GULFRUN – Fun On The Track

Watching this video makes me want to go outside and race someone, seriously it gets my blood pumping and is a hell of a lot of fun. I can’t wait until GulfRun in Jan, nothing left, it’s around the corner. As usual the car show is in 360 Mall which is going to be a lot of fun.

F1 Evolution In 1 Minute

60 years of F1 design condensed into a minute. Each car is the winning chassis from the respective seasons

If you like F1 then you will love this video, taking the design of every winner from every year since the F1 started until 2012 and putting them in evolution form. Its pretty interesting seeing how things developed and a few things slowly changed in the 80s & 90s, puts things in perspective.

F1 Bahrain Permenantly Cancelled for the 2011 Season

After approving F1 to return to Bahrain for the 2011 we all got excited and were happy that it is coming back. Honestly a lot of people were happy for Bahrain, we want things to settle down and every one to get back to their daily lives. I know that I for one am very much looking forward to visiting Bahrain again for our friends and the track. Bahrain is one of the most accomodating people and country in the Middle East, very nice and very nice people.

Then later in the week, FIA supremo, Bernie Ecclestone, and president Jean Todt decided to go change their mind. They both suddenly announced that Bahrain is out of bounds again. All the teams participating in F1 filed a formal later against reinstating Bahrain to the FIA and mentioned that all that teams won’t be participating in that race since they have gotten warning from their respective governments that their safety can not be guaranteed in Bahrain such as the warning from the US Embassy and UK Embassy, which is very sad since things have very much settled down in Bahrain and its considerably safe, people go about their daily lives normally. I do hope that this exemption is only for this year and hopefully returns for 2012.

Ferrari Festival Japan

I never even knew that Ferrari held a festival in Japan, and 600 Ferraris converge in one location in Japan. All organized by the Italian branch in Japan, I never even knew they had a dealership in Japan let alone a whole branch. So many beautiful cars, from the F1 F399, six FXX’s and even four of the brand new 599XX circling the track. A couple of F40s and F50s thrown into the mix, while a debut for the 599 GTO (which is already all sold out before its production is done) and the 458 Italia. So many beautiful machines in one location in Japan.

Martini girl messes up F1 racers in Monaco

I’m not the biggest fan of F1 racing, but I do respect the drivers and especially the teams. But this probably the funniest thing that I have ever heard the F1 drivers say.

Drivers complained during qualifying that a billboard advertisement located just after Lowes hairpin and before the tunnel was distracting them. The advert was for Martini, the “Italian winemaker founded in 1863 and famous for its iconic vermouth” (according to Luxist), and featured the enchanting gaze of model Jessiqa Pace.

With all the women these men probably see I didn’t think an advert of an attractive woman would have an affect such as this. I think they needed an excuse for the slow lap times.
