Mark Webber’s GT2 RS and Silverstone Pax Laps

Mark Webber made his Formula One debut in 2002, scoring Minardi’s first points in three years at his and Stoddart’s home race. After his first season Jaguar Racing took him on as lead driver. During two years with the generally uncompetitive team Webber several times qualified on the front two rows of the grid and outperformed his team mates. His first F1 win was with Red Bull Racing in the 2009 German Grand Prix, which followed second places at the 2009 Chinese, Turkish, and British Grands Prix. By the end of 2009, Webber had scored eight podiums, including another victory in Brazil. His eight podiums in 2009 compares to only two podiums in the first seven years of his career.

With a CV like that it is of no surprise that he knows how to drive a car, and he owns a Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

So the Porsche marketing team set to work on publicising the formula 1 drivers purchase, by offering a lucky few to be passengers around silverstone.

Webber describes the 650hp Porsche GT2-RS as a little bit naughty, that to me is like calling Fred West innocent.

2012 BMW 6 Series Spied at the Nurburgring (F13)

Today at the Nurburgring we spotted 3 different models of the 6 series Cabriolet one was the 650cv/cp and the other too was a 640cp/cv.

The new 6 series lineup will feature a coupe, a convertible and a 4 door coupe along the lines of the Gran Coupe Concept.

Rumors also have BMW working on a late addition offering the m6 variant late in 2012-13 with the 4.4 twin turbo from the f10 m5.

It looks like BMW are serious to improve the 6 Series with the new generation 6 and we expect the first showings of the upcoming cars either late 2010-2011.
