Off Road Racing
What to watch. When to watch. Where to watch. Feast your eyeballs on another weekend in wild world of motorsports, featuring everything from King of The Hammers to FIA Formula E.
The Dakar Rally—widely regarded as the nastiest, gnarliest race on earth—is back and better than ever this year, and this epic new trailer proves it and then some. Running from January 3-16, this 5,600-mile marathon through the mountains and deserts of Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile is right around the corner, so give this one a watch before it blows by you in a cloud of dust.
If you've well been sleeping on UTVUnderground's XP1K side-by-side series, then you're one of the few, with the truly batshit off-road video series racking up over 16 million views across its first two installments (which you should definitely check out if you haven't already). Riding that incredible viral crest, the SxS auteurs dropped their third epic, XP1K3, yesterday and, much like its predecessors, the results have to be seen to be believed. Featuring RJ Anderson pushing a 200-hp Franken-Polaris RZR XP Turbo to its absolute gravitational limits amongst the burnt-out factories and rusted-through trainyards of Youngstown, Ohio, this one might well be the craziest driving video of 2015, so strap in, fire it up, and put that right foot to the floor.
The Ford Pinto has a reputation as one the most poorly built American automobiles of all time, but that didn't stop Southern Rock Racing Series driver, Shawn Cross, from basing his wild, big-block Mean Bean on a 1980 version of the Blue Oval embarrassment. Check out this footage from the SRRS Championships, in which Cross absolutely destroys his lab experiement on the way to a wild second place finish, and we think you'll agree: This is one wild Pinto.
Get ready for the return of one of the craziest racing events on earth
Erik Roner has been keeping busy as evidence from this action-packed new episode of RonerVision! Erik kicks things off skydiving with buddy Bob Burnquist over the 2012 Nike US Open of Surfing and gives us his take on parachute packing 101. Next Erik heads out to Glen Helen raceway joining Greg Godfrey and some of the Nitro Circus Crew for an epic night of truck racing. Summer wouldn't be complete without some good old fashioned R&R, so Erik finishes things off back home in Tahoe, living the good life with son Oskar. As always Oskar gets into big things—this month it's extreme tubing. Hang on!
