guess that’s what happens when Yuhs Step Away from the Intrawoodz’
for a little while. Or le Deush’, aka ESPN2 Whimsically Decides to
Change it’s Airtimes, Eh?
where are Yuhs Doctor John? As you’ll understand why that ‘Ol
Tune ‘bout being in the Right Place at the Wrong Time immediately
sprang to mind late Friday night (December 4th)
after I’d sent my Sports Car Fantasia post the the Printers so to
speak, albeit apparently Ye Printing Press on Nofendersville Isle
runs on Island Times itself, Hya!
Dr. John – Right Place, Wrong Time
Kudos to Blogmeister Miguel who’s continued posting my few No
Fenders rants whenever possible! Due to Ye Myriad ‘O Confuzer
Technology issues continuously Swamping your Head Scribe Tomaso’s
“log cabin” on thoust Isle of Nofendersville, but I digress!
I Burst Out laughing when hearing the News via my NFB Newsline for
The Blind’s ESPN Online Motorsports Headlines section that Jimmy
Johnson and a different All Star Cast would be piloting the #48
Action Express Racing’s (AXR) Caddilac Dpi VR at the fast
approaching 2021 24 Hours of Daytona, slated for January 30-31.
Silly Me! Thinking that just because ‘Ol JJ’, nee Jimmy Johnson
had joined forces with Thee Cheepster’, nee Chip Ganassi to pilot
the eponymous Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) Championship Calibre Squad’s
newly anointed #48 Dallaran/Honda IndyCar beginning in 2021 on the
Twisties’ portion of the NTT IndyCar Series calendar, nee Temporary
Street Circuits & Permanent Road Courses. Whith his “Good
Budddy” TK’ Follow-your-Schnoz! Kanaan running the Ovals - He’d
be racing the 3.56 mile Daytona International Speedway’s road
course for CGR this coming January.
Johnson will be contesting the Rolex 24 aboard one Bad Arse Motor
Finger’ of a Caddy’ from a Brother of a Different Mother’s All
Star Driving line-up! As Jimmy will be joined behind the Keyboard of
his borrowed number 48 Prototype’s mount with Symone’, nee
Pageantry’, aka Simon Pagenaud, the 2019 Indianapolis 500 Winner
and 2016 IndyCar Series Champion. Mike Rocky’ rockenfeller, a
previous Rolex 24 winner, ironically with AXR in 2010. Plus Overall
victory in the 2010 24 Heurs du Mans, alon with being the 2013 DTM
but certainly Not least of this AXR Mega’ Driver’s Quartet is One
of my favourite Under-appreciated Sports Car Aces, affectionately
known here at No Fenders simply as “K Squared,” aka Kamui
Kobayashi who sports two Rolex time-pieces from winning the 2019-2020
Daytona 24 Hours with Wayne Taylor Racing. (WTR)
Paul Miller Racing, who campaigns a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo in
the GT Daytona (GTD) class, will loan it’s traditional car number
48 to Johnson and Action Express Racing’s effort, run in
conjunction with Hendrick Motorsports to honour the Seven Times
the reigning Cup Champion Chase Elliot who’ll also be racing in the
2021 Rolex 24, will presumably be making his Sports Car Prototypes
Debut when he Co-Drives the team’s Full-season mount, the #31
Whelend Engineering Caddy’ with it’s Drivers Pipo
Felipe Nasr, joined by Mike “Ice-Ice, Baby!” Conway Me Thinks.
Chip Ganassi Racing will certainly only be running it’s lone
Caddilac Dpi VR at Daytona with Haas F1 Team Castoff Kevin Bacon’
Magnussen and Renger
van der Zande. While
Arse-sumedly Scotty thee Iceman 2.0’ Dixon will be it’s Endurance
Rounds Chauffeur, leaving me to guess that Tony Kanaan will be it’s
fourthHot Schue’ at Day-Toner’, Eh?
once again, the Wrong Time! As I just naturally Arse-sumed that
Formula 1 would be on at Oh DARK-30’, and although quite curious
over how George Russell would perform in Lewis Hamilton’s Merc’,
I hadn’t planned on getting up to watch Bahrain’s Double Header’s
Sekir GP Qualifying session. Yet my internal clock wouldn’t let me
sleep, so I decided I might as well get up at 6:20AM to “Watch,”
Err listen to the end of Qualie’ Saturday morning.
on Thy Telie’, I was immediately Cornfuzed’ over Martin Billybob’
Brundle talking leisurely from one of the track’s corners before
they went to commercial, which they Don’t do during live
Qualifying. So I had to Chuckle over having guessed that the listing
for F1 Racing from 5:55-7AM Pacific was the third F1 Practice session
with 2hrs and 10mins remaining for la Scuderia (Ferrari) to change
‘lil Syd’ viddle’s Power Unit, nee PU, I’d get to watch the
entire Qualie’ session Commercial Free at a Uber’ pleasing 8:55AM
naturally the Debate will still be raging on over the Off Season
regarding Russell’s magnificent performance in Golden Child’s
mount, the All conquering Mercedes W11
Russell at 6-feet 2-inches tall, is quite a bit taller than Lewis
Hamilton, as the 22yr Old Russell even had to resort to wearing
Driving Boots one size too Small for him to fit into Hamilton’s
we know that George qualified P2 behind Valtteri Bottas on Pole by
0.026 of a second! Not to mention simply Waxing Valtteri in the race,
that Russell clearly should have Won on his Werks’ Mercedes F1
Mercedes had what Team Principal Toto Wolff said on TV. I know I’m
Not supposed to say this but it was a Collosal Fuck Up! Regarding the
team’s attempt at Double Stacking it’s cars during the Safety Car
period ironically caused by Jack Aiken substituting in Russell’s
normal Team Willy’, nee Williams F1 mount!
we All know that Mercedes uncharacteristically got it All Wrong,
putting Bottas Front tyres on Russell’s Merc’, which is strictly
Verbotten! As it just went All Pear shaped for both Mercedes Drivers
from there, leading to a very popular Debutante Win for Sergio Perez
after 10yrs and 190 Starts in Formula 1!
while I won’t dispute that Lewis Hamilton’s an Amazingly talented
Driver, I still Bristle over his Arrogant Quote after winning the
Turkish Grand Prix ‘bout how now you cannot say it’s just the
car, as I lapped my team-mate today who’s in a similar car.
Excuse me Lewis, but it is the Car! And would you be cleaning Nico
Rosberg’s Clock weekly if he was still your team-mate? As Bottas
is NO Slouch, but it’s painfully clear that he’s just a No. 2
Driver who’s not only had rotten luck, but I’d surmise has been
Beaten Down by Toto Wolff Always putting things in your favour Lewis!
Don’t get me Wrong, Hamilton’s abundantly talented behind the
wheel, whilst Russell was eager to seize his golden opportunity. As
the lanky Brit has plenty of talent himself, having won both of
today’s FIA Formula 3 and Formula 2 championships before graduating
to Formula 1 with Team Willy’ as a Mercedes Junior driver.
like Max Verstappen has said previously I believe. How many other
Drivers on the F1 Grid would Blitz the field in the Mercedes? And
would we be “Lionizing” Sir Lewis if he’d been driving the
Williams All thise years instead?
