Miraculous Lada Crash

carnecks_weekly_five_lada_crash
Ah, the Lada, Russia's finest economy car since... never. Having been built since the 1980's and having only just ceased production in April of 2012, the Lada can no longer plague the streets of Russia with its horrid handling and atrocious build quality, and do you know what that means? That means miraculous crash videos like this one will no longer surface, but is that a good thing or a bad thing? You decide. Enjoy.

When you're American Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gittin Jr, what do you do in your free time when not burning the rear tires of your 650 horsepower Falken Tire Ford Mustang GT drift car? You chase an RC version of your own car through the K&N Filter factory, of course! Yes, you read that right, a 650 horsepower full-on drift car hunting down an RC car in the middle of a factory. Does it get any better than this? Enjoy.

James Glickenhaus' Le Mans underdog custom creation the P4/5 Competizione is an amazing machine. Based off the F430 GT2, armed with a 4.0 liter V8 and able to lap the Nurburgring almost as quick as the legendary Pagani Zonda R, the P4/5 is a gargantuan threat in the world of racing, mostly because of its constantly-growing racing pedigree and inspiring technical setup, but you can't forget that spine-tingling roar, which is conveniently captured by YouTuber "marchettino" during the Pistenclub trackday event at Imola circuit. The P4/5 is a magnificent machine and though you may never hear it in person, you can still enjoy the race-bred howl of that 500 hp V8 echoing through the Italian forests. Enjoy.

If you watched the video above, then you experienced the sound of a pure-bred race car, but you are about to be completely and utterly spoiled beyond repair as you are treated to the raw, untamed sound of thousands of explosions within the confines of a 6.3 Liter Ferrari V12 engine that cause it to produce a stupefying 950 horsepower, a sound akin to the roar of thunder, or perhaps, a million bees on fire, with bombs attached to them. This, is what the FXX-inspired, Edo Competition ZXX Enzo is, a complete monster. Enjoy.

You can never be too sure of anything in the world of racing, even at the beginning of a race - and ESPECIALLY at the beginning of a race. The beginning of a (sprint) race is probably one of the most dangerous and action-packed moments in the entire 60 minutes of non-stop, fender-to-fender, intense racing action that is a sprint race. Everything from spinouts to pile ups is possible at the start of a race, as seen here during Round 11 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia when driver Mak H Tak causes an incident that will make you think twice about stepping into a race car. Its not all that bad, but anything and everything can happen in racing, so be careful out there. Enjoy.
