Cool Vehicle Sighting

Even in COVID, you sometimes come across something interesting out in the wild.

 

Turkey Day Video Break (from Turkey)

Great scenery and footage.  You just don’t generally get to see Citroen and Suzuki hatchbacks move that fast on this side of the ocean.

While we’re on the subject of Rally, here’s a bonus video I stumbled across, with some great classic Rally rigs in sloppy snow action.

Don’t Do This

Someone clearly chose the wrong tool for the job in this case.  Amazingly, this is part of an annual event called the Leadfoot Festival, which they promote as a family friendly celebration of all things motorsport.

Looks like fun, as long as you’re not piloting the Rat Trap dragster in the video…

Boogity, Boogity, Amen. Stereotypes, pt. Deux.

It’s now official viral.

NASCAR Stereotypes (exist for a reason)

It pains me to pass this along, due to the unavoidable reinforcement of many NASCAR stereotypes, but it’s just too good not to post…

Baja in Texas? Sure. Why not?

Seems like every time I turn around I find another race series I had never heard of.  In this particular case, I came across a new (to me) off road  racing site and a story about Baja Racing of Texas.  Sounds like a pretty cool little event at one of those tiny Texas ranches.  Not sure I’ll become an official fan, but the photo gallery here has some great rigs.

It Always Comes Back to Racing

I’m not even sure what the technical description of this sport is, but it looks like a good time…I think.
