The Future Of Formula One May Involve Two-Stroke Engines
Formula One is one of the most popular racing series to exist. The series started back in 1950 and, for better or worse, has been evolving ever since. Currently, Formula One cars are using the same 1.6-liter, DOHC, 90-degree, turbocharged V-6 engines that make around 1,050 horsepower. Although the current engines will be used until 2025, they might be replaced by two-stroke units, if the proposal is approved.

The Coolest Cars to Win 24 Hours of Le Mans
Le Mans is one of the greatest tests of endurance where man and machine are tested for 24 hours at speeds in excess of 200 mph. Almost a century ago, the race began as a showcase for manufacturers to prove their vehicles’ sturdiness in competition.

The Greatest Formula 1 Rivalries
Formula 1 is one of the most high-strung sports, involving peak performance cars, elite drivers and millions of dollars in investment and advertising. When the stakes are so high, it is not surprising for rivalries to emerge between the drivers. In fact, they are subtly encouraged and facilitated by the nature of the sport to encourage interest from the fans. Over the years, though, some of these spats were not superficial but quite heated due to the respective egos and team dynamics. Rumors of the tension spread via the media, but the animosity shone through during races or public events once in a while. Some of them took place within the teams themselves, much to the chagrin of the managers, while others occurred between differently placed contenders. The following list takes a look at the most intense title rivalries up to date.
Emilia Hartford No Longer Has The Most Powerful C8 Corvette
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the most desired sports cars on sale today. So much so that GM is having difficulties keeping up with demand.

Speaking of performance, ever since YouTuber Emilia Hartford built her own twin-turbo C8 “Vette” – the most powerful one in the world – we knew the race was on. And now, someone else has built an even more powerful one.
Drag Race: Can The Mustang GT Convertible Take On The GR Supra?
The Toyota GR Supra is one of the most controversial vehicles of our time because of what it’s based on.

With a BMW-derived (but Toyota-improved) 3.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-six that makes 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet (499 Nm) and a quick-shifting, ZF eight-speed automatic, it manages a 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.9 seconds. However, a Mustang GT with a 10-speed auto steps up to challenge the GR Supra.
Crazy Race: Lamborghini Urus vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs Audi TTRS vs Golf R
