Motor1.com sits down with one of the world's top stunt drivers. It's a dream job — spinning, sliding, jumping, and crashing cars on the sets of the biggest film and TV productions and in front of live audiences all over the world. Chris Morena is one man who is living that dream. Morena's credits include the fourth Transformers film and the famous final episode of the hit TV series Breaking Bad, but it is as one of the world's leading stunt drivers where the New York native made his name. He began his career in the 1990s, training in Connecticut, before becoming a part of the touring Hollywood Stunt Show that was backed by Toyota, and later Ford. 'I worked nine seasons with Toyota and then Ford, and literally worked from the ground up,' Morena recalled. 'I washed the cars, I [then] started doing some of the easier stunts, then five years later I started doing the car driving and car crashes. That was a seasonal gig, we'd go to state and county fairs in America and we'd put … [Read more...] about From Mickey Mouse to muscle cars
That includes tossing a $3.4 million hypercar out of a skyscraper. The upcoming eighth installment of the Fast and Furious film franchise, The Fate of the Furious , hits theaters on April 14, 2017. Based on the numerous trailers we’ve already seen, there’s bound to be plenty of fast cars and plenty explosions, not that we expected anything less. But there is one question that no one usually thinks to ask is: how much does all that damage cost taxpayers like yourselves? According to the company Insure The Gap , (by way of The Hollywood Reporter ), the cost of damage through all of the films would total a whopping £ 419,446,914, or $523,312,456 at today’s exchange rates. That’s all hypothetical, of course. £ 148,786,000, or $185,625,413, while Furious 7 sees the most serious damage to buildings and cars on screen. The destroyed Lykan Hypersport alone cost $3.4 million, making it the single most expensive car destroyed throughout all the films. … [Read more...] about Fast and Furious Film Franchise Caused Over $500 Million In Damages
Bottas and Hamilton have been Mercedes teammates since the start of the 2017 season, winning the constructors’ championship in each of the past four years together. Bottas finished as runner-up to Hamilton in the championship in both 2019 and 2020, but has struggled to match his teammate’s form through the early part of the new season. Hamilton has scored two race wins and leads the drivers’ standings, but Bottas has not finished a race any higher than third, leaving him 37 points behind in the championship. Bottas hit back at a suggestion he could be replaced by Mercedes junior George Russell mid-season on Thursday, calling it “bullshit” . Hamilton was supportive of Bottas when asked if Mercedes would have a stronger line-up next year by replacing the Finn with Russell, and felt he deserved to be cut some of the criticism he has faced. “From what I’ve experienced, from the relationship of course that I have with Valtteri, I think he’s been an amazing teammate … [Read more...] about Hamilton: People need to give Bottas a break
Home Two wheelers oi-Promeet Ghosh By Promeet Ghosh Published: Thursday, May 6, 2021, 16:51 [IST] In September last year, KTM had confirmed that it is working on a new range of motorcycles. This new range of motorcycles from the company will have a new 750cc engine. These new motorcycles will be manufactured in China by CFMoto, who is KTM's distributor in the country. Both the companies entered into a joint venture back in 2017, to develop and manufacture new motorcycles for Chinese and international markets. We are expecting KTM to be working on a wide range of motorcycles with the new 750cc platform. Upcoming motorcycles could be the KTM 750 Duke, 750 Adventure and even a 750 Supermoto. However, the new range is expected to be unveiled sometime next year. The 750 cc motorcycles will fill in the gap between the 490 and the 890 range. There is no other detail about the new 750 range of motorcycles. However, we think … [Read more...] about KTM Is Working On A New Range Of 750CC Motorcycles: Here Are All The Details!
