2014 marks 5 consecutive years, thanks Honda!
Cheered hard for James Hinchcliffe, Honda’s driver and only Canadian in the race. Felt for you on those 2 setbacks. Your time is coming, don’t be worried.
(great shot eh, it’s Kanishka’s)
I asked James about how he’s able to concentrate deeply for so long, that’s the topic for this week’s column.
That part is so interesting to me, because really, every single thing, all the tech, design, money and math that are poured into this car, are all superfluous if the driver’s focus wavers.
As close as you can get, to the fastest point,
with the most noise. Earplugs out always.
This is just before turn 3, the carnage corner.
Most crashes happen on this ridiculousness, are you kidding this turn.
I got this scarf printed in the paper HAHA.
It’s the photo for a column, one of my new favourites: The Mystery of the Checkered Flag
5 Year Highlights include:
1 – the 2012 Backstage Tour of the Indy here
2 – in 2011, I attended both days here & here (ask me about this entrance IRL)
3 – security at the Indy here
4 – the steering wheel, and what $20,000 in tires looks like
5 – five years of this sound…
Forever a ‘Top 3 Favourite Sound’
The original Civic was on display!
1973 – 40 years old now.
Here’s some history of this car; I wrote a ‘then & now’, and used it to illustrate – When the Side Mirror was Optional
And then there was a 4th Generation Civic, a forever favourite, it gets its own post.
And did you know Honda makes the world’s only manual transmission hybrid – the Honda CRZ.
Thanks for 5 amazing years Honda!
Here’s to your team this summer, wishing you lots of wins.
