Drop the phone right now. Flip that camera back to its external-facing view. No selfie will ever top this one of racing drivers Tom O’Gorman and Shea Holbrook from Sebring Raceway.
Today’s inspiration: a Volvo 242 running last year’s Salpausselkä Ralli in Finland that refuses to crash, no matter the odds, no matter its mistakes.
When his F1 ride didn’t offer enough excitement, racer Derek Daly apparently drove today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe BMW Z3. Now you can too, that is, if its price makes it to your starting grid.
The World Rally Championship race Rally Mexico produced one of the most incredible rally endings in years after Kris Meeke got lost in a parking lot on the last stage. But Rally Mexico happened among financial peril this year, per Motorsport.com, due to rising costs in the wake of Donald Trump’s election combined with…
If there’s a drift version of running the gauntlet, this is it. Two close barriers. Plenty of curves. No room for error. Another car out there with you. Let’s drift.
There were some hopes that a privateer would pick up Audi’s R18 Le Mans prototype program where Audi left off, but that won’t be happening now. Team Penske owner Roger Penske asked Audi about running the R18 at Le Mans, but Audi won’t let be letting him or anyone else do it.
Facebook founder and presidential hopeful Mark Zuckerberg just did a few laps with Dale Earnhardt Jr. in Charlotte. It looked like Zuck came thisclose to shitting his pants! But he says he had fun after the fast part was over.
Clearly, pink isn’t Renault Formula One driver Nico Hülkenberg’s favorite color, which I can empathize with. Either way, I’m not sure anyone who’s stuck wearing Renault’s odd yellow-pants race suits for the year can really say much about another team’s livery. Seriously, man, what are those?
One mountain, no practice and no do-overs: that’s how three-time Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg tackled California’s gorgeous, winding Onion Valley road in a V8-powered Nissan 370Z.
Candymaker Mars, Inc., a #brand that serves as the primary sponsor for Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Cup car, voiced their displeasure with Busch for starting a fight at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. That’s rich, because they’ve never remarked on any first grader who’s ever been elbowed in the stomach over a pack of Skittles.
Who are those cars at the back of the Formula One grid, and what’s their deal? Sniff Petrol—the nom de plume of former Top Gear and current The Grand Tour script editor Richard Porter—has a new book out explaining everything you’d need to know about the upcoming 2017 season, mocked for your enjoyment.
On the last stage of Rally Mexico, Citroën driver Kris Meeke plowed right off the stage road and into a parking lot. It looked like something straight out of Forza Horizon, yet he went on to win the rally anyway. That detour produced some of the most incredible in-car audio of the year, especially from Meeke’s shocked…
NASCAR recently proposed turning down the volume on the cars to let people talk to each other, but there are better ways to do this without killing off part of the experience. I’m talking about the magical invention known as a headset, and NASCAR should rent them out to chatty fans instead of messing with the noise…
Today’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway saved all the action for its last lap and of course, after the race. After Joey Logano got loose on the last lap and collided with Kyle Busch, Busch was sent sliding into pit lane. So, Busch went to go “chat” (and by chat, I mean fight) with Logano after the race.
World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke said he “got caught out by a bump” less than a kilometer away from the end of the final stage of Rally Mexico. I’d say that’s an understatement. Meeke went flying off into a parking lot next to the stage road and unbelievably still won the rally.
Poor Takuma Sato had one oops after the other during a stop during today’s IndyCar Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Cue “Yakety Sax” and hit play.
If there’s been a consistent theme with Brembo brakes on single-seaters this year, it’s been “not good.” During today’s Verizon IndyCar Series season opener, Spencer Pigot’s brakes exploded on lap 26. When brake problems appeared in testing, caliper supplier Brembo pointed the finger right back at IndyCar. What on…
Oh, bless your hearts. At turn three of the first lap of today’s season-opening IndyCar Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Charlie Kimball went for a gap that soon disappeared between Graham Rahal and the wall. It didn’t work out.
