On 28 March 2014, Spanish driver Carlos Sainz Jr. will drive an Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One car on the streets of Kuwait, which will be the first time a Formula One car has been driven on the country’s roads.

Sainz Jr. commented: “When I was told I would be doing the show run, I was very happy. Anything you do with Red Bull is a lot of fun and I knew I would enjoy it. It will be my first time in Kuwait and I have heard it’s a great place, so I can’t wait to get there. It’s also exciting as it’s my first Formula One Show Run and while I’ve done tests and filming, it will be a great experience to be able to drive the car in front of all the fans.”

The Red Bull Junior Team driver has plenty of racing experience behind him already but this is truly exceptional. “Most of all, being a racer I am thrilled to be driving an F1 car and especially the RB7. It is a world famous race car, one of the true greats. I have never driven it before, I drove the RB9 last year and I can’t wait to have a go in the RB7, it will be something very special.”

Carlos’s challenge for 2014 is to win the Formula Renault 3.5 championship and the 19-year-old from Madrid is certainly one to watch. During a limited FR3.5 campaign in 2013, Sainz impressed the FR3.5 paddock by topping the timesheets in free practice on his debut in Monaco. He had only been in the car a few times but ran a combative race to finish sixth.

In 2014 Sainz Jr. joins the DAMS team in the FR3.5 championship. The DAMS team has pedigree in FR3.5, having won both Team and Drivers’ Championships in 2013, making a star of Drivers’ Champion Kevin Magnussen, now racing in Formula One.

Fans will see the Infiniti Red Bull Racing World Champion Car on an 800-meter long urban track stretching from Bneid El Gar signal light to the Kuwait Towers. The car, which accelerates from 0-100km/h in 2.4 seconds, can reach speeds of 250km/h and above.

In addition to the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One Show Run, Kuwait will get a glimpse of Chris Pfeiffer, a four-time World Stunt Riding Champion and one of the best Stunt Riders in the world who will be pushing the limits with his new tricks. Red Bull Athlete Abdo Feghali will also entertain the spectators with his amazing drifts.

The hype for the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One Show Run will begin a few days before the main event, when the team’s car will be displayed and fired up around various locations in Kuwait, as well as other activities such as the Red Bull Pitstop Game. The event sponsored by Infiniti, Pirelli, Babtain Group and Sirbb Track is held under the organization of KMRC and will take place next to Kuwait Towers on March 28 at 2pm.

All expecting mothers are terrified of knowing that they might have a baby with down syndrome. Having a baby later on in your life increases the risk of this happening, but all it is really is in an extra chromosome.

It may make their life a little harder, especially since people are so mean, but they’re still human beings, and being a mom is scary regardless of how many chromosomes your child has. Thought I’d share this video with you, make sure you keep a tissue box close!

Anyone who regularly uses YouTube is sure to know who FouseyTube is. He usually posts funny videos of pranks or what not every week. But this weeks video was very different. It really depicts just how disgusting people really are. We’re so blessed to have a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs, yet it’s so easy for us to turn the other cheek when we see someone who needs us. Watch this video, and I honestly hope it opens up people’s eyes and gives everyone a new perspective to life.

Oh, and I am hopelessly in love with Yousef (FouseyTube).

Short and sweet post of the day-

I heard that Arwa (owned by The CocaCola Company) implants had been using sewage water in the water they’re selling? I know water treatment plants treat sewage and waste water till it’s safe to drink, but apparently there’s backlash as to how clean this water actually is? A friend of mine told me that all the water has been recalled and thrown up because it’s unsafe.

Has anyone heard about any of this? Is it true?
