Parr wants social media push for F1

Formula 1 teams and the sport's commercial rights holder Bernie Ecclestone should work together to try and better improve grand prix racing's exposure on the Internet - and especially in social media. That is the view of Williams chairman Adam Parr, who feels that although Ecclestone has done an amazing job in making the sport successful at events and on television, more could be done to expand its profile online. "What I feel very strongly is that as a sport what Bernie has created at the events, the quality of the events, the places we go, the standards we operate to, everybody is blown away," explained Parr.

Red Bull gets 11th-hour diffuser boost

Red Bull Racing has been handed a late boost in its hopes of minimising the performance loss caused by the ban on the off-throttle use of blown diffusers, after the FIA agreed to an 11th-hour concession on how it uses its Renault power unit. Amid ongoing discussions between engine manufacturers and the governing body about how much teams are allowed to continue blowing their exhausts, Red Bull Racing's supplier Renault has been allowed to keep 50 per cent of its exhaust flow when the driver is off throttle because of reliability reasons. The original intention had been to limit teams to just 10 per cent - but that was then increased marginally to 20 per cent at 18,000rpm after preliminary discussions with teams.

If you're a fan of racing video games, you might have purchased a copy of DiRT 3. The game features a variety of machines and tracks, yet some might still want more. Codemasters aims to please with its latest downloadable content add-on: the Monte Carlo Track Pack.

The Monte Carlo pack will cost Xbox users 800 Microsoft points. PS3 users need to shell out $9.99. Either way, that buys you eight new rally stages filled with hairy, snow-covered mountain passes in the Alps, including the legendary Col de Turini.

Whincup leads Triple Eight one-two

Jamie Whincup extended his championship lead in V8 Supercars by coming through from eighth on the grid to head a Triple Eight Holden one-two in the second Townsville street race. A hard-charging first stint brought Whincup into contention at the front, and he then saved a set of soft tyres for the final part of the race, allowing him to pass Ford Performance Racing's Mark Winterbottom for second and then catch and pass his race-leading Triple Eight team-mate Craig Lowndes 18 laps from the end.

Alfa Romeo pits Man vs MiTo in four-mile race through London

Filed under: , , ,

Man vs MiTo
Man vs MiTo - Click above for high-res image gallery

Pitting a car against a runner along busy city streets is something you'd expect to see on an episode of Top Gear. This time, however, it's Alfa Romeo that challenged athletes to a four-mile race through downtown London.

The contest pits Ivan Thomas, a 400-meter championship sprinter, against a 285-horsepower Alfa MiTo 1.3 JTDM driven by hurdle runner Andy Turner and navigated by long jumper Chris Tomlinson.
Man vs MiTo
The race has already taken place, but Alfa hasn't announced the winner yet. It'll tease the results in a series of films while asking the British public to guess the outcome.

Those who guess correctly will be entered into a contest to win an Alfa Romeo mountain bike. Follow the jump for the details in the full press release and check out the images in the gallery for a closer look.

Webber relaxed on future

Mark Webber insists he has no worries about his future in the sport, amid speculation that has linked a number of drivers to his Red Bull seat. The Australian's position at Red Bull has come under increasing scrutiny in the media, with McLaren's Lewis Hamilton in particular being linked to a future Red Bull drive. Webber however is ignoring such speculation, and showed signs of resurgence in the previous Grand Prix at Valencia when he was closer to matching team-mate Sebastian Vettel's pace

Gooden Sweeps Formula F Races at Mid-Ohio

Wrapping-up a sensational professional open-wheel racing debut, former karting and iRacing.com star Wyatt Gooden came out on top of a race-long duel with young Australian Mitch Martin to win his second SCCA F1600 Formula F Championship series race of the weekend Saturday at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The victory gave the 22-year-old from suburban Cleveland a sweep of both Formula F races this weekend at Mid-Ohio, the first time this has been accomplished in the brief, six-race history of the series. Driving for Quantum Racing Services with support from Chris Miles? Starting Grid, Inc. and iRacing.com, Gooden started from the outside of the front row, in second, as he and pole qualifier Martin quickly broke away from the rest of the 25-car starting field.� For the next 15 laps, [...]

Multi-million dollar GMC Futurliner to be auctioned by eBay Motors

Filed under: , ,

GM Futureliner
1939 GM Futurliner - Click above for high-res image gallery

July 8 is National Collector's Car day, and to celebrate, eBay Motors is hosting an auction that should break the site's record for the most expensive vehicle ever sold through the site. One of the nine remaining General Motors Futurliners is set to fetch millions of dollars on the site as its auction runs from June 8 to 18.

This particular example has been meticulously restored by Peter Pan Bus Lines over a total of three years. The 400-horsepower leviathan is 33 feet long and just shy of 12 feet tall. When it was built for the 1939 New York World's Fair, it cost GM around $2 million in today's dollars. (Those of you with long memories may recall that a similar example shattered Barrett-Jackson records when it hammered at $4.1M in 2006).

After the World's Fair, the 12 Futurliners toured the U.S. under the "Parade of Progress" banner, showing the nation the technology of, well, the future. Each bus opened up to display the science behind microwaves, jet propulsion and the like. This particular example was exhumed from a New York corn field in 1997 before being massaged back to life by Coach Builders of Springfield, Massachusetts.

The bidding starts tonight at 9pm Eastern, but for now, you can head over to eBay Motors to learn more about National Collector's Car Day.
