Formula E Donnington testing dates
Not sure where to put this, but: http://www.donington-park.co.uk/news/201...son-tests/

I should be able to go on August 19th and may not be taking my ear protectors...

Mark

No, it isn't August 19th yet!

Cool track, but that clip's a bit spooky - like doing it in a soapbox.
That idea of texting boosts is catastrophically naff.

I'll be there next week.

They've been doing race-day simulations: count the number of times everyone says it's going to be 'amazing' in the video on this report: http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2014/08/fo...gton-park/

At least they are not saying Awesome. I was disappointed no one said 'for sure'.

Rats.
It looks like I may not be able to go to Donnington.

One of my regular employing firms has Tuesday as the only date they've been able to fix a meeting in London for about 20 "key people", including yours truly. They're making it so much worth my while that I can't really refuse.

In the way of the world the meeting may well get rescheduled at the last minute, so I may yet be able to go...

Mark

If it does then you should send them an invoice anyway, Bernie doesn't take rescheduling without getting paid. I'm sure they'll be fine with it. Smile

Another excuse is needed to visit the Donington collection then.

No excuse needed, just some time!

In the event they held the meeting by teleconference: it still meant I couldn't go to the test, but at least I was able to clock up a massive invoice while sipping my own choice of coffee.

Mark
