Ken Block Ford Fiesta Gymkhana THREE

Just another awesome video from Ken Block!
Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.

BMW Owns Audi!

Doesn’t this make you go “ooooooooooooo”. Audi’s gotta be stinging, but it is their own fault, they’re the ones who put a personal attack on a fierce, direct competitor. This is what the transportation industry has come to, cut throat competition. They don’t have a choice anymore if they want us to support their cause and buy more cars.

This partnership is a result of 18 month collaboration to project Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility (P.U.M.A) The P.U.M.A. has a lot of common ground with the Segway Personal Transporter.

Absolute Worst Driving Conditions

As a Canadian, I know just like everyone else that living in cold regions will eventually lead to snow, ice and just plain bad driving conditions. However, I have never been in a situation where my completely stopped car could slide 50 meters down the street just because of outrageously bad weather conditions. Well here’s where I think most of us would draw the line, and stay inside.

360 Wednesday Babe: Jennifer Love Hewitt

If you ask me why I decided to go with Jennifer Love Hewitt for this week’s 360 babe, I’ll tell you this: She’s on the cover of Maxim Magazine for god sakes.
Not only this but it’s actually her 3rd time on the cover of Maxim. The first time was in 1999, than in 2005 and now for May 2009. This is awesome! I’m personally a big fan of Jennifer. She may not be the best actress I’ve seen but she’s a down to earth women with a rockin’  body.
To be …

Crazy Car Crash: Carl Edwards Big Crash at Talladega

When it comes to car crashes nothing can compete against NASCAR. If you allow cars to go more than 300 km/h around the track and most of the time bumper to bumper, the chances of contact with other competitors are incredibly high. For this reason, NASCAR might be the most dangerous contact sport there is.
If you’re a NASCAR enthusiast you might have watched the Talladega race on sunday. If you did, then you probably saw Carl Edwards big crash as he was heading towards the finish line. Actually, he was …

Crazy Rally Car Crash

This pass week we’ve seen a rally car tumble down a mountain and I have to say it was a really rough crash. But this one is a bit more spectacular. The car just goes flying into the air spinning like crazy.
What I think is the most amazing thing in this video is the driver walking out like nothing happened. Like I said…CRAZY!
