Lamborghini presents the new Huracan GT3 EVO2, a racing car based on the Huracan STO, with which it shares important design elements, rear-wheel drive only and a naturally aspirated V10 engine.

Compared to the Huracan GT3 EVO, which was homologated in 2019 and based on the Huracan EVO road car, the GT3 EVO2 is fully compliant with the new 2022 Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile technical regulations and offers completely new aerodynamic solutions and an admissions system.

The car will be delivered to customers from the second half of 2022 and the previous model Huracan GT3 EVO can be upgraded to GT3 EVO2 specifications with an evolution kit. Its track debut is scheduled for the 2023 24 Hours of Daytona.

Self-driving cars operate in heavy snow

Finnish self-driving technology company Sensible 4 has successfully completed a self-driving pilot project in Tampere, Finland, in the midst of the worst winter in years.

The 2.5-month pilot project, which started in January, involved two self-driving Toyota Proace vehicles driving along a mainline tram line in suburban Tampere. The vehicles were driven in temperatures well below minus 20 degrees Celsius on slippery roads with snowy lane markings and with high piles of snow along the route.

They covered 5,569 km, carried 1,663 passengers and traveled at a maximum speed of 30 km/h.

As part of the opening of its new state-of-the-art factory in Hethel, Lotus has unveiled its latest sports car, the Emira GT4.

The race car was shown lapping up laps on the venue’s test track with former British GT Championship winner and Lotus director of vehicle attributes Gavin Kershaw at the wheel.

It sees the automaker enter the world of performance GT racing and is the first new model from Lotus Advanced Performance, the company’s bespoke vehicle and experience division, which launched earlier this year.

The advanced composite body of the Emira GT4 makes it exceptionally light, combined with Toyota’s race-proven 3.5-litre V6 engine and the optimized aerodynamics of the GT4 thanks to the Emira Road exterior design.

The demonstration took place during the opening of the Chapman Production Centre, a new sports car manufacturing plant, which was named after the company’s co-founder, Colin Chapman.

The new sub-assembly centre, located in Hethel, on the outskirts of Norwich, is part of a £100 million investment Lotus has made in its UK sites.

The facility will be used to manufacture Lotus Emira vehicles, which are sold worldwide.

It has the capacity to build around 5,000 cars a year and uses automation to ensure a consistently high quality finish for its vehicles.

As with all of its Norwich sites, the center is powered by 100pc of renewable electricity.

Matt Windle, chief executive of Lotus, attended the opening with Clive Chapman – son of company founders Colin and Hazel Chapman – and Mr Chapman’s sister, Jane Payton.

Mr Windle said: “Lotus is transforming from a British sports car company into a truly global performance car company and brand, and the new Chapman Production Center is a symbol of the achievement of this ambition.

“We are proud of our past successes and excited about our all-electric future, which was launched all those years ago by our founder Colin Chapman, and I am honored that Clive and Jane can join us in marking this occasion. “

Along with upgrading its facilities, investment in its UK sites has enabled the car company to more than double its workforce since 2017, including creating hundreds of jobs in Norfolk. Positions recruited included skilled manufacturing operators, engineers and technicians.

Lamborghini has unveiled its latest generation of its Huracan GT3 race car.

Based on the manufacturer’s latest Huracan STO road model, the new GTO EVO2 follows on from the 2019 race car and is said to be fully compliant with the latest FIA 2022 racing and technical regulations.

Designed and developed by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing arm, the EVO2 uses the 5.2-litre V10 engine, which produces 631bhp, all of which is sent to the rear wheels.

(Lamborghini)

Key design elements borrowed from the Huracan STO include its special aerodynamic features and air intakes. These include the hexagonal air intakes and the rear spoiler. There are no traditional side vents, but rather a large scoop connected to the snorkel.

The Lamborghini features a full carbon fiber body designed with the brand’s Center Stilo division, with new splitters and a diffuser maximizing aerodynamic efficiency. These details, combined with the carbon fiber floor, all contribute to providing greater downforce than the outgoing model.

Lamborghini also promises improved safety, aided by a redesigned roll cage and new carbon-Kevlar honeycomb side panels. Elsewhere, improved braking performance is promised thanks to new calipers and pads.

Giorgio Sanna, Head of Motorsport at Lamborghini, said: “The new Huracan GT3 EVO2 is not just an evolution of the current car. It is a new project that strengthens the technology transfer between Lamborghini’s motorsport division and the company and inherits two difficult tasks.

“The first is to prove as capable as previous generations of Huracan GT3s, which won more than 40 international titles in six seasons, and, secondly, to match its commercial success by helping to reach the 500-car goal of Huracan racing since 2015.”

Lamborghini says the first examples will be delivered to customers in the second half of 2022, with the model set to make its debut at the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours. An “evolution” kit will also be offered to customers with existing Huracan GT3s.

A FERRARI racing car has been completely destroyed on a quiet residential street after it flipped a RANGE ROVER in a high-speed crash.

Photographs of the red sports car – which appears to be covered in racing stickers – show it with a totally creased bonnet.

A resident of the street says the Ferrari’s roar sounded like Formula 1 before the massive crashCredit: Gary Smith

A Range Rover was left flipped on its side in the driveway of a nearby house following the carnage in Ipswich, Suffolk.

Suffolk Police were called to the scene on Lindbergh Road in the east of the town at 7.04am on Saturday.

Police were then seen inspecting the wrecked cars after the crash and two police cars appeared to have blocked it.

The road was cordoned off while cops dealt with the accident, but the road has since been reopened and traffic is moving smoothly.

SuffolkLive reported that a person had been arrested by police after an accident on a residential street in Ipswich involving the Ferrari racing car.

The force did not confirm whether the detained person was driving either car.

Street resident Gary Smith, 51, said he heard the Ferrari rocket on the road “full throttle” before he heard a huge crash.

He told The Sun Online: “It was going as fast as this car would go, it was flat out.

“I was just thinking what was going on, it felt like Formula 1.”

Gary – who has lived on the street since 1999 – said the car then slammed into a parked Range Rover, flipping it on its side.

He said the crash was so loud it sounded like an “explosion.”

The engineer recounted how about thirty seconds after the crash, the engine miraculously “restarted” and the driver tried to move it but with little luck.

The 51-year-old said the owner of the overturned Range Rover was “in disbelief” that a racing car could send a 2.5-tonne engine into the air.

“It’s not every day that you wake up and see this,” Gary said.

Suffolk Constabulary were unable to confirm anything except that one person had been arrested following the incident and no members of the public were injured.

Once used as a getaway car in Italy, the GTA 1300 Junior has been carefully restored for use as a road car and retains the distinctive red ‘Alfa Rosso’ livery with white details.

Alfa Romeo is a brand that has long been associated with motor racing excellence.

The company was founded in Milan in 1910 as ALFA (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili), which was taken over in 1915 by Neapolitan entrepreneur Nicola Romeo who would change the name to Alfa Romeo in 1920. Alfa ran its first car, the 24HP, in 1911 and continued to build sports vehicles and was heavily involved in Grand Prix racing, Formula 1, sports cars, touring cars and rallies.

From the 1960s, Alfa Romeo raced cars modified from general production models, and their legendary Gran Turismo Alleggerita (GTA) was a redesign of its successful Giulia coupé into a lightweight racing car, using materials specials and highly developed engine modifications.

The GTA 1300 Junior, of which the current car is a fine example, was designed to enter the racing categories for smaller displacement engines where it enjoyed great success. The GTA 1300 Junior was a more affordable and cheaper to run sports car, available as a standard road car or modified for the race track.

It is believed that only 450 cars of this type were made between 1968 and 1975.

Although the debut of the current car is unknown, it appears to have been originally raced in Italy, with the base retaining evidence of race modification.

However, it was later converted back to road use. After being used as a getaway car, it ended up in a police impound in Rome, where it was spotted by GTA specialist Richard Banks in 1987, who acquired the car on behalf of the current owner.

A piece of Italian racing history, the Alfa Romeo GTA 1300 Junior offers the option of owning a classic road car, or it could be easily converted into a historic race car for track use.

The Alfa Romeo will be presented to the public on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 May from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., alongside all the other lots in the sale.

Prices quoted are an estimated hammer price, which is subject to a buyer’s premium of 10% plus VAT on cars and motorcycles and 22% plus VAT on all other lots.

A fully illustrated catalog will be available on the Tennants website at www.tennants.co.uk ahead of the sale.

Tennants Auctioneers is a fourth generation family business and one of the UK’s largest international antiques and fine art auctioneers.

Based in Leyburn, North Yorkshire, Tennants hold over 80 sales a year and connect over 200,000 buyers and sellers a year.

In 2014, Tennants expanded its auction center to 80,000 square feet with the development of The Garden Rooms – a venue dedicated to events, weddings, conferences and exhibitions.

The venue is one of the largest event spaces in the region with a capacity of over 600 people.

The venue’s next event will be the popular bi-monthly Antiques and Interiors Sale on April 29.

These sales attract a loyal following of repeat buyers and are a good source of 20th and 21st century collectibles. Including a mix of traditional art and affordable antiques, jewelry, watches and more, Antiques and Interiors sales are a great place for first-time buyers to start their collection.

This seems like one of those once-in-a-lifetime bargains that you’ll regret passing on if you don’t pick it up right away. This old-school racer is ready to give you a trail riding experience you just can’t get from something modern. And it’s only $12,500!

With a top-level race engine weighing in at a whopping 948cc, you know you’ll have to squeeze every rev you can, but because the car weighs about as much as a thimble, it can be pushed into the corner and maintain that momentum.

Being a pure racing car, much of the car’s original body looks like it’s gone, but it’s been replaced with a fiberglass facsimile to keep the vintage look. The stock Spridget chassis is still there underneath it all, so you can really feel what it’s like to race on those old-school lever-arm shocks and huge Hoosier slicks. Boy, what a dream this thing must be.

When I saw this listing, I had a quick chat with a friend who races this car’s sibling, the MG Midget on the West Coast. He was quick to comment that it looks like a great car and the engine alone is a $15-20,000 outlay to build from scratch! He also mentioned that it would take someone who really knows these machines to set them up properly and keep them happy on track. It’s not the kind of racer you get into as an amateur. That said, I’m two or three glasses away from thinking I’m the right guy for this car. It’s such a deal!

I recognize what I just said, and I understand that this is becoming more and more of a weird race car with each passing day, but I can’t help but think what kind of fun this monster would be. Better yet, what if you stuck some lights and signals on it and took it for a ride on your favorite road a few times a year? Tell me that doesn’t sound convincing.

If this bugeye seems like your cup of tea, check it out. some pictures and additional information on eBay.

Here’s what the seller had to say about it in the listing:

It takes courage to drive a race car. It takes courage to drive one quickly. It takes daring to drive one fast without being able to see.

With my face completely covered in a flame retardant balaclava, I climbed into a specially adapted racer and had a helmet clamped over my huge head. Then I was tied so tightly that I couldn’t move.

Ralph, my instructor for my lite session of two blindfolded and two sighted rounds, said my restricted movements were for my own benefit. And then the blindfold was put on me.

READ MORE: Stockport Plaza is a great time traveler – just wish the food wasn’t too much

Speaking to me through a microphone and speaker system installed in our helmets, Ralph says he will be a knowledgeable guide to me, and I believe him wholeheartedly. But I still don’t see. So I’m still definitely terrified.

“Press the Mushroom”

That fear evaporates in the spring sunshine near my second corner of the Three Sisters circuit in Wigan – with Ralph’s calm “more left…hold it…hold…straighten it” being as much advice as I need it. That feels, dare I say it, easy? It’s about following Ralph’s lead and not overdoing it.

“Plant it,” Ralph then tells me, and I do. That’s when my afternoon shifts from a gentle meander around a small circuit to the full racing experience that charity founders John and Mike promised me earlier.



Enter… completely in the dark

In a moment, we go, and we continue. There’s more wind, more noise, more pressure forcing me to sit down, and somehow more colors.

Ralph, who thankfully isn’t nicknamed “Wreck-It Ralph” until after I get out of the car, tells me to calm down and gives me a little more control on our second ride.

We repeat it indeed and it’s just as brilliantly intense the second time around. Lap two is the end of my blind run, so I go into the pits, take off the blindfold, and drive off again.

So, armed with a certain feel for the car, a better knowledge of the circuit, and still in Ralph’s expert hands, I’m ready to go. We go two more laps and I’m delighted with myself.




“My guess is you were a little faster blindfolded,” he tells me as we stop. Hearing this, I don’t understand why Ralph – my confidant, my guru, my wise guide – does not recognize my obvious talent. How could I be slower?

It’s because I’m scared, he explains, and it’s relatively common for people like me who do both sight and blind racing. Nonetheless, I had a great time — and I’m not the only one.

The Three Sisters circuit in Ashton-in-Makerfield has been home to the charity Speed ​​of Sight, which uses dual-drive cars to take people with visual impairments, mobility needs and hearing impairments to the circuit. learning.

“I became a little too confident”

“I don’t have a lot of eyesight and the charity allows people who are visually impaired to drive,” says Team GB Paralympian Amy Ottaway. The goalball player, who represented the Union Flag at London 2012, is pictured here with her fiance, Joe Dodson.

Like Amy, Joe was also a goalball player for Great Britain at the Paralympic Games ten years ago. They met in 2010, when they trained together.



GB Paralympians Joe Dobson and Amy Ottaway

Both say it was an “incredible” experience. Amy adds: “It was amazing [to be behind the wheel]really very good.

“I started to learn the track…I was probably a bit overconfident on the throttle, we had an interesting turn.

“It’s the first time they’ve released the racing driver in them”

Part of the reason it’s so amazing is that many people with disabilities cite driving as the thing they miss the most, says Speed ​​of Sight co-founder Mike Newman.

“I started bringing people with disabilities into adult life [speak to me]”, says Mike. “A common theme was that even though their lives changed beyond belief, the one thing they lacked the most was the freedom to drive. It started to make me want to give them back the joy of living.



Founders John Galloway (left) and Mike Newman

Mike, 60, is also the double speed world record holder. Racing a Formula 1 powerboat off Torbay at 110mph won him the crown for fastest blind on water in 2013.

And a year later, he became the fastest blind man on earth by driving a Nissan GTR at 204 mph. In doing so, he became only the second man in history – and the first blind man – to simultaneously hold two speed records.

Rather than pursuing more personal achievements, Mike decided to share his passion with other people with disabilities.

He continues: “John has helped me in the past with the land speed record. We had to give up our daily chores to get up and run.

“We started with our first car with the help of a businessman in Wigan. Then we had a second… The Three Sisters are huge supporters – they always go out of their way to accommodate us.

John Galloway, 57, says days like this are the ‘first time’ in a disabled person’s life they will have the opportunity.

“It’s the first time they’ve released their inner racing driver,” he adds.

Those days aren’t just limited to Wigan, either. Speed ​​of Sight is holding events this year at Teesside Motorway, Kames Circuit in Scotland and Llandow in South Wales.

Although supported entirely by donations, the charity is now in its tenth year and shows no signs of slowing down.

You can donate to Speed ​​of Sight and find out more about the charity online.

Few would have bet against Max Verstappen on pole position for the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, but he was beaten by Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, but the Red Bull ace is confident the RB18 is a good one. racing car for its Sunday trip.

After setting the pace for most of this weekend, we headlined the Bahrain qualifying preview: Who can beat Max Verstappen? Leclerc is the answer, at least for now in qualifying.

Summarizing his session in parc fermé, Verstappen told reporters: “Q2 looked good, Q3 was a bit more difficult but that’s okay, we have a good race car which at the end of the day is the most difficult thing. important. It’s a good start for the new era. There are some things to check and we’ll try to do better next time.

“You want to be good in qualifying, but make sure the car works in the race and it’s a bit different from some other tracks. It was a very good battle with Charles and Carlos, so they did a very good job this winter.

Verstappen: The Ferraris are very close and it’s going to be an uphill battle

max verstappen 2022 qualifying gp bahrain

In the team report, he later added: “Overall not a bad position, of course you always want more but it’s a good start to the season. It was a little more risky without really finding the right balance.

“There was oversteer and understeer, so you can’t really attack the corner, which makes it quite difficult to pull off that lap, so that’s something we’ll have to look at.

“Ferrari are of course very close and it’s going to be an uphill battle, they have two strong drivers so it’s going to be exciting.

“The weather is supposed to be warmer [on Sunday] so it will be a bit harder on the tyres. As a team we just have to see how competitive we are in the races, it’s a long season and a lot can happen, ”added the world champion who embarks on the defense of his first crown. in F1.

Perez: I just couldn’t get one hundred percent out of the car

220032-bahrain-gp-2022-perez

In the sister car, Sergio Perez was just under a quarter of a second behind Verstappen but still good enough for third place and good reason for the Mexican veteran to be confident: “I’m optimistic and in the race anything can arrive.

“I just couldn’t get one hundred percent out of the car, but we still have a good starting position and hopefully we can make up some positions on race day. It’s great to having other teams up there to make things more competitive, but it’s a long road and what matters is the race.

“I think P3 was possible if we had everything set up and I was able to do that last corner again, I ran a bit too much on the pavement. It would have been nice to start on the clean side of the grid , but a lot of overflow can happen here.

“Hopefully we can fight the Ferraris and have a good race for the fans. I’m looking forward to it, I want a good lap and a good pace. My target is at least to get on the podium and to win. “get a one, two for the team. We are in a good position to fight Ferrari,” added the 32-year-old.

Perez enters his second season as a Red Bull driver and will make his 214th start in the top flight when he lines up for the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday.

Ahead of the 2023 season, Ferrari has now unveiled the first look at its upcoming 296 GT3.

As the name suggests, the new track racer will be the GT3 version of the 296 GTB and will replace the current 488 for next year. While the new car undoubtedly borrows its design from the standard GTB option, it also has significant aerodynamic upgrades, including a comprehensive body kit that equips the vehicle with a much lower front splitter, canards of both sides of the front bumper, redesigned side skirts, vents that lead to the front fenders to reduce turbulence affecting the wheel arches, a large air diffuser at the rear and an imposing rear spoiler on top.

In terms of power, the 296 GT3 will also ditch the hybrid powertrain used in the GTB variant in order to comply with racing regulations. Instead, it will pack a mid-mounted V6 engine that typically puts out 654 horsepower, a significant step up from the 600 horsepower V8 in the 488, although Ferrari will likely have to cut power output ahead of the race.

For now, its other specifications have been kept under wraps, but we’ll learn more as we get closer to the 296 GT3’s debut in 2023.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Audi has unveiled its A6 Avant E-Tron concept.

OXFORD, Mississippi — A woman is listed in critical condition after police say she was injured in a car crash after two men took part in a drag race on Sunday.

The crash happened around 3.15am on West Jackson Avenue near McDonald’s in Oxford. Officers say the woman was driving and a Chevrolet Camaro hit her vehicle.

She was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi in critical condition.

The unborn baby was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Witnesses say that before the incident a large group had gathered at this petrol station just up the road.

Derek Redmond lives nearby and heard the accident. Redmond said he went to see what happened and did what he could to help police and firefighters.

“One of the main things was clearing the McDonalds parking lot. Get everyone out of there,” he said.

Investigators later found that 19-year-old Meko Lamar and 19-year-old Tyler Hammond were drag racing at the time of the crash. Hammond fled the scene after the accident, according to Oxford police.

Lamar was charged with homicide of an unborn child and drag racing. Hammond was charged with felony hit and run and drag racing.

Lamar received a $150,000 bond and Hammond received a $50,000 bond.

This is an ongoing investigation.
