    Wow that set is HOT! ;)
    Seriously though that is a unique item for display. Never seen the boots in such pristine condition. Looks like they were just made.

    Sorry, no Carl, it was my bad sense humour about different coloured knits from other threads. Your kit looks really cool, but I know zero about F1 gear so ignore in the context of your great looking setup, and apologies.

    Cheers

    Thanks Carl.

    Kiddies commitments prevent VLV this year, but there’s always next year:)

    Looks like it was a blast this year with the Stray cats playing ?
    One of our local bands from up here in the north east was playing too ! The Neutronz .
    Doggy commitments stop us from doing anything !! :D:confused:

    Yes I’d have liked to see the Stray Cats.

    I’m quite a fan of The Neutronz! We’ve seen them a couple of times at the shakedown and last year at the May Hemsby. It’s strange they played in Luton a few months ago which is about 8 or 9 miles from us but we missed them! Oh well.

    Cheers

    Great bunch of lads !
    I digress from the subject !! sorry !,

    Just as a matter of interest , the Type F1 suit shown is from the first contract awarded in December 1941 contract is thought to have been completed in November 1942. The contract was for Suit gloves and shoes for a total cost of $2218K . This was a dual contract , ( A dual contract is one that carries 2 contract numbers, one of which was generally a lend lease award, only one contract number however appears in the list .)
    Procurement cost for the 3 items of the set was $46
    making the total contract for 48,217 sets (?)
