I’ve written my fair share of articles about how Formula 1 is so behind the times when it comes to being accessible on social media, to the point that it’s ridiculous.
IndyCar on the other hand, has been doing a great job providing interesting camera angles for people to view the race from and also allowing people to watch FULL RACES on Youtube for free!
People have been complaining about the sounds of the 2014 F1 cars for a while, myself included. However, if you can’t fix it, feature it, right?
Sounds like some DJ is going to make a beat-track with F1 sounds. I’m not going to lie. This sounds like pretty fun idea. Can’t wait for the full track.
Getting ready for a soaking Saturday final during Gold Cup weekend
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to do a project log. It’s been a real busy couple of months, karting-wise, but I’m not complaining in the slightest! To be honest, I’ve never had more fun in my entire life!
One of my teammates, Josh Stanford, volunteered himself to be my chassis tuner to help improve the setup of the World Formula kart after I finished fourth in my first regional race. We’d been noticing some improvements in the kart handling here and again, but given how competitive we had been during the finals of the first Gold Cup race, we’ve really been waiting to take the performance up a notch or two.

This is an incredible story! Paul Bischof used to design model race cars out of paper. Infiniti Red Bull Racing found out about his work and now he’s employed in the composites department for the Formula 1 team! That’s a pretty epic rags to riches tale.
Check it out!
Yet another example of how motorcycle engine swaps make anything cool. Honda UK swapped a 1000C Firestorm motorcycle engine into a lawnmower and was able to power it to a World Record at 117 mph. What I’m seeing here is a new spec racing series!
Lawnmower racing is cool again. ;)
I’m going to be honest, I haven’t been in much of a writing mood lately. So I’ve been posting mostly videos that I find to be interesting. This one is of a MP4-12C vs a BTCC Civic vs a Honda Fireblade British Superbike.
It’s pretty sweet to see the comparison between the different types of cars, and the performance can be generated between slicks, weight and power.
Watch. Comment, if you want.
All I’m saying is that I think he’d be hilarious to play racing games with. When you watch this video, you kind of forget that Mansell is a Formula 1 World Champion. He just kind of reminds me of my grandfather. ;)
Alright, I’m going to get right to the point here. So now we’ve got our new Formula 1 V6 engines running on track and out in the open. Do you like the new sounds that the turbo engine makes?
Just for a sample, we went from this with the V8s:
I’ve been getting ready for the 2014 F1 season for a while, but I still was confused how the new hybrid turbo system worked. I read articles about it, watching BBC F1 videos and whatever else I could find, but it still made no sense! Then Mercedes comes out with this simple video… and then *click!*. Sometimes it’s just the simple things.
Everyone get it now, or what it just me who was confused?
