So with all of the negative press surrounding F1 in media-life, my friends and I have been talking about other racing series that we probably should be paying more attention to. Eventually the conversation always comes back to the World Endurance Championship.
Even though it’s harder to ‘relate’ to a team when you have three cars per team and three guys sharing a car, you really cannot doubt that the P1 cars are basically Formula 1 cars with roofs on them.
Check out this test at Monza. You can’t argue this speed.
Honestly, I haven’t been one for writing long descriptions for posts lately. You know why you’re here. 😉 ^^^
Fun fact on why #23 is always the lead car for the Nissan works teams, and important to the brand. It’s pretty insightful.
The more you know. 😉
They don’t call Sabine Schmitz, the Queen of the Ring, for no reason. Watch her at a recent VLN race. She says that between races and her ‘RingTaxi duties, she does about 1200 laps of the famous 13 mile track a year.
Watching this video, I’d believe that for sure.
I’m not going to lie. When Gymkhana 7 came out, I was a little bored after four or five minutes. I always wished that Ken Block had released four or five mini-short videos of his Mustang rather than a 12 hour…I mean minute epic. However, what did excite me was the 845 hp, 8000rpm, AWD Mustang.
I was hoping that someone would make a video to give some technical detail about the car. Enter Chris Harris. This is a nerdgasm about this amazing car.
Even if Gymkhana 7 is still too long.
As Formula E is going through development in it’s initial season, I really like how the series is doing it’s best to spread more media awareness of the cars, series and the technologies around them.
I wish that Formula 1 did this, because I feel like in a year where the series has some of the most technological advanced engines in the history of the sport, no one knows about it.
