    Titling a custom built vehicle can be complicated and time consuming but not impossible. If the dream lingers check out
    http://www.dmv.org/nc-north-carolina...built-cars.php
    Follow some of the links and do some checking. Check out kit car magazines and websites. Some states are easier than others to register a Kit. Once registered the title may be transferable to your state. Insurance may be the real hurdle, but again not impossible.

    Superpole was a wet shortened affair this weekend.

    In both sessions Sykes and his Kawasaki dithered about the track for much of the session then put down a lap time that others were unable to match. Sykes takes, what is becoming his permanent spot this season, on the pole for Sunday's race at Magny Cour

    The Aprilia riders sorted themselves out behind Sykes taking P2-4 on the grid. The range of times and position on the starting grid appears more a matter of where they were in traffic on their closing laps in each session.

    Fabrizio turned in a solid performance for Honda. His familiarity with the bike growing and the wet track bringing speeds down to the Honda's range, the Italian posted repeated P1 times only to see his times eclipsed in the closing laps.

    The wet weather turned into Duc weather in France. Like his former teammate Fabrizio, the weather and track conditions worked in Badovini's favor; however he was not able to reach a potential front row showing like Fabrizio.

    Melandri piped Davies on the closing lap of SP2 to take the inside of row three. Davies had been the team leader prior to this consistently fighting for P3 through both sessions. While Davies was flirting with the front row Melandri spent SP1 flirting with elimination. As the flag fell he was in P11 and only advanced on the basis of his final flying lap.

    Suzuki saved BMW from being last in SP2 by not turning a flying lap. Both FIXI Crescent Suzuki bikes qualified for Superpole. Cluzel was unable to advance from SP1 and will start P12 while fill in rider Pillipe was able to advance but despite turning five laps in SP2 never put together a qualifying flying lap opting to pit before the flyer. No info on why as of this posting.

    Felipe Massa won't face any punishment from Ferrari after he chose to ignore a team order to allow team-mate Fernando Alonso to pass early on in the Japanese Grand Prix.
    FWIW: During lap 8 Massa received a radio message telling him it was time to 'change his strategy'. Massa would have had to pull over and park to allow a non challenging Alonso by. First pit stops looming pit management seemed the logical way to make the pass work with out putting the two drivers in danger with an on track pass. Clearly Massa ignored an order. He admits that. For my money Ferrari looked like heavy handed clowns handling this the way they did. How generous of them not to punish the soon to be unemployed Massa, who they have treated more than a bit shabbily since his accident that took him out of the hunt a couple seasons ago. Ferrari has a way of being ruthless and classless at the same time.

    Not all roses over at Red Bull.
