Oh, the joys of buying a brand new motorcycle. You just spent seven hours signing paperwork in a dealer and having some greasy salesman tell you how you’re going to be the coolest and fastest guy around, and now it’s finally time to leave on your new stallion. »
If there’s one great thing about Porsche’s numerous Carrera Cup series, it’s the close racing that comes from having everyone in the same car. For Joffrey De Narda at today’s Carrera Cup France race, perhaps it was a bit too close, as Jules Gounon’s 911 ramped right onto the roof of his 911.
Poor Carlos Sainz Jr. Not only did he whack into the pit entry cone as he pulled into the pits, but he locked up his tires trying to slow down down to pit lane speed in time. This looked like the worst last minute pit call ever, but the upside is that the pit entry cone is worth ten imaginary bonus points!
With the right knowledge and a little bit of forethought, the first person on the scene at a motorcycle accident can make the difference between life and death. I just wish I’d thought about this stuff before I found a rider down, trapped under his own bike on a desolate road. Here’s what happened. »
Here’s your occasional reminder why the Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most dangerous track in the world. This Renault lost it in the Schwedenkreuz section of the track, went airborne after hitting the wall, and then rolled several times to a stop.

There were two main contenders for the Pirelli World Challenge GT championship: Cadillac’s Johnny O’Connell and R. Ferri’s Olivier Beretta. Beretta was a highly controversial figure this year, with his rough racing style prompting a podium walk-off at Long Beach. Now he won’t get a championship, either. »
Changing weather conditions mixed up the MotoGP race at Misano today, with the track going from dry to wet and back to dry again. Championship hopeful Jorge Lorenzo wiped out switching back to dry tires, sending him off track and severely hurting him in the points.
Guy Martin is a man unlike other men. He’s had some of the most epic crashes in road racing history, including this recent one from the Ulster GP on August 6th. Now, just a few weeks later and with a few more pieces of metal in his body he’s up, he’s back at work, and he’s alright....really. »
The big surprise in this legitimately bonkers biking video is that there is absolutely no surprise in what happens. You see everything happen before it happens even though you’re in disbelief as it is about to happen and question if this could really happen. I mean, the bike rider, Primož Ravnik, rides straight down… »
