Hello folks,
Another 'murican here from Kansas. Have been seriously following F1 since the battles of Prost/Senna back in the eighties.

I am a retired SCCA flag and comm. worker and have worked a number of pro events but never a F1 race. I have spent a lot of time watching race cars and motorcycles go around the track.

Hello, MB-BOB here. I've followed F1 since the mid 1960's, since Jimmy Clark and Graham Hill first appeared at the Brickyard. I was intrigued with the rear-engine Lotus, and it pegged my interest in learning about F1.

Back then, all we could watch in the US was taped delay broadcasts of the Monaco GP. It was a good showcase then and more or less remains so today.

With the advent of consumer grade recording media (VHS followed by DV-R), I began recording the races in May 1982, the first being the unfortunate weekend in Zolder where Gilles Villeneuve died. With the exception of three races missed due to technical difficulties, etc, I have made it a habit to record every race since.

I live in the Dallas, TX area, USA... home of the one-off (thankfully) and completely forgettable 1984 Dallas Grand Prix. :(

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like quite the archive you've got yourself there.

Nowadays, I feel more obligated to record a race than desiring to tape a race... can't break the chain...

Hey everyone. Happy to be on PlanetF1. I have been watching F1 since 1996 (roughly) & can't wait to share my views on F1 with everyone in here.

Hey all. Have been reading through this forum for a couple of years now daily and thought it was about time I got involved! Look forward to posting and getting involved in a couple of forum games. I'm a McLaren and Fernando Alonso supporter.
