|Classic Video| What happens when Jeremy Clarkson meets Keiichi Tsuchiya?

It’s a rainy day. I had some time on Youtube, and what I find? Jeremy Clarkson going to Japan to check out the touge, Wangan and a drift event. I knew I liked that Clarkson bloke. 😉

I’d never though that I’d see a video with Jeremy Clarkson and Keiichi Tsuchiya at the same time. This was “Old Top Gear”, but it’s still worth a look, if you have a few minutes for a fun little video throwback.

Aryton Senna’s PSA on #Karting! #F1

You have to love Senna, not only for his achievements in Formula 1, but for his love of competition karting. Check out this video where he advocates many of the core values of being involved in karting.

Honestly, I think that no matter what form of motorsport that you participate in, having experience in a kart is incredibly useful. Worked for Senna, so it works for me. 😉

Nismo Festival 2010

Even though today is a holiday, we understand that other things in the world are going on. For example, the situation  in Japan. We hear at the Starting Grid hope that the situation in Japan recovers, so that events like this can be held in the coming year. Our thoughts go out to those overseas. If you get a chance, donate to a care organization, or attend one of the local fundraisers just to do what you can.

I know I can go without a latte for a day, just to donate. So that aside, take a look at a cool video from Japan.
