EPISODE 7 – LOVECARS ON THE GRID – BUSCH WINS THE BUSCHY McBUSH 400!
Welcome to Episode 7 of the “Lovecars On the Grid” podcast, the global motorsport roundup!
This week we look back at 3 World Championship events from the weekend and look forward to two more next weekend! Plus the long awaited return of the series we all love for its non-stop action – the BTCC (British Touring cars).
Some great racing from the Portuguese Grand Prix – which saw another tense Mercedes / Red Bull battle but without the real drama of the opening two races as Mercedes look like they are taking the upper hand once again.
Lewis Hamilton provides a masterclass, Max lost his pole and fastest lap to track limits, Botas seemed to give up the ghost and Lando Norris once again best of the rest, but did his pass Perez illegally? Alpine had a great weekend with 7th and 8th with some fantastic driving from Alonso. Russell sadly faded backwards and one of the highlights of the race was Schumacher overtaking Latifi!
There was no F2 or F3 support but Euroformula Open, where all three races were won by American Cameron Daz – so one to watch for the future. Best Brit was Lous Foster with a couple of second places.
WEC kicked off with 6 hours of Spa, with some new regulations, and a fimiliaur field but only two Toyotas and one Alpine. Porsche and Ferrari will be back, in total there were 14 LMP2s, 5 GTE Pros, and 11 ProAms.
Moto GP was brilliant again, and that man (young man!) Pedro Acosta once again brought home the gravy! Fantastic also for Jack Miller – congrats to him.
Over in the USA plenty of full on action from Indycar and NASCAR with Kyle Busch winning the Buschy McBusch 400!
Britain’s Jack Harvey continues to impress 7th. Texas Speedway, Dixon wins first, big crash at start of second, and a debut win for 21 year old Pato O’Ward – who’s been promised an F1 test by Zak Brown off the back of it!
Meanwhile back in little old England Tiff had 3 retirements at the Donington Historic race!
Next weekend F1 in Barcelona with F3 support with a couple of Brits to look out for. Plus Formula E on full Monaco – and BTCC at Thruxton!!
