Benicia, California: Another year, another tally mark on the wall of life. In many ways, 2014 had been the worst year of my life, so I was happy when January 1st, 2015 came around. I was nearing the end of my 1980 CB650 build, and on a rainy January night I rolled it outside in […]
Imagine this: a hell of a lot of prototypes that rarely resemble anything you see elsewhere on the track featuring various engine layouts with more than 1000 hp each who all race in one single event among different classes over the course of six hours. That’s FIA WEC – an impressive endurance race series which dwarfs […]
I met German photographer Marcel Langer in Sweden on the Road to Gatebil over the summer, and since then we’ve become friends. He asked if he could be a Guest Blaster and share this piece about the Nürburgring Drift Cup. As an added bonus, it’s all in German. I hope you’ve brushed up on your dies, […]
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 […]

Especially the part they call the Nordschleife, […]

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.
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.

In the small town of Stanwood, located in northwest Washington between Seattle and the Canadian border, one can find an overwhelming Scandinavian presence. Aside from the Sons of Norway hall and street names like Lindstrom and Jensen, there are a number of quirkier indications of its early settlers’ roots. One of the more obvious signs […]
