WRC 2020: Ott Tanak crash video, 2020 Monte Carlo Rally, WRC crash

Published

on

World champion Ott Tanak crashed out of the Monte Carlo Rally on Friday when he flew off the road on a mountainside in the Alps in the fourth stage.

The Estonian and his co-driver and compatriot Martin Jarveoja escaped unharmed but their Hyundai was badly damaged.

Tanak went off the road at high speed. The car’s nose dipped and hit the ground bouncing the vehicle into the air. It spun through a tree before landing on the mountain side. The two Estonians quickly climbed out of the car unscathed.

Supercars 2020: Scott McLaughlin sim racing, IndyCar iRacing Challenge, Supercars Eseries

Published

Taking victory in an IndyCar iRacing Challenge race only enhanced Scott McLaughlin’s standing among his peers, but the race itself required the Supercars champion to take an unconventional route to victory.

That meant setting an alarm barely a snooze after midnight in the wee hours of Sunday morning, before logging on at 4:00am ahead of the day’s action.

While his North American rivals cozied up in the mid afternoon Stateside, Brisbane-based McLaughlin was perhaps the only person awake in his suburb.

Formula 1 news 2020: Williams, Racing Point, F1 furlough staff, coronavirus sport updates

Published

on

Williams and Racing Point became the latest Formula 1 teams to furlough staff due to the coronavirus as their drivers also agreed to take pay cuts on Monday.

Formula 1’s 2020 season has been delayed because of the pandemic and Williams and Racing Point announced their cost-cutting moves a week after McLaren opted to take the same financial measures.

Canadian Nicholas Latifi and Briton George Russell, along with senior Williams executives, have taken a 20 percent pay cut from April 1, with the other staff put on an enforced leave until the end of May.

McLaren drivers Carlos Sainz Jr and Lando Norris took voluntary pay cuts last week.

MotoGP 2020: MotoGP news, coronavirus sport updates, MotoGP 2020 calendar

Published

on

In any ordinary year, the MotoGP season would be four races old – but these aren’t ordinary times.

As the early days of April amble away, we are yet to see a wheel turn in anger and it’s anyone’s guess when we will.

To date, six races have been rescheduled or postponed.

The world championship is in a world of hurt.

70 per cent of MotoGP riders are either Italian or Spanish – that figure swells if you include crew – but these age old rivals are now joined in a battle not against each other but against an enemy they cannot see, let alone control.
