The fact that there’s 20 full minutes of lowlights from one racing weekend should tell you that maybe a certain “historic” racing venue is a tad sketch. That’s what the 2017 Macau Grand Prix weekend gave us thanks to the mad genius behind CrashRacing. My only beef is that it’s not set to “Spanish Flea” or the Benny…
Prototype Challenge plowed off track for good this year, as the class was retired from the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship. PC allowed amateur-rated drivers a place to compete against each other in real, honest-to-goodness, purpose-built racing prototypes. Naturally, they crashed a lot.
One woman was seriously injured after a U.S. Army Reserve Humvee rolled down a hill and into a crowd at the Long Island Bacon Bash on Saturday evening, according to Newsday. Police said the Humvee, an attraction at the festival, was parked, before it “came out of gear,” going down an embankment and pinning the woman…
Early in the morning on Sunday in Sandton, South Africa, cameras caught an Audi TT flying through the air. The aftermath was not pretty.
A U.S. Air Force pilot flying an aircraft died last week after a crash at the Nevada Test and Training Range, according to Military.com. Very few details about the incident have been released as the military says information about the incident is classified.
A 25-year-old Orlando man was arrested and charged with DUI after allegedly smashing his 2003 Chevy Blazer through the gates of an apartment complex and proceeding to wreak havoc in the parking lot, crashing into 17 cars in what may have been the worst parking job ever.
The California Highway Patrol is scouring the streets for this dickbag who was caught ramming their Infinti G37 into a BMW, sending it careening under a semi-truck. Nobody was hurt, but the sooner this dangerous asshole is removed from our roads the better.
Huh. Looks like your bike rides better without you, man.
It was heartbreak in Assen, Netherlands for Dutch rider Bo Bendsneyder as his 10th place finish was given a DNF. A last lap kurfuffle with another rider on the final chicane resulted in Bensneyder being ejected from his bike as he slid across the finish line. Apparently this is against the rules. Lame.
Moto2 qualifying for tomorrow’s Dutch Grand Prix came to a halt today as Italian rider Lorenzo Baldassarri launched his bike, and himself, high into the air in a crash that left this viewer assuming he must be completely broken. Baldassarri later tweeted from the hospital that he’s “almost like new”:
Did you get suckered into doing other things during the past 15 hours besides watching the 24 Hours of Le Mans? Are you looking at the timing screen wondering why we’re down to only one working Porsche 911 RSR and one Toyota TS050? We’re here to help. Here’s the rundown of retirements so far.
Saturday’s IndyCar race had so much crash damage, only six of its 22 cars finished on the lead lap. Wrecks racked up an estimated $1.8 million in damage across the field, per Racer—and that’s a conservative estimate. That works out to about 180 gently used Spec 944s, or five beige McMansions in the Ft. Worth…
This rider made it out of this crash ok, but it could have gone a lot worse. You don’t want to be taking a hit to the dome at 140+ mph.
This is not another example of “lane splitting gone wrong,” but it is a classic case of a dingus driver making multiple simultaneous mistakes and damn near killing somebody with their inattentiveness. The motorcyclist literally just sighs as he’s carried down the road on the car’s trunk. Has this happened before?
During the Moto3 race at the MotoGP World Championship’s French Grand Prix over the weekend, it was almost like some sort of weird, hypnotic spell had been put on the field. As if prompted, a huge group of riders began solo slides into a gravel trap along the race course in an almost surreal fashion.
With significantly colder temperatures than yesterday and qualifying looming on the schedule later today, this morning’s Free Practice 3 for MotoGP at Circuit of the Americas saw a lot of riders sliding off their motorcycles. Even Marc Márquez, who has won every MotoGP race at COTA so far, slid off twice.
A wild Ford Mustang attack was thwarted by a brick house in London today. No word yet on what happened to the other two little pigs though, police are still sifting through a bunch of wood and straw. Just kidding, but the car did make a $40,000 mess of an elderly couple’s house.
With high-performance cars comes high-stakes driving, and it looks like somebody’s talent boiled off into tragedy behind the wheel of what had to have been one of the first 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulias sold in America. Hopefully they’ll recover, but the car almost certainly will not.
Remember that asshole who ran two motorcyclists off a Texas two-lane in 2015, then had nothing to say besides “I don’t care”? Local news says he’s now been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
I saw this video and went to myself, “That dude is dead, for sure.” And then he wasn’t! I was so happy to be wrong.
