The World Endurance Championship, might be the new king. Formula 1 will forever keep my interest. It has its ups and downs and the allure of the best drivers and teams is too hard to ignore. However, the WEC is starting to steer my interests elsewhere. A few things are needed for series to enter into […]
Audi testing its R18 E-Tron Longtail at Monza. Sounds like a frickin jet. 212mph cornering speeds. jebus.
Images of Eleanor’s junkyard scene flash before my eyes. Sad scene.
Only the Gulf livery would make this more awesome.
After recently viewing this Porsche vs. Juke R, I realized how fuckin awesome slow mo footage is. So I’ve added the best slow motion autoracing videos out there.
Nothing quite compares to a rotary. Mazda will be at Le Mans next year in the LMP2 catagory (albiet in a Lola, not a Mazda chassis) with a turbo deisel. I have a feeling it will not sound as good as this.
Big crashes caused by a Ferrari. This is almost a carbon copy of Rockenfeller’s crash last year. A Ferrari not watching his mirrors, chopping the rear of a front runner LMP1. Anthony Davidson is luckily ok after this shunt. Rockenfeller’s crash from 2011.
There are promo vids, then there’s this. God damn, Audi knows how to make videos. Also cool how Quattro is running at Le Mans. The front wheels are driven by electric motors, but only at speed above 120km/h.
I’ve been waiting on this for a while now. The first shots of Toyota’s new Hybrid LMP1 car were revealed this morning. This was unfortunately met with the news that Peugeot will cease operations of their Le Mans program immediately. 🙁
The all-time greatest nameplate in autoracing (Fuck Ferrari) will be back at Le Mans for the overal crown. Not sure if running a gas engine against the Audi and Peugeot deisels are a good idea but if anyone can win Le Mans, it’s the guys from Weissach.
This is footage of mike Rockenfeller’s crash. 190+mph into a gaurdrail is not the way you want to end your 24 Hours of Le Mans. He’s fine by the way.
Huge shunt involving the Audi of Allan McNish. He’s fine. But the race is once again under caution for another huge crash (even worse than this one) involving the Audi of Mike Rockenfeller and a Ferrari 458.
Don’t ever think race car drivers aren’t athletes.
As awesome as the R18 and 908 look, their engine notes leave something to be desired. Luckily the Porsches and Aston Martin’s pick up the slack.
