I Certainly Didn't Expect This Vintage Work Truck To Fly This Well

The video was just titled “Rally Truck Jump.” All of those things are relevant to my interests. I’ll click. I’ll watch. Even if it’s a garbage vertical video, I’m there, dude. I’ll watch all the sweet jumps. But I certainly didn’t expect to see a vintage work truck pretending to be Colin McRae’s Subaru here. Send it!

This Amazing Artist Stayed Awake All Night To Capture The 24 Hours Of Le Mans In 24 Pieces This Amazing Artist Stayed Awake All Night To Capture The 24 Hours Of Le Mans In 24 Pieces

This year, during the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, artist and photographer Jayson Fong sat down to his desk to produce one piece of art for each hour of the race. A motorsport fanatic of the first degree, Jayson’s art is usually quite detailed. For this endeavor, however, he needed to finish a piece quite quickly, and it…

Blame The FIA For How Boring The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Was This Year Blame The FIA For How Boring The 24 Hours Of Le Mans Was This Year

There are a lot of awful rule sets in the world of racing, but this season the ACO and the FIA have combined to produce what is perhaps the worst rule in racing history. While the rule was technically implemented at the 6-hour race at Spa last month, the full extent of its impact on endurance racing was shown in stark…

Corvette drivers Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia, and Mike Rockenfeller took their bright yellow America-on-wheels Chevrolet to fifth in the GTE Pro class, classified 21st overall. They didn’t win, but just surviving Le Mans is enough to warrant a big ‘ole smoke show. Nothing could make me prouder to have been born…

Toyota Wins The 24 Hours Of Le Mans With Precision From Pole Toyota Wins The 24 Hours Of Le Mans With Precision From Pole

After years of trying and failing, the No. 8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid has finally taken the Le Mans victory the team has so desperately wanted. In doing so, Toyota has become only the second Japanese manufacturer in history to win the race overall, following on from Mazda’s 1991 victory. While Audi and Porsche both quit…

The Best Looking 911 Won The 24 Hours Of Le Mans As Porsche Owns Both GT Classes The Best Looking 911 Won The 24 Hours Of Le Mans As Porsche Owns Both GT Classes

Porsche celebrated its 70th anniversary this year with utter domination of both GT classes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Porsche’s beloved “pink pig” livery finally redeemed itself with a commanding win of LMGTE Pro, and that’s on top of the No. 77 Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche 911 RSR winning the LMGTE Am class.

Second Place Toyota Slows Suddenly In Last Two Hours Of Le Mans But It Just Missed A Fuel Stop

With a little over an hour and a half to go, the No. 7 Toyota TS050 slowed abruptly from second place. Sure, 13 laps separated it from the next car given that the Toyotas are that much quicker than the privateer LMP1 teams, but you have to finish the race to be classified—as Toyota knows painfully after their leading…

Loose Drain Cover Pauses The 24 Hours Of Le Mans To Put The Track Back Together Loose Drain Cover Pauses The 24 Hours Of Le Mans To Put The Track Back Together

Tired yet? The road used for the 24 Hours of Le Mans just gave everybody a good chance to make another pot of coffee because it’s kind of falling apart. A drain cover came loose, so cars circulated behind a safety car Sunday morning while race personnel tack the cover down more securely.

Ping-Pong Action Takes Out One Of The New BMW M8 GTEs During A Crashy Morning At Le Mans

It’s early in the morning at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and in case you didn’t pick it up from the cutaways to sleeping crew members, folks are clearly a bit tired. This morning started off with a few major crashes ‘n’ bashes. One of the unlucky cars that had to retire was one of the brand new BMW M8 GTEs as it was on…

The Late Night Le Mans Party Took The Seventh Retirement Of The Race Before Dawn Even Broke The Late Night Le Mans Party Took The Seventh Retirement Of The Race Before Dawn Even Broke

We didn’t so much cruise through the night at the Circuit de la Sarthe so much as we stumbled through it, crashing toward daybreak in a smoldering blaze of not-quite-glory. We’ve had fires. We’ve had crashes. We’ve had some drivers capitalizing on the shenanigans. Welcome to Le Mans.

We're Halfway Through The 24 Hours Of Le Mans We're Halfway Through The 24 Hours Of Le Mans

Our photographer Kurt Bradley is hard at work on the scene at the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans—and while he’s busy snapping away, I’m here to share some of his fantastic photographic highlights from the first half of the race and keep y’all updated on what’s happening on track. It’ll be just like you’re there at the…

There Are Two Minutes Between The Leading Toyotas At Le Mans, And Fernando Alonso Isn't In Front There Are Two Minutes Between The Leading Toyotas At Le Mans, And Fernando Alonso Isn't In Front

Bad news for the Fernando Alonso Hype Train: the car he’s sharing with Sebastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima just served a 60-second time penalty, which means that the formerly-leading car came out in second place, two minutes behind the Toyota being driven by Mike Conway.

Here's A Recap Of The Best Le Mans Crashes In The First Eight Hours Of The Race

While nobody has burst into flames or popped a tire in the middle of a stint (yet) this year, Le Mans has taken enough automotive sacrifices to please the racing gods for the rest of the summer at least.

One Of Britain's Most Accomplished Female Pilots Worked For The RAF And Raced Cars On The Side  One Of Britain's Most Accomplished Female Pilots Worked For The RAF And Raced Cars On The Side 

Amy Johnson didn’t realize how dissatisfied she was with her job as a secretary at a law firm until she saw an airplane take off from her backyard. As the wheels left the ground and the impossible hunk of metal and engineering took flight, Johnson realized that there was more to the world than just the daily grind…

Watching Le Mans In America Is Still An Impossible Annoyance Thanks To Geo-Blocks And Bad Streams Watching Le Mans In America Is Still An Impossible Annoyance Thanks To Geo-Blocks And Bad Streams

When the World Endurance Championship announced its partnership with US broadcaster Velocity, the future of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in America seemed a little more promising. No more channel hopping. No more inconvenient interruptions or push-backs from Fox, who didn’t quite seem to grasp the fact that Le Mans is …

1994 Le Mans Racer Steve Millen Says You Never Forget The Smell Of Sausage 1994 Le Mans Racer Steve Millen Says You Never Forget The Smell Of Sausage

Steve Millen is a very accomplished racer. He’s bagged the 24 Hours Of Daytona, IMSA GT Driver’s Championships, a whole bunch of other things and most relevantly today, he ran the 24 Hours of Le Mans twice including a stint behind the wheel of the factory-sponsored Nissan 300ZX in 1994.

How Hillclimb Racer Charlie Martin Is Trying To Make Motorsports For Everybody How Hillclimb Racer Charlie Martin Is Trying To Make Motorsports For Everybody

Ahead of the Ginetta GT 5 Challenge race weekend at Silverstone during the June 8 weekend, racer Charlie Martin sat down in front of a crowd at the drivers’ meeting. With a rainbow sticker in hand, she explained a rather simple—but effective—plan: place one of these small stickers somewhere on your car to show your…

Watch Le Mans Driver Jeroen Bleekemolen Cruise Through A Gravel Trap Like It's Asphalt

Spinning into a gravel trap is generally bad news. You’re lucky if you can drive your car out afterward, but chances are you’re going to be beached there for a second. Unless, of course, your name is Jeroen Bleekemolen and you’re a whole handful of badass.

Le Mans Just Claimed Its First Victims Of 2018 On The Very First Corner

In a 24 hour race, it seems a little silly to get too keen on the first lap. I mean, there’s still a whole 23 hours and 59 minutes of racing left to go, and you’re not going to win a 24 hour race on the first turn of the first lap. But it’s also pretty much the biggest race ever and everyone is itching to take home…

How To Make A Toyota GT86 Race Car Fast, Reliable, And Not Need A Turbo How To Make A Toyota GT86 Race Car Fast, Reliable, And Not Need A Turbo

The Toyota GT86 Cup is a brilliant race car kit which makes the best street car I’ve driven in years even more enjoyable on track. One team tweaked their GT86 Cup even further for Nürburgring domination, and it held its own against much more powerful cars at the Nürburgring 24 Hours. Bonus: they didn’t even add a…
