Formula One at Road America
Here is an onboard video from the 2012 KIC at Road America. The car is a 1997 Jordan with with a Judd engine instead of the Peugeot that it used in the actual Grand Prix. This was our first weekend with with the car and were astounded with the performance. There were a few bugs as expected but we got everything worked out. In front of me is my dad running a Benetton F1 from the same year, with the same engine. Keep in mind this is not a professional event, nor am I a professional driver. The only goal was to have fun and keep the car in once piece. Enjoy!
Cheap Truck Challenge! - Roadkill Episode 3
On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan join Fred Williams and Rick Péwé of Peterson's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine to compete in the infamous Cheap Truck Challenge. Riding into battle with a modded 1979 Bronco, they face-off against a rock-ready 1980 Toyota Pickup and a beastly 1987 Chevy Suburban in a cash-strapped quest for ultimate off-road glory.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

Can-Am Spyder on Blood Mountain Hwy 129 / Triumph Daytona 675R goes over the edge!
First ride on a Can-Am Spyder! I thought the steering was a little stiff, found out later that the power steering was out, the whole time I was on it! Thus the lower corner speed! :(
Towards the end of the video, one of the guys in our riding group had low sided off the road at one of the decreasing radius turns, on his Triumph 675! (5/1/2011) He is ok now! :)
0-160 MPH in a 750hp GT-R
I was in Houston for a day trip for work and a friend picked me up from the hotel for a nice joy-ride in his 700-750awhp GT-R. Good way to prepare for TX2K next week!
Filmed this with my point and shoot, forgive the wind noise
