Nissan Deltawing Attacked By Green Porsche During Road Atlanta Testing

Nissan's Deltawing is a fantastic achievement in the discipline of auto racing, with fantastic handling and power, due to a team of fantastic engineers and especially due to that low height and center of gravity that the odd, yet unique shape of the Deltawing prides itself on. However, there issues when it comes to having such a small, low race car, as was seen in the Le Mans Prototype-related crash in this year's 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans, which put the Deltawing out of the race, but not out of hope. Unfortunately for Nissan, it looks like luck just isn't on their side just yet, a sis shown in this video footage of the Nissan Deltawing experiencing a horrific 7 G crash at high speeds, due to an amateur move by a contending green Porsche. The Deltawing is down, but this time its not out, as this incident occurred during testing, and the Deltawing was planned to be back in commission for the big race only a day or two later. Keep it up Nissan. Enjoy.

A Red Bull RB7, David Coulthard, the Lincoln Tunnel, and 190 MPH

If you were planning on traveling using the Lincoln Tunnel - the tunnel that can take you straight from New York to New Jersey - on August 16th, 2012, then you probably couldn't even get close, because an F1 car was too busy flying through it at 190 miles per hour. Oh, you didn't hear? Well, supposedly, in order to create some hype for the upcoming F1 race in New Jersey, the 2013 Grand Prix of America, Red Bull decided to take their RB7 Formula One racecar, put F1 champion David Coulthard inside, and let that F1 car rip - up to 190 mph to be exact. What's it like to get from New York to New Jersey in under a minute? Well, you've got to be going 190 mph to find out. Enjoy.

Giving a quick briefing on the 962, its history, and setup, Chris soon hops in and embarks on this loud, raw, historical journey. Enjoy.

The Flying Toyota Supra - Brakes Fail

carnecks_weekly_five_flying_supra
Ahhhhh, the Mark IV Toyota Supra. We've seen it do everything from embarrassing exotics on the road, to embarrassing every other car imaginable on the drag strip, to overtaking cars on the track sideways, to undressing presumably-Russian females whilst mid-drift (pun intended?) Without a doubt, there's nothing like the Supra, what HASN'T it done that the internet hasn't experienced yet? Well, now it looks like the Supra can add something else to its list of fame-inducing awesomeness - what's that you say? Yes. Flying. Flying? Yes, flying. As you can see here, in the middle of an intense Time Attack session on some race track, this murdered-out Toyota Supra goes into a corner, but shortly realizes that the brakes are gone as it crests a hill and is sent soaring - somewhat sideways - through the air, into the grass. Suspension and exhaust is reported to be damaged, but that seems to be the only price to pay for this Supra to race another day. All in a day's work for the MKIV Toyota Supra. Enjoy.
