PostHeaderIcon Audi RS 5 DTM

Any fan of touring car racing has undoubtedly heard of the DTM series, but for those of you out there still drawing a blank, I’ll start things off with a little background info. The Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, or DTM for short, is Germany’s premier touring car race series, often pitting the big three German makes of Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz against one another on circuits around Europe. Audi Sport had a very impressive performance during the 2017 season, snagging a slew of titles and achieving its “most successful results of all time,” according to the team. However, the 2018 season is now upon us, and with it, a variety of regulation changes shake up the competitive landscape. So, how did Audi adapt to the revisions compared to Merc and BMW? Read on to find out.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Supra NASCAR Race Car

The Toyota Supra is set to return to the market after a 16-year absence. Rumored for many years and teased since 2017, the Supra will make its public debut later in 2018, but Toyota has already introduced a couple of race cars. We’ve seen the first one in the form of an FIA-spec concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, while the second one is a somewhat surprising entry in the NASCAR Infinity series.

Unveiled ahead of the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at the Daytona International Speedway, the Supra replaces the Camry in the Xfinity Series starting in 2019. The Camry-based race car leaves the series after ten competitive years, during which it won four manufacturer championships, two driver titles, and 147 wins as of 2018. This is the first time when the Supra name will be used in any NASCAR series.

Volkswagen’s all-electric I.D. R hummed its way into Pikes Peak lore after smashing the International Hillclimb’s record with a time of 7:57.148, becoming the first-ever race car to complete the 12.42-mile course in under eight minutes. The record-setting run happened over the weekend, etching the car and its driver, Romain Dumas, into the Pike Peak International Hillclimb record books.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans – Race Report

Toyota’s legendary bad luck at the world’s most famous long-distance endurance race has finally been broken on Sunday when the No. 8 Toyota TS050 of Sebastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima, and Fernando Alonso crossed the line to score the Japanese manufacturer’s first overall win. Toyota Gazoo Racing virtually ran away with the victory after dominating in practice, qualifying and the entirety of the 24-hours-long race ahead of a fleet of brand-new non-hybrid prototypes that were pegged back from the word go by the rule book. Alonso brought in significant media attention, and Toyota’s marketing division is jubilant after the Spaniard ticked it all: fastest lap at the Test Day, pole position, and victory – all on attempt number 1.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Finally Wins At Le Mans, Fernando Alonso Draws One Step Closer To Triple Crown

After knocking on the door multiple times in the past few years, Toyota finally broke through, winning its first-ever Le Mans title in dominant fashion. The winning #8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid beat its sister car, the #7 TS050, on the back of its trio of drivers, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Buemi, and Kabuki Nakajima.

PostHeaderIcon Note to Toyota: Resist The Urge to Send The Toyota Supra To Race in NASCAR

The new Toyota Supra isn’t even out yet, but there are already rumors that the Japanese automaker is looking into having it race in NASCAR during the 2019 season. According to the rumors, a race-spec version of the Supra would be entered in the second-tier Xfinity Series, leaving the Camry race car to remain in the flagship Cup Series.

PostHeaderIcon Watch The 10 Fastest Runs Ever At the Goodwood Festival Of Speed: Video

Later next month, speed addicts the world over will descend on Goodwood House in the U.K., each vying to strut their stuff in the annual Goodwood Festival Of Speed Hillclimb event. However, they’ll really need to bring their A-game if they hope to make it into the top 10 fastest times ever recorded at the event, as evidenced in this 9-minute, 16-second video.

The vid shows each of the top runs in its entirety, ranging between 45.08 seconds for the number 10 spot, to 41.6 seconds for the number one spot. The breadth and variety of cars competing here is staggering, including standouts like the squirrelly Toyota Tacoma driven by Rod Millen, the no-holds-barred Subaru Impreza WRX “Gobstopper II” driven by Olly Clark, the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak-record holder driven by Sebastien Loeb, and the Formula 1 McLaren-Mercedes MP4/13 driven by Nick Heidfeld.

Watching these machines tackle the climb is a true delight, and hearing each wind it out is enough to give any gearhead some goosebumps. Hit play, crank the volume, and get stoked.

PostHeaderIcon VW Gears Up For Pikes Peak With I.D. R All-Electric Racer: Video

The 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is rapidly approaching, and Volkswagen will be there to challenge the standing course record with this – the I.D. R, an all-electric racer purpose-built for the job. The event is set to take place at the end of the month, but VW is already onsite in Colorado, prepping for the big day with a few test runs in an effort to sort out any lingering issues with the new racing machine. Chronicling the latest efforts is this 2-minute, 46-second teaser vid, which shows the I.D. R in action alongside an interview with its driver, Romain Dumas.

All told, the I.D. R certainly has the right specs for something like this. In addition to simply ludicrous aero, this carbon monster is powered by a dual-motor powertrain making 671 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, enough to propel it to 60 mph in just 2.25 seconds.

That’s quick, but Mr. Dumas has the skills to make it work, boasting a resume that includes wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 24 Hours of Nurburgring, and 12 Hours of Sebring, not to mention outright victories at Pikes Peak in 2014, 2016, and 2017.

That said, even the best driver and car in the world won’t make this a cake walk. The Pikes Peak course is highly technical and extremely dangerous, composed of 156 turns spread over 12.42 miles, rising nearly 5,000 feet. The finish line towers above the surrounding landscape at 14,110 feet above sea level, which has a profound effect on cooling and aerodynamics, not to mention the driver’s mental state.

Will VW pull it off? Tune in June 24th to find out.

Panasonic Jaguar Racing is looking to continue its momentum in Formula E as it enters its third season with the new I-Type 3 race car. After coming in dead last in its maiden season in 2016, Panasonic Jaguar Racing made huge strides in 2017, vaulting up to fifth in the overall constructor’s championship standings in the current season. Ahead of its third season in the series, the British racing firm is looking to break into the podium with a race car it hopes can get them there.

PostHeaderIcon Can The Porsche 919 Evo Actually Destroy The Nurburgring’s 35-Year Old Lap Record?

Auto journalist Misha Charoudin believes that the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo is not only capable of beating the all-time lap record at the Nurburgring, but with the help of a few calculations, it can actually destroy the record. The auto scribe was at the Nurburgring a few days ago at the same time as the 919 Hybrid Evo, and he was able to see up-close exactly what the record-breaking racer is capable of. With the data that he gathered, combined with a few mathematical computations, Charoudin asserts that in ideal track conditions, the 919 Hybrid Evo would be capable of posting a lap time of under five minutes.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3

As the current Nissan GT-R is preparing for retirement with a new, hybrid-powered model underway, the race-spec Nismo GT3 was upgraded for the 2019 racing season.

Last revised in 2015, the GT-R Nismo GT3 has now received a new aerodynamic package on the outside and borrowed the recent changes that Nissan rolled out for the road-legal sports car. The race car also boasts an upgraded chassis that includes new suspension components, more durable brakes, and a more reliable transmission. That vehicle that has won many races in series like the Blancpain GT Series and the Super GT, just to name a few, will hit the track with these new upgrades for the 2019 season.
