McPherson-Ferrari

McPHERSON, KANSAS (May 9, 2022) – In a surprise ceremony last Friday, McPherson College received and unveiled a classic 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, a two-seat grand tourer, a gift from Dr. Richard Lundquist, LHD. A longtime supporter of the college’s auto restoration program, Lundquist’s gift marks the first Ferrari the college has ever received.

“I’m pleased to hand over the keys to one of my most prized possessions to the wonderful students and faculty at McPherson College,” said Lundquist. “It’s my hope that the car provides enhanced learning opportunities and can be restored by the students and eventually compete in prestigious events.”

For 46 years, McPherson College has been the only college in America developing the next generation of automotive restorers, with graduates securing positions with some of the top car collectors, museums, and restoration companies in the world. The program’s students study and work on historic

MIAMI, May 6 (Reuters) – Germany’s four-times world champion Sebastian Vettel says he does not expect to race in his homeland again before he retires from the sport.

The German Grand Prix has not been held since 2019 and the 34-year-old Aston Martin driver believes the trend in the sport towards new markets, paying higher fees, makes a swift return unlikely.

“I don’t know if Germany will make it in time for me,” Vettel, who is out of contract at the end of the season with his future uncertain, told reporters ahead of practice for Sunday’s Miami Grand Prix.

E-bike culture, trend ride into Warren County | Local

Eric Lendrum has heard the discussion over whether or not e-bikes should be allowed on the Warren County Bikeway.

Lendrum, co-owner of Rick’s Bike Shop in Queensbury with his brother Jared, sells Class 1 and Class 3 e-bikes.

A pilot program allowing Class 1 and Class 2 e-bikes on the Warren County Bikeway has been discussed by the Warren County Board of Supervisors, but Class 3 would be left out.

Class 1 e-bikes use a battery and electric motor to provide pedal assistance at speeds up to 20 mph.

Class 2 e-bikes work the same way as Class 1 e-bikes, but also have the ability to go at speeds up to 20 mph without the rider pedaling.
