Monday, September 18, 2017

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – German carmaker Audi is taking a lead in bringing more automated driving to roads, but rivals seem in no rush to follow while legal and regulatory uncertainties still cloud the technology.

Monday, September 18, 2017

Audi Sport’s RS3 and TT-RS: The same engine but very different cars – Ars Technica

Monday, September 18, 2017

reader comments 35 We usually pay for our own travel expenses, but in this case Audi provided flights to New York City and two nights’ accommodation.

Marc Leishman breaks tournament record, eyes FedEx Cup title – ESPN

Monday, September 18, 2017

Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The clutch shots down the stretch in the BMW Championship belonged to everyone except the winner. Marc Leishman didn’t really need them. Staked to a five-shot lead and determined to not let another FedEx Cup playoff event get away from him, Leishman never gave anyone much of a chance Sunday at Conway Farms. When Justin Rose made a…

Wesley Bryan played his final round at the BMW Championship in under 90 minutes – CBSSports.com

Monday, September 18, 2017

Wesley Bryan had the first tee time on Sunday at the BMW Championship, and he decided to set a (unofficial) record with the fastest round on the PGA Tour that anyone can remember. Bryan played his round in 89 (!) minutes. The best part? He shot a 2-under 69 in the process. As Nathan Hubbard pointed out on Twitter, Bryan essentially ran a 13.5-minute mile while shooting 69, which is…

Marc Leishman takes 5-stroke lead into Sunday at BMW Championship – CBSSports.com

Sunday, September 17, 2017

On moving day at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day stood still. Oh, both of them played fine — they both shot 1-under 70 — but “fine” was not going to get it done on this day where 20 under or better is usually good for the trophy. As a result, Marc Leishman extended his three-stroke lead before the round started to five going into…

The Audi RS7 Performance is a vicious $152000 supercar wrapped in a luxury sedan – Business Insider

Sunday, September 17, 2017

I never liked the Audi A7 much. Since the German automaker first introduced it as the Sportback concept at the Detroit Auto Show in 2009, and later produced the hulking, four-door, four-passenger car in 2010, I saw the A7 as the red-headed stepchild of the Audi brand. You’ll have to excuse the clichéd expression, but I was not a fan. The A7 was long like an asphalt-bound freightliner, the steeply-raked…
