It's time to start getting really excited, and not because of cars, but because of ones and zeros!
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology little boys (and other people) can immerse themselves into astonishingly realistic racing simulations, hopefully satisfying the need to go fast.
GT5, and Forza 3 look so realistic that you need to keep reminding yourself that this is not real. Although not quite photo-realistic, the graphics look amazing. You can check out preview videos of GT5 and Forza 3 after the jump. And then start saving for a PS3 or an Xbox 360!
Recently the "Global Economic Melt Down", "financial crisis", or whatever you want to call it, has been taking its toll on the motor industry. While some automakers are attempting to seek government support to stay alive, all automakers are scrambling to find ways to cut costs and save money.
Unfortunately for fans of motor sport, this means less money is being directed towards motor racing. Honda's decision to withdraw from F1 set the scene. Up until then, much of the focus was on GM, Ford, and Chrysler. Honda's reason was simple: money.
The Rally of Thailand was dominated by Finn, Jussi Valimaki.
Suphot Kasikham came home in eighth to be the highest placed Thai. Suphot was lucky to finish after his Impreza's rear brakes failed and then its gearbox got stuck in fourth gear on the penultimate stage.
The Autobacs Aisa Cross Country Rally took place in Thailand between the 6th and 12th of August. There is a nice report (with pictures) of the event by Liz Price featured on The Star (Malaysian webiste, English language).
Second and Third place finishes went to Thailand (Toyota Hilux, and Isuzu D-Max). The winner of the event was Korean, driving a SsangYong Musso.
