There are race cars then there are RACECARs. Some racecars are placed in the upper echelon of sporting history. Your 917s, 956s, GT40s, Lotus 49, Jag D-Type etc. In my opinion the F1 GTR is one of those cars. Not since the early 70’s has a car so closely based on a production based car […]
F1 is just a few months away. The constructors will be unveiling their cars all throughout the next two weeks. So i decided to post these concepts for the 2015 season my Humber College Industrial Design professor Bruce Thomson. He’s ok I guess. More of his work can be found HERE.
Last thing I want to do is stroke his ego. But I’ll give Bruce Thomson, my teacher from college, some credit. He’s mega talented. These are some F1 concepts that he’s created. The McLaren is top notch. More of his work here.
The FIA announced the other day that the season finale race will now award double points. DAFUQ? No don’t give single points for pole or fastest lap, let’s double the points for the shit show that is Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi. They also scheduled the American GP (in Texas) the same day as the NASCAR […]
Unless you live under a rock, you’ll know that Sebastian Vettel was crowned 4 time F1 Champ last weekend. It was an amazing achievement. One that I think put him ahead of Senna (flame suit on), but still behind Schumacher, Fangio, Clark and Stewart. I’m sure at only 26 he’ll win a few more. […]
Traction control has been banned for a few years in F1. Now it seems Redbull has found a loophole. Through manipulating torque curves and the partial firing of cylinders. Insiders believe the Austrian outfit has curbed the TC ban. As an F1 fanatic its this stupid stuff that’s so interesting.
Racing movies mostly suck. The two standouts being Grand Prix and Le Mans. While not exactly great films, in the realms of auto racing in film. They are the best. I hope Rush can be mentioned with those two in the future. I still have a soft spot for Days of Thunder though. Let’s not […]
Not sure how I feel about this. It seems as though Vettel went against team orders to pass Webber. But I’m here to watch great racing. I think Webber would have done the same given the chance. It’s just drivers being drivers. And IMO, much better than Mercedes’ jog to the end. Edit* The FIA […]

I’ll take this view over a window any day.
I’ve found the Autoshow to provide great photo opportunities. Unfortunately, the background ruins a lot of the shots. I’ve tried to go for up close photos to fix that. Practice, practice, practice. I honestly didn’t think I’d be uploading my own photos as much as I have lately. More to come!!

All sorts of styles. To each his own. Left foot braking, heel toe, clutchless. What ever works. I don’t even want to know what brake temps are like on WRC after a tarmac stage. And only Senna makes it look so easy with loafers.
After recently viewing this Porsche vs. Juke R, I realized how fuckin awesome slow mo footage is. So I’ve added the best slow motion autoracing videos out there.
