The BMW E36 generation of 3 Series is one of the most affordable, desirable cars on the used market today and there’s very little reason not to buy one. I say this because I have been bewitched, bewitched by this comparison test involving the top three British touring cars of 1992, some furious shifting and a lot of…
I spent a great deal of last week reading about wonderful, er, liberal interpretations of the rules in motorsports, but by chance I happened upon one of my favorites that I’d completely forgotten about. And it involves parts getting shoved in the trunk.
Thank goodness for race workers, as they often sit in relatively unprotected stands right next to the action. It’s the best view in the house, but you definitely hope all the stands are in locations where no one will hit them. This British Touring Car Championship crash is everyone’s worst nightmare turned up to 11.
Three-time British Touring Car Championship champion Matt Neal was doing something with the new BBC Top Gear track. Per one of his tweets, there may (may!) be a rallycross-style off-road section with a jump.
To many of us, the greatest touring car of all time was the Volvo 850 wagon. Not by any quantifiable mark like wins, but because it was the British Touring Car Championship’s first wagon. You can’t not smile at a wagon being driven like a maniac. Now Team BMR is bringing the insanity back with a Subaru Levorg.
I know I’ve written about fingernails a lot this week, but if you’re a nail biter (gross), prepare for the entire ends of your fingers to be completely annihilated after you watch the last laps of this year’s British Touring Car Championship.
The BTCC finished its season in traditional style at Brands Hatch on the full GP loop. Coming into the finale 5 drivers had a mathematical chance of winning, though in reality Gordon Shedden, driving a Honda Civic and Jason Plato in a VW Passat CC were the favourites.
When the Christmas book rankings were released in 2014, it came as a shock to many that a certain truck mechanic from Grimsby had outsold Hilary Clinton’s greatly anticipated memoir ‘Hard Choices’. Bookshops all across London were asking, “who is this Guy Martin?”, “where has he come from?” and, “was he the bloke on…
In CC Mason's new video for "Racecar," former Stig Ben Collins appears to have been typecast as a guy who stands around with his arms crossed. We all knew the Stigs would have to move on with the cancellation of Top Gear, but we didn't know life would be this rough. Now he's been put into a music video, still as The…
The British Touring Car Championship is a magical place where rubbin's racin' gets applied to a road course, all done in cars that would be candidates for "Regular Car Reviews" if they were stateside. This weekend's ridiculous photo finish is no exception: there's no telling who will win until the very last second.
The BTCC season opened today, and RWS Motorsport posted a ton of great images from the weekend at Brands Hatch. Hooray for touring cars!
When you've got a hatchback that puts out 310 horsepower and maybe obliterated a front-wheel drive Nürburgring record, how can you not take it racing? That's what Honda plans to do with the new 2016 Civic Type R. The updated car will replace its predecessor for the 2015 British Touring Car Championship season.
The British Touring Car Championship is beyond rowdy: fact. There's not a lot of mechanical sympathy in the BTCC, that's for sure. Only problem: we don't get it on television. That's about to change.
Infiniti is about to get real. Infinti is about to get crazy. Infinti is about to start being sort-of-British. Infiniti is about to go racing.
Driver Rob Collard was involved in a rather significant crash in today's BTCC #2 race at Silverstone. Rather amazingly, given how far his vehicle flew when clipped by another driver, Collard appears to have sustained no injuries.
Well, okay, so the trailer itself is nothing special apart from the racing livery, but being towed by a BTCC wagon with a side pipe makes all the difference.
Twenty years have passed since Volvo entered two 850 wagons in the British Touring Car Championship. To this day it is still one of the bravest, nuttiest, and awesome cars. Why? Because racing wagon.
BTCC driver Alain Menu may not need a trip to the hospital, but a trip to the underwear store might be warranted after this unbelievably lucky near-miss.
