    The message I took from it is that if you leave clever people alone, good things happen. If you impose regulations, auditors and accountants, you get sh*t. Every year, we get hundreds of new regulations and more public "servants" to enforce them. Not hard to see where it's going.

    True, but self regulation leads to the 737 Max issues and a few dead people

    Kelly was a genius and the guys that worked at Skunkworks were incredibly skilled and driven, would have been a brilliant environment to work in

    Ian will be fine in the fog. I've seen his headlights on high beam on a cold morning.

    I wasn't ready for the 1st session so now out at midday. Track still damp and cold, will be very difficult to get any tyre temperature :(

    Have a great weekend on the track! Wondering if I can convince my friend whom I’m driving to Canberra tomorrow to take a detour via Eastern Creek ! Guess it’s the Sydney fog which has delayed my flight now.

    First practice session today I drove badly and couldn't find my rythim on the cold track. 2nd session started similarly but I found my spurs when my mirrors were full of a guy I usually have no trouble with. That woke me up and it went great from there.
