EPISODE 6 – LOVECARS ON THE GRID – WRC / NASCAR / INDYCAR AND FORMULA E MADNESS!
Welcome to Episode 6 of the Lovecars On the Grid, the global motorsport roundup podcast!
No F1 to discuss, but an action packed weekend from the world of motorsport events, including the third round of the World Rally Championship in Croatia which saw another last stage heartbreak for Elfyn Evans – and, as in Italy last year, Sebastien Ogier was the man who benefited from Elfyn’s error …
A couple of Brits also won the Junior WRC even – congratulations to Jon Armstrong and Phil Hall.
The other big event in Europe was Rounds 5 & 6 of the Formula E Championship from Valencia – but not the streets of Valencia – and it turned out to be another rather ‘interesting’ weekend… starting off with a rather embarrassing race ending on Saturday as Brit Jake Dennis led from start to finish – another driver who could well have ended up an F1 star – on Sunday.
For the rest of last week’s action, we go to Indycar and NASCAR … with a brilliant 4th place from Jack Harvey with the Talladega madness!
Next weekend F1 returns to the magnificent Algarve circuit for the Portuguese Grand Prix and hopefully another Max v Lewis classic, as MotoGP heads to Jerez in Spain.
Indycar makes it three rounds on the trot with a visit to Texas for the first oval race of the season, while the brave new world of the Hypercar World Endurance Championship kicks off at Spa but sadly only two Toyotas and one Alpine are ready for it – but the future still looks very promising with the return of Porsche and Ferrari over the next couple of years.
