The tweak to the pre-race routine saw race director Tim Schenken deliver a 'start your engines' directive on the open teams radio channel before the commencement of the warm-up lap. That message was broadcast live on TV before a near-simultaneous fire-up of the 24 cars sitting on the grid. According to Supercars TV boss Nathan Prendergast, the idea came from discussions with returning free-to-air broadcaster the Seven Network about better capturing "unique" elements of the sport. But it won't become a regular feature of race weekend, instead something that will be used sparingly as part of the broadcast package. "It was born from a discussion with Seven from them looking at moments in our sport that are unique," Prendergast told Motorsport.com. "We're just trying to take an internal look at the sport and see if there are cool moments that we just dismiss because we're all very familiar to it. Start your engines is very old school, but there's something about that … [Read more...] about Supercars trials new ‘start your engines’ procedure

Home Bike reviews oi-Rahul Nagaraj By Rahul Nagaraj Updated: Tuesday, March 2, 2021, 21:49 [IST] Rating: 4.0 Ever since Royal Enfield introduced the Himalayan back in 2016, the motorcycle has been receiving a number of timely updates and revisions. A significant update came in 2020 when the Royal Enfield received a revised engine to meet the latest BS6-emission norms, which came into effect from April last year.

The electric XC40 gets some visual pizzazz to compete in the crossover-coupe segment. Today is a big day for Volvo, not only because it's taking the wraps off the C40 Recharge, but also due to an important announcement made this morning. The Swedish brand part of the Geely Group – along with Polestar, Lotus , Proton, and Lynk & Co – has vowed to abolish the ol' internal combustion engine by the end of the decade. That’s right, there won't be any ICE-powered Volvos past 2030. To get there, Volvo will diversify its electric portfolio in the coming years, kicking off with the C40 Recharge. Essentially an XC40 with coupe-inspired styling cues, the second EV from the brand has a slightly lower roofline and a sportier rear end to capitalize on the crossover-coupe boom. While the standard XC40 can be had with gasoline engines, the new C40 comes exclusively with zero emissions.

From concept to production, changes couldn't be helped. Here's a thought: whenever your ride a car, whether as the one behind the wheel or just a passenger, have you ever imagined how the whole vehicle interior design came to fruition? I bet you haven't and that's okay; it isn't actually a big deal. Then again, vehicle cabin designs are just as important as exterior design studies. They all start with sketches, and General Motors wants to share the process with its fans by posting early sketches of its artists via its General Motors Design Instagram.
