Like the person who shared this video on YouTube, we have no idea why these men are destroying what looks like a perfectly good car – a Skoda Superb, to be precise. For all we know it could be a skit from a television show.
Still, that didn’t hold us back from spending close to four minutes watching a backhoe-loader with the help of a skid-steer loader doing their thing on the Czech saloon.
Head past the jump to check out the video for yourself and if you happen to have more information, leave us a comment.
In proposed amendments to the National Road Traffic Act published in the Government Gazette on 8 June 2012: getting your drivers license, which already is a stressful and time consuming process, will take up to 12 months longer.
New technology developed by iDRIVE.co.za now simplifies the process, enabling you to pass your license before the laws change.
Recently launched after years of research and testing, the new system is designed to provide learner drivers with all the training, resources and qualified driving instructors required to become a legal driver.
According to World Wide Worx’s Internet Access in SA 2012 study for the 2012 Netprophet conference recently held in Cape Town, “6,02-million people have access to the internet on computer, laptop and tablet.” This is the audience iDRIVE.co.za has been designed for.
Ben Grobler, owner of My Driving School and one of the first members of iDRIVE.co.za agrees , “ln my experience clients have over the past few years become more e-inclined. This includes internet usage, Facebook, smartphone apps etc. We get a lot of clients from the internet and it escalates every year. iDRIVE.co.za has a good visibility on Google which is to my advantage. I receive contacts from iDRIVE.co.za on a daily basis.”
In a world packed with full-throttle, go-fast-or-go-home videos, Instructor Tommy Kendall and the AMG Driving Academy take a quick step back to remind us that it isn’t always the heaviest foot that wins the race. In this video, Tommy gives us a brief lesson in how to get in and out of a corner as quick as you can, using a mixture of threshold and trail braking.
The first stage of this lesson comes in a straight line where drivers hurtle themselves up to speed, before braking as late and as hard as possible with the goal of landing in a target braking zone. Brake too early, and you come up short, but brake too late and you can expect to go skidding off into the sunset. The video shows some pretty clean examples, but I’d be curious to see what their blooper reel looks like.
Once students master threshold braking in a straight line, its out onto the track where things start to get interesting. Although the simple “Brake – Turn In – Throttle Out” seems like a good plan, Tommy explains that trail braking is another essential part of clawing back those extra seconds. Keeping the car neutral sounds like a good logic but staying lightly on the brakes as you turn in loads a bit more weight on the nose, giving the front tires a hint more grip to pull in to the apex.

California has long been known for its efforts to reduce pollution from vehicles, and efforts to popularize hybrids and electric cars.
The California Air Resources Board has now taken that one step further by approving a $ 27 million fund for its Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP).
The Kia Cerato Koup epitomises the long strides the South Korean car maker’s car designs have taken in recent years.
The two-door was introduced in 2009 and one of the first to be penned by the man behind the original Audi TT – Kia’s chief designer, Peter Schreyer.
It boasts an attractive form that is becoming consistent in a Kia range that now belies decades of dull, frumpy or just plain ugly styling executions from the brand.
We also don’t mind the way Kia is trying to be hip with its gangster-rap-style approach to the spelling of coupe, though why include the name of the not-so-funky Cerato sedan/hatch on which it’s based?
With a starting price of $ 23,390, the Kia Cerato Koup carries a premium of a few thousand dollars over its four- and five-door siblings.
That’s for the entry-level Si model that includes Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, iPod/USB/MP3 connectivity, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearlever, 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, electronic stability control, six airbags and a full-size spare.

JLR’s decision to use their new supercharged V6 engine in products other than the F-Type sports car quickly sparked the rumors of an R-version of the Range Rover Evoque. And that was enough reason for auto artist to go and get busy with their Photoshops, and give us an early look of what a high-performance Evoque would look like.
Features anticipated to be on the Evoque R include a larger, wider mouth to provide the supercharger with more fresh air to compress, a sort of spoiler lip, taller side skirts, and presumably a rear diffuser along with a larger roof spoiler. Bigger wheels and sport, lowered suspension will also be included. We hope the designer is wrong about those red bits though. They’re ghastly and kinda ruin the whole thing.
Making the Evoque R makes complete sense for JLR. The fancy crossover proved to be a massive hit. A high performance version will be even more appealing.
