    I start on pole today for my home grand prix at Silverstone (1975). This is round 9 of 15... races are getting tough, Silverstone seems more relaxing than any of the previous races, it is still 68 laps though! Will weather spring some surprises? Who will try and get to the end without pitting??

    I have marked some milestones on my charity page.... some good for me, some bad!

    Give generously to make my season harder!! :)

    Taking to the track at Sandevoerde 1967 (Zandvoort) today... might not be enough room for 27 cars! :)

    Managed to get 9th on the grid for tomorrow's Italian GP at Imola (1972). It is going to be tough to get points today... I am leading the championship by a slim margin and the Ferrari's will be strong here IF their engines don't let go!

    Tune in tomorrow at 2pm UK time if you can WoodeeTV - Twitch

    All these 15 races have been to raise money for "Rethink Mental Illness".... charity donations are appreciated! Tiltify - Racing for Mental Illness

    Just setting up for Imola today... I predict an accident on the first lap in Acque Minerali.... hopefully not in front of me!! I need to get points from 9th today.... so 6th or better is my target today. Unless fuel saving is on the cards, then it will be hard not to make a pitstop!

    I am tired but I will be doing my qualifying for round 14 of this championship using Montreal 1988, starting at 2pm UK time.

    Be sure to check out my charity fundraising links in the first post and if you can donate to my chosen charity I would much appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance.

    About to go live with the penultimate race of my season... it has championship consequences depending on the result of today. Will the Ferraris stay intact and score big points? Can I stay in front and not fall foul of the big kerbs in Montreal? Is the race possible without a pitstop?

    Join me in about 30 mins to find out!! :)

    Not long now... The finale of my Formula 1979 season is today.

    Four drivers in the hunt for the championship.

    There is still time to donate to Rethink to affect the outcome!!

    After 14 x 100% distance F1 races it all comes down to the 15th and final race at Watkins Glen tonight!

    As you know, every race was run to raise money for Rethink Mental Illness with milestones and rewards to redeem. https://tiltify.com/@woodee/racing-for-mental-illness
    You can still decide the outcome of this race with donations tonight!!

    60 laps to decide the championship between 4 drivers (myself included) for the United States East Grand Prix.

    All races have been streamed live from VR and trackside: https://www.twitch.tv/woodeetv

    Start time will be 8pm UK time (2 1/2 hours from now)

    So please join me for the finale to decide the 1979 champ (and raise some money for charity at the same time).
