Quick Vid: VW Scirocco R and R Cup

Unfortunately we didn't get this little gem in the US, but what else is new. The good news is there are international automotive journalists that bring us reviews of this latest generation of Scirocco so that we can live vicariously. The icing on the cake is that this review includes testing of the VW Scirocco R Cup. CC is available for all of you that don't speak Dutch.

Video Series: Chris Harris drives an F1 car.

With the Formula 1 season over, I still get a hankerin' for more action. I'm looking forward to the 2011 season already and while searching the web...well...I'm so gd happy I found these videos. As I've stated many times before (and many more to come) Chris Harris is my favorite automotive journalist and to have him go through the growing pains of learning to drive an F1 (albeit a chassis from 08' - mark webbers old) and share it is an absolute joy. This post is for me, actually. Yea I said it! I'm sure many of you will feel the same way though, so it's a win win ha.

Learning more about what goes into being a driver at this level is always awesome. Thank you Autocar and Chris. Seriously.
