I’ve spent the past few days playing Forza Horizon 3, the sequel to my prior favorite racing game, Forza Horizon 2.

Thirty million dollars is, by most measures, a fortune. It’s far more than most of us will earn, cumulatively, in our lifetimes. In fact, that goes for you and a half-dozen of your closest friends, combined. It is likely more than our wildest dreams are capable of conjuring – a sum so large, it’s hard to understand its purchasing power.
BMW’s history in the world of motorsports is rich and diverse, with more than just a few titles to claim as their own.

If you’re a regular reader of the StanceWorks homepage, and have been for some time, it’s quite unlikely that you managed to miss Keith Ross’s 1966 Volvo Amazon Coupe – after all, it’s one of the most successful articles in StanceWorks history, and with good reason… It’s hard not to love a classic, and one as well-executed as Keith’s black-on-black Swedish saloon is worthy of notable praise.

Ken Block wrestles with his Ford Focus RS-RX through an abandoned industrial/train complex, bringing the video back to its roots with a refreshing taste of the original films. Give Ken Block’s Gymkhana 9: Raw Industrial Playground a go, and let us know what you think.
