Not strictly a drag racing question, but what are people's thoughts on the new breed of F1 cars?
Will the adoption of new technology and a (predicted) improvement in racing lead to more fans or will the loss of the noise be a major factor?
I didn't like it at first but am now starting to enjoy hearing the cars actually working. But there does seem to be more than a few people missing the old noise.
Would this be a factor say if turbos took over Top Doorslammer do you think?

Hi Geoff, the bulletin came via email this afternoon. Rob works for his own business, Grant was on his way to the track for the Bike Night and I was underwater looking at tropical fish. Ok, I don't have a day job...but we all have our life commitments first.
Thought I might start up another idea thread...what do you think your local track can do, or what has your local track done, to make you feel valued as a racing or spectating customer?
Ignoring the usual "lower the fees" or "pay us more prizemoney" calls, what are low/no cost ways a track could improve your experience and have you coming back for more? Who knows, maybe your suggestion could be taken aboard for the improvement of your local track!
Just reeling off a few things that have made an impact on me at tracks:
- Greetings at the gate. It is very nice when you get a happy voice and someone who is very enthusiastic to help you, not treating you like an interruption to their day. Bristol in the USA had this down to a 't'.
- Good information distribution/communication. When you feel like you are part of an event and aware of everything that is happening it certainly makes you feel more connected to it and valued.
- Those little shower spray things. Sometimes it's good just to cool off!
Well it's all off and running in Pomona.
