that "badass" CLS is not only a CLS, but a Brabus Rocket from the look of that front bumper. oh and both of those R8s are V10s.


Oh, what are the tell tale signs for identifying them as V10s?   Huh?   I love that blue R8   butt rock

oh yeah, that's definitely a Rocket with those hood vents and side vents. god that is such a menacing looking car. i have to say its ALOT better looking than its G-Power M5 Hurricane competitor.

the wheels, widened intakes on the side, and the dual oval exhaust outlets. on the R8 4.2, they have quad oval outlets.

When asked why they shot the suspect 68 times, Sheriff Grady Judd responded with "That's all the bullets we had."

I went to the Indy Racing League race at Infineon Raceway (aka Sears Point) in Sonoma, CA on Sunday.   The first lap was a fiasco for two of the races.  See below for pics I took at that turn (Turn 2).  And, also pics of a couple drivers I saw.  Tony Kanaan was either having a bad day or he's a pompous douchebag.  When he walked by on the sidewalk his fans yelled enthusiastically "Hey Tony" and he didn't even lift an eyebrow (hopefully just a bad day).  In stark contrast Justin Wilson seemed happy to talk to his fans who gathered to celebrate the event.





In this spec race all cars are prepped equally and the drivers drew straws to determine whose in each car (so no mechanical advantage).  They said the cars weigh 1100 lbs and are powered by 300 hp turbo 4-bangers (suprisingly quiet but that is a good powere to weight ratio. 




















And, the IRL lap 1 pileup affected many cars including Danica Patrick's #7 car.  She ended up finishing 16th.

















#10 Franchitti, #6 Briscoe, & #3 Castroneves domintated the race and ultimatley Franchitti led every lap and won convincingly



Justin Wilson & Tony Kanaan



and of course Danica Patrick

I enlarged and cropped a couple pics from the IRL accident.  You can better see how Danica's orange & black #7 Honda Boost car was sideswiped and forced off into the dirt:

Yeah spowrd, that's one of my favorite cars.  It has kind of a sleeper appeal to me.  Looks like a much cheaper and more common 6-cyl or V8 SL but it has those darker rims and that monster torque V12 BiTurbo  butt rock  Here's a silver one I saw last week too:

I caught only a quick glimpse of the car, but heard him pull away and it was for sure a V12 bi-turbo.
