Mostert proved his Practice 1 pace was no fluke mid-way through the second session when he cleared the field by more than half a second with a 2m05.103s. It wasn't until the final few minutes, when the new tyres came out for qualifying sims, that Mostert's time came under threat. It was his former teammate Waters that lowered the benchmark, the Tickford ace banking the first four of the weekend with a 2m04.781s. Mostert had the answer, though, responding on a final green tyre run with a 2m04.792s to grab top spot by 0.01s. There was a handsome gap to the rest of the field, Scott Pye and Tim Slade both six-tenths behind Mostert. The pair traded blows in latter part of the session, Pye ultimately getting the better of Slade by 0.02s. There was a pair of Boost-backed entries next in line, James Courtney leading Brodie Kostecki, with Bryce Fullwood seventh fastest. Shane van Gisbergen finished eighth without getting the best of his new tyre run. The Kiwi had set … [Read more...] about Bathurst Supercars: Mostert completes practice sweep

It’s the next big step in the tech company’s vision to build a fully self-driving car. Apple’s fully autonomous " Project Titan " may be dead in the water, but that doesn’t mean the California tech company has given up entirely on the idea of a self-driving car. According to Reuters , Apple has received its first permit to test its self-driving cars on public roads in California. The permit allows Apple to test drive three different vehicles with six different ‘drivers' sitting behind the wheel. All three of the vehicles registered are 2015 Lexus RX450h SUVs, according to the state DMV, and are equipped with the autonomous tech. The technology will be developed together with Bosch.

India is promoting the use of electric and hybrid vehicles to save the air. Although infrastructure for the use of such vehicles is at a nascent stage, an increasing number of new car buyers are considering electric vehicles.
