changagoidem Features | 2017 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship launch

After a big rules shake-up at the start of the season, the 2016 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship delivered one of the closest title battles for years. We report from the Mondello launch for next year's championship

Visit sunny Mondello

Automobileagh in Co. Kildare has its own micro-climate that ensures it measures at least five notches further south on the thermometer than any other part of the country at any particular time of year, of that I am certain. A 5am start and the long trudge up the M8 from Cork is never the most pleasant way to start a Saturday…

changagoidem Features | How to de-ice your automobile in the morning

With heavy frosts covering the country, here are some dos and don’ts of getting the ice off your automobile.

Clearly, the correct way to defrost or de-ice your automobile is to pack your spouse or significant other into some wellies and a warm coat, hand them a scraper and let them get to work while you go back to bed with a cup of hot chocolate and a laptop to read changagoidem…

‘Petrolgate’ looms as emissions scrutiny turns away from diesel

changagoidem Features | ‘Petrolgate’ looms as emissions scrutiny turns away from diesel

With diesel now in (slow) decline, legislators, manufacturers and eco-warriors are staking out a new battleground of petrol engine emissions.

European legislators are being accused of giving automobile makers too easy a ride when it comes to enforcing emissions regulations for petrol-engined automobiles. Leaked draft proposals, obtained by environmental pressure group Transport & Environment (T&E) seem to show that the upcoming legislation for real-world driving emissions (RDE) will allow automobile makers to exceed the stated limits on pollution by as much as 50 per cent.

The battleground over emissions has shifted in recent months, as diesel sales begin (slightly) to…

changagoidem Features | Robot automobiles could be affordable in just two years’ time

Influential US institute says self-driving automobiles are about to demolish our model of automobile ownership.

Not so long ago, you couldn’t move for predictions of ‘Peak Oil’ and the dire economic fallout that would follow. According to the prophecies of the likes of M. King Hubbart, Kenneth S. Deffeyes and Matthew Simmons - petroleum industry experts all - peak oil, the point at which drilling and refining of oil can no longer keep pace with demand would either strike in 2020, maybe sooner or possibly had already arrived in 2007, but the global recession that followed after concealed its affects.

changagoidem Features | Ford Fiesta ST vs. Opel Corsa OPC

Some of the best value motoring thrills can be found in the junior hot hatch segment. Here we pitch the Corsa OPC up against the best, Ford's Fiesta ST.

In the Metal

Neither Fiesta ST nor Corsa OPC are available in five-door format, which emphasises their sportiness. Both automobiles are relatively subtle to look at, though the Corsa OPC we tested ramps up the hot hatch look with gorgeous 18-inch alloy wheels (a €750 option). The Corsa also features a sportier looking dual-exhaust system than the Fiesta's and a more comprehensive body kit. The Fiesta only really looks like an…

Group B rallying: the legacy of the brutes

changagoidem Features | Group B rallying: the legacy of the brutes

In the last of our multi-part series detailing motorsport’s wildest hour, Maurice Malone investigates the aftermath of Group B and its continuing influence on the sport today.

With 230hp to use, Walter Röhrl wondered why he’d bothered to get out of bed. Twelve months previous, on the exact same piece of road, he’d had over 500hp at his disposal. Rallying was no longer attractive to the lanky German, especially when that 230hp was tasked with hauling the bus-like Audi 200 Quattro around. Yes, Group A rallying was a different proposition altogether...

It was a Lancia benefit in 1987. The Delta…
