Posted by Grassroots Motorsports, this is pretty fantastic work.
The small details of this music video featuring a recreation of the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans with slot cars are staggering. There's Porsche's "psychedelic" 917LH of Martini Racing. Is that a miniature Sam Posey starting that Ferrari 512S? Or is it Nino Vaccarella? (Ok, so the numbers don't match.) Still, it's an…
“Free” in this case is indeed relative to time and place, however I propose that being a automotive enthusiast is as inexpensive as $.55. That is roughly how much some car magazines charge per issue if you subscribe — it’s probably less these days. It may also be $.98 or whatever the going rate of a Hot Wheels car is…

Ran the car again at a SFR event on saturday. Way better this time, worked on cutting distance and being a bit smoother on my throttle control. Still have to work on being smoother, but overall I feel like I am starting to get a handle on this car. I had our local mustang/cobra hotshoe(and i believe Nationals champ)…

Björn Annwall has been appointed as the new head of Marketing, Sales and Services of Volvo Cars, replacing Alain Visser, who has moved to marketing and sales for Geely. If you may remember, Alain Visser was the spearhead of the infamous decision last December that Volvo would pull out of motorsports. At the time, he…
I had the privilege to, for likely the only time in my life, communicate with triple world champion Sir Jackie Stewart. Few men, if any, have been greater or more effective advocates for safety in Formula 1. Being a transportation safety professional, I was eager to ask him about F1's current safety programs. I…
So, although I’ve drag raced many times, I’ve never driven on a road course. I had also never dreamed about passing an Aventador at a track either.
Yesterday’s Moto3 Dutch Grand Prix featured an unreal save by rider Niklas Ajo, as the Finn kept his KTM upright despite being tossed wildly off the track—and then crossed the finish line without actually being on the bike. This seems physically impossible:
Okay, so I’m not allowed to post on Black Flag(been blocked), but I’d like to show everyone what I’d use as an example of the “Most 1990’s Racecar” as referenced here in this post.
History repeats itself. Yesterday, there was a completely preventable death on a racetrack. The fatal crash was the result of a series of mistakes and bad decisions that compounded into tragedy.
I thought I’d share some of the pictures I took when I visited Canepa Design last summer. They have some really nice cars, but I only had a cell phone camera so I apologize in advance that the pictures aren’t the best. I messed around on lightroom on them so... enjoy.
Fabio Costa and Carlos Neto were, without a doubt, one of the highlights of last weekend's Rally in the 100 Acre Wood. These guys were flying on every corner at every spectator point.
The 2015 Rally in the 100 Acre Wood (100AW) lived up to the hype. Ice and heavy snow made conditions tricky during the two-day event. Here's how it all went down.
I'm working up an article and I might as well crowd source some fact checking here so I don't miss anything — what was the most successful individual chassis in 24 hours of le mans history?
Last Saturday I went to the Show-Me Rally, a regional Rally America event held in Potosi, Missouri, and took a whole bunch of photos. Here are some of my favorites:
