    Geez,

    The site looks great. Look at the attached brochure they offer. All the cities, all the media exposure???

    RARA has been at it for 50 years and then these guys come along and they have a site like this right at the start

    This F1 series will be International, South Africa, Korea, etc. I say Reno needs to get a date to have them here as part of our Air Races???

    Television coverage in over 100 countries, crap we can't even get it in our own??

    Anybody home at RARA???

    Just watched it and I agree 110% Dude...the video clip is full of copyrighted material from a variety of sources and one has to wonder if they even bothered to seek a license to use it or just pirated the footage.

    Not prejudging here but something doesn't seem right on the surface. Breitling footage, "Air Racers" footage, not to mention what seems to be a lot of footage and/or images taken of the net. And why mix all the footage of Unlimited, T-6, Sport, etc. Isn't this just F1?

    Hope they did their homework on that but from the sounds of it, it seems they took the easy way out.

    Well said, Dude. Well said. Posted many an image and video slideshows on the net and for the most part, folks are repsectful of the copyright. But every once in a while...

    And I'm shocked...shocked...to hear you say Shifty occassionally talks too long in the briefing!

    And their reply is exactly as I predicted.

    "Hi Tom, we appreciate your message. We only use footage that is given to us rights-free from the source or from a producer that authorizes it. If this was in our archive I can assure you we had permission. It may have been that the editor we hired for that video took it without your knowledge, for which we would be sorry. That editor is not part of our organization and we do not use him anymore. If you require, we can remove the video or your footage from it, with our apologies."

    The air race group didn't edit it, they farmed it out to someone who clearly doesn't care.. Just figured I would let everyone know.

    This is the video I was talking about.
