Like it or not social media isn’t going away.
Did you know that many people who use Facebook don’t do anything else on their computer (i.e.) they never leave the walled garden that is FB. Once inside you can do pretty much whatever you want other than create content, although...
A week ago Peugeot announced, with little specific detail, they had a new challenger for the annual Pike Peak Hill Climb in Colorado, scheduled for June 30. The car is very loosely based on a 208 road car in much the same way Group B rally cars of the mid 80′s were, albeit a greater level of safety.
What possessed the company to return to such a fickle event? Surely people recall Ari Vatanen punting the 405 T16 (effectively a banned Group B car with massive aero) up the half dirt/tar road in one of the earliest in-car videos, called Climb Dance, way back in 1988? Is their any need? Here it is, just for the record.
Since then few...

CALMING TROUBLED WATERS
MARK FOGARTY OUTLINES HOW V8 SUPERCARS’ BELEAGUERED BOSSES HAVE MOVED TO ASSURE TEAMS THAT THEY SEE A BRIGHT FUTURE
AWAY FROM the track, V8 Supercars is going through a tough time. While interest in the racing has increased because of the new makes and Car Of The Future’s initial upending of the established order at the front of the field, the sport’s finances are under extreme pressure.
The concerns and criticisms expressed about V8 management’s handling of the economic setbacks have dominated conversations among insiders and...
There has been a lot of bitching and moaning in the last couple of days. It’s revolved around Holden’s decision to axe another 400 jobs, and as usual, it’s been fed furiously by the mainstream media – creating conflict where there was really only a difference of opinion and interpretation.
Let’s make it perfectly clear, as far as V8 Supercars (supposedly the best touring-car/tintop competition in the world at present) are concerned, there would be no history, no Bathurst 50th anniversary last year and quite simply, no V8 Supercar or Australian Touring Car Championship, past or present, without Ford &...

KIMI DOES WHAT KIMI WANTS
AMID THE POST-RACE RANCOUR AT SEPANG, MARK FOGARTY NOTICED THAT ‘THE ICEMAN’ REMAINED CHARACTERISTICALLY COOL
HERE WE go again. If the first two F1 races are any guide, we’re in for another volatile season that will produce many different winners until the front-running teams get on top of the latest generation of high-deg tyres.
After Sunday’s Malaysian GP, it’s also looking like intra-team rivalries will also figure in the narrative that unfolds, with friction between Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber rising to the surface, as...

Our World Headquarters are located in a rather nice part of Adelaide, where regular production takes place. Unless we're somewhere else, which is often the case.

Beyond Episode 200
There comes a time, in this case after six years, with over 240 episodes recorded in 10 different countries, 300+ guests and 220 continuous hours of recording, that we feel its time to go commercial. With over 55,000 viewers, since March 2011, we get some serious exposure. So we thought a magazine to fill in the gaps would be nice.
A Word of Warning
Our firm policy that we don't edit a show once its recorded is because it detracts from its natural conversational character in the first place. Commercial partners and alliances will have to adhere to policy and whilst we'll do the best to accommodate you and make you feel loved you have no control of how we do things. Just so we're clear on that :)
