Even if you’ve been following racing sports all of your life, you may only have now thought about betting on a race.

You may have tried betting on different sports like soccer, baseball, or basketball before, but it is essential that you understand that betting on racing sports is something completely different. Here’s what you need to know if you decide to give these types of betting a try.

Familiarize yourself with popular sports

For starters, it’s important that you know what your options are. You might be a big fan of Formula 1, but it’s not the only sport you can bet on. In addition to the highest class in motorsport, you also have the Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships, as well as Formula E.

Then, the FIA ​​is also in charge of the endurance world championship, the world rally championship (and its ancillary series), the world rallycross championship and the world karting championship. The association also governs several European championships.

In addition, in the United States there is the IndyCar series as well as the NASCAR. In addition, there is also MotoGP and other motorcycle championships.

With so many options, it can be a bit overwhelming. The best way to start is to pick a sport / championship you are most familiar with and then develop from there.

Know the different types of bets

Then you also want to understand what aspects of the sport you can bet on. For example, in Formula 1 you can bet on the winner of the race.

While there are currently manufacturers who are a bit of a safe bet like Mercedes and Red Bull, a surprise comes in every now and then like Ricciardo winning at Monza or Ocon in Hungary, which makes betting a bit more fun.

Then you can also bet on who will be fastest in qualifying, who will be on the podium, who will have the fastest lap and who will be the winner of the Drivers’ Championship.

Many operators offer various alternative bets. With that in mind, you can find over / under bets. This means that you are betting on whether the winning margin will be larger or smaller than a number set by the accountant.

So if you think the difference between Verstappen and Hamilton at the end will be less than, say, 2.5 seconds, you will win if that happens. Additionally, you can also find specific combo bets like Vettel winning, Alonso being on the podium, and Hamilton not finishing the race.

Understanding Running Sports Odds

When it comes to understanding race odds, it’s usually pretty straightforward. Of course, while it will all depend on the race and the specific circumstances, you should be aware that the odds will be low if you bet on Hamilton or Verstappen to win in the 2021 season.

For the outcome of the whole season, the odds for these two are also pretty low. Even though it’s impossible at this point, if you were to bet on Vettel’s championship win early in the season, you would have seen higher odds. Underdogs always have high odds but, at the end of the day, the odds are still based on the bookmaker’s decision.

Find the right website

To get the most out of the variety of betting it is essential to find the right website that you can sign up for. All the leading bookmakers offer coverage of major sporting events and betting options, so you want to browse the offerings of the platform you are playing on. If you see a lack of options, it is always recommended to look for a better alternative.

Then it is also crucial to check the safety of the operator because you will be playing for real money and you don’t want to get ripped off. You can usually find badges at the bottom of the page that verify that the website is secure and licensed.

Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a website is the payment options. You want to make sure that you can easily deposit money into your account and withdraw your winnings in no time.

Adopt basic strategies for betting

Finally, to maximize your chances of winning, you also want to adopt some basic betting strategies. To begin with, you want to familiarize yourself with the sport you plan to bet on. You can’t bet on F1 if you don’t know the difference between Ferrari and AlphaTauri. So, watch at least a few races before you put any money on the line.

Plus, it’s also a good idea to keep up with racing news as you can learn more from the experts, hear behind-the-scenes drama, and know what to expect. Additionally, paying attention to the local weather is also a good thing as rain can wreak havoc on a race and lead to an unexpected winner.

If you are thinking of betting on motorsports, it is essential that you know something about the sports in question. Then you just need to find a trustworthy website and decide what bet you want to make.

Bill Okell doesn’t see age as a deterrent to going out and doing what he loves.

The now 64-year-old Saanich-based racer believes that as long as his doctor tells him his reflexes, hand-eye coordination and strength are better than the average person his age, it’s good to keep going. to drive sports cars.

If he did not run as much this year as last year – more a factor of economy than physical limitations – when he went out on the track, he made the most of his opportunities. The end of his qualifying season saw him make a third trip to the Sports Car Club of America National Championships, held for 2018 at Sears Point in Sonoma, Calif., October 15-21.

His best results came at Button Willow Raceway in California in April, when he set a new lap record in the GT Lites class and placed first in his division. The experience gave him confidence in his own abilities, he said, and reminded him to trust his teammates at Huffaker Engineering to set up the # 7 red Austin Healey Sprite and advise him on the best way to approach the course.

“I don’t run as fast as the other guys,” Okell said. “But it was one of those weekends where I was applying new principles and strategies to things like corners and acceleration. I had to believe my mind was wrong and the car was right.

At the national championships he will race both in the F Production class and in the GT Lites, with the same car, but with added weight in the latter category.

While last season was a very successful one for Okell, winning an SCCA Western Conference Championship title and posting several solid finishes along the way, it was a rather expensive race considering the number of events he and the ‘team participated. In addition to the cost, he was heading to the 2017 National Championships, held at the venerable Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where he placed 12th in GT Lites and 22nd in F Production, after being hampered by transmission issues.

Okell, who has also driven his own MG Midget a few times this season, will prepare for the national championships with a trip to Mission Raceway Park this weekend, driving a friend’s Honda. He hopes to build some momentum there before returning to Sears Point, an opportunity he believes keeps him doing what he loves.

“I’m 64 and just lucky to be able to keep doing this and to be in touch with such professional people, whether it’s people who help me locally or the Huffaker team.”

Let’s start here before we get into the complicated matters and before we fight together in a swamp of anger and disappointment directed at both old traditions and new standards in the beautiful and nerve-racking sport of thoroughbred racing. On the second Saturday in June of this year, 46 days ago, a brown-colored racehorse named Justify won the Belmont Stakes and became the sport’s 13th Triple Crown winner. He led every leg of the race’s endless 1 1/2 miles and finished 1 3/4 lengths ahead of runner-up Gronkowski, although the result was not in serious doubt at any point in the race except may -be for dreamers and spoilers. . Justify became only the second undefeated Triple Crown winner, after Seattle Slew in 1977. Most notably, he set his unbeaten record in six races in 112 days, a feat of precocity unprecedented in the history of the sport. .

Green4U Technologies, Inc. and Panoz Unveil Fully Electric Road Racing Sports Car Concept https://ykkcbi.com/green4u-technologies-inc-and-panoz-unveil-fully-electric-road-racing-sports-car-concept/ Thu, 15 Jun 2017 07:00:00 +0000 https://ykkcbi.com/green4u-technologies-inc-and-panoz-unveil-fully-electric-road-racing-sports-car-concept/ Don Panoz, president and co-founder of Green4U Technologies, Inc., this morning unveiled the new race car concept during an announcement at the company’s 24 Hours of Le Mans Village exhibit.

Don Panoz, president and co-founder of Green4U Technologies, Inc., this morning unveiled the new race car concept during an announcement at the company’s 24 Hours of Le Mans Village exhibit. Called Green4U Panoz Racing GT-EV, it is developed at the company’s design and engineering center in Braselton, Georgia.

“We’re starting it here at Le Mans because of the history of this iconic race where the brightest, most ambitious and toughest competitors always push the boundaries of motorsport and motor racing. ” Don Panoz noted. “We pushed the boundaries when we brought in Sparky [the 1998 Panoz Q9 GTR-1 Hybrid] and the DeltaWing at Le Mans, and we’ll do the same with the all-electric GT-EV.

“Our goal is to have our car run in a race, maybe even apply for a future Garage 56 location, and apply what we are learning to our Green4U EV vehicle designs.”

Jack Perkowski, CEO and Co-Founder of Green4U Technologies, Inc., added: “The development of an all-electric racing car that can compete with the best internal combustion engine racing cars puts Green4U at the forefront of electric vehicles.

The Green4U Panoz Racing GT-EV team, led by the VP of Engineering and Design Brian Willis, described the original design and performance goals of the race car:

  • 400 to 450 kW total power
  • Top speed of 175 to 180 mph
  • Removable battery pack design allows battery swaps during pit stops
  • Range of 90 to 110 miles in race conditions
  • All-wheel drive with two electric motors (one driving the front wheels and the second powering the rear wheels)
  • 2,200 to 2,750 lbs. total mass with battery
  • Approx 192 x 72 x 48 inch (L x W x H)
  • A unique carbon fiber chassis design with an offset closed cockpit
  • Active aerodynamics to reduce drag on the straights and increase range and performance
  • Regenerative braking technology on all wheels

“Our team is focused on achieving the speed and range of today’s road racing sports cars,” said Willis. “The key is the ability to go as far as gasoline and hybrid race cars with the power contained in a single battery, and then change the battery for about the time it takes them to fill their tanks.”

Don Panoz considers the Green4U Panoz Racing GT-EV to be the “holy grail” of racing, and is a strong supporter of “roots in racing” and pioneering and innovative technologies across motorsport.

Green4U Technologies, Inc. also revealed renderings of its street-legal sports car project based on the GT-EV. Conceptualized by a renowned automotive designer Peter Stevens, which has helped in the design of many vehicles such as the Panoz Esperante GTR-1, the design includes a unique two-passenger jet fighter-style cabin where the passenger sits behind the driver.

ABOUT Green4U Technologies, Inc.
Founded in late 2016, Green4U Technologies, Inc. acquired BraseltonDeltaWing Technology Group, founded this year, to serve as the base for the company’s EV operations. Don Panoz originally created the DeltaWing Technology Group to consolidate its organization’s expertise in the design, engineering and manufacturing of transportation, aerospace, aviation, defense and powersports. In addition, Green4U acquired Panoz LLC and Team Panoz Racing.

As a result of these acquisitions, Green4U Technologies, Inc. immediately realizes powersports development, engineering and manufacturing expertise and capabilities.

ABOUT Panoz
Following its successes in the pharmaceutical and resort industries, Don Panoz turned his attention to motorsport and left indelible marks in the racing circles of IMSA, IndyCar and Champ Car World Series sports cars.

In 1997, Panoz created the Panoz Esperante GTR-1, the first successful mid-engined racing car prototype in over 30 years of racing. He followed that up a year later with the world’s first successful modern hybrid racing car – the Panoz Q9 GTR-1 Hybrid – affectionately known as “Sparky”. More recently, he continued his beliefs of “never going with the status quo” by driving the DeltaWing Roadster and DeltaWing Coupe race cars, competing with about half the horsepower, about half the weight, and significantly lower fuel mileage. to that of its competitors.

More details on the specific battery of the Green4U Panoz Racing GT-EV, the electric motor, other relevant technologies and the GT-EV sports car approved for the road will be available at a later date. For more information on Green4U technologies, please visit https://www.green4u.com/

Earlier this month, Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton took first place in the Chinese Grand Prix. The victory barely breathed the news. Hamilton has become something of a redundant champion in recent times, winning nine of his last 11 starts dating back to last year when the 30-year-old Briton won the year-end F1 championship. The events following Hamilton’s crossing of the start-finish line did not appear to be a hot topic either. All the Mercedes driver did was act out the scene that every driver plays claiming the checkered flag: he reached for the nearest pre-approved drink and emptied its contents on every soul within reach.

The drink in this particular case was Mumm, no less than the official F1 champagne. And Hamilton, like a kid with a garden hose tormenting pedestrians from his backyard, sprayed it with astonishment in the faces of Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel, the second and third who would join him on the podium and wield their own mighty power. magnums of Mumm. Hamilton even rained a bit of the drink on a select crowd of VIPs – who, at least unwittingly, would redefine what we’ve come to think of as bottle service.

German powers Audi, Porsche, BMW and Mercedes-Benz miss out on our top five of the most beautiful sports racing cars.

The list was drawn up recently in a serious conversation at the local.

Although the Germans missed the top five there, it was agreed that if the list had been the top 10, they could very well have dominated the grid.

Here are our five most beautiful sports racing cars:

Ferrari Testa Rossa


Only 22 were made, but the Testa Rossa 250 is probably more romantic than any prancing horse racer before or since. Produced from 1957 to 1958, it won races all over the world. You could get one at auction if you have $ 8 million in reserve.

Jaguar type D



The dominance of the D-Type Jaguar over Le Mans and other sports car racing in the mid-1950s was visually linked to most of its later racing and production sports cars, from the XKSS to the Type E, XK8 and the new F-type coupe and roadster.

Ferrari 330 P3



Extremely pretty, the 330 P3 looks as new and original as it did 48 years ago. It was Ferrari’s first fuel-injected racing car and while the car’s shapely proportions don’t give you goosebumps, the sound of its center-mounted V12 engine will bring tears to your eyes.

Ford GT40

No matter how the French-controlled FIA tried to bend the rules, the superb Lola-based GT40 looked like it could win with any Ford engine mounted between its rear wheels. Its shape is timeless and one of the most copied in the industry.

Bentley Speed ​​8

Winner of Le Mans for Bentley in 2003, 73 years after its previous victories on the Sarthe circuit, the magnificent Speed ​​8 of the VW brand gave additional impetus to Audi’s sports prototypes campaign, thanks to family ties of the VW empire.
