Long time no post

Ok so I know the whole point of blogging is an online diary update on a subject, however, I've been a little busy.

The building is not far off being finished and I'll get some up to date photos asap.

We've been busy trying to land a few new projects, all exciting ones, which we hope to announce soon.

As well as normal work I'm back in the BTCC this season so that has kept me busy with a few test days and the first race this weekend.

On top of all that my wife and I have just had our 3rd baby!!!

I hope to be up on site soon so I'll give you an update. I was at Silverstone for the BTCC media day last week but I didn't get down to the building. Up on the north part of the track the FIM have been busy requesting new kerbs and removing grass verge at Woodcote.

Well a lot has happened since my last post. I'm now back Race Engineering in the BTCC and I've got a new article on the BBC

F1 Testing

Hey folks, well the season is drawing closer, and the excitement is building. Kubica has had a serious accident whilst rallying, but as a circuit designer, what do I think? Well, to be honest, armco / guardrail has always scared me. Armco is the cheap option but as a designer I always try to present the driver with a radius, rather than a blunt end hidden by tyres, but I would prefer concrete, however, this is expensive..... what can be done? I'll have a think and put my ideas forward.

By the way I have some great ideas about F1 and overtaking! I've got it sussed from a circuit design point of view!!!!

Well it's been a while but here are some more up to date images of Silverstone. As you can see the new Pit Building is coming along very nicely and is on target for handover on 6th May.

In the meantime here are a few more images including one taken from the roof. I'm sure you'll agree the views are spectacular and it looks like FOM will use this for the Grand Prix.
