I’ve been watching plenty of rallycross videos, since catching notice of Subaru’s Launch Control series on Youtube. However what I recently found, I thought was worth sharing. Although you’d think that AWD would rule the Rallycross arena, the 2wd class has some exciting battles too.
Enter this RX-8. It isn’t the car that I would think of when selecting a 2WD rallycross car, but this one has got the business all over it!
We’re going to Formula D Seattle this weekend. So, of course we’re going to car-nerd chat about things before going. Most of us on the blog do some racing ourselves, and so we value our track-walks and preparation of how we get ready to hit the track.
…as a two-wheel drive rally car. Bill Caswell, and the team over at Build/Race/Party have always been known for doing awesome grassroots racing projects, but this was just looks straight fun! Check out William Petrow at Team ONeal Rally School, having some fun.
We might need to forget any drifting ambitions we had, and get a 240SX for rally!
So what happens if you tried to race a BTCC bike with a lawnmower? Well, you’d need to start out with something pretty special, right?.
Darren Heath has been taking photography of Formula One for thirteen years. You’ve probably seen his work in several magazines and online publications, and never even known that it was his. He’s won multiple awards because of his shots.
Hey y’all, I’m Philip Thompson from East Tennessee.
I currently race “classic cars” on dirt ovals locally. This past season, I have had a breakout performance claiming 16 feature wins! I grew up around dirt oval, following my dad and helping him on his cars from a young age. Karting on dirt ovals was my first experience behind the wheel after a brief stint in motocross.

So it’s Friday, and my brain is tangled up in writing another article, so here is Kimi racing a lawnmower. Also I’ve got two questions for everyone.
- Why isn’t lawnmower racing more of a thing? I mean they already have a lawnmoyer that can go 117mph.., so why don’t we see more of that?
- Do you think that Ferrari’s contract only is allowing Kimi to just go lawnmoyer racing, outside of F1?
Enjoy the weekend, guys.

Hello StartingGrid.org viewers! My name is Kyle Keenan, and I’ve grown up around racing.
As a child, I grew up rolling indy car tires around Rolla Vollstedt’s race shop in Portland, Oregon. When the opportunity arrived at the age of 6 to hop in a kart, with the help of my Dad, I began racing. Since then, I’ve raced everything from dirt oval karts, shifter karts, a couple drift events, road rallies, autocrosses, and of course, road racing. More recently, I’ve competed in SCCA’s US Majors Tour, Pirelli World Challenge, and ICSCC events.
If there one track that you want to have pretty down, it’s the Nurburgring. Sabine Schmitz isn’t the “Queen of the Ring” for nothing, as she passes over forty cars in two laps of the Nordschleife in the rain during a VLN race.
Epic doesn’t even begin to describe it.
