Mario Andretti's F5000 Lola wins again
  At Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
It was significant that Zak Brown's Lola T332, in the hands of Richard Dean, won Sunday's Formula 5000 race at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion: when the last professional Formula 5000 race was held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca 40 years ago (October 12, 1975), it was won by Mario Andretti in the same car. Snapshots into the past are at the heart of vintage automobile racing, and the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion managed to reel off plenty of those over four competition days - two devoted to practice sessions followed by the August 15-16 weekend of Rolex races - for 15 groups of cars representing nearly a century of motorsports history.

  by Steven Cole Smith

Motorsports as a driver of new technologies
  IInterview with Porsche’s Head of Motorsport Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser
Before the next round of the Tudor United SportsCar Championship on Sunday: Interview with Porsche’s Head of Motorsport Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser on Motorsports as a driver of new technologies. The key argument is that technology takes driver skill out of the equation and motorsports no longer can be categorized as a sport, but an engineering exercise.
