Dodge seems determined to make the SRT Demon a car that’s a bunch of balls-out firsts and mosts and biggests and fastests. Dodge just released a press release that goes over all these superlatives, and also drops a pretty big bomb: it’s been banned by the NHRA.
I’m excited to see Fernando Alonso running this year’s Indianapolis 500, but there’s far worse news hidden behind that awesome announcement. There’s no way McLaren would let two-time F1 world champion Alonso out of the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix if they thought they had a snowball’s chance in Hell with this year’s…
There’s just something about watching a trophy truck in action that just makes you want to run over everything. Curbs. Trees. Fire. Jumps. Stairs. Seriously, everything. Here’s BJ Baldwin going wherever he pleases because he can through the streets of Havana, Cuba, in Recoil 4.
Yesterday we learned the BMW Car Club of America’s Genesee Valley Chapter banned newer cars with certain collision avoidance features from participating in their track events, sending the internet’s track day-going communities into a fiery debate. However, the group has now lifted that ban, saying that the issue…
The perpetually sad car beard man and two-time Formula One champion Fernando Alonso will go from running the saddest car in F1 to competing in the most under-appreciated race in motorsports, the Indy 500.
First there was the Audi R8 Le Mans prototype. It was one of the most successful cars of its kind, and it was good. Then came the road-going R8 sports car, which was also good. Then the R8 sports car went racing in its own right, cementing Audi’s quest to dominate everything with something called an “R8.”
NASCAR may finally give its teams a choice in tires next year, reports Fox Sports. This year’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway will allow teams to test out the two compounds and see if they like having the choice. If it’s a hit, expect to see these two options return in 2018.
As much as we love to discuss high horsepower figures, brakes are just as important when it comes to driving a fast car quickly. And if you need any reminders, this video of a Ferrari 488 GTB at Portugal’s Estoril should help you out.
Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives used a secret off-the-books bank account to buy a $21,000 NASCAR suite at Bristol Motor Speedway and a trip to Las Vegas, among other things, reports the Washington Post. Sadly, it wasn’t to investigate on-track fistfights, or anything else for that…
Many new cars offer some kind of collision avoidance technologies like lane-keeping assists and automatic emergency braking as major safety features. In other words, the cars act to avoid a crash faster than a driver can automatically. But what happens if they kick in on a race track? That fear has driven several…
Formula One is approaching its self-imposed deadline to make the halo cockpit sorta-protection system viable for 2018, but wait! F1 has another idea! I’m sure much waffling will be done over it as the cockpit remains as-is, with nothing protecting a driver from getting hit in the helmet.
The VW Bus is a timeless staple of off-road racing in Mexico. It’s– wait, what? Bus? No, that can’t be right. Oh. Oh mercy. It’s a bus alright. Looks like, 50 years after its first run, the Mexican 1000 is still the best place for lunatics to become legends.
Photographers at motorsports events often seem to take a perverse delight from placing themselves in what looks like eminent car-induced peril. We’ve seen photographers hit by cars, seen them leap out of the way at he last minute, seen near scrapes, but this is the first time I think I’ve ever seen a car slap a…
There are few things I enjoy more than seeing strange things on a race track. Fortunately, there’s a new compilation of some of the most delightful oddities spotted on the Nürburgring’s infamous Nordschleife course, including trucks, the European version of the A-Team van, and even a car with a little car on top.
Bernie Ecclestone, the one-time troll-king of Formula One who’s been relegated to an “emeritus” role within the sport where he can’t do much, is expected to put a bid in to purchase Brazil’s beloved Interlagos F1 circuit, reports Motorsport.com. The city of São Paulo plans to sell the track amid a national financial…
We’re fans of Formula One’s long-awaited introduction to the modern internet as the rest of us know it. F1 is now using its vast back catalogue of clips and race footage for good by putting many more recent bits up on YouTube, with a big push of famous moments from a certain grand prix during its race weekend.
Will Power was the epitome of “‘tis just a flesh wound” after a first-lap crash with Charlie Kimball sent him into the wall at Sunday’s IndyCar race in Long Beach. Instead of letting recovery workers pull him out for a tow, he asked them to take his damaged front wing completely off so he could keep going.
The freshly repaved Texas Motor Speedway is a little slippery thus far, but man, does it look sharp. What’s more noticeable than usual, however, are the freshly painted, bright-white lines against the dark new asphalt. It begs the question: why are they there?
We interrupt your Long Beach Grand Prix programming—ha, just kidding, the Pirelli World Challenge race wasn’t on live—to bring you this exploded fire hydrant in the middle of the Long Beach streets.
In about as awkward of a fashion as going on a second date and spitting out the name of a recent ex, the Mercedes Formula One team accidentally called its new driver “Nico” over the radio in the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday. Come on, Mercedes. Write his name on your palms if you have to.
