Upcoming Car Racing Events in July
Big news in racing and Shakedown for the coming month. The show will be taking a month-long break this summer but today's episode will recap all the racing news you need to know about for the weeks ahead. Hosted by Leo Parente.
Upcoming Car Racing Events in July
Male: Let’s start with some news not bad news but important ShakeDown news. This
show is going on Haidus in July, this is not some not really truth word play. It's a real
Haidus. I'm calling for it and I will be back the first Friday in August the 6th. Why is this
Haidus? Three reasons, one this show has no budget and it needs money to grow. You
think I like doing green screen all the time when there's a world of racing out there? I
have a vision, it needs a budget.
Number two JF edit ShakeDown, thanks JF. But in July, he's going to busy on the road
editing the Bullrun videos July 9 through 16th to bee seen on BlackMagicShine.com and
The Smoking Tire. And with the tiny team FLD has, there's no one to take up the slack to
edit ShakeDown but three most importantly, given the options between writing more
ShakeDown scripts and hitting the bricks to find a ShakeDown sponsor, I opt for going
all Glengarry, Glen Russ.
Coffee is for closers and we need the buzz. We need the box. For this ShakeDown, I'll
leave you with some heads up notes on what to watch for with the racing in July and then
I’ll be back on August. Oh, in between, I’ll be doing a guess test on FLDetours where the
Nissan 370Z. Hey JF, Richard Murray from downtown wanted me to tell you about the
new contest for auto stream producers. Do you have the steak knives they’ve sent you? I
can start the explanation from there. Want to hear about third price?
Black Magic is sponsoring Matt Farah to race in the Bullrun Rally July 9th through 16th.
Matt’s going to post videos every single day on BlackMagicShine.com and
TheSmokingTire.com so you guys should probably go check that out.
Derek D.: Race, racing it's not a race and Matt Farah is not a race car driver. I mean
he's a world class party boy but it's going to be the Ford, Mustang, Shelby GT500 is
going to shine not as—
Male: True Matt thinks hitting the apex is going to a club in Vegas but I think you’re
just angry because you’re not driving and he is. Let’s be honest.
Derek D.: Maybe, maybe but I guess we should all be happy he is Matt enough to
capture all the photo on camera.
Male: That good, Matt enough I like that. Yeah, so remember to check out daily videos
July 9th through 16th. And if you want to throw a joke about Matt’s sideburns, go ahead
and do that too. Is that what a sideburn look like?
Derek D.: Sideburns, Matt Burns.
Male: I wasn’t sure.
Derek D.: Chops.
Male: In July, the first thing you need to pay attention to is this weekend’s Good Wood
Festival Speed. Cars, star drivers, the famous hill climb, runs and more. Next also this
weekend, NASCAR wait, in the nationwide race tonight Mustang and Challenger will
debut. The Dodge actually looks okay. Don’t watch the race but pay attention to the after
buzz because if the acceptance is good it will pave the way for more NASCAR bravery to
get the cars more in synced with real cars. Fuel injection is next and maybe finally specs
more like the Ozy V8s.
Speaking of which only one race for the V8 super cars in July, the ninth through the 11th,
championships are close heading into the second half but even if they’re not, the action is
great. And we’ll get back to covering this series when I get back because they’re planning
new specs to bring in more manufacturers. BMW, Mercedes, Nissan, Hyundai, they’re all
rumored. F1 in July, two races, Silverstone and Hockenheim. To manage as simple as
this, if Alonzo and Ferrari don’t score big in July, the 2010 championship will be at two-
team battle. Watch for a car updates, drivers that perform under pressure and the missteps
of those who can not. Watch Webber and Fernando closely.
Watch teams like Mercedes as they shift development to 2011. Le Mans racing in July,
two ALMS events, Salt Lake City and Lime Rock Park where I made break hiatus and
Corvette racing Doug Fehan accountable for the interviews he promised me but then
ditched me. To be fair, maybe you dropped the ball with me because he was too busy
picking up the valves Corvette dropped at Le Mans.
In Europe, one Le Mans race July 16th through 17th, a night even in Portugal. An FIA GT
action this weekend in Mont-Vent, GT1 has the Nissan GT-Rs; GT3 has the Audi R8
which rumors are louder say they are coming to ALMS. WRC, two events to see if Ford
can close in on Citroen and the bikes MotoGP and World Superbike are stateside in
Laguna July 23rd.
See, next year when ShakeDown has a budget, guess where I should be? Either way I
hope Lorenzo goes all robot on the corkscrew. Grand day in Daytona and New Jersey in
July and three IRL races all road courses. But here is my take, Grand-Am, who cares?
But Ferrari’s tire performance scares me to think they are the new 2011 F1 supplier. And
I mentioned IRL even though they’re on the ShakeDown dead to me list, have you
watched for the pending news about the chassis announcement due in July which couple
with the recent turbo engine decision could attract new manufactures and get them off the
DTM list. But if they kick that Luke Skywalker Battlestar Galactica deviant, DTM for
Formula D had a race July 9th getting in the dash or keeping it close with Tanner Larkin.
Redline time attack is in California this weekend and there must be events all over the
continents, time attack. The football of racing with leagues and racing everywhere but no
floppy World Cup simulations, just real action. Round five, Super GT on July 24th, Hues
tuning left a great tip on the last ShakeDown comment area. Go to PM910’s YouTube
channel to catch downloads of the Japan action. Thanks, which gets me to my closet in
July, leave me comments and questions about topics and info would like me to cover on
ShakeDown when I get back. And by the way, JF and I are not going to leave in the dark
with these next few weeks.
Still clicking on Friday as we’ll be posting five or six minutes of racing car prime. Now
it's time for me to go work on my Arnold Terminator “I’ll be back voice” but no way.
Frank Caliendo, I am not, later.
