"SHE’S A WOMAAAAN!! SHE’S A WOMAAAAN!!! SHE WILL BE INCUBATOR FOR CHILDREN FOREVER!!!! GO HOME, SUSIE, GO HOME!!" b

Mens about Susie Wolff.

(you are idiots!! ALL!!!!) 

(via oceansorry)

Hey! I’m a bloke and this is definitely not how I feel. Although I may be biased as I followed her last two seasons of DTM, I think that Susie’s presence at the test is great for the sport and I would love to see her do well. I hope she is the first of many and I wish her the best luck in the world.

Really?!

'born here in the US'

Well, let me just remind you, Don, of a small, inconvenient fact. 

The chassis used on the Delta Wing is from an old Aston Martin LMP1. Designed and built in Banbury. England.

The engine, whilst branded as Nissan, was designed and build by the RML group. England. 

The designer, Ben Bowlby, was born in England and moved to the US 9 years ago after working for Lola cars. England.

So, before you carry on exclaiming the wonders of this ‘all american’ car…just remember that.

Note: The people who made the Delta Wing, All American Racers, was founded as Anglo American Racers, using British engines on american built cars. Quite fitting, eh?
