Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Maybe the project needs one of these Bill....I will donate transmitter etc. 😂... My race motors from the cars may overheat though, I think these guys use something else. However my competition batteries may be usable.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Don’t think Novie lives in the village now... could be wrong.

From what I have read online, we are about 80% utterly despised with 50% of that figure wishing painful death upon us for ruining every aspect of their life.

Of the remaining 20% of the village I would say half that value are too old to pass comment on social media but hate us nonetheless.

The last half of that value perhaps are indifferent with a slight sqew toward liking us.

And I said I wasn’t going to pass anymore comment on this thread 😣

Although I am hated by association, I would like to send my fondest love to the good people of Coniston.

Love conquers all !

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Each to their own, all opinions welcomed and discussed fairly. However I will abstain from hence forth as I personally feel we are raking over old ground again, we need to look forwards now instead of constantly backwards. The crud about Donald would have like this or that, or said this or that is n...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Well said Ian.... as soon as we know what went wrong we can disseminate the info, problem is, officially we don't know what went wrong, we can only speculate (which doesn't help) perhaps worth wrapping this thread up (in my humble opinion) starting a new one titled "2019 operations" :) rather be pos...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

There are a lot of frustrated people out there, the good residents of Coniston being many of them, I have watched public media with a keen eye since the news broke, everyone is asking the same questions and making the same noises and the dissapointment is clear indeed. With regards to my own feeling...

We should all hold judgement until the BEWG have broken silence to explain what has happened.


Patience is a virtue I guess, hopefully someone will be along shortly to say what was what at that end of the organising.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

All very sudden, but I hope all is well at Coniston, we don’t know why the plug has been pulled at this stage, but for all we know, it could be for any number of reasons.

I am sure someone will make contact in due course.
