Getalookatthis doesn’t normally do stories like this one, not that we don’t love tennis, we do, not that we don’t admire Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer’s awesome abilities, we do, we just don’t normally do sports news, but then again this is not your normal Tennis Grand Slam Final, not your usual sports news story, sure 5, 6, 8 years ago Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal would have both worked their way through each side of a grand slam draw and ultimately, more often than not meet in the semi final or final, however time and injury have caught up with both players, especially 2016, which led to long injury lay offs for both players. Federer and Nadal seemed to have have come to Melbourne Park this year with little to lose, that attitude coupled with an ever increasing return to some vintage form has seen them both progress through to the final. So I for one, am going to sit back on Sunday Night Australian Time and watch an Australian Open Tennis Final for the ages.
Ari Vatanen Pikes Peak Climb 1988 Incredible Driving Skills
Ari Vatanen at Pikes Peak Hill Climb 1988 in a Peugeot 405 T16, Still one of the greatest ever displays of driving skill
Behind the wheel of a Peugeot 405 T16 at Pikes Peak Hill in 1988 Ari Vatanen produced one of the most incredible displays of driving skill that you would ever wish to see. The Pikes peak road back then was all gravel, so the annual hill climb speed test was a totally different kettle of fish, not to mention the fact that the mountain has incredibly steep drop offs at a number of locations and watching him operating the steering wheel with one hand at times as he uses his other to shield his eyes from the sun whilst maintaining incredible composure, I still marvel at this driving display many years after seeing it and multiple times.
