Michelin has renewed its partnership as Official Tire Supplier of the FIA Formula E Championship, continuing to provide innovative high-performance all-weather tires as part of a multi-year agreement until the end of 2021.

As one of the founding partners and the first partner to join the electric street racing series, Michelin has supplied tires to the teams and competitors since the inaugural season in 2014. Michelin was tasked with creating bespoke treaded tires unique to the world of motorsport - for use in both wet and dry conditions and using 18-inch rims. The partnership will continue through to at least the end of the 2020/21 season, with Michelin already working on tires for the new-look next generation car, which will make its debut in season five.

Jim Nabors. Nabors is survived by his husband, Stan Cadwallader

Actor-entertainer Jim Nabors, one of the most beloved figures in Indianapolis 500 history for his stirring pre-race rendition of "Back Home Again in Indiana," passed away Thursday, Nov. 30 at his home in Hawaii. He was 87.

Nabors sang the iconic tune 36 times between 1972 and 2014 during pre-race ceremonies for the Indianapolis 500. Although born in Alabama, Nabors was considered a true Hoosier due to his performances at the "500" but even more so because of his warmth, grace and generosity, and his very close relationship with the Hulman-George family, owners of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

UPDATE Here is a little factoid for you. VeeKay's official name is Rinus Van Kalmthout. His parents and his management, think Americans are stupid and won't be able to pronounce his name, and therefore Rinus would not stand a chance to make it in the USA using his real name. Fellow Dutchman Arie Luijendijk became Arie Luyendyk ... that makes sense as it's close to his real name, but Rinus VeeKay?  VeeKay = Vee is from the V of Van, and Kay is the K of Kalmthout ... and now you know the whole story.

Tesla Model 3 has a range of 310 miles, EPA confirms
The Tesla’s Model 3 can go 310 miles on a charge and use the plethora of Tesla Superchargers across the country when you are traveling long distances. If not you charge at home at night.
The Tesla’s Model 3 can go 310 miles on a charge and use the plethora of Tesla Superchargers across the country when you are traveling long distances. When not you charge at home at night.

Tesla’s Model 3, the most important car to come out in decades, has a confirmed range of 310 miles, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. That figure applies to the long-range version of the Model 3, and echoes the vehicle specs released by Tesla back in July. It also makes the Model 3 one of the most efficient passenger electric vehicles on the market. 

The EPA’s range is used as the advertised figure for electric vehicles that are sold in the US. The 310-mile range is an estimate of the number of miles the vehicle should be able to travel in combined city and highway driving from a full charge. That’s 131 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPGe) for city driving, 120 MPGe on the highway, and 126 MPGe combined.

Electric Cars Are About to Get a Lot Faster and Go a Lot Further on a Charge
GKN eTwinsterX Transmission
GKN eTwinsterX Transmission
One of the biggest gripes about electric cars from many die-hard auto enthusiasts, aside from not having a manual transmission, is that EVs lose all oomph at higher speeds. While this is true, there's a very easy way to explain reason behind it: The lack of a transmission. Over the past two years, more original equipment manufacturers are dabbling in the world of transmissions for electrified cars, and it's going to change the very way many of us view EVs.

Mario Isola, Head of Car Racing – “We completed a record-breaking 2017 season, featuring 25% wider tires and some of the fastest lap times ever seen, with two intense days of work at Abu Dhabi, during which the teams sampled the 2018 tires for the first time.

Each team had 20 sets for the test: 12 sets chosen by Pirelli (with a selection of 2018 tires plus some 2017 tires for comparison) and the other eight selected by the teams themselves. In total, 23 different top drivers did some long runs as well, so not in qualifying conditions. The characteristics of the Yas Marina circuit meant the test concentrated on the compounds from White medium to the Pink hypersoft. The whole test and all the drivers gave us very positive feedback.
