When a friend of mine brought this to my attention, the first thing that came across my mind was “Man, Japan has everything…” Well, the first thing was “Holy crap, that’s freaking random.” Then, “Japan has everything…” (video after the bump)
Yeah, neither did I.
Superkarts are insanely fast racing machines. Faster than most racing cars that you can get your hands on. This Superkart in this video is faster around Cadwell Kart than an F3 car.
Watch, and enjoy.
The Mclaren F1 GTR is one of my favorite cars, of all time. These videos bring to mind a discussion that I’ve been having with some of my peers about having the right network of people around you, in order to create true success.
Seeing all of the brilliant people involved in developing such a program really drives that point home.

This morning, I received a video about Lachlan Taylor, a young rider who is currently competing in the Shell Asia Talent Cup Test in Malaysia. At 13 years old, he’s already an Australian dirt bike champion. Now he’s moving to road racing, and is racing through the junior series in Asia. I was also fortunate enough to be shared some some background information on about his career, so far.
Ever since I heard that the WTCC was going to return to the Nordschleife in 2015, I couldn’t help but be excited. Having a World Touring Car race on the 13.2 mile track is going to be something to see.
Now seeing that the Green Hell isn’t just a track that you can learn over a race weekend, the WTCC set up a practice day for the teams. Check out Loeb in this video as a teaser for the race later in the year.
This video about the drift team, Mind-Control, reminds me about why I got into enjoying cars in the first place. The sheer fun of it all. Sometimes we get so caught up in ourselves in motorsport, I feel like people just forget what should all really be about. Going fast and having fun.
For most ‘ADHD-Smartphone-dependent-venti-coffee-drinking- give it to me now’ internet users, you’re probably not going to take the time to watch a 14 minute video in Japanese.
You should though. You really should.
