ahh brown adrenalin. I hope he did not choose the white leather interior when he ordered it. I bet his eyes achieve F1.1!


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

It's a whole new level of craziness this sport.

I found it slightly tasteless considering the Bluebird has just been re-run.

I didn't associate the two as it's conventionally powered hydroplane racing and not jet powered.

Not to mention McNish in LeMans. It is not meant to bring pain to others, sorry if you read it in that manner.

I agree that the video shouldn’t be overly negative re Bluebird. If you search YouTube etc for Bluebird you will also get many such videos included.
These backflips are an integral hazard in those races and are not uncommon. Any excessive waves/ripples cause the aerodynamics to fail and the craft becomes a “wing” with uplift. The boats are very high tech with trim control and safety features.

I am sorry if I caused any offense. It was just the timing of the two.
