Its just a matter of days until the Silverstone Classic, the worlds biggest classic motor racing festival.
The event will host a mammoth 22-race programme including the battles from the FIA Masters Historic Formula One Race Series, FIA Masters Historic Sportscars and Super Touring Car Trophy. The races will feature in excess of 1,000 cars from more than eight decades of motor sport.
Together with the track action, the event will feature over 10,000 classic vehicles on show from a wide range of car clubs and groups.
We’ll be at the event this coming Saturday so keep your eyes peeled for all manner of live action on our social pages. If you bump into us please do say hello!
We were one of the few privileged publications to be invited to the premier of BattleDrift2 at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017. This was the first public showing of the second installment of BattleDrift and couldn’t have been set at a more prestigious and historic event.
BattleDrift 2 features Daigo Saito in his 2002 Lamborghini Murcielago (as seen in BattleDrift #1) but this time he’s joined by UK drift legend and BDC champion Steve “Baggsy” Biagioni. Baggsy’s vehicle of choice for BattleDrift 2 was his custom built 2009 Nissan GTR, pushing out in excess of 1100BHP from its forced induction 7.4 litre LSX Chevy powerplant. Set in Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey (Kent) the two drivers are challenged by your stereotypical “hardman” to make a “bloody good video”. They did not disappoint.
Its hard to imagine how Monster Energy could follow up the first in the BattleDrift series, rest assured they smashed it!
The premier itself was hosted by Nic Hamilton, British Touring Car driver and Brother of a rather famous F1 driver. Although Nic wasn’t used to being on the other side of an interview he performed flawlessly and gave both Baggsy and star of BattleDrift 1, Vaughn Gittin Jr.l, a good grilling. We managed to spend a little time with Steve who was interviewed by our youngest Assistant Editor (9) and expert Forza 6 Drifter. He revealed that the damage to the rear bumper as shown in the video looked much worse on film and did not interrupt their grueling shoot schedule.
Monster Energy have yet again raised the bar in this latest production. This action packed video has set the bar for anyone who dares to follow.
That’s enough waffle, lets see what all the fuss is about.
Thanks to the generosity of Monster Energy, Turbo-Nutters will be attending this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The main attraction for us will be the World Premier of BattleDrift 2 which we have kindly been invited to. We’re not entirely sure what to expect but not doubt Monster Energy will be putting on a spectacular show.
Check back later in the week for full coverage of the event! We’ll be live streaming on our YouTube channel so please be sure to check that out.
In the mean time check out the last installment from Monster – Battle Drift #1. This first installment set in Niigata, Japan pits Vaughn Gittin Jr. in his 550 HP 5.0L V-8 Mustang RTR against Daigo Saito’s 650 HP V-12 Drift Lamborghini. The resulting video below is nothing short of amazing!
The world’s biggest classic racing festival is set to celebrate the Ford Sierra RS500’s 30th birthday with two very special double-header races this year.
The races will showcase the iconic RS500 against an array of high-tech Super Tourers and Group 1/A racing saloons in what promises to be be spectacular showdown. The event will feature a vast array of cars spanning some 25 years with the RS500 taking center stage. The races will include some iconic cars very close to my heart such as the Ford Capri and BMW M3 together with Super Touring cars from later years.
“It’s going to be very special and, with so much wonderful tin-top history on track, an amazing experience that no touring car enthusiast would dream of missing,” enthused Nick Wigley, CEO of event organiser, Goose Live Events. “The exciting Super Tourers have always been a big hit with the fans ever since the very first David Leslie Memorial Trophy race at the Classic back in 2009. Now we are doubling the eye-catching entertainment with what’s effectively a second stunning race running at the very same time – even more so, as this ‘second race’ will put the spotlight on the incredible achievements of the rightly idolised RS500.”

** Update 13/2/2016** We’re delighted to confirm the recent update of Pixel Car Racer resolved the painful IOS crashing issues we were having. We’re also pleased to confirm that the recent updates gave a nod to the upcoming game modes. It’s safe to say that a little bit of wee came out! (I’ve updated our review accordingly)
I like to think I’ve kinda got my finger on the pulse when it comes to gaming, especially when it involves four wheels and an engine.
Therefore it came as a surprise when my 9 year old started bugging me try this new “pixel” car game. Originally I had dismissed this as yet another Pixel Gun, Roblox or minecrafty type spin off trying to capitalise on the type of 8-bit graphics I grew up with.
Man, I was wrong.
So whats it about?
Before I discuss the reasons for my love affair with this little game, I need to point something out. This game is still in development, its not Beta but there’s some holes. Some of the modes such as “Story Mode” and “Rivalry” are currently not available. This equates to about half the game modes but believe us when we say that really doesn’t matter at all. What is available is frikken’ amazing.
If you’re reading this article then you’ll probably be a newcomer to the world of Assetto Corsa modding. As easy as it is to just pickup the game and crack on with a lap or two of Spa, adding mods might not be as straight forward as you’d hope. That’s why we’ve put together some frequently asked questions to help you along the way to becoming an Assetto Corsa modding god!
Where do I download Mods?
Unfortunately the internet is full of crooks looking to hijack your PC and steal your data. Please do stick to reputable website for downloading mods and always check the files for viruses and malware. If you don’t have any antivirus protection use the basic version of avast! and check your PC regularly with MalwareBytes.
We suggest that you stick to the Race Department website for all your mod downloads. They have all the mods sorted by type Career,Sounds,Apps,Cars,Tracks,Misc andSkins. Be sure to read the comments and mod notes before downloading.
Like you we were fed up with laggy Nordschleife track day servers with limited slots and poor performance. Our only option was to rise above these sh*tty servers and create our own UK low ping server for you lucky lot.
Joining is easy! Just Search Turbonutters in the online server listing and jump on. Our Nordschleife server requires the Porsche packs, its well worth it!
There’s some things that the Aussies do best: Make insanely powered pickup trucks (utes to those down under), fishing and insects that kill you.
Here’s another to add to he list… burnouts!
The Aussies obsession with the burnout is unrivalled. Their insanely powered competition cars produce both enough power, smoke and flames to put anything you’ve seen in your local “cruise” to shame. These guys literally burn rubber until either they annihilate the tyres or catch fire.
Check out the video below from 1320 Video highlighting some of the lunacy at this years Summernats.
The SRT Hellcat might just look like another “Murican” muscle car but under the bonnet of this his beast lurks a 707 horse power Supercharged HEMI. This 4 door sedan saloon is not only fast, it’s proved to be very liable and practical too. If you’re in the market for a muscle car – the Charger might me the car for you however if you’re after something with some off-road pedigree then maybe opt for the Dodge Ram.
Here’s the specs of this amazing car:
Engine: Super Charged 707-HP 6.2L HEMI – 650-lb-ft Torque
Performance :0 – 60MPH: 4.2 Seconds – Top Speed: 204MPH
