2017 F1 Preview: Renault Sport Racing

Renault Sport Racing, the product of a realignment of all Renault's racing and sports car marques, had a dismal 2016 Formula One season.  Although their 9th place finish in the Construtor's Cup had them scoring 9 points--they missed out on the #8 spot by a whopping 21 points. Needless to say,...

2017 F1 Preview: Scuderia Toro Rosso

FYI, "Scuderia Toro Rosso" means "Red Bull Stable", a moniker for an animal enclosure. Now you've had your Italian lesson for the day. In real life "Scuderia Toro Rosso" means, "second fiddle to Red Bull Racing", the lead of Red Bull's two Formula One teams.  Toro Rosso finished 7th in the...

2017 F1 Preview: Red Bull Racing

Watching Nico Rosberg completely dominate another 2016 Formula One race dialed in a little more perspective on what he is accomplishing this season.  For one driver and team to win 7 races in a row is quite an accomplishment.  Even that is an understatement.  Where the 2015 season was a...

Countdown to the 2016 FIA Formula One Chinese Grand Prix

Say Hello to the Honda HR-V, a 2016 Green SUV of the Year

Green Car Journal awarded the Honda HR-V it's "Green SUV of the Year" award.  The HR-V, a member of the bustling subcompact crossover/SUV segment, is (to me) the best looking Honda to hit the showroom since the S2000.  It's too small for my family currently, but when it was just...
