  1. <Why Koenigsegg Never Went Racing, And Why It Doesn't Plan to Start Christian von Koenigsegg explains why his cars have never competed at Le Mans, and why he doesn't intend to participate in the new Hypercar class. KOENIGSEGG Despite building some of the most innovative supercars on earth, Koenigsegg does not currently have a racing team. That's not for lack of trying: Founder Christian von Koenigsegg actually built a viable race car with intent to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans when his company was in its infancy. But it never happened, and during a lengthy conversation with
  2. <Gran Turismo 7 Brings Back Another Fan-Favorite Fictional Circuit In A Big Way Deep Forest Raceway receives a new lease on life and a controversial final sector change for GT7. Gif: PlayStation Studios When Trial Mountain appeared in the first trailer for Gran Turismo 7 more than a year ago, longtime fans pumped their fists into the air. The fictional circuit — present in every Gran Turismo except for the Prologue entries and GT Sport — will return fully remodeled in 4K, with variable weather and time-of-day change taking advantage of the full power of the PlayStation 5. It will
  3. Title is self-explanatory, but now I need to use this alongside proof of GT Academy graduates like Lucas Ordonez and Jann Mardenborough to show my mother why all those years of playing video games weren't a waste of time!
  4. Hey guys ! Just curious and wanting to know cars that have a similar technology to what Formula 1 car has. The closest could ever get to a formula 1 car and why. Could be looks, technology, speed, all of the above? you name it. Personally my top 2 picks are the LaFerrari as it is as close as it could get to a F1 car for its technology, and Lexus LFA for its Screaming V10 sound.
  5. What three motoring things would you like to achieve before you go? (that you have a reasonable chance of) For me it would have to be 1. Own a classic muscle car of some sort 2. Drive the Nurburgring 3. Own a Caterham / Ariel (or one of it's derivatives)
  6. Jaguar congratulates Carvell Motorsport on debut win for Jaguar XF Diesel On its race debut, a Jaguar XF 3.0 Diesel S, run by privateer squad, Carvell Motorsport, has won its class and finished as the leading diesel-powered vehicle at the Nurburgring 24hrs. http://www.xfforum.co.uk/threads/8611-Jagu...aguar-XF-Diesel Carvell Motorsport Jaguar XF 3.0 Diesel S The XF, with Nathan Freke, Colin White and Rob Carvell at the wheel, was powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine producing 300PS and 600NM of torque.

  7. SSC calls it quits with SG Changi for motorsports hub The Singapore Sports Council (SSC) announced on Monday it has terminated its agreement with private firm SG Changi to build the proposed Changi Motorsports Hub. SSC's chief executive officer Lim Teck Yin told reporters at a media briefing that the SSC found it would be "difficult for the project to succeed". The consortium was awarded the tender to build the hub in March last year but faced difficulties raising the estimated $380 million needed. Construction for the hub, which was to be completed by the end of the year, was h
  8. Hi ppls do anyone send their car to this workshop located near johor. I do have a bad experience as I just bought my wheel few week and intend to install a side skirt and etc. As what I alway heard from ppls around me saying that malaysia is a good place to do your car as in the price and the design. I randomly search online and found this website that seem quite attractive toward me the main thing is that the location is near to singapore checkpoint. After few hrs of installation when I reached home I realised that there are lot of gap between the sideskirt and I was thinking perhaps I should
  9. [extract] The countdown has started ahead of Volkswagen contesting the FIA World Rally Championship with the Polo R WRC from 2013. In the Neste Oil Rally Finland, the eighth of 13 World Championship rounds this year, the Volkswagen Motorsport team completed its first test rally with cars from the group brand
  10. When motorsports is mentioned, most people will think of the glitz and glamour of Formula One. After all, it is the most high-profile of all motorsports out there. But I'm sure that there are some fans of other kinds of motorsports, like the rough and tumble of rallying. Specifically, the World Rally Championship. The 2011 World Rally Championship is now three events old, but it's just such a pity that there's very little local coverage or interest. I've always been a fan of the WRC, probably more so than F1. I grew up watching those electric blue Subaru Impreza WRXs and red-and-wh
  11. While I totally fancy the current BMW Mini I find that the newly launched Countryman is a mini too far. Or in other words, there is nothing 'Mini' about it and it distorts the image of what a Mini is to such an extent that it looks pretty monstrous. And imagine when my discomfort when I found out that the Monster Energy X-raid team has unveiled the new MINI ALL4 'Countryman' racing which will compete in the 2011 Dakar rally series. A Monster team driving a monster Mini. How appropriate. So the largest of all Minis, gets a pretty tall suspension lift, lots of rally development and also rece
  12. [extract] The ultimate Porsche 911 around is the GT3 RSR race car that Porsche and customers run in GT races throughout the world. This non-road legal version of the venerable 911 is the ultimate interpretation of the timeless 911 and for 2011, Porsche has come out with the latest round of upgrades to the 997 based GT3 RSR. First previewed at the recent
  13. Another year, another racing Aston Martin. This time around it has previewed their revised for 2011 Vantage GT4 that will compete in various GT races around the world. The Vantage GT4 variants have to date competed in the FIA GT4 class races like the 24hour endurance races at the Nurburgring, Dubai and at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium. It also competes in its own one make series, making this Vantage racing program a very profitable race car program for Aston Martin. The Vantage GT4 isn
  14. Formula 1 has a new world champion in the shape and form of Sebastian Vettel. The Red Bull driver, who seemed to have started the 2010 Formula 1 season on a high, then faltered mid-season and then making a strong comeback even with a fabulous mid-season charge by Double World Champion, Fernando Alonso. Whatever the case, Formula 1 has a new World Champion and it was decided at the last race of the 2010 calendar, in Abu Dhabi last Sunday. I'd also have to add that it must be terribly disappointing for Alonso, who entered this race as championship leader. Finishing 7th basically scuppered a

  18. Lamborghini and Swiss luxury watchmaker Blancpain have come up with a special edition of Lamborghini's Gallardo. This is in conjunction with the successful pairing up in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo one make racing series featuring the Lamborghini Gallardo. The new special edition car is called the Gallardo LP570-4 Blancpain Edition. A mouthful, but a nice mouthful nonetheless. This latest Gallardo takes the essence or the spirit of the Super Trofeo Gallardo race car and makes it road legal. The first Gallardo Blancpain was unveiled on the 26th of September 2010 during the final
  19. Okay. The results for the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Singapore. Fernando Alonso of Ferrari wins. Sebastian Vettel comes in second and his team mate in the other Red Bull, Mark Webber was third. The Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix started off nicely without a pile up. This is good as we all know the fact that this race is run like Monaco, a street circuit and the starting grid was led by Fernando Alonso, Seb Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Mark Webber. However, this changed when Force India's Vitantonio Liuzzi suffered a broken suspension from a knock on lap 4. This first major inciden
  20. The Italian Formula 1 Grand Prix that was held last Sunday was won by Ferrari's Fernando Alonso. Considered as Ferrari's home race, the win is a poignant one for the team in what was quite an event filled race this time around. Of course, by event filled, this basically means the mad dash to the first corner at the start and the pit lane tire change strategies. The start and first lap tussles claimed Lewis Hamilton who couldn't continue after his steering column gave way due to a come together with Felipe Massa. The planned tire changes which caused various strategies to be mapped out an
  21. After a mid-season break, the Formula 1 Grand Prix is back again with the Belgian Grand Prix at the Circuit de Spa-Francochamps, a circuit both spectacular and emotive. The La Source hairpin, the downhill plunge to Eau Rouge, the forest setting and the longest lap distance in the Formula 1 World Championship which according to the Formula 1 drivers, a fabulous track to race on and a fantastic race for us to watch. This time, Lewis Hamilton driving the McLaren wins the pretty damp and wet race. The start was good for Hamilton, passing pole position Mark Webber of Red Bull. Then sometime on
  22. Somehow Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull seems to start in pole position but fail to capitalize on this. At the Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix last Sunday, his team mate, Mark Webber was instead the victor. With Lewis Hamilton of McLaren crashing out of the race, it looks like the championship chase is still an open book too. The race basically got on to a usual 'follow the leader' kind of opening lap but there was an incident that shook things up a little in lap 17. The Petronas Mercedes of Nico Rosberg lost a wheel right (below) after he pitted for a tire change. Upon pulling out the tire s
  23. The N. technology Porsche Panamera S has won a Superstars race at the Mugello circuit in Italy on debut. Driven by Fabrizio Giovanardi, the N.Technology Panamera posted a time of 28:55.886, which was 2.083 seconds faster than the runner up. Unfortunately, during the second race, Giovanardi was involved in an accident that affected the car's steering and knocked it out of contention. According to team principal Mauro Sipsz, "We are of course happy and very satisfied with the results: pole position and victory in Race 1, a good loot for the debut of our newest car!" The N.Technology Pana
  24. Ferrari has a 1-2 victory at the German Formula 1 Grand Prix at Hockenheim and Ferrari should not be proud about it. The reason was that Felipe Massa, after fighting tooth and nail for P1 against team mate Fernando Alonso and pole sitter Seb Vettel in the early stages of the race had to 'give way' to Alonso, letting Alonso win for the sake of the points in the driver's championship. I have just watched Scuderia Ferrari commit what was supposedly banned (team orders) in F1 by the most cunning way where Massa's engineer had said "So Fernando is faster than you? Can you confirm you understand tha
  25. The Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli is a Ferrari only racing series comprising of F430s, 360s, F355s and 348s. It will now have another Ferrari added to this list; the 458 Challenge. This new race car was revealed during the annual dealer meeting held recently and will join the other Ferraris on the grid in 2011. The photograph above is the one and only official picture released by Ferrari at the moment. The 458 Challenge race car will be equipped with the same engine, producing the same amount of power (562bhp at 9,000rpm) as the road going version. But we all know that horsepower alone
