When it was recently announced that Fernando Alonso would race in the 24 Hours of Daytona in January, it was described as a warm-up for an eventual attempt to win Le Mans. "Eventual" may come pretty fast: It now looks like the Formula One champion will race in the Le Mans 24 Hours next season as well.
With PSA platforms and engines, Opel is now is a position to benefit from PSA's global production. PSA has factories in China and South America, a joint plant with Mitsubishi in Russia, and kit assembly production in Iran.

When the weather is bad and the roads are slippery, there is more chance of you losing control of your car. This manifests itself as a slide, which can turn into oversteer or understeer, depending on what kind of car you are driving, what steering you are doing and the throttle and braking that you are using.
High-ranking exec departures suggest that major questions about Faraday's viability as a car company have not been answered -- and they're unlikely to be answered in the near future as a raft of new and affordable electric cars near commercial launch. Faraday's pitch for a high-priced and high-tech electric car has not become more attractive or more realistic in the months following the prototype's debut, and major automakers are currently racing to field cars toward the middle and bottom of the price ladder in their respective segments, aiming to make them viable cost competitors to gas- and diesel-engined vehicles.
Applying more lock won't help because the front tyres have lost grip and you won't gain any more by doing so. Instead, the first thing you must do is slow down, then take some steering lock off to help the tyres regain grip. If you've slowed enough, then adding lock again to get around the corner should see you back on course - if it doesn't help, then you need to slow even further. However, if the road is slippery, then just backing off the throttle might be the only thing you can do, because stepping hard on the brakes will only make matters worse.
When winter looms large, it’s vital that your car is in proper working order so that it's capable of dealing with the bad weather and, more importantly, it won't break down. According to research by recovery firms, you're twice as likely to break down in winter months. While that sounds like a good statistic to get people to sign up with these services, there's some things that you can do to ensure it doesn't happen in the first place.
To ensure this doesn’t happen to you, open the windscreen washer bottle under the bonnet, and fill it with screen wash. You can buy ready mixed or concentrated screen wash, which you’ll need to mix with water.
At its first race, Bob and his co-pilot managed 294 laps, securing 5th pace overall and 3rd in their class, which wasn’t bad considering it was the driver’s first outing at Circuit de la Sarthe ever. The car was retired from racing a little over a year and 17 races after Le Mans, before being sold on to the next lucky owner.
Racing with Toyota at Le Mans and other endurance races should give him better luck than he had this season with McLaren-Honda in F1 and at Indy. Though Toyota has never won Le Mans, it is known to be developing a new WEC car.

This powertrain is available for as little as $24,460, and Honda asks $34,690 for the top-spec 1.5T Touring, still a solid value for such a fully realized and useful machine. But yeah, save up a few bucks and get the 2.0T if you can. And we’d get the manual transmission, too.
