News out of Crewe is that three accomplished British racers will be helping Bentley return to its glory days in competitive motorsport. Guy Smith, Steven Kane and Andy Meyrick are set to drive the Continental GT3 during the Gulf 12 Hours at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi next month. The trio will pilot the Continental GT3 in two six-hour races in Bentley’s first track-action since winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2003. The Continental GT3′s first race appearance will be an exciting one and final preparations are now under way following the completion of initial development work with an endurance test. Car and drivers all performed strongly and, reflecting the nature of the Continental GT road car on which it is based, the car continues its testing form of being both fast and extremely reliable.
The Gulf 12 Hours will take place at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi on December 13th.
Jawbone has released the latest iteration of their UP line of activity-tracking wristbands. The Jawbone UP24 looks just like its predecessor but brings some enhanced features and a reworked app to match, making this fitness tracker worth checking out. The UP24 leverages Bluetooth Smart to sync data to the app in real-time, giving you feedback down to the second. This will be addicting for some, or should we say most. It tracks reading on your motion and sleep and you can add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward.
All data collected is brought to you via the UP app, which can send push notifications letting you know pretty much anything you want, even as simple as pinging you when you’re close to hitting a goal. The UP 3.0 app brings a massive upgrade and delivers a ton of new features. One thing that stands out is “Today I Will” which leverages all the data its tracking by sending you mini-goals to give you an added boost. You can also add to the UP experience by connecting to other apps within UP. That means you can track your weight or map your bike rides and have that data seamlessly integrate into your UP feed, lifeline and trends.
The Jawbone UP24 costs $149.99 and is available in three different sizes — small, medium, and large – and in either a black or orange shell.
Well, the temperature just dropped massively this week and it’s about time we all invest in some additional support for our feet. J.Crew’s just taken stock of a few different designs from CHUP that will keep you warm and add some subtle pop to your outfits. The Japanese sock brand uses an authentic stocking frame to create a durable, long lasting, and comfortable fit. The detailing is exceptional as the lengthy production process allows only 20-25 pairs to be crafted a day and each pair incorporates ethnic patterns and colors from all over the world. J.Crew currently carries four designs that will run through the holiday season.
