With temperatures hovering in the mid 30s Fahrenheit, and a thin sheen of snow blanketing the grass around the circuit, vintage racers braved the weather at Goodwood to participate in the 76th annual Member’s Meeting vintage races. It’s always risky to take an expensive vintage race car out on the circuit, but this…
I mean, if you think about it, this should make complete sense. The cold never bothers Elsa, anyway. Even so, pushing a stuck Boston police truck out of a snowbank in a blizzard is no picnic, especially in a full gown. Despite the difficulty, this 37-year-old man dressed as a Disney ice princess did manage to get the…
Winter in Canada makes you think pond hockey, hot chocolate or maybe... not going outside at all. But if you have a 2018 Porsche 911 C4S and a frozen skidpad to yourself, trust me, it’s worth braving the cold.
I can’t get enough of this beautiful golden-hour Lada drift session. Here is the Soviets’ most infamous everyman’s car, getting sideways gracefully in the snow.
Local news out of Hazleton, PA shared a few pictures this week of what appears to be a very sad and cold McLaren 650S caught in a snow storm and apparently waiting to be carried home in the protective clutches of a flatbed like a big, beautiful baby.
An intense snowstorm hammered the United Kingdom on Wednesday, leaving hundreds of helpless drivers in Scotland stranded on a roadway overnight.
Formula One’s winter test day at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya was snowed out this morning with no cars on course until the afternoon. For once, we’re not super jealous of the F1 drivers. Open cockpits are awfully drafty. Clearly, the driver sent to do reconnaissance laps had the better job today.
The Porsche Macan may be best known as the demon scourge of the Nordstrom parking lot, but thankfully, some of you Macan drivers are out there proving the little crossover’s worth by getting sideways in the snow.
I’ve never felt that that motorsports really belong in the Olympics. Motorsports and the Olympics are good enough at being endless controversy factories on their own without combining forces, thank you very much. That being said, I’d love to see a Formula One car hoon down the Olympic ski slopes between races, as Red…
The snow and ice along I-44 in Missouri was bad earlier this week, as evidenced by an insane video from Monday showing one woman’s attempt to scramble from her car while slipping in the snow as a semi truck crashes into a pileup, just barely missing her.
The delightful nuts at YouTube’s Shifted Interests channel swapped a 1000 cc Yamaha FZ1 engine into a Smart Fortwo, more than doubling the horsepower and making it a whole lot rowdier. What do you do with such a delightful build in the winter? Snownuts, duh.
Team O’Neil Rally School shared a video recently about the differences between braking with two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, but people complained the test methods were unfair. So, the school tested it again, and drove home their surprising point: A 4WD system can actually brake better than a 2WD one.
I may be a professional race car driver, but my writing gig for Jalopnik doesn’t suck either. (Just don’t tell Patrick that or he’ll take away the peanuts he’s currently paying me.) Case in point: a snowy, hoon-filled test of the new Acura NSX. Is it good to blast a $150,000 hybrid supercar around an empty winter…
NASCAR’s favorite son and driving god Dale Earnhardt Jr. accidentally tapped a tree after a snowstorm that blasted parts of North Carolina. He said he tapped the tree because he was going a bit fast, but consider this, southerners: if Dale Jr. is struggling to keep it under control, maybe it’s not the best time to go…
Montreal police probably rolled their eyes at the idiot who parked their snow-covered early ‘90s Toyota Supra right in a snow-removal lane, completely blocking in other parked cars. They went to ticket the car, and got to the point of lifting its very real windshield wiper when they realized, hey, this isn’t a…
You don’t need tons of horsepower or even a car to go have fun on four wheels in the snow. Case in point: this tractor. If your car is sadly parked and not doing donuts right now, then congratulations, it’s just been out-done by a humble farm implement.
Winter can really get you down, especially when it’s painfully cold outside. Fortunately, this sense of despair can be easily cured through the proper, very sideways use of a neatly plowed parking lot.
The Tesla Model X is an impressive performance machine, one day embarrassing cars at the drag strip and the next helping to pull giant trucks trapped on just the slightest snowy incline.
Much of the northeast is in full winter blast mode, and for reader Tom Lawrowski, that meant it was the perfect weather for his F80-generation BMW M3. Clearly, snow removal is the best use of 444 horsepower.
Parts of the Northeast are getting hammered by frigid temperatures right now, just 24 hours after a winter storm dropped a blanket of snow across several states. Near Boston, some people awoke Friday and found the storm had consumed their cars with ice.
