While it was painful to watch, no one was thankfully hurt. One of the best parts about the Goodwood Festival of Speed is seeing some immaculately restored vehicles, whether production or purpose built, have a go at the fast and tight hillclimb course laid out for the four day event. It's great to see the latest concept vehicles, teased production models, and myriads of exotics have a run, too, but nothing beats the nostalgia of seeing your childhood hero cars. Gallery: 1985 Lancia Delta S4 48 Photos Case in point, seeing a Lancia Delta S4 Group B rally car have a go is a treat for any car lover, and the raw power and unique sound is a literal time machine to the most dangerous and craziest era of 80s rallying. Unfortunately, things don't always go as planned. In a short clip from our fellow co-workers at motorsport.com , we see the Lancia Delta S4 … [Read more...] about See a Lancia Delta S4 crash at Goodwood FoS

Though it shared a number of similarities with the outgoing car, the A610 introduced new features like pop-up headlights, a more sculpted rear, and a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that produced 247 horsepower (184 kilowatts). While less plentiful on the used market than … [Read more...] about 17 foreign market cars you can legally import into the U.S. in 2017
After a spate of tyre failures at last year's British Grand Prix, the FIA took a two-pronged approach to addressing the loads on tyres in 2021 by first mandating an estimated 10% downforce cut with a package of aero reg updates, and later by homologating a more robust construction that Pirelli tested late last season. Isola says that although F1 teams have already clawed back around half of the downforce lost due to the aerodynamic changes, the increased margin combined with the new construction has allowed Pirelli to meet its target of dropping the minimum pressures. Speaking after Friday practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix, Isola said that the tyres "are working as expected". "If you look at our prescriptions, we are 1.5 psi lower on the front and 2psi lower on the rear, talking about the starting pressure," he explained. “That was one of the targets of the introduction of the new construction, because the new construction is more robust. And so we can use it at a … [Read more...] about Pirelli would have been “stupid” not to use more robust 2021 tyre
Last week at Motorsport.com , we delved into the best 1991 had to offer and dusted off several motorsport gems - from arguably Ayrton Senna’s greatest Formula 1 title, to the worst F1 cars of the year, and the all conquering TWR Jaguar XJR-14.
