Could You Hang On At 206 MPH Around The Isle Of Man On The Kawasaki H2R?

Riding the Isle of Man fast takes some serious cojones. Riding the Isle of Man fast on a race bike takes serious cojones and a whole lot of skill. Riding the Isle of Man fast on a 300 hp, supercharged Kawasaki H2R - that takes cojones, skill, and a whole lot of crazy. » 8/31/15 3:43pm Monday 3:43pm

You Just Missed The Coolest Motorcycle Riding Competition, And It All Went Down Online

Real Moto 2015 is a video-only, free riding category in this year’s X Games. If the idea of a video-only category bothers you, realize that it’s both 2015 and that, by definition, free riding doesn’t happen in massive arenas or designed courses. I too was skeptical, until I hit play... » 8/27/15 12:52pm Thursday 12:52pm

Kelsey MC2: The Road Legal, Homebuilt Rally Car That's Too Fast for the WRC

You wouldn’t believe it at first look, but this is not a Peugeot 206 207 WRC car. This car was built from the chassis on up, from scratch, by a 22 year old rally driver named Alex Kelsey. It weighs just 1,000 KG (2,200 lbs) and makes 450 HP to all four wheels from a Renaultsport V6 out of a Formula 2 car. Only the… » 8/17/15 2:54pm 8/17/15 2:54pm

The Insane Baja Race You've Never Heard Of

The film Dust To Glory captures the fierce competition of the high-stakes Baja 1000 desert race. But there’s another amazing event that runs down the peninsula every year: the NORRA Mexican 1000. We tagged along to shoot this video and show you why it’s called “a high-horsepower conga line to the finish.” » 6/18/15 1:37pm 6/18/15 1:37pm

An Absolutely Massive Volcano Is Exploding In Chile Right Now

Calbuco, a stratovolcano in southern Chile, began erupting yesterday at 7pm local time. First spewing massive ash clouds then, at 10pm, erupting explosively as its fragile structure collapsed inwards. Here’s all the stunning imagery and video; we’ll keep it updated as this develops. You can see it from space! » 4/23/15 1:28pm 4/23/15 1:28pm

Video: A 1,000 HP R34 GTR is Better in Real Life Than in Video Games

In our travels to New Zealand, we drove a huge variety of cars, all of which were excellent in their own ways. But the one we were most excited about was, of course, the one we can’t have here for 9 more years: The R34 Skyline GTR. Almost like a bonus, this one makes four times the power it left the factory with, an… » 4/21/15 2:56pm 4/21/15 2:56pm

What Happens if You Crash One of Those Cars You're Testing? 

I get asked all the time, “What happens if you crash one of those cars you’re testing?” Fair question: I have to pay for it. But that’s not the hardest part. The hardest part is immediately having to get back in another borrowed car and test that. On our trip to New Zealand, in horrible conditions, that’s… » 4/14/15 8:45pm 4/14/15 8:45pm

The Toyota Chaser is the 4-Door Super Sleeper of Our Dreams

Though it may look just like our 1996-2001 Toyota Camry at a glance, the Toyota Chaser is no beigemobile. Because the Japanese spent the 90’s selling their coolest cars only to themselves, we never got the Toyota Chaser; it looks like a Camry, but underneath, it’s a Supra. We’re in love. » 4/02/15 1:54pm 4/02/15 1:54pm

Video: Heaven is an AE86 In the Rain

In New Zealand, motorsport runs as deep through the country as sheep-herding, fishing, and Hobbits. Practically every weekend of the year, you can find a hillclimb, street sprint, or track day somewhere in the country. So we went to the track with the Hutt Valley Motorsport Club, and hopped in president Jared Rush's… » 3/19/15 10:28am 3/19/15 10:28am

This is the World's Most Interesting Vauxhall Viva

New Zealand is quite possibly the most car-crazy per capita country in the entire world, as we at TST recently learned by touring the whole country for two weeks. Most importantly, Kiwis take incredible pride in doing everything themselves, from body work, to making parts, to repurposing parts that never should have… » 3/12/15 12:09pm 3/12/15 12:09pm
