Lewis Hamilton creates history for a race team name from NZ!

Motorsports history is created on the Interlagos circuit with seconds to spare. The Formula One 2008 final race started with Lewis Hamilton standing in good chance to deliver the race into the hands of the McLaren Race Team….a race team whose name hails from New Zealand race hero Bruce McLaren and whose pioneering legacy and achievements have given rise to the youngest F1 champion in its history. Check out the link to a fascinating history where the dream was established.

Here is a worthy video tribute to the driver from Auckland/NZ, Bruce McLaren who went onto be the vision that established the McLaren Motorsports Team.

New Zealand can now lay claim to what is a world first in Motorsports at the highest level of the sport. In the same year New Zealand (and Auckland precisely) and can lay claim to being the birth place of motorsports legends. Bruce McLaren who went onto establishing the McLaren Race Team currently owned by TAG and whose Lewis Hamilton won the F1 2008 series today and Scott Dixon the reigning Indy 500 Championship. I don’t know what it is whether, their mother’s spiked their infant baby bottles with petrol or their Dad’s used their nappies as oil rags in the garage, but what ever it was, the legacy of these kiwi drivers have converged two points in history that might never occur again…. but you never know, us Kiwi’s never accept never!
However prior to the last seconds of the race, Hamilton was in 6th place and seconds before the finish managed to squeeze into 5th place on the last corner…talk about a close shave. He had to get a 5th placing or better to win the 2008 series.

Here is a unique on board view of the track where history might just be made. Interlagos is one of the tracks you race race in the SimDeck simulators.

Whilst you wont be winning that sort of money in the SimDeck race car simulator, you will get to experience an aspect of skill and controlled that is required for racing at such enormous speeds.

A Short Video History of Lewis Hamilton’s current race history.

Want to meet the next F1 Champion? – He is only 5 yrs old.

Lenardo Panayiotou in the UK is the ultimate coolest boy racer in my opinion. Whether he is on the race track or playing with his car toys on the kitchen floor Lenardo has got the right stuff.

He races at over 50kph in an actual race cart and is only 5 years old. What happened to playing in the sandpit or with the tennis ball! Young Lenardo is a champion in the making.

He races at over 50kph in an actual race cart and is only 5 years old. What happened to playing in the sandpit or with the tennis ball! Young Lenardo is a champion in the making.

The wanna be racers who terrorise every major city with their dangerous racing, burnouts at intersections have nothing against this boy racer. I reckon they should sit up, bury their egos and take notice of this child and F1 Champion in the making.

Lenardo is a five-year-old go cart racer is on the road to becoming the next Lewis Hamilton after securing a sponsorship deal. He firsted started racing at the ripe age of 4 years and uncannyingly has started his race career on the same track that Lewis Hamilton first made his name as a novice cart racer in his younger days..now that is spooky, fate or what a great omen as you start your career! Already Leonardo Panayiotou, is already beating kids three times his age on the track.

The youngsters could be on the fast-track to success after his go-karting skills were spotted by a consortium of sponsors at the Rye House Kart Raceway in Hertfordshire.

Leonardo races a 60cc model at speeds of more than 50mph.

That’s fast enough to qualify for competitive racing – but the youngster will have to wait another four years until he is old to take his test and qualify for a MSA karting racing licence.
