    Race Department (fixed) is acting strange for me in chrome, zoom is offset to the right side
    image 1 - 100% zoom

    Image 2 - 150% zoom

    Also the double adverts on the left both showing the same advert looks kinda odd

    The off-center positioning is intentional in widescreen views. We're looking at possible options for compromise that allow the left sidebar but with the content more towards the centre as people were used to in the right sidebar style.

    As for the ads, that's out of our control. Google decide which ads to place depending on various factors such as the advertisers bid, the content on the page, the geographic location of the user etc etc.
     
  3. The site really is looking very lopsided at the moment, not particularly good to view and many are not liking the way everything is squashed over ot one side. Is this format staying for good?
