I never knew just how out of shape my garbage marshmallow body was until I attempted a brief sample of what the Red Bull Racing Formula One drivers put themselves through in order to handle the brutal forces of an F1 car. F1 drivers have to be strong, fit and able to react quickly in order to win, and they’re…
We’ve seen a lot of data breaches this year: some big, some small, some that are dangerous, and some that are just embarrassing. But if we were to name one as the creepiest data breach of 2017, this leak of logins for car tracking devices might take the cake.
When an ad to enter a charity raffle for a fully restored twin-turbo 1994 Toyota Supra popped up on Daniel Shepard’s Facebook feed earlier this year, he put down $100 for six tickets. Shepard, and everyone else, lost the incredibly controversial raffle, but it didn’t take long for him to run into the car again.
Junkyards are heaven on earth to most of us, but pro drifter Chris Forsberg took his junkyard run a step further by setting up a few choice obstacles and drifting the whole thing in his new “Proximity” video. Let’s reminisce about all the once-good beaters in the background and watch some sweet drifts!
Next year will be IndyCar driver Scott Dixon’s 17th year with Chip Ganassi Racing, reports Motorsport.com. Yes, you read that right. Seventeenth. Ganassi is even downsizing back to two cars from four, but Dixon’s job is safe for obvious (winning) reasons. Still, holy crap: 17 years with the same team is all but…
Ryan is rather proficient at procreating. So much so he has three kids including one set of twins and another on the way. His old SUV just isn’t going to cut it anymore and he would like something a bit more comfortable. What car should he buy?
Porsche, an automaker whose head of GT cars once said that Nürburgring lap times aren’t a priority, is apparently out to punch the Nürburgring lap time sheet in the face. The new 2018 GT2 RS was just spotted at the ‘Ring making a sub-seven minute run of the Nordschleife course where the battle over lap records goes…
Your childhood fantasies of soaring through the air like Iron Man or Superman will seem far less fantastic after this sobering first-person footage of a drone racing alongside a moving cargo train reveals just how terrifying (and slightly nauseating) it would be to actually fly.
The Bugatti Chiron is fast. It’s really fast, if you want specifics—so fast Bugatti puts a speed limiter on it because modern tires can’t handle the pressure speeds near 300 mph would put on them. So, naturally, to film its record 249-mph Chiron run, Bugatti had to use something just as fast: another Chiron.
Yamaha MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi has been cleared to race again a mere 21 days after breaking his right leg in a motocross accident, the series announced today. If all goes well in practice, he’ll be back racing at Aragon this weekend.
We’ve seen several deals on these electric shoulder massagers, but this one is somewhat unique in that it’s battery powered, so you can use it outdoors, on a plane, or anywhere around your house where there isn’t a convenient power outlet nearby. We’ve posted a similar product from Naipo a few times before, but this…
