Two Italian Marques Perish, NASCAR Driver on Hot Seat and Female F1 driver improving...

It’s amazing what happens when you’re away from thy Confuzer - as the Vurld der Motorsporten never sleeps, Ja-Ja! As I had NO clue to any of the following “B-I-G” Ticket items that occurred during my 10-day Safari, with obviously the most shocking being Maria de Villota’s frighteningly horrific accident!

Marussia Test Driver improving...
By now I’m sure Y’all have heard of the freakish testing accident female F1 hopeful Maria de Villota suffered when performing a straight-line aerodynamic test for the Marussia F1 team.

De Villota’s Marussia MR-01 chassis apparently had a case of unintended acceleration causing the 32-year old Spaniard to crash into the back of a parked support vehicle...

As I first learned the chilling news whilst watching my taped British GP Qualifying show this Monday afternoon; where SPEED’s Bob Varsha announced that De Villota had undergone 12-hours of surgery after striking the lift gate of a team support truck - which she struck with her helmet! And although Maria lost her right eye, was now in serious-but-stable condition...


GOOD LUCK MARIA!

What Happened to Allmendinger?
Returning home from Vancouver and sitting down to hopefully watch my taped coverage of the Silverstone F1 Qualifying - whilst rewinding duh tape I was greeted to the ‘RASSCAR HUB Talking Head exclaiming how’d they’d delve into Sam “I AM” Hornish getting the call that changed his life forever; HUH? So I actually waited to see what that was all about? As I was still cornfuzed over why Hornish was pressed into service to drive The Captain’s No. 22 Sprint Cup Challenger... Oh Whale, I’d rather watch the RAINED OUT Formula 1 ‘Qualie coverage instead...

Thus imagine my surprise when Indiana Bureau Chief Danny B clued me into A.J. Allmendinger’s failed drug test; Aye Karumba! As after all he reminded me of Allmendinger’s past DUI; OOPSADAISY!

As for AJ’s career - as I did enjoy him in Champ Car, I sincerely hope the matter is quickly resolved and that Allmendinger is cleared! As it’d be a tad too bit ironic for Roger Penske to first haveda fire Kurt “GFYS!” Busch and then have Allmendinger further blemish his copybook, eh? As hopefully this is just a really BAD mistake by NASCAR?


Renowned Automobili Marques Suffer Blows
Perhaps Y’all have heard that Sergio Pininfarina has died at the age of 85. As Sergio was the Italian design company’s chief and styling maestro for some five decades as overseer of la Scuderia’s supple bodywork... Including the magnificent Ferrari 250 GTO...

Meanwhile, according to Joe Saward, another revered Italian coachwork builder is set to bite the dust - with the sad news of De Tomaso’s impending failure which you can read more about in;
