Drift Idiot

There’s no shame in admitting that I am not, and never shall be a drift expert. In fact if my cars are going sideways, then the odds of me doing something wrong at that moment are pretty damn good. Corey Hosford from DriftIdiot though, is a professional drifter, and a damn good one at that. In his recent exploits he’s teamed up with the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving to see just how good their cars are for going sideways.

RUSH Ron Howard

Tom Cruise

It must be nice being Tom Cruise, as not only are you a world famous movie star, but you’re granted access to some of the greatest toys the planet has to offer. For instance, showing up to Willow Springs Raceway in a Red Bull helicopter (Tom is flying of course) and then having the chance to jump into a million dollar Formula 1 car for some quick laps. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not jealous (yes I am) but I’ve think I’ve chosen to follow the wrong line of work.

Porsche Le Mans 1971

Posted in 24 Hours of LeMons, History, Porsche, Racing, Videos by Dustin Driver | April 28th, 2013 | 1 Response |

1971 Martini Porsche 917

Porsche is getting ready for its return to Le Mans in 2014. And it wants to remind you all that in 1971 it thoroughly and properly kicked ass. The monstrous 240-mile-an-hour 917 took first and second places, setting multiple records along the way. Oh, and 10 of the 13 cars that finished that year were Porsches.

In 1971 Porsche built the first magnesium-framed 917. The delicate birdcage of highly flammable and ultra-lightweight metal weighed just 42 kilograms, or 92 pounds. The frame was swathed in gossamer sheets of flowing fiberglass and perspex and given menacing tail fins. Then Porsche gingerly installed their latest creation: A magnesium and titanium air-cooled flat 12 good for more than 600 horsepower. The results were positively manic. Click through to see a highlight reel from the season, featuring the tarmac-swallowing, fire-breathing, time-warping 917.

Alexander Rossi

If you were to ask any professional racing driver if they were afraid of any car, the probability of them saying “Yes” would be very small. Alexander Rossi, the reserve driver for the Caterham F1 Team is no exception. At 22-years old he’s one of the youngest in the sport and looks to have a long, fruitful career ahead of him. However just for shits and giggles Rossi was recently given the opportunity to climb behind the wheel of a machine that was 24 years his senior. The car was Jim Clark’s 1967 Lotus 49, and while new to Rossi, he wasted no time in flogging it around the new Circuit of the America’s in Austin, TX. Check out Road & Track’s video below.
