DTM fast forwarding towards the future

DTM (Deutschen Tourenwagen Masters) or the German Touring Series is fast forwarding to the future with a conceptualization of touring cars powered by battery or hydrogen fuel cell technology.

As the world embraces plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles, every major motorsports series and teams are switching to variations of hybrids for sustainability and relevancy. EV race cars are only a matter of time. Therefore, the DTM organizers turned its focus towards creating a visionary new electric-drive series, which could run alongside DTM, providing manufacturers with an unprecedented opportunity to design and develop its own high-performance electric vehicles of the future.

In 2019, the DTM introduced efficient, high-performance four-cylinder turbo engines capable of 600bhp. This season’s regulations also saw the use of environment-friendly fuel. By 2022, the DTM is looking at including cars with hybrid technology.

An EV Touring cars series?


The new concept series sees the supply of energy from two different sources: regular battery or fuel cell technology. For pit stops, the use of robotics to replace tyres and battery pack under the car would be used. Over the course of a 40-minute race, each car would require a mandatory stop for fresh power. These futuristic race cars would be capable of power outputs exceeding 1000bhp for brief periods of time, and of achieving top speeds in excess of 300km/h.


Currently, there are three manufacturers in the DTM with the departure of Mercedes-Benz prior to the start of the 2019 season. Audi won the titles outright, finishing tops from BMW and Aston Martin.  


The spectacular DTM

For 35 years, the DTM has thrilled millions of fans across the world, and has become Europe’s premium Touring Car series, developing the touring car template to its most extreme. Today’s cars are far from production-spec, constructed from carbon-fiber, equipped with state-of-the-art aerodynamics and fitted with powerful 600bhp turbo-charged engines.

Attract more manufacturers


By implementing a new EV/hydrogen fuel cell series, the organizers hope to attract more manufacturers into the fold. The series allows them to enter cars that resemble their road-going models, an option that current all-electric race series doesn’t currently permit. This could be an excellent test bed for car makers.

In order to set this through, the organizers see three primary factors as key pillars: Technical feasibility, Financial viability, and fan, manufacturer and sponsor interest.

Audi Sport ready for New Formula E Season

With the Formula E season starting 22 November, Audi Sport has arrived early at Riyadh in preparation for the season-opener. This season’s Formula E is expected to be more exciting than ever with new teams and contenders in the mix. There are 12 teams vying for the Formula E crown this season.

The team shipped ten containers to Saudi Arabia, that’s a total of some ten tons of cargo. Logistics expert DHL picked up the crates at the team’s base in Kempten and hauled them to the Stuttgart airport, from where they flew directly to Saudi Arabia’s capital city Riyadh. The cargos will be delivered to the pitlanes at the track and only on 19 November, the teams are allowed to open the cargo boxes.

Audi Sport team are in pursuit of the title with Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi, Abt and di Grassi have carefully packed their travel bags and handed them over to the team. The contents of each driver’s bags: two racing suits, two pairs of gloves, two pairs of shoes, three sets of fireproof underwear, team wear, plus the individually adjusted earphone systems for radio communications during the races are all part of the standard gear. In addition, Abt’s luggage contains a can of hairspray, while di Grassi takes along a skipping rope for pre-race concentration exercises.

With the things already set in motion, Audi Sport is looking to make their mark on the 2019/20 Formula E season. The two rounds in Riyadh  will be races number 59 and 60 in  Formula E. Audi Sport is the only team to have contested all of them with the same driver pairing, and with a track record of 12 race wins and 40 podium finishes as well as one drivers’ and one teams’ title, is the most successful team in Formula E.

Vinales wins Meaning-less Malaysian Grand Prix

The penultimate round this year’s MotoGP race fell to the Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang.  This time around, at least someone other than newly crowned Champion Marc Marquez was able to win the race, although a rather meaning-less one. Factory Yamaha squad’s Maverick Vinales turned up the juice to beat Marquez and Andrea Dovizioso. Dovizioso’s podium finish did Shell some justice as they were the event and the team title sponsors. Fan favorite Valentino Rossi managed fourth, edging out Suzuki’s Alex Rins.

Shell held plenty of off-track activities to get people to go watch the race live and it apparently worked. Furthermore, tickets were relatively cheap by International Grand Prix standards to watch the world’s premier two-wheel race. The fans got their money’s worth as MotoGP is the most exciting race to watch and it doesn’t go on forever, with so many unnecessary interruptions.

The race started at high noon, as always Marquez was lightning quick off the line and grabbed six positions in the first two corners. Vinales led  Jack Miller in the first lap, with Marquez trailing close in third. With nine places gained, the reigning champion settled in behind Miller for a short while. After muscling past the Australian, Marquez began to work on closing the 1.6 second gap to Viñales.

The race quickly settled as Marquez eased up and allowed Vinales to maintain his lead. He rather finished in the points and prevented from ending up in the dirt. Dovizioso had dispatched Miller to get up to third place. Miller then had to confront Valentino Rossi who was blazing up behind him. The Doctor took his time and dispatched Miller in Turn 9 for fourth, with seven laps to go. Rossi next went after Dovizioso, but the Yamaha proved not as effective as the Ducati. He would settle in and defended his place from Rins. The order would finish with Vinales the winner, Marquez, Dovizioso, Rossi and Rins.


For Marquez, the result in Malaysia him the honor of being the first rider in history to score 17 MotoGP class podium finishes in a single season, extending his unbroken run of top-two finishes to 15. Marquez’s last finish outside of the top two came at the Czech GP in 2018 when he was third.

The teams now get a week’s rest after three consecutive GPs, before they return to action in Valencia for the finale, 14 – 17 November.

MotoGP Malaysian Grand Prix preview

With the Riders’ crown already in Marc Marquez’s hands, the penultimate round of MotoGP, the Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang Circuit, isn’t going to count for much except for Marquez’s team Repsol Honda trying to seal the Teams’ honors before the finale in Valencia, Spain. In the teams’ standings, Repsol Honda and Ducati are almost neck-to-neck with 408 and 409 points, respectively.

Marquez is looking for a personal best as he guns after a sixth straight Grand Prix victory this season and third at this very track. Meantime, Marquez hunts for more points to dethrone his team mate Jorge Lorenzo for most points scored in a single season. Lorenzo holds the record with 383 points and Marquez so far has 375 points.

Lorenzo  has been on the podium seven times at Sepang, but this time around it’s going to be difficult for him to beat the likes of the factory and Satellite Yamahas and Ducatis. He’ll try, nonetheless.

Ducati riders Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci were in town to meet and greet the media at Shell KLIA station, a precursor event by Shell Malaysia. Dovizioso even presented awards to bike mechanics, who are representing their teams at the 2019 Shell Advance Global Masterclass Competition.

Ducati squad have five wins at Sepang in the past: Capirossi in 2005, Stoner in 2007 and 2009 and Dovizioso in 2016 and 2017. Sepang is also the track where Dovizioso obtained his first win with Ducati in the premier class in 2016.  Petrucci instead scored his best result in Malaysia on the Pramac Racing Team Desmosedici GP, when he finished in sixth place in 2015 and 2017. However, he might not be a 100 percent due to  a crash at Phillip Island which sprained his ankle. Regardless, Dovizioso holds second in the riders standings and Petrucci is fifth, just  7 points adrift of Maveritck Viñales and 14 from Suzuki’s Álex Rins in third.

Fan favorite Valentino Rossi isn’t doing too well this season, but fans here couldn’t care less. He practically has a legion of fans at Sepang. a circuit where he shone many times before. He was looking strong in the fight for the win last year when a crash cut his challenge short. Despite the 2018 mishap, the Doctor’s list of premier class successes in Sepang is impressive. He delighted the fans by snatching victories there in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010, he secured second places 2002, 2005, 2014, and 2016, and took third places in 2009 and 2015. This weekend he hopes to add another positive result to the list in order to move up from seventh place in the championship standings.

 Vinales is determined to fight at the front again this weekend. The Spaniard climbed onto the Malaysian podium on two occasions in previous years, securing a 125cc win in 2011 and first place in the Moto2 race in 2014. He is yet to claim a premier class MotoGP prize there. Last year he took fourth, his best premier class placement at this track thus far. Viñales currently holds fourth position in the overall rankings, seven points behind the rider in third position.

As usual. practice runs today, then the final practice and qualifying on Saturday. The 20-lap Malaysian GP is scheduled for 3p Local Time on Sunday.

How Ott Tanak defied all odds to snatch his first ever WRC title?

At the start of the 2019 WRC (World Rally Championship) season, nobody would have ever predicted that Ott Tanak would be the WRC Champion against the likes of top rally guys like multiple champion and very competent contenders; names like Sebastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala and Thierry Neuville.

In the second to last rally event of the year, the Rally Spain was the scene for the battle royale between Neuville and Tanak for the Drivers’ crown. Tanak has been consistent all season long, while Neuville, though pulled off several amazing performances, isn’t as persistent as his Estonian rival. Going into the penultimate round, Tanak had a 28-point lead over perennial WRC champion Ogier and a further 13 points laid JM Latvala. These men were the ones with a shot at the title. Ogier knows how to win as he has done it six times, but does the odds favor him this time around?

The other title, the manufacturer, is to be decided at the Rally Spain between Toyota and. Hyundai, who are just 8 points apart.

The stage was set for the Rally Spain last weekend and it began with 9-time champion Sebastien Loeb burning the tracks to lead all drivers. Loeb showed everybody who’s boss but it wouldn’t be his day, eventually. Loeb, representing Hyundai WRT, led Neuville and Dani Sordo to a 1-2-3 finish in the first leg. Tanak struggled to a fifth place finish behind Citroen’s Kris Meeke. Meantime, Ogier’s race was ruined by a leakage which caused a power steering failure. The 6-time WRC champion  had to send in the car for repairs, which put him 17th by the end of the first leg.  Heading into the second leg, the top five were Loeb, Neuville, Sordo, Meeke and Tanak.

Leg 2 saw plenty of action as Loeb faded into background. That gave Neuville an opportunity to jump into the lead early and the Belgian kept it until the end of the leg. He led home his team mate but Tanak made progress as well, going from fifth to third by the end of day two. Loeb ended his day two run in fourth, ahead of Latvala. Day three was about to unfold with either Tanak taking his first ever title or the title fight moving up to the finale in Australia.

Tanak commented after the second leg, “I wasn’t feeling too relaxed but now I’ve been able to learn a bit and get into a rhythm. We would like to keep the pressure, but to take the time back will be difficult.”

All eyes were set for day three where the battle royale would take place. Tanak needed a second place to seal his maiden title, would he get it? The Hyundai drivers won’t just hand him the title. Neuville was rather unstoppable since day two as he continued to pound the tarmac to increase his lead. The order maintained going into the bonus run or Power Stage.

The power stage was the key moment for Tanak as he swept past Sordo to go 2nd overall. He would finish 17.2 seconds behind Neuville which was enough to put his hands on the crown. Sordo was third, followed by Loeb and Latvala.

In post-rally a jubilant Tanak said, “It’s difficult to say the pressure I felt this weekend – it was next level. To manage all this and get through it has been the target of my life. When you are on the verge of this you cannot imagine it, I just had to make it happen.”

Tanak’s win ended the 15-year  Frenchmen’s domination of the WRC by Loeb and Ogier. He becomes the first Toyota driver to win a title since Didier Auriol in 1994, as well as the first Estonian with a World Rally crown.

Neuville’s third victory of the season came down to only the manufacturers’ title to play for, as Hyundai grabbed an 18-point lead from Toyota, going into the season finale at the Rally Australia 14 – 17 November.

As the forerunners in the Electric car business, Nissan preps up for its second Formula E season with the unveiling of the new -liveried Formula E racer.

Nissan’s 2019/20 liveried Formula E race car takes up red, black and white design, inspired by the Japanese kimono garment. This livery will also be featured on the Nissan LEAF NISMO RC, the dual electric-motor performance vehicle based on the Nissan LEAF electric car.

Aside from the livery, the 2019/20 e.dams racer features an updated powertrain, in line with new series regulations. The new powertrain replaces the previous dual electric-motor system.

Campaigning for the Nissan e.dams Formula E squad are drivers Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland. Both drivers are back behind the wheel for the Nissan e.dams team. The team entered the championship to showcase its zero-emission vehicle technologies, communicate the company’s Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision.

Nissan’s 2018/19 season

Highlights of season five (2018/19) included achieving second in championship, six podium finishes (including the last five races), six pole positions (the most for any team), and 16 Super Pole qualifying appearances combined by Buemi and Rowland, making Nissan e.dams the best qualifying team in the championship. The team ended the season with its first ever victory during the final race weekend in New York.

The Nissan e.dams team hit the track last week at a series pre-season test in Valencia, Spain. The team posted times in the top ten of every session throughout three days of testing. The team targets winning the overall title this season.

The sixth season of Formula E kicks off next month in Saudi Arabia. Fourteen races will be held in 12 cities, with the final double-header round taking place in London. New venues this season include Seoul, Jakarta, and the London circuit, which runs inside the Excel London exhibition center.

Marquez is Most Accomplished Honda rider after Japanese GP win

With the MotoGP Riders’ title already done and dusted, 2019 Champion Marc Marquez didn’t seem to be slowing down as he scored another win at the Twin Ring Motegi in Japan on Sunday to become the most successful Honda rider, alongside Mick Doohan. Marquez’s win enabled Honda to clinch the Constructors’ title as well.

From the start, Marquez proved he wasn’t letting anyone top him eventhough the title’s already in hand. He shot off the blocks into the lead from Yamaha SRT rider Fabio Quartararo and the rest of the field. In three laps, Marquez had a second’s lead from the satellite Yamaha rider.

By lap 13, the gap between the top two ballooned to two seconds and the reigning champion switched his attention to managing the race. Settling into second as the race progressed, Quartararo was able to manage his tyres to the chequered flag to secure the rookie honors.

Finishing a distant third was Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso. Dovizioso probably had the rider of the race honors as he fought his way back, having started from the third row. He got up to fifth after the first lap and passed Jack Miller and then Franco Morbidelli during the midpoint of the race. He held off attacks from Yamaha’s lead rider Maverick Viñales and locked on to the final podium on the final lap. He would finish just under five-tenths of a second behind the Yamaha SRT rider.

Marquez’s win was his tenth for the year and fourth in a row. Taking his 54th win in the premier class, Marquez draws level with Mick Doohan as the most successful premier class Honda rider. The 14 podiums, 13 of them in succession, of 2019 also move  Marquez to 350 championship points, just 33 points shy of Jorge Lorenzo’s all-time premier class points record of 383 with 75 points still to play for.

The MotoGP contingent now heads directly to round 17, the Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island from 25 – 27 October.

Bottas wins F1 Japanese GP; Mercedes nails Constructors title

The F1 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka saw Valtteri Bottas capture his sixth win lifetime to help Mercedes firm up the Constructors’ title. Team mate Lewis Hamilton was third, behind rival Sebastien Vettel.

Formel 1 – Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, Großer Preis von Japan 2019. Valtteri Bottas Lewis Hamilton Formula One – Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, Japanese GP 2019. Valtteri Bottas Lewis Hamilton

With 1 and 3, Hamilton and Bottas become the only two drivers in the standings with a shot at the drivers’ trophy.  Mercedes’ constructors title is the sixth consecutive title since the Silver Arrows made its entry in the sport as a factory team.  There are four races left in the season…

The start of the race was clear cut, it was Mercedes versus Ferrari off the grid. Vettel hesitated at the start and that allowed Bottas to shoot ahead. Meantime, Charles LeClerc got a wheelspin and was picked off by Max Verstappen. He tried to block the Red Bull but unsuccessful.

It was Bottas, followed by Vettel, Leclerc, Verstappen and Hamilton on the first lap.  The Mercedes drivers and Vettel went for a two-stopper. After his first stop, he resumed the attack on the lead Mercedes on lap 17.  Bottas managed to come out ahead of Vettel after his stop. Hamilton would pit later and retook the race third.

The order would change slightly after the second stop, Hamilton led -Vettel and Bottas, after Bottas dove in the pitlane. Hamilton would go in lap 42 and  attacked the minute he rejoined the track, but Vettel covered well. Past mid-part of the race, Bottas led the race with Vettel and Hamilton. Six laps from the end, Hamilton made a final push for runner-up spot but Vettel wouldn’t have it. Alex Albon finished fourth for Red Bull from Carlos Sainz, Behind Sainz, everybody finished a lap down on the leaders. LeClerc was demoted from sixth to seventh after a post race review, as he was penalized for blocking Verstappen at the start. Verstappen, meanwhile, didn’t finish the race.

Reigning Formula E Champions DS Techeetah shows off new livery for 2019/20 season

With the new Formula E season just around the corner, DS Techeetah Team has unveiled their 2019/20 car livery in black and gold. The black/gold liveried DS E-Tense FE20 car is out to defend the titles from last season with Formula E champion Jean-Eric Vergne.  The season kicks off on 22 November in Saudi Arabia.

Techeetach team, owned by SECA Shanghai, is a Chinese racing team in Formula E. They won the 2017/2018 drivers’ title with Jean-Éric and together with André Lotterer, the team secured second place in the teams’ rankings in the 2017/2018 season.

DS E-Tense FE20

Jean-Eric’s car will bear two laurel wreaths to symbolize the two titles, while his helmet has two stars (driver titles).

The DS E-Tense FE20 livery is created by the DS Design Studio of DS Automobiles, From a technical point of view, the FE20 is the fruit of the development work based on the qualities of the double championship winning DS E-Tense FE19.

DS Performance Director Xavier Mestelan Pinon said, “Our engineers have optimised most of the elements by further developing our winning concept rather than completely rethinking the car. The engine, the inverter and the transfer case have evolved, but the deeper changes are in the heart of the embedded systems. All this ambitious research and development work aims to offer the drivers a car that allows them to fight to win and defend both titles.”

“In the detail of its livery design, it is possible to see that the pattern is constructed from many of our cheetah head logos, which also nods to our continued efforts in supporting The Big Cat Sanctuary’s fight in saving the cheetahs and other big cats. A topic that is more pressing than ever and a cause that is especially close to our hearts,” DS Techeetah Chief Commercial Officer Keith Smout added.

The excitement of the Formula E begins third week of November at the Riyadh Circuit.

Marquez captures 8th title with emphatic Win at Buriram

The second ever Thai Grand Prix at the Buriram track saw Reigning Champion Marc Marquez pull a last lap stunner to score the win and capture the Riders’ title for the 8th time. Championship rival Ducati’s front man Andrea Dovizioso only managed fourth, which means the title goes to Marquez with four races left to run.

At the start, Marquez stayed close to the pole sitter Fabio Quartararo. Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales was also in the mix early in the race. It would soon be Quartararo and Marquez going one-on-one with the Yamaha rider for the win, from the mid-distance onwards. Everyone else settled in their rhythm.

The final laps were explosive as the 2019 MotoGP Champion launched an all out assault on the young Satellite Yamaha  rider, moving ahead as the last lap began. But it would go down to the final corner, Marquez expertly defending from Quartararo in the last corner to take the win and ultimately, the title. With 325 points, nine wins, 14 podiums, nine poles and 10 fastest laps, Marquez is the undisputed King in the Premier class; his sixth title with Repsol Honda and 8th overall. The victory is also Honda’s 150th in the MotoGP class, an achievement no other manufacturer has been able to match.

Vinales took third to salvage some decent points for the factory Yamaha, while Dovizioso could not make an impression and settle for fourth till race end. Alex Rins was the best Suzuki finisher in fifth, followed by Franco Morbidelli and Joan Mir.

Big names on the grid Valentino Rossi finished eighth, ahead of Ducati’s Danilo Petrucci and Japanese rider T. Nakagami.

The next Grand Prix moves to Japan from 18 – 20 October.  The remaining races  on the calendar include Australia, Malaysia and Valencia.
