    I am going to put a string of words out there that seem like they’d only be vaguely connected. Subaru. Ferrari. Rally. California. Oregon. Some of those seem related, but for this story, they all fit together amazingly well. That’s because the video above shows a 2004 Subaru WRX STI fully built up for rally…

    Running a car at a 24 Hours of Lemons race never goes perfectly to plan. But we’re inching closer to seeing what that might be like for us. This was our second race running a two-car team, and we turned a whole lot of laps. In the end, one car was driven on the trailer,…

    We’re now a two-car team with respect to the West Coast efforts in the 24 Hours of Lemons. Yes, we still run the 1962 Ford Ranchero and it finally has V8 power. But we’ve added another headache; a 1966 MGB GT. And this one too, somehow, also has V8 power. Even better? Both cars finished…

    The 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed got underway today and it’s already looking like the place to be if you love all things automotive. Over on the Goodwood YouTube channel, they’ve been running a live stream all day. But they’ve also been putting out clip videos as well. I grabbed the one below which shows…

    The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb has officially entered its second centenary. The 101st running of the race has just concluded and it was a proper send-off to the next 100 years. The weather was cooperative for once and was delightful the entirety of race day. Over the years poor weather conditions typically ruin runs.…

    I was watching a reply of the Red Bull Erzberg Rodeo the other day, and I’m blown away at the skill of the riders. This is a race that takes place in the Erzberg Mine in Austria. It’s an iron ore mine that cranks out over 2 million tonnes of ore every year. And once…

    Watching a wealthy actor attempt to be a race car driver is typically pretty boring stuff. There are exceptions, of course. Patrick Dempsey can wheel. Paul Newman was a hero in a car. Adam Carolla typically pushes his own fleet of vintage race cars pretty hard. Gene Hackman ran at the 24 Hours of Daytona,…

    The 19th season of the Formula Drift Championship surprisingly ended similar to the way it began… with Matt Field’s Corvette stuffed into a wall and a Toyota/Papadakis Racing Driver on top of the box. It started back in April when Toyota debuted the all-new Toyota Corolla GR at Round 1: Formula Drift Long Beach. That’s…

    The Velocity Invitational took place last weekend, and the event is quickly living up to its concept as America’s Goodwood. Case in point is McLaren trotting out the 1990 MP4/5B Formula 1 race car, which Ayrton Senna drove to the world championship that season. And now it’s back roaring on the track. This time, we…

    It’s always great when I get an email from Tim. You know, Mad Science himself. Also known as the co-founder of this here website. That’s because it’s usually about racing at Lemons. So I’m quick to respond with a “hell yes” and then think about the race even though it’s a month or possibly months…
