 DEAR RACEFAN,

WELCOME TO THE EMLYN F1 CATALOGUE!!!!!!

I HAVE BEEN A LIFE-LONG FAN OF THE F.I.A FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP EVER SINCE I WATCHED IT FOR THE FIRST TIME - MONACO 1986.  THERE WAS AN INTERESTING  ACCIDENT, LATE IN THE RACE BETWEEN MARTIN BRUNDLE`S TYRRELL AND PATRICK TAMBAY`S LOLA WHICH I THOUGHT WAS SPECTACULAR.  I WAS 9 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME & I`VE BEEN HOOKED ON THE SPORT EVER SINCE.

 AT HOME I HAVE OVER 875 FORMULA 1 TAPES, AND IT IS NOW THE LARGEST F1 VIDEOTAPE COLLECTION IN THE U.K.  THEREFORE IN DECEMBER 1999, I HAD THE IDEA THAT IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR OTHER PEOPLE AROUND THE GLOBE TO ENJOY THE THRILLING ACTION THAT F1 CAN PROVIDE.  IT ALSO GIVES ME A CHANCE TO WATCH SOME OF THE TAPES AGAIN THAT ORDINARILY I DON`T HAVE TIME TO SEE....

NOW, IN FEBRUARY 2003....WE HAVE SOLD TAPES TO OVER 100 CLIENTS IN 20 COUNTRIES FROM ALL OVER THE PLANET........THE SUCCESS (SO FAR) OF THIS SMALL ENTERPRISE IS DOWN TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE ENQUIRED ABOUT TAPES.

 PRICING OF TAPES

THE PRICES FOR THE VIDEOS ARE AS FOLLOWS..........

1. GRAND PRIX = 9 / (US)$13.50  FOR EACH VIDEOTAPE
2. SEASON REVIEWS = 5 / $8 FOR EACH REVIEW
3. VIDEO BIOGRAPHY = 5 / $8 FOR EACH PROGRAMME
4. F1 ON TELEVISION = 5 / $8 FOR PROGRAMMES OVER 40 MINS....3 / $5 IF UNDER 40 MINS....

I CAN RECORD THE TAPES IN STANDARD OR LONG PLAY - MY PERSONAL PREFERENCE IS STANDARD PLAY BECAUSE THE PICTURE QUALITY IS SLIGHTLY BETTER.  AS FOR THE VIDEO FORMATS, I CAN NOW RECORD IN BOTH PAL & NTSC!

I WON`T EVEN CHARGE YOU FOR THE FORMAT CONVERSION.   I AM AWARE THAT IN NORTH AMERICA THERE ARE PLACES THAT CHARGE HUGE FEES FOR CHANGING PAL TAPES INTO NTSC.......I REFUSE TO DO THAT.  THE PRICES FOR THE TAPE & THE SHIPPING IS ALL THAT YOU PAY!

SPECIAL DEALS FROM THE TAPEMASTER!

NTSC FORMAT (USA, CANADA, JAPAN, TAIWAN)..........FOR THE 1997-2003 RACE WEEKENDS,   STARTING WITH BRAZIL 1997 I CAN OFFER "THE LAST 8 HRS PACKAGE" IN EP MODE FOR THE COST OF 1 TAPE.

ON THIS TAPE YOU WILL GET THE LAST 8 HOURS 31 MINS OF THE F1 WEEKEND.   ON THIS TAPE YOU WILL GET....... SATURDAY MORNING PRACTICE PART 2, QUALIFYING, SUNDAY WARM-UP, THE RACE & "GP EXTRA" ALL LIVE AND UN-INTERRUPTED

PAL FORMAT (EUROPE, AUSTRALIA, INDIA).........I CAN OFFER YOU BASICALLY THE SAME DEAL AS FOR THE NTSC USERS ABOVE (LAST 8 HOURS OF THE F1 WEEKEND, FROM BRAZIL 1997 ONWARDS).....BUT THE TIMINGS ARE DIFFERENT BETWEEN PAL & NTSC FORMATS, MEANING THAT YOU`LL GET THE LAST 8 HRS 07 MINS OF THE F1 WEEKEND.  SO YOU`LL GET THE LAST 15 MINS OF THE SAT MORNING PRACTICE, THEN QUAL, SUNDAY WARM-UP, THE RACE & "GP EXTRA" LIVE AND UN-INTERRUPTED.

EUROPEAN CLIENTS - THE ABOVE DEAL COSTS 8 FOR EACH TAPE (LAST 8 HRS)

REST OF THE WORLD - THE ABOVE DEAL COSTS 10 / $16 (USA).  THE ADDITIONAL COST IS FOR THE SHIPPING......(SEE BELOW...)

SHIPPING

POSTAGE AND PACKING IS FREE WITHIN EUROPE...I WILL DEAL WITH THAT.

FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE EUROPE, THEN I`M AFRAID THAT I HAVE TO CHARGE A SMALL POSTAGE FEE - TYPICALLY 2 / $3 FOR EACH TAPE THAT I SEND OUT...........SO IT IS BENEFICIAL (FOR THOSE OUTSIDE EUROPE) TO MAKE USE OF THE LONG PLAY OR EP (NTSC) OPTION.

PAYMENTS

 IF YOU ARE IN THE UK YOU CAN DO THIS BY CASH, POSTAL ORDERS(NOT CROSSED), CHEQUE OR VIA THE BANKING SYSTEM - "BANK TRANSFER"....IF YOU WISH TO USE THIS OPTION THEN PLEASE REQUEST THE BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS FROM ME.

IF YOU ARE ANYWHERE OUTSIDE THE UK, THEN I CAN ACCEPT PAYMENTS IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS......

CASH (I CAN TAKE THE FOLLOWING CURRENCIES IN CASH - US DOLLARS, CANADIAN DOLLARS OR AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS, BESIDES OF COURSE BRITISH POUNDS)

INTENATIONAL MONEY ORDERS (MUST BE PAID IN BRITISH POUNDS)

BANK TRANSFER (KNOWN AS A WIRE, AND GOES THROUGH THE BANKING SYSTEM)

ANY CHEQUES / POSTAL ORDERS / INTERNATIONAL MONEY ORDERS SHOULD BE

PAYABLE TO "Emlyn Hughes", OR "Louise Randall", EITHER NAME IS FINE.

CREDIT CARDS

PAYMENTS CAN NOW BE MADE BY CREDIT CARD, VIA THE PAYPAL.COM WEBSITE.  THIS NOW MEANS THAT THE TRANSACTIONS CAN TAKE PLACE IN SECONDS IF YOU HAVE A VISA OR MASTERCARD.  FOR SECURITY, THIS IS ALSO A LOT SAFER THAN SENDING MONIES THROUGH THE POSTAL SYSTEM.  THE CREDIT CARD FACILITY IS OPEN TO CLIENTS IN ALL COUNTRIES.  IF YOU WISH TO PAY VIA CREDIT CARD, AND ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH PAYPAL.COM THEN YOU WILL NEED TO DO SO.  THE WEBSITE IS ON A SECURE  SERVER, AND THE REGISTRATION PROCESS IS QUICK AND EASY.

FUTURE ADDITIONS TO THE COLLECTION

THE FUTURE IS LOOKING GOOD.   THE CATALOGUE IS UPDATED AT LEAST TWICE PER MONTH SO ALWAYS BE SURE TO HAVE A RECENT COPY BY REQUESTING IT FROM ME.   NEW TAPES TO ARRIVE IN SUMMER 2003.

ALL PRACTICE SESSIONS THAT I`M MISSING LIVE COVERAGE FR 1998 WILL ARRIVE HERE SUMMER 2003.    FRIDAY MORNING, FRIDAY AFTERNOON, SAT MORNING PRACTICE & SUNDAY MORNING WARM-UP FOR ALL 17 EVENTS IN 1998, MEANING ANOTHER 34 TAPES COMING SOON.

BETWEEN 1950-1960, THE INDIANAPOLIS 500 WAS CLASSED AS PART OF THE FORMULA 1 SEASON.  OF COURSE NON OF THE GRAND PRIX DRIVERS WENT OVER FOR THE EVENT, AS THERE WAS USUALLY A GRAND PRIX HAPPENING IN EUROPE ON THE SAME WEEKEND.   NEVERTHELESS, THE INDY 500 COUNTED FOR POINTS IN THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, AND I FEEL THAT IT`S RIGHT THAT WE SHOULD HAVE THESE RACES TOO.   I HAVE LOCATED ALL THE INDY 500s 1950-1960 THAT I`M LOOKING FOR (EXCEPT 1951), AND THESE WILL BE ARRIVING SOON TOO.

HERE BELOW IS THE LIST OF RACES THAT I`M STRUGGLING WITH..........

1984 - BRAZIL

OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION

FOR THE RECORDING OF THE TAPES I USE S-VHS VIDEO RECORDERS, SO YOU CAN BE SURE OF GETTING A GOOD SOLID QUALITY ON YOUR TAPES.    OF COURSE, I WOULD BE LYING IF I SAID THAT EVERY TAPE IN THE COLLECTION IS PERFECT...........BUT IF THERE IS ANY PROBLEM, BE IT SOUND OR PICTURE ETC. - THEN I WILL MAKE SURE TO LET YOU KNOW BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR FINAL DECISION.

WHERE YOU SEE "----------------" IN THE COMMENTARY LANGUAGE.......I GOT THESE PROGRAMMES DIRECT FROM THE EUROPEAN DIGITAL F1 CHANNELS (BERNIE-VISION) IN GLORIOUS NATURAL SOUND (HENCE NO COMMENTARY)

I WILL ALWAYS TRY TO DO MY BEST FOR THE PEOPLE WHOM I AM DEALING WITH AS I  UNDERSTAND THAT I AM DEALING WITH OTHER PEOPLE`S MONEY...

TRADING AND EXCHANGES

TRADING / EXCHANGES.........I AM DEFINITELY WILLING TO DO THIS.  IF YOU HAVE ANY "LIVE" RACES, OR DOCU PROGRAMMES THAT I DO NOT HAVE IN THE LISTS, THEN I WANT THESE PROGRAMMES.        TRADING IS NOT A PROBLEM.

OTHER MOTORSPORTS SERIES ON VIDEO

I CAN ALSO RECORD THE FOLLOWING MOTORSPORTS BY REQUEST IN BOTH PAL & NTSC.......

F.I.A INTERNATIONAL FORMULA 3000 CHAMPIONSHIP "LIVE" (SUPPORTING THE F1)

F.I.A WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP (SAME DAY COVERAGE)

NORTHERN LIGHTS INDY RACING LEAGUE "LIVE"
