Horse racing sucks. I hate it, I don’t see the point, and I think everyone connected with it is a stuck up snob. There - I said it. Not one to mince words, yeah, I know…
So I got forwarded this review bby a friend of mine who, as it happens, is well into horse racing! Does he fitt with my above description? Well, let’s just say there is an exception to every rule. How’s that for diplomacy then?
So anyway [yawn] here’s the preview you sent me Rob, as promised. Hope you’re happy now that you get to see your work on the internet. Exciting isn’t it?
Since it’s my blog, I’m also following this up with a rock music video - because I can!
The Cheltenham Festival is an annual horse racing event held in the UK which showcases the very best horses in jumps racing. This year’s 2012 Cheltenham festival, which will be held between Tuesday 13th March and Friday 16th March, promises to be no exception.
The first day will start at 1.30 GMT with the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle race. An action packed first day will also feature the Champion Hurdle, seen by many as the most important hurdle race of the year. The 2011 winner, Hurricane Fly, is expected to be running again to defend his title. However, as usual he will face stiff competition from several other fine horses who have been bred and trained specifically to win this prestigious event.
Wednesday is dubbed Ladies’ Day and gives the crowd some extra entertainment in the form of the ever popular Ladies Day fashion awards. The racing is sure to be just as entertaining, with the Queen Mother Champion Chase the highlight of the day.
The final day of the festival features the Cheltenham Gold Cup, which many see as the highlight of the event and perhaps of the entire horse racing calendar. The 2011 Gold Cup winner was Long Run, which was trainer Nicky Henderson’s first even winner in the big race. Again, Long Run will be back to defend his crown, but few will be predicting a repeat of last year’s triumph with a hugely competitive field all vying for the title, including the majestic Imperial Commander.
So there’s plenty to look forward to at this year’s Cheltenham Festival. Racing fans can stay up to date with the latest Cheltenham free bets and bonuses which will be available online, on television and via the racing press.
A bit more on the 911 now, and here’s a video of the guys at Top Gear with their full review of this beast of a sports car.
As a petrol head, one of my big things in life is that I’ve always wanted to own - not just drive for a day, but OWN - a top of the range sports car. Now there are some real beatuies on the market as you might know, but the best of the best for me is the Porshce 911 Turbo. Beautiful.
Although the Porsche 911 Turbo is an extremely beautiful and powerful sports car, it is worthwhile getting if you have a lot of money to spare. You are going to invest $132,00 for the Turbo coupe and $143,000 for the Cabrio. You’re going to get uncompromising extravagance for the amount of money you pay for this car. The Turbo comes with very comfortable all-leather seats that is better than any sports car.
Porsche’s indicator panels happen to be considered legendary and the car is packed with many modern comforts and conveniences. The preciseness in everything can make something straightforward as getting in and out an effortless endeavor. Helping to make seat and steering wheel manipulations are also amazingly easy to do. It is shocking that many don’t even think much of the Porsche Turbo. Even though it may bring awe to some drivers, most people do not even pay attention.
You’ll be able to go to total race mode and have an exciting drive by simply pressing the sport plus button. The engine running at 7000 rpm is plenty good but probably a lot more than what most people can handle.
Many have no clue that the Porsche 911 Turbo is probably the most powerful sports car that you can legally drive. This amazing vehicle has a powerful 500 horsepower 3.8-liter twin turbo engine and weighs a tad over 3,500 making it the fastest all-wheel drive Porsche has ever produced. This amazing vehicle should go from 0-60 in only 3.2 seconds and reach speeds up to 194 mph making it as good as the more expensive cars by Ferrari or Lamborghini. Typically the Porsche 911 Turbo not only is able to achieve awesome speed and acceleration but it are able to do cornering like no other. The cornering is viewed as neutral in this rear engine car.
It happens to be so excellent that many will not realize the engine is in the rear. There is a sturdy feel with the steering even though it is an all-wheel drive. The brakes behave with accurate precision, as they are easily modulated. As accurate as the transmission can be, you will be better served by leaving it in automatic mode, instead of shifting yourself.
The Porsche 911 Turbo is one of those styles of cars which has been designed for an elite segment of the population. It is actually more potent than most people can handle, but most people don’t need to be concerned with that, because they will never be able to afford it. It is a component of a world that most will not ever know, but it might be fun to take for a test drive, and see what it is like to be one of the elite.
One day, my friends, I promise you this. One day, it will be mine!
OK this isn’t some teen angst thing, and yes I did steal the title from a lyric from Green Day’s excellent Jesus of Suburbia. In my case, what I’m saying is that I am going to be blogging about the things that interest ME. Because it’s my blog, you see, and I can.
If they interest you then great, happy to have you along for the ride. If they don’t then, no hard feelings. But don’t piss and moan at me, just movve on and read something else. The web is, after all, a big place.
Deal? Great. Let’s get cooking then…
And I’ll start with Jesus Of Suburbia itself, while we’re on that theme! Enjoy it.
