Anthony Davidson 2012 24 Hours Of Le Mans Crash

carnecks_weekly_five_overdrift
Spoiler alert for those of you who haven't seen the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans yet. This is a massive crash that almost makes Allan McNish's crash of 2011 seem ...not so scary. On none other than the very end of one of the fastest, longest straights in all of racing, a Toyota and a Ferrari collide, sending both cars into the tire wall not far from them, at unfortunately high speeds. The intensity of the crash's impact is matched closely by the result - Anthony Davidson breaking two vertebrae. The Ferrari driver Perrazini seems to be alright, but let this be a reminder that all of the excitement racing provides comes at a price.

Charlotte, North Carolina's world-famous tuning company Underground Racing is known for its premium quality, high horsepower turbocharged exotics, such as the Twin-Turbo Gallardo, Ford GT, and even a few Ferraris. However, now they've got a new addition to the team - the Audi R8 V10. The 5.2L V10 is taken from its stock output of 525hp, to a mindblowing, face-slapping, nearly double 1000+ hp. How do they do it? Well, watch the video - not to find out, but to be treated to the ear-splitting sound of 1000 German horses being set free to pollute our minds with unadulterated levels of power. Enjoy.

Ruff. That's the sound a dog makes. However, if you remove that last letter, you get one of the greatest Porsche tuning companies ever to exist. The legendary 911 RUF Yellowbird was an absolute beast in its own right, almost always pouring smoke from its rear tires as it lit up the unforgiving corners of the Nurburgring - practically sideways. RUF is now making a new car, the RUF CTR 3. Will it be a true successor to the Yellowbird? Do you want to hear the history of RUF? Are you bored and just want to watch something both interesting and fascinating? Look no further than this. Enjoy.

What happens when you put a creative mind, a few tiny video projectors, and some video? You get "Speed of Light", a short, yet amazing video created by "The Theory". An escaped convict, a determined cop, a helicopter, and even a Ford GT make for one fascinating police chase. Enjoy.

Ferdinand Porsche probably wouldn't approve of this video, nevertheless its still worth the watch. Feast your eyes on what appears to be a tuned Porsche 911 964 going sideways on a circuit somewhere in Japan. Enjoy.
