The phrase “short tracks, short tempers” is a classic in racing, and there isn’t a more perfect example of than a recent incident from Bowman Gray Stadium—a wreck for the lead, retaliation under caution, and a grand finale of two cars smacking each other in the infield. This, everyone, is as authentic as it gets.
A Tesla Model X driver involved in a Montana crash earlier this month put the blame on the car’s Autopilot capabilities, later claiming that Tesla was trying to cover up issues with the system. But a public response by the manufacturer suggests that the car isn’t the one with the piloting issues.
There are a few ways that Formula One can inform a driver that there’s faster traffic behind him. One is with the traditional blue flag thrown by trackside marshals. Another, more desperate but more entertaining method, is for the overtaking driver to flip the bird as he blows by the slower car. Let’s watch!
Marc Lieb, why must we have this pointless Porsche-on-Porsche violence? Why? Why?
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the world’s most notable hedgehog, Honda showed a Sonic the Hedgehog-themed Civic at Comic-Con this year. But what people may not realize is the Sonic-Civic was actually just the latest in a long-running series of video game-themed cars to be shown at Comic-Con. And not all of them…
Over the week, British car magazine Autocar reported that the beloved McLaren F1 would be reborn in 2018 as the “hyper-GT” with a price of well over $2.6 million. But if you’ve already started saving your pennies, slow down a bit—according to reports, McLaren’s CEO shut down that rumor.
Conditions were so nasty at the Hungaroring yesterday that 11 drivers of the 22-car Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix field set qualifying times slower than 107% the time of Rosberg’s leading 1:33.302 lap, reports Racer. Under F1's 107% rule, anyone who qualifies that slowly gets pulled from the race.
If you want the new trucktracular twin-turbo V6 2017 Ford Raptor—and really, who doesn’t?—here’s how much it’s apparently going to reduce your bank account.
We’re out at Lime Rock Park for the IMSA races this weekend and we recently joined a cool mobile-phone app, which means that we’re venturing into the world of Snapchat and bringing the fun straight to our “jalopnikdotcom” account.
Our guy David Tracy is hanging out with a wild, almost alien-looking custom Jeep Wrangler right now, and its owner wants to show him—and all of you—around it. The word on the street is that David’s going to get to take it for a spin, and he’ll be sharing the whole experience live on Facebook.
Following a NASCAR pileup that sent driver Austin Dillon scaling the catch fence as his car shred behind him last year, a fan allegedly injured in the incident filed a lawsuit against both the track and NASCAR. The fan alleges that debris hit him in the head and shoulder, and that he has yet to fully recover.
The hotly contested GTLM class—the top GT class in American endurance racing—makes its triumphant return to Lime Rock Park this afternoon. Here’s a Porsche blasting through the Connecticut woods, as it should be. Today’s race starts at 3:00 p.m. ET on Fox.
Take a deep breath before you realize that Sonic the Hedgehog turns 25 years old this year, and then let out a sigh of content when you see the cute Honda Civic adorned in a Sonic scheme for the San Diego Comic-Con. With Sonic on the back, it looks ready as ever to rev up and go for some golden rings.
In response to a rules breach by Nico Rosberg and his team at the British Grand Prix, Formula One did the least logical thing they could—make even more rules, which four-time champion Sebastian Vettel reportedly called “bullshit.” For the sake of foul language in the cockpit, let’s hope he didn’t say it on the radio.
If you looked–really looked—at the 2016 Toyota Camry, you wouldn’t expect the leggy girls in short dresses who get into the clubs for free to climb out of it. It’s humbler than that. Maybe if the leggy girl got hitched and then moved out to the suburbs, maybe. And that’s why I like it so much.
