78 years ago today Fall Gelb was launched with German forces rolling through the Low Countries and things wrapped up about 6 weeks later with most of France occupied and the remainder under the control of the Vichy government.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is nigh upon us!
Trying to watch it last year was frustrating because it seemed Fox looked for any excuse they could find to preempt the coverage. I finally found a live stream on YouTube so I watched the race on he computer. This year, if Fox tries any funny business I have a Fire Stick, the YouTube app and I’m not afraid to use them…
Per roadandtrack.com the broadcast schedule will be:
· June 17 – FS1 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM
· June 17 – FS2 1:00 PM to 1:00 AM (June 18)
· June 17 – FS1 1:00 AM to 9:30 AM (June 18)
· The entire race is streamed live on FOX Sports GO
I’ll keep an eye out for YouTube live streams just in case. Once I find a good stream to follow, I’ll post that up as well.
UPDATE 1 – From the Ford Performance Channel on YouTube:
UPDATE 2 – I finally figured out how to use the FOX Sports GO app on the Fire Stick. That may be the only way to fly
Enjoy and happy racing!
The 70 was the ultimate expression of René Couzinet’s incredibly beautiful Arc-en-Ciel (Rainbow) family. Powered by a trio of Hispano-Suiza 12 Nb engines, the third Arc-en-Ciel made its first flight on February 1932.

I’m in for $20, maybe $30 if there’s some overtime on the next check…
Provided you have the cash to spare, you can get one heck of a deal on a whole squadron of preowned jet trainers, as-is, where-is.
“Awesome deal. Package of 20 upgraded Fougas with 830,000 parts. Owner wants them sold this week. Only $200K for everything!” reads the post at Raptor Aviation of Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Since recently reinstating our popular I Am The Speedhunter program, we’ve been receiving story submissions from all around the world, many of which are leading us to some simply amazing builds. Case in point, Adrien Faure’s spectacular body-dropped and boosted Volkswagen Karmann Ghia from Landivisiau, France.
With Adrien’s brother Maxime on camera duty, we’re happy to be able to bring you this spotlight post on what is a stunning custom creation, but of course it wasn’t always this way.
When Adrien picked up the car in 2010 and embarked on project, it threw up a few surprises. “It was my dream car, but I discovered that it was very rusty,” he says. Such things are to be expected when you start stripping an old car back to its bare bones, but in this case it necessitated the purchase of another car. In its final form today you’re looking at 1966 body slung over a ’71 left-hand drive floor pan and running gear, but that’s just the start of it…
