Seven Female Drivers Set For Formula E Test In Saudi Arabia

The 2018 Saudia Ad Diriyah E-Prix takes place on December 15th.  The additional test session was encouraged by the local promoter.  Saudi Arabia lifted a ban on women drivers last June. Formula E is interesting. It’s a good way to advance electric vehicle tech and it keeps us entertained with lots of racing action. Sure, it’s still working out some of the technical kinks, but racing series are always in that position. And now, Formula E has gone and done something very interesting by having se...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 10: Rained In

Woke to cloudy skies and foggy conditions, so not much of a sunrise to try and catch.After breakfast and some work, I walked up Snyder Hill which gives its name to the BLM site I'm camping on.  Up there you could really see how the fog made the nearby hills looked like they were wreathed in the clouds: From the top of the hill, I could see over to the western side of the BLM site, as I mentioned before, there were way more RVs located on this side for whatever reason. I prefer the east...

Track Edition of Refreshed Lexus RC F to Debut at Detroit Auto Show

While Lexus has cranked out a few impressive sporting models over its lifetime, “performance” is not a term that’s synonymous with the brand. Instead, Lexus seems to evoke words like “reliability,” “luxury,” and “high resale values” from the collective consumer mindscape. However, the brand does do dynamics.

Audi e-tron first drive: Quick, comfortable and familiar

Even after a few minutes behind the wheel, it’s easy to forget the Audi e-tron is electric. The SUV is not outrageous or radical, but rather pedestrian and effortless. Audi didn’t invent something new with the e-tron. The German car company stuck a competent electric powertrain in an SUV, and, in the process, created a fantastic vehicle that should resonate with shoppers. The Audi e-tron is the new benchmark in electric cars. Some EVs are larger, faster and have a longer range, while some ...
