Keith over at F1Fanatic has worked very hard since the site’s inception at building what has become in my estimation the definitive english-language Formula 1 resource. He provides up-to-the-minute information on every event, story lines on drivers, major players in the industry and extremely in-depth statistics on tire strategy and more!
Since the beginning the service has been completely free, and they have been running ads to support the costs associated with so much traffic. Recently Keith elected to launch a premium, ad-free service for a paltry £1per month.
All considered this is a steal of a deal to browse advertisement free and supports a passionate, dedicated guy who just wants us to all love the sport that much more. A true petrolhead who deserves a little slice of your hard-earned cash. Consider supporting him today, here:
Yes, I know, a yellow Ferrari. But “Rosso Corsa” you cry in protest. But just look at this thing:
With 45 additional horsepower on tap thanks to some custom software upgrades provided by the German tuners, there should be no end to the ass-hauling this Ferrari was already plenty capable of.
This particular car sits on 12.5″ wheels out back with 335 tires! I can only imagine the dent that would put in a wallet.
Thanks to Seriouswheels for the pics and stats as always!
It’s finally here! The return of Formula 1 to my home country since 2007 in Indianapolis. With a brand-spanking new track and facility with state of the art everything this is certainly shaping up to ba a favorite for drivers, teams and spectators alike. The track layout looks to be neat as well, incorporating elements from other tracks on the calendar. The designers also consulted circuit building/designing legends like Tilke to ensure no detail went overlooked:
Look at that inclined first corner! 133 ft of elevation change! This is no flat circuit no sir! Should be an exciting watch but let’s not kid around, Vettel is going to walk away with this one and probably the championship. Sorry kids, it looks as if he’s setting up a dynasty here…
Enjoy the race!
Jack Beckman, an accomplished NHRA funny car driver experienced a catastrophic failure while making a competitive pass in California during this seasons final event in Pomona, California. Fortunately, every safety procedure and technology the NHRA has in place or has mandated seemed to work perfectly. The body blew off the chassis, the parachutes deployed to slow the car from nearly full speed and the safety-safari was deployed rapidly to ensure the well-being of the driver.
Can it get any better than that?
This little Toyota is really pushing it to the limit!
Speedhunter Larry Chen braved the cold and the wet to visit Autopolis, situated in Ōita Prefecture, Japan hosting the Super Taikyu series. From little beefed-up compacts up to GT-spec racers, there seems to be something for everyone with Super Taikyu.
