Jody & the Six Wheeler

Written by Jay Walker on Tuesday, 17 June 2003 01:00. Posted in P34 News

Jody and the Six WheelerHi everyone, just a small update today,

I've just got back from Le-Mans 2003 which was great, while I was there I took a stroll around Alex Reade's always impressive stand and came across this painting by Nicholas Watts, which depicts Jody Scheckter and Patrick Depailler taking the memorable 1st & 2nd place at the Swedish Grand Prix in 1976. Naturally I couldn't resist so I had to buy it, as a bonus it's been signed by Derek Gardner, Jody and the artist, I even got photographs of Derek & Jody signing the print which is limited to 500.

If anyone is interested in this painting you can buy it on-line at Alex Reade's web site, just click on the picture to link straight to his site, I'll warn you though, there is some seriously great motorsport art available and given the money I could spend a fortune (If you do go to Alex's site and find something interesting, please mention my name & web site, I'm trying to build up some good links for a new P34 project I'm working on)

Jody Scheckter Profile On-Line

Written by Jay Walker on Friday, 06 June 2003 01:00. Posted in P34 News

scheckterI Know its been a while but the Jody Scheckter driver profile is finally on-line..

Monza Update: I got an email form Mauro Pane who told me that the reason he retired from the race was because of a broken drive shaft, a great shame after making such a great start. I hope you will join me in wishing him luck at the next round of the TGP at the Nurburgring, Germany on June 13-15.

Site Update: I've changed the code for the flash components on the site, which should load correctly now and download the player if its not already installed. If anyone has problems please email me.

More video clips and pictures coming soon.

Until next Time - Jay

Six Wheels & Pasta

Written by Jay Walker on Saturday, 26 April 2003 11:00. Posted in P34 News

P34Monza2003As promised we've got an exclusive site update this week, I've just got back from spending three fantastic days in Monza were Mauro Pane and the F1 Storiche Team where contesting round three of theThoroughbred Grand Prix Championship.

It was a great weekend and Mauro the team gave up some of their busy time to talk to me about the car and allowed me access to their pit and garage for some great pictures.

Mauro stared the race in 6th position and moved up into third by the end of the 1st lap, by lap 2 he was running 2nd and chasing for the lead, unfortunately an incident on lap three took the six wheeler out of the race, I'll post an update when I get clarification on what happened.

You can view all the pictures in the gallery.

All those who are waiting to here about out little secret project will have to wait just a little bit longer, I'll be working on some pages to explain all this week and should have them up soon.

Cheers - Jay

P34 in the 2003 TGP

Written by Jay Walker on Saturday, 26 April 2003 01:00. Posted in P34 News

petterson1977On April 11th-13th the first race of the 2003 TGP season took place at  Jarama in Spain.

This race was the first outing for Mauro Pane and P34 chassis Number 5 now owned by Piero Ratti. Mauro qualified the six wheeler in 5th position and managed to get up to 3rd in the race before a Spark Plug failed and the car had to retire from the race.

Despite failing to finish its looking good, I predict that Mauro and his P34 will have great success in the year, We're hoping to get some photos of the restored car soon and I'll keep you updated on its progress throughout the Year.

monza1Great news, we're off racing at Monza this weekend and will hopefully have access to the Italian teams P34 (see below) where I hope to be able to get some great pictures and interviews with the driver and team. I don't know if any of the regular visitors have been able to find much about this new TGP team & car but I for one haven't hence this trip.

This little trip will hopefully also lead to some final planning on our secret project which if all goes well this weekend I will be announcing soon after my return.

Cheers - Jay
