If there’s anywhere I wouldn’t want to brag about getting away with anything, it’s Singapore—a country so strict, it banned chewing gum. However, yet again, someone made it onto the track at Singapore when they weren’t supposed to. At least they ventured out there while the race wasn’t running this time.
Please cue the delightful wordsmith of our time, Xzibit: yo dawg, I heard you like Texas, so we put the University of Texas’ mascot inside Texas on top of Texas. Because Texas.
Josef Newgarden became IndyCar’s youngest champion in over a decade and the series’ first American champ in five years. Newgarden had the most number of wins this season, so the championship fits. This was Newgarden’s first year with Team Penske. At age 26, he’s the fresh young face IndyCar needed to win.
The first wet Formula One Singapore Grand Prix in history started with a bang. Max Verstappen’s Red Bull car became the filling in a messy Ferrari sandwich at the start of Sunday’s race. Whoever handles Ferrari’s Twitter account tried to place the blame on Max only to get put right in his place by ex-Red Bull F1…
IndyCar’s season finale today at Sonoma is going to be insane for one incredible reason: seven different drivers could win the championship. Seven! Sonoma is a double-points race which racing legend A.J. Foyt accurately called a “gimmick” in Autoweek, but that gimmick means that the entire top seven has to bring their…
Who’s going to provide Red Bull with Formula One engines when Renault drops the team after 2018? We don’t know! But Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner is willing to say who it won’t be, or so he says. Either way, this is the worst game of 20 Questions I’ve ever seen.
You may have taken home a chunk of car from a race weekend before. Spare canards. Chunks of carbon fiber. That’s neat and all, but did you take home a Ferrari door? Because this dude took home a Ferrari door from one of the Ferrari Challenge races this weekend at Circuit of the Americas.
Porsche is owning their final year in the World Endurance Championship’s top LMP1 class. The No. 2 Porsche 919 grabbed its fourth win in a row at the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas in a Porsche 1-2 finish. However, that win wasn’t easy after hours of pure chaos and a rad fight with the Toyota TS050 team.
A wild XJDano appears!
Nothing is over for the LMP1 class just yet, which is set to make big changes following the announcement that Porsche would be leaving the World Endurance Championship. So far in Austin, the battle for ultimate Le Mans prototype domination has been absolutely ruthless in the best way possible.
If you race in Texas and it’s not the dead of winter, you should probably pack a kiddie pool in with your car, spares, tools and other race weekend things. It’s always hot and muggy, and if you just drove a sweaty stint in a six-hour endurance race, why not hop in the pool afterwards to cool off?
A bus driver took a wrong turn yesterday and accidentally ended up out on track at Circuit of the Americas’ Turn 6, halting a Formula 4 support race for the Lone Star Le Mans weekend. Oops!
When Formula One switched to a smaller, quieter engine, many fans reacted as if they had just switched to spec Toyota Priuses. The message was loud and clear: we love noise. Fortunately, one of F1's main feeder series still brings the roar loud and clear: the World Series Formula V8 3.5. Holy crap, it is glorious.
The World Endurance Championship has a strange two-year-long season next year as it transitions to a winter schedule that ends with Le Mans. Now they’ve confirmed the final date on that calendar: the 6 Hours of Silverstone will return on August 29, 2018.
If there’s one thing I’ve gathered from trying to badger various Porsche LMP1 team personnel about what they’re doing next year, it’s that all their energies are focused on going out with another championship until they figure all that out. And holy crap, they are quick.
Are you feeling down? Get up. I mean, physically up. As in, the direction away from the ground. You should jump an incredibly large vehicle into the air. Pretend your huge mud truck is a rocketship and fly! Roam free about the air! Nothing can get you down when you’re up!
Renault will drop Red Bull as an F1 engine customer after 2018, reports Auto Motor und Sport. While that stoked fears that Red Bull might be saddled with Honda as their only engine option, Red Bull hinted to Sky Sports that they have “existing relationship” with a motor manufacturer who can hook them up in Renault’s…
Standout Toro Rosso driver (which isn’t hard to do alongside Daniil Kvyat) Carlos Sainz Jr. will be loaned out to Renault for 2018, the team confirmed today. Sainz’s loan to Renault is widely believed to be the deal that let Toro Rosso end their power unit supply contract with Renault early, so naturally, it was…
For the past three years, Honda has been like the scumbag boyfriend of Formula One. Oooooooh, girllllllll. You’re still with him? He always promises to do so much, but like, never does it. I can’t believe you haven’t kicked his lazy butt to the curb yet! Good news, everyone: McLaren finally announced their split from…
The cat-righting reflex is actually a real thing, spawning the age-old saying that “a cat always lands on its feet.” What I didn’t know is that this massive Ford Explorer monster truck has the same reflex.
