Watch out Fast and the Furious, Need For Speed is coming soon…

26th September 2013 | BY Adam

Over the top stunts, 18-speed gear boxes, scantily clad girls and more nitrous than a Spring Break party in Cancun - it can only be one film series. The Fast and the Furious franchise has had a place in the hearts of boy racers and men old enough to know better since the first film hit the screens way back in 2001.

But after twelve years at the top of the podium there’s a new challenger looking to steal the F&F thunder and it comes with a racing heritage of it’s own.

#SidewaysFridays: BMW 325 drifts to the top of a multi-storey car park

20th September 2013 | BY Adam

I remember watching The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift back in 2006 and wishing the scene in the multi-storey parking garage was shot with less CGI and more real talented driving.
Seven years later, my wish has come true as part of the short drift film “The Ugly Duckling”.

3 year old girl drives a 320bhp Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6

22nd July 2013 | BY Adam

In certain states of America it is legal for 16 year old kids to drive a car and here in the UK they have to be 17 before they’re allowed to get behind the wheel. There’s a lot of discussion over raising the legal age for being able to drive, but if this three-year-old girl is anything to go by, why bother with an age limit at all!

Guy proposes to his girlfriend during autocross race like a boss

11th July 2013 | BY Adam

On their first date Jake took Maggie to watch him autocross racing, but secretly signed her up to race. She loved it and the rest is history. Since then they’ve built and worked on their BMW M3 together and both compete at autocross events, with Maggie only usually a couple of seconds off Jakes time - wife  material indeed. Maggie sealed the deal by installing a clutch on the BMW and in what we imagine was a slow-mo moment, with a shaft of sunlight coming from the clouds, dry ice filling the floor and an angel choir singing, Jake knew she was the one.

Hit the jump to see Jake’s proposal, mid race.

NEWS: Sebastien Loeb breaks Pikes Peak record - Onboard Video

2nd July 2013 | BY Adam

Over the last few months there has been a lot of excitement and anticipation about nine-time World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb’s run at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. When we saw the videos of his 875bhp Peugeot 208 T16 road testing back in May we knew that we were in for a treat once Loeb put tyre to tarmac on the mountain.

What we hadn’t bargained for was that Loeb would smash the 9:46 Pikes Peak World Record by over ninety seconds(!), posting an 8:13.878, making him the only member of the ‘Eight-Minute Club’ and securing his spot in racing history forever.

Hit the jump for the epic footage of the run and a look back at the classic Pikes Peak film, Climb Dance…

#SidewaysFridays: Ryan Tuerck testing his new 2JZ powered FR-S

12th April 2013 | BY NSNP

At NSNP we’re huge fans of many disciplines of automotive tom foolery. Being a diesel specific website, we do refrain from posting a lot of what floats our boat, in the name of remaining niche. That said, drifting is something that we can justify talking about under the “No Smoke, No Poke” banner and we’re sure even our most die hard Derv Pervs won’t chastise us for indulging in our other guilty pleasures and sharing them here with you…right?

So we’ve decided that each Friday we’ll honour the smoky, sideways antics of the drift scene with a regular spot on the blog. That day shall be known forthwith as #SidewaysFridays.

To kick us off, we can think of no-one better than Ryan Tuerk (of Tuerk’d fame) drifting his way around Pats Acres racing complex in Portland, Oregon.
