While seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher remains in critical condition in a Grenoble, France, hospital, where he is being treated for a brain injury suffered while skiing, it was announced that one of his most famous race cars will go across the auction block later this month.
Ferrari chassis No. 183, a 1998 F300 Formula One race car, is part of the Salon Collection of high-end cars at the 43rd annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector-Car Auction. The FOX family of channels will have 36 hours of live television coverage from the event on Jan. 14-19.
Feld Motor Sports and FOX Sports unveiled the newest addition to Monster Jam on Thursday, a 10,000-pound brute of a Monster Jam truck inspired by Cleatus, FOX Sports’ iconic robot, that makes its Monster Jam debut this Saturday, Jan. 4, at Houston’s Reliant Stadium.
Fresh off the football field, Cleatus powers his way into the Monster Jam lineup, flying the colors of FOX Sports 1, America’s new sports network and new home to Monster Jam television programming. On football Sundays, the NFL on FOX’s signature animated robot struts across the television screen, performing moves that leave even the most experienced athletes in awe. During Monster Jam season, however, Cleatus will bring his moves to the dirt, barreling into stadiums and arenas with that all-too-familiar gusto sports fans have come to love and cheer.
