WHY WE RACE - ANDREW 'THE UNDERTAKER' DELAPENHA

So a 2014 Ferrari La Ferrari was sold recently, at an auction, for US 2.9 million! I refuse to comment! I appreciate the value of the typed word. But, I am also an advocate of less is more. A firm advocate. Feelings are difficult to trap in a web, but visual cues elucidate where words stumble. There is nothing, absolutely nothing in this world that can be compared to the furious influx of colliding emotions, which instantaneously ignite as you gingerly creep, [...]

Her Majesty Still Has the Final Say, and the Man From Hanover is Not Happy

I have always felt that there was much more to the small parish of Hanover than meets the eye. I went along to the Institute of Jamaica (IOJ) recently for an event named Salute to the Parish of Hanover, and I discovered that I was right. We in the audience (I wish the beautiful IOJ Lecture Hall had been completely full) got quite a basinful of facts, figures, cultural stimulation, and a dash of controversy. Besides, there were lovely displays of native [...]

RALLY JAMAICA - A LETHARGIC AND PAINFUL DEATH?

MANNING CUP Kingston College was always the better team. That was obvious on paper and all the analysts agreed. But, we all know that the game is not played on paper. STGC began like a canon on a 15th century battlefield! The goal eventually came - an upset was materialising! STGC greeted half-time with the lead, but they did not return with the same fire. KC seized the moment and captured STGC's style of play - the equalizer followed! Consistent with what was [...]

MOTOGP IN TURMOIL!

Jorge Lorenzo is a five times world champion. He is as smooth as a mirror and victory is his friend. Jorge Lorenzo is not known to shrug and run when a significant challenge appears. At Yamaha, his team mate was the global superstar, Valentino Rossi. Average blokes would possibly be intimidated and stunned into submission when 'The Doctor' stepped in the room or roared out on his machine, but not Jorge. Rossi was forced, repeatedly to submit to Jorge's designs  and [...]

LEWIS HAMILTON SERVING DONUTS?

So, a tyre was being changed on an AD wagon. The owner/driver had reason to lift the hatch. A neat mini-fan, pointing forward, was tucked in the upper right corner, before the door. Somehow, my eyes followed a path to the front of the vehicle. An identical mini-fan with a blue rotating blade, was sitting comfortably, next to the (interior) rear view mirror. Ac on a creative budget! F1 F1, I have a rule suggestion. If the drivers' championship is decided before the [...]

WRC DRIVERS RETAIN THE 2018 TITLE - BEST DRIVERS IN THE WORLD!

Ghosn is gone, the smoke lingers. Here is a question. Why when we leave our vehicles, after completing a few steps, we look back. What are we looking for? I still maintain that WRC drivers are without doubt the best drivers on the competitive circuit. If you are in doubt, ask Ken Block. We all know Ken's claim to viral fame, but ever so often, when he decides to test the WRC waters, like a microscopic pebble descending into an ocean, [...]
