Tonight 6/14 on Speed Channel 8:00PM

Former F1 champ Louis Hamilton gets to drive Tony Stuart's NASCAR Cup car on the long course at the Glen.

Tony Stuart gets to drive Hamilton's F1 car.

Should be lot's of fun to watch.

I don't expect any track records to be broken.


I hope Tony takes Hamilton to the Seneca Lodge Bar for the true Watkins Glen experience.

Tony and Lewis put on a nice demonstration for the crowd and viewers.

I was pleasantly surprised when Lewis thought that the track was great. Anybody who has ever driven the Glen already knew that.

The commentators are right when that say F1 should run at the Glen. I may not be a fan of F1 but if your going to run here you might as well run on Americas best road course.

Hamilton comes off as a genuine nice guy racer, I like him . He comes off a lot better than the pompous ass that was the F1 champ a few years back.

I liked Kimi too. I'd never consider him a pompous ass. I'd say the same about Button and Vettel.
Alonso maybe? He can have an attitude.

Btw, I watched this the other night and thought the announcers comparision of the two cars was funny. They said comparing a NASCAR to a F1 car going around Watkins Glen would be about the same as comparing a minivan to a Corvette.

No NASCAR fan ever said the cars were great but Hamilton did say the Cup car handled very good considering it weighs three times the F1 car.

I don't think anybody was surprised how fast Tony was after all F1 is all about the cars.

I am suprised Tony Stewart could fit into the F1 car

This was more fun for Stewart. I bet all racing drivers want to drive a F1 car.

Hamilton is a pretty decent guy but he is whining too much.

We get it. You don't understand F1, so just drop it.
