This weekend we have a motorsport quadruple play; Formula 1, WRC, ALMS and an IndyCar Series street race all rolled in one. Redbull Racings F1 team was as impressive as ever in Malaysia last week. The WRC 2011 Season has started off as anyone's to take, rather than the typical dominance expected by Citroen's Sebastien Loeb. And last but not least, Simona De Silvestro has been living up to the hype in IndyCar thus far. Enjoy the race weekend...and the first round of the NBA Playoffs (oops).

Quick Vid: The F1 Report - Round 2 (AutomotiveTV)

While scouring the web I found this F1 coverage series that may turn out to be a great addition to our lineup of posts for our F1 enthusiast contingent. I'm happy that someone is doing a webisode style show covering the F1 season round by round. Please note that this video was made (to be viewed) prior to this past weekends Malaysian GP, so no 'spoiler alert' needed this time around; but seriously, you should have watched it by now.

Car Pron: MIVW 2009 (by Loniek/Wolfsgruppe)

I've been collecting parts on a weekly basis to refresh the daily and I'm finally getting off the couch and into the garage. I have a handful of small projects I want to get done before the oppressive summer heat rolls in, which got me on a show video kick. Having your ride look it's best is always the goal, so why not see some cars that live up to this bill. This time around we're going back two years for the MIVW 2009 show video recap by Wolfsgruppe.
