Alvaro Parente
Alvaro Parente
Pole winner Alvaro Parente left little doubt about his performance Saturday at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course with a dominating win in the Pirelli World Challenge GT Sprint Round 6 event, the PWC Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio presented by Honda Racing, in his No. 9 K-PAX Racing McLaren 650S. 

Parente, a winner last year in his debut at Mid-Ohio, repeated the 2016 showing with a 6.857-second victory over Cadillac’s Michael Cooper and Johnny O’Connell in a 36-lap wire-to-wire win, his third in 2017 in the GT Sprint division.

Indy Lights: Urrutia wins Mid-Ohio Race #1
Urrutia starts from pole and is never headed
Urrutia starts from pole and is never headed
Santi Urrutia has clearly developed an affinity for the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The Uruguayan today secured a hard-earned victory in the Cooper Tires Indy Lights Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio Powered by Mazda – his fourth in just five starts at the challenging 2.258-mile road course – and his first of the season for Belardi Auto Racing.

Second-generation Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires competitor Colton Herta finished a close second for Andretti-Steinbrenner Racing, with Andretti Autosport teammate Nico Jamin in third.

From left, Latifi, Rowland and De Vries
Oliver Rowland has brought home exactly the result he was looking for after emerging on top of a chaotic FIA Formula 2 feature race at the Hungaroring, holding on from pole despite losing the lead early on and surviving a late attack from Artem Markelov to claim victory ahead of DAMS teammate Nicholas Latifi and Nyck De Vries. 

Anyone who was expecting a quiet race around the tight, technical circuit was soon proven wrong: track temperatures of 52˚ were soon matched by the heat of battle on it when Rowland made a good start but Markelov made a better one, with the Russian leading the Briton with his countryman Jordan King and Latifi into turn 1, while further back championship leader Charles Leclerc was up to P12 from the back and looking for more on the alternate tire strategy.

Franzoni wins Pro Mazda Race #2
Franzoni pressures Martin
Franzoni pressures Martin

Round Eight (out of 12) of the hotly contested Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires once again boiled down to a tense battle between Victor Franzoni (Juncos Racing) and Anthony Martin (Cape Motorsports). Just as was the case yesterday, the Brazilian and the Australian were never separated by more than a few car lengths. Only this time, after taking his fourth pole of the season and holding a narrow advantage for the majority of the 35-minute Pro Mazda Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio Presented by Allied Building Products, Martin was unfortunate enough to run afoul of a lapped car with just a few minutes to go, gifting an opportunity for Franzoni to sneak past and secure his fourth win of the season.

Daniil Kvyat penalized

Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat has been handed a three-place grid drop by the stewards in Hungary for impeding Williams’ Lance Stroll during the Q1 segment of qualifying.

Kvyat originally qualified P13, four places ahead of Stroll, but will now start just one place ahead of the Canadian in 16th having been adjudged to have 'unnecessarily impeded' the Williams at Turn 11.

“The Stewards determined that Kvyat was on an exceptionally slow lap having spun earlier and damaged his tires,” read an official statement.

Morning update from Mid-Ohio
Mikhail Aleshin with more crash damage
Mikhail Aleshin with more crash damage

This is going to be a real quick update. But its a cool, breezy morning here at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The forecast is for sunshine and clear skies pretty much for the remainder of the weekend.

We dug a little more into the reason Mikhail Aleshin was put down for the recent Toronto race in favor of Sebastian Saavedra. For one, there was a business issue of some kind between Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and Aleshin's backers. Second, the team was plain tired of repairing Aleshin's damaged cars, and thought that a reset would do the Russian driver some good.

NASCAR needs to stop racing twice at every track

Why does NASCAR race twice a year at most tracks? So the rich Smiths and Frances can line their pockets with more millions from the TV money

We’re headed back to Pocono. And yes, we were just there a few weeks ago.

This continues to be NASCAR’s strangest scheduling quirk. It makes no sense at all that there are still two races at Pocono to begin with, much less seven weeks apart. Do people just camp there and build their summer around the triangle?
