    For those who are interested into the technical side of F1, this might not be news to you, especially for you Imhotep.

    Way back in 1997, Bishop Technology group collaborated with Mercedes-Ilmor to develop a cam-less engine with the intention of implementing this new, compact and efficient engine design in their F1 engines, until of course FIA banned it in 2003. By that time they have already spent 6 years designing and refining the concept.

    Using this design alone shaved off 16kg from a V10 engine because the cylinder head are very compact, this also reduce the C of G of the engine.

    Yes, Sam Michael told us during a speech that Mosley is turning F1 into NASCA. Can anyone stop him?

    Anyway, do you have more information on the magnetic valve gear system. I read a few years ago Lotus is developing something similar.
