Thing that struck me is how unkept the place looks, overgrown plants and long grass. They really do nothing with the circuit between Grand Prix.

I watched this video 5 times already. It's so f** funny/stupid :rofl:


Brazil, it's raining buckets at the Autodromo Santa Cruz do Sol during a local 250cc bike race when rider Marlington Teixeira takes a spill. Nothing serious or unusual there, everyone's crawling and there's a ton of water, the rider is not hurt. But when Teixeira, nicknamed Kalunga, realizes there's bent bit on the bike and he would not be able to just hop back on and continue, well... he turns to that time tested football trick, the dive!

Helloo, Mr Kalunga, you DO realize there is a new invention called "video" yes?

Apparently, not. Teixeira decides the best thing to do is to run across the track and lay there, pretending to be injured, until the race is black flagged. Competitors stop and throw down their bikes in the mud to help this not a very nice person who later claimed to have fainted. Teixeira was banned from the championship but amazingly not for life.

A lot of sense from James Allen in this article:

Stinging but not unfair assessment of Chilton.

Am I the only one utterly annoyed by autosports charge for articles after so many? I cant even see who the autosport award finalists are without needing to sign up. Its just ludicrous how theyve changed it. I cant even look at an article showing the new hyundai WRC car. Stupid site.

Anyway, kept my promise of donating here, love this place!

Most of their news is available on Twitter sources or indeed here, when we're around to update.

It helps that since May I have had little to do! But University + the hope of getting a job to finance everything means I could be reducing time here! :(

Ah, how fun. I need to find a job anyway, not much round here sadly.

Back to F1, there's a meeting of the WMSC tomorrow. It's about to get very political...

I've noticed since AUTOSPORT imposed the 50 article limit their articles are full of links to previous stories. Probably trying to get you to hit 50 quicker.
