Bud Moeller let us put a camera on his Barrichello F1 Clienti car while he was at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last week. This one is of Bud doing a shakedown lap after being rolled out. We wanted to show off just a tease and take you on a shakedown lap with our friend and regular Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion Participant Bud Moeller and his F2003 GA chassis #228 Formula 1 Clienti car which was originally driven by Rubens Barrichello. It was a rare privilege to ride along with Bud, who was having so much fun driving his newest F1 car.
The most important motorcycle race on the west coast, the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, features the MotoGP World Championship. The Formula 1 of two-wheel racing, the MotoGP series stars the planet’s greatest motorcycle riders vying for the title of World Champion. The 2011 season begins with a slew of rider/motorcycle changes, with multi-time champion Valentino Rossi switching to Ducati, Casey Stoner moving to Honda, and American hot-shot Ben Spies to the Factory Yamaha team. However, all will have to get past the defending event and world champion Jorge Lorenzo, and Red Bull ace Dani Pedrosa. A full weekend of racing activity includes the AMA categories Pro Motorcycle SuperSport, Pro Daytona SportBike, and Pro National Guard SuperBike.
