The Wall of Champions

[Montreal, Quebec, Canada]
Turn #12 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve: first of two narrow turns in the final chicane just before the Wall of Champions (in background).
Wall of Champions became famous after 1999 Canada F1 GP, when Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve ended their races on that wall.
The curbs of the depicted chicane were modified in 2005, by making them higher and less visible, what has further increased difficulty in those turns. Looking at the picture, those curbs look definitely more challenging that you might get impression after watching F1 GP in TV.

Fuel clock

[Los Angeles, California, USA]
Petersen Automotive Museum – LA must see for all moto maniacs.
They have very nice petrol pumps collection – sounds boring but actually it isn’t. One of the most interesting pumps looks like a wall clock. After a while you realize, that it is scaled not up to 12, but from 1 to 0 and the arrows indicate gallons and tenths.
Time is money – fuel is money.
