It would be awesome if someone made a Baja/Dakar version of the
car, but with todays parts and bits, in photoshop.
I think YasidDesign would do a marvelous job at it.
Lovely little car. Falls into a little anomaly as an F2 car that's not quite; more a jumped-up T11.
BRM P15, with a V16 home-made engine 1.5 liters and 485ch (best result, 5th at UK 1951)
Not heard of this one.
Now, UK Time Attack is a series that invites cars of all shapes and sizes to suit all budgets, so I've seen some variety in my time. What I didn't expect to see today was, well, a Vauxhall Astra van...
Odd vehicle choice aside, it actually had some decent pace from the word go. Its fastest time of the day was a 1:40, which isn't far off fully race-prepped Clio Cup cars.
I got one for you guys:
Nardi 750 Bisiluro (Le Mans racer)
Engine in the left side, driver on the right.
George Waltman Daytona Legend by Louis Galanos, on Flickr
Well, a Morgan Plus 4 isn't exactly an unbelievable car, but one that was probably about 15-20 years behind the times when it was raced by George S. Waltman at the 1968 24 Hours of Daytona. Mind you, it wasn't just raced by Waltman...it was actually driven from his home in Great Neck, New York to Daytona Beach, sans trailer. And naturally, he had no pit crew; thus, the vehicle was entirely repaired and refueled by George.
He finished 30th overall, 335 laps down to the Porsche 907LH driven by luminaries such as Vic Elford, Jochen Neerpasch, Rolf Stommelen, Jo Siffert, and Hans Herrmann. Maybe he would have finished a little higher, had the rules not stipulated that he had to sit out one hour for every four that he'd driven.
After the race, he'd changed the oil, changed his clothes, and headed on back to Great Neck. Don't laugh...we've all had this dream before, but George Waltman lived it out.
Anyone who's spent any time on Britain's motorway network won't be surprised by this at all. It doesn't matter how quickly you dare go, there will always be an Astra van that will want to be going quicker. Fact.
Another look at the horrible McLaren MP4/10, specifically the nose.
Spoiler: Alleged rare shot of it during winter testing
It attempted the Indy 500, but didn't make it past qualifying.
I think its best for its driver that it didn't....
When was that?
I know he based it off of a BV 141 but...I think he might have been smoking something whilst coming up with that...
I found out today there's a Rav4 rally car.
That's not really a car now isn't it lol
I find that pretty cool, to be honest. Toyotas have always been good on the road, and off-road. Best of both worlds!
And they can do 14 second quarter miles...A few people have gone 0-60 in abiut 5-6 seconds in RAV4s as well.
It's not a lorry either, is it.
Those tires looks stupidly small underneath that SUV.
It's not even 4wd, which is even funnier. It's the base, fwd model with a cage and rally suspension/brakes and tires and that's pretty much it.
I've just looked at the RAV4's results...
It's been finishing 1st and 2nd in class in its rallies so far! (and one unexplained DNF)
Lol, an SUV being driven OFF ROAD. Jokes aside, I think it's brilliant! And rather unique as well.
