It's late in the F1 season but we'd just like to share with you the uber cool manner in which Red Bull drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel tells us about what's different between the 2013 and 2014 cars. Watch the video below.
Last October 12, 2013, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) was set to hold the very first Vios Cup. Unfortunately, due to Typhoon Santi that hit the said region, TMP had to postpone the said motorsports festival to put everyone’s safety at the forefront.
This coming January 25,2014 – the Vios Cup is back! The number one automotive company in the country, invites you to not miss the chance in experiencing waku-doki, or heart-racing fun, at the Clark International Speedway in Pampanga!
The next generation of racing is closer than we think. Ever since the idea flew out of someone’s mouth last April 2011, FIA’s governing body has given its blessing to sanction Formula E: the world’s first full sized, zero emission, battery operated race. By September 10, 2014, high speed electric car races will start humming in the streets of city centers around the globe just like their nosier gas guzzling counterparts in F1. This little exercise is aimed to give battery-powered vehicles some street cred and hopefully advance the technology further after it has been given its paces. Something like how Ferrari perfected their paddle shifter in F1 then transferring the tech to their road cars.

23-year old New-Zealander Earl Bamber triumphed at the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia in Round 11 of the Shanghai Race. Martin Ragginger, Bamber’s closest competition, finished 2nd. The two drivers have been battling until this last event in Shanghai when Bamber sealed the victory of the 2013 Season.
Earl Bamber not only prefers to race to victory with Michelin tyres but he is also an instructor at the MICHELIN Pilot Experience, a Michelin event that lets participants get a chance to know what it feels like to be a race car driver for a day.
While speed, consistency and reliability are the ingredients that have helped the Volkswagen Motorsport duo on the way to their first world crown, the performance, strength and longevity of the tyres provided to them by the French tyre manufacturer proved valuable allies in their bid to claim the ultimate prize.
Volvo Polestar Racing will take part in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) races at Shanghai International Circuit in China with newly crowned Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC) champion Thed Björk.
