well, thought of calling you Dermot, but honestly on Sunday, we made the morning pilgrimage to Gloria's for our morning four glasses [2 ea] champagne, but before that went to Infineon and saw the lackluster event, and just spun about in the entry way and off for Gloria's.
Don't know Ferrari's attempt. I know the Italian venue can be a last min. in terms of organization, but this was over a year in the making: it's not the economy, as they over spend sometimes. It's the LOCATION.
They feel the NA market, if not the 'older well established' Euro market is locked: They are moving resources to newer areas like ME, and Asia.
We are now the step-children and the token fling.
The people I feel a bit for, although they seem to almost do ok, are the historic folks, who showed the banner from old-now. Many a historic racer had a NEW pony in the area. And NOW they are out of a shared track time.
