Max "The Naz" Mosley in hot water! If you haven't been keeping up with the latest here's a brief of what he's been up to...

Courtesy of The SUN (UK)

FORMULA One racing chief Max Mosley will NOT be sacked over a sadistic Nazi orgy with five call girls, it was revealed last night. Mosley, 67, was filmed playing a SS death-camp commmandant barking orders in German and lashing uniformed girls in a five-hour video. The married dad-of-two - son of infamous wartime fascist Sir Oswald Mosley - also posed as a concentration camp victim having his genitals inspected before being whipped until his buttocks bled. But last night F1’s governing body the FIA said he would keep his job as president after Friday’s orgy at a flat in London’s Chelsea was exposed by the News Of The World.
A spokesman said: “As far as the FIA is concerned, this is a matter between Mr Mosley and the newspaper.” He added that Mosley’s lawyers were “in touch” with the paper.

And this today ....

FORMULA One racing chief Max Mosley has apologised over his sadism orgy. The FIA president admitted the sex session with five call girls was “embarrassing”. Mosley, 67 - son of wartime fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley - said he spoke German while being spanked because it was the native tongue of two of the hookers. And he insisted it was wrong to suggest “some Nazi connotation to the matter”.
But ex-world champ Jody Scheckter called on the dad of two to quit, adding: “There is absolutely no question in my mind he should resign.”
Long-time adversary Sir Jackie Stewart added: “He has to look carefully at his role.”
Meanwhile Mosley insisted he will continue, adding: “I have received a lot of messages of support.”

SACEWE! Should Max"The Naz" Mosley resign???

Waterworld of Mosport 2007 (S/\C #1)

Whoa! I survived!!! I made it through four days of the American LeMans Series weekend at Mosport! In what's looking like typical weather now for this race series when it visits here we saw lots and lots of water. I arrived around 10:15 am Thursday at gate #6 - bottom of hill east of exit of turn #1 tunnel - just as the clouds had cleared up leaving behind what looked like the aftermath of a monsoon. With a river of water still flowing 3" deep through the entry gates I pulled up to the attendant with weekend pass in hand. He proudly showed me the high watermark of 15 minutes prior on the calf of his pant leg - he was soaked! There were pieces of asphalt and various debris that had washed down into the ditch alongside the pavement - they had been flushed through the tunnel from the infield! This was just the beginning of what some (possibly fortunate) people who stayed home missed. Personally, I loved every minute. Thursday night we received another thunderous ovation and accompanying deluge that kept most awake.

On Friday the heavy rains returned in the morning, red flagging track activities, and an actual waterfall appeared just west of the track to the side of the tunnel under turn one. I have never seen it rain that hard at Mosport. Every morning the fog lay so thick that the race schedule had to be delayed as no one could see from one marshal to the next.

The number of race participant trailers and equipment, crew etc. seemed to be huge this year even overflowing into the family camping and go-kart track facilities to the west of turn 8. No wonder with all the series represented. Spectator numbers were down significantly Saturday but rebounded to sport record levels on race day. All the hills were covered and stands packed - it was shoulder to shoulder at Corner 2.

The #7 Penske Porche

Biggest news of the day was Porche beat the Audi! That's right Alan McNish finished SACond 19.5 seconds behind Timo Bernhard's LMP2 Penske Porche. Having regained the lead up to 20 minutes from the end after having gearbox troubles towards the final few laps. He struggled through turn 5 with it stuck in 4th - how that's even possible I don't know - but as Alex Bartels puts it "torque baby, I keep telling you - torque!".

Ron Fellows, flashing his new white Corvette and racing for the last time with the Corvette Racing team, finished 3rd in a class of three cars much to the disappointment of Ronnie "B" Fellows who felt he could have done much better as the replacement (B) driver given only half the chance.

A good friend of mine, Dan Stott (Ronnie "B" Fellows), finally made it to Corner 2 and enjoyed his inaugural Mosport experience. He also is the newest member of the SAC at #233.

Ferrari-McLaren Spy Plot Thickens - Peter McMurtrie (S/\C#27)

Unfortunately, I think we could all see this coming:

The scheduled High Court session in the Ferrari and Mike Coughlan case was cancelled after the suspended McLaren designer agreed to supply an affidavit detailing his involvement in the affair.

Ferrari's lawyers had requested that Coughlan and his wife Trudy - who are accused of possessing nearly 800 pages of confidential Ferrari data - produce the sworn statement during the initial court meeting.

Coughlan's lawyers wanted clarification on any implications this might have on the related case in Italy involving ex-Ferrari employee Nigel Stepney.

Ferrari has named Stepney as the source of the documents received by Coughlan, who was suspended by McLaren last Tuesday when the data was discovered during a Ferrari-instigated search of his home.

It was later revealed that Stepney and Coughlan had made a joint approach to Robbie The Wrench in the hope of joining Phil Strudwick Racing's technical staff - which is exactly where they may end up.       (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Mr Ed Moody - hangin' out.

$5 fuel pump
So, yesterday I was going to meet up with Terry (not Terry Dalton), the guy who sold me a Volvo because he had a bunch of tires that were "forgotten" when he dropped the car off.  First, it's freaking hot.  I get on the 403 to the 401 going East, all is well until I hit the wall of traffic.  So I take the Eglington exit, and I'll take Royal York North.  I need to get on Weston between Sheppard and Finch.   As soon as I get onto Weston where Albion separates, the Police are there and the road is blocked.  I have to turn around and head back to Wilson and get over to Jane.  It's been about an hour now with no movement because Traffic is really sucking.  As I'm heading east, the in-line electric fuel pump I'm using takes a dump.  It overheated and keeps tripping out.  I manage to coast off into a parking lot, check under the hood.  I had a 1 Liter container of water, so I dump it on the fuel pump and wait until it's cool to the touch.  Car starts up, and I head out, get to Jane get north and make it to Terry's work.  Get the tires, and head out.  This time I decide to go north to Finch and then get on the 400, hopefully the airflow will cool off the pump.  As I get close to the ramp, I hit the gas and it bogs down (not enough fuel) so I stay on finch to Jane and I'll just snake it through Toronto.  Toronto SUCKS, it's hot and I'm moving at 1 kph due to traffic.  Back on Wilson heading west now and the pump gives up for good.  It warned me, but I kept pushing it.  I'm now stuck in a Speedy Parking lot.  There are a few repair shops, I walk around and ask if they have a 12 V fuel pump.  Nope, tomorrow they say.  Screw you guys, your not touching my POS, I'm going to get rid of it within days.  I don't want to be paying for repairs on it.  So I figure I'll just call the tow truck and get home.  After 30 min of waiting, it's hot out, I say screw this.  I pull out the Swiss army knife I have in the glove box.  Open the hood.  Cut the windshield washer squirter supply line and shove it in the fuel tank.  Siphon off .5L into my water container that I used to cool off the pump with.  I run the wiper fluid tank dry, out the side of the car.  Then connect the shortened squirter fluid line to the carburetor.  It takes me about 5 min to learn how to operate the wipers to keep the car running.  It works surprisingly well, and I end up flooding the engine more than running out of fuel.  So I bug out and head home, filling the carb bowl from the wipers every 5 or 7 min.  Get home, have a shower.
