Recoil 2

Someone had better call Ken Block and tell him he might as well give the Fiesta back to his mum and give up making ...

The dog we all want!

Go on, admit it – you want a dog just like this one! And a Ford Fiesta ST. And the ability to drive like Vaughn Gittin Jr.

Two fast horses

Pete Sparrow is clearly a gifted, but rather demented man. His company – Sparrow Automotive – ...

Gran Turismo: The Movie!

It’s a Sunday evening with nothing on television. So what else is new?

Basically, Hollywood lied to us… This wonderfully retro video shows us exactly how a police officer should stop and arrest a car load of wrong-doers without getting his head blown off back in the decade of soggy suspension.
