The event has now become the traditional opening weekend of the Australian motorsport season, and is one of the first major international races to take place towards the beginning of the calendar year. That will continue to be the case next year, with the date locked in and tickets set to go on sale in July. “The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour has established itself as the traditional start to the Australian motor racing calendar,” said event director John Casey. “The first weekend in February also allows for international teams and drivers to compete without any clashes with other events and has become a great tradition. “We have already received strong interest in the 2018 event and look forward to working with the Bathurst Regional Council, Liqui-Moly Australia and our great partners to continue to grow this world-class event.” The 2018 event forms part of a three-year agreement with the New South Wales government, aimed at building on the 40,000-strong crowd that … [Read more...] about Bathurst 12 Hour locks down 2018 date

Following a really strong start to the 2021 campaign, which has included a podium finish at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Norris is currently sitting in third place in the drivers’ standings behind Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. But while McLaren does not appear to have a car that is capable of regularly beating the pace-setting Mercedes and Red Bull teams, Seidl thinks that Norris’ consistency could be an ace up his sleeve in holding on to a strong position in the drivers’ table. “There's always a chance,” said Seidl, when asked about the prospects of Norris keeping himself ahead of one of the Mercedes or Red Bull drivers until the end of this year. “But it's simply important that we, together with Lando, keep delivering weekend by weekend. Consistency is king, together with performance obviously, in order to out score cars that on paper, and in reality, are definitely quicker than us. “But if we keep delivering upgrades to the car, if Lando keeps doing what he … [Read more...] about Seidl: Norris can break Mercedes/Red Bull championship lock out
Yamaha has been the standout manufacturer of 2021 so far, with factory team riders Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales winning the first three races of the season between them. By contrast, Ducati's start to the campaign has been rather underwhelming, although Franceso Bagnaia does hold second position in the riders' standings ahead of Vinales and Pramac rider Johann Zarco. Suzuki's top speed pace deficit was evident in Qatar but the Japanese marque appeared much stronger in Portugal next time out, with Alex Rins running second before his crash and teammate Joan Mir finishing third. Honda's prospects have been boosted by the return of Marc Marquez following a lengthy injury-induced break, with the Spaniard leading the RC213V contingent at Portimao. How Marquez performs at Jerez, the scene of the crash that ruled him out of the entire 2020 season, will be one of the biggest talking points of this weekend. 2021 MotoGP Spanish Grand Prix session timings … [Read more...] about 2021 MotoGP Spanish GP – How to watch, session times & more
The 2021 F1 season promises the most exciting title fight in years, as Max Verstappen takes on seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton during the last year of the current rules cycle. Some smart strategic decisions and equally brilliant driving saw Hamilton draw first blood in Bahrain last month, but Verstappen drew even at Imola just weeks later with a faultless drive in tricky wet conditions. Mercedes has repeatedly stated that it faces a performance deficit to Red Bull's high-rake RB16B in 2021, something the Austrian brand insists is a clever tactic to put it under pressure. The two F1 teams are again expected to be in a class of their own at the Algarve circuit, and how their battle pans out will provide a better indication of the pecking order at the front of the field. Meanwhile, McLaren could once again threaten the top guns for a podium finish, judging by the pace Lando Norris showed at Imola in the Mercedes-powered MCL35M. Red Bull's sister team AlphaTauri and … [Read more...] about 2021 Formula 1 Portuguese Grand Prix session timings and preview
