Development Diary Update!

Development Diary Update!
Hello again, everyone. I know it’s been a while, but rest assured, the only reason I haven’t been updating you guys regularly on the game progress is because I’ve been, um… progressing the game! ...

Porsche Photoshop fail

Porsche Photoshop fail
The Porsche 919 was testing at Monza, so Porsche’s PR people did what PR people do in these situations where they really have nothing to say but feel the need to say something anyway – they sent out a bunch of photos of the testing. Except it seems they left something out of the photo you see here. Go on, take a good look and see if you can spot it… Hint: the floating mechanic with no legs! IT’S THE FLOATING MECHANIC WITH NO LEGS! We take this opportunity to offer a timely ...

ECTO-1

We heard this morning that Harold Ramis has died. This makes us here at OVERSTEER very sad as, apart from the fact that the world has lost a comedy genius, it also probably puts an end to any possibility of Ghostbusters 3, as Bill Murray still refuses to have anything to do with it… sigh… This means we will probably never see our favourite movie car up on the big screen again – ECTO-1, the thoroughly awesome 1959 Cadillac-based Miller Meteor ambulance/hearse converted to ...

Cows…

Cows, it seems, don’t appreciate the fine art of the burnout. This appears to be in India, but I can tell you that coming from the mighty King Country, this thing is far more common in New Zealand than you might imagine…

It seemed like a good idea…

The RACER Channel recently asked the leading IndyCar drivers who they thought they would need to beat to win the 2014 championship. It all went well until they got to Juan Pablo Montoya who, with the help of Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan, turned it into a comedy… The perfect remedy for a Wednesday. Enjoy!

Fish on Wheels!

Give a man a fish, the saying goes, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Teach that fish to drive, however, and you have a whole new kettle of fish on your hands. Driving fish. Studio Diip is a technology company that specialises in making stuff that uses image recognition technology. Stuff that is all very clever, but rather boring to read about how it works. So to overcome this boring aspect the clever minds at Studio Diip have come up with a ...

Quattro

Got a spare 20 minutes this weekend? No? Well, find an excuse to not do something for 20 minutes and watch this ...

My dog ate it…

My dog ate it…
The classic “My dog ate my homework” excuse is a tried and tested way out of things, but generally not an Aston Martin. But it was for Somerset builder Royston Grimstead. Apart from having an awesome name, Royston also has an Aston Martin, which is his pride and joy. He also has two dogs that don’t really get with each other, so he had advertised to re-home one of them – a Border Collie/Spaniel cross named Luce. Luce clearly caught wind of Royston’s plans, ...

Yep. I meant to do that…

Yep. I meant to do that…
Ah, Russia. Where vodka is a perfectly acceptable alternative to water and parking just requires some wildly out of control oversteer and a bit of pure dumb luck. There is simply no way you could not get out of this car and say to an on-looker “I totally meant to do that…”
