Schumacher Primed For Arizona

 February 19, 2018 --  After a year that did not meet the high expectations for eight-time Top Fuel world champion Tony Schumacher, the veteran knew there needed to be some changes. After an off-season that included a significant one, Schumacher, who finished eighth in the Top Fuel standings a year ago, appears to be quickly back in championship form. The 83-time event winner was the runner-up at the 2018 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season opener in Pomona, a strong start after Mike Neff was named the new crew chief over the winter. Heading into this weekend’s 34th annual NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, where Schumacher is a five-time winner in his 10,000-horsepower U.S. Army dragster, the longtime talent is already impressed with what Neff brings to the team. “He’s an awesome dude, (and) he’s really hands on with the guys on this U.S. Army [...]

Frikadelli Announces Nurburgring Lineup

, 13.2.2018. Frikadelli Racing's driver line-up for the season opener of the Endurance Championship Nürburgring (VLN) and for the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring is becoming more and more concrete. Following the engagement of Lance David Arnold (31, Duisburg) another driver has now been appointed: Felipe Laser is moving to the Porsche 911 GT3 R of the popular Eifel team. The 29-year-old from Leipzig, who has completed his engineering studies, has made a name for himself in recent years at the Nürburgring especially at the wheel of the Glickenhaus SCG 003. In 2017 he reached the provisional pole position in the first qualifying session for the 24-hour qualifying race with the spectacular prototype. Laser seems to be a specialist for exotic racing cars in general: In 2017, he also competed with the spectacular Renault RS01 on the Nordschleife. In addition, he also raced for Schuberth-BMW and Manthey Racing. However, the [...]

The world-class historic race weekend returns to Road Atlanta April 26 - 29, and the event's grand marshal is a racer who is closely tied to both Nissan and Datsun: John Morton. After a 40-plus-year career, Morton is best remembered for the 1970 - 1972 seasons. During that time period he drove a Datsun 510 to a pair of SCCA 2.5 Trans-Am titles while also claiming two SCCA C Production championships in the brand's 240Z. Both cars were campaigned by Brock Racing Enterprises and wore the team's iconic red, white and blue colors, including those now legendary diagonal door stripes. Some 15 years later, Morton was also a key team member of Nissan's IMSA-dominating GTP ZX-Turbo program. A member of multiple motorsports hall of fames, Morton is [...]

Still buzzing from his one-two win for Techeetah with teammate Andre Lotterer - both visibly ecstatic - the twosome made history in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship as they crossed the finish line one after the other on Santiago's avenue Santa Maria. "The brain is working overtime," said Lotterer, still coming to terms with not just his first podium but also his first points since joining the all-electric series ahead of Season Four. "Some people say these cars are not that quick but believe me, when you're driving in between these concrete walls, it feels just as quick as Le Mans, or anything I've ever driven," he added.
