Re: (Other) Motorsports


Among other events this weekend there was 5th Formula E race in Miami.
Nicholas Prost (son of the four-time F1 champion) won and took lead in points, but Lucas di Grassi, Sam Bird, Nelson Piquet and Sébastien Buemi are behind him within one race points and the season is only halfway.


On local news, Finland's new track (apparently to be called Kymi Ring) has preliminary contract for Moto GP (plus Moto2 and Moto3) for five years starting 2017.
We could be having world's top motorcycle series here and as I've mentioned, it's close to where my aunt lives...

Nelson Piquet Jr. won his first Formula E race at Long Beach, where his father won his first F1 GP 35 years ago.
This puts Piquet one point behind fellow Brazilian Lucas di Grassi, current leader. Third is Nicolas Prost, another son of a multiple F1 champion.

There's 4/5 races left in FE; last GP in London has two races.

Nelson Piquet Jr. is the first Formula E champion, winning Sébastien Buemi on one point!
(FE has same scoring as F1, except with 3 extra points for pole and 2 for fastest lap.)


SMP F4 series goes to summer break with Finns Niko Kari and Aleksanteri Huovinen on clear first two places - but there's still half season left.

Rally Finland was a great success for Finns - for change - with J-M Latvala winning and other Finns (not driving full season) were 6th and 8th.

It's been a while since last three Finns were on points in a rally.

Sébastien Ogier has won Australian Rally and confirmed his third world championship.

French drivers have now won World Rally Championship series 12 years in row!

WRC driver's championship has been competed since 1977 and the score between countries is now: Finland 14 - France 13 - rest of the world 12

French driver Johann Zarco of Finnish Ajo Motorsport team has confirmed Moto2 series championship.

That'll probably be the best motorsport news for Finland this year...
(aside Räikkönen still driving at Ferrari 2016)

Team Trulli (by the former F1 driver) is forced to retire from Formula E. It will be replaced next season (or possibly already during this) by Jaguar.

Bad beginning for rally year. Ogier wins Monte Carlo, only top level Finn J-M. Latvala retires.
Best Finn was E. Lappi who was 9th in total, 2nd in WRC2 class.

First real good new of the WRC season as Latvala wins Mexico Rally.
But after technical problems left him to zero at MC and Sweden, that only puts him 6th at the moment, far far behind Ogier.
