    Report on wing cars in German TV

    Hi,
    German knowledge show "Galileo" yesterday showed a ten minute report on wing car racing. In their "truth or fake" part they asked if the cars shown in a clip form the 2010 EC in Helsinki really would go that fast. They start on a carrera track for comparison. Later they switch to Peter Frobel's Bluekingclub shooting one of the G27 Sprayglue events.
    Language is German of course. There are some quite impressive animations showing how a wing car works.
    Enjoy.

    I can't read the German - but I'm guessing that it says that the content is not available from my country. (I get this from practically any American TV show content).

    I'm wondering if it is just me (Philippines) - or if others can see it from the USA. DARN! sounds like it might be a good piece of TV exposure for our hobby, and I would love to see it (even if in German).

    Sounds like it is a result of even more reaction to the YouTube video of the Finland Worlds that went "viral" - I've seen that video re-posted and shared on dozens of non-slot car web sites and blogs, including many 1/1 car blogs, RC forums, etc.

    Here's what it says:

    Wir bitten um Entschuldigung!
    Es ist interner Fehler aufgetreten.
    Dracken Sie F5, um die Seite neu zu laden.
    (Fehlercode #15)

    Which babelfish translates to:

    We ask for apology! Internal error arose. Dracken it F5, in order to load the side again. (Error code #15)

    Sorry,

    Didn't think of something like a licensing problem.

    One of these days I'll have to set up to block my IP address, so I can view TV shows and other blocked sites...

    I still can't figure out the logic... they block overseas viewers to try to prevent pirating??? And all it does is encourage people to pirate shows more.

    Typical idiot "suits" mentality.

    If it gets re-posted on YouTube - then everyone can see it...

    Otherwise... if someone (in Germany) can download it, maybe it can be re-posted so we can all see it (until we get caught).

    I bookmarked it and will check it out if/when I get around to blocking my IP address one of these days.

    Thanks for posting it - at least our German readers will be able to see it now!

    I got the same error message when trying to access this video yesterday. But today I was able to see the video.

    And yes! It is a very nicely done video!

    Thanks for the link Christian.

    That is a very well done piece of coverage. I wish I could understand more of it, but I can get the gist of most of it from the video, and there's enough English sprinkled in to follow as well.

    Excellent slow speed video and a lot of detailed information. Even some very cool CGI!!!

    Great exposure for the hobby!!!
