Liuzzi to drive the Gold Coast 600

Liuzzi to drive the Gold Coast 600
This weekends Gold Coast 600 is one of my favourite events because every team is required to enter at least 1 international driver. I was going through the driver list for this weekend and was shocked to see Tonio Liuzzi driving as Tony D'Alberto's co-driver. I can't believe that he could get out of his HRT commitments while there are still races left in the season.

The full list of drivers: http://www.goldcoast600.com.au/the-race/driver-partners

Has it been confirmed that Ricciardo would give his car back to Karthikeyan? Otherwise it could be that Narain and Ricciardo are driving in India, and thus Tonio has some free time.

Well Jarno could have taken a drive too, he won't be doing anything for a few weeks.
I see Marino Franchitti is racing, isn't he related to someone?

His older brother and cousin are slightly more successful than him.

I'm looking forward to watching this this weekend. I remember watching Montoya and Gil De Ferran tangle at the first corner back when it was a CART race.

I think it has, as I'm sure I read Ricciardo saying that him skipping the Indian GP was always part of the deal of him driving.

I don't think the Queen will be doing much for us while she's here, the PM didn't curtsey.

No curtsey, but she bowed, which I think is highly suspicious, especially given that hair cut. #manindrag

Just sayn.

Did you just call our Prime Minister a transvestite?

You may have concluded that, I wouldn't dare think such a thing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtsey

A curtsey (also spelled curtsy or courtesy) is a traditional gesture of greeting, in which a girl or woman bends her knees while bowing her head. It is the female equivalent of male bowing in Western cultures.

Those video links are blocked here in America as well. Sad But, our President will take care of it - He's glad to bow to foreign royalty.

The video is basically Villeneuve from the Gold Coast 600 last year starting from 3rd, getting sandwiched off the line and when he got the hairpin he spun and started driving head on into another car.

Thank you for that explanation. I can't find any other video link for it.

RE: Liuzzi to drive the Gold Coast 600
since when do touring car people have a problem with crashing? i thought that's why they watch touring cars instead of sports cars; for the gratuitous crashing.
