Thu, 08 Sep 2016 07:52:47 -0500The global reach of television has given motor racing enthusiasts an opportunity to view both the traditional European-based Formula One competition as well as the Indy series long popular in the USA. Formula One racing has always been on tracks that include most of the features of ordinary motor roads, especially tight bends and moderate inclines, whereas Indy racing was for many years confined to special race tracks formed in an oval with banked curves at each end. Since 2005, however, Indy racing has increasingly included some events on road and street courses and these have come to predominate with only about one-third of races now taking place on oval tracks. In this respect, the two motor sports seem to have become more alike, but the contrast between Formula One and Indy racing on the oval track remains.
Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:04:42 -0500Hot Rodding was a new sport where anyone with a car could prove how fast they were, if you loved cars this was the place for you! The American public was no stranger to Hot Rod Racing. Hot Rod Racing first became popular in California after World War II with newly coined words such as "stripped-down" and "souped-up". This was a time for strictly thrills, not any more than that. These were serious young men, and some not-so-young men who spent hours rebuilding motors and listening to safety lectures and watching films on safe driving. On the Mississippi Gulf Coast during the 1950s car enthusiast and teen-aged kids formed Hot Rod Clubs such as the Chariots, Coasters, Road Rebels, and Pace Makers. What was the difference between the Chariots & Coasters? The Chariots were organized in January 1956, with the purpose of providing directed activities in the maintenance and operation of hot rods. The Coasters organized Oct 4, 1954. Holding a charter with the National Hot-Rod Association made up of Keesler Field Men. The club was organized for on-the-base military personnel and their dependents.
Wed, 08 Jun 2016 08:50:56 -0500The Monaco Grand Prix never fails to disappoint; the glamorous yet challenging street circuit separates the men from the boys, and is the race all drivers desire to win. With its limited overtaking opportunities some spectators consider this prestigious race to be boring, however they underestimate the complexity of the sport's slowest and most difficult circuit. Whilst narrowly swerving around the streets of the Principality, drivers are challenged with tight corners and numerous elevation changes as they negotiate their way through the tight and twisty track, tackling the hazardous hairpins and treacherous tunnel.

Bottas' breakthrough season greatly contributed to the resurgence of the Williams F1 team, which saw them finish third in the Constructors' Championship; their best result since 2003's second place.
Tue, 10 Nov 2015 10:00:32 -0600Have you ever wondered what it is like to stand in the Sahara Force India garage on a race weekend? Ever wondered what it's like to be a guest in the Formula 1 paddock? I am so proud to say that Sahara Force India invited me to spend Free Practise 1 with them at the Belgium Grand Prix 2015, all so that I can share the experience with you guys. One of life's most precious gifts is passion. Passion is what fuels people to do great things and what inspires teams to work together. It is an emotion which I felt was the key driving force behind the whole operation. The feeling of walking through the Formula 1 paddock for the first time is one I don't think I will be able to replace any time soon. Imagine starting a new job for the first time, one you have wanted for ages after years of applications, then multiply that feeling by a thousand.

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 10:00:55 -050017-year old Formula 1 racing driver, Max Verstappen, has caused quite a stir since he came onto the F1 scene in March this year. Son of former Dutch F1 driver, Jos Verstappen, Max is the youngest ever driver in Formula 1. Incredibly, he hadn't passed his driving test when he joined the sport, so was allowed to race at 200 mph around a race track but not permitted to drive on public roads. He has since passed his test and due to a regulatory change, his record as the youngest driver to race in Formula 1 will stand, since the minimum age for a super licence (the type you need to be allowed to race on track) has been increased to 18 years old.

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 07:08:51 -0600When you are watching F1 drivers flying from country to country to attend races, you might envy them greatly, for you think that the racers just have so many opportunities for free travel.

Every year, F1 will be held in about 20 countries, which means that the drivers have to fly from country to country throughout the year to enter the race. Indeed, this provides them a golden opportunity to sightsee. Nevertheless, F1 sport is time and energy consuming, which hinders drivers to have fun in their relaxed time. Above all, due to flyaway races, the drivers all suffer severely from jetlag and irregular schedule.
