While we took some time off in the Costa del Sol, TGT was invited to the most exclusive private racing track in Europe – the Ascari Race Resort. There we spent a day with up-and-coming Spanish race car sensation Alvaro Fontes to familiarize ourselves with a behemoth track made up of the racing world’s celebrated twists and turns. We would then experience the track first hand, behind the wheel of the fastest car to ever round the track Nurburgring Nordschleife. For more on the octane infused day, head on over to UrbanDaddy’s DRIVEN.
When the legendary Argentine motorhead was asked how he won 5 Formula One races, he calmly replied “Very Easy. Accelerate more. Break less”.
Smell like fuel, Have the grit and take the Carraciola Karrusell like Fangio. Accelerate more, break less.
Juan Manuel Fangio, F1 1954-1957 Champion
It was Richard Costello’s wish to have his son rebuild his once lustrous BMW R50. Born in 1958, it rolled out of the factory confines of the Bayerische Motoren Werke plant in Munich and would have a history that spanned 53 years. His son Bill Costello put together this video of its restoration and perfectly sums up this great machines life and its impact on the family which treasured it.
Well done Mr. Costello, Ride on.
