It’s been quite a weekend for cursing on live tv, so here’s sports car racing team owner Wayne Taylor responding to his team’s performance at today’s 12 hours of Sebring with joyous profanity.
Frustrated up with dearth of passing, confusing rules or just a general lack of excitement in your motorsports series of choice? Then it’s time to check out MotoGP. The new season kicks off this weekend, and all signs point to it being another amazing one.
A complaint filed with a U.S. District Court in Florida accuses former NASCAR driver Rick Crawford of trying to pay for sex with a minor, a fictitious 12-year-old girl used in a police investigation. Crawford was taken into custody upon arriving for the encounter, where he thought he was meeting the girl’s father.
Danica Patrick announced last year that she’d end her racing career with one more attempt at each of America’s biggest racing events, the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. A wreck just over 100 laps in at Daytona sent several cars spiraling, and eventually knocked Patrick out of her final NASCAR race.
The IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge is an underrated gem, full of gutsy drivers looking to move up in the world. However, the video for their Rolex 24 support race is wonderful for another reason: the mics were still recording during breaks in the broadcast, and IMSA left that in when they uploaded the race…
You may think all the best forms of racing have already been invented. I am here to tell you you’re wrong. I have created the best new form of racing.
Three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Hurley Haywood has always been very private about his personal life, but one personal secret was widely known within the racing community: Haywood is gay. Haywood not only confirms it in his new autobiography, but hopes that being open about it will help others accept who they…
Former NASCAR and Formula 1 racer Scott Speed has been suspended from popular simulation racing game iRacing after footage of him attempting to intentionally crash into other players surfaced.
Being unfamiliar with Peter Brock is pretty much unthinkable to Australian auto racing fans, but for much of the rest of the world, that’s the sorry state we live in. This is a shame, not just because Peter Brock was a truly gifted driver and ran a great factory-approved tuning company, but because the story of his…
Dan Gurney died Sunday at age 86, and to say that he lived a full life would be an enormous understatement. He wasn’t just one of the world’s most prolific racing drivers, or the namesake of the Gurney flap and the Gurney bubble. He even started the tradition of spraying champagne on the podium. But that’s just the…
Formula One’s use of grid girls is still “under review,” but instead of deciding whether to axe the concept altogether, F1 will try to make grid girls “more relevant” to competition. This weak and complacent move was, of course, going to happen the whole time. It was silly of us to think otherwise.
Montreal announced today that it will cancel its Formula E race weekend after last year’s race weekend cost taxpayers millions of dollars and left the organizers in debt, the CBC reports. Montreal mayor Valérie Plante claims that taxpayers would have to pay up to $35 million CAD ($27 million U.S.) to host the second…
Last night in Brazil’s premier “500 Milhas de Kart” event, two drivers were disqualified for engaging in fisticuffs after the pair had contact on track that ended with both of them stuck in the barrier with just 18 laps remaining in the race.
The Nürburgring is heaven on earth for car nuts, attracting the world’s most interesting cars, including manufacturers’ latest models. You can even drive it yourself! Sometimes a dream trip to the ‘Ring doesn’t end up being quite so enviable, though, and here are this year’s fail compilations that prove it.
Youtheory Racing’s No. 55 truck sent a wheel flying across a desert when their truck landed nose-first into the dirt while trying to qualify for the Pahrump Nugget 250 Best in the Desert race. No one was hurt, but it just looks like a ridiculous trucksplosion.
If there’s any one kind of racing that gets universal approval from the Jalopnik staff, it’s Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing. It’s the safety-third pastime of flinging yourself down a steep hill on a children’s ride-on, and the wipeouts are incredible. It’s truly racing for the people, and we love it so much.
Here’s some more exhausting garbage about women in motorsport to ruin your day: organizers are still trying to make that ridiculous all-women Formula One series happen in 2019. They’ve scrapped the goofy “SHE Championship” name, but it’s still the same infuriating, patronizing idea that no one really needs.
The Toyota 86 Racing Series’ Race 1 at Newcastle Street Circuit this weekend went out with a big bang. The safety car pulled back in to let the race restart with only one lap left. That ended exactly as poorly as it usually does for a large chunk of the field who got caught up in a big ol’ crash.
Cash-strapped automotive startup Faraday Future has ended its partnership with the Dragon Racing Formula E team, according to Autosport. Dragon Racing had already dropped Faraday Future from its name on the 2017-18 season entry list, but now it’s reported that Faraday Future won’t be involved with them at all.
Can you just imagine being a Formula 3 driver? Just imagine it. You’ve worked your way up. Next stop, Formula 1. You’ve had your successes, and now, another one. You’re on the last corner of the last lap of a big race. And then you stuff it. Both of you.
