THEY SAY IT’LL BE LIKE HORSES. That once the world truly jibes with the self-driving car, humans will be moved to hang up the keys. Maybe through gentle social shaming at first. Then increased insurance costs or government regulation. Human-guided automobiles will be limited to private land or dedicated parks, as with horses or dirt bikes or anything else fun and whiffing of danger. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below This feature originally appeared in the September, 2018 issue of R&T.It’s also been suggested that we won’t have much choice—that eventually, new cars will winnow to a few sensible blueprints. Mostly short-range electric runabouts, mid-size SUVs, and throwback exotics. Those blueprints now power three growing segments of the new-car market. So we built a crystal ball of sorts, to suss a glimpse of the future. We rented a private hillclimb, for our own version of that driving park. And I spent a full day there, bombing around and thinking … [Read more...] about How Will It Feel When Computers Finally Kick Us Off the Street?

Ordinarily, posts here at Gas 2 are compilations of a story reported elsewhere mixed in with the personal perspective and experiences of the writer. This one will be an exception. It is a repost in its entirety of a blog entry at Guiness World Records. The story impressed me because it goes behind the scenes of a successful land speed record attempt and chronicles the commitment, toil, and dedication it takes to accomplish something like that. It also puts the spotlight on a creative and resourceful woman who did what few men have ever done. My wife liked that part and suggested I share it with you. I think you will like it too. The story is about Eva Håkansson, a woman who set a land speed record using a three wheel electric motorcycle she built in her garage. The vehicle, known as the KillaJoule, reached a staggering speed of 240.72 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in the summer of 2014. Eva has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and is working … [Read more...] about Woman Who Built LSR Electric Motorcycle Tells Her Story

We got a bit lucky with the safety car but yeah, really enjoyed it. A great turnout today, you saw in the grandstands, I really enjoyed the lap back in. And for the race, I mean my start, I was hoping for it to be a little bit better, but it didn’t really work, so I had to settle for third. And then, towards the end of that first stint I lost a little bit the connection to Lewis and Kimi ahead. I was struggling a little bit with the tyres. I felt happier with the soft tyres, with the yellow tyres at the end, for the second stint. Obviously I was praying for a safety and there was a car that stopped in Turn 4 and I was like ‘no, it’s not coming out’ … [Read more...] about Australia: FIA post-race press conference
