The Honda Fit is kind of an underrated machine. It’s not powerful, but with a manual it’s reasonably fun to drive as well as practical. Now let’s imagine it with 600 horsepower, all-wheel drive, and flying around on dirt and asphalt. Even better!
Heh heh heh FIRE! Mmmmmm FIRE! Heh heh heh huh huh heh heh heh cool. Heh heh FIRE! FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
When we last saw Scott Speed’s Red Bull Global Rallycross Volkswagen Beetle, it looked a bit off. Too clean. Too polished. Too together. Now that it made it through the X Games’ Rally Car feature race to win the event, however, it looks much more like a real, honest-to-goodness off-road Volkswagen.
We’re out here sweating our asses off at the X Games in Austin, but we’re about to be joined by one cool cat: skateboarder and Subaru Global Rally Team USA driver Bucky Lasek. Ask him anything you want!
The only way I can think of to cram more X Games into this picture is to redecorate Nelson Piquet Jr.’s car in neon, have someone jump it on a bike, and add a few more GoPros for good measure. Prepare your face for all things extreme!!!—the X Games are coming this weekend.
This is what happens when you get pushed off a ramp at just the wrong place on a Global Rallycross course. Collete Davis was nudged off the side of the ramp by another GRC Lites car who didn’t want to concede the racing line and got wedged between the ramp itself and the spotter’s stand.
Mister Kenny From The Block had a good weekend at the Global Rallycross season opener. He took first place in his glorious number 43 space car, and summed up the weekend in 43 impossibly loud, sideways, high-flying seconds. Crank up the volume and enjoy.
What does one of the world's most legendary skateboarders do when he wants to diversify his athletic accomplishments? He comes to Red Bull Global Rallycross, of course, and joins the world-renowned Subaru Rally Team USA to do it.
The Global Rallycross finale came down to the wire during the very last round, with Joni Wiman, Ken Block and Nelson Piquet, Jr., all in contention for the top spot. Ford Racing takes us behind the scenes for the final GRC round at Las Vegas.
When the Global Rallycross series made its way to Los Angeles, we sent our own Jason Connor up to check things out. While watching the practice sessions, he was given the chance to ride shotgun with Ken Block.

It's pretty much a Polo WRC, but with a funkier body built for Red Bull Global Rallycross. 544 Horsepower. 0-60 in 2.1 seconds. It's the fastest modern Beetle that isn't a Porsche.
Hello, Jalopnik universe! We've missed you during our summer vacation. (We hope you've missed us, too.) But we're going to make it up to you with one of the best races of the season this weekend, as we make our inaugural visit to Daytona International Speedway.
Summer is in full swing in the forests of New England, and this weekend the border country between New Hampshire and Maine is filled with rally cars. David Higgins and Craig Drew of Subaru Rally Team USA are on a mission. A fourth consecutive Rally-America Championship title is within their grasp. They will have to…
This year, the X Games entered the wonderful world of Austin, Texas to highlight a wide range of sports. We were in attendance to capture both the Global Rallycross and the Super Stadium Trucks. More and more automakers are joining the GRC fray, so it's clear that rallycross is gaining a bit in popularity.…
There are a few rules to racing. Hit the apex, power out of the corners, and one more – the Jalopnik Bump. If you want to win, you've got to get it. And it's power is clearly permeating.
