Porsche RS Spyder laps Bathurst
Previously a dominant force in endurance races in North America during the 2006 and 2007 seasons, the iconic yellow and red Porsche RS Spyder undertook a new challenge this October: Mount Panorama, Bathurst. This 2006 American Le Mans Series LMP2-winning Porsche, the first ever RS Spyder in competition, completed demonstration laps at the world famous Bathurst track driven by Dutch sports car ace - and 2008 Le Mans class-winner in an RS Spyder - Jeroen Bleekemolen. Best known for its success in the American Le Mans Series against its more powerful LMP1 rivals, the development of the 480 hp (353 kW) RS Spyder prototype was the first new project built by Porsche exclusively for racing since its successful 1998 24 Hours of Le Mans campaign with the Porsche 911 GT1.

Le Mans 2012 - Nissan Deltawing debuts at Le Mans
Nissan has released a video of the test at Le Mans. This will be the only chance for entrants to this year's Le Mans 24 Hours to set their cars up for the big race on June 16/17.
For Nissan, the test represented the Company's biggest commitment to the famous French endurance race to date. Nissan will power a quarter of the entire Le Mans 24 Hours field this year, with particular dominance in the LMP2 class, in which 13 out of 20 cars will use Nissan engines. The star of the show was the radical Nissan DeltaWing which aims to complete the legendary endurance race using half the fuel and half the number of tyres of its fellow Le Mans entrants. All of Nissan's key cars performed admirably, with a top 20 place for 2011 LMP2 champion team, Greaves Motorsport, and a trouble-free day of running for the experimental Nissan DeltaWing.

Top Gear Deadly 720 - World Record - Top Gear - BBC
It's another world record for the Top Gear Live Stunt Team. Just a few months after the same dare-devil team completed the 'Deadly 720' loop-the-loop in a four-wheeled buggy in South Africa -- we got to thinking: could we perform the same feat if we removed 50 per cent of wheels as well as the roof and the steering wheel? In other words, on a motorbike. The answer would appear to be a resounding 'yes'.
This is the final edit of, as Clarkson says: "a stunt man mad enough to want to turn himself upside down twice on a bike". Adding: "Pretty nerve wracking and spectacular".
"I can't believe we've actually cracked it here at the NEC in front of a live audience," said a relieved and delighted Top Gear Live Creative Director, Rowland French. "Having now done the Deadly 720 on four and two wheels I have no idea what we'll dream up next -- but you can trust us to come up with something even more astonishing."
Fans have until Sunday 28 October 2012 to experience the gravity defying Deadly 720+. There are still tickets on sale available from the official topgearlive.co.uk website http://www.topgearlive.co.uk or by calling 0871 230 5588.
