LOVECARS ON THE GRID PODCAST. CATERHAM CONTROVERSY, F1 PENALTIES AND MORE! EP16
Welcome to Episode 16 of Lovecars On The Grid podcast, the global motorsport roundup, where this week we cover the Caterham Academy round at Silverstone, World Superbikes, Indycar and much more!
This weekend, the Caterham Academy was at the home of British Formula 1, Silverstone! Another controversy with our own Paul Woodman, following using dry tyres for the qualifying, the Lovecars car qualified 19th, then having got up to 4th place, was he innocently taken out in the race? Full video to come soon!
At the Austrian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen is starting to run away from Lewis Hamilton in the points, but it’s still Red Bull vs. Mercedes! Who will walk away with the Championship this year? Lando Norris and Sergio Perez receive penalties, but were they right to be given?
Did you know a Formula car is as long and as wide as a Rolls Royce Phantom?!
In the W Series, British racing driver Jamie Chadwick took the podium having dominated the race, with British drivers taking all three podium places.
In Formula 3, Tiff seems to prefer the feature race as opposed to the sprint race!
No MotoGP this week, but the Superbikes were at Donington Park! The usual British domination of Superbikes that we’re used to over the years is now under attack from Turkish rider, Toprak Razgatlioglu, who beat Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes to 1st place.
This week, Indycar was at mid-Ohio, one of the few tracks with very few overtakes.
Unfortunately no joy for the two British drivers during this race, but Josef Newgarden finally got a well deserved win!
NASCAR were at road America, for the first time in many years. Overtakes were few, but plenty of action nonetheless, with team mates colliding and an interesting reversing manoeuvre from Kyle Bush.
Next week, we have no Formula 1 or MotoGP sadly. The only European race we can see is the British GT at Donington Park. Most of the action is in America, with NASCAR in Atlanta. Indycar is heading to the streets of Toronto and Formula E is in New York!
