Rising British star and Moto2 world championship leader Scott Redding will race in MotoGP in 2014 aboard one of the new Honda RCV1000R production bikes.
Here’s another one that’ll probably go straight into the “not bound for United States shores” file: the Ford S-Max concept, which will make its grand debut at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show.

The FIA Foundation’s director general, David Ward, has resigned his post in order to challenge Jean Todt for the FIA presidency.
In a statement, Ward said: “After much careful thought I have decided to stand as a candidate in the 2013 FIA presidential election. The election period begins in September and it will be necessary for me to approach FIA members to secure nominations. In these circumstances I think that the correct course of action is to resign.
