A low-tech so­lu­tion

F1 Racing (UK) - - INBOX - James Arm­strong Powell River, Canada

I think leaf blow­ers are a noisy use­less abom­i­na­tion. A friend re­cently bought one at a garage sale and uses it to blow-dry his mo­tor­cy­cle af­ter wash­ing it. Now that ac­tu­ally makes sense.

The F1 link here is: why not have a few high-pow­ered leaf blow­ers at ev­ery cor­ner mar­shal sta­tion so mar­shals can quickly and ef­fec­tively blow car­bon-fi­bre frag­ments off the track sur­face? It would def­i­nitely be quicker than a broom, and a sharp cor­ner worker could clean off a whack of as­phalt in short or­der.

De­pend­ing on the horse­power of the leaf blower, you might have to strap them onto the backs of your more ‘Cly­des­dale-like’ cor­ner mar­shals – or you could pull the cord and see your cor­ner worker lift off and fly over the grand­stand.

Just try­ing to help!
