As much as it is a haven for TV show bingers, movie series completionists and general procrastinators (hello, me), Canadian Netflix is actually quite the outlet for the car geeks among us, too.

Microsoft gave gamers an extended look at the implementation of rain in Forza Motorsport 6 with an all-new trailer at Gamescom ahead of its September 15 launch.

Summer. Sunshine. Ice cream. Shorts and sandals. Wonderful. When will the suffering end? If the words “road trip” fill you with dread and terror, maybe it’s time to reacquaint yourself with the kind of driving that involves plush seating, open spaces and bathroom breaks that don’t take half an hour – all in the comfort…

Mario Andretti is a racing legend – one of the greatest race car drivers, ever. Over his multi-decade career, Andretti won 111 major events including the Formula 1 World Championship, the Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 500.

Throw in a few meteors, a hilarious compilation of dashcam crashes or 12, and it wasn’t long before dashcams became…
