Di Grassi’s shoreline sensation

DI GRASSI’S SHORELINE SENSATION

Abt Schaeffler star retakes championship lead with stunning drive

LONG BEACH, USA (April 2 2016) – Redemption came to Lucas di Grassi in the shape of a perfectly-judged win in the FIA Formula E Faraday Future Long Beach ePrix.

 

The Abt Schaeffler Audi Sport driver had sprayed the victory champagne at the last race in Mexico City, only for the disappointment of disqualification to hit home long after the bubbles had fizzled out.

But with a steely determination to take advantage of any opportunity that would come his way in the fight for the 2016 FIA Formula E Championship, di Grassi produced a drive of genuine quality.

 

From pole position, it was DS Virgin Racing’s Sam Bird who led in the early stages of the race, but di Grassi kept him in his sights, and when he managed to get a better run down the back straight he pulled a great move on the Brit into Turn 5 to take the lead.

 

Bird managed to keep on di Grassi’s tail through the mid-race car change, but in his second car he was caught out by cold brakes and locked up into Turn 5, sending him down the escape road. He managed to avoid any serious damage, but lost a hat full of places and any hope of victory.

 

Di Grassi now had a comfortable lead over Venturi’s Stephane Sarrazin, only for all of it to be wiped out when last year’s winner – Nelson Piquet Jr – crashed over the kerbs at the first chicane and walloped into the wall. The Qualcomm Safety Car was required to retrieve his stricken NEXTEV TCR machine, handing Sarrazin an unexpected shot at the win.

 

But di Grassi timed the restart to perfection and cruised home for his second win of the year. With Sebastien Buemi suffering a disastrous race – he collided with Robins Frijns, which not only damaged both cars so badly they were forced into making an early car change, he then received a drive-through penalty – di Grassi has taken over the lead in the points standings he lost along with his Mexico win.

 

“I’m very happy to show that if you keep your focus, keep up your work, good results come,” he said. “From the outside races always look comfortable, this is a tricky track, it’s very easy to do mistakes, it was an extremely difficult race. Stephane was quick and was putting pressure on me. It’s an extremely difficult car to drive on the edge so we had no comfort in winning the race, we just had to focus on making no mistakes.”

 

For Sarrazin second place was his first podium finish and keeps up his record of scoring points in every race so far this season.

 

“It’s amazing that since last year we have been quick but never on the podium,” said Sarrazin. “It was a very good race and we’ve improved a lot. The team has come from zero – it was completely new – so we are very happy with the car and the total package, and it was a good result.”

 

Third place fell to Daniel Abt, ensuring Abt Schaeffler scored its first ever double podium. The team piled on to the huge podium stage, where a sizeable chunk of the 17,000-strong crowd was on hand to give the drivers a fantastic ovation.

 

“I love California and I knew that coming here we would be strong,” said Abt. “I set the overall fastest lap today in FP2, but it didn’t quite work in qualifying, so I was a bit disappointed coming into the race. In the race I tried to stay cool while others around were making a lot of mistakes, and that helped me a lot. This result was so important for the team and our first double podium is for them.”

 

Fourth and fifth place for Nick Heidfeld and Bruno Senna meant it was the biggest ever points haul for Mahindra, while Bird was left ruing his error in sixth. Mexico City race winner Jerome D’Ambrosio received FanBoost for the first time in his Formula E career (di Grassi and Heidfeld were the other recipients), but it was a low-key race for the Dragon Racing driver, who finished seventh, one place ahead of his team-mate Loic Duval.

 

The final two points places were filled by maiden top-10 finishers. Simona de Silvestro became the first female driver to score points in Formula E with a strong drive to ninth place for Andretti, while Mike Conway opened his account for Venturi by claiming a single point in 10th.

 

Buemi did manage to salvage something from the race by setting the Visa Fastest Lap and the two bonus points it brings, but for him and the Renault e.dams team it was a race to forget. They will now be re-doubling their efforts and hoping to get back on the front foot as the series heads to their home race – the inaugural Visa Paris ePrix – which takes place on April 23.

Formula E stars hit the Hollywood walk of fame

FORMULA E STARS HIT THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

Electric racers pay tribute to Hollywood motorsport icons

LOS ANGELES, USA (March 31 2016) – With the Faraday Future Long Beach ePrix taking place on Saturday, April 2, some of the FIA Formula E Championship star drivers took a trip to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 

Race winner Lucas di Grassi and his Abt Schaeffler Audi Sport team-mate Daniel Abt were joined by Mahindra Racing’s ex-Formula 1 star Nick Heidfeld and Robins Frijns, who races for Michael Andretti’s team in the all-electric championship.

Pictures were taken with icons such as Steve McQueen, Tom Cruise and Rush director Ron Howard, as the drivers sought out their Hollywood idols’ stars.

 

“Of course I’d seen it before on TV, but it was different to how I’d imagined it,” said Frijns, who was recognised by a Formula E fan as he posed for a photo. “It’s the home race for the team and we hope to have a lot of support here, so it’s a race that I am really looking forward to.”

 

“The US is a very important market, especially California,” said di Grassi. “It’s where the electric car started and where Tesla and Faraday Future is based. For us to be here promoting electric racing in Long Beach, which is a very traditional circuit, it’s a good place to race on, very wide and very well organised. It would be good to have more races in the US, it’s where the innovation is and I’m very happy to be here.”

Harvick en final de fotografía se lleva el primer lugar

Mar 14, 2016
  • En un final de fotografía Kevin Harvick se lleva la victoria sobre Carl Edwards.
  • Uno de los finales más reñidos de la NASCAR se lleva a cabo en el Phoenix International Raceway.
  • Tan sólo una centésima de segundo de diferencia.

Domingo 14 de marzo de 2016. Avondale, Arizona. En un final de película, Kevin Harvick se llevó la competencia estelar de los 500 kilómetros de la Good Sam 500, sobre su contendiente Carl Edwards, segundo lugar y Denny Hamlin, en tercero.

En la última vuelta al óvalo de una milla, Harvick y Edwards pelaron hasta el último segundo por llevarse los laureles, sin embargo la fotografía de la línea final dio la victoria a Harvick, en el que, sin lugar a dudas, ha sido uno de los finales más reñidos y emocionantes en la historia de la Serie Sprint Cup de la NASCAR, el cual fue presenciado en el Circuito Internacional de Phoenix (PIR por sus siglas en inglés), pues la diferencia entre el primer y segundo lugar fue de tan solo una centésima de segundo (.010) o lo que es lo mismo, tan sólo cuatro pulgadas de distancia.

Éste es el primer triunfo de Harvick en la temporada y lo posiciona junto a Kyle Busch como contendientes por el liderazgo de la serie; sin embargo Busch tiene todavía que lograr un primer lugar si quiere ser el líder absoluto.

Kyle Busch terminó en la cuarta posición seguido por Earnhardt, Kurt Busch, Kenseth, Elliott, Dillon y Blaney, para completar la lista de los 10 primeros lugares.

Artemis Racing and Bermuda share spotlight on Super Sunday

Oct 19, 2015

ACEA 2015 / Photo Ricardo Pinto

Artemis Racing grabbed the lion’s share of the spotlight, writing an epic comeback story on Sunday at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in Bermuda.

The host venue of Bermuda was also shining bright, offering up perfect racing conditions, a large but controlled spectator fleet, and an enthusiastic public. It was a tremendous opening event in the home of the 2017 America’s Cup.

On the race course, the three double-point races had three different winners with Artemis Racing proving the most consistent performer on the day to take the win.

“This event meant a lot to us. We’ve always known we had the potential, but we’ve been tripped up by mistakes,” said Artemis Racing skipper Nathan Outteridge, his sailing kit dripping with celebratory Moët & Chandon champagne.

But this was an unlikely victory. Not only did the Swedish challenger arrive at the event in fifth place out of the six teams, but in the pre-start ahead of race two, the team was involved in a collision with an Umpire boat, incurring serious damage.

After a strong second place finish in the first race, it appeared Artemis Racing would be knocked out of the event. In the moments before the starting gun fired, the team ducked behind the Japanese boat, and as Outteridge turned up towards the line, he was confronted with an Umpire boat heading directly towards him. The closing speed would have been in excess of 25 knots.

“At that point we couldn’t go anywhere,” Outteridge explained. “He went straight between our bows but thankfully nobody was hurt. There was a serious amount of damage to our boat though.”

In work worthy of an F1 pit crew, the Artemis Racing squad stripped off the broken bow sprit and the now useless Code Zero sail in record time. After a quick check for reliability and with less than two minutes to spare, the team was lining up for the next start. Incredibly, they blasted of the starting line with more speed than anyone else and won not only the start but the second race.

“We owned that start… It was huge payback for all the hard work from the guys who stripped the gear off, checked the boat, and got us ready just in time.”

In the third and final race, the Swedish team needed to make a pass on the last leg to grab a fourth place finish and secure the points needed to win the regatta. It was a popular and well-deserved event win for Artemis Racing.

It was a less satisfying day for ORACLE TEAM USA, who won the first race, but then posted a third place and fifth place finish, settling for third overall.

“We just had a bad third race,” said skipper Jimmy Spithill. “We got a terrible start, and were on the back foot for the entire race. Artemis was able to slip past us near the finish and that cost us second place here and won them the regatta. We made too many mistakes in that race and that took us out of the running for the win.”

Emirates Team New Zealand, with an impressive win in race three, extends its advantage on the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series leaderboard.

“We’re absolutely stoked to have been able to put together some good performances this year,” said Kiwi helmsman Peter Burling. “We haven’t done too much sailing in those types of conditions. To win the last one by the margin we did was really satisfying.”

The racing wasn’t the only thing on display this weekend. This event marked the first racing at the host venue of the next America’s Cup and Bermuda delivered in style.

Over 10 000 people were on the water to watch the racing as near 2 000 spectator craft ringed the race course. The crowds on shore were equally impressive and enthusiastic.

“This was a fantastic day,” said Dr. Grant Gibbons, the Minister for Economic Development. “There is a lot of local excitement now. People were out cheering for their teams today. Friday night there was a good buzz here. Front Street was as excited as I’ve seen it in a long time… A fantastic weekend overall.”

“We’ve seen Bermuda come out and put its arms around this event and I think it shows this is going to be a great event in 2017,” said Russell Coutts the CEO of the America’s Cup Event Authority.

“We had three races and three winners today. We’ve had three events now with three different winners. The racing is competitive and that makes it compelling. I wouldn’t even be surprised if we had another winner in our next event. That’s how close it is.”

“Vamos a competir por la Copa MX”, Stefan Medina

“Vamos a competir por la Copa MX”, Stefan Medina

El defensa de los Rayados mencionó que buscarán llegar a lo más alto en el certamen que comienza mañana

Los Rayados disputarán este miércoles el primer partido del Apertura 2015 de la Copa MX ante Correcaminos, y lo harán con la mira en llegar a la pelea por el título, aseguró Stefan Medina en rueda de prensa en El Barrial.

“Tenemos la motivación de llegar a una final y ganarla. Vamos a arrancar el torneo con esa mentalidad y vamos a competir por el título. El día de mañana va a ser una bonita oportunidad (ante Correcaminos)”, mencionó.

El jugador de Monterrey habló sobre el conjunto tamaulipeco, próximo rival de los albiazules en la competencia, y aceptó que será una prueba complicada.

“Es un equipo que nos va a exigir. Es un buen grupo que tiene demasiadas cosas interesantes y mañana va a ser un gran examen. Vamos a salir con esa mentalidad de competir por esos tres puntos que nos den esa confianza” afirmó.

Los albiazules tuvieron una pretemporada exigente y se prepararon de la mejor manera para el Apertura 2015, y aunque en la Jornada 1 sufrieron una derrota ante la UNAM, Medina confía en que el equipo mejore.

“Se hace difícil cuando te meten tres decir que las cosas están bien, pero el equipo trabajó de una excelente manera, nos preparamos. Tuvimos una buena pretemporada, no arrancamos de la mejor manera pero sabemos de la condiciones que tenemos y vamos a darlo todo por mejorar”, externó.

El defensor también opinó sobre la inauguración del Estadio BBVA Bancomer, y dijo que espera disfrutarlo al cien por ciento.

“Es especial para todos. Va a ser un gran momento, ojalá todos lo disfrutemos de excelente manera”, finalizó.
