Sebastian Vettel driving GT5 RedbullX1 prototype at Nürburgring GP Course
Find more GT5 videos on http://gtchannel.com. In a world where modern
professional racing is restricted by regulations, the X1 is a machine born
from a fantastic "what if" dream of Gran Turismo: "What would the fastest
racing car on Earth, free of any and all regulations, look like?" And the
only way to experience it is in Gran Turismo 5. Initially the X1 Prototype
was a single-seater canopied prototype wing car with covered front wheels.
Powered by a 1500ps direct-injection V6 Twin turbo, on paper the performance would have been
spectacular, producing a top speed of 400km/h (248.6mp/h) and a maximum
lateral acceleration of 6G. But once Red Bull Racing was brought on board
to be a partner, the X1 really took off. Adrian Newey, master aerodynamic
engineer and Red Bull Racing's chief technical officer, suggested "Fan Car"
technology, a long-held dream of his, be added to the design of the X1
Prototype. A "fan car" is a vehicle having a fan mechanism which forces the
air out from underneath the car to reduce air pressure under the car's
floor. The resulting suction draws the car to the ground surface and
creates a massive amount of downforce. And because it can create downforce
regardless of the vehicle's current speed, it dramatically raises it's
cornering speed capability even in low speed corners. Thanks to the insight
of Mr. Newey, the X1 Prototype design was transformed. A large fan was
added to the rear end of the body to implement the Fan Car technology.
Plus, Newey provided additional input into the the design of the front and
rear wings and rear diffuser, dramatically refining the vehicle's
aerodynamics. As a result, the virtual X1 Prototype was able to achieve an
astonishing level of performance. Its new top speed was 450km/h
(279.6mp/h), with a maximum lateral acceleration reaching up to 8.75G,
pushing the vehicle to the very limits of what a normal human body can
Radical Formula One Car: Tyrell P34
Ken Tyrell and his designer, Derek Gardner created a six wheeled racing car
in 1976, the P34. This car was radical in that it's front wheels were four,
in tandem, 10 inch wheels. It won one race but would have had a successful
run in Goodyear had developed the front tires. www.thedrivechannel.com

Chaparral 2J @ 2005 Monterey Historics
Demonstration laps of the Chaparral 2J driven by Vic Elford during the 2005
Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca. The 2J had two fans at the rear driven
by a snowmobile engine to evacuate air from beneath the car, sucking the
car to the road. In the video you can hear the snowmobile engine over the

F1 - 1980 Monaco GP - Derek Daly crash
The 1980 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monaco on
May 18, 1980. It was the sixth round of the 1980 Formula One season. The
race was the 38th Monaco Grand Prix. The race was held over 76 laps of the
3.34-kilometre circuit for a total race distance of 254 kilometres.
It was won by Carlos Reutemann driving a Williams FW07B. The win was
Reutermann's tenth Formula One victory and his first since the 1978 United
States Grand Prix. He also became the fifth winner in six races of the 1980
season. Reutemann won by 1 minute and 13 seconds over French driver Jacques
Laffite driving Ligier JS11/15. Third was Brazilian driver Nelson Piquet
driving a Brabham BT49. Piquet's third place moved him past René Arnoux
and Alan Jones into the lead of the world championship for the first time.
The race however is remembered for a memorable and spectacular crash at the
start of the race when Derek Daly collided with Bruno Giacomelli's Alfa
Romeo 179, which sent Daly's Tyrrell 010 flying over Giacomelli and landing
between teammate Jean-Pierre Jarier and Alain Prost's McLaren M29. All four
drivers were out on the spot, but none suffered any serious injury. Jan
Lammers also collected damage in his ATS D4 but was able to continue. The
accident was particularly disappointing for McLaren after John Watson
failed to qualify for Monaco's shortened 20 car grid.
Fourth was West German driver Jochen Mass driving an Arrows A3 one lap down
on Reutemann ahead of Canadian Gilles Villeneuve in a Ferrari 312T5. A
further lap down in sixth was dual-World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi in a
Fittipaldi F7. For Mass and Fittipaldi it would be last world championship
points they would collect.
Reutemann's win put Williams in the lead of the constructor's points race
by five points over Ligier.

Andreas Nikolaus "Niki" Lauda (born February 22, 1949) is an Austrian
former Formula One racing driver and three-time F1 World Champion. More
recently an aviation entrepreneur, he has founded and run two airlines and
was manager of the Jaguar Formula One racing team for two years. He is
currently working as a pundit for German TV during Grand Prix weekends and
acts as non-executive chairman of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.
Lauda returned to running his airline, Lauda Air, on his second Formula One
retirement in 1985. During his time as airline manager, he was appointed
consultant at Ferrari as part of an effort by Montezemolo to rejuvenate the
team. After selling his Lauda Air shares to majority partner Austrian
Airlines in 1999, he managed the Jaguar Formula One racing team from 2001
to 2002. In late 2003, he started a new airline, Niki. Lauda holds a
commercial pilot's license and from time to time acts as a captain on the
flights of his airline.
He was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1993 and
since 1996 has provided commentary on Grands Prix for Austrian and German
television on RTL. He was, however, rapped for calling Robert Kubica a
"polack" on air in May 2010 at the Monaco Grand Prix.
Niki Lauda has written five books: The Art and Science of Grand Prix
Driving (titled Formula 1: The Art and Technicalities of Grand Prix Driving
in some markets) (1975); My Years With Ferrari (1978); The New Formula One:
A turbo Age (1984); Meine Story (titled
To Hell and Back in some markets) (1986); Das dritte Leben (1996).
Lauda credits Austrian journalist Herbert Volker with editing the books.
Lauda is sometimes known by the nickname "the rat", "SuperRat" or "King
Rat" because of his prominent bucked teeth. He has been associated with
both Parmalat and Viessmann, sponsoring his ever faithful 'cappy' from 1976
onwards, used to hide the severe burns he sustained in his 1976 accident.
Lauda admitted in a 2009 interview with the German newspaper Die Zeit that
an advertiser currently pays €1.2m for the space on his famous red
In 2005 the Austrian post office issued a stamp honouring him. In 2008,
American sports television network ESPN ranked him 22nd on their top
drivers of all-time.
In September 2012 he was appointed non-executive chairman of the Mercedes
AMG Petronas F1 Team. He took part in the negotiations of signing Lewis
Hamilton to a three-year deal with AMG Mercedes.
