The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
The 1965 Sebring 12 Hour Grand Prix - Part 1 of 5
The 1965 12 Hours of Sebring Grand Prix is legendary because it was won by
American drivers driving an American car. Jim Hall and his Chaparral cars
broke several speed records but the overall records were not broken because
of the record rainfall half way through the race. That deluge, the worst
in Sebring history, also makes this race a legend. Sit back and enjoy the
race in five parts.
Has Racing Lost Its Credibility? - /SHAKEDOWN
April 2012 VLN, DTM, WRC, WTCC, WC, MotoGP, Porsche Cup race results. AND
the Question of the Show - Has racing lost its CREDIBILITY as a true
expression of automotive performance? Plus, a Leo Parente / ShakeDown
shout-out to Adam Ferrara - Comedian, Actor, Car Guy, Top Gear US Host,
fellow Italian. Stay to the end of this SD and see how his credentials
should matter to you. It's a good way to NOT let 'things' happens. I'm not

DTM Race 1
Porsche IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama
2011 Petit Le Mans - Tommy Milner - Night Practice
Helmet cam video from Thursday night practice at Petit Le Mans. Shows
really pretty well how much we can see in the car at night.
Why Lamborghini Needs More Racing -- /SHAKEDOWN
Leo Parente and ShakeDown presents the case for why Lambo bringing out the
Urus SUV requires the brand to race harder. Then, SD looks at other
brands, like Pirelli and Lotus in the racing news, to show how / why this
sport helps and hurts brand image. No, this is not a Marketing 101 class,
but a way to connect the dots on the headlines in racing this week.
