Зачем наша героическая украинская армия, несущая шлейф славных побед с тех самых " 100 подвигов УПА ", сконцентрировала своё боевое внимание на месте падения обломков Boeing 777 ?!  Чтоб, как говорят эти повстанцы, "Киевские власти развязали бои рядом с местом падения Boeing 777, чтобы уйти от разоблачения"???! Ложь!!!

    I didn’t want to write anything about what happened at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in New York on Saturday night. There’s no clarity I can bring to this incredibly sad situation. But I must say that my thoughts, love, hugs and prayers are with the family and loved ones of Kevin Ward Jr. I have Tony Stewart in my thoughts too, wishing strength and support for him and the Ward family.

  • NASCAR adds rule on exiting cars after crashes

    Brian Dulle
    15 Aug 2014 | 7:26 am
    BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — NASCAR added a rule Friday ordering drivers to not approach the track or moving cars after accidents. The announcement comes less than a week after a driver was struck and killed during a dirt-track race in New York. If a car is involved in an accident and can no longer keep going — and no extenuating circumstances exist such as smoke in the cockpit or fire — the driver should not loosen any personal safety equipment until directed to do so by safety personnel or a NASCAR or track official. After being told to exit the car, the driver should proceed to an…

I remember a crowd full of people enthusiastically booing Dani Pedrosa on the grid and cheering Nicky Hayden’s crutches on the podium. I remember Valentino Rossi. I remember Nico Terol. I don’t remember much of the second time, either. A brief mental snippet from Saturday morning as bikes stream past – two seconds, maybe three. Enough to know that it was real and that I did not…
  • What Can This NASCAR Driver Teach You About Optimal Hydration?

    14 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    After racecar driver Michael McDowell switched to NASCAR from sports cars and Indy cars in 2007, he suffered extreme dehydration on a track in Virginia and went looking for a solution. “I was doing a lot of research and trying to find out how to stay hydrated,” says McDowell, a Phoenix-area native who moved to Charlotte in 2004. “At the time, I was losing anywhere from 8 to 10 pounds per race of water during the race itself. I was trying to figure out a way to stay hydrated. You’re in the car four or five hours. It’s 110 to 130 degrees inside the car. Obviously, in our sport,…

    The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X was rumoured to be on its last legs for a while and has since been confirmed as leaving the market after the 2015 model year, but before it does, it will get a special refresh. Rumours have been flying about what Mitsubishi will do to send off the road-going machine and it seems as though the company will be producing a limited-edition Special Action Model Evolution X.

  • Reasons Why Rural and Urban Car Buyers Are So Different

    Elliot Chan
    28 Aug 2014 | 7:15 am
    Ever wondered why rural dwellers prefer noticeably different cars from their urban counterparts? The cliché is that rural inhabitants prefer trucks and SUVs, while urbanites prefer hatchbacks and sedans. The truth is that rural and urban car buyers live in completely different environments and lead completely different lifestyles, which, of course, means that their automotive needs are completely different as well. Let’s tell a tale about two car owners: One lives in the congestion of the city, the other lives in the open countryside. One considers their vehicle as an option, the other…
  • Ontario to Impose a $1,000 Fine for Distracted Driving

    Katie Bryan
    27 Aug 2014 | 9:06 am
    A proposed new law will soon force Ontarians to pay a hefty fine if they are caught using a cellphone while driving. In fact, as early as this fall, fines for distracted driving will increase from $60-$500 to $300-$1,000. The new law will also ensure that maximum of three demerit points are added to the driver’s record, since there are currently no demerit points issued for using a smartphone while driving. These penalties would make Ontario drivers the most heavily-fined in all of Canada – but that may be a necessity. According to the Ontario Provincial Police, earlier this year, the…
