31 July 2011: As you will know if you've dipped into the site in the last couple of years, I haven't updated it since the 2009 season. Other things in life have meant I haven't been able to commit the time required to keep it up to date, but I can't quite bring myself to delete it. I still use the accumulated stats and info myself as a useful resource of F1 info, and I hope you too will find something here of interest.
The name "Roro" was gifted to me by the daughter of a friend (hi Sophie!) before she could get her tongue around Carolyn. I've become rather fond of it over the years so it's as Roro I welcome you to my website :-)
Why Formula 1?
If you've stumbled across my site by accident, you won't know me from Adam and can be forgiven for not knowing that my main obsession in life is FORMULA 1!
If you're now sitting there thinking "what's Formula 1", you have my deepest sympathy ... you simply don't know what you're missing! So treat this as a learning experience and have a look around anyway :-)
For the already converted, you need no further introduction than the brief summary below of what can be found here. Enjoy!
F1 Info Driver Line-Up for current and past seasons, Driver and Team Profiles, Circuit Information, Race Calendar, Race Weekend Timetable and a summary of FIA Rule Changes.
F1 Stats Qualifying and Race Results, Championship Standings, Team Mate Comparisons, Qualifying, Finishing and Reliability records - updated after every race, Fastest Laps, All Time records and Driver Ages.
Features Photographs and articles covering visits to the Canadian, British and Belgian GPs in 2002, the Canadian and US GPs in 2004, a Silverstone test session, an Open Day at the Toyota F1 Factory, the 2001 CART race at Rockingham and the 2006 Goodwood Festival of Speed; an account of my short, but oh so sweet, career as an F1 driver; and for those whose interest in F1 is not all-consuming, trips to Peru, Egypt, Turkey, East Africa and Botswana.
Links I try to maintain a comprehensive list of links to the official websites of drivers, teams and circuits, as well as other F1 content that catches my eye and some more general, non-F1 links that others may find helpful. If there's a site you'd like to see included, please Add a Link here
Gallery Some half-way decent shots from Silverstone 2001 provided the initial material for this page! I also dug out some of the old prints ... not quite as sharp, but they're my F1 history! As the site has developed however, most of the new photographic content has found its way into the Features section, so make sure to check that out too.
Guestbook Every site should have one! So far the general concensus seems to be that I'm a nerd, but I'm not taking it personally and look forward to receiving more feedback in due course.

Contact Me I'm always happy to receive feedback, so if you spot any errors, or if there's anything you'd like to see here that I haven't already covered, please get in touch. You can also find me (from November 2022) on Mastodon.
