A 1.1-mile Private Racetrack In His Front Yard -- JALOPNIK ON /DRIVE

Alan Wilzig, a New York banking scion, built the largest racetrack zoned for private recreational use in the U.S. at his farm in Columbia County, NY. Take a tour of the circuit at Wilzig Racing Manor, featuring nine turns that thread through more than 80 feet of elevation changes, including a 20-percent banked curve. Also on site is a clubhouse and museum for Wilzig's car and bike collection and race shop for his IMSA racecar and racing karts.

Formula Ford EcoBoost. Street Legal Racer on Road and Nürburgring - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
You see, big car companies can have a sense of humour! Take a Formula Ford racer, add a tuned 1 litre 3cyl motor with over 200hp and you have a car which ace racer Nick Tandy got around the Ring in 7min 22sec. That's special, but even more special when it's on the public highway.





Radical RXC: The World's Most Extreme Street Legal Coupe - XCAR
To see our latest film before it's on YouTube: http://www.carfection.com Subscribe for more XCAR videos: http://bit.ly/U9XDKc Radical can hardly be considered sane at the best of times, but with the RXC they've taken their name quite literally and gone a few thousand steps further than ever before. Known for putting Superbike engines in light chassis to create a killer track car combination (The SR3 being their flagship model), with the RXC this is the first car they've designed from the ground up to be both for the road and track. They've dubbed it the 'world's most extreme road-legal coupe'. It's hard to argue with that. Powered by a 3.7 litre V6 Ford engine found in the new Mustang, it produces 380 bhp with 320lb ft of torque. Unlike the new Mustang, however, it weighs only 900kg, meaning it has 422bhp per ton. It's also capable of producing up to 900kg of downforce, the same as the cars weight. Again - road legal. Did we mention that already? As unbelievable as all this may be, Radical's LMP1 inspired car has finished its track development and just begun testing on the road, and XCAR were lucky enough to be the first ever to see the RXC take its first journey. We witnessed it in action on country lanes, A roads and saw the reaction it got filling up at a service station. We even managed to eat a service station sandwich inside it, most probably another world first. Needless to say, we were awestruck by the presence of the thing. The noise, the speed, the looks. It's certainly striking, and with the promise of it being a progressive handling driver's car in the same vein as the SR3, we can't wait until its finished and we can test it on the road and track. All signs point to it being equally at home on both. Words/Presented by: Nick Wilkinson Shot by: Ben Scott/Nick Wilkinson Edit by: Nick Wilkinson Join the XCAR community...

Mystery Of The Buried Ferrari Dino Solved -- JALOPNIK ON /DRIVE
Back in 1978, a 1974 Dino 246 GTS was found buried in a yard in Los Angeles. With the help of the Dino's current owner and one of the investigators on the case, who fed us some previously-unreported details, we wrapped it all up into a mini-documentary for this week's Jalopnik on Drive. It's the real, real story about the buried Dino. http://jalopnik.com/5872514/the-true-story-of-how-a-ferrari-ended-up-buried -in-someones-yard
