Quote from Jaguar Racing's 2003 launch press release...

"It is the first time Cosworth has raced with a 90-degree engine layout..." - :mad:

Hey, Doug:

Were those guys born stupid or did they study?

Or are they getting Alzheimers & can't remember the original 90 DEGREE COSWORTH FORD V-8 ?

Or don't press flacks read history?

Or team principals proofread the releases?

Mercy!

Look - these posts take infinitely longer to delete than they do to post - the above garbage was intended for the thread on 'Autosport's 50 top cars, NOT for this thread at all.

While the operators behind the scenes try to solve the confoundmalgorithims glitching up the works...

I found this all very funny that...

I assumed Doug was single-handedly trying to apologize in each and every thread where his lack-luster keyboard wielding counterparts had left their collective brains in the dumper.
