Polska! Robert Kubica Reppin Hard in F1

If this happened in the age of Hunt & Lauda, he’d be DEAD

Long time fans of F1 will remember the absolutely horrific crash in 2007 at the Canadian Grand Prix. Kubica bounced around the circuit pretty much like a pinball, his BMW Sauber disintegrating before our eyes. Amazingly enough, he walked away relatively unscathed by the whole thing. Guess he couldn’t be bothered by it. Hell, he came back to the same circuit a year later and won the race.

Luck (or lack thereof) bit Kubica hard the next time around, doing some serious damage this time around

Then in February 2011, Kubica suffered a huge accident at a rally event in Italy. It did some serious damage to his right arm and no one thought at that point if he would ever race – let alone drive – ever again.

But this guy is about as indestructible as any superhero, as he is set to start a Formula 1 race yet again in the seat of a Williams. And while doing 70% of the driving with his left hand.

If THAT isn’t repping yourself and your countrymen hard, then I have no clue what it’d be. Mistrz Kubica is.

Detours of the Week – January 8th, 2010

From BBC – Robert Kubica signs with Renault to race in Formula One Racing for 2010. Kubica originally raced for BMW Sauber since 2006, and has had only one victory (2008 Canadian Grand Prix). It will be interesting to see how well Kubica will race next year against top competitors Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonzo, and Michael Shumacher.


From Cobra.com – Cobra just announced the launch of their new full color touch screen radar detector. The touch screen provides a graphic interface that makes it easier to set up the radar detector. Does touch screen really make radar detetors that easy to set up? Most radar detectors that I’ve seen only have one button. The touch screen radar detector is Cobra’s first radar detector that costs under $200.


From OCRegister.com – On January 15th and 16th, Orange County Race-Craft, a high perofmrance driving school, will allow supercar owners to learn how to learn the capabilities and limitations of their vehicles. This event came about after the many supercar accidents that have been occuring in Orange County over the past year. Owners can sign up at ocracecraft.com.
