We all watched Felix’s supersonic leap to Earth in 2012 during his famous Red Bull Stratos Jump. Now, Baumgartner will tackle another challenging adrenaline rush, the famous Nürburging 24 Hour race later this year. He’ll be driving an Audi R8 LMS Ultra. Felix Will team up with past LeMans winners as he tries out do his latest challenge. He’s occasionally raced before, but this would be his first well-known and popular competition for the daredevil.
Sometimes, we’re looking for good deals in our Auction Car of the Week. Other times, it’s some unique vehicle you just don’t see every day. Today, it’s some of one and none of the other with this amazing 1966 Brabham BT8 listed on eBay. It’s got a Buy It Now price of $265,900, so it’s not exactly the kind of car you buy on a whim. But it might just be the coolest vintage racer on the ‘Bay of E’ right now.
When Lexus unveiled the two-door RC coupe, it was clear that the Japanese automaker dared to be different. With a gaping mouth, a smooth body profile and a sharp rear-end, it’s arguably one of the prettiest coupes we’ve seen in a long time.
Believe it or not, seven years ago today Honda debuted one of the most talked about F1 cars in recent history — the “Earth Car.” Technically speaking, it didn’t do much to improve Honda’s racing performance before the team’s pullout in 2008. But symbolically, the Earth Car made a statement of a cleaner sport that other team’s had yet to make.
After countless hours of waiting, loads of impatient race fans got to witness Dale Earnhardt Jr. take home his second Daytona 500 victory. That is, if they stuck around for the 6 hour and 22 minute rain delay. Aka, the longest rain delay in Daytona 500 history.
From outward appearance, there’s very little that Appalachia has in common with the Florida coast. In reality, however, the two regions are linked by millions of years of natural history. The quartz sand that graces the Sunshine State was once part of the Appalachian high country, carried south by eons of slow, steady erosion. This is fitting, given the way the two regions are also linked together by the history of stock car racing.
In the mid 90s, McLaren nearly dominated the world of motor racing. From Le Mans, to the FIA GT Championship to the British GT Championship; among others. But strangely enough, McLaren F1 designer Gordon Murray’s dream of the ultimate road-going supercar was never developed for the track. It wasn’t until teams took the vehicle out to the track, did they realize just how precise and track-purposed the car truly was.
We were on hand last night to watch the Magnum MK5 makes its U.S. debut at the Boca Raton Concours pre-party in South Florida. And we were delightfully surprised — this Canadian track car was even prettier in person.
For every passion, there’s a place that represents everything that draws people to it. Chocolate lovers have Hershey, PA, Elvis fans have Graceland, and NASCAR fanatics have Daytona International Speedway. Home to the association’s premier event, its history is almost as captivating as the race held there each February.
It’s that time when NASCAR kicks off in full force, with teams taking to Daytona this Sunday. If you’re reading this site, you’re probably into Formula 1, WRC and endurance racing, which is all cool, but you really should give NASCAR a shot.
