Where's Rally? A Map of All 2015 North American Stage Rallies

One of the complaints I hear most often from aspiring rally fans is the all too common "there's no events near me!" Last year I attempted to help fix this by creating a map of all the stage rallies in North America. Now, with the 2015 rally season officially starting this week with Michigan's Sno*Drift Rally (I'm on… » 1/26/15 1:23pm Yesterday 1:23pm

Show me: the best one-shot music videos

I'm in one of those moods. Show me the best music videos where the entire video was filmed in one continuous shot with a single camera. Obviously I expect a lot of Ok Go, since they've pretty much mastered the genre (and that's fine by me, I'm a fan of their work), but bonus points for videos that aren't from the… » 1/23/15 1:42pm Friday 1:42pm

Welcome, everyone, to the third full season of Fantasy WRC. Monte Carlo is just ten days away, and I for one am itching for the new season to get underway.

Winter driving: you're doing it wrong

The wiggly lines created by the spinning front wheels pretty much tell the story. This was on a 2,000 foot uphill. I reached the traffic backlog at the bottom of the hill at 4:13, finally passed this stricken Toyota at 4:20. Seven minutes for less than 2,000 feet. To his credit he was still trying by the time I… » 1/03/15 10:19pm 1/03/15 10:19pm
