Recently I got to take Cadillac’s CTS-V all over some of my favorite Texas Hill Country roads. It was great, but that was only part of the story. The real reason I was driving the CTS-V was to test out the $1,600 optional Performance Data Recording system that Cosworth developed for Cadillac. They not only use this in…
Plenty of manufacturers invite folks out to play with their cars. The usual experience typically involves a driver briefing, a product walk-around, then a few lead follow laps before cutting loose with an instructor in the right seat — with a bit of babysitting and not a lot of truly hard laps. BMW does things a…
This weekend, a pack of IMSA’s best took to the Raceway at Belle Isle Park, and I was on the ground to cover the action. There were plenty of fast cars just begging to be photographed, so, naturally, I did.
Any sports car race weekend packs the track with an awesome variety of machines. Over the past weekend, the IMSA WeatherTech race came to Circuit of The Americas for the fourth time, with Wayne Taylor Racing winning their fourth straight race overall in the Cadillac DPi-V.R.
Once again, Marc Márquez dominated the Circuit of The Americas, proving that he is your God and scoring a fifth straight victory in Austin. While Rossi and Pedrosa put up a fight during the race, it seemed there was no doubt the Spaniard would continue blowing away the field in America.
The 2017 Genesis G80 Ultimate is like upper-management accommodations at a middle-management price. The 420 horsepower V8 makes you a nice shortcut up the corporate ladder, but you don’t have to be a working stiff to appreciate this car.
If you’re cool (and rich) enough in Aston Martin’s book, you can get invited to purchase the limited edition faster toys they offer. We all saw the Vulcan launched in 2015 as a sign that Aston Martin wasn’t going to go all hybrid on us to achieve a proper track machine, and did so with over 800 horsepower from a…
In the past week, I wandered off to Los Angeles, mainly to take my girlfriend there for her first time, but also because I dig hanging out on the West Side. I used to live there, and while Austin is where I belong these days, LA’s everyday car scene can’t be beat.
The 2017 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona was my first time covering a 24-hour race. A massive field, a giant track, 20 cautions, and a million pit stops. Endurance races are not for the weak, whether you’re on a team or covering it.
Yes, I’m still awake, and still shooting away. We’re halfway home, and I figured it’s time to share some highlights from the first 12 hours in Daytona.
Only two days on the ground so far, but a ton of cool pics to share. This is just a hint of what’s to come, when I’ll be on the ground all day starting Saturday morning, and all the way through the Rolex 24. Enjoy!
Having owned three different generations of the Honda Civic Si, two S2000s, and one Integra Type-R, you could say I have some passion for Honda’s cars. Like everyone with a pulse and a passion for cars, I was bummed Honda didn’t ship the Civic Type-R stateside, and always wanted to drive one. Each Gran Turismo version…
Since 2013, Circuit of The Americas has hosted a mega race weekend in September that combines two big IMSA series with FIA World Endurance Championship. Fans are treated to a long weekend, packed full of epic racing and a great deal of Texas heat and humidity.
Thanks to the Russian motherland for yet another dash cams gem.
