According to NBC, Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen Have Switched Citizenship

According to the standings reported by NBC Sports Network after the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, two F1 drivers have quietly switched citizenship. Felipe Massa, originally from Brazil, has taken Danish citizenship and Kimi Raikkonen, born and raised in Finland, has become Brazilian. It is not surprising that Kimi has chosen a country known for its elaborate carnivals and partying but we are still scratching our heads on Felipe's choice. Maybe he's loved Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid fairy tale since he was a little kid?

Pagani Zonda 760RS driven! evo Diaries

This short video Lewis Hamilton posted of himself driving the Pagani Zonda 760RS through the Monaco tunnel had me drooling. Why can't Formula 1 cars sound like THIS?? I had to go and find more Pagani Zonda 760RS videos at WOT. I love this one from evo magazine. Skip to 7:50 for the best sound.

The Mustang Will Get a 10-Speed Gearbox? That's Cute.

So it looks like the Mustang is getting a 10-speed gearbox. Not sure what the big deal is -- Fast & Furious cars have had the 18-speed gearbox for years!!

LeMons at NJMP, August 9, 2014, Episode 1 - Race Start

The goal for the first few laps is to avoid the inevitable carnage resulting from having 130 cars racing on a 2.2-mile track. I was happy to start the race in P74 and move up to P5 by the end of the first stint.

Onboard The Cosmonaughts During Their Downhill Crash at Lime Rock

Watch The Cosmonaughts clip the curbing on the inside of the Downhill, fishtail across the grass, and crash into the wall on the outside of the turn. Mighty scary and it's really good to see that they were unharmed. Amazingly, they waited in the car for 5 minutes and since it was taking the tow truck too long to get there, they restarted the car and drove themselves back into the pits. Just as impressive, they were able to get the car back on track after 4 1/2 hours. Throw in a Like to encourage them and support them on their Facebook pageThat is one tough team and they also happen to be some of the nicest drivers I have run into at LeMons and Chump.

24 Hours of LeMons at NJMP, Friday Practice, August 8, 2014

This was my first session in the Near Orbital Space Monkeys' '88 Mustang LX. This is probably the toughest car I've ever driven. Good power and excellent torque but it handles like a brick. This is one of my better practice laps - a 1:48.5 in clean air.
