Is This The Hottest Woman Ever To Ride In A Rally Car?

For legal reasons, we can't tell you the name of the supermodel you see auditioning to be a navigator for our friend Skiny. But, we can tell you that we're pretty jealous he got to get take her for a ride. Skiny's the host of an upcoming show called The Gentleman's Guide to Racing. » 5/16/12 2:30pm 5/16/12 2:30pm

How I Survived The 'Anus Of Motor Racing' With A Dandy And His Pee Tube

One of the toughest tests of physical endurance and driving talent on the planet, the Baja 1000 is the last place you'd expect to find a European fop with a penchant for jaunty scarfs. But, late last year, that's just what Transcontinental-record holder Alex Roy did. The race is so tough Roy pissed himself. » 3/20/12 12:00pm 3/20/12 12:00pm

We just got a tip from our guy Skiny (above), idea man and Audi Avant road-rallyist. His latest project involves a ragtag group of diesel engineers, celebrities and related cohorts.

Why Did the Bullrunners Cross the Road?

Mach Freunden Mit Dein Schnell: A Post to Pacify Wert

We're not sure if TeeVee Wert really wanted to go on the Bullrun, as he made some namby-pamby excuse about being stuck at some Ferrari party because he needed to impress some girl and dragged Austin with him, thus leaving the fully-awesome Skiny without Jalopnik pals to hang out with in Detroit (note to people in… » 7/30/06 9:00pm 7/30/06 9:00pm

Bullrun Update: What's Up With the Stude?

Just got off the phone with Haller, riding along with Skiny in the Audi A6 4.2. He reports that the Chicago to St. Louis lunch run has some really fast portions to it, roads where it would be theoretically possible to do 200+. Meanwhile, after almost scoring an engine last night due to the generosity of one of our… » 7/24/06 4:00pm 7/24/06 4:00pm
