RUSH

If you are a car lover, especially a Formula One lover, you have to go and see this film.

Rush is a film about the infamous 1976 Formula One season. It chronicles the rivalry between legendary Formula One drivers, James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

This biographical film is different than most in it’s genre. It’s deep and beautifully written while still being action packed (obviously, a it’s a racing film). It has been praised by critics and is already receiving some heavy Oscar buzz.

Rush stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as James Hunt and Daniel Bruhl as Niki Lauda.

Written by Peter Morgan and directed by Ron Howard – Rush is a definite must for everyone, even the ladies!

It was released in September, so check your local cinema for listings. Believe me, you don’t want to miss this one!

Redbull & Renault Renew Parternship

Published by on Sep 12th, 2011, No Comments

Among all the automakers that have supplied engines to Formula One teams over the years, Renault is likely considered the most successful. While the French car manufacturer has seen world champion status with its own team in 2005 and 2006, a significant amount of its achievements have come from its success supplying independent teams.

Renault’s most powerful partnership to date has come from its collaboration with Red Bull Racing. The team is the current world champion in both the drivers’ and constructors’ categories and this is expected to continue with the recent renewed partnership agreement for five more years.

Renault Sport F1 will continue to supply Red Bull Racing with V8 engines and KERS Motor Generator Units for 2012 and 2013 and will then develop innovative technical solutions for the V6-based power unit that will be introduced from 2014.

Bernard Rey, President of Renault Sport F1, stated that “Red Bull Racing and Renault share the views that stability is a fundamental condition to perform at the top levels of competition. As well as being a unique opportunity to showcase the performance of the Renault engines at the highest possible level, it is also a fantastic arena to develop the technology and expertise within the Renault-Nissan Alliance.”
