Formula One

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone else watch? In my opinion the last year or so it has been more interesting than Nascar. Much of it due to how boring Nascar has become. The racing seems to be either real bad or real good. I think that running in the rain also makes it more interesting. The one thing I know for sure is that it is easy to watch when they run in Europe. You can roll out of bed on Sun morning turn on the TV and they are ready to start.

Id rather have acid sprayed into my eyes than ever watch formula one again. Europe can have it.

Formula 1 is great. The driver's title being decided on the last corner of the last lap of the last race is a pretty fun sport to be part of. Watching cars turn left 1000 times in a row gets pretty old. Also, the lack of technology development in the NASCAR series is pretty disappointing. NASCAR should push for a kinetic energy recovery system in an alternate form, say hydraulic. That might make it interesting. Watching desperate drivers crash into each other and take out half the field isn't very entertaining.

They are 2 totally different types of racing. You can't even compare the 2. F1 is high tech/high $ engineering driven racing, and NASCAR is more old school.

I like the start of the F1 races though. Dead stop at the flagstand, green light, all hell breaks loose into the first turn. Then I fall asleep.

Remember it's not just Europe: It is arguably the most popular racing in the rest of the world. A Nascar driver could only dream of making the kind of money that F1 drivers make.

Of course, some don't like driving there either and come to Nascar i.e. Montoya, Carpentier, Papas and probably a few others.

I have caught many early Sunday morning F1 races...Definitely high tech, but as boring as it gets. Very few passes for the lead. Very few passes period!!

Nascar's COT is designed to let low budget teams still come to the races. This is getting back to the grass roots of Nascar and better not change!!

Watching drivers bang into one another for the lead is why we watch. F1 fans might be looking for interesting. I'm looking for exciting.

F1 is okay with a cup of coffee in the morning. Plenty of skill involved and incredible G-forces. But all of the cars seem to be on a rail.

And here in the great USA alot of us still can't get the image of the guy "parking" his car before the finish line so his buddy could take the checkers!! At least in Nascar they don't make "taking a dive" look so obvious!!

    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels. 
    • Day 4 Morning   I think we were both tired of trying to call birds across private fences, so we decided to try going for the distant gobbles I heard when I shot my bird.   There was actually a decent gravel road that went into this area and allowed us to have an easy walk into where I felt the birds should be.   We got in early to try to get there ahead of any other hunters, but it didn't seem to matter.   Forest roads were abundant, so walking was easy.  We went right to the spot I had a bird gobble from a few days prior, and waited.     It didn't take long for the flock to start making noise, and we only had to move a little ways to get close to them.   As usual the turkeys all came down and went away from us.  They set up shop on a long ridge and seemed content to just stay there.   We had no easy approach so set up our own position on the forest road we were on which was covered in tracks.   Other birds were gobbling in the distance the opposite way, and when one sounded close we chose to go for him.   Nothing came of that little walk other than the loss of a $65 custom call...  On the plus side we found a nice deer skull.     Back to the flock, one gobbler would respond to a crow call, so we knew they were still up on the hill.  We made a painfully slow walk straight at them since they were high enough up they hopefully wouldn't see us.  When we got to the timber they stopped responding, so we guessed they went over the top.  We worked our way up and found where they had been feeding.  Just shy of the top we set up to call just in case they were over the lip of the hill.     We received an immediate response to some lite hen yelps and clucks.  A hen with the gobbler was not at all pleased that we were there.  We got into a bit of a yelling match with her.  She was coming closer, dragging the gobbler with her.  When I heard drumming I motioned for my uncle to get the gun up since he was still calling.  In a few moments I saw a tail fan cresting the hill.  He angled left, looked around, went behind a tree.  I heard him go into strut and drum...   BANG!           
    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off.
