Daniel Ricciardo claimed his maiden Formula 1 race win after an impressive late charge in a thrilling Canadian Grand Prix at Montreal.
The Australian hunted down Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg in a strong final stint before passing the German with just two laps remaining.
Ricciardo made no mistakes in the final laps to bring home his first win and end Mercedes’ perfect start to the season.
Rosberg, who had been suffering from power issues, came home in second just ahead of Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel..
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has swept by Brad Keselowski with just five laps remaining to win the Pocono 400. Keselowski had dominated the race leading a total of 95 of the 160 laps, but on the final run to the chequered flag he picked-up debris on the front of his car and had engine temperature issues. The Penske driver attempted to run up behind the car of Danica Patrick, who was being lapped, to have the paper sucked off the grill. However, he miscued things and it allowed Earnhardt Jr. to drive by into the lead.
It was the second victory of the season for Earnhardt Jr., who opened the season with a win in the Daytona 500. It was his first win at the ‘Tricky Triangle’..
Turkington Delights - 9th Jun 14
Colin Turkington has reached the summit of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for the first time since his 2009 title success claiming a dominant double victory at Oulton Park today (8 June).
The 31-year-old dictated proceedings from the outset, securing pole position in a damp qualifying session on Saturday ahead of MG KX Clubcard Fuel Save’s Jason Plato and Honda Yuasa Racing’s Gordon Shedden. eBay Motors went on to enjoy a one-two finish in Sunday’s opening race in perfect conditions as Turkington held off a sustained challenge from team-mate Rob Collard..
The reigning champion took the lead of the event on Saturday’s final stage after his constant pressure appeared to force team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala into making a costly mistake. The Finn had to stop to change a rear wheel after clouting a rock at the side of the road. With a 1m 40.2s lead heading into the final day, Ogier only had to keep out of trouble on the remaining quartet of rough gravel stages to take maximum points. He did exactly that and completed the event with a 1m 23.1s advantage over second-placed Mads Ostberg..  Read more >>
This year's event was another awesome spectacle at the place they call the brickyard, and provided the 2nd closest finish ever, with only .06 sec separating Ryan Hunter-Reay from Helio Castroneves. The weekend started very well for kiwi hero Scott Dixon, being second fastest in the final practice session on Carb Day to team mate Tony Kanaan. Then along with his very speedy pit crew, they went on to win the Tag Heuer Pit Stop Challenge and the fifty thousand dollars that goes with that. During the race he looked to be positioned well running in the top five or six for most of the race, until lap 167 when he crashed out at turn 4. Andretti Autosport had an awesome day finishing 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 6th, and Ryan Hunter-Reay became the first American to win it for eight years. The decision to throw the red flag with eight laps to go, was a great one, meaning the race finished under green, and provided the exciting climax to the race, which had been missing from the last few Indy 500s as they all finished under yellow..  Read more >>

Earl Bamber has won both rounds of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, held at the Fuji International Speedway in Japan over the weekend. After missing the last round due to European racing commitments and dropping down the leader board, Bamber now resumes the lead in the series..  Read more >>
We have completed a very tough Rally Italia Sardegna - after what would be one of the most difficult events that I have competed on for the first time. Coming into the event our target was to learn and gain miles - which we did. However, I completely underestimated the challenge of these very technical roads, which reflected in the average pace notes written from recce. This then made it difficult for the whole weekend. Throughout the 3 days of the rally we made small improvements and learnt a lot. Most importantly we completed most of the stages and now have a lot of data that we can study. So we can now improve for our next events - including Rally Poland in 3 weeks..  Read more >>
Having driven steadily and sensibly in the opening three Saturday stages at Rally Italia Sardegna, Hayden Paddon and John Kennard had to stop part-way through the final stage to avoid further damage to their misfiring engine. On their debut event with Hyundai Motorsport in the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship, Paddon and Kennard are focused on learning all they can about competing in the Hyundai i20 WRC for the first time while also gaining valuable knowledge about the slow, rocky roads of Sardinia which they’re contesting for the first time..  Read more >>
A tough day is the way Hayden Paddon described the first full day of Rally Italia Sardegna as he and co-driver John Kennard make their competitive debut with the Hyundai Motorsport World Rally Team.
Tackling 159.98 kilometres of narrow, rock-strewn roads in the centre of the island of Sardinia proved challenging in several ways for Paddon – a puncture, niggles with the gearbox, the car not handling as he’d like it to and contending with the rocks and tricky road surfaces – but despite the trials, the Kiwis finished all eight stages which was their key goal..
A short blast around the streets of the south coast town of Cagliari on the island of Sardinia marked the official start of Hayden Paddon’s debut with the Hyundai Motorsport World Rally Team on the evening of Thursday 5 June. While the opening super special stage of Rally Italia Sardegna was only around a kilometre in length, Paddon and co-driver John Kennard also face one of the longest special stages of the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship season during the event, the massive 59.70km Monte Lerno stage which also features the famed ‘Micky’s jump’..  Read more >>
Mt Maunganui based rally driver David Holder was rewarded for his resolve to drive consistently with a solid third place overall at last weekend’s Lone Star Rally of Canterbury, which doubled as the third round of the Brian Green Property Group New Zealand Rally Championship (NZRC) powered by VINZ. Both the Saturday night and the Sunday racing stages produced some extremely tricky conditions at times, with unpredictable ice patches appearing and leaving little grip. However Holder, in the Stadium Cars Mitsubishi, made a solid start as he continues to develop his skills in the car, finishing the two Saturday night stages strongly and clocking convincingly into third place overall. .  Read more >>
