      In the land of car geeks, even those not obsessed with video gaming consoles and the like have probably sampled driving sim super games such as Forza Motorsport or Gran Turismo. What you may not know though is that there's a whole online driving sim world that takes the vehicle and racing accessibility of these games and amps them by a power of ten on the geek scale if not always on the realism scale. While some of these games ...
    2. Tom Kristensen Featured in Latest Rolex Print Ad for Daytona Perpetual Cosmograph



      Though Audi Sport partner TAG Heuer may have a better-known association with Le Mans thanks to Steve McQueen's wearing of their iconic Monaco chronograph in his equally iconic movie "Le Mans", luxury watchmaker Rolex is also quite steeped in the 24 Hours of Le Mans tradition.

    4. Find of the Day: 1961 DKW Formula Junior Racecar



      Vintage racecars with four-ring heritage aren't terribly common. Look back prior to the modern quattro era and it gets even harder to pick up something with any sort of racing pedigree. In as much, we were surprised to find a DKW-powered formula car on Ebay and hailing from a Philadelphia suburb no less.

      Granted, this car is $33,500, which will weed out tire kickers.

      Here's a rundown on the ...

    9. Audi Sport's Le Mans Winning Engineer Leena Gade Catches up with MINI Rally Engineer Sister at Goodwood



      Having just won Le Mans, we were surprised no shots of Audi R18 chief engineer Leena Gade had filtered through from Imola. Then, we caught this story from the Telegraph and all was clear. Seems Leena attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend and managed to catch up with sister Teena whom she'd mentioned in our Le Mans video interview. Teena's the lead engineer on Kris Meeke's MINI WRC car, and the two managed a ...
