Porsche And Penske Team Up For IMSA And WEC Effort

Rescheduled 24 Hours of Le Mans Shedding Competitors

Motorsport hasn’t been particularly engaging of late. Formula One seems to have lost the ability for a scrappy upstart to snatch victory away from a more-established team in even a single race and constant rule changing hasn’t helped anything. NASCAR, which intentionally tries to run much closer races, has similarly sabotaged itself by trying to […] The post Rescheduled 24 Hours of Le Mans Shedding Competitors appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Women in Sports: How Female Racers Are Changing Car Racing Forever

For the majority of history, motor sports have been thought of as a man’s sport. Little room was ever given for women to try and take part in it. Comparisons are often made of the greatest men in racing, but why is there such little conversation about female racers? To understand why there is so little history and what the future may hold for women in racing, we have to take a look at the past and see how it has led to the brave women of racing today. The Past Back in the early days of motor r...

What We Learned About ‘Ford v Ferrari’ While Attending the 24 Hours at Daytona Race

Full disclosure: I know nothing about motor sports. I didn’t even know motor sports were called motor sports (it was just car racing in my head) before attending the 24 Hours of Daytona race this weekend. Granted, I knew a little bit about the event going in, but that’s only because I saw Ford v Ferrari , the 2019 Oscar-nominated Best Picture film that, among other things, has Christian Bale (playing historical driver Ken Miles) driving the race in 1966 while Matt Damon (playing car desig...
