VROOM! Peeeeeewww! VrmmmmMMMMM! VrmmmmMMMMM!

That’s all I’m hearing right now.

My company recently sent me to the Singapore F1 Grand Prix this week to be a receptionist/sales person at the Media Centre. It’s an invaluable addition to my resume, although the hours long and the work tedious. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be part of history in the making, as this is the first F1 night race in the world, and the first street race in a very long time.

I’ve never really been a fan of motorsports racing, but I do have some knowledge about it – thanks to the anime Capeta. Capeta tracks the life of a poor boy striving to make it big in the rich world of motorsports. Everything from the hardships of maintainence, to the hardships of driving round a track, and the hardships of transiting from go-karts to race cars is shown in great detail (next info here).

The drawing isn’t that great, and the story is very similar to Major (baseball manga from the early 90s). However, just like all sport animes,  you will learn a lot about the sport simply just by watching. So, I recommend Capeta to all those F1 fans, new F1 fans and girlfriends of F1 fans. It’s an interesting perspective on an interesting sport. If you are looking for a reputable car sales company, checkout cheap cars near me for more information.

And you’ll never know when you’ll be suddenly asked to work at the F1 circuit.
