Aside from five minutes of two-stage pit-speed limiter practice on Saturday and five minutes of install laps on Sunday, the 24-car field will be granted just one-hour of practice (75mins for rookies) before qualifying gets underway. As was introduced on ovals last year, each driver’s first lap of qualifying will set the grid for Saturday’s race – the 212-lap Genesys 300 – and the second lap will set the grid for Sunday’s 248-lap XPel 375. Between qualifying and Race 1 on Saturday, the cars will be impounded, meaning that all teams and drivers will be setting their times on the heavier race downforce. This, according to Team Penske-Chevrolet’s Scott McLaughlin and Pietro Fittipaldi of Dale Coyne Racing with RWR-Honda, will simplify their task ahead of their first race on the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway. “Obviously we will be qualifying pretty much on race condition stuff and I think we start the race on our qualifying tires,” said McLaughlin, who ran his first oval … [Read more...] about Qualifying with race downforce at Texas will aid TMS novices

Same name, significantly different cars. Toyota presented its performance lineup in September 2017 with a three-tier hierarchy by positioning the all-show-without-extra-go GR Sport at the bottom of the food chain, followed by the midrange GR, and the flagship GRMN. In a drag race between a GR Yaris and a GRMN Yaris, you'd expect the latter to take the win, but it's not as simple as some might think because we're dealing with two different generations of the supermini. There are major differences between the two even though both share (most of) the same name. The old one is front-wheel drive whereas the current model sends its power to both axles. On a damp surface, like you’d expect to find in typically rainy UK, that makes all the difference since the GR Yaris has better traction off the line.

We need more small wagons in our lives. The 11th generation Honda Civic is officially a thing . The extremely popular compact car adopts an exterior taste that's a bit more conservative versus the outgoing machine, borrowing plenty of design cues from the larger Accord . Of course, it borrows the Accord's sedan format though it's also available as a hatchback. It won't be available as a wagon, but a new rendering from X-Tomi Design makes us yearn for a Civic Estate reboot. It's unclear whether the new Civic's conservative design language will help or hurt its future, but we think it's a key component to why this wagon interpretation works so well. Simple body lines allow the larger backside to look pretty darned natural on this updated model, though we also concede the end result is rather dull overall. Still, perhaps this could be a basis for a fun adventure-lifestyle vehicle aimed at the Subaru Outback . A little more ride height with a prominent roof rack could do … [Read more...] about 2022 Honda Civic Gets Wagon Makeover In Unofficial Rendering
