If the thought of a BMW M235i Racing grabs your attention, then here’s a video just for you. It’s little more than teaser clip so don’t go in expecting lots of sideways action or even adrenaline fulled 10/10ths driving. The beauty about this customer racecar is you can buy your own and drive it in […]

Audi has just released this image of its 2014 LMP1 racecar which will defend its WEC title and Le Mans crown. Clearly Audi has put all the good ideas into the car itself because it’s still called the R18 e-tron quattro. That’s despite some significant changes to the LMP1 category for 2014. The new R18 […]
It’s Sunday night and there’s no Formula 1 race waiting to close the week out. If you’re having high-octane withdrawal symptoms here’s a short video from F1 fan Patrick Krutyj that brings you some of the highs and lows we’ve witnessed from circuits around the globe in recent years.
So what is this Formula E category the FIA is introducing next year? In simple terms it will commence as a one-make category consisting of 10 teams, with two drivers each, racing on 10 city street circuits around the globe. The point of difference is the car being used, the Spark-Renault SRT 01E, runs solely […]
In September we’ll be transported to a new era of motorsport when the Formula E championship begins in Beijing. In its inaugural year, which will run across 2014 and 2015, Formula E will host 10 races across four continents. All races will be held on a Saturday, rather than the traditional Sunday as we’re familiar […]
The last time the FIA WMSC met it signed off on the 2014 WRC calendar, but after its most recent meeting overnight a small change to the calendar was made by pushing back Rally d’Italia one week to 8 June. A number of other issues relating to the WRC and minor championships were addressed as […]
Next year the FIA World Endurance Championship is going to be all about Porsche. True, we can probably expect Audi and Toyota to take favouritism as the two most likely to the battle for the title. But when you consider Porsche has had the relative luxury of developing its 2014 LMP1 racecar without the demands […]
The FIA’s World Motor Sport Council met overnight to sign off on a whole bunch of agenda items. Chief among them was the 2014 F1 calendar, which has now been locked away at 19 races. Last time we updated you on the 2014 calendar we were facing the prospect of a 22-race season. We already […]
Last year BMW returned to DTM racing and did so in style by winning the drivers’ and constructors’ titles. This week Chris Harris takes us inside the carbon fibre shell of the BMW M3 DTM. It starts off as a fairly regulated affair full of briefings and instructions. Soon enough Harris is let out on […]
We suspected this was going to happen, so it’s no surprise to read a report suggesting the Grand Prix of America, aka the New York GP, will be postponed until 2015. In a telephone interview Bernie Eccelstone said of the race: “We are not satisfied it’s going to happen in time. What we’re aiming for […]
It’s true we don’t really spend any time following the FIA’s World Touring Car Championship, another category undergoing big changes for 2014. But we couldn’t resist sharing this new image from Honda Racing showing off its very cool and aggressively styled 2014 Civic WTCC… …because racecar!
We already know the emerging Thierry Neuville will be leading Hyundai’s WRC assault in 2014, but we don’t know who will be joining him or which sponsors will be plastered all over the i20 WRC. It would be nice to see Chris Atkinson land another full-time gig in top line rallying, but we’re not holding […]
It looks like 2014 is the year of the return. Kimi Raikkonen is returning to the scene of his 2007 world championship at Ferrari, while Nico Hulkenberg is returning to the scene of his, erm, fourth place with Force India. Of coruse, the arrival of Hulkenberg to Force India means at least one of Paul […]
We’re to believe this animation was used as the opening sequence for the Brazilian Grand Prix by the home TV network. Whoever made it and wherever it was shown it is very bloody cool! Check it out after the break and watch one of the most fun histories of F1 you’re likely to see.
For a bit of light hearted fun Mark Webber was asked by PolePositionP1 to draw his Formula 1 car. As you’ll see in the video after the break Adrian Newey’s future and legacy is pretty safe as Mark decides his skills are inspired by the 1970s.
