    I'm not sure if anyone here likes F1, but Bridgestone setup a local show with a Ferrari F2003!!!! I got so much closer to the cars than the display cars at US GP last year.

    I tried to convince the lady to let me sit in the car, but that didn't happen Sad She did let me in to take a few pictures with my hand in the cockpit.

    I'm a happy man today !! Very Happy Very Happy

    This has absolutely nothing to do with bikes.

    That is one serious racing machine. That thing has unbelievable amounts of carbon. I haev actually sat in one of those. Not that exact one of course but one just like it, only the one I sat in was black and white and had a different sponser.

    Wow....I love F1 cars (Jet planes on the ground)

    I like the shot of the Ferrari from the rear where you get to see the exhaust angle up towards the diffuser--> supposedly increased downforce a bit.

    Look at all the Carbon fiber.

    I think Ferrari started doing exhaust designs like that in 2001, and soon all the other team followed suit

    Don't forget the weakest link on that F2003-GA was the bridgestones. That LED cluster in the back is FREAKIN bright.

    It is meant to be very bright. So when its foggy or somethin' during a raceyou can see it. You don't want two F1 rockets smashing into each other at 200 MPH! They would crumple up like paper and explode.
