    Description
    Thrilling and addictive, Formula One is among the world's most popular sports. Over eight million viewers in the UK alone watch it on television during Grand Prix weekends. Behind the sport is an intensely secretive industry, which invests millions of pounds in design and technology every year. For the first time the public will be able to discover the design innovations at the heart of Formula One in a touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London. A series of design stories explains the aerodynamics of the chassis and cockpit; the power generated by the engine, gearbox and fuel; and the advances in suspension, brakes and tyres which determine the driversí ability to control their cars at extraordinarily high speed and often perilous conditions.

    Actual F1 cars used in the various races will be exhibited- Cooper T51, Brabham B24, Williams FW14B and the Renault R2

    If you want to be safe in museums, bring both SLR and PnS.
    Last time i was using SLR in Singapore Art Museum and got stopped by security.
    So I kept my SLR and changed to PnS... no problem... shot everything, did not get stopped.
    So this is my museum photography strategy lah.
    The best photographer is one who is inspired by the innate nature of his subjects.

    Took pic a number of time in National Musuem and even in the event hall, so far no problem but no flash allow.

    In fact, they just place a sign around the lobby at the rear stating "photo taking encourage, just bring your own cam" During my shoot there last week the guard ask if i got permit. But when I point to the signboard, he just walk away......WTF wrong with him???
