End of January 2011
I would like to start today’s comments by asking a simple question, “Where did January 2011 Go ?”.
So much has happened in such a short space of time but I’m sure that 2010 was only two days ago and Christmas was only yesterday. I notice as I get older the time left on this earth appears to be speeding up, is someone trying to get me to the finish line a bit quicker than I anticipated or expected I ask myself.
Anyway, now for some news from the sporting front. Last week I told you all that it was 100 years of celebrating the Monte Carlo Rally to which I’m sure many petrol heads were well aware of anyway. These original racers were the true pioneers of what was eventually to become a huge participating and spectator event to which the birth of F1 Hoverpod® Racing was just one of many motor sports to embrace technology and discover that most people have developed a competitive mentality, even if that is just behind the steering wheel of the family car. In many ways, the this was what inspired the birth of Hoverpod® and the concept to which is gaining so much attention around the world.
Most Motor Sport’s no matter what they are based upon have been slightly taken over by technology and how computers and silicone chips have become too involving and the driver now simply directs and steers the product. The result is that the fund has now been removed and the judgement of the driver has become removed from the equation and replaced by something to which has no soul or personality known as the “software program”. Yes it makes all the right decisions in a millionth of a second and yes it never gets it wrong at any time but so does every other vehicle in the same race, so what happened to the excitement and where did the unpredictability go ?. The same place the fund and drama went also !!!.
F1 Hoverpod® Racing is a 100% totally new idea from the UK which has in many ways gone back in time to research what is lacking and missing in Motor Sport that could be put back and create an exciting and dramatic event by utilising cutting edge technology to create a world beating product but with the clear and critical decision that the driver (known as a pilot) is in control and making all the key decisions and not some piece silicone or soulless computer program, it is 100% the pilots decision what the vehicle and race demands to win the race or what the conditions require in order to take advantage of the situation at the time.
If you are one of those very loyal supporters of Motor Sport, check out F1 Hoverpod® Racing where you will find the experience of a lifetime just waiting for people of all ages and all walks of life to test their reactions and skills with a 100% unrestricted vehicle capable of making the hairs on the back of your neck stand proud in the first 30 seconds whilst you accelerate across and open stretch of land heading at high speed for the water’s edge where it continues at full speed across open water and back to land. “Wow”, how much fun does that sound ?

January 2011
Lets deal firstly with the positive things today. “Happy New Year to All of Our Fans and Supporters” for 2011.
Looking back over 2010 to which was a very eventful year for all the team at F1 Hoverpod® Racing and filled with some very positive progress in so many areas. Top of the list for all the team was the result with the Search Engines and the removal of the abusive comments to which an ongoing investigation into the source of the comments is under way, suffice to say that there is always a footprint and fingerprint with a digital DNA to which we expect a very distinct Reaction at some point.

I note that as we lobbied you all to take a long look at a certain product on the market to which we correctly informed you all had a major fault in the construction and design areas, the effect of these faults was to cause the whole structure to fail at crucial points. Whilst the manufacturer to whom has been distributing this inferior product knows who they are, the problem is that the customer is unaware. However, there has been a Reaction to the comments !!!!!. Yip, as always there is no admission to the problem but as I stipulated in my comments sticking bits of Kevlar over the weak spot will not cure the problem, it will only mask the fault. The problem with this companies Reaction is that the fault was created at the start in the mould. The hull designer to whom makes many claims in order to demonstrate credibility, when asked to substantiate their credentials manages not to produce anything except the story of “I designed the Hovercraft for the James Bond film/movie”. When you ask the film company to substantiate this, they have no recollection of Mr Kip McCullan, although the British Companies house do know of him as he has at least 2 Bankruptcies to his honour as well as a whole string of creditors.

I can now confirm that the Band Aid (sticky patches) saga has ceased. The problem is as this companies Reaction was to stop sticking patches on the weak spots, it has no development funds in which to utilise to produce a new hull and structure and as expected their answer as always is to bury their heads in the sand and hope no one notices. I would also say that the new idea of placing even more polymer resin into the corners only results in making the product stiffer and not stronger. We all remember the days when Volvo ruled the world with a product built like a tank but soon discovered the crumple zones had a far greater effect to which all car manufacturers soon followed. The Reaction to which you should have noted was to stop repeating the fault and re-design a new product with a professional team of specialists, not some fella who claims to know what he’s doing.

F1 Hoverpod® Racing places no restriction on the cost, the emphasis is on producing the very best product on the market from the outset. The design and manufacture team at F1 Hoverpod® Ltd have worked with 4 major research institutes over a period of 3 years to develop a new fibre weave and production methods to re-produce the product to a 100% consistency standard. The design team have worked tirelessly to design a structure to which address’s all the issues relating to wear and durability and the last thing on their minds was cost.
I look forward with optimism that a Reaction from the team whom we nicknamed “The Titanic” as I fear that 2011 may see the end to the poor effort and endless warranty claims to which I understand are rarely if ever settled.

The question to which should cause the best Reaction should be the obvious one. Why is it that F1 Hoverpod® Racing has won the prestigious Sir Christopher Cockerell award twice. Research is a very costly exercise to which F1 Hoverpod® Ltd places much of it’s emphasis upon, the result is that we don’t take anyone’s word for it, we check it for ourselves and make sure of it. The Reaction of old saying is “A fool rushes in where Angels fear to tread”.

A very Happy New Year from all the Team @ F1 Hoverpod® Ltd for 2011.
