Tony Stewart, Lewis Hamilton Swap Race Cars at Watkins Glen [Video]

Replicating a stunt from back in 2003 when Juan Pablo Montoya and Jeff Gordon swapped race cars at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, earlier this week F1 pilot Lewis Hamilton and NASCAR racer Tony Stewart made the switch.

Organized by Mobil 1 (which sponsors both racers), the event took place at Watkins Glen, the site of the first Formula 1 race in America. It’s also one of very few tracks to have ever hosted both an F1 and a NASCAR race.

Little more than a marketing stunt, it’s fun to watch and see how the two driver’s compare. Plus, we all know Montoya couldn’t resist the lure of NASCAR. Hamilton… you next?

Fan Hit During Red Bull F1 Exhibition in Japan [Video]

Stupidity knows no bounds. Need an example? Try running out in front of a moving Formula 1 race car… you know, those highest of high-tech race machines capable of hitting 60 mph in under two seconds and speed of well over 200 mph.

That’s exactly what one crazed fan did at a recent Red Bull exhibition in Japan. The F1 car was being driven by Sebastien Buemi and lucky for the sprinting idiot with a vertical leap much lower than he had hoped, Buemi wasn’t going very quickly.

From the video it’s obvious that he managed to walk away from the incident although we’re pretty sure the authorities will be having more than just a few words with him.
