly at the high-levels ... more »

Well you don't compare fastest lap times, you compare average lap time or just overall race time (whichever you prefer). That's all that really matters. If you win when you haven't been winning for a long time then that absolutely is a relative improvement ... more »

It's not quite accurate regarding F1. Speed is generally controlled via tyres and technical regulations that affect downforce levels. It's not just a 'too fast' thing either. The 2009 regulations were created to make the cars easier to follow each other ... more »
