PROLOGUE When I was in second grade, my classmates and I “wrote” books about ourselves. I use the term loosely because really we just filled out forms for each page. One of my pages was, “I want to go to Asia because I have never been there .” That way of thinking is at the […]
Gatebil at Rudskogen in July is often billed as the biggest drifting festival in the world, but really it’s so much more than that. In addition to watching drifting, spectators can get rides with drivers or hire one of the Gatebil drift taxis, peruse the various vendor booths, load up on more food and drink […]
The Belgian rally season traditionally kicks off with the Legend Boucles de Spa. In fact it has marked the beginning of each season since 1953, when it was named ‘Rallye des Routes Blanches.’ After 2004 the rally was no longer part of the Belgian and European Rally Championship, however it has become one of the […]
At the opening round of the 2015 VLN Endurance Championship, the unimaginable happened. British driver Jann Mardenborough lost control of his Nissan GT-R GT3 at the fast Quiddelbacher Höhe section followed by the Flugplatz.

New York; most people love New York, the sights & sounds, the people. It’s one of those cities that to some people never gets old.

Guys like Sébastien Ogier, Thierry Neuville, Jari-Matti Latvala and the rest were working out the kinks in their Huyndais and Volkswagens against the scenic background of Rhineland vineyards. Have a look.
Ninety years ago some clever men decided that the rural area of the Eifel needed a race track so the local races would no longer need to be held on public roads in the dangerous Eifel Mountains. The 28.265 km long race track around the town of Nürburg quickly became Germany’s most famous racetrack.
Most of you probably know Bill Caswell, the man who took a $500 Craiglist BMW E30 to the Mexican round of the World Rally Championship. Many exciting racing adventures followed, but there was still one challenge that he hasn’t tackled yet: Racing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The 24h Nürburgring Qualifying Race is an all-new event organized by the ADAC Nordrhein. The main objective of this race is to give the drivers and teams an optimum testing opportunity before the 24h Race in June. Over the weekend the teams had 15 hours on the track for testing and adjusting their cars under […]
