Three Racing Car Drivers Who Love Playing Poker
Mar 12th, 2019 by admin

Racing car drivers live on the edge by overtaking at high speeds and narrowly avoiding collisions, and off the racetrack they often try to reproduce that same rush of adrenaline. It should therefore be unsurprising that many drivers play poker in their spare time to simulate the thrill they get from racing.

To many, Michael Schumacher is the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time with a staggering seven world championships to his name. But the German racer also has a great love of poker, regularly pitting his wits against other drivers from the Formula 1 paddock and playing in charity tournaments. And while Giancarlo Fisichella never rivaled the great Schumacher on the track – his best finish in the world championship was fourth in 2006 – the Italian has the honor of becoming the first Formula 1 driver to be signed by a professional poker team. In honing his skills, Fisichella has stressed the importance of practicing using live dealer casino games. And while playing Texas hold ’em online is the game of choice for Fisichella and many other players, there are many other games to try such as Caribbean Stud.

Another keen poker player is NASCAR driver, Jason White. The former Camping World Truck Series driver entered the no-limit hold ’em main event at the World Series of Poker in 2014, and remarkably managed to finish ahead of thousands of other competitors including poker icon Phil Ivey, World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Michael Binger, and UK professional John Eames. White finished 348th out of 6,683 players and took home $33,734, not bad for a few days away from the racetrack. One quick-witted observer quipped that it was more than he could have earned racing trucks. Perhaps White might consider a change of profession after his big win.

How to start a local car club and what to do at the club
Nov 12th, 2018 by admin

A car club is a great way to get individuals together who share a common interest in and love for cars. Such a club can focus on a specific category, e.g. Classic Cars, or it can be even more focused, e.g. Mercedes Sports Cars of a certain era.

Step one to establish a car club would be to define its mission. Apart from sharing a love for cars, what else are members going to do? Examples could include charitable events, community involvement, meetings, car shows, and fun events such as breakfast runs, attending major sports events together, barbecues, and even casino nights where all the winnings go towards the club.

Step two is to schedule your first meeting at a public venue and give prospective members at least 30 days notice. Start small, perhaps at a local coffee shop. As the club grows you might need a bigger venue.

The first meeting is to welcome new members and to draft the final charter. After that start promoting the club. Open social media pages on Facebook, Twitter etc. and make sure every member is on an email, Whatsapp or SMS list so they can be notified of future gatherings.

Later on you might want to join a higher club governing body that can provide more credibility and visibility to your own club. They should also be able to help you with ideas on events your members can attend and/or sponsor.

The main aim of all of this is to Have Fun. A car club is a great way for people who share a common interest to get to know each other and to create unforgettable memories.

To end just one example of a great fun event: enjoy a casino evening where everyone plays casino with a live online dealer. A good idea is for all the winnings to go towards funding the club’s future activities.

A great option in this regard is ExclusiveCasinoClub, which offers an exclusive and more personal online experience than most others.

2 Best supercars of 2014
Feb 26th, 2015 by admin

Supercars are the stuff of dreams for many, with their striking designs and thunderous engines. That said, 2014 was a highly competitive year for super car manufacturers, and the following are two of the best cars released:

koenigsegg

Koenigsegg One:1

The Koenigsegg One:1 was released in 2014 coinciding with the car maker’s 20th birthday. Its strength lies in its speed and flat out, it can reach 273mph. The ‘One:1’ on its badge is in reference to its one horsepower for every kilogram ratio. Of course, all that power has to come from a pretty immense engine, but it is a decent 5.0-litre V8 assisted by two turbochargers. However, the horses generated are reality defying, standing at 1329bhp and developing some 1,011 torques. To keep everything sane in the corners, bits of aerodynamic assist components such as a rear wing and front flaps are available.

McLaren 650S

The McLaren 650S was built to jostle with top cars from Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini. While the MP4-12C was a great contender to the Ferrari 458 and slightly outgunning it in horsepower, which was 562hp, the 650S makes no frills about its intentions with 650 PS emblazoned on its badge, which is really 641 horsepowers. It comes with fantastic aerodynamic improvements, providing as much as 40 percent more downforce at speeds of 150mph, which greatly improves handling.

Looking Luxurious Outside and In
Feb 4th, 2015 by admin

Ever look at the car next to you at the lights with envy? The chances are that you have, and the chances are that the person you’re staring at hasn’t spent a lot of money to make their car look that luxurious. Some simple modifications on the outside and in can make your car look like it came straight from a Bond film set.

On The Outside

luxury carStart with a simple body wax to get the best out of the colours already on your car. Then price up some alloy wheels as these will make your car shine in all weathers. Final touches include chrome sideplates instead of the traditional black plastic, under car lighting to create some interesting light and shadow patterns when you’re parked and a personalised number plate to make sure that your car is completely unique.

On The Inside

Making your car luxurious on the inside is all about chrome, leather and walnut. Change the covers on your seats for leather, black if possible for the ultimate luxurious look and feel. Then get a chrome steering wheel, or just the spokes if you can’t remove the original. Finally, replacing your dashboard covers with walnut will complete the look and have everyone staring with envy at your luxurious ride.

Restoring Used Cars – What Can You Do Yourself?
Dec 17th, 2014 by admin

Before you embark on an antique car restoration, you need some time to budget and shop so that you finally get good results. If you have to do solely, remember that most things on the to-do-list will not be that easy, and you need a meticulously thought-out plan.

Stock Taking – The first step would be checking every section of the vehicle thoroughly, taking notes of all the items needed and the work to be done. Check the skeleton, electrical system, the suspension, engine and exhaust as well as the interior.

Prepare a Working Schedule – restoring a used car is a big task, and you need a well-planned working plan. Make a reasonable short time working schedule, and ensure that you stick to your deadlines. Ensure that you start with what you know best as well as be systematic; don’t work on an area covering another part that will also be requiring some work.

Get Estimates – By now, you already have a stock of what you need and the work that needs to be done. You can turn to an expert to give you estimates of the amount of cash and time needed to complete the work. Additionally, you need to let a qualified person handle the tasks that you cannot tackle to perfection. This will be cheaper in terms of time and finances than having to redo a particular task over and again. While on it, try to get proposals from different suggestions, from which you can settle on the best deal.

Disassembling – disassembling might be necessary so that you can start working on the car from the frame. This lets you change every part that needs replacing. While you are doing the tearing down, you should be taking notes of the parts that need replacement as well as taking the photographs of the connections. This will enable you to keep a certain order in the reassembly so that the sections of the car will be as organized as before.

Scout for Help – Today, the internet has revolutionized information such that you do not have to worry in case you do not know any car guru. There are lots of web and blogs pages that provide information about any vehicle type and model, however vintage it may be.

Work towards Your Dream – As you start working on the restoration, always remember to be organised, persistent and collect as much information as possible. Don’t rush the process; rather, work at your pace. However hard it gets, hold yourself strong not to be frustrated.

The exact duration it will take to complete a car refurbishment does not really matter. Provided you will be working on the restoration project on your own, you need to reduce the expenses as much as you can. Ask friends to assist you, work on it during your free time, buy only what is necessary, and you will truly get the car you have been dreaming about for long.

What to Look for When Buying a Used Car
Nov 18th, 2014 by admin

Buying a used car is a risky investment. Whilst there are bargains, buying the wrong car can result in the vehicle becoming an endless sinkhole for money. Knowledge can be a great help, and buyers should know what to look for in a used car.

Previous history

The car may be a bargain at the price. It may look great and have lots of extras. However, if it’s been stolen or HPI is owed on the vehicle, it doesn’t belong to you, and the vehicle is liable to be seized. Furthermore, the vehicle may have been written off, meaning that its value may be dramatically overstated.

An HPI check costs £19.99, and this will give you a full history of the vehicle, also helping to highlight any mileage discrepancies.

Accidents

Check for dents and scrapes, but be aware that accident damage can be hidden under new panels or a re-spray. Check for mismatched paint indicating new panels, and check door catches for signs of new paint. Door and boot catches should engage and release easily, and panels should align correctly.

Overall condition

Check the engine for excess smoke or steam, as this can indicate heavy wear or a failed head gasket. Check coolant level and engine oil which should be close to the top mark on the dipstick. Tyres should have at least 1.6mm of tread across their width. Wear should be even on both sides, as excess wear can indicate a problem with the tracking or suspension.

The brake pads should have plenty of wear left in them, as should the discs. The suspension should return smoothly to its original position when the corners of the car are pressed down.

The condition of the car should be consistent with its mileage, so check for heavy wear on pedals and seats.

Finally take a look through the car’s service history to get an overall feel for its condition.

Essential Equipment for Restoring Used Cars
Oct 15th, 2014 by admin

Restoring used cars is a great hobby, as well as a great way to cut costs of car ownership. A skilled and experienced car restoration expert can get even the most battered and bruised old cars into top-shape with just a few months of effort.

Before you can get started with used car restoration, make sure that you have the right equipment:

1. An indoor car mover

One of the things you’ll learn when you start restoring cars is that you need to move the vehicle very often. This can be a massive challenge when you are working with a car without wheels or tyres (common during the repair and refurbishing phase).

An indoor car mover can make the car moving experience a whole lot easier. If you’re serious about car restoration, make sure that you have one of these in your garage.

2. A well-stocked tool box

There is a common saying in the car restoration community – “You are only as good as your tools”. Restoring a car obviously requires tons of different tools, from spanners and wrenches of different sizes to screwdrivers, clamps, and hammers. Since high-quality tools can be expensive, we recommend that you start off with a small tool kit and grow it gradually.

3. An air-compressor

An air-compressor is arguably the tool you will turn to most often during restoration. It powers everything from hammers to impact wrenches, and makes your job a whole lot easier. Processes that take hours by hand can be done in a jiffy by using an air-compressor.

4. A quality creeper

A “creeper” is a small stretcher-like platform with wheels used to go underneath cars. You will need this often when working on old cars. Pair it up with a sturdy jack to make the restoration process a bit more enjoyable (and easier).

5. Angle grinder and paint stripper

Both paint strippers and angle grinders are invaluable tools for doing car body work. The angle grinder can help with cutting and shaping metal, removing rust and buffing up car edges. A paint stripper is a must for scraping off old paint. Without these, your car restoration tool kit is incomplete.

Restoring a used car is a long, challenging process. With the right tools and equipment, you can make it a whole lot more enjoyable.

Buying a Used Car – Four Popular Car Brands
Oct 13th, 2014 by admin

When buying a used car, the most important thing to consider is reliability and long-term maintenance costs. You never know how the previous owner really drove to car. For this reason, it is best to stick to the tried and tested brands.

Some of the most popular brands for used cars are:

1. Volkswagen

The German auto giant has a reputation for producing sturdy, no-nonsense cars. Volkswagen cars also tend to hold up very well after years of strenuous use, making them the perfect choice for a used car buyer.

2. Hyundai

The South Korean automaker has come a long way from its once-shaky reputation. Hyundai’s cars not only look good (thanks to its much vaunted ‘fluidic’ design), they are also very light on the pocket. If you’re on a budget and need a reliable city car, you can’t go wrong with a Hyundai.

3. Ford

With its Fiesta line, Ford has proven that it can make reliable cars that can work well in almost any setting. If you want an all-rounder that can beat the city traffic and tame the country roads, look no further than a Ford.

4. Honda

The reliability of Honda cars is the stuff of legends. The Japanese auto major manufactures some of the world’s most beloved cars, including the always reliable CR-V and Civic.

Buying a used car can be difficult, but if you stick to the four brands given above, your used car purchase experience will be way smoother.

Buying a new car – what to think about?
Oct 10th, 2014 by admin

When looking for a new car, you should start making a wish list of all the things you want to save both time and money. Here are some new car buying tips that will help you make the right decision.

Set aside a budget

As new models are in high demand, most dealers are prepared to negotiate the price, but it does pay to shop around. Once you have determined your budget, ask for a written quote from several car dealers.

Read the small print

It is always advisable to read the fine print of the car’s warranties as different dealers offer different services.

Make sure new really is new

Just because vehicle dealers advertise cars in their auto centres, it does not always mean their vehicles are new. Check the year of the model as well as its mileage. If it has already done 5,000 miles or so on the clock, it is considered as second hand. You can get further tips on what to look out for when purchasing a new vehicle from this website.

Ownership costs

Consider all the related costs such as insurance, resale value, fuel economy before choosing your favourite model. If you require a car loan, compare different lenders online to get the best deal. There are also websites that contain useful information on car shopping just like this one.

Supply and demand

You should assess supply and demand on cars that are sold for discount prices. If it is a slow-selling model, you may not be able to re-sell it at a later stage. Popular cars tend to be more in demand and can retain their value.

Test drive before you buy

Once you have chosen the car you want, make sure you take it for a test drive. Think about whether you are more comfortable with an automatic or manual transmission and check the smoothness of the ride before signing on the dotted line.
