50 years of the Porsche 911

A special sports car celebrates a special anniversary I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but 2013 is the year of the Porsche 911. At PRN Ignition, we began the celebration early.

Petter Solberg’s garage

I met Petter Solberg in Sardinia, Italy during the 2004 Rally Italia Sardina.

A gymkhana redux: session 1 to today

Fiesta Rallying with Team O’Neil

I’m at the O’Neil Rally School and Car Control Center in moose and bear country to experience the Ford Fiesta in a way many never people will get to experience it, sliding sideways through muck and muddy puddles while being in complete control.
