Learning to Drive a 911 on Ice Requires a Lot of Patience

Learning to Drive a 911 on Ice Requires a Lot of Patience Weight balance and grip are the only things you need to worry about. When it comes to driving on ice, patience is the name of the game, especially when it comes to Porsche 911s. With a lack of weight in the front and the engine in the back, getting it around turns requires serious precision. Tiff Needell found that out when he attended Tuthill Porsche's ice driving school a few years back for an episode of Fifth Gear. Needell decided it would be a good idea to see if he could learn how to drive a 911 on ice, and even try to beat Ryan Champion, a professional rally driver, on a real stage road.

Saying that KTM is dominating the rally scene at the moment is a bit of an understatement. The factory crew racked up its 18th consecutive Dakar win in January 2019 with pack leader Toby Price finishing first in the motorcycle division with a broken hand. After some controversy and a cancelled penalty, teammate Sam Sunderland followed closely with a third position.

[Weekend]Here's a Good Demonstration of Why Everyone in the Snow Belt Loves the WRX There's a reason why so many people call it the perfect all-rounder. If you've ever been on the internet, you've probably seen someone talking about how great the Subaru WRX is. With a low cost of entry, plenty of aftermarket support, vast parts availability, and a rally-bred all-wheel drive system, they certainly have a point. But if you need further convincing, this video should do nicely. The Team O'Neil Rally School took out its mid-2000s WRX to shoot the season finale of its Will It Rally? web series.

The Red Bull KTM crew was back in action for the Silk Way Rally, a 3,100-mile race through Russia, Mongolia, and China over the course of ten days. This time around, KTM had three riders entered in the motorcycle category: Sam Sunderland, Eulalia “Laia” Sanz Pla-Gilibert, and Luciano Benavides. Sunderland lead the KTM charge and by the time the competitors reached China, he had a comfortable advantage over his opponents.

He won three of the nine stages and ultimately finished first overall in the motorcycle division, taking the win for the 2019 event. Benavides who took the eight place at the 2019 Dakar finished fifth overall and first in the Junior division. As for Laia Sanz, the Dakar Women’s Category champion, she secured the seventh overall position. This was Sanz’ first race in the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship.

Sunderland, who also finished first in the first event of the 2019 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship in Abu Dhabi, is also currently in first place of the World Championship with Benavides hot on his trail with a current third place. There are two more events on the calendar, the next one coming in September in the Atacama Desert.

What’s better: a run up the hill or a ride around the rally stage? It's pouring rain at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and I'm sitting at the start line in a car with no windshield wipers. I'm in this frankly absurd situation because I made the mistake of wondering what the best way to experience the Goodwood Festival of Speed is: in a race car going up the hill or in a rally car on the event's thrilling Forest Rally Stage?
