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 [...]

Old, crusty Jeeps are cool. Old, race-prepped motorcycles are cool. Using an old 52-yr old Jeep Commando to tow your 25-yr old Ducati M900 to the race track is off-the-charts awesome. Alex Earle is the owner of both this nicely patinaed Jeep Commando as well as this customized Ducati, and despite the vast differences between both machines, they also compliment each other perfectly. Built out of simplistic functionality, both vehicles provide joy to Alex, and isn’t that what it’s all about? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkuwSvos4Sw […]

If you’re not familiar with Boyd Jaynes and Brian Godfrey, all you need to know is that they’re probably cooler than you are. What makes them so cool? Well, for starters, they race a 1968 Ford Bronco that has racked up 7 class wins in the NORRA Mexican 1000 race. After almost 10,000 offroad race miles on the same 351 Cleveland V8, Boyd and Brian just prepped the Bronco with a fresh 347 CID crate motor directly from Ford, which puts out a healthy and reliable 360 hp. Because you want reliable power when you’re driving through desolate and treacherous terrain. These NORRA races offer a serious course and serious competition but Boyd and Brian are not your typical stone-faced racers. Sure, they work hard to prep their Bronco for the race but they also grow out mustaches for the race weekend and their fire suits were custom-made to resemble mariachi band outfits. It’s great to see serious competitors that don’t take themselves too seriously. To learn more about Boyd and Brian and their rad ’68 Bronco, head over to Silodrome. […]

It’s rare to see a Bentley driven on anything other than perfect pavement or occasionally across a perfectly manicured lawn. This Bentley is something special though. It trades its four wheels for a pair of tracks that lift it well off the ground while also giving it the ability to traverse any terrain imaginable with ease. The 550+ HP twin-turbo W12 engine under the hood has no problem transferring that power to the ground either. Leave it to the Russians to try something this oddball with a Bentley, but I’ve got to say, it’s pretty darn cool if you’ve got more money than sense. Make sure to turn on subtitles when you watch the video below, and click the link to see more info about this ridiculously over-the-top Bentley on Road & Track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=201&v=taLvoVXFDmM […]
