Formula One, "F1" racing is one of the most exciting, and expensive, sports in the world. Governed by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the stakes are high for drivers, constructors and sponsors alike and the economic effect of the sport across the globe is significant. Divided into two World Championships (for drivers and constructors), Grands Prix are usually held on purpose-built circuits, however, some races are run over closed public roads. The Grand Prix de Pau in 1901 was the first race to be given a name that is synonymous with motoring racing the world over today. On 26 June 1906, an event near Le Mans in France with a starting field of 32 cars, raced a 65 mile (105 km) triangular course over two days. From this point on, the Grand Prix in Le Mans signalled the start of an era, and the sport celebrated its centenary in 2006. This A-Z gives an insight into the drivers, constructors, the dangers and the excitement of one of the world's most renowned sports.
THE MIND OF A GRAND PRIX CHAMPION by craig lock "Racing is a metaphor for life (life's journey)." Tags (key words): Grand Prix drivers, motor racing, Formula 1, champions, the Zone, beyond the Zone, mind, mindpower "The driver is expected to explore the inner places of his desire by taking everything to this limit...to translate it into a sublime peak only he can reach; but the trouble is they're all doing it.... on a narrow ribbon of track, together." july 16, 2016 "All drivers are united by a passion for what they do. They express it in different ways, as you would expect, because they are fiercely independent and ambitious men drawn from every continent and every background. But the message transcends everything." from http: //www.grandprixchampion.wordpress.com and http: //www.grandprixdrivermyblog.wordpress.com "The driver is expected to explore the inner places of his desire by taking everything to this limit...to translate it into a sublime peak only he can reach; but the trouble is they're all doing it.... on a narrow ribbon of track, together." - fine writing by Christopher Hilton in his revealing book Inside the Mind of a Grand Prix Driver from http: //www.beyondboundarieslimits.wordpress.com and https: //www.amazon.com/Zone-Beyond-Part-Two-Writing-ebook/dp/B01IEHAEZ6 https: //www.amazon.com/Zone-Beyond-Part-Two-Writing/dp/1535285133 No matter your field of endeavour, YOU can be a champion in (of) your own life! from http: //www.youcanbeachampion.wordpress.com "Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let's see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials...and become ever more champions in (and of) their own lives." picture from http: //www.beyondboundarieslimits.wordpress.com ABOUT Craig is a sports "fanatic"* and "passionate petrol-head," who has been studying the human mind, "the last unexplored frontier," as well as what makes champion racing drivers for most of his life. from from http: //www.craiglockbooks.com (1998) "Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion.

Grandma's Poetry Book charts the nostalgic journey from birth to teens as seen through the eyes of a grandmother. It captures the many facets of those fleeting, easily forgotten moments as the grandchildren grow. Touching and funny in turn, the poems resonate with a grandmother's love for her grandchildren. Inspired by A A Milne and the bouncy verse of Pam Ayres, Grandma's Poetry Book was inspired by the birth of Di Castle's first grandchild. It has been illustrated by Denise Horn - whose sketches capture the special bond between grandparents and their families.
Deux fois quatre recits, qui peuvent se lire independamment, mais qui forment aussi un tout, une progression, un portrait, peut-etre. Celui d'un homme qui, de texte en texte, n'est jamais tout a fait le meme, ni vraiment completement un autre. Peut-on se souvenir autrement que dans le sentiment de la perte ? Peut-on evoquer ce qui n'est plus sans la douleur de cette perte ? Que faut-il abandonner d'hier, et a quoi faut-il renoncer demain, pour vivre, simplement ? Et pour dire ma vie, quel est le prix a payer ?"
