It was all inspired by the magic of Disney. At this year’s Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, Honda unveiled a custom Odyssey that would look well at home in any Disney park (or any Disney fanatic's driveway). They call it the "Minnie" Van, and it's a clever play on words to honor one of Walt’s most popular characters, Minnie Mouse, inspired by the magic of Disney. The exterior is finished in hot pink with white polka dots to match Minnie's signature style. On the roof, a massive set of Minnie ears and a matching bowtie complete the package. It’s all part of Honda’s partnership with Disney-ABC and the "Disney Unlock the Magic Sweepstakes," which will see the Honda Odyssey make a special appearance on an upcoming Disney’s Mickey and the Roadster Racers special. As part of the "Disney Unlock the Magic Sweepstakes," one lucky winner will walk away with a grand prize vacation to Disneyland Resort in California, as well as an all-new Honda Odyssey minivan… … [Read more...] about Honda Creates Adorable Odyssey ‘Minnie’ Van For Disney’s D23

He faced a near impossible task alongside the Brazilian, and after that difficult year, he never had another shot at Grand Prix racing. In fact, he was a much more accomplished driver than the bare 1986 statistics suggested, as he had already shown in his F3 days, and would subsequently demonstrate in sportscar racing. In some ways Dumfries was a throwback to an earlier era, following in the footsteps of aristocrats who raced ERAs and Bentleys in the pre-WW2 years. However, rather than spending the family fortune, he tried to make it on his own, not using his name to open doors. Never one to suffer fools gladly, he retained a dry sense of humour – and always had a down-to-earth perspective on his career. He was born John Colum Crichton-Stuart in 1958, and as the son of the Marquess of Bute, he was titled the Earl of Dumfries. He had a close connection to motor racing as his cousin Charlie Crichton-Stuart had been an F3 racer in the sixties, part of a close-knit group … [Read more...] about Obituary: Johnny Dumfries, 1958-2021
