Jerusalem Formula Road Show

For two days the Jerusalem Formula 2014 Road Show

Formula 2014 181

shut down some Jerusalem, Israel streets.

 Naftali Bennett advised a group of visiting Vietnamese government officials,

if there are two Jews, there will be three opinions,

and for this event there certainly were different opinions.

The weather was warm and sky clear,

as the opening stretched an hour over scheduled time.

There is no special track in Israel for racing

and knowledge of race cars is limited,

Many do not know a Blu blue car

from another blue car.

But for the second year,

were out near the Old City to impressive.

The track was not a loop like last  year,

so it was easy at Tower of David

where cars turned around to take photos.

But I did get this car speeding up.

A big difference this year was that several young Israelis were featured:

More Israeli flags were out this year.

Terry Grant not only smoked up the street with his spinning Hot Rod,

but got out, walked away, and then got back in the moving vehicle,

all without wearing a helmet.

Do we need to shut down streets before a holiday

(a summer event had to be postponed)

or any time for this spectacle?

I heard an American tourist say,

“Seems to me to be a lot of money and noise for not so much.”

As we walked the long way around because of barriers on the track,

she added that she was 66 years old,

and does not think the same way she did when she was 16.

Young people were excited and came out to see the cars,

 thousands were out to see,

 what was happening on the Jerusalem, Israel streets.

Mayor Nir Barkat and Eugene Kaspersky think motorsport history has been made in Jerusalem

and that it is great and an investment for the future,,

but many others disagree.

Now enough with cars,

it is time to prepare for Sukkot,

but if you want to see more of that crazy motorcycle show,
