We have completed Rally Catalunya after a weekend of highs and lows. However, our performance and times on the Friday gravel stages were very pleasing and gives us a lot of confidence moving forward to our next rally – Wales Rally GB.
As usual here on the gravel stages in Catalunya, the calm sunny Friday morning presented a lot of dust challenges following the first car on the road. In some places it was like hitting a white wall and literally not being able to see past the bonnet of the car. We pushed through it and trusted the pacenotes, and we were rewarded with our first stage win on SS3, beating World Champion Sebastian Ogier by 2.1 seconds. It is great to get the monkey off our back for the first stage win, but now we want many more.

Brad Keselowski has won his way into the next round after an impressiver performance at Talladega. With his victory, he escapes elimination. He ended up on top thanks to wingman and Team Penske teammate Joey Logano. "I can't believe it," Keselowski said. "Talladega is such a wild card and to be able to win here you have to catch breaks and make your own breaks, a little of both. I can't believe we won at Talladega. This race is the scariest of the three in the bracket. To be able to win here is really a privilege, it really is.".  Read more >>
 
Valentino Rossi kept a cool head amid chaos to win a drama-filled Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island. The Yamaha rider, who started from eighth on the grid, inherited the lead after Honda’s Marc Marquez crashed with 10 laps remaining, having seemed in control of the race and on his way to victory.

In the end, the nine-time world champion kept his nerve while others encountered dramas to win his 250th premier class grand prix..  Read more >>
