2017 IMSA Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda Prepares for Series Debut at Barber Motorsports Park


It's impossible to handicap the pair of IMSA Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda races that will take place at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala. April 21-22. The series has never competed at Barber, but given how nimble and quick these cars are, and how the complex 2.38-mile road course rewards those two characteristics, this series and this track are made for each other.

There's another reason that the races will be a wild card at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama - one of the two classes that make up the Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda field is brand new for 2017, not only to the series, but to competition in the United States. The LM P3 class originated in Europe and is spreading around the world, and these races at Barber are only the second time the class has competed in North America.

Aston Martin Racing Claims Podium At 6 Hours Of Silverstone


Aston Martin Racing has claimed its first podium of 2017 after the team’s #98 V8 Vantage GTE finished the FIA World Endurance Championship’s season opener at Silverstone in second.

After qualifying on pole yesterday, Paul Dalla Lana (C), Mathias Lauda (A) and Pedro Lamy (P) amassed a commanding lead by the three-hour mark. Despite the team’s strong start, an incident in the series’ LMP1 class ensured the safety car came into play, diminishing the crew’s advantage in the process. With the three GTE Am leaders trading lap-times throughout the closing stages, Lamy emerged second by the fall of the chequered flag cementing a strong start to the team’s 2017 GTE Am campaign.

Alpine domination goes unrewarded


• The FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) today with the 6 Hours of Silverstone (United Kingdom).

• The Alpine A470 of Nicolas Lapierre/Gustavo Menezes/Matt Rao finished the opening race of the 2017 season in fourth position.

• Signatech Alpine Matmut dominated the majority of the race, but the team's strategy was undermined by the intervention of the safety car.

• Two Alpine A470s will be competing at the next round, which will be held on 6 May at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium).

Contested on a dry track, the three free practice sessions enabled the team to fine-tune the set-up of the Alpine A470. In qualifying, Signatech Alpine Matmut waited before showing its hand. The last car to take to the track, the no.36 was driven in turns by Matt Rao and then Nicolas Lapierre. Based on the average of their fastest laps, the Alpine drivers grabbed the second best time, just 46/1,000ths off pole position!
