NI Promoters Websites - 10 Years Online
This weekend marks 10 years since the domain was first registered online. It's hard these days to look back and imagine a time that there wasn't promoters websites, but up until 2006 that was indeed the case.

New Facebook Group for Old NI Oval Racing Photos
Inspired by the various other pages and groups on facebook dedicated to oval racing from days gone, I thought it was time to get in on the act and create something for old stuff from NI. Ive tried on several occasions through NIF2 to try and get my hands on old stuff to post and share with limited success, but Im hoping that technology has perhaps caught up with my ambitions and where you once had to have a scanner and a degree in computing to get it all downsized and e-mailed through Im banking that these days the vast majority of people have camera phones, digital cameras that you can take a decent photo of an old photo and access to facebook where its easier than it has ever been to upload photos.

Any group is only as good as its members and what they post, so Im just getting the ball rolling here and lets see where it ends up. Im not a huge fan of pages that the admin spends the afternoon adding their entire friends list to a group that they perhaps didnt want to be a part of, so Im inviting you to join it, submit youre photos, youre videos, youre stories of the past and please do share it with people you think would be interested and feel free to approve any new members.

Ideally Id like to keep it to older content, there is plenty of places to post photos of your new Astra rod that youll be doing 2 meetings in this season.

Get joining and get posting!

My Favorite Rods
As with the F2s I sat down to pick out my favourite Rods of all time and it wasnt just as easy as youd think. By restricting it to cars Ive actually seen race it eliminated a considerable amount of what other people would have considered their favourite rods.
