With the final edition of the Gallardo, Lamborghini brings total racetrack emotion to the road. CAR Magazine’s Ben Pulman puts one to the test. The Squadra Corse delivers high performance and brings the fascination of motor racing to the street-legal world. This new and most extreme model in the Gallardo lineup is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo, the successful racecar from the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, the world’s fastest one-make series.

SHORT TRACK RACING: CALAMITOUS COMMITMENT CONE!

Stephen Cox, below, blogs about 'The Cone' and racing at Wisconsin’s La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway. Having never been to La Crosse before, it was no surprise that I qualified near the back of the field last weekend after only six laps of practice (throttle stuck... don't ask!). But my pit guys are amazing. They still gave me a fantastic car for the race. Wisconsin is an awesome place, rabid fans, and lots of tracks, good cheese and great football. But several of the area's short tracks ha...

ROAD RACING AT INDY: GRAND PRIX?

‘It’s a Band-Aid for a broken arm,’ blogs Stephen Cox about road racing at IMS. I love the idea of adding a road race for Indycars at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. What worries me are the reasons for doing it. In this afternoon's press conference at IMS introducing the new Grand Prix of Indianapolis, Hulman & Co. CEO Mark Miles asked, “What if we could jump start May? Ignite May in a way that brings more people here?” “That was the premise. We did a lot of work on it, and we conclude...
