Are you paying attention to Ultra4 racing? This picture might convince you you should be.
Women’s participation in motorsports is growing for sure, but it definitely doesn’t represent the ratio between men and women in the general population—yet. This has not escaped the notice of professional off-roader and bona fide badass Emily Miller, whose women-only Rebelle Rally has become one of the most grueling…
The 2017 Ford Raptor has been out for months now, and just about everyone who’s driven it has been impressed. It’s easy to appreciate immense power, but a lot of this truck’s most magical wizardry happens with gearing and electronic controls.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations has turned out some pretty slick shit in its relatively short life so far; the Range Rover Sport SVR and Jaguar F-Type SVR are both filthy tarmac-torturers. But given Land Rover’s adventure pedigree we’ve been waiting for an off-road equivalent, and it looks like the…
Ever since the U.S. military started pawning its ratty old Humvees off on the public through surplus auctions, people have been wondering how good they really are as off-road toys. I mean, we already know they’re suboptimal for city traffic. Anyway, here’s a peek at how to make one of these metal monsters sing.
Here’s a Subaru Forester that looks like it lost one ox, 420 pounds of food and three sets of clothing fording the swollen Moore River in Western Australia. The river was nearly 4 feet deep and carried the early Forester away, but this off-roader managed to save it anyway. Definitely don’t try this at home.
For the 2017 Baja 1000, which is being recognized as the 50th anniversary of the event, race sanctioning body SCORE has created two new classes for period-correct race vehicles built before 1992. It’s going to be old-school cool fender-to-fender all the way down to La Paz, baby!
To assert the legitimacy of its off-roadiness, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 is going to take on the grueling 550-mile Vegas To Reno desert race this weekend with its stock engine and transmission. And license plates; this competition truck is totally street-legal, according to GM.
Baja racing is a nuanced spur of motorsports that combines adventure travel, extreme endurance, and hundreds of miles of high-stakes problem-solving down Mexico’s western peninsula. Here’s a look at what the Baja 500 really looks like from a small family team’s perspective.
BRO DO YOU THINK THE 2018 JEEP WRANGLER CAN BE STOPPED? NOT EVEN CLOSE, JUNIOR. WATCH IT COME BLASTING ACROSS THIS BARREN LANDSCAPE IN AN UNPRECEDENTED ACT OF EXTREME OFF-ROADING.
If there’s one car that really, truly got me into cars, it has to be the Porsche 911. I have seen many very good Porsche 911s in my lifetime, but Leh Keen’s off-road-ready Safari 6 911 may just be the best 911 I’ve ever seen. Everything about this build is absolute perfection.
Remember car camping with your family? Most of us have trucked a Volvo/Ford Explorer/Chevy Tahoe from the ’burbs to a designated parking space in the woods for a few nights of bug bites and bonding time. The EarthCruiser takes that idea way, way further off the grid.
Nope, it’s not a “Colorado-inspired” body kit wrapped around a space frame. Well, actually, it pretty much is at this point. But this seriously extreme off-road truck started life as a regular-ass crew cab Chevy Colorado.
In the crowded metropolis of Hong Kong lives a man who knows more about off-road vehicles than possibly anyone else on earth. He has raced the Dakar Rally, torn apart priceless vehicles just to see how they work, written a book called The 4x4 Bible, and taught off-roading skills to locals. His name is Victor Ma, and…
The mighty Russian work truck outfit Kamaz has been winning the world’s toughest races in downright ridiculously large vehicles for what feels like forever. Here’s a close look at one of these snow monsters in action.
This video is pretty much a PSA on “great ways to hurt yourself,” but uh, somehow this heavily modified Chevy Silverado manages to survive driving off a loading dock at speed. Do not try this in your stock Raptor. Or anything else, for that matter.
When your UTV loses a front wheel in the Glamis sand dunes you could either wait for a recovery vehicle or, apparently, stick a human counterweight on the opposite side of your buggy and carry on. Something tells me this strategy is not exactly OSHA-approved.
Racing cars in Mexico is fun, it’s exciting, it’s hard work, and sometimes it burns so badly it’ll leave you sobbing in a bathroom begging for death. And I’m not talking about the Montezuma’s Revenge—or at least not just that.
Good morning race fans! The 2017 Baja 500 is underway, motorcycles are storming the course and the fastest four-wheeled vehicles will be following close behind soon enough. We leave the starting line around mid-day. Meanwhile, here’s where to keep tabs on the action live.
