Normally, I wouldn’t want to post a 45 minute video of just a guy talking.
However when the person is Gary Hartstein, the former FIA Medical Delegate for the Formula One World Championship, it’s worth taking the time to listen. He’s got an interesting backstory.
I’m going to be honest. It’s a long one, so I’m not expecting people to get to commenting on it right away. However, I’d love to get people’s opinions on how safety in motorsports has changed over the last thirty years. The sport has seriously changed for the better thanks to people like Gary.
Is that a StartingGrid sticker in the rear window? I do believe that it is!
We love getting submissions to |StartingGrid|, especially from our international readers. John Pattison has always been particularly awesome, sharing pictures of his Starlet V with us either here on the blog our on our Facebook page.
(I think the fact that he got some stickers from us helps with the motivation. jk )
John was down at Japfest2013 recently, and snapped some pictures to share here with everyone on the blog. Click on the bump below to get a sight of what was shown in the UK.
When I was in college I worked at a Cadillac dealership as a lot attendant. This was the early 90s, interesting to me American cars were few and far between. The Eldorado Touring Coupe of 1991 caught my attention with its body color trim and rectangular exhaust tips. These cars featured 180 horsepower 4.9 liter V8s that were a significant step up from the 150-ish horsepower engines put in prior year Eldorados.
Just testing some new functionality on the blog. However, there is no reason to leave this moment to waste, so have a picture of Heikki Kovalainen during Barcelona FP1.
Btw, what do you think of the new site changes?
Any F1 fans know Caterham F1 is having a hell of a time with the development of it’s CT03. From what I’ve read, because of the upcoming regulation changes in 2014, the plan has been to develop a “hybrid” car, which integrates some of next year’s design methodology into this year’s car. The end result is that…well, it’s slow.
Mad Mike is one of those drifters, who I absolutely love his style.
Take one quad-rotor FD3S, a super winding road, with some slow-motion shots and you have all of the pieces for a super fun video. No words. Just beautiful noise.
I’d love to do something like this. Thanks to Speedhunters for the original find.
