Group B is Back

It’s been announced that, quite incredibly, the Group B rally cars that were banned in the 80s for being “too fast” and “too dangerous” are going to make an astonishing come back. The icons from the 80s are set to return during the weekend of 25-26 August for a new UK based event that will take place in Cheshire and North Staffordshire.
Legends and Tragedy
The event has already had more than 60 entries and is shaping up to be a fantastic weekend of old school rallying […]

And it’s GO GO GO…

The Formula 1 season is now underway, however, FP1 and FP2 haven’t revealed much we didn’t already know; the Mercedes looks much improved and the McLaren’s are strong once again. The real test, however, comes in qualifying tomorrow!

Formula 1 Pre-Season Testing

The Formula 1 season is fast approaching and, provided you follow us on Twitter, you’ll be fully aware that I’m quite F1 obsessed. It was my childhood dream, like many people I’m sure, to become an F1 driver, however the closest I get to such feats is a casual bit of go-karting.
The pre-season test sessions are in full swing and at the moment it’s difficult to judge the relative performance of all the different manufacturers.
Newly named Lotus F1 stormed out of the blocks with their […]
