:D so do I. In fact, so do half of Cape Town. The place was legend. Reminds me of my national service year. As well as "The George", ComicStip and Abigails/Lloyds do. There I go and give my age away :D

A very exspensive game to compete in

I don't this South Africans realize how exspensive this sport is! With the likes of Larry Ellison (Oracle) and Paul Allen (ex-Microsoft) sponsoring teams on their own, we don't have the luxury of having this sort of money behind our team. It takes load if it to compete. The technology is state of the art and as advanced as F1.

It is great that the sport is getting coverage here, and hopefully more youngsters will take an interest, but it would be nice if a Shuttelworth would through in a hundred million or two - because this is what it takes.

The sport is expensive (especially the big copywrited international classes) - thats why the sponsorship is nessisary - btw our team (last time I checked) has the smallest budjet
