2013 Clipsal 500 Pre Race

Before looking into the event itself.  Lets look at the changes to the V8 Supercars for the 2013 season.  They look similar on the outside but many changes went into this new generation.

Introduction to the new season.

Highlights from qualifying and Shane Van Gisbergen’s Pole lap.


Sloooooooooooooowwwwww Moooootion.

Stoner’s Redbull

It was perplexing at the time.  A 26 year old at the top pf his game, quit the game.  MotoGP’s Casey Stoner decided he was home sick.  He is now tackling 4 wheels via V8 Supercars.  He will make his debut in the V8 development series.  His first practice session, at Adelaide no less, resulted in an impressive 9th.  Not bad for a track he’s never driven on before.

V8 Supercars 2013

Pre Season testing for the V8 folks.  I have no idea how to predict this season.  All new cars (even though they look similar to last years), 2 new manufacturers (in Nissan and Mercedes), and new teams and sponsors.  I’d say its hard to bet against the yardstick in Triple 8 Race Engineering, now with Redbull branding.  Ford will again be right up there with Holden, you can count on that.  Nissan and Mercedes are a crap shoot.  I do beleive with the additionlal testing Nissan will have the upper hand.  Can’t wait for the season to start.

Footwork

All sorts of styles.  To each his own.  Left foot braking, heel toe, clutchless.  What ever works.  I don’t even want to know what brake temps are like on WRC after a tarmac stage. And only Senna makes it look so easy with loafers.







Everything Is Better In Slow Motion

After recently viewing this Porsche vs. Juke R, I realized how fuckin awesome slow mo footage is.  So I’ve added the best slow motion autoracing videos out there.
