Vettel managed to won at Suzuka, Alonso retired and the Championship 5 races before the end is on fire. Just 4 points is now the difference among the two. Back on the podium after almost 2 years Massa (2nd), while third was the Kobayashi in his maiden appearance on the podium.

From where to start and where to finish someone? The Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka in 2012 was not the most exciting race in the history of the track, however, changed radically the data in the 2012 championship and proves that the "heart" of a champion (red bull) beats very loudly here in Suzuka. In the Japanese track Sebastian Vettel took the the 24th victory in 7-year career, he achieved grand chelem (pole position, leading throughout the race, win and fastest lap) also managed and secured the second world championship. AND No, that's not all! Vettel in the Japanese Grand Prix of 2012 managed to almost annihilate the dispute with the league champion Fernando Alonso taking advantage of the abandonment of the Spanish in the first turn and set again fire in the 2012 championship which in fact is the most exciting in years.

The next Grand Prix is ​​scheduled for next weekend, 12-14 October in Yeongam circuit in Korea.

May 23, 1982, the first race after the death of Gilles Villeneuve at the Belgian Grand Prix, so Ferrari came with one driver, Didier Pironi.

With about 67 laps completed, the race turns into sprint race between Alain Prost and Riccardo Patrese. The rain just started, and while Patrese pushed hard Prost who was running frantically in the race track trying to finish the race before the rain becomes harder.

Entering the 74th round, Prost pushed too hard, lost control and came out at the Chicane du Port(also known as dog leg).

In the final round, Didier Pironi while in the tunnel retires due to luck of fuel, while Andrea de Cesaris also ran out of fuel before being able to take the leadership role. At the same time Derek Daly, the next leader, was running with a car without the front or wing-back (something like that) and later on with a damaged gearbox before the car reach the final round.

Patrese, who had managed to restart his car after the spin off, took the checkered flag.

Pironi and de Cesaris finished either second and third, with Daly in sixth place.

Flying at Spa-Francorchamps in the rain is one of the most challenging climates for pilots and racing fans. The Brazilian Lucas di Grassi, current test driver for Pirelli, lived experience in a test tire supplier in F1 Belgian circuit, which was recorded by a camera placed in the driver's helmet, at eye level, giving accurate perspective what the pilot sees from inside the cockpit.

Chevrolet made ??the decision to withdraw from the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) at the end of the racing season of 2012. The decision is part of the strategic review of Chevrolet's racing department as the American company wants to concentrate on other activities of the brand.

Rumors speak that the main reason was the reduced sales in Europe and the success of the Cruze sedan in the WTCC tracks not translated into sales. The Chevrolet WTCC participated in from 2005 to 2009 with a Lacetti sedan, while from 2009 onwards with the Cruze, taking a total of 59 wins and 2 championships drivers and manufacturers.

Unfortunately the Deltawing of Nissan failed to end the 24-hour race of Le Mans, since the driver of a Toyota, pool over Deltawing in a protective wall. However, "the touching" point of the story is that the driver Satoshi Motoyama, was trying for 2 hours to start up the engine in order to return to pit for repair, but the effort was not fruitful.

If you wonder why the mechanics did not enter and approach the car... I will say that Le Mans regulations are strict. For example the driver may be removed from the car not more than 10 meters. Finally after 2 hours of effort the driver won the applause of the crowd that had gathered around the Deltawing.

A lap around Le Mans from 1956, this is Jaguar D-Type driver Mike Hawthorn giving a running commentary as he drives round.

If the Seventies was the decade for Porsche, the Sixties was the period for an epic war between Ferrari and Ford – the former dominating the early years of the decade and the latter the second half.

Back to hordes of Porsche 917s in 1970...

Period of 1977, the Porsche 936s were exceeding 350kph down the Hunaudières straight!

The previous decade saw the explosion of the Group C formula. In 1984 the fast but fragile Lancia LC2s and French WM-Peugeot took the fight to the Porsche 956s.

Who can forget Mark Blundell’s pole lap from the 1990 edition, where he drove a Nissan R90CK mounted with a nuclear bomb of an engine: a twin-turbocharged V8 that made over 1,100bhp in qualifying trim and absolutely flew round the track.

Some on-board footage from last year’s Peugeot 908.

Silverstone’s UK round of the Blancpain Endurance Series provided quite a different challenge for the GT3 cars compared to the last outing at Monza in Italy, weather aside. There, straight-line speed won: strip the wings to sprint down the straights, then deal with the downforce deficit in the few corners there were to worry about.

Race Results:

1: PRO Marc VDS BMW Z4 (Palttala/Leinders/Martin) 73 laps
2: PRO WRT Audi R8 LMS (Piccini/Vanthoor/Sandström) +54.792s

Alain Menu won the second race of the day at Portimão, passing the pole sitting SEAT of Pepe Oriola at the start and going on to take his third win of the season, whilst his Chevrolet team-mates had to fight hard for what was eventually fourth and fifth place.

Menu went on to win the race, whilst competing as the fictional French racing hero Michel Vaillant, whilst Pepe Oriola secured his first podium finish in the WTCC with Tom Coronel in third.

Yvan Muller extends his lead in the Championship to 18 points over Rob Huff over the weekend, whilst Alain Menu is 35 points behind as the WTCC takes a seven week break before resuming in South America in Brazil on July 22nd.

It is unknown to many, including car lovers. The circuit of Terramar is the second oldest in Europe after Brooklands, ahead even to the legendary Le Mans, and the first in Spain. In this unique environment that still keeps the greatness it once had, two of the best riders of the moment, Carlos Sainz and Miguel Molina, tested their skills as drivers.

Accidents should be taken for granted in motorsport, since the speeds are very high and drivers drive to the limit, which means that human error exists.

In the Super GT, the recent race at Fuji in Japan, was a scary incident when Tim Bergmeister lost control of his Porsche, and hit wall located at the exit of pit lane. We can not understand how this accident happened, as there is no footage from another camera.

I do not think there is man who loves Formula 1 and is not happy with this year's championship. In the fifth race of the year, after 66 incredible rounds, the winner was the Pastor Maldonado, the fifth different winner from the beginning of the year. The driver from Venezuela after yesterday's pole position, made ??the best gift to Sir Frank Williams, who yesterday celebrated his birthday (70th) after seeing the first checkered flag in Barcelona, giving victory to Williams after 8 years, from season Juan Pablo Montoya in 2004,

In second place came Fernando Alonso, who fought with Maldonado almost to the last rounds, while the third was Kimi Raikkonen. The Top 10 overall supplemented by Romain Grosjean, Kamui Kobayashi, Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Nico Hulkenberg.

The next Grand Prix is scheduled for 2 weeks after the May 25-27 weekend in the magical principality of Monaco.

Memories of the crash of Marco Simonceli all came to our mind during the recent Superstock 600 race in England, when Josh Wainwright lost control of his superbike, and Johnny Bradshaw did not have time to avoid him, as a result Wainwright pressed him in the head with his bike . Fortunately the helmet did its job well with Wainwright leaving the track with "only" a cracked rib and a broken collarbone, while Bradshaw was injured.

A pile which involved 4 cars, 2 laps before the checkered flag fall, played crucial role in the struggle for the Martinsville Speedway NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Big winner from the pile, on which starred Clint Bowyer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski, was Ryan Newman from Stewart-Haas Chevrolet, who managed last minute to escape from the scene of the accident without any loss and celebrate his first victory after a long time.

In second place finished AJ Allmendinger's of Penske Dodge while the top three podium completed with Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Hendrick Chevrolet), who managed to continue despite the conflict he had.

The well known to us from his tenure in Formula 1, Juan Pablo Montoya (Earnhardt-Ganassi Chevrolet) finished in 21st place, 3 laps behind the winner.

If someone before the race in Malaysia, bet that Fernando Alonso is going to be the winner of the race, most probably we would call him crazy. The Spaniard, however, taking advantage of the conditions of the match succeeded and brought the "failed" F2012 on top, taking the first checkered flag this season. Ferrari had to see victory at Silverstone last year with Alonso taking the third victory in Sepang, just as many have, and Michael Schumacher.

And if the surprise was on top, what to say about the second position Sergio Perez! The Mexican was worth getting the win with Sauber, but due to a small mistake in the last few laps lost in the details. Third, the poleman, the Lewis Hamilton who came once again on the podium after the third place in Melbourne. The top ten was completed by Mark Webber, Kimi Raikkonen, Bruno Senna, Paul di Resta, Jean-Eric Vergne, Nico Hulkenberg and Michael Schumacher.

The next Grand Prix is scheduled in three weeks from now, the weekend 13-15 April at the Shanghai circuit in China.

The first checkered flag of the season fell, with Jenson Button becoming the first winner of the season. The race was exciting and became a "war" of McLaren and Red Bull. Sebastian Vettel found between the two McLaren, as Lewis Hamilton passed the finish line third, ahead of Mark Webber, who urged him in the last rounds, but failed to overtake. Fernando Alonso did what it was possible, so he finished in fifth place, ahead of Kamui Kobayashi, Sergio Perez, Daniel Ricciardo and Paul di Resta.

With all this, Jenson Button saw the checkered flag, winning the third victory in Australia and 13th in his career, reaching David Coulthard and Alberto Ascari, the man who won the first two-consecutive-titles, 1952 and 1953. The Champion of 2009 did the fastest lap of the race with a 1:29.187, in the 56th round. The next Grand Prix is scheduled for 23-25 ??March in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,

Ford Performance Racing won its first Clipsal 500 in grand style with a 1-2 finish for Will Davison and Mark Winterbottom.

The pair proved they had the best fuel economy of the field and claimed a comfortable double to erase memories of yesterday’s heartbreaking second place for Davison.

Winterbottom qualified on the second row and Davison on the third, but by the first corner the two factory Fords were third and fourth.

Davison jumped his team-mate during the first pit stop sequence and the duo then set about moving further forward. They both passed Saturday winner Jamie Whincup on lap 37 before making a similar move 10 laps later on Garth Tander to grab the top two places.

From there they controlled the pace and eased to a convincing win – the first 1-2 result for car #5 and #6 since Darwin 2008.

Newcomer David Reynolds made up for his error yesterday to drive a controlled race to seventh place at the chequered flag. He spent much of the race in 10th place before making a late charge thanks to superior fuel efficiency over his rivals.

RESULTS:

1) Will Davison – Ford Performance Racing
2) Mark Winterbottom – Ford Performance Racing
3) Garth Tander – HRT
4) Jamie Whincup – Triple Eight
5) Craig Lowndes – Triple Eight

DRIVER CHAMPIONSHIP:

1) Will Davison – Ford Performance Racing: 288 points
2) Jamie Whincup – Triple Eight: 270
3) Garth Tander – HRT: 258
4) Mark Winterbottom – Ford Performance Racing: 222
5) Craig Lowndes – Triple Eight: 206

TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP:

1) Ford Performance Racing: 510 points
2) Triple Eight: 501
3) Stone Brothers Racing: 375

Juan Pablo Montoya during the last caution lost control of his car from an unknown reason (most probably the rear axle blocked) and fell on one of the security vehicles that where on the track. Montoya fell on the equipment of the vehicle who is a helicopter engine to clean the track, as a result his car dissolved completely and the air fuel from service truck used in the circuit took fire (ignite). Fortunately, the former Formula 1 pilot did not suffer anything.

In 2011 it was the Team Joest Audi of Darryl O'Young, Marc Basseng and Christopher Mies who claimed victory, this year it was Darryl O'Young, Christopher Mies, and Christer Jons who dominated the day's action.

The No.2 Audi of Craig Lowndes, Warren Luff and Mark Eddy was out of the race at 1.30pm when Eddy crashed at the top of the mountain, and with early pace setters John Bowe, Alan Simonsen and Dominik Farnbacher suffering electrical problems in their No.17 Ferrari it was left to the No. 20 Mercedes of Tim Slade, Jeroen Bleekemolen and Peter Hackett and the No.33 Clearwater Ferrari of Mok Weng Sun, Craig Baird and Matt Griffin to fight for the honours.

Neither were able to match the Audi pace though, and with no safety car in the final hour, the Mercedes crew was unable to bridge the two-minute gap to the leaders giving Audi a memorable win.

This Sunday race fans across both the USA and the world will be tuning in for the 2012 edition of the "Great American Race" - the Daytona 500. As we gear up for Daytona, I thought it would be fun to post up a few historic Daytona 500 moments.

This is the very first Daytona 500, which was held in 1959 and resulted in a three-way battle that became one of NASCAR's most historic finishes of all time.

One of the most incredible finishes in Daytona history came in 1976 as legends Richard Petty and David Pearson battled it out on the final lap of the race.

Danica Patrick was understandably the focus of both the media's and crowd's attention during her preparations for her double debut this Sunday. Not only will this be her first appearance in the Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR's premier racing series, it will also be her maiden outing in NASCAR's most famous race: the Daytona 500 at the Daytona International Speedway.On Thursday she was involved in a huge accident during the last lap of the first Gatorade Duel qualifying race.

Her Chevrolet was sent spinning into the inner retaining wall at full speed, after she was hit by Aric Almirola, himself a victim of another driver who lost control of his car.

The first tests of the new year completed in the circuit of Jerez, with Fernando Alonso to ... "painting' the top red. However, friends of Ferrari will not be happy because the news regarding the F2012 are not at all encouraging. Today, the Italian car had reliability problems, except that, the very people of Maranello are not satisfied with their "creature". Indeed, there are already rumors about which car is faster and how much.

Everyone in Maranello is determined to return to the top. After 3 failed attempts, in 2009, 2010 and 2011, Italians do not want to leave anything to chance. After the plans that submitted to FIA, the system configuration of the front part of the car, such as Lotus, Ferrari technicians prepare and F-Duct system for the front wing, similar to the Mercedes AMG.

To start with, the car of Ferrari for 2012 will be named "F12". Besides, on the front wing, last year we saw several trials of a more flexible model, which, however, was not perfected. Now, we learn that the technical department design stalling for the front spoiler, in an effort to reduce the resistance at high speeds.

The reactive suspension system pioneered by Lotus has been banned for the 2012 season, according to reports.

Lotus hoped to steal a march on its rivals with the concept, that regulates ride height under braking, but sources emerged on Friday that the FIA sent a note to all teams that the device was no longer considered legal.

Ferrari was one team that was looking into the legalities of the device that was thought to have found a loophole in the regulations as it is reactive to brake torque and not driver activated.

But Williams chief operations engineer Mark Gillan was quoted on Friday night that he had received a note from the FIA saying that the system had been outlawed.

"The FIA has just banned that particular type of system," Gillan told The Flying Lap. "We have been investigating that type of system for a while. It obviously has an impact on the aero platform of the car, [and] anything that gets the front ride height lower is beneficial from an aerodynamic perspective."

Gillan was speaking straight after the FIA issued the directive, and confirmed that he had not had time to examine it fully.

Lotus will launch its 2012 challenger at 1700 CET on Sunday February 5 ahead of the Jerez test, the same day the team's new website will go live.

F1 Reactive ride-height system

The 2012 season started very "strong", as Lotus is the first to use a hydraulic cylinder which is connected with the suspension, so as not to lose much value the car in the braking zone. Lotus has the approval of the FIA, because it is considered that the driver does not intervenes with the aerodynamic performance of the car, although it is one that activates the system, since he press the brake pedal.

The year ends and all the leagues of racing completed. Unfortunately this year there were some accidents during the races, where many drivers were killed, among them the Marco Simoncelli, the Guido Falaschi, Dan Wheldon and Rick Huseman.

There are many cases where one car follows another without being able to overtake. The same happened in a race in Atlanta when a Chevrolet Corvette followed by another for several laps, without being able to pass, thanks to very good defensive lines of riders. However, after nearly 18 minutes, the back will overtake Corvette, but not how you imagine!

At last weekend's Sydney Telstra 500 - the final round of the V8 Supercars championship - the 22 year old New Zealander once again demonstrated his daredevil antics. This time around it occured while trying to snatch third place on the last corner of the final lap.

We know that Formula 1 drivers do not have a wide field of vision. Their position in the car does not allow them to have full understanding of the area, mastering even more their level, especially considering the speed entering the turns, the space required to calculate when overtaking and generally all they need to know in order to touch their limits.

In the Grand Prix of Brazil, a micro camera was placed on the helmet of Sebastian Vettel, through which we can understand in part how he sees while driving. However, the visual field is even smaller, because the eyes are a few inches lower, as the camera is located above the right eye of Vettel. Watch the following video...

The race in Macau of China that took place last weekend, "produce" perhaps the biggest accident that we saw this year in race car. In the third round an Audi R8 began losing oil, from behind literally left debris. Watch how many race cars, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Audi, Porsche and Ford end up in the barriers. Fortunately no one was injured.

I would not want to be in the position of Jim Norman, the driver as he ran with the Porsche 911 in the oval track at Daytona, had a flat rear tire, while going with 290 km / hour. After several pirouettes, finally stopped and thankfully no one injured.

Unfortunately there was no purpose to watch the "battle" in Britain since Mikko Hirvonen had an accident in the seventh special, as he hit the front of the Ford Fiesta on a bush. While the damage initially appeared small, ultimately Ford engineers could not repair the engine. The engine raised temperature and worked only with 3 cylinders due to the accident (opened a clamp on the radiator). So Hirvonen didn`t start in the second day of the race, and Sebastien Loeb won the eighth world title.

Even when you're standing on the salt watching a 300+ MPH streamliner pass you by from half a mile away, it's hard to realize just how fast the darn car is traveling. Luckily, there has been big advances with onboard video cameras and the land speed team, Poteet and Main, plastered ReplayXD cameras all over their streamliner, the Speed Demon, as they made a 462MPH pass at Bonneville. It's already amazing to see a full run in a streamliner from the cockpit, but its even more amazing to see the full run in so many different camera angles.

Each year the American Hot Rod magazine organizes the event Drag Week, a week full of battle. 177 cars participated in this year's event with 135 of them to reach the end without any close contact with the walls. Winner of this year, the 4-time champion of the event, Larry Larsen with a Chevrolet Nova with 2,300 horses, the same who won last year.

Let me remind you that the contest require participants to run at 5 different tracks in 5 different states in 5 days and the lowest time of course wins. The "trap" is that participants must drive the car which will compete up there, to make the match, to lead the next level / state etc. So first of all should the car be street-legal, and secondly to be reliable.

Jenson Button was the winner of the Japanese GP at Suzuka but Sebastian Vettel seems that he enjoyed most the race, because in order to be crowned for the second time world champion, he wanted only one point, but took 15 from the third position. Among them, Fernando Alonso with his Ferrari. Followed by Mark Webber, Lewis Hamilton in Top 10 Overall supplemented by Felipe Massa, Sergio Perez, Vitaly Petrov and Nico Rosberg.

The race was not hiding some emotions with Vettel and Button to battle for the first 2 positions but we saw a good battle between Hamilton Massa and Webber for fourth place. In the 20th round, Vettel went for the second time in the pit, Button to entered the 21st. The engineers at McLaren was faster and so Button found at the top. A little later, Hamilton and Massa managed to solve their disputes from Singapore. The two cars touched, the front wing of Massa broke filling the road with broken parts, as a result safety car made its appearance.

As for the drivers' championship, Sebastian Vettel won the championship with 324 points, followed by o Jenson Button with 210 points and third in the Fernando Alonso 202 points. In the constructors' championship RedBull has the lead with the 518 points, followed by McLaren on 388 and in third position with a Ferrari 292.

The cars of Formula 1, other than speed, are famous for the sound that they produce. When drivers have the right foot on the floor, decibel hit red! However, this does not happen only in case of acceleration but also when drivers downshift.

In the video below, you will hear several cars during braking. Is the Grand Prix in Monza, Italy, where the cars enter the braking zone of the first chicane, even with 350 Km / h! Enjoy the video...

The Young Driver Aston Martin team completed a stunning double in a dramatic ninth round of the championship in Beijing. The combination of Darren Turner and Stefan Mucke took the chequered flag in the Championship Race to record their first victory of the 2011 season. The result crowned a perfect two days for the German squad after Tomas Enge and Alex Muller had taken the honors in the Qualifying Race earlier in the day.

The final round of the 2011 FIA GT1 World Championship will take place in San Luis in Argentina on the 4-6 November, where the destination of the 2011 World Title will be decided.

The Kanaan's car took off and eventually stopped on the protective tires. The Castroneves just stopped the car, ran straight to see what happened to Kanaan, who eventually did not suffer the slightest.

Toyota has just set a new EV record on the Nurburgring in Germany. The famed German racetrack has been the hotspot for EV racers as of late, with Peugeot previously setting the mark with a lap time of 9.01:33 in their EX1.The TMG EV P001 set an incredible time of 7.47:79 in their pure electric racecar. The car was piloted by Jochen Krumbach as he tore through the 12.93-mile long Nordschleife. The TMG EV P001 used street legal tires and packs 590lb-ft of torque with a top speed of 161mph.

Toyota's goal of under 8 minutes was thoroughly beaten. The Japanese automaker plans on selling the EV's guts next year and holding the prestigious Nurburgring record should help get units off the shelves quickly.The full in-cabin video of the record sub-8 minute lap can be seen below.

Let us say a few words about the new program. The opening of the 63rd season of Formula 1 will run for 36 weeks and will begin on March 18 with the Grand Prix in Australia. The "end" is scheduled for November 25 in the Grand Prix of Brazil.

The Grand Prix will be held in Austin in November, as Ecclestone has said, and more specifically in the 18th of the month. It will be the pre-last race of the year. The race in Bahrain, which was canceled because of internal unrest, will be held on April 22.

What you notice is the great summer break. While last year the break was 4 weeks, in 2012 will have to wait 5 weeks until we get back racing action! Before the big break, the drivers will visit the track of Hungary, while returning to the track at Spa, as happened this year.

The official program of 2012:

1. March 18 - Australia, Melbourne
2. March 25 - Malaysia, Sepang
3. April 15 - China, Shanghai
4. April 22 - Bahru, Sakhir
5. May 13 - Spain, Barcelona
6. May 27 - Monaco, Monte Carlo
7. June 10 - Canada, Montreal
8. June 24 - Europe, Valencia
9. July 8 - Britain, Silverstone
10. July 22 - Germany, Hockenheim
11. July 29 - Hungary, Budapest
12. 2 Sptemvriou - Belgium, Spa
13. September 9 - Italy, Monza
14. September 23 - Singapore, Marina Bay
15. October 7 - Japan, Suzuka
16. October 14 - Korea, Yeongam
17. October 28 - India, Greater Noida
18. November 4 - Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina

Slovakiaring has proved to be a Mercedes SLS track, with the big car taming the jumps and sweeps of this impressive circuit. There was a win for the #44 Heico team car yesterday and then another for Graff Racing's SLS today – they snatched victory with a rapid-fire pitstop in Race 2, overtaking the similar Gravity/Charouz-run SLS that had been leading the first half of the race. For Philippe Giauque and Mike Parisy in #3 the combination of their race win plus bad luck for the leading driver pairings has seen them leap from ninth to second position overall in the championship table.

There are just two races left in this year's FIA GT3 European Championship, which will be held at the famous Zandvoort track in Holland. It's another track which is known as a real driver's circuit, and with all seven manufacturer's cars pretty evenly matched there's going to be a titanic struggle to the last lap of the last race. Team NFS still lead the team's championship (by 19 points from the Faster Racing BMWs) and hold sixth and seventh on the driver's table. The only bad thing? We have to wait until mid-October to see the final showdown!

2011 FIA European GT3 Championship after Round 5

1: #50 AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia (Francesco Castellacci/Federico Leo) 97 points
2: #3 Graff Racing Mercedes SLS AMG (Philippe Giauque/Mike Parisy) 83
3: #9 LMP Motorsport Aston Martin DBRS9 (Maxime Martin/Gael Lesoudier) 81

You must be at least paranoid and without any sense of risk when you decide to go out on a wet track at the Nurburgring with a Formula and lead by exceeding the limits. Perhaps, you're the Andreas Gulden, the Chief Instructor of the Nurburgring Driving Academy. The 32-year old driver took the racing Formula with manual sequential gearbox and went to the Ring.

At every turn he was forced to make many adjustments to reverse the wheel to be able to keep the car within the track. The slightest mistake could cost him an exit on the barriers that are abnormally close to the road when you consider the speeds that each car develops. Even the racing Ferrari 599XX of 700 + horses, it seems easy, in comparison with the lightweight and-seemingly-wayward Formula.

A 16-year-old Dutch, the Beitske Visser in her debut in the Challenge Supercar Holland, she took the victory by middle-aged men, although she had received 2 penalties, a drive through and a 25 sec. The 16year old girl is champion in kart-racing and she started to run at the age of 5. At the Dutch Challenge Supercar drives a R4S Praga 500 hp in category GT, beating Roger Grouwels with Corvette GT1 C5.R.

In 2010 Visser finished second in the European Championship CIK-FIA KZ2 category in karting 125 cc, and won the WSK Master Serie. A new Michelle Mouton is born!

Formula 1 is one of the most spectacular sports in the world. One of those sports who make a lot of people always say "how they do it", are the pit stops. Engineers are asked to change 4 tires, but because in all motor sports, speed is what is most important, they must do as fast as they can. They are the only in the world that can perform it so quickly, "burdened" with the stress and tension of the moment.

The changes are so significant as they may give you or get you one or more positions in the race. I am not in the position to know if the timer was wrong, but Canada's engineers changed tires on the Ferrari Felipe Massa in just 2.3 seconds! The same, however, have been deprived places in other races, but let's not start this debate. All engineers, to be both fast and accurate, do the same thing thousands of times every year.

In the following video of people of Mercedes GP explain how the "pit stop" works and highlight the importance of it on a race.

The historic 24 Hours of Spa is one of the world’s longest running endurance events, tracing its roots back to the first race held in the Ardennes in 1924. This year the Total 24 Hours of Spa is the jewel in the crown event for the world’s newest international GT series, the Blancpain Endurance Series. While this will only be the third race in the Blancpain Endurance Series, the races held in Monza (Italy) and Navarra (Spain) have shown the new series represents the very best in endurance racing with big grids, different brands competing on a level field, plenty of racing action, all taking place on some of the most famous circuits in Europe.?

Both of them have given us very beautiful battles, and in the video below you can see their last epic battle. It is in Imola, 1993. The Ayrton Senna is within the McLaren MP4-8, which was using the V8's Ford. Behind him is the Alain Prost Williams FW15C. The car of Adrian Newey was using a V10 of Renault, which is much stronger than the V8's Ford. The battle is for second place, while in front was Damon Hill.

For the record, the "teacher" won this Grand Prix, with Michael Schumacher finishing second and the well-known commentator of BBC, Martin Brundle, to complete the podium. The race was marked by several retirements and two of them were Hill, who parked due to problem in the braking system and Senna, whose MP4-8 had problem in the hydrolics. Enjoy!

24 hour races, by very definition, are endurance affairs that require a different approach to conventional racing formats. For around the clock races like Le Mans, often teams and drivers will keep the aggression in check and avoid any risky overtaking manoevres.At this year's Le Mans race however, Benoit Treluyer didn't get that memo. Watch the following video...

Aussie Dean Evans, a well known motoring journalist, raced in the 2005 Lotus Trophy series at the fabled Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst. It was a reverse grid race, meaning Evans started in 16th place (with 12 faster Elises behind him). He cut his way through the field to make it into 1st position in less than a lap.

Engines
• The powertrains will be turbo 1.600 cc and will have 6 cylinder device "V", with an angle at 90 ° and diameter must not exceed 80mm (+ / - 0.1mm).
• The maximum speed will be 15,000 rpm
• The weight of the engine should not be less than 155 pounds.
• The flow of fuel is fixed at 100 kg / hour.
• In addition, there will be internal starter, which means that the driver can activate the engine alone, if for some reason goes out.

Gearbox

• The gearboxes will be 8 and not 7 Transmissions.
• Since the beginning of the season, teams will be invited to choose the start of the season with only one escalation and they will be able to change it only once during the season! This year, teams have 30 available escalations to choose whatever fits, depending on the track. This issue will create headaches, as there are tracks where the spiral is located at the ends, as in Monza, chosen far scaling and Monaco chosen too short, and a top speed barely reaches 300 Km / h.

Energy Recovery Systems (ERS)

• The output will double to 120 KW, ie 160.9 horsepower, and the driver can use them for 8.4 seconds per round, from 6.68 currently.
• Since the car will enter the pit lane, the only engine that works is the motor as the standard engine will turn off automatically.
• The unit weight will be between 20 and 25 kg.

Front wings

• The width of the front wing will be reduced by 150mm. This means that the 1800mm is today, will fall to 1650mm, ie it will return to 2008 levels.

Weight car

• The minimum weight of the car should not be less than 660 pounds, from 640 currently.

In third place Mark Webber obeyed the team radio, which ordered him not to pass Vettel in the final round.

As for the drivers' championship, the Sebastian Vettel leads by 204 points, followed by Mark Webber with 124 and third place by Fernando Alonso with 112. In the constructors' championship lead with the RedBull 328 points, followed by McLaren on 218 and in third position with a Ferrari 164.

The issue with the F1 engines probably is not closed, and it appears that we have a long road to walk. From 2014 and on we are going to have V6 turbo engines. From a first point of view this is not a big problem. So you may wonder what is the point of discussion? The big issue is the speed limiter, which will fall to 15,000 rpm, from 18,000 currently. Thus, it is reasonable to influence the sound that reaches our ears, something that does not like Bernie Ecclestone.His relations with the British FIA and its president, Jean Todt, are not good and the "war" that exists between them on this issue does not seem to end so easily. The 80year old fears that the new engines and especially the sound they produce, will disapoint F1 fans which will have a financial impact on the sport. Ecclestone worship for money is known, and does not hesitate to threaten the FIA to make complaints if the noise is above the level of Formula 1. The side of the CEO of Formula 1 wants to maintain the maximum speed to 18,000.

We may have almost 3 years until the start of the season of 2014, however, we are going to watch and read several more episodes in the war engines.

The new engines are gonig to be turbo V6, with a capacity of 1.6 liters. However, its not yet known the details about their performance. KERS would still be in the cars, but even for that we don`t have more information. The news is almost official, and derives from the Commission meeting of Formula 1. The only thing that remains is the validation of the new regulations by the World Motor Sport Council.

Renault wants like mad the 4-cylinders engine, and has threatened to leave if not entered in F1, but the strength of opposition by Ferrari and Mercedes, and McLaren's desire is certainly greater.

The aggressiveness of Lewis Hamilton is known. In Monaco, the British took two penalties for the incidents with Felipe Massa and Pastor Maldonado, while in Canada, we saw the first resign of 26year old driver, as Jenson Button did not see him, so it falls on him and put him out of the race. However just for the record, in the most recent incident Hamilton has no responsibility.

Many people believe that the "Billion Dollar Man" must "calm down" and drive with more patience. Instead, the CEO of Formula 1, Bernie Ecclestone, believes that the Champion of 2008 should not change the way that leads inside the track.

..."People are wrong to criticize Lewis. What we want is "passion" drivers, and all the people who attemd & watch F1 want the same. If we analyze what is happening and how well the drivers are doing, Lewis is doing great, same for Sebastian and Button. So let Lewis compete. I was a very good friend of Senna, and if you see what he did,... he was a real fighter, and the other drivers were forced to step aside and let him pass"...

Furthemeore,the 80year Ecclestone underlines that similar incidents occurring in the most rear seats, but no deals with them.

..."Maybe Lewis did one or two "questionable" moves, but others have done the same and no one has examined what happened to the rearmost seats. We saw many people struggling to Canada, and Jenson did a great job. This is what the audience want to see"...

As announced, the Mazda "reconstructed" the 787B model and went back to Le Mans, 20 years after the legendary victory in 1991. The original 787B is the first and only car that won with the legendary "rotary" engine.

The Mazda 787B comes with an engine with four rotors that delivers 700 horses, although it is rumored that can deliver up to 900, a force able to make the car participate this year at Le Mans.

The Mazda 787B ran Circuit de la Sarth track few hours before the beginning of the 79th 24-hour race. Drivers of the car were Johnny Herbert (drove 20 years ago, and earned a victory on the legendary track), and the Patrick Dempsey (the famous actor).

LATEST NEWS!!!

Sebastien Ogier has ended Sebastien Loeb's run of victories in the world championship by winning the Acropolis Rally.

Ogier, whose last win in the WRC was on the Jordan Rally two months ago, got the better of his Citroen team-mate Loeb following a close battle that raged up until the event-closing Power Stage. Loeb had won the previous two rounds in Argentina and Italy.

It was the third time this season that Ogier, the Junior world champion in 2008, and co-driver Julien Ingrassia have triumphed in the WRC and means that Citroen has now won the last six rounds of the series.

Loeb settled for second - and his 100th WRC podium - in the overall standings with title rival Mikko Hirvonen close behind in his Ford Fiesta RS WRC.

Juho Hanninen clinched victory in the Super 2000 World Rally Championship category in his Red Bull Skoda Fabia.

Rally races offer wild magic as you watching car drivers pushing their cars to the limit in dirt roads.Unfortunately accidents happen quite often as we see in this video.In the beginning a VW Golf loses the track, immediately after that another car coming from behind took off at exactly the same point at a time which the rescuers helped the driver of the first. Fortunately no one was killed.

The fact that the Japanese driver is one of the best pilots in F1 grid, is an issue that we all accept. The reason for Kamui Kobayashi, who finished the race in Canada in seventh position. I do not know how many of you noticed what he performed in Q2. The drifting is something that he has for sure in his blood!
