Ladies And Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!

It's been a long offseason to say the least.  Once F1 went dark on the 2010 season, there's been little of note to come out of the world of autosports.  However, this weekend is the unofficial start of the 2011 racing season, and none too soon.

Consider: Friday will see the first rollout of a F1 car, Ferrari's F50.  Saturday brings the start of my second-favorite car race, the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (the 24 Hours of LeMans is my favorite), followed by the ending of the race on Sunday. 

Then we get four separate rollouts on Tuesday, February 1st: Williams, Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Mercedes, as pre-season testing gets underway for the F1 circus.  Finally, on Friday the 7th McLaren brings the MP4-26 to light in Berlin, topping off a busy, busy week!

As you can imagine, there'll be a whole slew of F1 Pr0n entries.  And speaking of F1 Pr0n, watch this:

If that doesn't get your engine racing, nothing will.

1 Some nice shots there, I just wish modern film editors could get over the concept of limiting shots to a fraction of a second. The few bits of the movie where it follows a shot for a couple of seconds are far more pleasant than just a fractional flash of something. Have you seen this one? Two clips from the same spot at Spa, on the left is a club day with a mix of 'fast' cars, on the right is the 2009 F1 race. Really drives home just how fast F1 really is.

2 Yah, I had seen that, and a version that does the same thing, but with an overlay.  Never fails to amuse...
