Park Bench Racing is at the 24 Hours of Lemons at NHMS This Weekend!

Park Bench Racing at the 24 Hours of Lemons race, NHMS, Friday practice, October 24, 2014

If you are looking for something to do this weekend besides apple picking and Halloween parties, come up to Loudon, NH and watch some wanna-be racers take on the road course at NHMS. You will be greeted with race cars that started out at less than $500, crazy car decorations, and drivers with a few screws loose (like their cars). Keep an eye out for our Park Bench Racing Team. The team will be driving a Buick Regal they 'borrowed' from grandma with a park bench on the back for a spoiler (it really does work). Come on by the pits and say Hi unless we are desperately trying to fix something (extremely likely), in which case grab a rag, tool or fire extinguisher and try to help us get 'er going again. Hope to see you there and thanks in advance.

Andy L., Team Captain

Friday recap:

The Park Bench Racing team has already rescued one Camaro/Firebird from burning down to the ground...


... did welding to help the Kentucky Chrome team pass inspection for which it was generously awarded with a case of beer...


... welded the racecar's exhaust back on, replaced two hubs, passed inspection, tested the car, and is ready to lay down some serious rubber at the race!

This Rally Crash Proves That Miracles DO Happen!!


Hat Tip to Omeed A.

It's just incredible that no spectator was hurt in this horrifying accident at Italy's Jolly Rally Valle d'Aosta. Driver Pietro Scavone and co-driver Diego D'Herin sustained minor injuries and one spectator was treated for shock, according to the La Repubblica newspaper. A miracle indeed!

Inner Speed Secrets Webinar

Great news: world famous performance coach, race car driver, author and speaker Ross Bentley is doing a webinar featuring his Inner Speed Secrets program. He's always done these in person for a group in seminar format, or one-on-one when coaching a driver. It’s all about the mental game of driving. But he wants to offer it to even more people and we are glad to spread the word. Take a look at inner-speed-secrets.com for the webinar info. Registration closes this coming Friday (Oct. 10). 

This is why you should consider attending:
  • This program is unique, and exclusive, but being made available online, for the first time.
  • Some of the best drivers in the world have used this program, and it really makes a difference – drivers will perform better than they ever have.
  • Due to the webinar format, Ross is able to deliver this program at a very low price, but registration is limited. Sign up before October 10 to get a spot. Don't delay or you'll get left behind by the drivers who do participate in the webinar.
  • This program has truly been a secret of a relatively small number of drivers, and Ross is now making it more available for a limited time - still only to those who register by this Friday, October 10.
  • The program will help drivers get into the zone and perform at their best more often. Who doesn’t want that?!

A Power Shift at Ferrari

Source: WSJ

This is an excellent WSJ write-up on Ferrari's long-time chairman Luca di Montezomolo's departure. In his typically eloquent and unique writing style, Dan Neil adds a lot of dimensions and food for thought to the story. It's a pivotal event in Ferrari's history that the direct link to Enzo Ferrari is now broken. Di Montezomolo leaves the Ferrari business in great shape except for the F1 team. As much as I love Italian cars, I think his advice for the new Ferrari chairman should be to hire... a British F1 team principal and a German driver.

Touch The Sky - A Moving Feature About Alex Zanardi


TOUCH THE SKY from tim hahne on Vimeo.
A STEREOSCREEN PRODUCTION

Alex Zanardi's story is part of the feature film ADRENALIN - out November 2014.

This is a short, but very intimate portrait of Alex Zanardi, the former Formula 1 driver and winner of the American Champ Car Series. Alex was already a star, when he had his almost fatal accident at the Lausitzring in Germany. He lost his legs, but not his attitude. Alex Zanardi came back and did the impossible: He won races in the World Touring Car Championship, two gold medals at the Paralympics in London 2012 and just recently added two more hand bike world titles!

It's a unique experience to spend a day with a true hero at his house in Padua, talking about his life and joining him for a training session with his hand bike. His last words in our film describe him best. But see for yourself...
