Top Gear, new Clarkson DVD

JC’s Thriller

Ever wondered what Clarkson gets up in his spare time to between Top Gear series? Driving mad supercars and blowing things up, that’s what.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at our exclusive trailer from JC’s new DVD, Clarkson: Thriller.

Yes, is the only place you’ll find this exclusive preview of everyone’s favourite angry giant man wrestling the Pagani Zonda F Roadster, Aston Martin DBS and Porsche 911 around Alpine roads, fitting a set of speed camera-destroying rocket launchers to a Porsche 944 and enlisting the Royal Marines to help him blow up a Lexus.

Which is exactly what he’d have been doing whether the cameras were rolling or not.

Top Gear goes Russia

By the end of the year there will be a Clarksonov, Hammondchenko and Mayovski roaming the frozen steppes of Russia. Probably in Ladas.

Yes, there’s going to be a Top Gear Russia. Made in Russia for the Russians. A bit like the Aussie TG, but with more back-to-front letters and fewer boomerangs.

Everything’s a bit hush-hush at the moment, but we know that it’s going to run for 15 episodes initially, around the end of this year. The Russian Top Gear magazine has been doing well over there since its launch in 2004, so hopefully the locals will be familiar with TG’s ‘ambitious but rubbish’ philosophy.

First up, though, we’ve got to find the local presenters. Rumours that Clarkson, May and Hammond will be making a guest appearance clad in bearskin hats remain unconfirmed.

We can’t imagine there’ll be any shortage of candidates for the arduous job of thrashing supercars around the beautiful Russian outback. Or whatever the Russians call the outback.

There’s no word on what studio or test track they’ll be using yet, but we have glorious visions of a giant Russian Clarkson firing up a Murcielago in a decommissioned nuclear silo, surrounded by hoards of TG faithful wrapped up in layers of wintery clothes.

And bearskin hats. It’s all about the bearskin hats.

Daughter of F1 boss poses half-nude for PETA

With Canada's Grand Prix on the ropes for next year and F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone in the doghouse nationwide for his role in booting Montreal off the 2009 schedule, it's difficult to accept the fact that the man has also done some very good things during his tenure. Three very good things, actually: one daughter being Deborah, the other Tamara and the last Petra.

The middle child, or more accurately the first child with current spouse Slavica, isn't a fashion magnate like Petra, but nevertheless the model and TV personality does a pretty good job of attracting attention when wrapped in a checkered flag. Tamara donned the flag and nothing else to support People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in an anti-fur campaign, posing for a series of print ads with the slogan "Going fur-free is the winning formula."

The idea isn't new, as other celebrities have posed for PETA showing even less "flag", or "wing" in the case of supermodel Natasja Vermeer who posed nude other than very long locks and a set of angel wings on her backside with the tagline "Earn Your Wings, Lose the Fur". Even actress Alicia Silverstone (Batman & Robin, Clueless) posed nude for still and video camera to promote vegetarianism, a topic "Live Free or Die Hard" and "Mission: Impossible III" star Maggie Q took on (or rather, took off) for PETA.

Meanwhile, Eva Mendes posed nude for PETA's holiday ad campaign, "I'd Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur." Actress Christina Applegate went naked for a PETA ad too, as a faux lesbian stripper. Yes, that one pretty well takes the cake.

Less racy but still nude was sexy supermodel, actress and spokesperson for Dollhouse Clothing Joanna Krupa, while US Olympic swimming gold medalist Amanda Beard took less of it off for the animals.

One of the best-known photos was of Baywatch star Traci Bingham's back and derriere sectioned off (with body paint) into cuts of meat, promoting vegetarianism, while one of the more interesting was "Queen of Porn" Jenna Jameson's ad promoting animal birth control dubbed "Sometimes Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing."

Comparatively conservative, "Dancing with the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba recently put on fishnets and posed with her black Persian cat Shadow to promote neutering and spaying pets, while others have done risqué ads for PETA to promote animal rights including supermodel Christie Turlington, Charlotte Ross from NYPD Blue, ousted American Idol star Vanessa Olivarez, Playboy model Holly Madison and star of "The Girls Next Door" (not a big stretch for her), Puerto Rican lovely Roselyn Sanchez (Without a Trace), British actress (and ex-wife of Jude Law) Sadie Frost, Australian actress and singer Sophie Monk, Australian actress/singer Imogen Bailey, Australian model and actress Annalise Braakensiek, actress Carre Otis (Wild Orchid), who is one of the few showing top-up frontal nudity, and Twin Peaks star Sheryl Lee, caged and painted like a tiger.

Have any guys gotten in on the PETA action? Yes they have, some of the most noteworthy being hoops star Denis Rodman (orange hair and all), actor David Cross (in a humorous pose), and celebrity tattoo artist Steve'0 Hennagir.

F1 stars Michael Schumacher and brother Ralf, plus Honda driver Jensen Button haven't posed al fresco for PETA yet, but they have joined Tamara in the cause by denouncing fur for clothing.

As far as scantily clad Formula 1 personalities go, Tamara brings a new level of class to a motorsport series still trying to get beyond the image of FIA boss Max Mosley and five prostitutes caught on tape while playing out sadomasochistic Nazi fantasies. Thank you, Tamara.

FIA proposes five-year plan to save Formula One


Nascar Hits Wall as Financial Crisis Dents Sponsorships Demand

Sponsors of Nascar, the No. 2 sport on U.S. television after professional football, are slamming on the brakes because of the world's financial crisis.

General Motors Corp., Chrysler Corp., Sears Holdings Corp. and Chevron Corp. will cut or drop sponsorships next season. Dario Franchitti, the 2007 Indianapolis 500 winner was forced out of the stock-car series by a lack of sponsors.

Teams with family names revered in stock-car racing like Petty, Waltrip and Earnhardt may enter 2009 with unfunded cars. The circuit might even have trouble filling 43-car fields.

``There's maybe 26 teams that have sponsorship for next year, and five or six that have partial,'' said Michael Waltrip, an owner and driver who shored up his finances by selling a stake to Fortress Investment Group LLC founder Robert Kauffman a year ago. Waltrip, 45, faces 2009 with only one of three cars fully sponsored. He said he might have to shut down one team.

Waltrip, two-time winner of the Daytona 500, isn't alone. Dale Earnhardt Inc., founded by the seven-time Nascar champion and now run by his widow, has secured a backer next season for only one of four cars. Financial, automotive and consumer goods companies are balking at paying as much as $25 million to support a top team amid job cuts, seized credit markets and slow spending.

Junior Sponsorship

Earnhardt's 34-year-old son, Dale Earnhardt Jr., faces the prospect of a season without sponsorship for the team he owns in the second-tier Nationwide Series. Nascar's most recognizable driver hasn't yet found a company to replace the U.S. Navy as sponsor for his car, driven by Brad Keselowski.

He said he wouldn't run the car without a backer because of the estimated $7 million it takes to compete in Nationwide's 35 races.

``The economy is the way it is, there isn't much you can do about it,'' Earnhardt said after qualifying for Nascar's Talladega, Alabama, Oct. 5 race. ``A lot of these guys are going to walk around empty-handed next year.''

Nascar has some support from its $4.5 billion in television contracts that run though 2014, said Dennis McAlpine, president of researcher McAlpine Associates in Scarsdale, New York. Nascar and the tracks split the money from the contract, which is in its second year, McAlpine said. Teams get a share of the television money in race purses.

Completing Fields

TV contracts won't be enough to keep some racing teams on the track as the crisis deepens, he said.

``It may show up in the cars,'' McAlpine said. ``They may not be able to get full fields next season.''

Chevron said in August it would no longer use a Nascar sponsorship to sell its Texaco Havoline motor oil after 21 years in the racing league's top series, citing a decision to support more cars in racing's lower levels. The cut leaves Chip Ganassi Racing without a primary backer for the car driven by Juan Pablo Montoya next season.

Ganassi lost Molson Coors Brewing Co.'s Coors beer as a sponsor of its No. 40 Dodge last season. Unable to find a replacement, Ganassi shuttered the team in July and fired 70 crew members. Driver Franchitti will return to the IndyCar Series next year.

Economist Nouriel Roubini, the professor who predicted the financial crisis in 2006, said the U.S. will suffer its worst recession in 40 years. Over an 18-to-24-month span unemployment will rise to 9 percent and home prices will fall another 15 percent.

Selling Sponsorships

Cuts in consumer spending caused by the slowdown will make all sports advertising more difficult to sell next year, said Don Hinchey of the Bonham Group, a sports marketing consultant in Denver. That means the top teams are going to have the most success drawing money.

In Nascar, that's the richest. Four car owners -- Roush Fenway Racing, Hendrick Motorsports, Richard Childress Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing -- locked up all 12 spots in the top Sprint Cup Series championship playoff.

Roush Fenway, which is co-owned by Boston Red Sox owner John Henry's Fenway Sports Group, last month snapped up United Parcel Service Inc.'s sponsorship from Waltrip.

Childress grabbed General Mills Inc. from Petty Enterprises in April and Caterpillar Inc. from Bill Davis Racing in June. Neither Petty, a family-owned team that fielded a car in Nascar's first race in its top stock-car series at Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1949, nor Davis have secured replacements.

Helicopter Rides

Team owners may have to cut in other areas to maintain spending on improving performance, said Richard Childress, whose cars carried Earnhardt Sr. to six championships. Teams may have to hold back on new shops, corporate hospitality and perks like having helicopters transport drivers to tracks.

``We'll have to look at other ways to save the money, put the money where it's going to be the most effective,'' Childress, 63, said after his No. 31 car won the Bank of America 500 last weekend.

General Motors, whose stock last week dropped to a 58-year low, won't renew naming rights for the three Nascar Sprint Cup Series races it sponsors next season and will cut supplies of vehicles provided to racetracks. The Detroit-based company didn't say how much it would save by the measures.

Nascar is looking for a backer for its third-tier truck races after Sears departs next month, and Dodge said in September it will no longer support teams in the series. The racing league still expects to have full 43-car fields in its top Sprint Cup Series races next season.

``We know it's more challenging than ever,'' said spokesman Kerry Tharp in Charlotte. ``At this point we still anticipate having full fields for next year.''

For Earnhardt Jr., a third-generation racer whose JR Motorsports shop is in his hometown of Mooresville, North Carolina, survival is the first responsibility of a team owner.

``We'll race the races we can afford to race,'' Earnhardt said. ``A lot of the people that work there are family and so that place has to be open.''

SCORE Baja 1000 Start Draw Results

October 12, 2008

Nearly 350 entries expected
Collins in SCORE Trophy-Truck, G. Steele in M/C
Draw Pole positions for 41st Tecate SCORE Baja 1000

Racers from 37 States, 14 countries entered to date in nationally-televised Granddaddy of all desert races;
Race to be held in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, Nov. 19-23

LOS ANGELES—If Saturday's ‘live’ drawing for starting positions is any indication, November's 41st Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert race should add another colorful chapter to the legacy of the world’s best known desert race. Brian Collins in SCORE Trophy-Truck and Grant Steele in Class 22 for open motorcycles drew the pole positions for the legendary granddaddy of all desert races.
An impressive total of 296 vehicles officially entered in time for Saturday’s live drawing for starting positions, by class, held during the SCORE Fiesta at the newest Off Road Wareouse facility in Temecula, Calif.
With nearly 350 entries expected to compete in 28 Pro and 7 Sportsman classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs, the granddaddy of all desert races will be held Nov. 19-23 in Ensenada, Mexico. Completing its 35th year as the World’s foremost desert racing sanctioning body, the event is the finale of the five-race 2008 SCORE Desert Series. To date entries have come from 37 U.S. States and 14 countries.
While late entries are accepted up to race day, the total of 296 entries officially entered in time for Saturday’s live start drawing represents the third-largest drawing total in the 41-year history of the storied event.
The SCORE Baja 1000 day Saturday included the Baja Pits bar-b-que, a pit crew competition, vendor’s village, along with appearances by several of the top SCORE desert racers and numerous SCORE desert racing vehicles on display. There were also be special showings of official SCORE Baja race DVDs produced by Aura360 along with a raffle for Coco’s Corner and another for Baja Pits.
With massive crowds reaching nearly 300,000 anticipated to again be spread out along the rugged course that travels through the Pine Forest to near Mexicali, down Laguna Salada to San Felipe and back to the Pacific Coast through Santo Tomas covering much of the northern half of the majestic Baja California peninsula. The race will start for the 34th time and finish for the 19th time in Ensenada.
The motorcycle and ATV classes will start their journey at 6:30 a.m. (Friday, Nov. 21) with the car and truck classes starting at approximately 10:30 a.m., or three hours after the last ATV leaves the line. Vehicles will leave in 30-second intervals in the elapsed-time race and while the fastest finishers are expected to complete the course in approximately 14 hours. All vehicles will have a 31-hour time limit to become official finishers in the legendary adventure.
The race will start and finish on Boulevard Costero along the picturesque Bahia de Todos Santos in front of the historical Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center in the heart of Ensenada.
Collins, 46, of Las Vegas, is currently second in SCORE Trophy-Truck points and won this year’s Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 in March in his No. 12 Dodge Ram1500. Splitting the driving with Collins will be veteran racer Chuck Hovey, Escondido, Calif. The drawing featured a season-high 30 entries in the SCORE Trophy-Truck, the marquee SCORE racing division for high-tech, 800-horsepower, unlimited production trucks.
Grant Steele, 38, Temecula, Calif., and his team, will lead 14 entries to date in Class 22 for open motorcycles on a Honda CRF450X.
Drawing the first start in the ATV classes was the veteran team led by Greg Row, 45, Alpine, Calif., who will ride a Bombardier DS650 in Class 25.
A unique part of Saturday’s drawing was the special drawing for the top 10 finishers from the nearest previous SCORE Baja race entered in the current race in both SCORE Trophy-Truck and the unlimited Class 1. For this race it was the top 10 finishers from this year’s 40th Tecate SCORE Baja 500.
NASCAR Sprint Cup team owner/driver Robby Gordon, Charlotte, N.C., whose roots are in SCORE desert racing, drew the 28th starting position in SCORE Trophy-Truck in the Team Gordon No. 77 Chevy CK1500. Gordon will be heading to the the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 right after driving in the NASCAR Sprint Cup season finale in Florida on Nov. 16.
Making its debut in the race in the marquee SCORE Trophy-Truck division will be the new No. 81 Volkswagen Baja Race Touareg TDI, the first clean Turbo-diesel vehicle ever raced in SCORE Trophy-Truck. The new vehicle will be driven by the veteran team of Mark Miller, Cave Creek, Ariz./Ryan Arciero, Foothill Ranch, Calif. With seven career SCORE Trophy-Truck race wins between them, including three together, Miller/Arciero drew the 14th starting position for the race in the first Turbo-diesel to run in the featured SCORE racing division.
Three entries with second-generation SCORE desert racers feature drivers who are running NASCAR series. Las Vegas’ Brendan Gaughan is a NASCAR Truck Series regular who will race in the unlimited Class 1 in Baja, while Justin Loftin, Westmorland, Calif., who drives in the NASCAR West Series and Brian Ickler, Poway, Calif., who has won four races this year in the NASCAR East Series
“To have 295 entries in the drawing for start positions for the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 is incredible any year, but to have it this year with everything going on in the U.S. and the world is phenomenal,” said Sal Fish, the legendary desert racing pioneer who has been part of SCORE since soon after it was founded in 1973. “We have had eight races in 40 previous races in this event with 300 or more starters so it looks like this year’s race will join the very elite 300 club.”
Pre-race festivities on Thursday, Nov. 19, for the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, including the vastly popular tech and contingency of all vehicles and the SCORE Manufacturer’s Midway will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Boulevard Costero in front of the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center. The pre-race mandatory driver/rider briefing will be held Thursday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Cathedral Room at the Riviera del Pacifico Cultural Center. Racer and media registration will be held at the San Nicolas Resort Hotel from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 19 and from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 20.
While entries will be accepted up to race morning (Friday, Nov. 21), late entries will be assigned the next available number and starting position within each class.
The post-race Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 Survivor’s Celebration will be held poolside at the San Nicolas Resort Hotel at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 23.
Besides Collins/Hovey, Miller/Arciero and Gordon, other entries among the veterans in the talented 30-truck field in the marquee SCORE Trophy-Truck division include Mark Post, Laguna Beach, Calif./Rob MacCachren, Las Vegas (No. 1-Ford F-150), B.J.

Leading the seven Sportsman classes in the race is Sportsman Motorcycle over 250cc which had 32 entries and Sportsman Motorcycle under 250cc which had 16 entries in the drawing.

Among the other early entries is the venerable Rod Hall, Reno, Nev., who is one of the only two individuals who has raced in all 40 previous Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 races.
The legendary Hall, 69, of Reno, Nev., has a race-record 19 career class wins in this race and is the only driver to have competed every year in a car or truck class. Hall returns this year as the defending class champion in a Hummer H3 in the Stock Mini class.
Pre-running on the approximately 634-mile loop course will officially begin on Saturday, Nov. 1. Pre-running will be allowed only from Ojos Negros and back. One way pre-running from the start to Ojos Negros will be allowed only on Wednesday and Thursday of race week (Nov. 19 and 20).
It’s the oldest and most well known of all desert races, and it remains as the single most appealing accomplishment to a driver. Since 1967, the Granddaddy of all desert races has been run over the mysterious Baja California peninsula.
This year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert race will be televised on a delayed basis as a one-hour NBC Sports special for the fifth consecutive year, scheduled to air at 1 p.m. (EST) on Sunday, Dec. 14 on the NBC Television Network.

The new 6,000-square foot ORW Temecula store is the fifth outlet of the popular group in San Diego County. Off Road Warehouse, headquartered in the Kearny Mesa area of San Diego has been a racer’s favorite since 1972. The Temecula store celebrated its grand opening on Sept. 27.
