The 24 Hours of Le Mans

The main sports car event for the year is almost here, the 24 hours of Le Mans. A points paying round for participants in the International Le Mans Cup, it is important to perform well. Look forward to seeing a grand total of 56 prototypes, and GT cars on the grid this June.

Will Peugeot make it to the end or will there be another disaster ahead for them? Will Audi complete the race without major time lost in the pits? Will Corvette return to the top podium spot after dual engine failures took both of the cars out last year? The race will start on Saturday June 11th and finish on Sunday the 12th.

Not Forgotten!

I have not forgotten about this blog. I have just been very busy as of late, and have also though about switching to a different blogging site. For now though, I will be staying on this site! Look for my thoughts on the feasibility of electric cars later this week.

The tip for the month is to check your tire pressure monthly. On average tires lose between one to two psi (pounds per square inch) a month. If not check this can lead to excessive tire wear or at the most tire blow out. It will help your fuel economy as under inflated tires cause the vehicle to have to work harder as there is more rolling resistance.
