  1. My goodness, Peter! You're a scientist, yet quote, "NICE ignore all science and rely exclusively upon RCTs for COVID" (RCTs = Randomised Controlled Trials) RCTs are the bedrock, the Gold Standard of modern science and evidence-based medicine. In the words of the BMJ, they are the only way in which "conscientious, explicit, judicious and reasonable" medicine may be practiced. If no one has done any RCTs on VitD that does not mean that anyone with an opinion is valid. John
  2. Another in-car video from Mi-Ohio! This time a bit more exciting as it's mid-field, with David Gott in hos TR4 dicing with Spitfire, Herald and GT6! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHVERfezJ4c&fbclid=IwAR2p9kuURi0xzzNquWjBYm5_nj6JhPDvsS7jqPtrbTVID0ixBthAv4Lxai4
  3. John Lilley, of Classic Films in the US is compiling, as he does each year, a film to include as much as possible about the MId-Ohio event. He'll publish in due course, and last years from Buttonwillow Raceway, is available already on his YouTube channel:
  4. In car footage, inc. "The Incident"! See here: https://www.facebook.com/NorthAmTriumphs
  5. Carl Fitchett - no idea if related, but he answers queries and orders promptly and competently. Recommended.
  6. That is a little bit Micawberish, but I take your point! Bests, Hamish!
  7. Well that was fun! wish I'd been there but hey, there's always next year. John
  8. Gosh, the SVRA must know what sector of the population they have watching, the commercial breaks include ads for these:
  9. Kas can't be at this years Kastner Cup - first time, ever. The Friends of Triumph have sent him their good wishes from the circuit. See: (From the North American Triumphs facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NorthAmTriumphs/ It would be nice if the TR Register did too!
  10. Well, that was this mornings races. Ormost of them - it finished on the green flag lap of the last. so not much of that on show. For me, now, its 1745, 1245 in Ohio, and they are breaking for lunch. I wonder where the live stream for the PM races will be? John
  11. Yes, Mike, the commentators had not done the home work - or else the Friends of Triumph had not provided them with notes. They clearly had no idea that the "Striped Vitesse" is the KASTNER-Brophy car, built by Kas for the TransAm in the 70s, and my dream car! And even the SVRA office staff, who I emailed, had no idea about online coverage beyond the app!
  12. That SVRA app turned out to be bloody useless. It gave me a lovely view of the previous race, up to the last fopur laps - and then collapsed. Thnak goodness for the North American Triumph Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NorthAmTriumphs that showd a good view of a major ccorner through Qualifying. More padovk videos I hope and Race 1 at about 2100 our time! No idea how Sam Halkias did, MIke. The SVRA is supposed to display a leaderboard, but didn't when it was live. No doubt we'll find out. John
  13. Roy, Seems that live streaming is not available on the SVRA website after all, but only via the app that they sponsor: https://svra.com/svra-mobile-app/ It's available in Apple iPhone and Google Android versions. Many (most?) mobiles use either one of those operating systems (OS), so if yours does, go and get it. On your PC, the North American Triumph page is featuring short videos of the cars and drivers in the paddock, asnd I think will show some Kastner Cup racing, as they were scouting for a good trackside post to video from yesterday. https://www.facebook.com/NorthAmTriumphs Leave a message for Shawn so that he knows the Brits are watching! My problem was that A/ I have a tiny phone with a tiny memory, too small for the SVRA app (!) unless I delete essential apps, and B/ My tablet is a Kindle Fire, whose 8" screen is much more acceptable. It uses an OS that is related to Android but won't accept the Android SVRA app! If that is your situation then go to the "How to Geek" webpages, and look for "How to Install the Google Play Store on the Amazon Fire Tablet or Fire HD 8" https://www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/ The instructions are straightforward, and sensible, especially that after you install the programs advised, it may take a little while for the tablet to sort itself out, so go and have a cuppa! And it works! John
  14. After a digital battle, I've managed to install the SVRA app on my KIndle Fire - it will not run on a PC and the SVRA will not be streaming via thier YouTube channel. I've also found the "North American Triumph" Facebook page that represents the online magazine http://www.triumphspitfire.com/. They have been touring the paddock,videoing the cars, interviewing the drivers and sussing out a good place to video Qualy and Race 1 tomorrow.. No qualy today, as in practice, a Sp[itfire lost its oil. Track owners HATE that, it's bad for the tarmac, and drivers hate it only slightly less as it tends to reduce grip and traction a tad. So there was some delay while it was cleared up, and the time was taken out of the Triumph allocation, cancelling the Qualy session in the pm. Fair doos as they say. Maybe the guilty will buy a few rounds tonight? So, we should be set for a day of racing and paddock walks tomorrow! Enjoy! JOhn
