Wings aren’t anything new on MotoGP bikes, but the H2 looks to be the first with side wings on a production bike, although they aren’t for downforce, they are for cooling. The bike’s supercharged inline four cylinder engine pumps out a whopping 300hp! Would you buy one?
Time for another sporadic dose of TaxTheRich madness. Watch him drift a Rolls Royce Wraith around the grounds of a stately home and through lots of fields. In true Tax The Rich style, the super-expensive car is driven through sandy tracks amongst hay exceeding sane speeds. The man behind Tax The Rich, allegedly Harry Hunt, is the son of multi-millionaire Jon Hunt who used to own Foxtons estate agents. Their car collection includes a Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari F50, Ferrari 288 GTO, Jaguar XJ220 and a Bugatti EB110 SS.
Three people have been killed after a monster truck ploughed into the crowd at a Dutch car show, with fears that the death toll could rise further. Eighteen people were also injured in the disaster in the eastern city of Haaksbergen, with six seriously hurt, and the driver of the monster truck has reportedly been arrested. Normally there are high walls around a monster truck event just in case a pedal gets stuck due to the truck jostling around the driver so that the truck will just flip over and not harm the crowd. The barriers at this event were not designed to stop a truck. This was truly a horrible and preventable incident.

It is not clear whether the driver intended to ignore the rules or not, but it couldn’t have been worse timing.
This is a short, but very intimate portrait of Alex Zanardi, the former Formula 1 driver and winner of the American Champ Car Series.

Alex Zanardi came back and did the impossible: He won races in the World Touring Car Championship, two gold medals at the Paralympics in London 2012 and just recently added two more hand bike world titles!
