Michael Schumacher Stuns In Motorcycle Race Debut
Formula 1 superstar Michael Schumacher bagged his first podium finish in a motorcycle race yesterday when he raced a Honda Fireblade to third place in the SKOOX Cup at the 4.5km Pannoniaring circuit in Hungary.

Clocking a fastest-race lap time of 2m 1.309 (2m flat in qualifying), Schumacher was third behind winner Martin Bauer and Andreas Meklau in the superstock-rules championship.

Schumacher was riding a bike usually campaigned by IDM champion Martin Farmer in the German championship, but according to race watchers was aggressive on track right from the start - earning him the incredible podium finish in a fraught race.

The World (in Dubai)
Possibly the most ambitious of Dubaiís land reclamation projects, The World is an archipelago of 300 islands laid out to represent countries of the world. The first developed island is owned by Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher. The $7 million piece of land was gifted to him by Dubaiís crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and is located in the Arctic (although Iím sure he would have preferred Germany). Thereís various rumours of who owns the other islands, including reports that Rod Stewart spent $33 million to buy mini-Britain.
