Top Gear's Richard Hammond On How Not To Drive Your Car Around Corners

Car approaches corner, car turns around corner, car continues on. It sounds so simple, if it wasn’t for all that silly physics stuff.

Video Compares Pit Stops In F1 Racing, NASCAR, Indy Car And More

F1 Racing is like driving jets on the ground. NASCAR is like racing monster cars in sheet metal around an oval. Indy Car are powerful beasts themselves.

This Simulator's Steering Wheel Is Strong Enough To Break Your Wrists

So how realistic do you like your simulators? Some racing fans are willing to spend thousands of dollars on displays, controls, and seats that move and shake to enhance their virtual driving experience. But a company called CXC Simulations is taking things to a whole new level with a new force feedback steering wheel that’s actually strong enough to injure the driver.


It's Impossible To Tell The Difference Between Real Life And Video Games

I know which one is reality and which one is video game graphics, and yet my brain keeps flip flopping and pretending like the video game is real life and real life is actually the game. The graphics are so impressive that in some angles I honestly can’t tell which is which.


I Want To Play This 8-Bit Video Game Version Of The Fast And The Furious

The Fast & Furious movies today are fun, blood pumping action movies with a few car scenes spliced in. But the original movie that kicked it all off, The Fast and The Furious, was pretty much all about cars. This 8-bit racing game version sums the movie up pretty well. I would have loved to play this game as a kid.


The Future Of Racing Looks So Much More Fun And Badass

This video on the future of racing — based on concept tires designed by Hankook Tire and the University of Pforzheim, Germany — is pretty goddamn fun.

Jaust's New Music Video Will Make You Miss Your Slot Cars

Underground street racing isn’t exactly a secret, after all, how many The Fast and the Furious movies have been made about it by now? But underground slot car racing? That sounds like the kind of illegal — but not really illegal — activities we can get behind.


Drag Boat Racing Shoots Up An Awesome Wall Of Water Behind It

Video: These boats racing against each other pack nearly 8000 horsepower and can hit speeds of 418km/h. Basically, they’re really, really fast. But what’s even cooler is what the boats leave in their wake, a perfect wall of water that shoots out and up into the sky. It’s like they’re tearing the water apart.


Formula E's First Race Ends With A Massive Crash

The first ever all-electric Formula E race happened in Beijing over the weekend, and despite the mostly silent competition, there was one particular racing incident that was more exciting than anything Formula 1 has shown in a while.


Here's A F1 Car Racing Against A Motorcycle Racing Against A Supercar

Video: For a second, you think hey maybe the motorcycle has a chance in this Top Gear bit since it screams to a lead but then the land-based jet machine insanity known as an F1 race car steps it up and the other two are fighting not to get lapped by the closest thing we have to a teleportation device on Earth.
