You don’t get much higher stakes than Formula One. And while some teams have their own airplanes, there are a couple this season that have their own airlines: Richard Branson’s Virgin, and Tony Fernandes’ Lotus Racing and Air Asia.

As you may recall, the rivalry between the two tycoon-backed upstart teams escalated to such a point that Branson and Fernandes made a gentlemanly bet that was anything but: the owner of the team that fared worse in this year’s championship would have to cross-dress as a female flight attendant and serve as such on the other’s airline.

Well, Lotus edged out Virgin towards the bottom of the standings, so it’s Sir Richard who’ll be wearing Air Asia’s finest skirt and blouse. Fernandes is keen on placing his rival on a long-haul Kaula Lumpur-to-London flight, tickets for which he plans to auction off for charity. Looks like the negative effect of downforce isn’t the only kind of drag these guys will be dealing with in the offseason.

vision racer vr3
Race gar games just got a lot more real with the VisionRacer simulator. The VR3 is a gaming rig that consists of a fiberglass racing seat surrounded by a stainless steel frame. The pedal and gearshift mounts are set up just like those in a race car so that once your screen and gaming console are mounted, the driver’s seat illusion is complete. As long as the PS3 racing game works with a Logitech steering wheel and pedals, you can play it with the VR3 rig. The VisionRacer VR3 comes with the racing rig, gearshifter mount, and LCD and console stand. You supply your own Logitech steering wheel, gaming system (PlayStation 3 or computer), Hi-Def TV, sound system and video games. The VR3 is available for purchase on VisionRacer.com for $1,295.

50 Cent cash in Lamborghini
50 Cent loads his Murcielago down with cash – Click above to watch video after the jump

We’ve seen some pretty bizarre automotive trends on the web over the past few years, but this one, friends, takes the cake. Celebrities are suddenly no longer content to flash their wealth with expensive, ultra-rare cars. Nope. Now they have to stuff them with cash. Rapper 50 Cent is the latest to hop on this bandwagon by shoving stacks of cash into the nose of his Lamborghini Murcielago. We think that we can pretty fairly say that the hero of the film after the jump has successfully gotten rich without dying while trying.

Hit the jump to see for yourself.
