F1's New Logo Is Under Fire Because It Sort Of Looks Like A Logo For Really Tight Socks F1's New Logo Is Under Fire Because It Sort Of Looks Like A Logo For Really Tight Socks

About two months ago, Formula One Managment released their new logo, and it’s you know, fine. It’s not an amazing triumph of design, but it does the job. The problem is that it already seems to be doing a job, just for 3M, selling a line of compression socks and tights and gloves.

Of Course F1 Is Backpedaling On Getting Rid Of Grid Girls  Of Course F1 Is Backpedaling On Getting Rid Of Grid Girls 

Formula One’s use of grid girls is still “under review,” but instead of deciding whether to axe the concept altogether, F1 will try to make grid girls “more relevant” to competition. This weak and complacent move was, of course, going to happen the whole time. It was silly of us to think otherwise.

Two-Liter Screamer Ford Escort RS2000 Rips Up Hillclimb Course Two-Liter Screamer Ford Escort RS2000 Rips Up Hillclimb Course

This video depicts Rino Muradore on his way to a Historic Class victory at the 2017 running of the Cronoscalata Cividale Castelmonte Italian Hillclimb.

At The Halfway Point, Carlos Sainz Inherits Dakar Lead At The Halfway Point, Carlos Sainz Inherits Dakar Lead

Prior to Saturday’s 425km stage, Frenchman Stephane Peterhansel had led the 14-day rally by 27 minutes over Peugeot teammate Sainz. Over the first few timing sections of the 7th stage from La Paz to Uyuni, Peterhansel had cleared another 3 minutes over Sainz, running like a man possessed. Unfortunately, while trying…

Here Are All Of The 2018 LMP1 Competitors Here Are All Of The 2018 LMP1 Competitors

With the FIA WEC super season nearing its kickoff this May, many LMP1 manufacturers and privateer teams have announced their intention to participate. With the loss of Audi at the end of 2016 and Porsche at the end of 2017, I figured LMP1 all but dead, but things seem to have rebounded a bit with a bigger field than…

Why Snow Rallies In America Are So Much Gnarlier Than In The Rest Of The World Why Snow Rallies In America Are So Much Gnarlier Than In The Rest Of The World

The most famous winter rallies in the world take place in the frozen norths of Sweden, Norway and Finland, but the gnarliest ones take place right here in America. Why? Because we run our snow rallies without studs.

Let The Man Drive Let The Man Drive

McLaren Formula One driver Fernando Alonso’s quest to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport is one of the most pure and good things in motorsport right now. Lest you think “guy who likes racing does more of it and has fun” is a no-brainer, here’s ex-Red Bull F1, ex-Porsche 919 driver Mark Webber with a bad take.

Dakar Team Finishes The Last 24 Miles Of The Day With Only Two Front Tires Dakar Team Finishes The Last 24 Miles Of The Day With Only Two Front Tires

If you keep popping tires, perhaps you should take a page from the No. 321 Dakaras Toyota. These crazy Lithuanians put the two good tires on the front of their Toyota Hilux and pretended it was just a big front-wheel-drive Yaris. They went over 24 miles with only two front tires to reach the finish line for Stage 4.

The World Rally Championship Will Stream Every Stage In 2018 The World Rally Championship Will Stream Every Stage In 2018

Rally is one of our favorite motorsports for going deep into nature—beyond the limits of civilization, cell service and sanity—and blasting through it with a car. This is also what’s makes it extremely difficult to broadcast, but somehow, the World Rally Championship figured out how for every stage in 2018—not for…

This Burnout Champion Brown Holden Ute Is Australia's New King Of The Hoons This Burnout Champion Brown Holden Ute Is Australia's New King Of The Hoons

Try as we might, we just can’t seem to out-hoon the continent that gave us the word “hoon.” Australia opens every year with perhaps the most glorious spectacle in roasted tires: Summernats. This year’s burnout contest winner is pure Jalop bait, too. It’s a Holden ute that’s even louder than it is brown—and it is…

Cadillac is still the fastest car in IMSA as the 2018 season kicks off with the Roar Before The 24 testing at Daytona this weekend.

This Is What Happened To A Honda Prelude Engine Flooded In Hurricane Harvey This Is What Happened To A Honda Prelude Engine Flooded In Hurricane Harvey

The acres of flooded cars for sale after a major hurricane can be temptingly cheap, but as the POS Racing team is finding out, there are extremely good reasons why. POS Racing bought a 1992 Honda Prelude that they’d like to race in the 24 Hours of Lemons, and it came with a whole lot of water for free!
