While watching the FIFA World Cup a few weeks ago, my boss noticed players sitting in race car seats, and ordered me to figure out why. So I reached out to one of the biggest race car seat manufacturers, Recaro. Here’s what I learned.
A college baseball team desperate to play ball had no problem lifting a double parked car blocking the street out of the way.
On Friday Aston Martin unveiled the $359,950 Vanquish S Volante Tom Brady Signature Edition, a ridiculous car targeted, I guess, at rich people with no taste who love the Patriots. (Come to think of it, that’s probably a very large market.) Anyway, here come the bad jokes.
The new story of Detroit is, by now, old. Over several decades, a once prosperous automotive mecca fell into disarray for a litany of reasons—white flight, an eroding tax base, crime—and, after filing for bankruptcy in 2013, has since evolved into a sentimental comeback story for the ages. When a new arena for the…
“That escalated quickly.” I know it’s a cliché, albeit a fitting one for a hill climb race. But it’s all I could think about after our car—a salvage-title C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 street car transformed into a race car in just a few desperate weeks—not only survived the Pikes Peak Hill Climb but finished just one…
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb makes its return this weekend and if qualifying is a preview of what’s to come, it looks like records will be broken once again. The action kicks off tomorrow morning, so here’s how to watch.
James Hillier looked like he was headed for a fifth-gear wipeout at the deadly dangerous Isle of Man TT when his bike got sideways on a jump early in the race. Incredibly, Hillier was able to hold on and steady the wildly bucking motorcycle (extra points for the leg wave) and continue on its way.
I love surprises. Underdog stories. The unexpected. It’s part of why sports are good. That is, unless I picked guy-who-wins-too-much Sébastien Ogier in The Rally Takeover’s Fantasy World Rally Championship game. Then don’t surprise me, or I’ll get mad when lesser-known drivers actually make things interesting.
Are sports games not your thing? Or, perhaps, are you too disappointed with the world around you to even pay attention to them—or anything else, really? This guy, too. Things appear to be so bad, in fact, that he deliberately brought in the owner’s manual for his Volvo and read it during a basketball game.
The University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech have apparently been trying to arrange a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway, located between the schools, for some 20 years. Now it’s finally going to happen, after 19 days of intense preparation. Which you can watch here in about six minutes.
Apparently the Russian military has a sense of humor and some spare fuel to burn! Somebody let these goofballs hook tow ropes to a treaded BMP-1 war machine and ride through what looks like an army training range.
Forget parachuting from space, nothing captures the blistering speed and the lurking presence of death like a high-speed drop down a mountain chute. Watch what it's like to ski down the Earth's frozen ass crack from the perspective of world-class winter athlete Cody Townsend.
Chevy Rep Rikk Wilde was a little nervous presenting the World Series MVP award on Wednesday, stammering through a slogan for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado he made up on the spot; "technology and stuff." But after the phrase and #ChevyGuy started trending on Twitter, the company went ahead and ran with it.
Airbus has announced that it will collaborate with the defending champion of the America's Cup, Oracle Team USA to design the next yacht for the team. But why would a company that designs and builds commercial jets want to get into the sport of yacht racing? It makes more sense than you might think.
Ken Block's RaptorTRAX just became the coolest sled on the slopes of Nelson, British Colombia. It's finally getting used for what it was built to do: make the mountain its bitch and take snowsports to the next-6.2-V8-powered-level as the ultimate backcountry snowboard chariot.
Yes, you can pitch a ball right through the open windows of a moving Scion FR-S.
The timeless, Twinky-esque beauty of a classic Airstream trailer is even sweeter with a US Men's World Cup Team wrap job.
Los Angeles is totally jacked up over their Stanley Cup victory just a few days ago, and might have had the coolest "trophy transport truck" of any sports victory parade I've seen.
You know what the young Youths these days love? That's right, soccer. And you know where they live? That's right, Greenpoint, Brooklyn. And you know what they drive? The Audi A8, with a base MSRP of $75,100. So Audi just installed a giant scoreboard made up of 28 of them in (where else) Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
