With a 32-point lead coming into Petit Le Mans, all Christina Nielsen needed to do was meet her minimum drive time at the Petit season ender today to become the first woman to win a major present-day North American endurance championship. All we have to say is: it’s about time, and it couldn’t happen to a better…
Uh-oh. This may take a while.
The No. 55 Mazda Prototype conked out not once, but twice in front of the marshal bears decorating the fence at Petit Le Mans. Look, guys. Once is a goof, twice is a pattern. Bears are hungry. At Road Atlanta, they’re hungry for cars. Please remember not to feed the bears.
New California draft regulations released on Friday would allow approved self-driving cars to drive on state roads without a human in the car. The drafts also include rules about not advertising semi-autonomous cars as “self-driving” or “autonomous,” because we all know that nonsense needs to be reeled in.
A Mustang did that thing Mustangs do again. After spinning and endangering a large crowd that thankfully knew to run away at the sight of a Mustang leaving Cars and Coffee, the driver emerged from the vehicle, waving either to let said crowd know he was OK or to acknowledge that he is, in fact, that guy.
What do you do when you’ve got a lot of state pride and a lot of race track? You drive around that race track waving the glory of the red, white and blue—the Lone Star one, of course. Everything is bigger in Texas, y’all.
The ramifications of Volkswagen’s diesel cheating scandal have been wide-ranging. On Friday, three months after a $14.7 billion settlement with U.S. regulators, the automaker confirmed it will settle with its U.S. car dealers as well to the tune of $1.21 billion, and that settlement provides further evidence of the…
A Mustang driver at the Sports Car Club of America Runoffs went full Cars and Coffee with one of the most egregious revenge-seeking moves I’ve seen in ages. Never go full Cars and Coffee. Never, ever go full Cars and Coffee.
Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what’s going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and where you can talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?
If you’re like me and have thoroughly enjoyed at least one of the soon-to-be five movies in the Transformers franchise, you probably know that all of the gritty explosion-ness and car flipping is mostly done for real, just minus the giant robots. But how do they convincingly get all those cars to flip?
Grab yourself a bear claw and a blue cocktail, preferably served in a goldfish bowl. Sure, we had a feeling this was coming—PHRASING—but FX’s animated spy comedy Archer will end after its 10th season. We’ll still be getting three more seasons, but they will only run eight episodes each.
Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, in response to a question from Roadshow, claimed that sports cars are still important despite sinking sales because “they are a testimony of technology and of the brand.” It’s a nice sentiment, but it rings hollow considering Nissan’s current lineup of outdated sports cars and…
The Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge held its final race of 2016 today at Road Atlanta, finally deciding a close-fought season championship. The two race winners turned out to be the season champions themselves and came together at the end to smoke some tires.
Many of us are quite excited about the new Honda Civic Type R: the latest incarnation of the unhinged, raw id of the Civic. There have been Civic Type Rs for 20 years now, and watching how they’ve developed gives a pretty remarkable look at how car designed has evolved. I’m not exactly sure where it’s going, but it’s…
Notorious late man and former President Bill Clinton won’t be hurried by a waiting Air Force One or even the commands of the Commander In Chief of the United States.
We learned today that GM is not only going to keep Buick alive, but it’s going to create a new sub-trim/sub-brand lineup based on the Avenir concept it decided not to make, despite our desperate claims. So let’s “rap” about it.
Fear of screwing up in front of a very large group of people is a fear that rules most. It must skyrocket during large public displays, like at the Wonsan Air Festival in North Korea earlier this month. Especially if you land your MiG-21 clumsily in front of a group of spectators. And you live in North Korea.
Forza Horizon 3 has us pretty fired up over photorealistic graphics and its extensive list of cars. But to get a really direct comparison of how it visually stacks up to other driving games, you’ve got to try the same car and conditions in each virtual world back-to-back-to-back.
Free Practice 1 for the Malaysian Grand Prix was red-flagged this morning for fifteen minutes after Kevin Magnussen’s Renault caught fire as it was being pushed into the garage.
