Excerpt from The Human Weeds' book; ©️ 2019

What will be the protracted aftermath if our families, schools, health centres, religious bodies, government departments and all other national and international institutions, privately or publicly owned are being manned or occupied by 'human weeds'?

We cannot end up having anything good or better than only WEAK, LAZY, UNPRODUCTIVE, FRUSTRATED, CRIMINAL and CORRUPT MINDS.

IMSA Launches Diverse Driver Development Scholarship Program

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) today unveiled the new IMSA Diverse Driver Development annual scholarship program worth more than a quarter million dollars each year to promote and empower drivers from a variety of backgrounds to participate in IMSA-sanctioned series.

The IMSA Diverse Driver Development Scholarship includes tools to bring drivers into IMSA and position them for holistic success both on and off the racetrack through substantial assistance from the sanctioning body and several IMSA corporate partners, as well as other industry resources. A new scholarship will be awarded each year, with additional benefits extending to a second year for each selected recipient.

“While there are examples of male and female drivers from diverse backgrounds that have won IMSA races and competed for championships over the years, we must strive for much more diversity and inclusion in our sport,” said IMSA President John Doonan. “The IMSA Diverse Driver Development Scholarship will facilitate the introduction and growth of new drivers who may currently believe that IMSA is out of their reach.

“This multi-dimensional scholarship will assist financially and also work with drivers to provide a strong foundation for success both on and off the racetrack. Our goal is to create more opportunities to compete and achieve sustainable success in IMSA.”

To be eligible for the scholarship, candidates from diverse lifestyles or backgrounds must have a strong desire to compete in IMSA, outstanding previous race results and/or proven on-track potential in junior racing categories, and the ability to build a compelling business plan for securing the remaining funding needed to compete in a full season of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge or IMSA Prototype Challenge series.

The IMSA Diverse Driver Development Scholarship provides the recipient with upwards of $290,000 in financial and product support in the first year, depending on the driver’s chosen series. First-year support for the recipient includes the following:

• One full-season premium entry into the WeatherTech Championship, Michelin Pilot Challenge or IMSA Prototype Challenge, worth anywhere from $110,000 to $235,000.
• One set of Michelin race tires per event in chosen race series.
• Two drums of VP Racing Fuel per event in chosen race series.
• One OMP custom racing suit.
• One RECARO racing seat.
• One set of promotional headshots provided by LAT Photo USA.

In the second year of the IMSA Diverse Driver Development Scholarship, IMSA will offer the recipient 50 percent off a full-season premium entry fee toward participation in the WeatherTech Championship, Michelin Pilot Challenge or IMSA Prototype Challenge. In addition, Michelin will provide the recipient with one set of Michelin race tires per event in their chosen race series for the second year.

Additional details on the application process for the 2022 IMSA Diverse Driver Development Scholarship are available at imsa.com/diversity.

Say hello to the #Brabham BT63 GT2 Concept

Brabham Automotive is delighted to announce its intent to compete in the invitational class of the SRO Motorsports 2022 Fanatec GT2 European Series with the new Brabham BT63 GT2 Concept.

The Brabham BT63 GT2 Concept will be designed and engineered by the same team that designed and delivered the BT62R, the road variant of the BT62, using the same platform and incorporating a wing, diffuser and splitter modelled on that car.

The BT63 GT2 Concept will produce around 600HP and will weigh between 1250kg and 1300kg.

Once homologated, Brabham will join the four existing manufacturers currently competing in the new-for-2021 category, with the likes of Audi, KTM, Lamborghini and Porsche already enjoying success in the series' inaugural season.

This adds to the existing product range of Brabham Automotive, the BT62 and the road variant of that car, the BT62R. Exciting times for Brabham Automotive and our Partners.

For more information email [email protected] OR [email protected]@

This year we have extended our relationship with Virtuosi Racing where alumni Alex Thew and Colin Summerville work. The Norfolk based team is supporting thesis projects and placements.

Since leaving Cranfield University last September, Alex Thew has gone onto work for UNI-Virtuosi Racing as a Data and Systems Engineer, competing in the FIA F2 championship. Alex Thew was awarded the BRDC prize by John Grant, Chairman of the BRDC. This was in recognition of Alex’s contributions to Cranfield University’s MSc Advanced Motorsport Engineering. Alex represented the student body, acted as ‘Cranfield Student Motorsport Ambassador’, liaising with the motorsport sector and co-organising Cranfield Motorsport MSc students support to the BRDC across the British F1 GP 2019. The BRDC trophy is a model of the 6 wheel Tyrrell P34.

Honda's response to 'suspicion' about its F1 engine 13/07/2021

Honda's response to 'suspicion' about its F1 engine

No case to answer. Red Bull Racingl has a very good aerodynamic package and as the season has progressed it is optimising the powertrain developed pre-season by Honda Racing F1. The 2021 engine is a significant departure from its previous powertrain and its potential is being realised. Combined with the aero and with Max Verstappen at the wheel, the 2021 Red Bull is a very effective race car. If was all down to the Honda powertrain receiving developments outlawed for 2021, why is the Mercedes-AMG-HPP powered McLaren the quickest in a straight-line? And because the Red Bull package is so good, the Milton Keynes based team delivers better tyre management over a full race compared to the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. However, the Boys and Girls at Brackley and Brixworth will see the #BritishGP at Silverstone as the ideal opportunity to fight back on track rather than in the media. And there is the first #F1 sprint race.

Honda's response to 'suspicion' about its F1 engine Red Bull’s F1 winning streak has been met with speculation that Honda’s second engine of the season has somehow contributed to its upturn in pace relative to...
