Street racers almost crash in Singapore tunnel
Instead of Russia, today’s crazy dash camera video comes by way of Singapore, where a couple of alleged street racers nearly created a catastrophe. A Mercedes driver and the driver of what looks to be a Hyundai Coupe (similar to the Tiburon that was sold here) are having a go at each other in a tunnel on the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway, when the Hyundai driver very nearly loses control and narrowly misses slamming into another car. Then, just when you think it’s over, they exit the tunnel and continue the recklessness on the streets. YouTuber Cory Tan posted the video online, which has been picked up by local media and police are now investigating.
Ever since underground Porsche restorer Magnus Walker was featured in a short film by Torontonian Tamir Moscovici, the dreadlock wearing British ex-pat has been popping up all over the place. He has visited Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage and has been on the cover of Road & Track.
Walker recently picked up a rare 1976 U.S. market Porsche 911 Turbo, which has become his latest passion. Photographer Maurice van den Tillaard of DutchmanPhotos recently spent a day following Magnus and the Turbo around. No words, just beauty.
Skipping rope on a motorcycle
I was having lunch out yesterday when I noticed this video on the TV wall of the restaurant. I could barely skip rope as a kid, and I certainly couldn’t do it now. French trials bike rider Benoit Dagnicourt does it on a motorcycle! Colour me impressed.
Tony Stewart flips out at Oshweken Speedway
On Monday night the big boys of sprint car racing dropped by Oshweken Speedway, near Brantford. The big draw of the evening was NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart, who was on hand to compete in the winged monsters. Stewart is a racer’s racer, who loves to compete in anything on wheels, and often takes time to race sprint cars. During Monday night’s race, Stewart gets too high on the banked oval and a big chuck of dirt sends the car flying. As is usually the case when these cars go over, Stewart’s machine flips several times before landing forlornly on its wheels.
Stewart was unhurt in the incident and in his typical fashion was flirting with the attending paramedic during the mandatory post crash check-up.

This image has been floating around online for a couple of years, but I haven’t seen it in a while and thought it was worth sharing. Read the signs, they say all you need to know about deciding what lane to drive in.
