Take to the Road recently got invited to the 6R4.net track day at Curborough Sprint Course. One of the cars taking part was this awesome 1983 Audi Quattro Group 4 Rally Car. The owner Nick kindly gave us a passenger ride... it was epic!!!!
The car was an absolute animal!!!! Thanks to owner Nick and the team at 6R4.net for a fantastic track day!
Heartbreak and tragedy had summed up the run of luck that Toyota had experienced at Le Mans over the last few years, but the grey clouds of Le Mans past finally lifted when Sebastian Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Fernando Alonso finally secured the win for the Japanese manufacturer at the 2018 edition of the world’s greatest motor race.
The world’s biggest and most spectacular motor race is a little over a month away. The event this year will be held over the weekend of 15-17th June 2018 on the legendary Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans in Western France. It is an event that, for nearly a century, has attracted the best drivers and manufacturers competing to prove themselves in the gruelling enduro.
The four-day event, organised by the Endurance Rally Association, covered 726 miles and negotiated 13 Tests and 15 Regularities between Brooklands in Surrey and Edinburgh, Scotland. It started at 1pm on Thursday 26th April and ended around 3:15pm on Sunday 29th April on the world-famous Royal Mile, with crews greeted by Frank Ross, Edinburgh's Right Honourable Lord Lieutenant and Lord Provost.
In a world where most of the ambitions of scientists and engineers appear to centralise around designing bigger and better batteries and finding more computer power, you might be forgiven for thinking that the era of land speed records was long gone. However, for the crew of Bloodhound SSC, the dream of breaking the 1,000 mph barrier is still very much alive.
