I once saw a McLaren F1 covered with dead bugs, clear evidence of a butler with a can of dead bugs and a tube of superglue — or of actual use of the car on an actual road. One day, there will be a shot like this of the P1. I hope. » 3/01/13 3:10pm 3/01/13 3:10pm

Help The NASCAR Fan That Got Hit With A Tire Find The Men Who Saved His…

Even though last Saturday's NASCAR crash was a terrible event, it was also a showcase for what's right with human kind. Fan Becket McGinn was hit in the chest with a tire and nearly killed. Two anonymous fans saved his life. He wants to know who they are. » 3/01/13 3:02pm 3/01/13 3:02pm

This Harlem Shake On An Airplane Triggered A Federal Investigation

Good Lord, I am so glad that the whole "Harlem Shake" thing is on the way out. To say that it was "massively irritating" is the understatement of the year. (It seems to have been replaced by a meme that involves putting screams into a video by someone named Taylor Swift.) But before the shake goes away forever, it… » 3/01/13 2:41pm 3/01/13 2:41pm

Thanks To A Bounced Check, F1's Worst Team Changes Drivers

How far gone are we from the days when talent was the best way to get into F1? So far that when GP2 driver and F1 hopeful Luiz Razia was fired from Marussia F1 yesterday, there was no question of how often he damaged the car in testing, how fast he was or how good he was at conserving tires. Instead, it was entirely… » 3/01/13 2:25pm 3/01/13 2:25pm

Mahindra Genio Double Cab Pickup: The Jalopnik Review

Mahindra doesn't sell any cars or trucks in the US. At all. So when they flew me out to India to show me what they do, I was naturally wondering if maybe they were planning on making another try for a spoonful of the vast US market. I asked everyone I could, and I either got very noncommittal replies or outright… » 3/01/13 2:00pm 3/01/13 2:00pm

'Maximum' Bob Lutz Body Slams Ex GM CEO Ed Whitacre

Former AT&T boss and 10-month GM CEO Ed Whitacre has a book out about how he saved GM. I've already lampooned that notion, but it's nice to see 'Maximum' Bob Lutz chime in, if only because Lutz was there and because Lutz is a jet-flying, Global Warming-denying madman who always speaks his mind. Lutz, predictably,… » 3/01/13 1:15pm 3/01/13 1:15pm

Experience A Race Weekend From The Driver's Eye

Whether you watch auto racing on TV or attend in person, you don't really get a full-on inside experience into a race team and what the driver sees. That's what you want to see and nobody shows it. Well, here it is. Finally. » 3/01/13 12:40pm 3/01/13 12:40pm

Let's All Feel Sorry For The MTV Blogger Who Almost Had To Be A Reporter

The saga over what Jeremy Clements said is no longer about what he said. That a NASCAR driver blurted out "the n-word" to a reporter is news, although not particularly surprising or interesting news. What is interesting is how much of this story revolves around the timidity of MTV reporter Marty Beckerman and MTV in… » 3/01/13 11:58am 3/01/13 11:58am
