I went to Philadelphia on Saturday, and it was really hot. But, apparently, so were the cars.
America’s big hope in Formula One wins America’s greatest spectacle in racing on his first attempt, for America? Yeah, there’s going to be a party. Something tells me there was going to be a party regardless of the outcome with the Indianapolis 500's sold-out crowd, anyway.
This short film had me spitting out my coffee this morning. Voltige is a short film by third year Motion Picture in Arles student Léo Brunel in France. It’s quick, simple and hilarious.
Exotic-car ownership, like anything super exclusive, becomes easier to reach by the everyday man over time. While this may put those once-unreachable goals within your comfort zone, it also makes supercars like this manual Ferrari 348 available to any negligent and tasteless owner with the cash to afford the sizable…
Manor Formula One reserve driver and Indianapolis 500 rookie Alexander Rossi appeared to coast through the finish running on what had to be leftover gas fumes to win today’s 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.
When you’re driving 200 mph, there’s not much time to react to a crash, especially when that crash happens only a few feet ahead of you. Just ask Conor Daly at this year’s Indy 500, who spun himself into a wall trying to avoid a crashed Mikhail Aleshin.
We already know how complicated Formula One steering wheels can be, but are the reins of an IndyCar any simpler? What do all of those buttons do? Here’s a breakdown.
Today’s Indianapolis 500 is full of unlikely mistakes from experienced hotshoes, and that’s exactly how to describe this bizarre pit lane collision between Townsend Bell, Helio Castroneves and Ryan Hunter-Reay. Seriously, what are they doing in pit lane today?
The Indiana Pacers—it’s a sporty enough name, and it fits well for a basketball team. Without outside knowledge or a strange knack for putting two and two together, there wouldn’t be any reason to question it. But, as far removed as the two sports are, the Pacers actually got their name from the Indianapolis 500.
Sage Karam, one of several one-off entries hoping to impress his way into more IndyCar drives during today’s Indianapolis 500, is out of the race after smacking into the wall outside Turn 1.
As has probably been drilled into your mind more than you care to remember, Top Gear premieres today in the UK. American viewers—except those, of course, who plan to watch by other means—will have to wait until tomorrow to see the show. Regardless, we’ve got you covered on how to watch and what to expect.
Juan Pablo Montoya will have his worst-ever finish at the Indy 500, and his first finish outside the top five today. He’s officially out of the race after a spin sent him into the wall outside Turn 2.
Volvo; for the rugged, fit truck driver that models on the side.
IndyCar’s Will Power got sent to the back of the field for an unsafe release into the path of Tony Kanaan during today’s Indianapolis 500. From the onboard video, it just kind of looks like the driving of a sleepy grandma puttering outside her lane as sleepy grandmas do.
The 100th Indianapolis 500 only attracted 33 cars—enough to fill the grid, but not enough to have entries bumped from the grid during qualifying. Despite the milestone year, teams are still very conservative with who they’ll put in a car. Here’s why just making the grid was so hard this time.
Context is everything in sports, particularly in 24-hour endurance racing where pit stops and timing rules can impact the outcome. You don’t really need any of that here. Just watch and enjoy.
As surprising as it is, Lewis Hamilton’s Monaco Grand Prix win on Sunday was his first in Formula One since clinching the 2015 title at Circuit of The Americas in October. But that wasn’t the main story to come out of the race—rather, it was Red Bull Racing’s royal pit-stop screw up with pole sitter Daniel Ricciardo.
It’s one of the biggest days in motorsports each year, and the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 will roll off in just a few hours. It’s not hard to sense the excitement surrounding the whole spectacle, and we’ve got a few folks out there to bring it all to you—from a whole lot closer than your TV will probably…
On Thursday, IndyCar driver Josef Newgarden donned some make-up and a Kentucky Derby-worthy suit and hat to participate in a media question and answer session. It wasn’t to answer questions for the first half, though. It was to pretend to be a member of the media. Newgarden had me fooled, too.
