Celebrating over 50 years of Racing with Ron Burton

For years, reknowned artist Ron Burton was one of the most connected individuals in motorsports, and during his 50-year heyday he created spectacular original artwork of IndyCar, NASCAR, NHRA and Formula 1 drivers, races and signature moments. Burton began painting in the 1960s, and he once wrote that he “loved, lived and painted auto racing and auto racing art in the shadows of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.” Many of Burton’s paintings and trophy designs are enshrined in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway...

Hamilton again in 2021? No reason to think otherwise

As the 2021 Formula One season starts, there is no reason to believe Lewis Hamilton won’t be the driver to beat, even as Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen seem to be in the hunt for their first title. Hamilton is riding an almost incomprehensible streak of success, winning six World Championships over the past seven seasons, with at least nine wins in each of those years. In fact, he has won at least 10 races in those...

Caesars Palace GP had brief but important role in F1 history

The Caesars Palace Grand Prix was short-lived both in Formula One and CART, but the popular Las Vegas event left a lasting impression not only on those who attended but the 1981 World Championship in particular. Williams’ Carlos Reutemann entered the season-ending event with a single-point lead over Brabham’s Nelson Piquet, and Reutemann won the pole for the 75-lap race. It seemed he was poised to win what would be his first and only series championship. But Reutemann got a bad start...

F1 and INDYCAR drivers prefer helmets from Bell and Arai

It’s remarkable how much market domination helmet manufacturers Bell and Arai have in Formula 1 and the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. Bell had 15 of the 33 drivers in this year’s Indianapolis 500 wearing their helmets and 11 of the F1 drivers. The two Bell models shown in Hall of Fame Collection’s latest video were worn by Fernando Alonso in this year’s Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval race.  The latest model is the HP-77 which is slightly heavier than last year’s model but offers...

Verstappen of the gold standard (and so is his suit)

By now everyone knows that Max Verstappen is one of the most impressive still-young drivers in Formula One, with nine race wins to his name. Verstappen, 23, became the youngest race winner in F1 history in 2016 when he won the Spanish Grand Prix, and he keeps knocking at the door for more wins. He started second at the Intercity Istanbul Park circuit already possessing nine podiums on the season. He finished sixth. (The photo in this blog is from his 2017...
