LOVECARS ON THE GRID PODCAST. BRANDS HATCH TRAGEDY, AMAZING FORMULA 1 IN HUNGARY AND MORE! EP20
Welcome to Episode 20 of the Lovecars On the Grid Podcast, the global motorsport roundup, where we have a jam packed week of motorsport! Sadly, we start with a tragedy at Brands Hatch.
A member of the Orange Army, the marshall team at Brands Hatch sadly lost their life this weekend. Our thoughts go out to their family and friends. We couldn’t go racing without the Orange Army, many of whom are volunteers and the loss of one of them is real loss.
Onto Formula 1, we had an action packed Grand Prix in Hungary, with a crash from Valtteri Bottas, with a win for young driver Estaban Ocon with Alpine, a second place disqualification for Sebastian Vettel, and Lewis Hamilton making a recovery from last place! What did you think of Fernando Alonso’s defending of Lewis Hamilton?
Supporting the F1 in Hungary was both Formula 3 and W Series, with some spectacular supporting races! Following the sprint races in Formula 3, Norwegian driver, Dennis Hauger took the win. In W Series, it was another great show for British drivers, with Jamie Chadwick and Alice Powell taking 1st and 2nd place at the Hungaroring.
We also had the 24 hour race at Spa with the GT racing! With a real mix of weather and some horrendous crashes, and fantastic speeds over Eau Rouge! An exciting end to the race with the Ferrari overtaking the Audi and winning!
The BTCC was back in the UK! This weekend was at Oulton Park, with lots of crashes from the Minis, touring cars and Ginetta Juniors and some great wheel to wheel racing! Elsewhere at Thruxton, we had the Superbikes with a very close race!
Tiff was also racing at the Silverstone Classic this weekend, with five races but no wins! 5th overall and a very good results considering the weather and still managed to do some presenting too!
Coming up next week, we have a 3 week gap for the Formula 1, but still lots going on, with the Styrian Moto GP and World Superbikes, along with Indycar and NASCAR over the pond!
