Re: Drayton Manor

I have a question about the “Pirate Adventure” ride. Were is it in the park? I is it open? It's the warehouse looking building here:  https://goo.gl/maps/45kXHyKsHjM2 Regarding whether it's open, it is still close unfortunately. I believe what I posted last year is still accurate. Anybody got any i...

Re: Drayton Manor

Is it?? It’s one of the best attractions there.. if it is being replaced, then a major coaster is needed to replace it Supposedly it's due to the terrible reliability it has been having over the last couple of years. The trains chassis needs to replaced, quoted at over £200,000.00 and apparently th...

Re: Drayton Manor

G-Force is going to be removed this season apparently. I wonder if we will see a replacement any time soon? It leaves the park with only one decent coaster.

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Race result changing team orders absolutely need to be banned from the sport. Problem with that is that they were banned previously but didn't really stop it from occurring. The Alonso/Massa switch in 2010 was during the ban, they still did it and just took the fine for breaking the rules. Unless t...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Joke of a race to be honest, Bottas who dominated the entire weekend being instructed to allow Hamilton past to take the win. I understand that it is part of F1 and always has been, but it's really not good for the show. Updated now that Kvyat has been announced: MERCEDES:  Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri ...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Räikkönen and Leclerc are doing a swap for next season, with Räikkönen signing a two year deal at Sauber.  Really glad that he is staying in Formula 1, and hopefully he can help to move Sauber forwards. I would imagine that this will mean Marcus Ericsson losing his seat, potentially being replaced b...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

It was a pretty decent race, I would of preferred the pole sitter to have won, but I think the winner probably deserved it.

Great race for Bottas too, still managing to secure a good finish despite being used tactically once more.

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

With silly season still in full swing, there are now rumours that Perez could be joining either Haas (replacing Grosjean), or heading to McLaren (replacing Vandoorne). Either situation would leave a driver in an awkward situation, with no realistic seats available for them.

Re: What happened to Ripsaw?

They really should have just bought a new Top Spin as they're great rides and relatively inexpensive. However, this is a Merlin park, they don't do flats.

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

With regards Gasly, apparently Helmut Marko has said he has until mid season to prove himself against Verstappen.

Hopefully the Force India mess/situation can be resolved quickly, they are a quality team and deserve to continue moving forwards.

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

There's still a real possibility that this will also be the last season we see Räikkönen in Formula 1. That would make Lewis Hamilton the driver on the grid with the most experience. It's been strange over the last 5 years seeing so many classic big names retire from the sport. I think the 2000's wa...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Honestly can't say that I'm hugely surprised. No idea what is going on at McLaren at the moment, but can't see them turning it around any time soon.

I would expect that this will confirm Sainz to McLaren and probably give Vandoorne another chance.
