F1: Austria could've been much worse for Mercedes

It’s not often that teammates crash into each other whilst fighting for the lead on the last lap, and although Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton did exactly that in the Austrian Grand Prix, it’s hard to go past this effort by Matt Neal who took his Honda teammate off on the LAST CORNER of a BTCC race in 2011.


BTCC 2016 - Thruxton (Rounds 7-9)

So, the question is…how much longer can they keep this going? I mean, generally in sport, there’s always the odd season or two that sticks out in the memory for some reason, and this is no exception when it comes to the world of motorsport – sure, no two years of a particular championship are ever exactly the same, and generally, the cream does tend to rise to the top eventually, but it certainly doesn’t stop their competitors from trying to knock them off course. 3,693 more words

BTCC 2016 - Donington Park (Rounds 4-6)

Well, they certainly don’t hang around, do they? In all fairness, though, I don’t think anyone expected anything else – after all, this is a discipline of motorsport that has pretty much built its reputation on the frantic, close-quarters, bumper-to-bumper nature of its racing, and, if the early indications are anything to go by, this is shaping up to be no exception. 3,279 more words

I was hoping to see the WEC sport cars at Spa, but decided to keep my costs down and stay local.

I was particularly looking forward to watching the 4 new Subarus in action. 133 more words


BTCC 2016 - Brands Hatch Indy (Rounds 1-3)

Well, it’s back…and, to be honest, it was like it had never been away, wasn’t it? I mean, generally, the common theme among all forms of motorsport is that the general standard on-track is inevitably going to drop off after a while – granted, you might get the odd decent race here or there, but, by and large, after two or three years of top-quality action and high drama that, in some cases, goes right down to the final lap, that level gets harder to maintain with every passing season and eventually falls away. 3,265 more words
