When Jay gave me the tour of his garage the Rocket was right next to the F1, he skipped right over the F1 and went straight to the Rocket
Rocket is very neat, he took the body panels off to see the mechy bits, it's quite clever. I had brought the Caterham so he got a bit inspired and fired up the Rocket and followed me out for a bit. Wish we could have gone for a ride in the canyons, would have loved to see how it goes

Sorry I missed you too... I got there early, had a drink or two with some colleagues, stared at the valet line, and left after Ron Dennis spoke.
My story runs tomorrow on Hooniverse.
I LOVED when he basically told everyone to shut the **** up so he could speak... awesome.
I quite enjoyed Ron's comments. He seemed very proud to tell the story - albeit a basic one - of McLaren's many successes. He certainly had my undivided attention. My guest for the evening captured a video of what he had to say. Keeping in mind that he was a bit rattled by the lack of respect being shown for him in the first 60 seconds or so, you can watch it here if you are interested:
Looking forward to your piece on Hooniverse tomorrow Jeff.
Just happened today.

A search team converged on the area and found an 18-year-old man dead and another man injured after noon on Saturday. The vehicle the men were in had plunged 500 feet over the side of Angeles Crest Highway near Mile Marker 41.
Vigen Sarkisyan, 18, of Tujunga, died.
The sheriff's Montrose Search and Rescue Team and Emergency Services Detail arrived at the scene about 2:35 p.m., officials said.
A sheriff's rescue helicopter lowered a paramedic in a litter into the ravine and hoisted two men into the aircraft.
The two injured men from Pasadena were between 18 and 20-years-old. They were treated at a local hospital for major trauma injuries, officials said.
