    RS4 vs Range Rover SVR

    Enjoy!!! Apparently the 2019 SVR is quieter, but Scott, my Wholesale Manager friend, had an earlier model for a week. The thing would r-u-m-b-l-e throughout our house as he drove past on full noise to & from work. Headphones & full screen = Awesome!!!

    Alex Zanardi driver change

    MUST SEE!!! This is Alex Zanardi doing a driver change practice for Daytona 24 hours. Chaz Mostert is one of the co-drivers in this BMW factory entry. I think the team guy whose only Jobe is to assist with changing the steering wheel may be an extra crew member allowed by FIA as this...
