Red Bull Air Race

I must admit that I am aware that this has nothing to do with motoring, but since these aircraft have been described as race cars with wings I thought I would use a little bit of poetic licence.

I watched the latest leg of the Red Bull Air Race and was blown away by the skill and expertise these world class sportsman exhibit.

Its amazing to think that these guys do all this in 3 dimensions without a bumper bashing to show for it and they do it all at speeds faster than the average idiot on our roads. (Hows that for bringing it back to being about cars?)

My two year old son (Who is car mad) stood in front of the TV the whole show making airplane noises and going wow. Echoing my sentiments.

The Art of Urban 4x4ing

I have come across a niche market for all those entrepreneur's out there in the car industry.

We have a predominance of four wheel drive owners who have not truly come to grips with their vehicles capabilities.

I reckon there is a market for instructors who are willing to teach the Urban 4x4er how to best utilise his vehicle for optimal parking arrangements.

Why park blocks away when you can park on the pavement.

I mean that's what you bought your 4x4 for. Isn't it?
