The smell of the fresh cut grass, the warm longer summer days, and my internal Bruin football alarm clock tells me that the newest UCLA football season is just around the corner. How and what will this newest version of Bruin football manifest into. What type of season will be realized.

In the words of Shirley MacLain from the academy award winning motion picture 'Terms of Endearment', "I'm not enjoying this. " An appropriate line she screams at Jack Nicholson, an aging Astronaut, who on their very first lunch date has one too many drinks. After lunch the two are driving as Nicholson sits on the top of the driver’s seat back rest while steering his convertible Corvette with his feet no less as he and his date speed down the shore line of an empty beach. In the scene he has employed MacLaine to press the gas from her passenger’s seat allowing him to navigate the vehicle while maintaining his perch above as he recreates, to some small extent, the excitement and sense of danger that was once...
Chinese-made cars haven't exactly been a rollicking success in Australia. Wind the clock back a decade and you might recount some of the more forgettable examples: Great Wall with its pick-a-part specials, Chery with its poor safety scorecard and most recently the born-again MG division, which has been reincarnated... But just when you thought it was time to write off the Chinese-made car altogether, an unlikely choice has emerged in the form of a robust commercial van. As background, the LDV brand falls under the same SAIC ownership model as MG, but there are some key distinctions in its build quality and parts. Measuring 3. 2 metres between the wheels and standing 1. 98 metres high, the G10 sits below the larger V80 in LDV's Australian line-up. There are soft, supportive seats with arm rests, a thoughtful driver position including decent outward vision and well-resolved ergonomics across the two-seat layout, including an arsenal of storage options. The theme of quality carries over to the driveline, where a twin-turbocharged 2. 0-litre petrol engine makes 165kW and 330Nm. The engine never feels languid or thrashy.
Chilled to a constant 16 degrees to keep the expensive electronics from overheating, the view is undeniably impressive - 10 full-motion Formula One car simulators, laid out in two imposing rows of five. Exact simulations of the 2014 Marussia F1 MR03 car, this array is almost R20 million worth of racing technology. Every F1 team has simulators, but Let's Race, based in Horley, Surrey, is the only full-motion simulator open to the public. Owned by Carlin, one of the UK's most successful race teams, it's an all-purpose venue offering big-screen F1 race screenings complemented by a bar, a giant slot-car circuit, pit stop-practice stations and reactions-testing Batak Wall. Visitors can choose from a selection of experiences, from the Premium Race Experience (15-minute qualifying, 30-minute race), Race Experience (15-minute qualifying, 15-minute race) and Practice/Lunchtime specials (a straight up 25-minute blast). The top notes are the simple combination of a racing game with a physical car, boasting three huge, panoramic screens coupled to a serious sound system. Simulator engineer James Dover explained the moving bed attached to the car: “It's a medical-grade motion bed - the same kind that's used in hospitals to trundle people into scanners - that's been blown up, supersized, if you like.
