The poor No. 55 Mazda Prototype had a master cylinder issue that left it stranded on Circuit of the Americas’ pit straight. Normally, this would be a quick retrieval given that everyone’s right there staring at the car, but it triggered a 28 minute red flag as the car was too low to get it off the track. CamberGang…
Practice for the World Endurance Championship season opener, the 6 Hours of Silverstone, was halted for an unusual reason in April: snow! Of course, every image coming out of the snow delay is wonderful in a particularly surreal way. Behold: Britain’s winter wonderland.
Scuderia Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz paused qualifying for the United States Grand Prix with 12 minutes and 46 seconds to go in the 18-minute session after he lost control of his car in the slippery conditions and ate the barrier in Turn 4.
Yesterday, you may have seen a rabbit on the loose during NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice. In case you missed it, Fox Sports released the hilarious broadcast clip from the bunny delay. If there’s anything you should’ve learned from Monty Python, it’s that rabbits should never be taken lightly.
Red Flag is an exercise held in three to four cycles each year which aims to provide realistic combat simulations for American and allied air crews. Half of those simulations come at night, and when the combat jets soar through the air, the resulting timelapse video, like this one posted at The Aviationist, or this…
Foxtrot Alpha’s contacts in Europe have noticed some interesting movements heading west out of the Middle East. Apparently, five Israeli Air Force F-15C/Ds and five F-15Is, along with five Jordanian Air Fore F-16s, have been dragged across the Mediterranean to Lajes Field by Israeli Air Force KC-707 Tankers. The jets…
Red flags are a bummer. Having a one-on-one conversation with your favorite driver, not so much. This dude isn’t crazy. He’s smart. (Well, until NASCAR chases him off, whatever.)
Thankfully, no one was hurt in a rare, but frightening accident where an out-of-control NASCAR race car slammed into the pit wall at Pocono Raceway. Kasey Kahne got loose coming out of turn 3 at the track, spinning into the pit lane itself.
NASCAR had a red flag of its own today when the Sprint Cup race at Sonoma Raceway had to be stopped briefly to repair the tire barrier that Martin Truex Jr.’s car annihilated.
Standing water forced United SportsCar to red-flag today’s 6 Hours of The Glen for a brief period. In the meantime, drivers were huddling in their cars on pit lane, trying to stay warm.
Today’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race was briefly red-flagged for wet conditions. How wet was it? Here’s a tractor attempting in vain to fling water over the barrier.
Formula E briefly halted their practice session today after Sam Bird’s car lost its wheel, sending the wheel rolling down the track.
When Ford's head honcho Mark Fields debuted the new Lincoln Continental, he said the car was aimed at China, and he stated the brand had only entered the Chinese car market last November. That's not quite right, though Lincoln might wish you'd forget about it.
The first two Red Flag aerial war games of the year have come to a close. Both saw US air combat units combine with allied ones from around the globe to work as a team to take on the staunch defenses laid out across the vast Nellis Range Complex, including enemy SAM sites and F-16s and F-15s masquerading as enemy…
V8 Supercars' second race for the day of the Sydney NRMA 500 has just been red flagged on lap 45 due to torrential downpours. It's a complete mess out there with too much standing water for even wet tires to deal with. Flooding has been reported in pit lane.
Are you an extremely wealthy Chinese oligarch and/or party official? Is a Ferrari FF too loud and garish for your liking? Do you long for the good old days when Mao was in charge and people knew their place? Have we got a car for you!
I shot this in the desert a few miles north east of Nellis AFB during RED FLAG exercises, which the Air Force calls the "premier air-to-air combat training exercise," pitting pilots against one another in a massive simulation.
