There’s little more fun that getting your hands on a normal road car, prepping it for a rally and getting to send it—oh shit oh shit oh no this has not gone well.
Tesla’s commitment to new technology is what put it on the map, but the way this tech rolls out is always contentious. Lithium-ion batteries, Autopilot and now the Model X’s Falcon doors, which are blamed for a harrowing incident in China.
The Targa Florio road race around Sicily left the international calendar in the 1970s for being too dangerous, but it has made a comeback in recent years as a vintage and a rally event. Today, the race was canceled following a fatal crash between a father-daughter team and a course marshal.
Locals in New Hampshire had to detain a Corvette driver from getting anyone in further danger after he crashed his convertible ‘Vette twice in the span of seven minutes on Sunday night. If you’re wondering, yes, he had a personalized license plate.
Spring is here! The trees are budding, the birds are singing, and people are acting a fool leaving car shows and getting their asses handed to them. Even vintage Morgan owners can’t be counted out.
An Australian motorcyclist found himself both attacked and saved by a mattress flying off the back of a truck last night. As it appears to be moving season, it’s a good video reminder to tie down your mattress right.
Watch as this twin-turbo Hemi Corvette lifts up in praise and soars straight into heaven. The car (and thankfully not the driver, who is fine) is with the angels now.
Pascal Wehrlein is not the biggest name in Formula One—he’s just one of the drivers for mid-pack Sauber. Well, not all-the-time driver. He won’t be at the next race because he’s injured, injured in another event. And injured in a surprisingly unusual and crazy fashion, I might add.
Cheap hood latches might look the same and seem the same, but when they fail at 137 miles per hour, you really begin to understand why you should not cheap out on what holds you hood down.

Remember those first heady weeks when the Ford Focus RS started showing up on the road? Blue rockethatches, bright and innocent, right up until that one dude drift-moded his way into the side of a mountain. Apparently this is what that car looks like now. (Update: different car, dude!)
This Subaru owner thought he was doing everything right. He had a nice all-wheel drive Forester, he was adjusting his tire pressures for better traction and he figured he was as ready for the snow as anyone could be. But the snow had other ideas and sent a van crashing into the side of his car.
Yesterday we saw the first videos of a fatal crash of a Tesla Model S in downtown Indianapolis. We had read reports that firefighters had to dodge individual battery cells exploding out of the car’s burning lithium-ion batter pack. Now you can see them, indeed, shooting like fireworks.

This horrific 10-car pileup in upstate New York last week included a tractor trailer with faulty brakes spearing through traffic, but no one was killed. One major reason for that was the crowd of bystanders who managed to pull a woman from the burning wreckage of her car.
