As 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
On 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.
Great 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.

Lots of new images in the P34 Picture Archive this week,
A big thanks to everyone who has contributed to what I believe to be the largest collection of P34 images anywhere, keep them coming :-)
Also a small update on Patrick Depailler's profile with some interesting quotes from other drivers.
Cheers - Jay
A few site updates this week...
Firstly Ronnie Peterson's Driver Profile is now ready.
Secondly I've tidy up a few pages and improved the Project 34 flash banner, I hope you all like it, a big thank you goes out to John in Chicago for sending me those drawings.
I'd also like to thank Stefan Schmidt in Austria who has sent me lots more info on Patrick Depailler and some nice pictures of the six wheeled rocket, expect an update to his profile soon.
