This 1963 S3 Continental was the last coach-built car from Bentley, giving it a quality and grace that isn’t anything like a modern car. Charles Morgan wonders if the car even has a place in the real world anymore.
Renault Formula One drver Kevin Magnussen lost the back end of his car at the top of the Raidillon hill at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, spinning at high speed into the wall at Turn 4. Magnussen’s left ankle was injured on impact, and he has been sent to a local hospital for further evaluation.
0.008 seconds was all that separated IndyCar race winner Graham Rahal from James Hinchcliffe—the man who had led most of the restarted race at Texas Motor Speedway but got passed by Rahal on the very last lap. The race was full of close dicing back and forth, but it set a record for TMS’ closest finish ever.
After the rear of Ed Carpenter’s car touched the front corner of Scott Dixon’s IndyCar at Texas Motor Speedway, Dixon spun out of control and into the wall. Dixon, of course, let Carpenter know he was just fine (but mad) in everyone’s favorite way: with two middle fingers up.
Recently, footage of a woman melting down on a New York City subway while trying to sell bugs went viral. There wasn’t much context until Friday, when the woman behind the stunt—who, not according to plan, peed during it—admitted it was a prank intended to bring awareness to homelessness and mental health.
Bubba Wallace’s No. 6 Ford Mustang stock car overheated during today’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Road America, and decided it wanted to become an old-timey steam train instead.
Break out the ark. Conditions at today’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Virginia International Raceway went from “awesome, rain!” to Old Testament-grade punishment in a matter of minutes. Normally we wouldn’t think twice about a wet race, but this one almost completely hid the cars.
In case you got sick of the boringly dominant Mercedes AMG Formula One team and stopped watching F1, oh, a few years ago maybe, good news—Mercedes driver and defending champion Lewis Hamilton will start at the back in the Belgian Grand Prix, adhering to a 55-place grid penalty in a 22-car field.
Max Verstappen claimed a second-place starting position for the Belgian Grand Prix today, breaking a 55-year-old record for the youngest front-row starter in Formula One history, per Sky Sports. I don’t think we’d be lion if we told you this dude was ecstatic over that, either.
If you tune into the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship race this weekend, you’ll notice only one Porsche 911 GT3 R in the GT Daytona class instead of the expected three. The Porsche GTD teams are fuming mad, including one owned by the founder of the series’ biggest sponsor.
McLaren fitted an updated Honda power unit to both of their Formula One cars for the Belgian Grand Prix in hopes of catching up to the rest of the field. However, a water leak in first practice forced them to swap units again in Fernando Alonso’s car. Today, that new power unit only made it about 500 meters in…
Let’s just call this car a custom build. It was customized by speed.
Just don’t send me the bill, because I’m a big fan of getting the last laugh.
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?

After creating a near-perfect functional replica of Captain America’s iconic shield, YouTube personality the Hacksmith is trying to build his own flying Iron Man suit. To test a couple of compact jet engines the suit will rely on, he strapped them to his waist, hopped on a longboard, and lived every 10-year-old’s…
This is quite possibly the greatest piece of local news entertainment in the “automotive comedy” category in years.
While we laud ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft for making it easier to get home from the pub, we sometimes forget about the drivers.
