Started work on Canadian GP chapter

Yes, I’ve gone back to writing… finally! I’ve read all my research on the 1994 Canadian Grand Prix, and started on the race preview.

Some additional research

During my writing, this afternoon, I realised I needed some more information on the Île Notre-Dame and its history — 1967 World’s Fair and 1976 Summer Olympics — as well as some more details on previous GPs.

Much work to do

So, although I re-started work on The Encounter Down Under, I’ve still got a lot of work to do. I still want to finish chapter 7 before the end of the month, though.

Spanish race is 5th oldest GP

I stumbled upon something interesting while researching and writing the Spanish Grand Prix chapter. Something I hadn’t realised before. Fact is that the Spanish GP is one of the oldest Grands Prix in existence. The first one was contested in 1913, and as many as 12 races took place pre-WWII. This makes only the French, Italian, Belgian and British GPs older, and the Spanish race one of the old ‘Grandes Épeuvres’. Just thought I’d share.
