Spot of the Day: Lamborghini Diablo VT

Hello

Today I was driving through my hometown, totally pissed about the thousands of people who actually dont know there the gas pedal in their own car is, when I saw THIS. I was just like "Woooooooow!"
Of course I stopped and took two pictures. But I'm sorry, I had no cam with me :/

In the past two years, If Im honest, I roamed around this selling place almost once a month, but in the last few months not that much. Maybe I'm searching for some pics of spots I found there :)

The boss, I think he is, if not, sorry!, said I'm almost the 200th person taking photos. But yeah, if there's a 'left' Diablo on the street, why not? 
As you can see on the picture below, even a bus driver stopped! :D

Car of the Week: Lotus Europa

Hello

Here's the this weeks 'Car of the Week', the Lotus Europa. My Modelcar is the Special Version.

Between 1966 and 1975 'Lotus Cars' produced about 9300 Lotus Europa in Hethel, Norfolk, England.
It's a 2-door sports car coupe.  Lotus founder Colin Chapman's philosophy of the automotive design was "Simplify, then add lightness" - And thats how the Europa looks like. The Europa was the first mid-engine mass-produced road car. Automotive writers described the handling very near to a Formula car for the road.

Sine December 1966 you were able to order the Series 1 or S1 Europa or Lotus Type 46, the first were delivered in France in February 1967. The engines, from a Renault 16, had 82 hp (61 kW) and needed 10 seconds for the run 0-100 kkmh / 0-60 mph. The top speed was around 180 kmh (110 mph) and only 644 were produced.
The Type 47 had 165 hp and was a modified track-version. There are no serious numbrs, but they built around 55 ones between 1966…

Wednesday Event No.I - the RAT RACE

Hello Guys

Here's the first event I want to present you: The RAT RACE!!



Presented by the 'CANNONBALL RUN WORLD EVENTS' the Rallye starts, for the very first time, on the 3rd of September in New York City at the Central Park. The drivers, maximum 30 cars, get every morning a package with a route and their evenings destination. The route goes from east to west coast, 3000 miles!
Every day the participants have to find ckeckpoints and after reaching all six codes they should be able to find the now resolutioned zip code where the hidden locker is located. The only thing wich is offical: the hidden locker is located somewhere on the West Coast. Inside the Locker, which'll be the prize for the winner of this race, there's a briefcase full with money.
The Rat Racers shouldnt get arrested by the cops for speeding or some other things. It's all about fun and having a great time together!
The last nights' party, on 9th September, will be hosted at the Ritz Carlto…

Hey guys

The this weeks' Car of the Week is the Bentley Continental GT. I've choosen this one because, as you know, its still winter and cold outside and I use to drink a lot of tea and I always connect the wonderful Great Britain with tea - so it wasn't hard to choose this car!

Help to SAVE THE RING

Hey guys


I copied here something for you from the  SAVE THE RING petition site. We all want to fight to become the Nürburgring again a place for real motor-sports and not just for fun parks. Please read this, watch the movie, sign the petition and tell your friends!! Lets hope for a change . . 

" From 2007 - 2009 the German government built a huge Leisure Park at the Nürburgring. It is based on fake visitor numbers, over sized and badly executed. Most of the time it is an empty ghost town. Once promised as private investment, it is now based on a debt of 350+ million EUR public money.

Instead of pulling the plug they rented the park, including both race tracks to exactly the same privateers who were driving forces behind the Leisure Park's initial private setup.

Without Racing experience they are since experimenting with events completely unrelated to Motor-sport all under the iconic "Nürburgring" brand name.

They now want Nordschleife to pay for the huge …

Clärenore Stinnes - What a woman . . !

Today I want to introduce you a, in my eyes, very awesome person. Today it would be her 110th Birthday, if she hadn't died in 1990. The person I'm talking about is none other than Clärenore Stinnes.
You never heard about her? So keep on reading, she really had an interesting life!

Clärenore was born in 1901 in Mühlheim an der Ruhr, Germany. As I could read in her book "Im Auto durch zwei Welten (In Car through two worlds)" she always had a passion for cars. But just think back, it was at the begining of the 20th Century, cars were very rare and not everyone was able to buy one. Thanks to her dad, a industrialist, she had the oportunity to repair them and just enjoyed the time she was able to spent with cars. At the age of 24 she took part at her first motor race and between 1925 and 1927 she had won 17 motor races.

She wanted to help the Car industry, to make the car more popular, worldwide, and started on the 25th May 1927 a travel no one did ever before - 47 000 km…
