I would want to sit in this car if I got this close to it, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is very tempting Ray, there didn't seem to be anybody 'official' about.
I don't remember this one, Brian...
Brian Walbey: Re Wiki: The team was formed by three times Formula One champion Jackie Stewart and his son Paul Stewart in 1996. The team competed in F1, as the Ford works-supported team, for only three seasons, from 1997 to 1999. At the end of 1999, Ford bought the team outright and it was renamed Jaguar Racing. In 2004 Jaguar Racing was sold to energy drink company Red Bull and was rebranded Red Bull Racing in 2005.
i like this shot very much, Brian. look at all those tyres at the back.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, tyres like those at the back with treads don't feature much in F1 these days.
A fine perspective with the poster in the background!
Brian Walbey: It was the best angle to take the car Richard, sideways on there was lots of 'stuff' around it.
Those tyres will fail the mot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed they would Chad, and they don't last very long either.

Another very fast machine
Brian Walbey: Faster than I'd like to drive a car Chris.
A RED CARPET zoom-zoom. HA!
Brian Walbey: The team was set up by our ex World Champion from Scotland Jackie Stewart and his son, i guess the carpet is their family tartan.

I'd like to hav a go in one of these to see how different it is compared to my car in terms of its handling. I have a feeling that my car's entertainment system may be better, though smile
Brian Walbey: I have often fancied driving one in a straight line on an extremely long road, but corners, that would be another matter.
i would love to have a toy like that Brian... you framed it nicely....petersmile

I had forgotten about Jackie Stewart's essay in F1
Brian Walbey: I knew about Jackie Stewart and this team but hadn't realised until I Googled that the team ended up as Red Bull.
I imagine it could shift a bit!
Brian Walbey: A tad faster than our Honda Jazz Tom.

Toys for big boys.... Too much money goes around in these cars I think. I heard them talking about changing the engines again, so that they make more noise.........
Brian Walbey: Sadly the big teams get lots of money and the 'also rans' at the back struggle to compete. I know that some people don't like the noise they make these days, a real racing motorbike sounds a lot better, but then I'm biased.
