Several local stars have dominated the Rolex 24 at Daytona ahead of this weekend’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, with Supercars ace Chaz Mostert claiming a maiden Daytona crown.

The 2014 Bathurst 1000 winner played an integral role in helping the No. 24 BMW Team RLL M8 GTE towards GTLM honours, with countryman Ryan Briscoe winning outright for Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac DPi.

IndyCar veteran Scott Dixon, who will suit up alongside Rick Kelly at Mount Panorama for the first time this weekend, joined Briscoe, Kamui Kobayashi and Renger van der Zande to take top honours in the around-the-clock marathon.

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

Published

on

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.

Published

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.
