WRC Rally Team – Hayden Padden New Zealand

WRC

Got an email of my good friend Steve Cotton from Cotton Competition who happens to be working for the New Zealand WRC rally team.

So thought I would show you the videos from the teams perspective and perhaps pretty apt to celebrate New Zealands Gracious win at the Rugby World Cup.

Hope to see you soon Steve and fetch me a jacket back….

Marco Simoncelli – Horrific Accident MotoGp Malaysia 2011

The Moto-GP race at Malaysia today was cancelled due to a horrific accident, resulting in the death of Marco Simoncelli.

His death comes a week after those of Baja Racer Rick Husemen and fellow Brit Dan Wheldon at Indy 500.

The horrific accident happened on the second lap of the Malaysian GP Circuit where his bike lost control of the Honda and catapulted on to oncoming riders Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.

Condolences go out to the family of Marco Simoncelli and friends and colleagues.

I am not going to show you the video as I feel personally its bad taste to publish the death of anyone including Gaddafi.

Subaru BRZ Production Prototype Spyshots

The Subaru BRZ is edging closer to a final production prototype, We recently spied the new pictures of the highly-anticipated Subaru FT-86 variant the BRZ.

The car will be exclusively Rear Wheel Drive.

Caught undergoing testing near the Nürburgring, the heavily camouflaged prototype looks virtually identical to the Toyota FT-86 but is distinguished by a revised front bumper and LED daytime running lights.

The BRZ measures 4.2m in length, 1.8m wide and stands 1,3m high.

The rear-wheel drive (RWD) sports coupe will also feature Toyota’s direct-injection technology, called D-4S, the naturally-aspirated 2.0 litre horizontally-opposed Boxer engine is touted to have 200bhp.

Audi RS4 Avant B8 Spyshots at the Nurburgring

As a previous B5 RS4 owner I was left somewhat disappointed with the removal of the trademark forced induction from the 420ps B7 RS4, Now the 2013 Audi RS4 has shown its in production prototype on Germany’s Nürburgring.

The B8 Audi RS4 is incorporating a much more aggressive front fascia complete with lower and wider air intakes similar to the RS5 Coupe.

Rumors have suggested that an all-new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 could be put to use here and with the extensive competition from AMG and BMW M-Power it is looking likely.

Range Rover Sport Spied on the Nurburgring

The 2013 Range Rover will be the fourth generation superceding the original that was produced from 1970 to 1996, the second series platform lasted from 1994 to 2001, and the current “Stormer Concept” that has been in production post 2002.

These Spyshots even though heavily camouflaged hints at its longer wheelbase and completely revised shell.

By using the lightweight material, engineers could lose up to 40 percent from the weight of the current Range Rover’s unpainted body shell, equating to a saving of roughly 660 to 880 pounds. Advanced composites are also expected to be used for certain elements, such as the body panels and rear tailgate.
