|Video| Saxo-Insanity at Snetterton! Crazy first lap.

Take a look at the 750 Motor Club’s ‘Stock Hatch’ series around Snetterton in the UK. It’s seriously ‘Apocalypse Now’ with Saxos! Cars flying through the air, bumpers flying everywhere. If they tried this in the US, all of the drivers would be banned…

Driver trolling everywhere.

|Video| R6 Powered Go-Kart: I want this one #kart

Normally, I’m not a fan of motorcycle powered go-karts, because the ones I see are build with crappy frames and just have too much power to really do anything with.

This one is basically a micro-formula car or hyper-superkart. Sounds like this builder is thinking of installing traction control and putting a full body on it.

I want one…

AWD, Turbodiesel, Hybrid Endurance Racer- Yes, please!

This just blew my mind! Audi’s contender for the 2012 LeMans Series. The Audi R18 e-tron Quattro. (Sounds like something out of ‘Transformers’).

Quoted from Autoblog: “The two are part of the same system, regenerating brake energy (similar to F1’s Kinetic Energy Recovery System) into a flywheel that is then fed back into the front wheels under acceleration,the V6 TDI engine feeds 510 horsepower to the rear wheels for a combined through-the-road all-wheel-drive system. The added weight of the hybrid powertrain is offset by a carbon-fiber gearbox housing, used for the first time in endurance racing.”

Insane! Audi is running two versions of this car, with two ‘traditional’ R18 Ultras at Spa leading to the build up for LeMans.  Toyota’s hybrid contender might want to watch out!
