It appears that after being absent from the film landscape for a number of years, motorsports based movies are starting to make a comeback.  Paving the way was the excellent Formula 1 documentary Senna (2010), which was followed by Ron Howard’s hit biographical Formula 1 drama Rush (2013) and the Snake and Mongoose (2013), the story of...

    • Long Beach’s Grand Prix report is $150K worth of obvious points
      That report was made public Monday afternoon, and it’s loaded with an absence of surprises, although there are a few bits of weirdness involved. Rather than submit what KPMG said would be an ideal computer-aided design plan for the proposed F1 track that would identify all mandatory components required following FIA (the governing body of […]
    • Here’s who won the race between Formula 1 and IndyCar in Long Beach

      Over the past 20-something years writing about racing, I’ve encountered three people from whom I learn something about the art of racecar driving every time we speak for longer than five minutes.

Paul Conor Dana, at age 9, knows that his father was Paul Dana, a journalist and IndyCar driver who died in March 2006 during […]
