So, here’s the Motorsport Question of the Day - Do you want to know the details on how the ‘chefs prepare the feast’ [eg; the facts behind the Business, Marketing, Rules-Making of Racing] OR are you happy just enjoying the ‘meal’ / watching the Racing?
This Nissan Motorsport / Darren Cox interview is ‘stunning’ in so many ways! I want to assume the Automotive News reporter was asking the questions in a certain style for a reason [or is the Automotive-Reporting Industry THIS detached from Auto Racing?].
2015 starts now. As does the pre-season focus on your racing plans and preparations. Compiled here are more-than-a-few videos from 2 years of /ShakeDown University Racing Skills Training.
Racing is never simple. That's an old adage that always rings true. But even in a series that's relatively easy to get into, like the Pirelli World Challenge, the amount of thought that goes into being the slightest bit faster than everyone else takes skill. As you can see here.
WTCC racer, Tom Coronel, gives his explanation of Slipstreaming for Qualifying. OK. But, then with everyone thinking the same, watch Idiocracy rule. THIS is what racing has become?
/DRIVE showcased their Top 10 Most-Watched 2012 Videos. Here are the 10 ShakeDown auto racing shows that were LEAST viewed. You decide if you made the right choice ignoring them [as you were busy digesting drifting, behind-the-wheel giggling, or just giving zero-f**ks].
In my opinion, there are 2 classes of racing enthusiasts. Those that know and respect the virtues of Jim Clark. And those that don't know 'what the hell I'm talking about'.
Always a big fan of Max Papis. Here he pedals a NASCAR Nationwide road-course race car and shows us all how to rev-match shifts, gear-match brake-zones and heel-toe [starting at 2:11 in the vid]. Hoping Alexander Rossi takes notes.
The question to you all is simple - Does Danica deserve the accolades for her empowered stature in Motorsport?
OK, now that NASCAR is about to get hit with a flurry of "The Call" comments about Danica's Daytona 500 Pole, damning them to 'fixing results better than a Soccer-loving Singapore shadow-figure', or too many carboys commenting that real racing is "too professional / too manipulated", and / or blah-blah-freakin'-blah…
Just discovered what the American Le Mans Series will do AFTER the 2014 consolidation with Grand-Am!!
Oh, mistyped A-L-M-S? Nevermind.......
Cold winter months usually conjure up thoughts of snow, log fires crackling and putting up your feet... Not in Formula One, where teams are hard at work developing the cars to shave hundredths of a second from their lap time in order to battle for next year's title.
