The LaFerrari is still an interesting car, long after the drama of the Porsche 918/McLaren P1/LaFerrari hybrid hypercar trichotomy has faded. You get the advanced tech of full carbon construction, cutting-edge aerodynamics and hybrid drive, but still assisting a high-revving naturally-aspirated V12. Now, what if we…Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

I Read The Men Because Of Its Hilarious Name And Walked Away With A Whole New Take On Vintage F1

There’s something about motorsport that makes it a difficult thing to capture in words, and that’s especially true when it comes to nonfiction books written by motorsport journalists.

Forza Horizon 5's launch has been pretty stellar, all things considered. Sure, the servers have been spotty since its full release about a week ago, but then that’s what happens when you claim 6 million players mere days after launch.

This Might Not Be The Year for Hamilton’s Eighth F1 World Championship

There’s a change happening in the air of Formula 1 as of late. For the past five years, Lewis Hamilton has had a relatively unchallenged race to the top of the Formula 1 leaderboard.

The Mercedes-AMG One’s Specs May Have Leaked In Forza Horizon 5

The release of a new Forza game is always a big occasion. You spend the prior year guessing what the cover cars will be (I’ll have you know I called the AMG One/Bronco combo back in July), where the game will take place (I guessed Japan), and what as-yet-unreleased concept cars will make an appearance.

An Ode To The Pontiac McLaren Grand Prix Turbo

I have a dream. In this dream, I show up at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England behind the wheel of a mint Pontiac McLaren Grand Prix Turbo.
