Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline November 2014
books The Library Muse

Iím writing this previous to the U.S. Gran Prix in Texas. Itís been quite a year so far. The four-time reigning world champ, Sebastian Vettle, is leaving Red Bull to go to Ferrari to help develop the team and bring it back to its former glory. This is after repeatedly being out-paced by his teammate, Daniel Ricciardo. He hopes to copy Michael Schumacherís success when he left Benetton to go to Ferrrari. Will Vettle do as well as Schuey? Itís hard to say, but I donít think that he has it in him.

Itís also interesting to note that Williams (now Williams Martini Racing) is ranked third in the standings, behind Mercedes and Red Bull. To show my support, I only use Martini and Rossi vermouth in my martinis and Negroniís. And I give them a lot of support. What I donít support is the race in Singapore. Itís an ugly track and so hot that they have to race at night. Letís go back to Holland or Mexico.

Racers Richard Williams, 1997, 290 pages, hard bound
ĎThis is a book about the men who drive racing cars, and about their place in our lives. It is about how sport reveals character, and how character is sometimes deformed by sport. It is the story of three drivers: Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher, and Jacques Villeneuve. It is about their effect on each other, their effect on us, and our effect on them.í This is not a book full of racing stats, but an account of the attitudes and emotions of the key players during the 1996 season. Donated by The Goebberts.

Racers MG Ė Just for the Record
CD, 45 minutes
This CD is from my personal collection. The sounds of various MGs, including pre-war, under power or racing, and an interview with John Thornley. Also brief interviews or comments by the car owners. Itís fun to listen to the Brits attempting to speak English. Whereís Henry Higgins when you need him?
