Silverstone GP secured

BBC report here.

The report indicates a 17 year deal, with investment to be made on rebuilding the pits and paddock. With a decent length period to develop over, the BRDC can concentrate on getting the best facilities in, something a year-by-year deal made difficult.

(Poor Donnington, though.)

Note to self and colleague

When printing Arabic text, if you haven't installed Arabic text support, then although what is produced will look like Arabic, it will not pass muster with the guys over in Dammam, SA.

Indeed, they will complain that the text is coming out back-to-front.

(My machine has right-to-left support enabled. The machine producing the PDFs did not.)
