Brad Keselowski has opened the Chase for the Sprint Cup on the right note with victory in the MYAFIBSTORY.COM 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Although it was Keselowski’s fifth win of the year, it wasn’t an easy one after a pit road mishap midway through the race placed him down the order. A break with a caution period got him back inside the top four and then with Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson battling for the lead, Keselowski split the pair to go through the middle and into the lead which he didn’t surrender with 18 laps to run. .  Read more >>

Valentino Rossi sent a Misano crowd into raptures as he ended a 23 race winless streak with victory in the San Marino Grand Prix. The Yamaha rider once again showed signs he has lost none of his talent that took him to seven MotoGP world titles as he broke team-mate Jorge Lorenzo to take the chequered flag. The victory was Yamaha’s maiden win of the 2014 campaign and Rossi‘s first since a triumph in the 2012 Dutch Grand Prix at the famous Assen circuit. Honda’s Dani Pedrosa completed the podium as he took advantage of a rare fall for reigning world champion and championship leader Marc Marquez.
The Spaniard lost the front while battling Rossi for the lead. Marquez was able to re-mount his Honda to score a solitary point in 15th position..

Happy to have achieved our best WRC finish here this weekend - finishing 6th at Rally Australia after a hard fought battle and as the leading Hyundai driver which was an added bonus. The 100% finishing ratio of all the WRC cars this weekend made it more difficult to climb the leaderboard than normal but we are happy that we were mixing it amongst the top 6 for the whole rally. Not only have we closed the gap again to the leaders this weekend and continued our progression, but also doing it consistently on every stage is a good step forward.
Throughout the course of the weekend we had no major problems - with the worse of our issues being a wrong tyre choice on Saturday afternoon which cost us 10-12 seconds while in a crucial battle with Mads Ostberg. It was a very enjoyable battle with Mads, and over the 3 days there was never more than 8 seconds separating us. Unfortunately, Mads had a suspension problem on the last stages, but until then it was a very enjoyable fight where even trying to gain a tenth of a second was hard work..

Rally Australia - 11th Sep 14
Our preparation this week has gone well and eager to get into Shakedown tomorrow. From recce, the roads are in great condition, maybe even better and more hard base than last year. However, the roads are quite challenging in places, particularly the 6 Friday stages. Friday will be crucial for the whole event, as Saturday's stages including the long 48km stage has a heavy covering of gravel that no one will want to sweep. The road order for Saturday is determined by the reverse classification order of the WRC cars from Friday - hence why we have to push from the start..  Read more >>
 
Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship leader Colin Turkington extended his advantage at the top of the standings with a double victory at Rockingham; before Rob Austin went on to score a hugely popular win in the final race. eBay Motors driver Turkington came into the weekend having never won at the Northamptonshire circuit but immediately banished that record in an exciting opener. The 2009 champion got the jump on pole-sitter Sam Tordoff off the line and despite coming under intense early pressure from the MG KX Clubcard Fuel Save racer, he eventually pulled clear to win by a comfortable margin. Pole-sitter Tordoff held on to second from team-mate Jason Plato until the finish. .  Read more >>
 
A podium finish at Monza has handed Kiwi driver Earl Bamber the rookie's trophy in the Porsche Supercup but he has his eyes set on a bigger prize. Bamber finished third behind Germany's Sven Muller and Klaus Bachler on the famous track in Italy overnight (NZ time).That was good enough to give him the year's title for first-season drivers. But it also kept him at the top of the overall championship and that's where he wants to stay with just two races left..  Read more >>
 
Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton managed to convert his pole position into race victory as he crossed the finish line and became the winner of the FIA Formula One 2014 Italian Grand Prix today. He overcame a poor start to claim his sixth victory of the season in Italy and the 28th of his career, surpassing Jackie Stewart on the all-time wins list..  Read more >>
 
Hayden Paddon and co-driver John Kennard will be drawing on their experience competing on the high-speed country roads and tight, technical forest tracks typical of Rally Australia when they head to this year’s Australian World Rally Championship event. Running 12 to 14 September, the tenth round of the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship is again based in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, a venue that Paddon and Kennard have visited twice before, including their history-making clinching of the 2011 FIA Production car World Rally Championship title..  Read more >>
