    Video: Gran Turismo vs reality as Red Bull pro-gamer takes on Nismo pro racer
    1388536140

    The last time we saw a real racing driver pitted against a professional gamer, Viagame threw one of each in a Renault Megane RS and the contest was staged as the pro driver navigated the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

    Video: Why we love racing and racing drivers
    1386770460

    The Racers starts off with a quote from legendary racecar driver Sir Stirling Moss: "There are two things no man will admit he cannot do well... Drive and make love."

    Video: Crazy crash at LeMons race caught on camera
    1383080520

    This video from the 2013 Halloween Hooptiefest 24 Hours of LeMons race is the kind of scary stuff that keeps us reviewing cars instead of racing them. This driver is puttering about, carrying good speed and, from the brief recording we can see, driving quite well. That is, until another driver, ...

    Video: Ford GT40 makes historic return to racing at Goodwood
    1382569200

    Is there a more iconic, American racecar than the Ford GT40? That may be a discussion for another day (although by all means, tell us how wrong we are in Comments), but this video of heaps of GT40s running in the Goodwood Revival races certainly has us thinking that Ford's Ferrari-killer might ...

    The mobile gaming revolution has slowly crept its way across the many, many genres in the video game world, ranging from flight simulators, to strategy games, to role-playing games, to the kind of simple, casual-play titles like Angry Birds and Candy Crush.

    1381249800

    "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." That must be the motto of the go-kart driver shown in this video. After an attempt to pass on the outside of a dirt oval track, he has a hard introduction with the wall (in what appears to be the worst possible way), but quickly shakes it off and ...

    When this author was 15 years old, he was busy not being very good at cross country and too nervous to ask a cheerleader to homecoming. It's safe to say that 15-year-old Aurora Straus's teenage years have been far more exciting, as she's already spent time racing a Porsche Boxster and that opium ...

    Video: Autocar pits Formula Ford against Germany's finest
    1380153540

    Ford has quite the racing pedigree, but usually, its racers are relegated to the track. Not the new Formula Ford EcoBoost, though.
