Switch between pump and race fuel at the push of a button. Sort of. We’ve made it – three months of weekly tidbits designed to whet everyone’s appetite for what Dodge believes will be the most amazing factory drag racer of all time. The last thing you need to know about the soon-to-be-revealed Challenger SRT Demon is that it can run on 100-octane race fuel. In fact, the manufacturer says it’s the first ever factory-production car designed to handle both race fuel and pump gas on-demand. But there’s a catch, and if we’re honest, it’s a fairly big one. Remember the Demon Crate we talked about a few weeks ago, chock full of tools and parts that will come with every car? SRT Demon owners wanting to run 100-octane race fuel will need to delve into that crate for a new powertrain control module (PCM) and install it, along with a new switch bank for the center stack that features a neat gas button. Once hooked up, pressing the button will allow the car to operate on pump … [Read more...] about The Last 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Teaser May Give You Gas

The Boost Mobile boss has been a long-time backer of Courtney, but upped his support of the 2010 champion during a difficult 2020 campaign.

"We really didn't have a lot of chance to prepare [in 2020]," Adderton said. "I think JC's got a better chance this year. He knows the car.

An agonising 13-year wait for a British winner in the WRC finally came to an end on Sunday. Kris Meeke responded to his critics in emphatic style with victory in Argentina, a car-breaker of a rally in which just about every leading runner experienced trouble of one kind or another. It was precisely the sort of event where the 35-year-old had ample opportunity to live up to his reputation and squander the healthy lead his rivals' woes had gifted him, but British rally fans were spared heartbreak as Meeke held on to win by 18 seconds from Citroen teammate Mads Ostberg. The Ulsterman's triumph was a timely one, as the pressure had been mounting just to bank a solid result in South America following crashes in each of the first three events of the season. But, while the importance of Meeke's victory for his career can barely be overstated, its impact on the currently moribund level of interest in rallying in the UK is an altogether different question. The good old days … [Read more...] about Can Meeke revive British interest in rallying?
