The Clipsal 500 at Adelaide is a formidable race to make a series debut at. The old guns of Holden and Ford are up for any challengers. NIssan and Mercedes were easily dispelled in their first season last year. I had figured Volvo S60 would be in the same boat this year, but after Race […]
James Courtney escaped from major injuries this weekend after Alexander Premat plowed into the side of his car. Not much blamed can be put on Premat though. Once you leave the track at that speed at that corner, you’re pretty much a passenger.
No where else do these V8s looks more on the edge for an entire lap. Bathurst has its section at the top of the mountain and at the bottom of the Chase where they look very unstable but nothing like Pukekohe’s constant
The Aussies (And Kiwis, in this case) know their burnouts. Shane Van Gisbergen puts on a smoke show after yesterdays Clipsal 500 win.
Before looking into the event itself. Lets look at the changes to the V8 Supercars for the 2013 season. They look similar on the outside but many changes went into this new generation. Introduction to the new season. Highlights from qualifying and Shane Van Gisbergen’s Pole lap. Sloooooooooooooowwwwww Moooootion.
It was perplexing at the time. A 26 year old at the top pf his game, quit the game. MotoGP’s Casey Stoner decided he was home sick. He is now tackling 4 wheels via V8 Supercars. He will make his debut in the V8 development series. His first practice session, at Adelaide no less, resulted […]
Pre Season testing for the V8 folks. I have no idea how to predict this season. All new cars (even though they look similar to last years), 2 new manufacturers (in Nissan and Mercedes), and new teams and sponsors. I’d say its hard to bet against the yardstick in Triple 8 Race Engineering, now with […]
All sorts of styles. To each his own. Left foot braking, heel toe, clutchless. What ever works. I don’t even want to know what brake temps are like on WRC after a tarmac stage. And only Senna makes it look so easy with loafers.
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.
Ok, it’ll be nowhere near as devastating as the original R32 Godzilla, but Nissan is BACK. This is video from their shakedown of the new Altima V8 Super. I’ll wait on what Mercedes has in store before I pick my team for 2013.
Habitual whiner Bourdais and the old gun Mika Salo duel it out at Surfer’s Paradise. And an additional nive moce by Heidfeld at the end.
Manufacturers….manufacturers EVERYWHERE!!! DTM and Super GT have announced that both of their regulation packages will be based on this years DTM specs. What does this mean? The possibility of Nissan, Toyota (Lexus) and Honda facing of with Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi in DTM events and visa versa. This also makes both series more attractive to […]
An awesome save by Van Gisbergen then a HARD crash with Davision crashing into Whincup. I’m sad that I do not watch more of this.
A few slow-mo clips on this weekends Clipsal 500 and support races.
Sorry for the lack of post the last few days. Thought, maybe a writeup was in order….. I spend alot of my time on racing simulations. I say simulation and not game because the driving environments you’re now being thrown into are used by professional drivers to not only sharpen their skills but to learn […]
Speedtv for the first time in frickin who knows how long had something good on (live). I knew when it was on….and yet I managed to miss the start. Which I was ok with. Then 3 laps from the end I fell asleep 🙁 (it was like 2am). But this is what I missed. EPIC. […]
Going sideways at 200 kmph is another day at work for Shane Van Gisbergen.
