The Formula 1 Grand Prix of Hungary took place this weekend and was arguably a rather non exciting race. It was pretty bland. Except for some parts! The big news was the heated battle between Hamilton and Verstappen. Vertsappen started in P1 and was able to hold first for nearly the entire race until the Silver Arrow decided to attack. Verstappen had lost most of his tire tread and ultimately could not compete with Hamilton. With about 5 laps to go, Hamilton overtook Verstappen and won the race. With Hamilton and Verstappen finishing in 1st and 2nd respectively, Vettel ended up taking 3rd. […]

Mercedes has yet anoth-… wait a minute… Mercedes only scored two whole points in Germany? What is this nonsense! They had their cars painted all pretty to celebrate motorsport and both Lewis and Bottas had their worst races of the season? Germany proved to be a very tough track not just for Mercedes but for all other teams. Ferrari had its difficulties but also had its wins as Vettel came back from 20th position to finish in 2nd while Leclerc started strong and ultimately did not finish. The strange bits of rain truly left for some insane driving and some insane maneuvers from drivers. Some of these maneuvers worked while others did not. A big win of the race was Red Bull Torro Rosso securing a podium finish with Kyvat, their first in over 3,900 days. There is so much that went on in this race, I cannot fit it all into one singular paragraph so attached is a video highlighting all of the madness that went down in Germany. […]

I’m not sure how else to introduce this than by saying it’s one of the coolest vehicles I’ve ever seen and I want one badly. What you see below is called a “SHERP” and I’m pretty sure I’ve shared a video of them in action before. But up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea where to get one, how to get one, or what I’d do if I did get one. Now, thanks to Matt Farah at Road & Track, I learned everything I ever wanted to know about the SHERP and found out one of the company’s few US distributors is up near Bemidji, MN as well as a several-hundred-acre test facility. Although I’m not in a position that affords me the ability to pay for a $120,000 offroad toy at the moment, I would love to get my hands on one someday. Heck, it’s only a 4-hour drive… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCScCEQsHsM […]

Yet another Grand Prix and still the same old bland racing style that is now associated with Formula 1. This past weekend, the teams ascended upon Silverstone in the UK and Mercedes decided that they would keep dominating as they do. Bottas took pole position at the start of the race with Lewis starting off in 2nd. Hamilton eventually won the race but a rather interesting crash happened before the end. A strong match between Vettel and Verstappen ensued and Vettel ended up rear ending Verstappen. […]

Everyone likes fast cars and everyone likes hill climbs. So what does one get when those two things are combined? Pikes Peak! At least, that is what a simpleton would say. A more classy and sophisticated lad would give you the answer of the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This past weekend, nearly every dream car imaginable was relentlessly thrashed up the hill at Goodwood leaving us with some amazing YouTube content. […]

Well, that was eventful. After a string of horrendously boring Formula 1 races, Austria finally decided to please all of us and deliver some true excitement. The best part; Lewis did not even podium, he ended in 5th, thus stopping his winning streak. Besides this amazing thought of Lewis not winning, the true battle came between Vertsappen and Leclerc in some of the last laps of the race. […]

Although this race does not have nearly as much glamour as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it is easily just as grueling if not even far more grueling than the French race. The race in question is the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, otherwise known as the Nurburgring 24. This past weekend, racing teams from all around the world pulled one intense all nighter in hopes of taking home a victory from this famed track. […]

Over this past weekend, the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans took place and most of us are rather disappointed we could not attend. This legendary race is a grueling form of auto racing and can only be performed by the best drivers and teams. It is rather amazing that these teams can keep these high end racecars in a suitable form for a full 24 hours of endurance racing. […]

F1 is in a decline. To some it may seem fine but to many, it is constantly tumbling downhill. Hamilton and Mercedes dominance is turning the sport into a monopoly that is boring and near unbearable to watch in full. The Canadian Grand Prix has not helped with this. After Vettel lost minor control and went into the grass, he re-entered the track, in the best manor that he could, half pushing Hamilton almost into the wall. After a few minutes, the incident was put under review and Vettel was given a 5 second penalty, causing him to lose the race and give Hamilton the win. Check out the incident here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqhX-ZzPhzo   Toyota has been rather sneaky these past few months. As the all new Supra starts to hit dealers soon, some people have been lucky enough to get theirs a little earlier than others. With the acclaimed 335hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, what is their not to love? Well apparently there is even more to love as Toyota has been rather relax with those power figures. After customers and journalists have put the Supra on a dyno, they have found that the car produces more power than Toyota has been claiming. The team found the Supra to be producing 332hp and 387lb-ft of torque to the wheels, not the crank like Toyota's numbers have been claiming. Read the full story here. Tuner Evo is a car show in short. But it generally is one that displays [...]
