Welcome to TRT 2.0

WELCOME to the all-new The Race Torque.

As we enter our fifth full year of operations, we’ve given the site a major birthday with a brand-new look and feel and some upgraded tech behind the scenes to keep things operating nicely.

It’s been a big job – hence a week or two of radio silence from us – but ultimately, we hope you find it worthwhile. Thanks for sticking with us while the site was in a pit stop.

Fortunately, we’ve had the full service and fed back into the race in clean air and with new rubber so things should be quick from here.

The new layout is designed to be easier to read and navigate, especially on the mobile devices from where we know a good chunk of our readership comes from.

The new front page also better highlights the diversity of the content we produce.

The first row of content will show the latest upload from our core elements – update / news stories, our deep-dive features, photos / multimedia and our weekly On the Grid Podcast.

As you scroll down there is a more comprehensive rundown of all the most recent stories we’ve posted.

We are going to build our YouTube content this year so there’s a standalone section for videos now; watch this space, because we think we’ve got some good things coming up when it comes to this part of our content plans this year.


TRT will be bigger and better than ever in 2021, with more stories from within the sport, more photos, videos and a whole lot more.

And obviously, there’ll be more old Formula 1 cars too. Can’t go wrong with old F1 cars.


2021 will see us continue to deliver the same kind of content that we offered up – and you embraced in record numbers – last year.

Our Power Rankings will return and will expand to cover the Shannons Motorsport Australia / Australian Racing Group events.

TRT’s industry analysis of TV and broadcast content will continue and will take added interest this year thanks to the wholesale changes to the TV landscape following the return of the Seven network to the landscape en masse.

OTG will return later this month as we provide a weekly news and views podcast while there’ll be more deep-dive features covering off the motor racing stories otherwise never told.

There’s also plans for more informed commentary and analysis of the key stories of the year as they happen, and the chance for you to get involved and offer your own balanced thoughts in the comments via our social channels as you’ve done so well in the past.

Truly, one of the best things about our community is that a vast majority of you who interact with the site follow our mantra of staying away from the arguments, name calling and general terribleness that social media discussions more often than not end up being.

TRT was formed to offer the antithesis to the comment sections on the internet and we’re proud of that.

As this is the first major upgrade the site has ever received we know there’ll be some teething issues, so please bear with us as we continue to get things running on all twelve cylinders (you didn’t think we’d only have eight, did you?).

Hit us up on the socials or send us a note via the contact page if you stumble on an issue, have some story ideas or would simply like to say G’Day.

Thanks as always for your ongoing support of TRT, and here’s to a much-improved 2021.
