RJ Anderson’s XP1K4: WTF!

RJ Anderson’s XP1K4: WTF!

XP1K4 may be the 4th in the series, but it’s outstanding. I watched it three times before typing this up. Its that good. Normally I grow tired of these types of videos. They get repetitive. All I really want to see is an amazing driver do some cool stuff. Zp1K4…
Corvette C6 Z06 and Toyota Supra Snow Drift!

Corvette C6 Z06 and Toyota Supra Snow Drift!

I love this video! Two cars that shouldn’t be racing on snow, a Corvette C6 Z06 and a Toyota Supra, are ripping down a snow banked road somewhere in Russia. Yes Russia. But most of the awesome or really bizarre car videos are from Russia if you haven’t figured this out by…

Forza LRP – Presidential Edition

Here you see a Presidental limo reverse drifting around Lime Rock Park.  This video, released in a short clip, has fooled people into thinking it’s real with Forza 6’s realistic graphics.  If it were real, this driver would have some serious skill!  The most obvious tell might just be the…

GT3RS on Snow – Only in Russia!

GT3RS on Snow – Only in Russia!

I don’t think I’ve seen a GT3RS on snow before! This video could be a lot better but its pretty interesting. The owner is having some financial difficulties and sold his house and some of his cars and is now living in his garage. But he won’t sell his GT3RS! And…
Toro Rosso Hits The Ski Slopes

Toro Rosso Hits The Ski Slopes

I love that Formula Teams put on fun promotional events like this. Toro Rosso put Max Verstappen into a Red Bull show car to race through a specially designed section of the legendary Streif ski course in Kitzbuhel, Austria. Of course they shot video which is below. The course was set up a…
Journey To LeMans

Journey To LeMans

 You’ve seen the Truth in 24hr, but I’ve doubt you’ve seen this! You can thank me later because its good. Instead of following a top team like Audi, you follow a privateer competing at the highest level. The footage is amazing as you can see by the screen grabs from…

Lewis Hamilton Makes Music

Lewis Hamilton Makes Music

Lewis Hamilton was on 60 Minutes last night and he talked about something other than winning the F1 Driver’s Championship. Lewis now makes music. This is what you do when you win too many times. Jacque Villeneuve did it. Well Those are the only two I can think of. The…

The 3 Best Nurburgring In Car Videos

The 3 Best Nurburgring In Car Videos

This is a tough post as there is a ton of incredible footage from the famous Nurburgring. There are also some faster laps that either weren’t filmed or uploaded to the web. There are also some slower laps that are way more fun or crazy to watch like the last…
How To Stuff Your BMW In 4K!

How To Stuff Your BMW In 4K!

I’m surprised the car isn’t more damaged after running straight into a wall high in second gear. I feel bad for the guy but you can see it coming the moment he gets on the throttle. I also know it’s not nice to make fun of people but man he…
Porsche 918 vs. LaFerrari Vs. McLaren P1

Porsche 918 vs. LaFerrari Vs. McLaren P1

You have to love Chris Harris. The man can drive but he’s also gathered enough respect to request cars like a LaFerrari or McLaren P1 for a track test and comparison. He’s driven all three but never back to back. Never on the same track. Any idea which car is…
1978 Motorsport Documentary

1978 Motorsport Documentary

I just found this on Jalopnik and felt it was worth sharing. Im still not entirely sure what it is, but I know its interesting and its footage that I’ve never seen before. It also covers a pretty cool year in F1 so you get to see Lauda, Andretti, Regazzoni, Hunt,…

Russian Dash Cam: Car Jumps To Death

Russian Dash Cam: Car Jumps To Death

This is one of the worst Russian dash cam crashes that I’ve seen. It’s especially bad because the driver of the car died on impact. The police report suggest that the oncoming driver lost control of the car when his left front tire had a massive blow out. He must…

Racing in the Rain

Racing in the Rain

Their is a first time for everything in life, and if you race you will eventually race in the rain (even if you live in Southern California).  With no prior wet racing experience i found myself soaked and on the starting line for the main event.   Starting 5th in class…
“Adrenalin” – The official BMW Touring Car Story

“Adrenalin” – The official BMW Touring Car Story

I always wondered why BMW never put out a video on their touring car history. Ive read the BMW touring books which are amazing, but nothing is better for race cars than video! And BMW finally made one! It’s a called ADRENALIN – THE BMW TOURING CAR STORY. It’s about charismatic…
“I Was Just driving”

“I Was Just driving”

Robert Kubica wasn't born rally driver but take a look at this video from Monte Carlo a week ago and you would never know he drove those fancy Formula One deals. He was hustling all weekend and sure he had some off's, but his pace seemed way faster than previous…

Nicky Grist is one of the top Co-drivers of all time. He has ridden with the best of them. And here he is explaining how to co drive. He covers all the basics. Even reading maps for old school style rallies. But he also covers traditional notes and everything in between.…
Supercharged Grand Prix Cars 1924-1939

Supercharged Grand Prix Cars 1924-1939

Some say this is the golden era of Grand Prix cars and I know very little about the period. I know Auto Union and Mercedes battled in those giant monsters in the 1930’s, but no real appreciation for how we got there.  Or where Bugatti came from or why the…
“Dear God” by Ari Vatanen

“Dear God” by Ari Vatanen

Rally co-drivers are as tough as they come. Fearless. They climb into the passenger seat of caged race cars and let a madman fly down a road he’s never seen before. They do this all the time. Its normal for them to take a jump in a car and never…
