Check out Helio Castroneves in bright yellow zoot suit: The Penske Files blooper reel, Part 2

Leave a comment

Team Penske had so much fun producing its first bloopers/outtake reel last week that it came back with Part 2 in this week’s edition of The Penske Files.

While we like the first part of the second blooper “highlights” with Juan Pablo Montoya trying to figure out what shirt to wear, our favorite part is when Helio Castroneves comes busting in in a takeoff of Jim Carey’s dance number from “The Mask” (about 0:35 in the video).

And Helio even wears Carey’s fluorescent yellow zoot suit and hat. Trust us, it’s worth a look-see.

If there’s one thing we find disappointing, it’s that there weren’t even more bloopers.

Unless there’s a Part 3 bloopers/outtake reel in the works.

We can only hope.

In the meantime, check out Part 2 in the video below:

FIA returns Manor’s F1 entry fee for 2017

Good news: Manor Grand Prix Racing Limited got a refund of an entry fee it paid to the FIA to run in this year’s F1 season.

Bad news: Manor still hasn’t run this year, and won’t be for the foreseeable future (especially as Manor’s former leadership staff is moving that team into FIA WEC’s new-look LMP1 class in addition to its LMP2 program).

Manor Group’s receivership outfit, Just Racing Services Limited, went into administration earlier this year. As there was no new buyer for the F1 team, Manor dropped from the 2017 grid before the season.

The FIA said it would return its entry fee to help Manor Group pay off outstanding debts.

It basically means nothing in the grand scheme of things since Manor missed out on 10th place in the constructor’s standings in 2016 and fell from the F1 grid as a result, but hey, it’s a goodwill gesture going into Thanksgiving this week.
