Matt Hummel’s love for vintage automobiles has led him to many interesting places, but no car has captured his imagination quite like his 1956 Porsche 356.
Living in the shadows of the larger and more widely known Mexican road race, La Carrera Panamericana, there exists another race held in Northern Mexico that boasts the same amount of speed stages for a fraction of the cost. This is the Chihuahua Express.
...and now I'm sort of sad, hahaha. Not everyone likes Alonso or Ferrari, but I'm a fan of both and really enjoyed the combination, so I'm sad to see him go.

Because it's fucking great. Safety-focused, as most of them have been...but extremely well-produced, great production value, tons of great footage, lots of great interviews.
Absolutely fantastic F1 documentary. Worth every second. The overhead views of the Tyrrell P34 are insane.
Repost for the morning crowd.
I remember the days when CART was the sh*t. You can tell it being the case, because it was a time when even the UK and Germany were building their own speedways to accomodate American open-wheel racing.
