Team bosses assert: F1 needs to go where money is.

Team bosses assert: F1 needs to go where money is.

Fri 04 Apr, 01:35 PM

Middle East increasingly important to the sport, teams acknowledge - but we need to retain winter break.

Team bosses have come out in support of Ron Dennis' vision for a 20-race Formula 1 calendar with an increased focus on the Middle East - but they are adamant that figure must be an absolute limit.

Speaking to delegates during the Motor Sport Business Forum in Bahrain ahead of Sunday's grand prix in the desert kingdom - the first time the forum has taken place away from its traditional Monaco home - the McLaren-Mercedes team principal called for the sport to move in an evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, direction in the years to come. He was also enthusiastic about F1's recent expansion into the Middle East, with the inaugural race in Sakhir back in 2004 and Abu Dhabi set to follow suit next year.

"I welcome this expansion," the 60-year-old underlined, "and heartily commend Bernie Ecclestone for spearheading it, but I have two provisos. Firstly, that the season never expands to more than 20 grands prix, which I regard as a natural logistical limit; secondly, that we preserve a close-season over the winter.

"The close-season is essential not only for logistical reasons, but also in order to stir up a sense of anticipation in the hearts and minds of F1 fans. My firm belief is that the season should expand to not more than 20 grands prix.

"F1 must remain the pinnacle of motorsport, from an engineering point-of-view as well as from every other point-of-view. The day when F1 stakeholders - and I include F1 fans in that categorisation - begin to doubt F1's status as the pinnacle of motorsport, we are lost.

"We need to make F1 less expensive, too, and we need to do that very carefully. In order for F1 to continue to thrive in the way it has thrived over the past half century, we must foster an environment wherein entrepreneurship can continue to flourish freely. Entrepreneurship remains essential to the future development of F1.

"I passionately believe that the most glorious chapters of Formula 1 are yet to come, as long as we maintain systems which encourage competitive racing via regulatory stability, and foster entrepreneurial achievement yet reflect the world's changing environment in its priorities. Then the future of Formula 1 can be every bit as glorious as we want it to be."

More races will necessarily cut down on testing time, meaning there will be less scope for teams to develop new technologies. That in turn will logically reduce the sport's spiralling costs - something a large majority within the paddock are adamant is imperative - and by the same token potentially improve the racing spectacle.

"If we can frame those rules in such a way as to keep costs in check, or even reduce costs, so much the better," Dennis is quoted as having told the forum by Fox Sports. "Every time the rules are changed, the result is almost always a cost increase and, because the smaller teams are perhaps less able to meet those cost increases, they may not respond as effectively to a rule change as their more affluent competitors.

"We must change the rules because the world is changing, but because we also need regulatory stability, our rule changes must be evolutionary, not revolutionary."

There are 18 grands prix on the 2008 F1 calendar - one more than last year - with the Valencia street outing and Singapore night-time race the two new additions, and the US Grand Prix disappearing from the schedule. The sport's commercial supremo Ecclestone has frequently expressed his desire to see more racing and less testing.

Aside from Abu Dhabi's entrance onto the scene in 2009, South Korea and India are set to join the circus in 2010, with Russia, Dubai and Qatar amongst others all offering mega bucks for the prestige of hosting a grand prix and firmly on the 77-year-old's radar for the years to come. The record stands at 19 races in 2005, though the suggestions are 20 races could become a feature of the calendar as early as next year.

"I think 20 races is a big number but a sensible number," affirmed Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner. "It's a huge logistical challenge, but the way the teams are working with each other to self-regulate testing, it is possible. For us, the Middle East region is key to our development plan, and it is very important that it has a strong presence on the calendar."

"Twenty is about the right number," agreed Honda CEO Nick Fry. "The balance of traditional circuits in Europe and circuits in new continents is vital. Formula 1 needs to go where the commercial market is, and that market is moving from Europe and North America to the Middle East and Asia."

"We should have 20 races but not more," added Force India MD Colin Kolles. "The future is definitely the Middle East region. There is a lot of investment coming out of this region, and that is what is needed in Formula 1."

Earlier in the week, Prodrive chairman and former Benetton and BAR-Honda boss David Richards underlined his conviction in the importance of the Middle East to F1's future [see separate story - click here].

300 tonnes of racing gear reaches Bahrain

MORE THAN 20,000 individual items of specialist racing equipment for teams have been brought in for the F1 event. The items, weighing more than 300 tonnes in total, have been transported by DHL, the official logistics partner for Formula One, to every Grand Prix race.

DHL is responsible for all of the freight movements for the Formula One teams, including the transportation of the racing cars, as well as engines, tyres, spare parts and fuel, in addition to all of the equipment used in the pits, Paddock Club and telecast.

"There are 18 races in 17 countries and we have to move all the team needs for the team races," Middle East commercial director David Wild told the GDN.

"We pack up car parts, camera material and so on and so forth.

"For each Grand Prix, we use 25 to 30 freight aircraft~."

Thirty-five staff members are involved in the planning and transportation of the items, but in total more than 300,000 are involved in the global logistical operation.

On the race day, eight to 15 people alone will work on the track to ensure that the teams get the items they need.

"The team is almost like a Formula One team themselves, it's one of the most demanding logistical challenges, because the race can't start late," said Mr Wild.

"They work all year - during the race season and with race teams planning for next year's programme.

"Since BIC is a fantastic facility and so well-managed and the whole of Bahrain support F1, and it's an extremely well run Grand Prix, things are made easy for us."

For DHL, the F1 preparations started in January and continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Throughout the racing season, the 300 tonnes of equipment and material move across six continents and between 18 cities by land, sea and air, to a tightly controlled timetable, to ensure that there is no disruption to the event's calendar.

On average, 20,000 individual items - the smallest being a 1.5mm screw and the largest the car engine itself - are transported for each Formula One race.

DHL also maintains a mobile logistics unit at each racetrack, with an Extra Services Team standing by to meet all of the special requirements and requests for last minute deliveries, from teams, organises and sponsors.

Deliveries to and from the track can be made within 24 hours by express flight, with an on-board courier accompanying packages on some occasions, to expedite customs clearance.

Onward transportation may then also take place by helicopter, to deliver the shipment directly to the circuit.

The 2008 Formula 1 season began on March 16 with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne and will end in Sao Paulo, Brazil in November, with the crowning of a new world champion.

The Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix is the third in a series of 18 races that keep DHL's specialist teams busy throughout the season.

BIC chief executive officer Martin Whitaker said freight for the Grand Prix began arriving in Manama two weeks ago, with the cars and team personnel arriving a week or so before. "There are many hundreds of tons of freight and the majority is flown into the Bahrain International Airport on freighters," said Mr Whitaker.

"This is a seamless and highly organised operation; one that is conducted all over the world."

Class 1-2/1600 racers Cory Boyer and Adam Pfankuch tied For 2008 SCORE Desert Series Overall point lead after 2 races

Richardson, Dean are top two in unlimited Class 1 points;
Start Drawing for 40th Tecate SCORE Baja 500 on April 19

LOS ANGELES—Literally taking it one race at a time, California young gun desert racers Cory Boyer and Adam Pfankuch find themselves locked in a tie for the Overall and Class 1-2/1600 point standings after two rounds of the five-race 2008 SCORE Desert Series. After Boyer, of Bakersfield, won the season-opener in Laughlin, Nev., with Pfankuch, of Carlsbad, placing third, the pair flopped podium positions in San Felipe, Mexico to stand tied with 129 points each.
Round 3 of the 2008 SCORE Desert Series will be the 40th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500, to be held May 29-June 1, in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. The computerized drawing, by class, for the race, will be held Saturday, April 19 at the SCORE International headquarters in Los Angeles.
Boyer, 23, is a second-generation desert racer who along with his father Rick and brothers Greg and Chris, have spent much of their lives in the desert. Boyer, who works for Asbury Transportation in Bakersfield, their family-owned trucking business, was planning on running select SCORE races this year and decided just three days before Laughlin to go ahead and race and go from there. The result was he brought the Boyer Racing 1600cc Volkswagen-powered Lothringer open wheel desert race car to the checkered flag in first place in the two-day 14th SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge.
Pfankuch, 26, who owns Powerbox Transaxles, has a few years head start in SCORE racing on Boyer, including two season point championships. He was the second driver for the title team in Class 1-2/1600 SCORE Point both in 2003 (with Eric Allen) and in 2004 (with Brian Jeffrey). In 2004, the Jeffrey/Pfankuch tandem were also the SCORE Overall Point champions.
In Laughlin, Pfankuch finished third and then drove solo again to win his class in March’s 22nd Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 in his 2005 Mirage-VW.
While admittedly off to a great start, both Boyer and Pfankuch are continuing to decide on a race-by-race basis if they will be able to push through to November’s season-ending 41st Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Obviously being up front in their Class point standings makes it an easier decision and an easier task of finding the sponsors needed to press forward. Both will have a second driver at the SCORE Baja 500, Cory will have has father Rick and Pfankuch will team with veteran Rick St. John, Carlsbad, Calif..
“Especially when you consider the short time we had to get ready for Laughlin, we have really had a great start to the 2008 SCORE Desert Series,” said Boyer, whose first SCORE race win was at last year’s SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 and who expects to campaign two cars in Class 1-2/1600 next year in the SCORE series with his father as the second driver of record. “Class 1-2/1600 is such a competitive class we feel very fortunate to be where we are right now and look forward to racing against the best our class has to offer at the upcoming 40th SCORE Baja 500.”
With SCORE points based both on number of starters and placing position within each class, Class 1-2/1600 had 16 starters in Laughlin and a race-high 28 starters in San Felipe. Class 1 had 27 and 18 starters at the first two races while SCORE Trophy-Truck had 24 and 17 vehicles take the green flag. Class 1-2/1600 has five drivers in the top 10 of the current SCORE Overall points while the unlimited Class 1 has three and the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck and Class 5/1600 have one each.
Following second place finishes in both Laughlin and San Felipe, Las Vegas’ veteran desert racer B.J. Richardson is third in the Overall and leads the unlimited Class 1 point standings in the 2008 SCORE Desert Series while his teammate Pat Dean is third in overall points and second in Class 1.
Racing for the Las Vegas Dissemination Company team in near-identical Chevy-powered Bunderson open-wheel desert race cars that are prepped by Valley Performance, Richardson has 128 points while Dean has 122.
Completing the top five in overall points is Class 5/1600 point leader Marcos Nunez, Ensenada, Mexico, in a VW Baja Bug.
Tied for sixth overall with 113 points each are B.J. Baldwin and Dave Caspino. Leading the marquee SCORE Trophy-Truck points after finishing second in Laughlin and seventh in San Felipe Baldwin, of Las Vegas, and the 2006 class point champion, leads the marquee SCORE Trophy-Truck racing division in his No. 97 Baldwin Motorsports Chevy Silverado. Caspino, Woodland Hills, Calif., is the reigning season point champion in his class and is third in Class 1-2/1600 in his Lothringer-VW.
Eighth overall and fourth in Class 1-2/1600 is Hiram Duran, Chula Vista, Calif., with 111 points in an Amplified-VW with ninth overall and third in Class 1 is the team of Chuck Dempsey, Horizon, Texas/Mark Levrett, Sparks, Nev., with 108 points in a HMS-Chevy.
Completing the top 10 in overall points is Edgar Avalos, Horizon, Texas, who is fifth in Class 1-2/1600 with 107 points.
In a three-way tie for 11th in overall points with 105 are Damen Jefferies, Rod Hall and Donald Moss.
Jefferies, Apple Valley, Calif., was the 1997 SCORE Overall point champion, is second in SCORE Trophy-Truck in a Chevy Silverado while Hall, Reno, Nev., and Moss, Sacramento, Calif., lead their respective classes after each won the first two races of the season.
Hall leads the Stock Mini class in a Hummer H3 while Moss is out front in Class 3 in a Ford Bronco.
Hall's youngest son, Chad, leads the Stock Full class in a Hummer H3Alpha.
With motorcycles and ATVs racing only in the three SCORE Baja races, the team of Robby Bell, Sun City, Calif./Johnny Campbell, San Clemente, Calif., lead the overall motorcycle and open Class 22 standings with 71 points after winning in San Felipe on the factory-supported No. 1x Johnny Campbell Racing Honda CRF450X.
On top of the ATV classes overall is the Class 24 team of Francisco Servin/Isaac Castro/Rocky Merino, of Chula Vista, Calif., with 73 points on a Honda TRX450R after their San Felipe race win.
Fourth in SCORE Trophy-Truck and 14th in the overall standings is Robbie Pierce, Santee, Calif., with 103 points in the No. 35 Mastercraft Seats Chevy Silverado while fifth currently in SCORE Trophy-Truck and tied for 17th in the overall totals is the team of Mark Post, Laguna Beach, Calif./Rob MacCachren, Las Vegas, the reigning SCORE Trophy-Truck and SCORE Overall point champions in the No. 1 Riviera Racing Ford F-150.
Female racers lead two SCORE classes so far as Heidi Steele, San Clemente, Calif., has teamed with Tim Lawrence, Santee, Calif., to lead Class 7SX in a Ford Ranger and Anna Cody, Spring Valley, Calif., leads the all female motorcycle team with co-riders Stacy Doerkson, Apple Valley, Calif./Cathy Duncan, Los Alamos, Calif./Sarah Kritch, Bakersfield, Calif., on a Honda CRF250X.
Among the car and truck classes, other point leaders after two races include: A.J. Rodriguez, Orange Calif. (Class 7, Ford Ranger), Kevin Carr, San Diego (Class 5, VW Baja Bug), Rodrigo Ampudia Jr./Rodrigo Ampudia Sr., Ensenada, Mexico (Class 8, Ford F-150), Mike Lawrence, Brea, Calif. (Class 10, Lothringer-VW), Steve Mamer, Holtville, Calif. (SCORE Lite, Raceco-VW) and Ramon Fernandez, Ensenada, Mexico (Class 11, VW Sedan).

F1 team bosses back expansion to 20 races

Formula One could expand to 20 grands prix in future but that should be the upper limit, team bosses said at a motor sport business forum in Bahrain on Wednesday.

The current season has 18 races, after 17 last year and a record 19 in 2005.

"I think 20 races is a big number but a sensible number," organisers quoted Red Bull team principal Christian Horner as saying in a review of the day's activities ahead of Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix.

"It's a huge logistical challenge but the way the teams are working with each other to self-regulate testing it is possible."

Honda chief executive Nick Fry agreed: "I think 20 grands prix is about right," he said.

"The balance of traditional circuits in Europe and circuits in new continents is vital. Formula One needs to go where the commercial market is and that market is moving from Europe and North America to the Middle East and Asia."

Formula One has two new venues this year, with a European Grand Prix in Valencia and the first night-time race in Singapore, but the U.S. Grand Prix at Indianapolis has gone.

Bahrain, which hosts the third round of the season, is currently the only Middle Eastern race but Abu Dhabi is pencilled in for next year while India and South Korea are scheduled for 2010.

A third Middle Eastern race could also be on the cards, with Dubai and Qatar interested and already having lavish facilities in place.

"We should have 20 races but not more. The future is definitely the Middle East region," said Force India's Colin Kolles. "There is a lot of investment coming out of this region and that is what is needed in Formula One."

McLaren boss Ron Dennis added that any expansion should not come at the expense of the European winter break.

"I welcome this expansion, and heartily commend (commercial supremo) Bernie Ecclestone for spearheading it," he told delegates.

"But I have two provisos: Firstly, that the season never expands to more than 20 grands prix, which I regard as a natural logistical limit and, secondly, that we preserve a closed season over the winter.

"The closed season is essential not only for logistical reasons but also in order to stir up a sense of anticipation in the hearts and minds of F1 fans."

F1 star fined for speeding .......again

Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton has been fined €578 (about R7400) for speeding by a court in Laon, France.

Hamilton had already been banned from driving in France for a month after he was caught driving at 196km/h in a Mercedes on a national road near the northern town of Laon on December 16, 2007 and paid a fine of €600 (R7650) in Janauary 2008

'He is aware of his responsibility towards young people'

The speed limit on French motorways is 130km/h. The car was impounded and was collected later by a friend of Hamilton.

Hamilton did not attend the hearing but his lawyer Jean-Francois Veroux said that "for Hamilton it's as if he had made a mistake during a GP because he is aware of his responsibility towards young people".

Veroux added that his client was also willing to participate in a road safety campaign.

A police spokesman said at the time: "He admitted the offence immediately and was really very polite," adding that Hamilton had said in his defence that the motorway was "very clear" at the time. – AFP

Singapore promising feast of technology

he world's first Formula One night race in Singapore will be a feast of hi-tech gadgetry, organisers say, featuring electronic flags and with around 1,500 lighting projectors illuminating the city.

But the iconic chequered flag will not be lost, with organisers sticking to the black-and-white fabric symbol to signify the race end.

The Sept. 28 night race will see the introduction of electronic flag displays to replace those traditionally waved by race officials, Valerio Maioli, the race's lighting designer, told Reuters in an interview.

Coloured flag signals are an important part of Formula One as they are one of the few ways teams can inform drivers of circuit conditions.
The new system will use electronic boards along the track to display the different flag colours.

"It is a more centralised system and I think it makes it more efficient," Maioli said.

The electronic flags would work well at the night race because of the brightness of the display board, he added.

Maioli said the installation of the lights was likely to stretch into early September.

"The lighting installation is proceeding very well .... the only possible area of delay will be the short stretch in front of the Bay Grandstand as the area is being used for National Day celebrations," he added.

Using public roads that snake around Singapore's financial district, the track will be four times brighter than a typical sports stadium, organisers said.


Ronn Bailey To Race In The First Transorientale Rally As The Only U.S. Driver in Russion To China Off-Road Race



-- The World’s Longest Off-Road Race, from June 12th to 28th Ends

at the Great Wall of China --

LAS VEGAS – March 31, 2008 – Vanguard Integrity Professionals CEO, CTO and founder, Ronn Bailey, today announced that he will be the only U.S. driver entering the first Transorientale Rally from St. Petersburg, Russia to Beijing, China – more than 10,000 km in 17 days -- June 12 to June 28, 2008.

Bailey’s team will be among the 160 cars, motorcycles, four-wheelers and trucks competing across three countries, through two continents, and over incredibly diverse terrain. He is piloting his custom built buggy powered by a Chevy LS7 engine and outfitted with a body composed of lightweight carbon fiber and Kevlar materials with an aerodynamically shaped with enclosed cockpit and gull wing doors.

An adventurer and amateur driver with only a few years of racing experience, Bailey was making his fourth attempt to complete the Dakar Rally 2008, an equally punishing race, through Africa. On Jan. 4, 2008, the Dakar Rally 2008 was cancelled by the organizers, Amaury Sport Organization (ASO), due to threats of terrorist attacks by al Qaeda against the Rally and its participants.

“It is truly exciting to be the sole U.S. car team in an extraordinary new endurance race through forbidden territory few have been allowed to visit, let alone drive race vehicles. And think of this, crossing sand dunes that are more than a mile high – now that is a challenge of epic proportions.” explains Ronn Bailey. “This is like a worldwide Olympic event, just for off-road racing. I’m going for the podium and plan to bring a medal home to America. From a sponsorship perspective, the visibility for the Vanguard brand name through the gateways of two major world economies is an extraordinary opportunity.”

Vanguard Integrity Professionals, which provides enterprise security software to 500 U.S. and foreign governments, multinational corporations and large enterprises, is sponsoring Bailey’s race team in the TransOrientale.

“I admire Ronn’s courage and dynamism and believe he has an excellent chance to finish among the top drivers,” says Giles Martineau, TransOrientale Organization Director. “Ronn has acquired significant off-road experience in the three Dakar rallies and local U.S. races he has entered which will be important facing the diverse terrain the competitors will encounter in Russia, Kazakhstan and China. TransOrientale will be the greatest race marathon event the world has ever seen and much tougher than Dakar.”

The TransOrientale Course

The Russian race features five short stages through dense forests, and fast sandy tracks with rollercoaster drops. In Kazakhstan, the four stages traverse numerous lakes and flood zones, though mountainous and difficult to navigate birch forests.

After one rest day before starting the seven TransOrientale stages in China, the race will continue along the Sino-Kazakh border. This series of stages winds through slippery undulating dunes as well as gigantic sandy mountain dunes which reach close to 2,000 meters in height. The last legs lead to the foot of the Great Wall, close to Beijing and the finish line on June 28.

The Transorientale Rally-Raid Marathon mixes competition, driving, navigation and adventure with several innovations in all terrain rallies that have been created to encourage greater participation. The “Relay” category allows sharing of one vehicle between several people, with each person driving a complete leg. The “Regularity Raid”, enables drivers to participate in parts of the marathon and is open to all vehicles. The “Discovery Rally-Raid” enables people who simply want to drive the course on roads but are ranked on their ability to find the correct routes and entry paths to reach designated sites. Bailey and his co-pilot will drive the entire 10,000 km race along.

About Ronn Bailey

For more than three decades, Bailey has been a recognized leader in information security technology. He has worked closely with governmental agencies and Fortune 500 companies worldwide to solve security issues at the highest levels. Bailey decided his first off-road race should be the 2005 Dakar. Since then, Bailey has raced in the 2005 Rallye Maroc race in Africa, the Dakar in 2006 and 2007, and has been a first through third place finisher in six North American and Mexican races. The TransOrientale 2008 will be his 11th race.

F1 boss Max Mosley has sick Nazi orgy with 5 hookers

By Neville Thurbeck
FORMULA One motor racing chief Max Mosley is today exposed as a secret sado-masochist sex pervert.

The son of infamous British wartime fascist leader Oswald Mosley is filmed romping with five hookers at a depraved NAZI-STYLE orgy in a torture dungeon. Mosley— a friend to F1 big names like Bernie Ecclestone and Lewis Hamilton— barks ORDERS in GERMAN as he lashes girls wearing mock DEATH CAMP uniforms and enjoys being whipped until he BLEEDS.
FAMOUS PAL: Max Mosley with Bernie Ecclestone
FAMOUS PAL: Max Mosley with Bernie Ecclestone

The multi-millionaire son of Sir Oswald, who was a pal of Adolf Hitler, plays a concentration camp commandant in a FIVE-HOUR torture chamber video.

Mosley—the most powerful man in motor-racing—barks orders in German as he WHIPS two hookers dressed in striped uniforms reminiscent of AUSCHWITZ garb while girls in Nazi uniforms look on.

At one point the wrinkled 67-year-old—who publicly likes to give the impression he has put his father's evil legacy behind him—yells "she needs more of ze punishment!" while brandishing a LEATHER STRAP over a brunette's naked bottom.

Then the lashes rain down as Mosley counts them out in German: "Eins! Zwei! Drei! Vier! Fünf! Sechs!"

With each blow, the girl yelps in pain as grinning, grey-haired Mosley becomes clearly aroused. And after the beating, he makes her perform a sex act on him.

Last month the urbane president of the FIA—Formula One's governing body—hit the headlines when he announced a crackdown on racism in the sport after McLaren ace Lewis Hamilton was abused by Spanish spectators.
Hooker in mock death camp clothes is gagged
WIFE: Jean

But on Friday the only ‘crackdowns' married Mosley was interested in were on bare buttocks...including his own.

Before hammering away at the girls he plays a cowering death camp inmate himself, having his GENITALS inspected and his hair searched for LICE—mocking the humiliating way Jews were treated by SS death camp guards in World War II.

Then, head bowed and tied up in chains, he is interrogated by a dominatrix before being chained up and LASHED so hard over a TORTURE BENCH that he WHIMPERS for mercy and has to have a wound dressing put on his backside.

His Jew-hating father—who had Hitler as guest of honour at his marriage—would have been proud of his warped son's command of German as he struts around looking for bottoms to whack.

But even the vile Thirties fascist—whose blackshirt thugs terrorised London's East End—might have been less impressed with the sordid company his offspring keeps.

Mosley's appointment with his hookers was at a smart £2million riverside flat on London's Chelsea Embankment at noon on Friday.

Our investigators obtained a graphic video of his sick antics.

The girls arrived first, led by the main dominatrix, a stern-faced blonde, carrying a suitcase laden with whips, chains and uniforms. Half an hour later, Mosley—married to devoted wife Jean since 1960—turned up wearing a smart overcoat and suit after making the short walk from his nearby London home.

The 6ft 2in former barrister once helped his father try to restart his political career in the Sixties with a new fascist Union Movement party. He was even a prospective parliamentary candidate himself.

But the party that got his vote on Friday was one involving violent perversion in a rigged-up basement torture dungeon.

After paying £2,500 in cash, Mosley—a good friend of F1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone—was ordered by the head hooker to strip as she played out his sick fantasy.

"OK, undress," she snapped. "UNDRESS! You are going to be punished to be shown how we treat prisoners in our facility."

As his white Y-fronts hit the floor, the powerfully built blonde barked out her orders: "Head down. Let's see if they have been keeping you clean at the other facility.

"Hurry up! Lie face down! Don't look at me!" Mosley meekly obeyed and was chained and manacled before another blonde dominatrix, wearing only a jacket, shirt and knee-length boots, entered the room.

As another hooker ticked off points on an inspection sheet, she roughly scrutinised his head and private parts before demanding his age. "I'm 42," he whispered, lying to attract a severe beating. He also lied about his name, saying he was called Tim Barnes, so the punishment would be really painful.

He got what he wanted. "You are now going to be punished," hissed the dominatrix. "You are going to receive 12 strokes of the birch plus another three for not telling me your real age. Then you will receive six strokes of the cane."

Mosley was then bent over and strapped naked to a leather torture bench. The muscular blonde dealt him 15 savage blows. Towards the end Mosley was whimpering and gasped for breath. Reddened and bruised, he then received a further six strokes with a cane.

His flogging over, he left the room before saying, "Thank you, mistress". After having his wounds dressed, Mosley makes the transformation from masochist to sadist. Now fully clothed, he bends two blonde girls over the whipping bench, their striped concentration camp-style uniform bottoms yanked down to expose their buttocks.

He converses in German with one girl throughout the torture, loving every minute of death camp role-play, while the other girl pleads: "I don't know what you are saying, so I don't know what to do."

Oxford-educated Mosley has refused to condemn his father who was considered so dangerous he was interned during the war. He once said in an interview: "He was wonderful as a person. But I don't think my father would have made a good dictator. He talked tough but, fundamentally, he was too soft."

Whereas his son is a hard man—especially when it comes to beating girls' naked bottoms. One of the hookers is strapped into a gag to stifle her screams as Mosley lays into her backside in front of the other four girls. With a Nazi swagger, he counts each stroke in German before having sex with his ‘victim'.

A frantic orgy then begins, as a brunette hooker is strapped to a bench before a dominatrix uses a sex toy on her. Later she performs a lesbian act on one of the blondes. Red-faced and panting, Mosley looks on like a child in a sweet shop, but surrounded by bright red bottoms.

The orgy lasted almost five hours and the five hookers spent the final ten minutes laughing and drinking wine together. One said: "The girls have all had a good seeing-to!"

After the sex marathon, Mosley dressed again and had a quick pit-stop, turning down wine in favour of a cup of tea. At 5.05pm, he put on his overcoat and disappeared into the blustery afternoon to resume his other life as Max the respectable motor-racing mogul who will be officiating at the next Formula One Grand Prix in Bahrain next weekend.

It was his wife of 48 years, Jean, who introduced him to his love of motorsport. After meeting him at a fascist Union Movement rally she took him to his first race meeting to watch British ace Stirling Moss.

On choosing the grand prix world—a decision his father opposed as "dangerous and unwise"—over politics, Mosley said: "It was an escape from the political arguments. I got fed up. Nobody knew me in racing, though in Germany and Austria people used to sidle up and whisper, ‘Your father vaz a great man'."

In 2005, Mosley—who has two children, Alexander, 37, and 35-year-old Patrick—was made a Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur, one of the highest decorations in France, for his services to motor sport. In the late 1970s, he became the official legal adviser to the Formula One Constructors Association (FOCA)—the body that represents the teams.

With his sharp legal mind and devotion to the sport, he soon rose to the top and was first elected president of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) in 1993.

Speaking of his role in the FIA and his friendship with Bernie Ecclestone, he once said: "My job as president of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile isn't paid. But I've done business with Bernie outside Formula One. In property mainly.

"Money doesn't turn me on and I like to think I can leave whenever I want."

Money doesn't have to turn him on—he's already rich. A multi-millionaire, he has a base in Monaco and a £3 million home in London's fashionable Chelsea.

As well as inheriting from his father and mother—society beauty and Nazi sympathiser Diana Mitford—he made a fortune selling his shares in March Engineering in 1977.

But the shadow of his Nazi father is always in the background. Mosley Jnr once claimed his father—who died in 1980—disliked Hitler, thinking him "over the top", but he admitted Oswald admired Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.

He said of his mother, who died in 2003: "It was true she liked Hitler. Apparently he was an enormously attractive personality."

Now Mosley has shown his true colours too—and brought a new kind of shame on his already tarnished family name.
Evil father was a Hitler wannabe

OSWALD Mosley (right) was the closest thing the UK had to a rabble-rousing Hitler in the years leading up to World War II.

He rallied his blackshirt army of fascists against Jews and Communists. His famous march through London's East End—an area heavily populated by Jews—sparked the infamous Battle of Cable Street in 1936.

Hitler admired him so much he was guest of honour at his wedding to society beauty Diana Mitford, held at the Berlin home of evil Nazi chief Joseph Goebbels.

Max's aunt Unity Mitford was also a devoted Nazi. After Britain declared war on Germany in 1939, she sent a farewell letter to Hitler and shot herself in the head with the pearl-handled pistol the German leader had given her as a gift. She died of her injuries several years later.
