Today I was in Ben Sayer, PR Manager of ProDrive. If you are a bit interested on world rally championship, I am sure you know ProDrive. They worked with Porsche, Subaru, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Mini. Their job is to develop cars for racing, especially for word rally championship.
For me it was a great experience to visit ProDrive and see their heritage cars. Since I was a kid, I always heard ProDrive on TV but did not have opportunity to visit their head office. Thanks to Ben, I have been to head office of the legendary ProDrive.
In interview; Ben and I talked about future world rally championship (RedBull will in WRC), how live coverage of French WRC stage will be, history of ProDrive and their engagement with manufacturers, of course social media.
It was great to hear that ProDrive appreciates the works of bloggers and doing their best for us to create our content.
It was a great interview and great experience to be in ProDrive. I am sure you will like the interview and have an opportunity to see how the head office ProDrive looks like :)
Today I attended to Autosport International Show in Birmingham, UK. I can summarise it with one word, amazing. If you are interested on automotive and you want to see everything in one place, there is no better option than this. I saw the Bugatti Veyron’s brake disk, Mercedes SLS AMG GT3, Lexus LFA, Ferrari 458, new BMW M5 and 3 Series, Formula 1 Cars, new Porsche 911 and 918RSR and many more. If you have time, you should come and visit. You can find the ticket and other information below.
I would like to thank you Brits who are following my blog despite adverse weather conditions :) And I could imagine how dreadful the UK weather can become. Now, it became worse! Snow is not something very common to see in UK and most of the drivers and cars are not prepared for this. I already mentioned about snow tyres in UK and I do hope that demand to snow tyres are booming :) Also I have one more suggestion to British drivers. As I saw on TV, many cars were not able to move due to lack of traction, or lack of snow chain. However there was no one to sell them snow chains in those bad conditions. I think of a new type of job should be created; snow chain emergency selling teams! When there are too much snow and people forget to bring their snow chain with them, these teams could sell them ;) They are doing this in Turkey! And people don’t forget their snow chains :)
There is also one more solution which is tried by Ken Blocks with his Subaru Impreza STi. With his snow cars, Impreza turned into a Siberian Tiger (These tigers are living in snow! or in others Tigers with better handling). And Ken doesn’t suffer any adverse effects of snow and having really good time! My advice is to buy snow cats and turn your snow torture into snow entertainment ;) I don’t know very well but I think you need to have four wheel drives to use these things properly.
And yes, I want to hear, which type of cars did not suffer from snow? Hmm, I am guessing four wheel drives! As I guess, most of the people hate them, because they were killing planet. Everything is going well on earth and SUVs are the only bad things! However this suggestion is not true anymore, the best car is SUV. If you want to survive, your wheels have to be rolling ;)
