Im not sure this should be titled How to Make it... but rather his life as a pro racer and then its a pretty good speech. He openly admits to bringing cash for his seat which is awesome to hear. So many drivers say they got "picked up" which really means their check cleared. Wild that he covers Daytona 2010. That must… » 12/21/14 9:24pm 17 minutes ago

Im sorry you're so angry, but I'm not entirely sure what I did to offend you? And I'm sure I dont need to point out the obvious.... but Facebook is optional.

The other thing is.... why post something like this on Oppo? I dont care that you're sharing my Facebook page, this is just a bad post that has nothing to do… » 12/20/14 1:31pm Yesterday 1:31pm

Global Rallycross: Vote for your favorite driver

For the past week or so, Red Bull Global Rallycross has been running a bracket for voting your favorite driver. Today is Bucky Lasek against Geoff Sykes. Who is Geoff Sykes? Well that's exactly why you should vote for him. I'm friends with both drivers and know Bucky reads Jalopnik and will see this, so Bucky I hope… » 12/18/14 4:19pm Thursday 4:19pm

My 125cc shifter kart fit in the back of my X5 with the side pods and rear wheels removed... So yes a kart definitely can fit in the back of an SUV. And my friend just picked up a shifter with tons of gear, suit, helmet, tools, wheels, spares for $1600. But if you want to autocross a miata, have at it! » 7/21/14 7:33pm 7/21/14 7:33pm

Why the Nürburgring is so difficult to learn

The Nürburgring is different than other racetracks. It was built when safety and motorsport where opposites. There are jumps and a straight so long you have time to ask yourself "How fast am I really going?" There are 73 official corners on the Nordshliefe plus another 11 on the GP course, but that's not what makes… » 6/20/14 1:16pm 6/20/14 1:16pm

I saw one testing at the Nurburgring last month. I think this one had wider fenders at some point in its life because of the weird tape covering what I think were spot welds for the VLN fenders. Maybe a M2 Xdrive with wider fenders is coming? » 5/13/14 12:56pm 5/13/14 12:56pm

So it's simply a cash issue for you? That's too bad. The cash is the easiest part actually. Learning to build your own Racecar and weld your own roll cage, tow 3,000 mikes into Mexico and become the first amatuer to run a full wrc rally with no fia license or legal car, and to do on the longest rally of the wrc with… » 4/09/14 10:05am 4/09/14 10:05am

A lot of the launches were done that way. 5 down and 5 back, 5 down and 5 back. To show all of that footage for all the launches makes the video like 20 minutes. but yes, I would barely get to a sport and fire it off again. I was abusive. promise. » 3/11/14 3:29pm 3/11/14 3:29pm

I COULDNT AGREE MORE! I have three quotes to rent a real WRC car for next Monte Carlo. Real deal, WRC R4 class. Looking into slightly cheaper options like an R2 but Im planning on going next January! I cant stop thinking about it after driving the Col de Turini last spring! » 2/04/14 2:09pm 2/04/14 2:09pm

I went to the dealer in San Deigo that had this car on its lot. They said it was near impossible for them to sell and sat forever. We purchased a 4dr F30 320i for my wife that day and I never once asked to drive it after we bought it. why? no steering feel, slower than our 1999 toyota camry XLE with V6 (just barely,… » 2/03/14 4:28pm 2/03/14 4:28pm

Audi TT RS Pitstop - 25hrs of Thunderhill

I stopped by the 25hrs of Thunderhill last month to see Robb Holland race the Audi TT RS and catch up with friends running a wild E36. At 2am while chasing down the leaders, the Audi came in for a driver change. I wish I had a tripod or a camera I haven't dropped 10,000 times(replaced with a D800 last week) but this… » 1/16/14 9:26am 1/16/14 9:26am
