Watch A Big Wheel Run Down The Laguna Seca Corkscrew: Video
I bet I could beat it on my Skateboard (LOL)....Some people just have 2 much time on their hands (LOL) Some interesting 'rides below + some good infor > EnJoy

By Jeff Glucker 18 hours ago


Most who've driven Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will tell you that the infamous Corkscrew is far from the most challenging turn on the course. They're right... but that doesn't matter because it remains one of the most iconic turns in motorsports. The reason behind it is due to the massive elevation change coupled with a nearly blind entry point that sees the car going from a nearly nose up position into a steep nose down position in a matter of seconds. It's a thrill ride.

It's quite entertaining in a car, but what would it be like on a big wheel?
ESPN Pit Reporter Taro Koki found out a few years ago when he strapped a few cameras to the kids toy, and then he himself climbed aboard to take it through turns 8 and 8A. Actually, he managed to work up enough speed to continue on through Turns 9 and 10 before coming to a rest outside of the Pit In section before Turn 11. Now we think Taro should up the danger a bit next time by using a Power Wheels toy and adding in a few folks to turn it into a race.

Yes, we are in fact raising our hand to throw down at the Corkscew... your move Taro.

May 2: General Motors buys Chevrolet on this date in 1918

By Justin Hyde May 2, 2014 7:30 AM Motoramic

William Crapo Durant built the original General Motors from pieces of several other automakers, but his aggressive acquisitions got him kicked out of his own company in 1910. (Among the deals he wanted to do but couldn't? Buying out Henry Ford for $8 million). As revenge, Durant went out and started another automaker Chevrolet, named for the Swiss racing driver Louis Chevrolet, shown here parading Durant around the track. When Chevy began to grow quickly, Durant made GM shareholders an offer they couldn't refuse: five shares of Chevrolet for every one of GM. On May 2, 1918, the deal ended with GM owning Chevrolet and Durant in charge of both. Durant would last two more years before being ousted again, later losing much of his fortune in the Great Depression; he spent a few years running a chain of bowling alleys near Flint, Mich., and died in poverty in 1947. Every GM chief executive since has learned this tale by heart.
