If you were lucky to check out the movie Pacific Rim this past summer then odds are you know who Idris Elba is. His character was the head honcho in the film and honestly, he was pretty damn good in it. What I didn’t know about Idris was that he (like most of us) has an insatiable love for speed. Recently he filmed a 2 part series aptly called “King of Speed” and like his film, this also was pretty damn good. Check it out after the jump.

Mario Andretti

I doubt very much that there is anyone out there who does not remember their first car. Mine was a 1981 Mercury Capri, a car that was, shall we say, less than stunning. Mario Andretti’s first car was a bit different. You see this guys been racing since he popped out of the womb. Therefore it should come as no surprise that he was pretty excited to be reunited with the first car he ever raced – this old Hudson. Check it out after the jump.

Grass Kart Racing

When I was a kid my father built me a go-kart out of wood, a few wheels from the hardware store and a piece of rope. It was a blast of a ride and as a young kid, the fastest thing I’d ever been on. It seems that fznowadays though home built rigs like that are few and far between, which is why I got so excited to see the following video. Sometimes all it takes is a hill, a little ingenuity and the will to go fast.

Motorcycle Fails

Loading a motorcycle into the back of a pickup truck, van or even onto a trailer can sometimes be a bit of a task. I used to do this on a daily basis back in my track days and I’d be lying if I said I’ve never had a mishap. The following video takes us through 10 loading fails that could’ve and should’ve been avoided.

VARA Racing

If you were to do a search for “Race Cars for Sale” you may be surprised at what you’d find. You see when these cars outlive their performance life cycle they’re generally sold off to the highest bidder. VARA is an organization that promotes the restoration and continued running of vintage race cars in a series that is all about having a good time. Honestly, after watching this, it makes me want to go out and buy something old and crusty just for the helluva it. Click through and check it out.

Fast Hearst

Trying to get an early ’90s Chevrolet Caprice wagon to achieve any kind of speed is pretty much an exercise in futility. Grab one that’s been given added weight by transforming it into a hearse though, and well, you’ve really got your work cut out for you. When faced with this dilemma, most enthusiasts would’ve run for the hills. Not the guys at AMS Tuned though, as they not only got their big whale of a wagon to move, but they got it to run 160 mph at the Chicago WannaGoFast 1/2 mile!

However the only ones who are laughing now are the guys over at RedBull. They not only support, but help grow just about every extreme sporting event known to man. They’re marketing superstars and a brand that every athlete strives to be a part of. Check it out after the jump.

Plymouth Fury

The 24 Hours of Lemons is a race series here in the U.S. that pits $500 cars against each other in a test of speed and endurance. Most competitors go the light and quick route by showing up in an old Mazda Miata or an old 3-Series BMW. However there are those (like the guys from RoadKill) who decided to go a different route. Instead of light and fast, they chose heavy and slow by way of a 1973 Plymouth Fury. Check it out after the jump.
