But how, you may be asking, do we bring back fast, attractive, competitive sports cars in a modern age of aerodynamically driven racing design and engineering? The answer is so simple, I’m surprised no one’s mentioned it.
Toyotas through the years.
Best Christmas present ever.
I am on Forza 6 and going to practice and tune my GT car for the Petit LeMans this weekend if anyone wants to join me.
DTM’s recent struggles in keeping its manufacturers in line have caused sparking frictions among participants and launched the series into - potentially another golden era. What does DTM have up in its sleeves?
Don’t know how to start your Saturday night? How about some looping vintage racing footage with contemporary chill music? Sounds good enough?
Mercedes-AMG made a 4.0 liter, relatively small displacement V8 with greater efficiency and, if Chris Harris is to be believed, (see 11:35)
I am passionate about 2 things. Cars and wristwatches. There have been many watches in the last few years that give us the look and feel of automotive racing but few are able to offer what the new Christopher Ward C9 GT40 wristwatch can.
Filming was rumored to begin in 2014 with a release date sometime in 2015. There has been zero news since the rumored casting of Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Anyone know what’s going on with this film?
Inspired by a post I made years back on one of many previously-aborted blogs about the obscure-as-hell F1 Challenge for the Saturn, I’ve decided that what I really should be writing about is old racing games. I thought I had deleted that blog, but apparently not, meaning it will forever live on as a slightly…
Words are fun. Some of the most entertaining are nouns that get turned into verbs, like when party became partying. Hey! let’s go party! Or in a meeting, some nerd says, “We need to work on our messaging.” Ford’s decided to get in on the actions with Light-weighting.
Welcome to my photo album of this weekend’s TUDOR United Sports Car Championship race at Watkins Glen International for the Sahlen’s 6 Hours of the Glen. I’m going to start off by saying this was my first proper sports car race, and I got to feel like I was 8 years old again (I probably acted that way too), even…
Shh... just watch and listen.
With LeMans just passed, I figured it was a good time to share the story of two-time winner Jean-Pierre Wimille, an all around badass dude from an era of macho badassery.
Some of you sent me replays, but I can’t download them for some reason and I don’t have my own since I got kicked out (Verizon still sucks, still not over it). If you have a replay saved, take photos, put them on the storefront, get them off the Forza website, and comment them to me on one of my posts. I would like to…
Wow. Le Mans is a special event. I’ve been to Spa, the Nurburgring and Silverstone for their respective 24hrs, but none of them come close to this in terms of a spectacle. I would implore anyone reading, if you can get there, go. 2016 dates are already announced and its such a special event it is well worth any amount…
Le Mans has an open pitlane during the day for the tuesday, wednesday and thursday as all the track action takes place from 4pm onwards on these days. So I took the opportunity to wander around with my camera. Also some bonus shots from the interesting spots from the campsites.
The Classic British Welcome is a long standing tradition during the Le Mans week. On the friday, at a small village north of the city (St. Saturnin) around 1000 cars take over a village hall site, making it one of the biggest car shows on during the week. I headed over early friday morning and stayed till around 1,…
Sitting through the world’s greatest race, this is how I saw the race, catching the funny side of the events. Two serious posts are in the pipe line, including an interview with an expert. Until then, selected tweets.
