It's a question that is impossible to answer, simply because even the man himself is adamant that he doesn't yet know. Speculation about Hamilton's career plans has been rife since his new one-year deal was finally announced on February 8, a little over a month before the start of testing in Bahrain. It's not the first time that he has gone into a season with only that year left on a contract, but usually it's been at the conclusion of a longer deal. This time around it's different, and the fact that the current arrangement was concluded so late reflects the complex bargaining process before both sides were happy. By agreeing a one-year deal, Hamilton has kept his options open – and so has team boss Toto Wolff. Throw in the availability of George Russell, and potentially Max Verstappen, and there is plenty about which to speculate. It all feeds into the ongoing debate on what Hamilton might choose to do at the end of this season. First, he has the chance to secure … [Read more...] about Hamilton: Man on a mission or a last hurrah?

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY July 2, 2013 -- Thirty years ago, Rob Dyson raced a 1983 Firebird in his first professional race at the IMSA Coca-Cola Three Hours of Lime Rock. He had been racing in the SCCA since 1974 but moved into professional racing on that Memorial Day. Of the thirty-seven cars entered that day, only one team still racing today: Dyson Racing. The team will be officially commemorating their thirtieth anniversary at the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park next weekend, July 5 - 6. Many of the team's milestones over the past thirty years have occurred at Lime Rock Park, their home track with their shop less than an hour away. Two years after first running the 1983 Firebird, Rob Dyson moved up to an IMSA GTP Porsche 962 and debuted the car at Lime Rock in May of 1985 and won the first time out. The following year, the Lime Rock GTP race was the first professional pole for the team. The team also gave Mazda its first P2 victory at Lime Rock in 2009. And Lime … [Read more...] about Dyson Racing heads to home track with memories of their past
One of the just 349 F50s is having some ownership issues. There are only 349 Ferrari F50 units existing in the world. Introduced in 1995, the mid-engine sports car is one of the iconic nameplates coming from Italy, with the last one rolling off the assembly line in 1997. However, one of these rare Ferrari units is having a hard time finding its rightful owner. Specifically, a federal case in Buffalo, New York spells a conundrum as to who is the real owner of a 1996 Ferrari F50 that has a market value of $1.94 million. Gallery: 1995 Ferrari F50 11 Photos According to the report, the sports car was taken into custody by the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as it's being transported from Canada into the United States at the Peace Bridge Port of Entry on December 14, 2019. It raised alarm because of the seemingly tampered VIN plate. The federal government has … [Read more...] about Who Owns This Ferrari: The Guy It Was Stolen From Or The Guy Who Bought It?
First and foremost, I am writing this with a heavy heart. Second, I have allowed some time to pass so that my emotions regarding the event would not cloud my judgement on the incident. Third, in no way is the following letter meant to be degrading or attempt to point fingers at the organizers of PPIHC and company. I watched a man die on Sunday, at the summit of Pikes Peak. My eyewitness account is not necessarily important, and I quite definitely do not wish to relive the incident that took place atop that mountain. However, I will recall, to the best of my ability, the series of events that took place that fateful morning. As this was my first and quite possibly sole attendance to the world famous hill climb, I wanted to experience the most of the event. It is important to note that parking at the top is extremely limited, and makes for a difficult transit up or down the final Sector. Rather than take the media shuttle from the host hotel, I opted to park at Devil's … [Read more...] about Witnessing death at Pikes Peak: a first person account of Bobby Goodin’s final moments
The new TNGA-based sedan is bigger and more refined than before. UPDATE: Four videos added below. The first two require no Japanese language ability to understand, but the other two are predominantly in the language. After launching its absolute flagship for Japan, the Century , Toyota is now introducing the more mainstream Crown luxury sedan, which was previewed by a namesake concept last year. The automaker describes the 15 th generation of the model as the first-generation connected car because it comes as standard equipped with a data communication module (DCM). Based on Toyota’s new TNGA platform, the vehicle has been tested on the Nurburgring and should deliver “outstanding handling,” “responsive driving performance,” and “exceptional vehicle stability” in a wide range of driving conditions. The new model is slightly longer than its predecessor, which was launched in 2012 - 193 inches (4,190 millimeters) versus 192 inches (4,885 mm), with a bit longer … [Read more...] about 15th Generation Toyota Crown Launched In Japan [UPDATED]
