Parting Shots - Intro

Its been a little over 2 years since I last posted anything here. When I started this blog I had plenty of things to say about racing in general, Formula 1 in particular. Yeah, I used to be active on forums but somehow I there were just too many morons on those websites and it wasn't fun. Then discovering Blogger, I found the perfect way to let it all out. Yeah, I considered all of this a kind of word vomit. And I guess I've thrown up enough.

Honestly, I've always blogged for myself. I really didn't care what the hell anyone thought of this. They're my thoughts and opinions. Heck, I got away from forums and started this to get away from imbeciles out there. But one or two of them did find their way into this blog's comments.

Unlike some other bloggers, I never pampered to the general and popular trends out there to pamper to prospective readership (and gain ad revenues of course). If I did, it was purely coincidence. And unlike some other bloggers, I hadn't aimed to be the next Autosport editor.

In the last couple of years, there have been many changes and many significant events. But really, I never felt compelled to comment because after 30 years of watching motorsports, I felt I'd seen it all before. And the things that I wrote about years ago still hold true today and more than once I think to myself those four precious words: I told you so.

So with all of the above in mind, I've decided to write a series of posts. Call it the last ones for the road. This will summarise some of the things I've said before, some comments of events in the last couple of years, comments on other bloggers and retaliation against some idiots who've posted comments on my posts. This time though, I'm disabling all comments. Coz really don't give a shit what you have to say.
