Yamaha & Ducati Among the Products Stuck on the Ever Given

News of the MV Ever Given rocked media last month since it was lodged in the Suez Canal. The disruption created global chaos as ships transporting goods were heavily delayed – let alone the items aboard the Ever Given. The ship containing 18,000 containers has since been freed but the mayhem has not ended.  As if the global pandemic didn’t cause enough delays, those delays were amplified by the happenings in the Suez Canal. Amongst the 18,000 containers on the Ever Given were products and com...

DeMan Motorsports Builds A GT3-Beater Out Of A Porsche Cayman

Porsche has a bit of a Cayman complex. You know what that is, right? The Cayman, being a mid-engine car, is a great platform for big power and track performance.
