This is the craziest racing I’ve ever seen. It’s like the Isle of Man TT but instead of racing the clock, they’re racing each other at the same time! Nuts.
Automotive journalist Chris Harris had the opportunity to ride along in some classic rally cars driven by some professional rally drivers and the results were absolutely spectacular. Make sure you have those speakers on!
The Swiss have some of the most awesome hillclimbing races. Here’s some of the best half hour of hillclimb video I’ve seen. Worth the watch if you’re into auto racing.
I was in Budapest last week for the Automattic company meetup and during that meetup a bunch of us went out go karting. I took my GoPro HD Hero 1 with me and mounted it onto my go kart using a suction cup. The videos turned out pretty cool (although lighting was an issue) so I thought I’d post two of them here.
The Opening Race
I had gone to this place a few days before so I already knew the track and the karts but most of the people I was racing against where new to the track and karts, hence the speed differences.
The Championship Race
The people who posted the top 7 best lap times were put into a starting grid and had a final race off. The track’s narrow width made it nearly impossible to pass but it was still quite fun!
The final lap (starting at about 8:20) was a victory lap which is why I was goofing around and trying to powerslide.
Some great racing:
