A tour bus collided head-on with a truck at 9:40am (8.40am SGT) on National Highway No. 5, in Nanae Town in southern Hokkaido. The bus was bound for Sapporo, the island's largest city, when the accident took place.
There were 33 Singaporeans onboard the tour bus when the accident occurred, and half of them suffered minor injuries. A further 14 non-Singaporeans were hurt in the crash as well, although only one was severely hurt. Unfortunately, the drivers of both the tour bus and the truck were not as lucky, for they were killed in the crash.
Let’s face it, the A 45 AMG we drove last year was brilliant and still is. The CLA 45 AMG wasn’t too bad either and it gave a slightly larger boot. So one questions where this latest GLA 45 AMG sits in this trio of rip snorting Benzes and if it’s really necessary at all.
The donor vehicle, the GLA, is a crossover based on the A-Class platform. So essentially what the GLA 45 sums up to is an A-Class with a raised ride height. Or is it?
From the outside the impression the GLA 45 AMG leaves is lasting. With a design that echoes that of the A-Class, the car gets beefier front and rear bumpers to make it more SUV-like. But the wheel arches hide large 20-inch wheels that on this AMG version, looks every bit the business. Not o...
2014 has been quite cruel to Caterham so far. Despite numermous leadership changes, along with a change of ownership, the CT05 still seems slower as compared to their closest rivals. The combination of the sheer lack of pace and financial troubles have resulted in their closest rivals outdeveloping and outperforming the Leafield-based team. Things have gotten a lot worse for the team though, for its chassis division has reportedly filed for bankruptcy protection.
The Caterham team that fields the cars in F1, incorporated as 1 Malaysia Racing Team, is a different division altogether from the factory that manufactures the cars. Now, with the factory under bankruptcy protection, there is a probability that the team now has to race with whatever spares they have left, and if it gets any worse, they may not even have cars to race with next season. Currently, over 200 are at risk with the new development.

Mazda shattered 20 FIA speed records at the ATP test oval in Papenburg, Germany. Three of the convention-challenging carmaker’s Mazda6 flagships powered by 129kW/175ps SKYACTIV-D 2.2-litre clean diesels completed a 24-hour marathon run on the high-speed track on Sunday, with the front car achieving an average speed of 137.37mph and the other two close behind. The current record for diesel-powered production cars (2.0-2.5 litre displacement) is 130.38mph. Each of the three Mazdas also set several other average speed records over a variety of distances.
At the wheel of the cars, which covered more than 3293.3 miles during the 24-hour period, were 23 drivers from seven EU countries. They included professionals as well as journalists and car enthusiasts, who could apply to take part as part of a campaign started by Mazda last May.
