Daddy, where do turbochargers come from?

How it's made features a turbo!

Upcoming Driving Experience

12/16 I'll be driving the Yas Marina Circuit in a 200 bhp Renault Clio RS. :D should be fun!

from Wikipedia
The Yas Marina Circuit is the venue for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The circuit was designed by Hermann Tilke, and is situated on Yas Island, about 30 minutes from the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi. Yas Marina is the second Formula One track in the Middle East, with the first being in Bahrain. A two day GP2 Asia Series test was held to officially open the circuit, which was held a week before the 2009 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. It also hosted the opening event for the Australian V8 Supercars series, the Yas V8 400, in February 2010.

Around the world in a couple weeks

Just left LA after working for a week. I'm now heading out to do some work in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Needless to say I'm a little nervous about going to one of these countries. They're pretty harsh on everything and I don't want to get in trouble for anything while there.

On a good note, I'll have a couple days off so I am definitely going to check out Ferrari World! I'm excited about that. It looks like its' going to be a lot of fun. I'll also be perusing the UAE Formula 1 track as much as possible.

Seems like Abu Dhabi is fairly involved in loads of international racing teams including WRC Ford and a couple of F1 teams I believe.
