Dyson Racing took full benefit of the fuel management issues for Muscle Milk Pickett Racing and won the ALMS ‘ P1 class. Chris Dyson, Guy Smith and Steven Kane held on to the lead with approximately 30 minutes to finish. Last year’s P1 team championship was Dyson Racing, while Dyson and Smith also claimed the driving championship.

Saturday’s victory was within one week of testing the new Lola-Mazda. The Muscle Milk’s crew was torn apart in their last hour about their fuel managment. Klaus Graf, Lucas Luhr and Simon Pagenaud seemed to be in the running for most of the 2nd half in their HPD ARX-03a prototype.

The two P1 winners continued on thru a race which started with 62 vehicles and had 51 cars running at the end. This race was more about patience and opportunity with definitely some luck.

With the absence of Peugeot from this seanons race at Sebring, Team Audi ruled the twelve hour endurnace event throughout the day. We would like to see the French return next year but Audi would rather view them from the rear view mirror.

With Car Leasing still relatively new within the UK, it is important that you understand what is involved, how it works and things to look out for when comparing prices and models.

The fundamental point of Car Leasing is that at no point will you ever own the car – you are in fact renting the car from a dealer, generally for a period of 3 years. The benefit of this is that you will not be affected by the decreasing residual value of the car, as suffered by many new car owners. The residual value does come into play when calculating your monthly payments. As certain makes and models hold their value better than others, it’s useful to know which manufacturers you should consider to get the best deal.

Lease an Audi

Most stockists will be able to lease you up-to-date models. First off there is the varied A3 range which blends an adventurous sense of judgement with outstanding design. The array of A4s comprises of the 4-door saloon, the spacious Avant, and the stylish and sporty Cabriolet. The recently launched A5 is also one to watch out for. If you are looking for something a little more snappy and sporty the TT Coupe and TT Roadster are renowned for their cool design and top notch performance.

BMW Leasing

There are a number of quality BMWs you should consider for a good car leasing deal. From the 1 series 5 door hatch to the 7 series 730d Sport, there’ll be something to suit every taste. 320i and 325i 2 door coupes are the pick of the 3 series whilst the 325i convertible and 335i 3.0 litre Touring also stand out. If fashion and comfort are your criteria try the 520d 4 and 5 door saloons from the 5 series, whilst the Z4 roadster is ideal for cruising in the summer.

Leasing a Mercedes

Whichever class you choose from, you cannot go wrong where a Mercedes is concerned. All tastes and budgets are covered starting with the A Class 5 door hatch and the CLS Class Couple. Up from this you should consider the sports tourer, Coupes and Estates from the B Class. Next up you could try the C Class saloons or for the traditional style and performance try the E Class. The top of the range sees the R Class and high spec SLK Roadster – with Mercedes you really are spoilt for choice.

Lease a Volkswagen

The large selection from VW cars includes the old favourites Polo, Beetle and lesser known Caravelle – all offer excellent driving experiences and top notch refinement. Did you know the Golf hatch is now available as an estate? Onto the larger cars and you can’t go wrong with a Passat or Jetta and for the larger families there are the 7 seater Touran and Sharan. Finally, for a fine example of VW build quality, you cannot go wrong with the EOS.

I was standing on a busy street corner on a Sunny Sunday morning. There was a cool breeze in he air and the warm sunlight was reflecting off the hood of my Nissan. The dry dead leaves of fall swarm about in a miniature storm all around as you search your trunk for the jumper cables.

“Beep-beep” you hear as the Kia lights in front of you flash and the doors unlock. Glancing over the top of your trunk lid you notice the sexiest dirty blonde you have ever seen about to enter her car. She feigns a smile in your direction as she as you “Do you need some help?” Working up a faint smile yourself you softly stutter as a Lexus buzzes by, “no, no thanks, I got this” Well ok, if you are sure, have a good one.” She states as she jumps in her ride, waits for a passing Lincoln and Jeep and speeds off into the distance leaving your hopes dashed and your butt still stranded.

The side of a busy street is the last place you want to spend your afternoon, especially when you have already had a long day changing tires at the tire shop. As you contemplate your future with the hot gal that just left you stranded, you hear a couple cars revving their engines at the light. A Honda and an Audi side by side with sleek 18-inch rims and low profile sporty tires about to tear up the street. The light turns green and both cars fish tail past a Toyota as the speed of down the street.

As your frustration builds you whip out your phone to phone a friend. Thank the lord I have a cell phone. As you hit the call button the screen fades to black. “Dead battery, really?” you think to yourself. Your anger builds as a clean-cut businessman pulls up in his BMW and rushes past you and disappears quickly into the office building. He doesn’t even hear you as you call out to him.

You lean against the right side of your car and watch the traffic go by. You see swarms of SUVs, a Lexus, the odd Lamborghini, Ferrari and Chevrolet, followed by the sight of a bright orange Lotus sporting gold plated rims and quality tires with barely worn out tread depth. You jealously shake your fist and continue to pout.

Out of the blue a Bright blue Ford cruises by and honks the horn. You glance up as you notice the gal from before busting a U-turn. “Still stranded?” she says as she screeches to a stop beside you. I was just grabbing the kids from school in my husband’s car and noticed your sad face. You thanks her for her kindness and jump the car. “So much for that” you think as your car starts and she drives away into the distance.

Should Dustin Renteria hit the big time in motocross racing in the future, he’ll have Level 5 Motorsports’ Scott Tucker, for one, to thank for it.

A three-time national sports car racing champion, Tucker and Level 5 Motorsports have given the nine-year-old Renteria’s young racing career a huge boost over the past two seasons. Through the help of Tucker and Level 5, Renteria has been provided with financial and marketing assistance, which has allowed him to burst onto the national scene as one of the top up-and-coming young motocross riders.

Renteria, of Hollister, California, is only part of a program Level 5 Motorsports implemented in 2010 that provides assistance for talented, enthusiastic young people who are interested in pursuing a career in motorsports.

Renteria, of Hollister, California, is only part of a program Level 5 Motorsports implemented in 2010 that provides assistance for talented, enthusiastic young people who are interested in pursuing a career in motorsports.

Renteria, who turned nine in May, began his motocross career in 2008 at age six and has been winning races and competing for titles since then. He has collected numerous podium finishes and multiple championships while participating at venues around the western United States. He rides a 2010 Cobra King.

“Scott continues to help us with the best possible equipment to race with, be it suspension-wise or motor-wise,” said Renteria’s father, Dusty. “Scott and Level 5 have been a tremendous blessing for our family. He has helped us in so many aspects of Dustin’s racing program. We’re grateful for all he has done for us.”

Dustin Renteria has raced in several different classes in 2011, and had posted 40 victories through September 11. He primarily races in his home state of California, but has begun to attract national attention with his results.

“The caliber of racers on the West Coast, even at this young age, is tremendous,” Dusty Renteria said. “With a lot of these kids, their parents don’t work and are involved with their racing careers full time. That’s why we’re so glad to have someone like Scott involved with Dusty. If it weren’t for him, I know Dustin wouldn’t be nearly as far along as he is.”

In today’s economic condition there are quite a few people that are having a hard time in trying to keep their cars running in top condition.

The savings that one can enjoy can be as high as eighty percent on down to twenty percent.

Sometimes there is a wider selection available to an individual when they choose to look for a part, or parts, that are used. This is most especially true when one is trying to find something that is required by an older vehicle. When one finds what they are looking for then they may discover that the item is better than a new one in the sense of fit, functionality, and its quality.

Actually finding a store to deal with may be just a matter of going to a search engine an running the appropriate search or turning to the right page in the phone book. Finding the part that actually matches up with the car that is ill will of course depend much on the type of car that it is.

Many of the stores, in the physical world or online, offer warranties in the event that something goes wrong with what they have sold to their customers. It is important to remember though that all of the warranties of these various outlets are not all the same. Thus it is important to make oneself aware of the terms and conditions stated within them.

There are a few pieces of information that one needs to have on hand when they go looking for the particular part that they need. This includes the make, model, VIN (vehicle identification number), and what one needs to replace. Thus enabling the sales staff to help an individual to quickly get the item that they require.

One other thing that should be of interest to a buyer is how much use the part has seen. Thus one should inquire if it has been re-manufactured, rebuilt, or is just sold as is.

A further advantage to buying used actually goes to the environment. Pollution of many kinds, such as that to the water, is reduced. The generation of solid waste products that often go hand in hand with the manufacturing of new products will also be reduced because of this type of recycling. Landfills will then not fill up as fast and the drain on natural resources will be lessened as well.

The purchase of used auto parts is quite beneficial in many ways. The environment is helped, allow a person to get a part that may be otherwise hard to get, and is easy on the pocketbook.
