Wanted...video/dvd of the 2009 Australian GrandPrix race 20090329

Sunday, April 5, 2009 by Jafo | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

As many of you may know, I'm an FIA/FIM Motor Race Official, working the Australian Grands Prix, the MotoGPs and the World Superbike events.

Each year I record them, as when you 'work them' you get to see one [or two] corners REALLY well ....but not the actual whole thing, so although I was there....I didn't see much of it, really.

Australia is just going through the transition to Digital TV broadcasts, and a dedicated Sports channel [One] was setup and its first real event was the 2009 AGP.

Cleverly, although they managed [and I recorded] the first 2 days events....about 7 hours each, they managed to transmit a station identification on the race day.....for 7 hours....and coverage actually started with the post-race wrap-up.  Bit bloody useless.

This year [2009] was my 25th consecutive International Australian Formula One race ...so was fairly 'significant' [to me], yet I ain't got it.....


If anyone out there does have it [preferably in an English-language transmission] and can manage to send a copy to me [DVD or VHS], not only will I be eternally grateful, but I'll pay for an Object Desktop or Wincustomize Subscription/update as a thankyou.  [first in best-dressed]...


I'm sure it's all my fault...for not replaying it sooner and finding the issue in time to possibly have chased it up on replay/repeat somewhere.

Jafo goes back into his corner to kick himself for being an even bigger twit than usual.....


BTW, not only was it my 25th Inter AGP ....it was my 30th consecutive AGP [there are only about half a dozen of us out of the thousand or so Officials who have done all 30 consecutively].

Sorry I can't help with the recordings Jafo, but congrats on your accomplishments as an official.

Paul you may want to ask that question here and I think you will get a response.

Formula 1 Forum

There is a F1 Media section that is pretty good and could be the right place to ask. I'm almost sure someone got the whole thing recorded for it was on several live internet tv channels.

Hope you find it !
