Been a terrible year for the TT, sadly. Three fatalities. Even worse, the second fatality happened in that side car race and the victim was wrongly identified - the organisers originally said the passenger had passed away but it was in-fact the rider.

 

Just read that they were wearing each others dog tags. Obivously no idea if it was intentional or not. Competitors at the TT have to wear dog tags or have a patch sewn into their leathers with medical information on, the Sidecar team in question chose the former but organisers are intending to make it so competitors next year need both.

Safari rally Kenya (WRC) was quite a spectacle last weekend. With the  Fords and Huyundai’s struggling to keep the dust and sand out of their engine bays it wasn’t very competitive though… 

 

Meanwhile in Germany saturday’s 4hr VLN race on the ring filled up the top slot absentees with a few surprising entries including a Peugeot RCZ, LC500 and a drifting BMW. The new GR86 cup car also made it’s debut (jpn crew). Maybe Toyota will support cup racing like it did with it’s predecessor but upcoming EU regulations and no mention on the TME site make me doubtful…

To be fair GT4 is a bit wanky. It's not as grunty as GT3 and GT LM, and not as close as touring car. It's very amateur. 


oh god he started on LMP2 and some kind of hypercar class discussion? 
 

something something something hypercar being 4WD and the LMP2 being faster?

I'm with him. LMP2 is where the racing is these days. hypercar has been a massive wet fart so far and i don't think the entries of Audi, porsche et al is going to make it any better. If it was up to me i'd scrap the hypercar class entirely and just fill it all with LMP2 and GT Lm pro/am

W Series cut short. Remaining 3 races cancelled and Chadwick crowned champion. Expected money failed to materialise from an investor, who is now no longer involved.

They should ask Red Bull for a little from their catering budget.

I have a Silverstone club membership thing that I used to get early access to the F1, apparently it give free entry to a load of motorsport races at the track  - what are good events to watch live - as I have never watched car racing in person.

The silverstone classic in august is a nice one. Plenty of old F1 and GT stuff being thrashed around the circuit. It's not too busy and you can get good access to the paddocks. 

It's like the Goodwood festival, but without the posh twats or the dressing up nonsense.

 

I think there are a few rounds of the British GT series at silverstone next year, they're always fun if you like see hypercars swapping paint.
