Video: Group B Rally Legends In Action. Legendary!

If you are of a certain age, as I am, then the Group B rally cars of the early 80s are the n’est plus ultra of anything driven by an internal combustion engine on four wheels. Packing unlimited horsepower into econobox based hot hatches with all wheel drive and minimum weight these cars were then [...]

The 2010 Ford Mustang Plays in the Dirt

The 2010 Ford Mustang Plays in the Dirt

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – the Ford Mustang is one of the most varied and versatile sports cars on the planet. Find me another car that’s just as sharp on a road course as it is sitting in your sister’s parking space in high school. Or tearing up a handful of [...]

Block Breaks His Own Record at Concord Pond

Block Breaks His Own Record at Concord Pond

There’s been a lot of talk about whether Ken Block could stand up against world rally champ 40 times over, Sebastien Loeb. Most of verdicts say Block is nothing more than a showman – good for gymkhana displays of car control and little else. Thing is, when the guy isn’t pimping DC Shoes like they’ll [...]

Stillen’s Rocking Targa Newfoundland

Stillen’s Rocking Targa Newfoundland

The mad wrenches at Stillen have worked up one helluva Nissan GT-R to tackle this year’s Targa Newfoundland. The team’s doing great so far thanks to a massive amount of testing and R&D pre-race. Leg three finished up yesterday and included everything from wide-open stretches of tarmac to a few technical bits through residential sections. [...]

Video Battle: Gronholm Vs. Millen

Alright, so I know you’ve probably had more Fiesta than any one human should be submitted to, but good Rhys Millen has dropped a video of his record-breaking two wheel-drive Pikes Peak run on the interwebs. The flick is dripping with cinematic ooo-gooeyness, complete with sunrise sideways action. The question is, how does it stack [...]

Video: Marcus Gronholm’s Ford Fiesta Pikes Peak Run

While Marcus Gronholm’s Olsbergs MSE team mate, Andreas Eriksson cut his Pikes Peak attempt short just a couple of miles in, the World Rally Master Champion did complete the course even though a blown turbo just 500 feet shy of the finish scuppered any chance of a win. The good folks at Ford Racing filmed [...]

Video: Ford’s 800 Horse Pikes Peak Fiesta

You know, 800 horsepower is a lot of gusto for a car this size. It’s really easy to rattle off that number without an eye toward just what that means. These days, 800 ponies isn’t all that big of a deal, especially in light of the tuning scene’s ever-present quest for loftier dyno specs. The [...]

Hells Yes: WRC Coverage Returns

I still remember the last time the WRC was broadcast here in the states. The championship was banished to the wee hours of the morning on Speed TV, ousted by more NASCAR coverage than should be humanly possible. I would blow off assignments and take up camp on the couch, viciously defending the remote from [...]

Video: Why We Love Rally

There are as many forms of motorsport out there as there are walks of life on this planet, but for me few come close to matching the marvel of rally. And among those that take it to dirt, gravel, snow and tarmac, nothing says rally like the WRC. Recent years have seen the championship lose [...]

Video: Patrick Sinjers at the 1988 Manx Rally

In the halls of BMW lore, the debate over which M3 is best of them all is never-ending. My personal opinion? The E30 takes the cake. Sure there are faster rigs out there, cars that are more comfortable and more powerful, but the E30 M3 is my cup of tea up one side and down [...]

The competition will take racers from over 50 countries through 5,300 miles of Atacama Desert and Andes mountain passes. The [...]
