  • UK Like-For-Like Sales Jump 1.3% In August - BRC Like-for-like sales in the United Kingdom climbed 1.3 percent on year in August, the British Retail Consortium said on Tuesday - accelerating from the 0.9 percent increase in July.

  • In its day, Kremer's slightly modified version of Porsche's 935 was the king of Group 5 motorsport. With a huge forced induction and wild silhouette aerodynamic profile, the 935 was a stunning car in its day, and remains one of the greatest Porsche racers of all time today. In this onboard video of Charlie Nearburg's glorious ex-Dick Barbour Racing car from last weekend, you can see the thing really pushed to its limits. Starting from pole, Charlie manages to keep the full field behind him for the full race, and lapping most of the slower runners. The race was put on pause for a BMW M1 spun at the apex of the famed Corkscrew, but Charlie managed to hold the wolves off at the restart as well. Outside of Bruce Canepa, Nearburg is perhaps the biggest combination of race car collector and excellent racer at the Monterey historics. He started an oil and gas exploration firm as a younger man and has parlayed the success of his business into a massively successful motorsport c..
