The Ford GT40: standing at just 40 inches in height it looks small, even as it passes a Ferrari 360 Modena. If you've never seen one in person, they really are incredibly compact, just the bare essentials of a mid-engine racing car with a body wrapped around it. The sound it makes, however, is anything but diminutive.
Adrenalin’s nearly three-minute preview is a proper homage to DTM’s history, but the transition to interviews with modern drivers and race footage is just as cool. Seeing today’s winged, big-fender Beemers take the fight to modern Audis is a great bookend for what promises to be an exciting movie.
On September 26 and 27, Revvolution watched a star-studded group of drivers battle at the Red Bull Global Rallycross Seattle. Round 9 was the penultimate race of the 2014 season, and it was Sverre Isachsen who took his—and Subaru’s—first win after Ken Block and Tanner Foust collided. Isachsen, a three-time European rallycross champion, capitalized on the on-track mayhem to take the lead on the first lap, then held on for all 10 laps to take the trophy and fifth place in the points. The win came at the perfect time for Subaru, as it has a large and dedicated granola-eating fan base in the Pacific Northwest. Olsbergs MSE’s Joni Wiman came in a very close second and Rockstar Energy Drink’s Brian Deegan took third, coming in at a jolting 12 seconds back.
So there I was, all sensitive and dealing with my stunted man emotions, when the Revvolution death star fired off an assignment about a stunt man. It is a review of an Adrian “Wildman” Cenni video, and was dubbed the “Worst Stunt Driver Ever” by my overlords. C’mon, man, I’ve done things with an International Scout, some ice and a toboggan (and beer) that rank at the top (bottom?) of any “Worst” stunt driving list. Unfortunately, I can’t prove it, as the video camera hadn’t been invented yet.
Recently I posted an article about how amazing the Maserati MC12 GT1 race car looked and sounded on track. That brief clip was under a minute and a half, but it did a great job of distilling the essence of the all-conquering MC12 GT1 racers. Naturally, the Revvolution team was mid-chubby for this machine even before the vid ended, so we fired up the Google to find moar. Now, for your viewing pleasure, here’s three MC12 GT1s doing battle on a racetrack.
