A few weeks ago I threw out this idea about finishing up all the current Oppolock Fourza racing series with a big multi-race blowout on FM4. Finish up FM4 properly with some old Oppolock friends who have not gone to XBOne just yet. Afterwards, those of us with FM6 will keep up the tradition next year. »
Fellow Oppos if you have the Velocity channel on cable they have Winning playing this weekend. For you young ones Paul Newman was a man’s man, he lived a full life and enjoyed many passions besides his acting career. One of these was auto racing, which he developed into a full-blown career - really an addiction.
Also got a second place, that was nice too. It’s all downhill from here! It needs to rain at these races more often... »
For their fourth year running, third year in Wildwood specifically, the Oilers car club held their annual Race of Gentlemen event. Delayed by a full week due to hurricane Juaquin, the racing was pushed from the 3rd and 4th to the 10th and 11th of October, 2015. »
When Anthony Serra was ready to resurrect his racing career after a seven-year hiatus, he wasn’t going to skimp on a new chariot. No stranger to the podium, with a decade-long stint as a club and pro driver in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Serra could’ve called any number of tuners, builders or… »
Came across an box full of old pics while cleaning the garage over the weekend. Foubd a few of my grandpa running my 33 Ford Pickup around the time I was born, so rough date is around 1990-1993. I’m defiantly going to have to get the truck ready to race this next year now after finding these pics. »
This is what’s referred to as an “Aussie Pursuit” race. They use our times from the day before to figure out how long it should take you to run 25 laps and then handicap you at the start. »
First off, let me apologize for the wind noise, it was hot as hell, and my man in the drivers seat wanted to roll with the A/C off, so he put the windows down. You can still hear him talking about the insane downforce, how Willow is a 3rd/4th gear track, and you can hear me just kind of laughing about how insane the… »
“A tough young man like you is going to want a manual, right?” asked the Nissan salesman who sold me my first car 20 years ago. I shook my head timidly and purchased an automatic Sentra at $500 a month for six years. I can’t help thinking I’d have gotten a better deal had I said yes. »
Enduro Season. If you utter this phrase to most motorsport fans, they’ll have no idea what you’re talking about. However, say it in the presence of the devout V8 Supercars fans, and their ears will perk up.
This past Saturday I got the chance to spend some time at Lime Rock Park and catch the annual historic races. I was only able to spend a day up there, so I missed the parade through town on Thursday, practice on Friday, and the concourse on Sunday. Most of the photos are from the races. Enjoy! (All photos are my own) »
If you happen to be browsing your Netflix account for something to watch I would like to direct you to the 2014 documentary about racing driver Gonzalo Rodriguez. The movie follows his early racing career, from karting in his native Uruguay to the tragic practice session in the CART series at Laguna Seca. While some… »
Super Hatches Fourza race will be at Bernese Alps on the Festival Circuit this Friday at 8 PM EDT. »
These days, it seems that F1 is raced exclusively by genetically engineered, corporately sponsored, superhumans. Look at Lewis Hamilton and tell me he wasn’t designed in a lab in some sub-basement of McLaren. All of the top tier boys got a Nomex onesie before they could walk, and their stroller had a HANS device. The… »
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. »
