speedorama 2009

The Motion Custom Car Show will make it’s debut this year at the Direct Energy Center, Exhibition Place, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The show opens Friday March 27, 2009 at 10am and ends Sunday March 29th at 6pm. This show used to be branded as Speedorama but seeing that Speedorama 2009 was canceled, it’s now called the Motion Custom Car Show.

After attending this years 2009 Performance World – Photos and 2009 Performance World Girls which was pretty much a repeat of all the same cars as Performance World 2008 Car Photos, I really hope this newly branded event offers some new cars and some NEW CarZi Babes.

Checkout 2008 Speedorama Car Photos, 2008 Speedorama Show Girls Pictures.

Gimme a yell if you see me at the show, stay tuned for the PICTURES 😉

2009 Formula 1 Rule Changes Video

f1-2009-2

In the first video, Sebastian Vettel explains the 2009 Formula 1 rule changes with the assistance of some pretty wicked awesome animations. The coolest new rule allows for regenerative braking system (called KERS – kinetic energy recovery systems) utilizing a battery to store the energy created when braking. This system will give each driver a 6.5 seconds boost of 82hp per lap! The second video is similar to the first but incorporates some of the F1 drivers (Lewis Hamilton) and their thoughts on the upcoming changes.

This past weekend in Sweden, the upcoming Ferrari F430 replacement (codename Ferrari F142) known to us as the Ferrari F450 was spied during some of it’s cold weather testing.

This iteration of Ferrari’s RWD supercar is rumored to potentially have 520+ hp which would make it even more bastardly fast and powerful than the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. (those amateur monkeys over at WorldCarFans.com called it a F430 Scuderia AGAIN… there is no F in 430 Scuderia for F sake)

2009 has not been a wonderful year so far in the automotive world. So far we have seen Honda’s F1 Racing come to an end and Audi Leave the American Le Mans Series. NASCAR on the other hand has only lost 6% of it’s 2009 sponsorship money.

A recent report by IEG has found that North American companies have netted $3.3 Billion USD for racing sponsorships in 2009. This figure only represents a $200 Million USD drop from 2008 and is the first time NASCAR has seen a dip in sponsorship in 20 years!
