Thanks for dropping into Race of Two Worlds. If you think the wheel is the best invention since fire and you believe that rubbing is racing then we should get along just fine.
I’m Phil Charnock, a lifelong racing aficionado with a penchant for almost all disciplines: F1, Nascar, Indycar, sports cars, touring cars, rallying and even those lunatics on two wheels, I’ll be musing on the lot of them.
I’m no ‘fan-boy’ who judges talent on a race-by-race basis and I don’t always believe the hype. I’m the third generation of a racing mad family with a lot to say on this crazy sport of ours. I’m no insider and I won’t pretend to be one either. My inspiration and information will doubtless come from other far more reputable sources, so I’ll let you know where I heard what and from whom, unless it came to me in a cheese-induced dream.
Some of you will know exactly where the name of this blog comes from – the Race of Two Worlds was the apt title given to the clashes between the Grand Prix grandees and the Indianapolis upstarts at Monza, the cathedral of speed, back when Ferraris were blood red and the drivers were red blooded.
Feel free to comment away, but mind your Ps and Qs if you please. If you like what you see then spread the word. Cheers for checking out Race of Two Worlds, see you at the chequered flag.
