At C&P GHQ, we’ve cast the net a little further this month. After some negotiation, we are proud to bring you ongoing Red Bull TV, live and exclusive on crankandpiston.com. Be sure to check out the new link on our homepage.
On the road, as well as spending some time with the Tesla Roadster and the Rolls-Royce Ghost, we’ve jetted to Portugal to try BMW’s ActiveHybrid 5 and (some of us) have braved Dubai’s busiest roads for the first time. We’ve also seen the fulfillment of a tuned-Mitsubishi Evo IX dream and celebrated the lunacy that is Brabus. We even had time to wish the Jaguar XJ220 a happy 20th birthday.
Our salute to the Dubai 24Hrs – courtesy of an epic video – finally went live this month after some tantalizing teasers. Our international race coverage has included the Rolex24 at Daytona and WRC Rally Sweden, and we’ve kept you up to date with the UAE GT Championship. At Pirelli’s launch of their new-for-2012 Formula One tyre compound, we put both the Renault Clio Sport RS and Aston Martin Vantage GT4 through their paces, and even enjoyed some track time with our management fleet.
The Google playground has been good to us, unearthing Lady Cans, Arabian art cars, and the Ferrari Opus. We’ve also had our eyes on some exclusive Race And Win watches. Our Vision and Gallery sections go from strength to strength, as do our Shots Of The Day.
Buckle up: February’s looking good at crankandpiston.
