From their classic 1950s 550 racers to their newest 24 Hours of Le Mans winner—this is the history of Porsche, told in 20 race cars over a single lap of Laguna Seca.
Small-time rallies and hillclimbs happen all the time, all around the world. Here are some of the most intense moments culled from the gazillions of megabytes of onboard video out there.
This is no ordinary Ford econobox. And it’s no ordinary rally driver behind the wheel, either.
We’ve all seen eleven trillion billion laps of the Nürburgring Nordschleife, but they’re all usually in the same direction. What does it look like in the other direction? Participants in a special stage of the Rallye Köln-Ahrweiler got a chance to find out.
This guy beat out all of the more modern R5 rally cars with his older Group N Mitsubishi Evo. And the way he drives is beyond gnarly.
If there’s one race that’s gotten people talking about the regular season of IndyCar, it’s last weekend’s controversial outing at Auto Club Speedway. Whether your loved it or hated it, the onboards are certainly fascinating to watch. If you think passing one or two cars is nuts, watch these guys go four-wide.
The Isle of Man TT is one of the fastest, most dangerous races in the world. 600cc rider Tuukka Korhonen got a nice reminder why Snaefell Mountain is such a notorious course during Wednesday’s practice, where he had several faster motorcycles whir past him within a few minutes.
There’s something surreal about the onboards from cars that travel over 220 mph lap after lap around an oval. Indianapolis Motor Speedway looks huge in all other respects, yet the onboards make it almost feel like you’re in your cousin’s Camaro, doin’ donuts on the lawn. Everything feels much, much smaller.
No, not those stupid highway speeding crashfests dudes do in sticker-covered Bentleys. I’m talking about stage rally competition. That’s what this guy did, and it’s awesome.
How fast is too fast? This seems like too fast.
Kris Meeke doesn't care that it's dark or icy during this test for Rally Sweden. Not one bit. He still goes ridiculously quick anyway. Oh, and ridiculously sideways.
Rally types call these things "exposures." I call them "flashbacks to when my friend fell off Pike's Peak." Either way, here's some excellent footage of Robert Kubica not driving off a mountain during the Rallye Monte Carlo.
Driver Gunnar Jeannette is one of the luckiest dudes in the world. As a professional driver and the son of famed Porsche restorer Kevin Jeannette, he has access to toys most of us only dream about. Here's a delightfully diverse collection of his onboard laps assembled for our enjoyment.
I was not sure race cars even could go this sideways.
You know a rally stage is insanely fast when the codriver has to tell his driver to "be brave."
How fast does it feel to compete in a modern rally car? Watch this visor-cam onboard from Racer Magazine and let your mind be blown.
Yes, this is a fantastic stripped, caged, and race-prepped Subaru (the great Gobstopper II). Yes, this is a fantastic driver (Roger Clark). And yes, this is a fantastic onboard (the fastest lap yet of the circuit). That's fine, but I'm going to need to drive this racetrack now.
I just... I can't believe this isn't sped up.
The McLaren P1 is fast. Shockingly fast. Unbelievably fast. But can a tiny little lightweight BAC Mono single seater outrun it at Silverstone?
How has Spa's daunting, uphill Eau Rouge complex changed over the years? Watch these onboards and you'll see.
