Matra 670.

Le Mans is coming in June!  Exciting times this year with the return of Alpine.  What better way to celebrate than a tribute to the wonderful Matra 670.   The video at the bottom is really quite wicked.

this beautiful painting is by Yuriy Shevchuk:

video of the day. chassis test.

Before the fantastic Renault Alpine A110-50 put on its futuristic body, it underwent testing!  As we know, the A110-50 is based on the Megane Trophy, and has been adapted and tweaked into the A110-50.  It’s pretty wicked to watch the skeleton going around the track…courtesy of the excellent Type 01

video of the day. A310 V6.

I’m not sure how they mounted this onboard camera for this drive (is it on his shoulder!?), however the effect is that it makes you feel like you’re sitting between the driver and navigator…..very disorienting, however feels like you’re really in that superb Alpine A310 V6

video of the day. the insane sounds of the R18 e-tron quattro.

Audi 1-2-3-4 at Spa today.  Wicked.

Here’s a fascinating onboard video of the R18 e-Tron quattro from earlier today at Spa.  Saw this video at the excellent Audi Motorport Blog, who described it as a “spaceship”—-i completely agree!

Corvette C6R @ Le Mans

I’ve always conceded that Chevrolet have had amazing success in the GT/GTE class at Le Mans—–but the SOUND of the Corvette C6R is a GLORIOUS noise.  Here is an onboard lap of Le Mans with a C6R from a warm up lap in 2008.  I love hearing that lazy V8 rumbling…..today’s race is no different!

Mike Hawthorn + mic at chest + traffic + le Mans + D-Type = so cool.

What a sweet bizarre video!  They put a regular broadcasting mic to Hawthorn’s chest, and them set him loose in a D-type going around the Le Mans circuit with bicyclists just cruising down the track.  filmed in 1956.  Epic cool.

video of the day. Fulvia 1.6 HF

Yet another glorious video of a Lancia Fulvia 1.6 HF. There’s nothing like the rumble of that fantastic V4.  Nice bit of driving on a pretty funky road, as well.   The IEDEI obsession with this car continues….
