Porsche 911 RSR Fastest In FIA WEC Pre-Season Testing At Spa

It's time for Porsche's factory endurance racing efforts to begin anew in 2021, as the company again partners with Manthey Racing for a two-car assault on the FIA WEC. Ahead of the season kicking off this weekend at the 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps, the series ran a two-day four-session test to get an idea of BOP and speed for the newly-updated cars. Every car in the series was represented, and Porsche kicked a whole lot of butt in the GTE categories with its long-serving 911 RSR. The two facto...

Ace Machine: A scratch-built bobber with a KTM 620 motor

It takes a massive amount of imagination to look at a KTM enduro and envision a barebones bobber—and even more skill to make it happen. Luckily Edi Buffon has bucket loads of both. Based in Sydney, Edi used to be an after-hours builder—until he quit his day job. “I’m now working part time,” he tells us. “Three days for the man, with the remaining four days dedicated to my humble bike building business.” Working as Machine 1867, Edi’s creations are always ground-up builds that are incredibl...
