This was another week without much racing going on. There was a race in Abu Dhabi on Saturday for GT cars and prototypes called the Gulf 12 Hours, but it wasn’t broadcast in video anywhere, so nobody was able to watch it. There is still a bunch of news for the week, and a whole lot of great videos to check out, so be sure to click through to see everything and learn what you’ve missed. The only place to get all of your weekly motorsport news in just one post.

Read along to see what good stuff happened this weekend. Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse. Just be aware of the fact that this post is filled with spoilers. Giant carbon-fiber, multi-element, DRS-equipped, Gurney-flapped, Spoilers! Oh, and in case you missed it, I am also hosting a new motorsport podcast these days…

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 155 – Prowler Trailer

ct-155

This week on the Cammed & Tubbed podcast, we’ve got Jason back from Hawaii to discuss stuff with Cam and Brad. The year is winding down, so it’s time to talk about Car of the Year stuff, and our end of year episode. Brad had some 912E project updates. Cam moved his Mustang into the new garage, and dealt with some winter driving. Brad berates Hooniverse News Editor Greg for not diving in face first to a country-wide road trip, while Cam and Jason try to get him to spend thousands of dollars in prep work. You’ll probably enjoy it, so go listen already!

The next episode is our typical Question Tuesday episode, this one is just Cam and Brad this week. It continues to boggle our collective minds that we get so many great questions from all of our excellent listeners. Keep sending them along, we love answering them. Thanks for playing the game with us!

The DFL Show: Episode 29 – Three Kumquats

This week it’s just Eric, Pat, and Stef, but it was still a great, if a little non-sequiter, episode. Some quick discussion of the 12 hours of Sepang, a whole lot of news, A CUSTOM MADLIBS, Formula 1 stuff, NASCAR gets a new presenting sponsor, a bunch of IndyCar, WEC, IMSA, PWC, DTM, and other sports car news.

Then we have some listener questions, a bit of our weekly awards, and some brief discussion of what’s coming up this weekend (not much).

HCOTY Nomination: Jaguar XKSS (No, The Old One!)

hcoty-2016-jaguar-xkss

Okay, so you can *sorta* buy a new one of these from Jaguar, but not really. Technically they are building a continuation of the original 16 XKSS built in 1957, as nine chassis were burnt in a factory fire. So really you’re just buying a 1957 car in 2016. Or a replica? However you want to define it, the new XKSS that Jaguar is building at a million a pop does not violate “The Dealership Directive“, mostly because I made the rules and I say it doesn’t.

Anyway, read on to see TEN REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR THE XKSS AS HOONIVERSAL CAR OF THE YEAR!

Hooniverse Motorsport News For December 12, 2016

There was a whopping ONE race this weekend that was really worth talking about. The 12 Hour endurance race for sports cars in Sepang, Malaysia. Honestly, that was a really fun race to watch, and it makes up for pretty much every other series having ended for the season, but it’s still a bit disappointing to only have one single race this weekend to talk about. In any case, there was a ton of news to talk about, and I’ve dug up quite a few YouTube videos for you to check out as well. So, maybe click the jump, this one will be shorter than usual…

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 153 – Moe Money, Moe Problems

ct-w-moe

Another episode of C&T delivered hot and fresh right to your listening device. This week we don’t have Jason as he’s enjoying our nation’s 50th state, but we do have Christian Moe of Internet Brands and other places. Cam and Brad discuss with Christian concerning the future of our nation and how the automobile fits into that future. We also discuss what kind of Hot Rod we would build, tires, drivetribe, and some Car Guy Gifts for the upcoming holiday season.

Truck Thursday: 1952 Dodge M37 PowerWagon For Sale

00q0q_dgr4ngs7tgw_600x450

Every now and again I show up on Craigslist and just type in the word “Project” to see what comes up. This time I was not as disappointed as I usually am. This lovely old Military truck came up and I was instantly enamored. I technically have the time and the space, but being that I just bought a Porsche 912E, I haven’t got the spare scratch to make it mine. Hopefully someone will tell me in the comments why it’s a terrible truck and I wouldn’t want it anyway. For the full listing, and some more photos, click through the jump.

The DFL Show: Episode 28 – Blunders Down Under W/ Joel Strickland

v8supercars-homebush-2016-shane-van-gisbergen-triple-eight-race-engineering-holden

This week we have a guest, or is he another host? Joel Strickland, Hooniverse contributor, joins us from Down Under. He’s got a unique perspective on motorsport, and he’s a huge Aussie Virgin Supercars fan, so we have a lot in common. Joel is on board with Brad, Pat, and Eric to talk about all kinds of motorsport. Speaking of Supercars, the finale was last weekend. We also discuss some 25 Hours of Thunderhill, the Asian Le Mans Series from Fuji, and a bit of LeMons Arse Freeze.

We talk about Nico Rosberg’s retirement, the new Caddy DPi, the BMW Art Car thing, new Porsche hires (again), and some IMSA and PWC news. There’s a little NASCAR and IndyCar news, as well as a new course for the SCCA Runoffs, a new Hyundai WRC car, and WTCC is a joke. We talked about Australian motorsport for about 20 minutes, but Joel’s audio cut out, so we had to cut that bit. I’m gutted, but it was still great. We handed out some awards and then bounced. It was a good time. Hopefully Joel will come back some time soon!

Not much to report on racing this week, just the usual. There was an excellent race in the Supercar series, Thunderhill held their annual 25-hour endurance race, Asian Le Mans series was in Japan, Ferrari tried (and failed) to make some kind of record happen, Porsche announced three new racing drivers hired, and OH YEAH, THE FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPION RETIRED! THAT’S NEWS!
