What the F1?

Posted In Cars

I’ve visited the Red Bull Museum which lets you get almost as close as sitting in the cockpit of one of these asphalt jets, but I still haven’t been to an F1 race.  And this weekend- F1 returned to the US at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.  Today’s race highlighted a technical track and some good dicing but Vettel and Hamilton ran away with it, finishing about 38 seconds ahead of 3rd place Alonso.  Vettel basically gave up the lead with a bad line into turn 1 but it also exhibited how competitive the DRS (Drag Reduction System) can make a race.  DRS allows a following car (within 1 second) to open up its rear wing to limit downforce on the (3/4 mile in Austin) straightaway to help overcome a lead car.  Looks like a fun track and it’s definitely on my bucket list, though I’d probably prefer Monaco, Catalunya (Spain), or Spa (Belgium) if I win the lotto.  Gotta try for some media passes next year!

Pike’s Peak crash
Dec 2012 19

You don’t have to be a car person to have seen the video of this Evo flying off the cliff at Pike’s Peak this year.  It was blasted all over tv from the Today Show to Piers Morgan.  I had a chance to view this carnage in person and it ain’t pretty but the roll cage did exactly what it needed to do- let two people walk away alive.  Check out the story!

Hoppy New Beer!
Jan 2013 01

Celebrated the start of the New Year with an Allagash Gargamel, Scaldis Prestige (AKA my Christmas bonus- thanks boss!), and Russian River Deviation, one of the best (and rarest) wild ales to grace these lips in quite some time!  Let’s just say it was a wild night- the beers at least…

New Years Resolution- keep on traveling to new places, drinking new things, and trying new foods.  I sat behind one of my wet dream cars in 2012- the Skyline GT-R- so here’s to wrapping my hands around a Bugatti Veyron steering wheel in 2013!
