Wheelie-ing an ATV down public roads in shorts, a t-shirt and sandals while your buddy films it is a terrible idea. Drifting into the oncoming lane so you can wheelie past your buddies is an even worse one. Most of you hopefully already know this, but this video is proof that some don’t.
Tony Stewart was involved in a non-racing-related all-terrain vehicle accident Saturday that left him with a burst fracture of the L1 vertebra, per Autosport. Unfortunately, Stewart-Haas Racing confirmed today that Stewart will miss the start of his final NASCAR Sprint Cup season to recover from the injury.
One day after his 23rd birthday, Loris Baz was having a lovely afternoon testing his MotoGP bike at the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia (where I just rode the new Kawasaki ZX-10R) when the soft compound Michelin rear tire he was riding on blew up—at 180 mph.
If you’ve been watching the 24 Hours of Daytona, you may have been baffled by the speed of the Lamborghinis. Several drivers mentioned that the Lamborghini Huracán GT3s are significantly faster than the rest of the GTD class, but the two leading Lamborghinis solved that issue by taking each other out late at night.
A fantastic run by the DeltaWing gave fans hope. It’s quick today! It’s holding together! Maybe today’s Rolex 24 at Daytona will be the race where it finally has a chance at the overall win! Sadly, DeltaWing driver Andy Meyrick rear-ended a stopped car on track that wasn’t signaled with a full-course yellow flag.
Jari-Matti Latvala failed to stop and check on the photographer he hit in a low-speed crash during Stage 11 of the Rallye Monte-Carlo, and the World Rally Championship isn’t happy about that. Latvala claimed that poor visibility kept him from seeing the man on his hood, and the series didn’t buy that excuse.
Dakar Rally’s television coverage alluded to a wreck that forced American racing legend Robby Gordon to withdraw from the race, but offered few details. Now we know why: the oops in question was quite boneheaded, involving one of Gordon’s support vehicles and some dangerous shenanigans on the highway.
Anyone who’s been following Sébastien Loeb since his World Rally Championship days knows that he’s a beast, and he’s been proving that all over again at this year’s Dakar Rally. He rolled on Stage 8, but he and co-driver Daniel Elena managed to put the car back together to limp to the end of the stage.
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) is easily the most batshit insane motorcycle race in the United States. The 12.42-mile long course is where the fastest and craziest among us go to compete against both fellow man and mountain as they ride to the top of the 14,110 foot summit. But this year, many of them…
America was built on speed. Hot, nasty, badass speed. (Other countries do it too, we’ve heard.) But sometimes the speed brings us some truly unexpected moments. To say that it was hard to narrow this list down to a top 30 was an understatement. However, that’s just what we’ve done: here are the 30 craziest, least…
Crashing is a part of motorcycling, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck. While the words “crash” and “accident” are often interchangeable, they’re still learning experiences just like the rest of our time on two wheels. What have you learned from hitting the deck?
Take a scrap Porsche 911 shell that would have otherwise ended up as raw material for toasters and stuff a Volkswagen TDI engine in the rear, and we’ll love your LeMons team forever. Destroy the car’s front end but make it back on track after only two and a half hours and you’re gunning for Repair of the Year.
Video has emerged of what looks to be a super-expensive Koenigsegg Agera R supercar crashing in China. Priced somewhere around $4,000,000 US, it’s likely one of the most—if not the most—expensive single-vehicle accident ever.
Here’s the first corner of TCR International’s Race 2 at the Macau Grand Prix. It’s the kind of mega pile-up that only the combination of huevos grandes, a narrow circuit and little regard for intact bumpers can produce.
We’ve got a late entry for Mom of the Year, folks. Bridge to Gantry reports that a Swiss mother-son duo who got busted doing 133 mph in an 80 mph zone on the way to the last open tourist drive day of the year at the Nürburgring, but she unleashed him alone for a few laps of ‘ring hoonage, where he binned the car.
It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year. Of course, I’m not talking about Christmas — it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. I’m talking about something way better. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. That’s right: it’s time for everyone to release their annual compilations of Nürburgring crashes. Enjoy!
Tony Stewart is the latest NASCAR Sprint Cup driver to mow the lawn. Stewart spun into the grass on lap 51 at Texas Motor Speedway, heavily damaging his car and taking him out of the race.
A Richard Petty Motorsports transporter was involved in a crash carrying NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Dakota Armstrong’s No. 43 car.
We’ve all had bad days. Days where our bikes wouldn’t start or where we got a flat in the heat of summer. Even days where everything is going right, but then we get caught speeding or have an off. This, though, is a whole new level of bad.
