Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

2010 US Grand Prix? Maybe

Posted September 19, 2008 12:01 AM by dstrohl

We've heard continuing rumors of F1 returning to the US for a couple of years, and it's clear that the manufacturers, Honda in particular, are hot to race in their largest single market. Here on the East Coast, Watkins Glen gets mentioned, although Indy's Tony George has openly stated he'd love to have it return to the Brickyard, already host to MotoGP. But according to Keith Collantine, it'll be a coastal location, not the heartland.

We say: Tear down the condos and golf course, and bring it back to Bridgehampton, where it belongs. The US hasn't had an F1 race since the Great Tire Debacle of 2005.

I'd love to see F1 cars going round Laguna Seca.

"Infineon"

Is there a way to pronounce that?

No. First say, 'infinity.' Then substitute e-o-n for the i-t-y, but keep the vowel stresses the same.

–in·fin´·e·on

Answer comes from SFBay Area...Napa...Sears Point, where track is located.
