Around the Tracks: Ice racing, Bathurst, and a racing Civic

When we’re not creating it ourselves, the CarAdvice team spends a lot of time finding and consuming motoring content from all over the world.

Enjoy them – just not too much, okay? Another example of the Bathurst 12 Hour is officially over, with Bentley coming up trumps at the mountain. Sounds cold, but fun

Mercedes-Benz is undertaking various cost-cutting measures and aiming to save €1.4 billion ($2.3 billion) over the next three years.
