There now follows a press release from Ørjan Andreasen, Viking Racing's chief technical geek who could, if he wanted to, run the entire F1RMGP telemetry system on a ZX81. You are all under strict instructions to read this in a very musical voice.

Put it this way, it's what I'd do, and what I have done when external HD enclosures have failed, or when my laptop showed worrying signs that its internal hard disk was about to die.
So, who else has F1 Challenge? I don't, otherwise I'd have volunteered to help.
