Calgary driver Jay Mangat captured this incredible footage of a street sign on Deerfoot in the North East of Calgary. The winds were so high that the highway sign seemed like it was bouncing in time to the music on Mangat’s radio. The extreme bouncing caused one of the signs to fall from the cross bar.
Watch Villeneuve spin Tagliani in Montreal
Chances are that you have already read Norris McDonald’s comments about Jacques Villeneuve’s antics during the Montreal NASCAR Nationwide Series race in Montreal last weekend. If you didn’t watch the race however, you have missed one of the most blatant displays of the former F1 Champ’s poor behaviour. Rather than racing fellow hometown fan fave Alex Tagliani cleanly for the lead, Villeneuve takes advantage of a sideways Tag by staying hard in the throttle until the number 60 spun out of his way.
And JV wonders why everyone hates him!
Emerson Fittipaldi’s twin engine VW Beetle
Like many South American racers who compete on the international circuit, Emerson Fittipaldi often returned to his home continent to race while he was involved in Formula 1. In 1969, he returned to Brazil to race in the Thousand Miles of Guanabara with his brother Wilson. With a field of serious race cars like the mighty Ford GT40, the Fittipaldi’s needed a serious machine, so Wilson built a twin engine VW Beetle that could potentially be the equal of the serious factory machinery.
Facebook friend of a Facebook friend, Oswaldo Palermo recently posted the above photo of Emmo in action in the giant killer Beetle. The Atomic Beetle ran in third place for the first hour or so until the transmission let go. You can learn more about the incredible machine in this older story on Wired.
