A Few Video Issues

Written by Jay Walker on Sunday, 02 March 2003 00:00. Posted in P34 News

divx-largeBad News .. thanks to Alex, its been brought to my attention that the new 1976 videos on the site wont play using the DivX 5.0.2 codec. Unfortunately we just upgraded all our video production PC's to DivX 5.0.3 so I apologise to all of you. Unfortunately the only way to play them is to update your DivX codec to the latest version (click on the logo) sorry...

Good News .. To make up for the inconvenience I've posted a new video clip taken from the ITV documentary of Ken Tyrrell, Its a great little montage of P34 1976 moments, download it on the Video Page.

Enjoy - Jay

Slightly off subject . . .

rosberg1I know this is slightly off subject but as we get a lot of retro F1 fans here I thought I'd mention that I'm helping to sell a piece of Genuine F1 History, this is one of Keke Rosberg's race helmets from his days at Williams F1 (1982-1985).

The helmet is up for auction on E-bay, please click here or on the picture to link directly to the item.

Happy Bidding - Jay (Auction now Finished 26/02/03)

A Second Reborn P34 !

Written by Jay Walker on Sunday, 23 February 2003 00:00. Posted in P34 News

2ndP34Details are still a little vague at the moment but it appears that another P34 has been restored and is to contest the 2003 FiA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Championship, the car is owned by Piero Ratti and will be raced this year by Mauro Pane. Unfortunately I'm not certain that we will see two P34's on the TPG grid this year as I have heard that Martin Stretton will not be contesting Simons Bull's P34 this year ( If any one can confirm this please let me know).

You can be sure that I'll be following this story closely and will post updates and pictures as soon as I can.

Cheers - Jay

1976 Season Clips On-Line

Written by Jay Walker on Saturday, 22 February 2003 00:00. Posted in P34 News

p34cameracarFirstly I'd like to thank everyone for visiting the site, over 6000 hits in a little over three months is amazing, I had no idea that this site was going to be so popular, it seems there are a lot more P34 Fans out there than I first thought.

Secondly I'm pleased to announce that I've got three new on-board P34 clips up from the 1976 season and several new images in the P34 Picture Archive, the Driver Profiles are coming soon ( I promise)

Cheers - Jay

1976 Gallery On-Line

Written by Jay Walker on Wednesday, 29 January 2003 00:00. Posted in P34 News

1976seasonI've been real busy the last few weeks so site updates have been a little on the slow side, however, I've finally got the 1976 season review picture gallery on-line. Like the 77 gallery, these are a few select grabs from the fantastic 1976 season review which was aired by Motors TV last year (and repeated last week), I hope you enjoy them. There are one or two new pictures in the archive gallery too.

I'm still working on the driver profiles which is taking a little longer than expected, I think the next site update will be some more onboard P34 video footage, I've almost got the avi's finished, I should have them up in a week or so.

Cheers - Jay
