Great Ideas Matt, I bet I can get him on the fuel thing!

He has been busy as of late working on his land speed record setting solar car, he has it all drawn out and some of the specs on paper and is working on a model. I asked him what the speed record was for a solar car and he said "oh no, I am going to set the all time record with it". Shocked

Matt, that video is awesome with Senna at Monaco... just think how much faster he would have been had he not had to hold a shoulder supported VHS recorder (circa 1991).

Man how far technology has come! .... or in the case of F1, how much technology has caused new regulations to hold them back!

I hear Branson's investment in Brawn GP is, for the moment, for but two races @ $250K per race. Chump change in F1, and nowhere near justifies the coverage and face time he gets on Speed. Mad
