Benjamin Breny could be the first Dominican to drive in Formula 1

Benjamin Breny is a 21 years old Dominican raised in Belgium with a clear goal in his mind, get to Formula 1. Modern Formula 1 more than ever requires that the drivers not only have talent, it also requires from the driver a financial support so that the team could have better financial foundation to confront the high costs of running a complete season in Formula 1. This attempt by a Dominican is not the first one but at least is a serious one. Porfirio Rubirosa a Dominican Playboy raced in formula 1, just a single race and don’t even finished it.

Benjamin seems to be a decent driver with good chances of getting to the maximum category if he gets the financial support needed.

In this video Benjamin is doing a lap of the famous circuit Spa Francorchamps located in Belgium where he was raised.

Formula One in Dominican Republic

It has been more than two year now that I got the chance to view a formula one car in action. Thanks to Red Bull promotions through out the world and local car dealer Peynado GA we had the opportunity to saw Jaime Alguersauari riding a Red Bull Formula 1 car at the popular known Malecon. It was an amazing day I can recall, although we had a hard time getting to our viewing spot due to the large crowd that gathered there to see the show.

However those 10 to 15 minutes of hearing the noise of an engine going 18,000 rpm and the smell of the rubber paid off the hard time we had that day. Formula One is the top category in racing and in these videos you will see why it drags so many spectators worldwide year after year.

Here is a short video of a carro publico (public transportation in dominican republic) vs a formula 1 car. It is very funny considering how the carro publico took advange and did a u turn instead of going all the way like the f1 did. This type of audacy is the one these drivers show day after day in the street of Santo Domingo.

Here is another short video of Juan Pablo Montoya driving the f1 BMW car in the street of london.

To ended up a video of Formula One car in the beach, specifically at Juanillo Beach Cap Cana Dominican Republic.

Did Porfirio Rubirosa took part in a F1 race?

The answer is yes. And for those of you who did not know, he was

First dominican to race in Formula 1

a Dominican character known worldwide as a playboy. He made his mark as an international playboy, for his jet setting lifestyle, and his legendary prowess with women. Among his spouses were two of the richest women in the world.By this last fact you can tell he knew what it took to have that luxury life that he had. Racing in formula had never been cheap.

Formula one in Dominican Republic have rise in number of espectators in the last 6 years and I am prettry sure that most of them don’t know that we already had one Dominican racing in that category. To conclude Porfirio never finished that race and never competed again in the category so this may be a reason for not consider him as a serious F1 driver, also because in those years more than ever you entered the races based on your financial status and not for your talent.

Formula 1 car sound

The car-man relation have always been a true love story. Ever since the

formula1 sound
Ears can even get hurt if aren't properly covered.

automobile was born man have been crazy about all type of cars. There are muscle cars, precision cars, luxury cars, classic cars,tiny cars, ecological cars, technological cars etc etc. All of them have their respective share on the market preference. Cars represent the true feeling of liberty by allowing us to traveled far distances as long as there is a road and gas.

But now I will like to talk about an special love I have for certain type of car. The first time I watched anF1 car driven in a long straight and then braking just at the very end of the corner to bounce back to 250-300 km/h in 6 to 10 second I was instantly captivated by the speed, and most of all, the sound

Felipe needs to look for another seat in 2013
Felipe may have to leave the team next year

Much have been said about the 2013 season and the Ferrari team. Right now I think any formula one driver, fan and even detractor of the sport knows that despite all the nice things Ferrari have said about how they care and trust Felipe Masa and how confident they are that he will be up to form once again, Felipe Masa will have to look for another seat for next year’s championship. Of course neither the team and obviously the driver haven’t said anything about this until negotiations are at least 80% done. Now this brings us to the big question who is that driver that will take his place? is it a current formula 1 driver? is he a gp2 driver? is he a nascar driver? nahh just kidding.

The question is yet to be answered, Read more

Ayrton Senna

Ayrton Senna was the most dominant driver of his era, basing his success on the strong ability he had to dominate whatever car he drove. Here is an small Ayrton Senna biography so you could get to know him better.

Senna’s father business success allows him to race since he was very young. Hi did his firstrace when he was just 8 years old, the pole was decided by picking up a piece of paper

from a helmet with the numbers in it, he was the first to pick and picked number one, so he got the pole position for his first go kart race held in brazil.

His father supported him from the very beginning and hired the services of Lucio Pascual Gascon to help improve the young talent. Immediately Lucio spot Senna’s potential because of the passion he puts into each race to be the first one. Senna entered each race with the mode that he was to be the first or nothing he was a truly perfectionists and he brought that to formula one as well.

He moved to Europe 1981 to pursue his plans to be a Formula One Driver. Immediately he started establishing himself as a competitive driver winning the Townsend-Thoreson Formula Ford 1600 Championships with the Van Diemen team. In 1982 he won the British and European Formula Ford 2000 championships and in 1983 he won the British Formula Three Championship with West Surrey Racing.

As it used to be, talented and mediocre drivers always started their careers on small F1 teams and Senna was not the exception.
