|World Class Block Party|
NMS is sending out our congratulations to Lewis Hamilton for winning the Formula 1 driver's championship today in Mexico City! This makes Hamilton's 5th championship, and ties him with Juan Manuel Fangio, and puts him one up on Sebastian Vettel and Alain Prost (4 time champs). The only driver ahead of Hamilton now is Michael Schumacher on 7 titles, so it looks likely that Lewis will be challenging for that record in the future.
Winning the race today was 21 year old Max Verstappen, who now has 5 race wins on his resume, and I'm thinking that someday we'll see Max as a world champion too. He drove a great race from 2nd on the grid, took the lead in the first corner, and came home with the victory, so congrats to him and the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing team. Here at NMS North we don't drink a lot of Red Bull or drive an Aston Martin, but of course we're willing to give it a shot for the right price!
|Brian Says Yes, it's FUN!|
Come to think of it, we don't drive a Mercedes like Lewis Hamilton either, or even a Ferrari like Sebastian Vettel. Well shoot, there seem to be a lot of gaps in our driving expensive car resume, I wonder why? (think, think, think) Oh now I remember, because we're not rich yet!
Speaking of driving nice cars, the NMS drivers are both available for a full time Formula 1 seat next year, and as of this writing there are a few teams looking for drivers in 2019. With that in mind, I'd like to remind the Williams and Toro Rosso teams that both Brian and I will be driving at the 24 Hours of Lemons LEMONS race at Carolina Motorsports Park next weekend, that's November 3-4, in South Carolina, which is easily accessible from the Charlotte NC airport!
|Ready To Race Again!|
Brian and Team Coronautski will be wheeling the purple Coronet on track, while I'll be sharing driving with the Altimate Driving Experience 1990s Nissan Altima (Altima = Altimate, get it?) trying to stay on track and keep the darn thing running. Besides driving on track, YOU can visit Camden SC on Friday November 2nd from 6-9PM for the ONLY Lemons Block Party in the country, and meet and greet all the drivers and their hunks of junk racing machines, enjoy some live music, and join in the general frivolity for a few hours before the racing starts Saturday at 10am.
We hope to see you there, especially if you are looking to hire some good drivers for next year!
