MotoGP renews with Assen for 10 years
Assen
Assen
The proud and long relationship between the TT Circuit Assen and the MotoGP World Championship will continue for ten more years.

Assen has been a part of the World Championship since it came into existence in 1949, the only circuit to have been a part of the series during each of its 68 years. The original circuit was used until 1954 and measured 16.54km, reduced to 7.7km in 1955 and then to 6.1km in 1984. 2006 saw the historic track become the circuit it is in 2016, 4.5km of history and high-speed action.

Veach leads from the start
Veach leads from the start

Zach Veach has developed quite an affinity for the state of Wisconsin. Almost two years on from his most recent race win – at the historic Milwaukee Mile oval – the 21-year-old from Stockdale, Ohio, bounced back to prominence today at Elkhart Lake’s equally renowned Road America circuit by scoring an emphatic victory in the Mazda Indy Lights Grand Prix of Road America Presented by Cooper Tires.

Veach qualified his Belardi Auto Racing Dallara-Mazda IL-15 squarely on the pole, then led from flag to flag in the 40-minute, 20-lap race around the challenging 4.048-mile road course. England’s Dean Stoneman, driving for Andretti Autosport, and Carlin’s Felix Serralles, from Ponce, Puerto Rico, rounded out the podium.

Victory and points' lead for Mortara
The start of Race 1
The start of Race 1

Edoardo Mortara is the winner of the seventh race of the DTM season. After 49 laps of the Norisring in Nuremberg on Saturday, the Audi driver crossed the finish line as the winner and thus put an end to the winning streak of Mercedes-AMG that continued since 2003. Jamie Green completed the success for Audi in the brand’s home round by finishing second, 0.531 seconds down on his fellow Audi driver. “Finally scoring that first win for Audi here after so many years is a great feeling,” winner Mortara commented after the race. “In the last few races, I have made some mistakes, but today, I was taking it more easily. I didn’t have the fastest car, but I managed to keep Jamie behind me until the end.”

Dovizioso delivers Ducati pole at Assen
Andrea Dovizioso will start from pole position as his teammate, Andrea Iannone, is scheduled to start from last but the weather means anything could happen.

Both FP4 and Q1 had been littered with falls, riders approaching Q2 with a healthy amount of caution during their first laps. The rain had eased but the track was clearly still too wet for slick tires, resulting in the first wet Qualifying session of the new Michelin era.

Video: Microsoft and NASCAR announcement
NASCAR and Microsoft for today’s Sprint Cup Series Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway are debuting a new competition-focused app that will streamline the sanctioning body’s race management system. The Race Management App, which is not consumer-facing to start and leverages Microsoft’s Windows 10 and Azure platforms, brings together six different aspects of NASCAR’s current race management system that previously were on different screens onto one app. Examples include pit-road officiating, weather tracking, timing/scoring and video replay. The app, which also will allow NASCAR to send teams video replays of pit-road penalties in a faster fashion, marks the next step in the sanctioning body’s quest to better manage the logistics around racing.

Video: 8 Meters: Triumph, Tragedy and a Photo Finish at Le Mans
This is a video you don't want to miss! In a war fought by titans of industry – one from Michigan, the other from Maranello – on the roads of rural France, the battle for sports car supremacy came to a head in 1966 when three of Ford Motor Company’s GT40s beat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the closest endurance racing finish of all time. Exactly half a century later, “8 Meters,” a new documentary produced by Kahn Media, explores what really happened on those final, fateful laps.
