Red Bull help Austria Grand Prix seal a Formula One return in an increasingly packed 2014 schedule

jacobmay   July 30, 2017   Comments Off on Red Bull help Austria Grand Prix seal a Formula One return in an increasingly packed 2014 schedule

A July 6 date was confirmed on Tuesday by Red Bull, the energy drinks company founded by Austrian billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz, which owns the eponymous Red Bull Formula One team and also the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg in the Styrian Alps. Mateschitz is a close friend of F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone. The Red Bull statement simply said: “Dietrich Mateschitz [Red Bull owner] and Bernie Ecclestone have reached agreement to the effect that Formula 1 will come back to Styria next year.” The Red Bull Ring, formerly known as the A1-Ring, was mooted as a possible venue to fill the gap left vacant in this calendar by the withdrawal of the New Jersey GP. Although in the end no deal was struck, Mateschitz has made no secret of his desire to see Formula One return to the circuit. The deal will be taken as a sign of his increasing power and influence. A beautiful venue, its remote location and lack of infrastructure has counted against it, although Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko was adamant last winter that such concerns were “nonsense”, arguing that it “managed well enough in the 1970s and 1980s”. It hosted its last race in 2003 before Red Bull revamped it. The July 6 date has already caused plenty of speculation about what the knock-on effect might be on the rest of the calendar. With the governing body ruling out a clash with Le Mans 24 Hours (June 14-15) from now onwards, there are plenty of races and few spare weekends. Russia and New Jersey are both due to join the calendar, which could make 22 in total if all 19 from this season survive. Added to the return of in-season testing, and winter testing starting earlier than usual due to the advent of the… Read more »

Austin Dillon wins at Eldora in first NASCAR dirt race in 43 years

jacobmay   July 27, 2017   Comments Off on Austin Dillon wins at Eldora in first NASCAR dirt race in 43 years

The Camping World Truck Series’ debut on dirt went from novelty to mainstay in the span of three hours Wednesday night at Eldora Speedway, as Austin Dillon scored the first NASCAR national series win on a dirt track in 43 years. If you watched and weren’t entertained, I don’t know what to tell you. “This is real racing right here, this is all I’ve got to say,” Dillon said in victory lane after beating Kyle Larson to the finish line in a green-white-checker sprint. The thing is, that wasn’t just the joy in Dillon coming out after he reached victory lane. The excitement of being at Tony Stewart’s track was palpable and authentic. Drivers and team members exclaimed throughout the evening about the race, and heck, not even a discouraging word was said by the NASCAR social media chamber, a notoriously finicky segment. A big reason for that excitement? The racing. Yes, it was different. But it wasn’t just the difference in styles in how a driver attacks a half-mile dirt track versus a 1.5 mile asphalt track that made Wednesday night mesmerizing. It was multiple grooves, the throttle management and a genuine sense that the race was ultimately going to be decided by the drivers and their trucks, not by clean air. (Which can be a bit of an oxymoron at a dirt track anyway.) Throw in a big helping of nostalgia — many NASCAR drivers grew up racing local dirt tracks — and it’s hard not to consider the night a rousing success. Need proof of how that all came together? Look no further than the battle between Norm Benningand Clay Greenfield in the Last Chance Qualifier race to get into the 150 lap main event. Instead of relying only on single truck qualifying to set the field for the race, NASCAR used heat races and a… Read more »

Greg Rutherford ruled of Anniversary Games through injury

jacobmay   July 27, 2017   Comments Off on Greg Rutherford ruled of Anniversary Games through injury

Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford has pulled out of next weekend’s Anniversary Games in London because of injury. The 26-year-old has not competed since pulling his right hamstring at the Diamond League meet in Paris on 6 July. But he said he still hoped to be fit for next month’s World Championships in Moscow, and has been given more time – until 30 July – to recover. Rutherford said: “I’m working as hard as I can.” The Englishman was not named in the GB team announced this week for the Worlds, which start on 10 August. British Athletics performance director Neil Black, who has said the Olympic champion does not have to compete prior to Moscow in order to prove his fitness, will pick between Rutherford and Chris Tomlinson. The Anniversary Games is a three-day meeting being held at London’s Olympic Stadium between 26-28 July. It marks a year since the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games. Rutherford had been hoping to compete alongside British team-mates Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-Hill, who is also struggling with an ankle injury, on the second day. The trio all claimed gold medals within an hour of each other on 4 August, which became known as ‘Super Saturday’, in one of the most memorable moments of the Games.

Daniel Ricciardo plays down spin in Silverstone testing

jacobmay   July 26, 2017   Comments Off on Daniel Ricciardo plays down spin in Silverstone testing

Daniel Ricciardo minimised the importance of an off-track moment on what was effectively an audition for a seat with Red Bull in 2014. The Australian, who races for Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso, lost the car at Silverstone’s Luffield corner on his seventh lap of a test on Thursday. “I had a small off, but otherwise it was a trouble-free day. The off was my mistake; I lost the rear,” he said. The 24-year-old added: “I drove to my ability and did what I could.” Ricciardo set the third-fastest time of the day in his afternoon’s running in the Red Bull. He also set the quickest lap, behind the wheel of his regular Toro Rosso in the morning, when he was 0.215 seconds quicker than he was in the Red Bull. The second-fastest driver was another Red Bull junior, Spaniard Carlos Sainz, also in the Toro Rosso. Sainz, who races in the GP3 feeder series, took over the car from Ricciardo in the afternoon and was 0.044secs slower. Ricciardo said: “It was a good opportunity to get behind the wheel and experience two different beasts. “In terms of the inevitable speculation, I think this test is something for Red Bull to look at, but there’s still the rest of the season with Toro Rosso to do, so I’ll switch my focus back to that and won’t get too caught up in any rumours.” Portuguese Antonio Felix Da Costa,  who races in the Formula Renault 3.5 series and is a possibility for a seat at Toro Rosso next season, drove the Red Bull in the morning and was 0.771secs slower than Ricciardo managed later on. The headline lap times are not necessarily an accurate comparison of relative pace because it is impossible to know the specifications in which the teams run the cars,… Read more »
