Ooh, these things and their Capri cousins are just so wonderfully gnarly!

Data from Motor.Rocabal:

Another attractive image of the Ford Escort RS Broadspeed (1,840 cc) of the Spanish team consisting of Rafael Barrios and Emilio Rodríguez Zapico but this time during the 4 Hours of Zandvoort (Holland), a valid test for the Euro-touring cars. They would qualify in the 12th of the General (6th in the 2 Liter Division) of the Spanish team constituted by Rafael Barrios and Emilio Rodríguez Zapico but this time during the 4 Hours of Zandvoort (Holland), valid test for the Euro-tourism. They would qualify in the 12th of the General (6th in the 2 Liter Division), harassed in the ranks by the Escort RS 2.0 Zakspeed, the BMW 2002 Köepchen or the Alfa Romeo GTAm 2.0 evolved to the maximum.

“Tires? We don’ need no stinking tires!”

In Rallye, you press on… regardless. As long as the car can move, you make it move.

ms630brm

Oh, I do so love Matra sports cars… they are so beautiful. This is an MS630 BRM.

Matra-Simca MS630 was a Group 5 prototype race car introduced in 1967 for the World Championship for Makes. The MS630 replaced the previous Matra MS620.[2] The car was initially designated as the Matra MS630, but when Simca sponsored Matra in 1969, it was renamed as the Matra-Simca MS630.

For 1967, Equipe Matra Sports decided to use a 1.9-litre version of the BRM Formula One V8 engine. (capable of producing 245 hp (183 kW; 248 PS) at 9,000 RPM.) Matra planned to have Johnny Servoz-Gavin/Jean-Pierre Jaussaud to drive the MS630 at both the 1967 1000 km of Spa and 1967 1000km of Nürburgring but the entries for both races were withdrawn. The MS630 only made one appearance in 1967, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Matra entered two cars for Servoz-Gavin/Jean-Pierre Beltoise and Jaussaud/Henri Pescarolo. Servoz-Gavin/Beltoise retired with a broken oil pipe and Jaussaud/Pescarolo also retired with broken suspension.

I think that Markko Märtin’s jump from Ouninpohja 2003, Yellow House jump, is the longest measured one from modern days. 57 metres at 173 km/h if I recall right. That Guy Wilks’ flight is from SS Leustu, jump best known for Novikov’s stunt in 2009. Last year they had metre marks up to 55 metres there and they roughly landed at 45-50 metres. Wilks’ jumps must’ve been around 55 metres at least. I think we would have some nice lengths from SS Himos “Nikara’s jump” as well. Only Ouninpohja’s jump is ran to direction measured here this year.

From the 1970s this jump by Juhani Kynsilehto in 1975 is rather big one. Legend says it landed around 70 metres, but that’s not accurate of course. Co-driver was, by the way, one Martin Holmes.

Sweet! Finland is most definitely Rally Central… it’s in their blood!

 

 

maya beehive

Archaeologists in the ancient city of Nakum in northeastern Guatemala recently made a big discovery. Beneath a vast ritual platform dating from around 100 BCE to 300 CE they discovered a foot-long, barrel-shaped ceramic tube with covers at each end.

It is nearly identical to wooden beehives still made from hollow logs by Maya living in the region today. Their discovery is the only known Maya beehive. Since most beehives would probably have been wooden, they probably would not have survived.

God, the Maya are far from ancient! Mainstream archaeology has no clue whatsoever.

Sigh.

I will never forget the time met him. Anniston Alabama..he pulled up in a 1981 El Camino – got out and had that long black jacket that had Embroidering: BLUES INC. 20 minutes later we all were recording he was 10 feet from me… and if you don’t that I was intimidated, you are a dam liar. As I stated, I will never forget him – tremendous individual.

Just spectacular. The beauty knows no bounds.

 

 

Within and Without

Here’s the first poster for the newest film from my dear friend Frank S Petrilli!

It’s called Within and Without.

The tag line… “After death, life flows on.”

How Fortean is that?

And, if Frank is involved, it’s gonna kick ass!

I hope I get to see it soon.
