The Cost of Online Racing

The Cost of Online Racing

Let’s be honest here. I’m broke, I’m in my early 20’s and I live with my parents for the reason I just mentioned. However. All of my life I wanted to be a racing driver, and while my driving skill is not atrocious, it’s not enough for me to actually…

Build Race Party sends Virgin to Rolex 24

Build Race Party sends Virgin to Rolex 24

That’s right, I said virgin. No, not the kind of virgin you are usually thinking of, a virgin of the Rolex 24hr at Daytona. It was quite amazing, even for someone who is mostly known for his rally and drifting exploits. I arrived only about an hour or so before the…

Endurance racing: “What makes those numbers glow?”

Endurance racing: “What makes those numbers glow?”

It was 11:30 PM as I shook-off my drunken stupor. A loud, raspy scream coming from beyond the trees drew me closer to the edge and it was then that I saw the orangish-yellowish glow… Have you watched an endurance race and seen those wild, glowing numbers on sides of…

James Hunt Replica Helmet

James Hunt Replica Helmet

How cool is this helmet? I think the Build Race Party house needs one of these for sure. $500! but man its cool.  I’m sure its a modern helmet but it does sort of look retro. But I get the feeling the real 1976 helmet looks even more 1970s. Here’s…
