By now you would have seen the photos of the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak Hill Climb car. Recently, the machine slated to compete in the famous Hill Climb event in Colorado has been caught on camera by YouTube user, frede64230l testing at Circuit Pau Arnos in France.

No race ever ends without some sort of incident happening, we’ve all established that fact. And this 3 part compilation strengthens that argument and also shows us all of the crazy, funny and weird things that have happened throughout the 2012 racing season.
The Simpson Motors / MML Sports Suzuki SX4 WRC. Fully rebuilt and ready for some unfinished business.
Kremer Racing was already a very well-known racing team at Le Mans, but as a racing team that often utilized Porsches during their races. The men at Kremer were responsible for the Kremer K8 (Porsche 962 spyder/Porsche 963), the Porsche 962CK6 and the Porsche 917/81.
However, it is not as widely known that Kremer was a pioneer of the Honda NSX in motorsport. Kremer, however would only race once, as the German racing team was paired with the Honda-supported effort to enter the NSX in different forms of motorsport only in 1994, in which it managed at unimpressive finish at that year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The NSX was primarily entered in the short-lived GT2 class, in which it performed rather impressively. In 1995, after a grueling battle at the Le Mans, the car finally managed its greatest result; a 7th place finish. It took the GT2 class win, and managed to best its rival from Nissan, the Skyline (R33) GTR-LM. It also managed to finish ahead several McLaren F1 GTRs, two Callaway-Corvette SuperNaturals, the Toyota Supra LMs, the Ferrari F40 LMs and a majority of the prototypes and premier GT1 efforts of most manufacturers that competed.
In 1996, the Honda NSX would make its final Le Mans appearance, as it would take a 16th place finish, one position behind the Nissan Skyline (R33) GTR-LM that it beat in the previous 24 Hours of Le Mans race. After that point, the only place one would find the NSX in motorsport was in the Japanese GT500 series, or the Japanese Touring Car Championship (JTCC), in which it was an incredibly dominant car.
