With significantly colder temperatures than yesterday and qualifying looming on the schedule later today, this morning’s Free Practice 3 for MotoGP at Circuit of the Americas saw a lot of riders sliding off their motorcycles. Even Marc Márquez, who has won every MotoGP race at COTA so far, slid off twice.
A wild Ford Mustang attack was thwarted by a brick house in London today. No word yet on what happened to the other two little pigs though, police are still sifting through a bunch of wood and straw. Just kidding, but the car did make a $40,000 mess of an elderly couple’s house.
With high-performance cars comes high-stakes driving, and it looks like somebody’s talent boiled off into tragedy behind the wheel of what had to have been one of the first 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulias sold in America. Hopefully they’ll recover, but the car almost certainly will not.
Remember that asshole who ran two motorcyclists off a Texas two-lane in 2015, then had nothing to say besides “I don’t care”? Local news says he’s now been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
I saw this video and went to myself, “That dude is dead, for sure.” And then he wasn’t! I was so happy to be wrong.
It’s the worst nightmare of car enthusiasts everywhere. A member of the Porsche forum Rennlist left his 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS at the Bob Hindson Racing shop in Kansas City, Missouri, to have new headers, exhaust and a tune installed, but the shop owner hit a building while out on a drive and totaled the prized…
NASCAR, a series that adores bunching all its cars up for contact-prone restarts, just announced a new Damaged Vehicle Policy in the name of “safety.” What it also does is make it easier than ever to wreck your nemesis out of the race.
Damn. In a terrifying accident in Utah, a FrontRunner train crashed into a FedEx truck and basically shredded its trailer into pieces, sending boxes flying everywhere. Thankfully (and impressively), there were no serious injuries in the crash, as it seemed the train busted through the softest part of the FedEx truck.
Displaying an unusual combination of bad judgment and exceptional dexterity, this motorcyclist rear-ends a speeding car in the fast lane of a highway but instead of wiping out, the biker actually hops up on the trunk of the car and hangs on as it carries on at full speed.
Oil is the lifeblood of every gasoline and diesel-burning automobile engine. It flows through the components, keeping them cool and lubricated. Without it, the engine would just seize up and fry itself. But apparently they can keep on churning for longer than I expected.
She wasn’t young anymore, but still elegant. And finally taking that breath of fresh air she’d been craving so long. When her big city shoes couldn’t keep up with the pace of her soul-searching she slipped, right into the arms of a strapping young cowboy. Could this be what she was looking for all along?
Utah DOT driver Terry Jacobson is miraculously alive after his highway plow truck got checked into oncoming traffic and off a cliff by a semi-truck trying to pass him.
Last Friday a Lamborghini Huracán mutilated itself and a Ferrari 458 Italia in a wholly unspectacular low-speed collision. The automotive community has come together, gawked and cried out in unison: “Bummer.”
You know you messed up when the “tow truck” they send is a helicopter.
Reports are coming out of New Zealand that a 1994 McLaren F1 rolling through the country with over 30 other McLaren supercars has crashed. Sounds like nobody was physically hurt, but I’m heartbroken to hear one of my childhood idols may have been damaged!
Today’s Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix is a very wet race. No one can see. Perfect time to spin out as traffic comes at you, then. Feel the pain of these wet-weather spins and smashes.
Stock pickup trucks are not strong enough to survive jumps. You know it, I know it, but some folks just need to learn these things for themselves. That’s when you just hope somebody’s standing around with a camera!
Crashed off the side of the infamous Tail of the Dragon with no reception, Kevin Diepenbrock thought he was going to die. In the 30 hours before his miraculous rescue, he recorded what he thought were to be his last words to his family.
The first day of practice at this year’s MalaysianGP did not go great for British rider Sam Lowes, who wiped out in turn 14, got back on the track and immediately got wrecked up by another rider. The guy was just not meant to get around that corner.
If there’s one thing that shouldn’t be in the same sentence as “showbiz,” it’s Formula One crashes, where the cockpit is exposed and cars reach ludicrously high speeds. Despite this, F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone suggested building walls closer to tracks to up the danger factor—it makes a better show!
