The possible threat of protest is now hanging over next month’s season opener in Australia.
We reported a month ago that a dispute was brewing between Formula 1 engine suppliers Ferrari, Mercedes and Renault.
Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen picked up his second Monster Energy Supercross win of the season Saturday night in front of 69,785 fans at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga.
After trailing Ryan Villopoto for much of the 20-lap feature, Roczen capitalized on Villopoto’s mistake with six laps to go to capture the lead and eventual race win.
Martin Davalos broke through to capture his first career Monster Energy Supercross 250SX Class victory in front of 69,785 fans at the Georgia Dome.
The Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider led all 15 laps Saturday night, grabbing the victory in his 64th career start ahead of teammate Adam Cianciarulo and GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle.
Fresh off back-to-back Monster Energy Supercross victories, Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart enters Saturday night’s race at The Georgia Dome as the fastest qualifier in the 450SX Class.
Stewart topped both timed qualifying practices, with his fastest lap of 52.436 coming midway through the second and final session. He was more than two-tenths of a second quicker than JGRMX’s Justin Brayton and fellow Suzuki rider Broc Tickle.
Sylvain Guintoli of France produced the fastest-ever qualifying time at the Phillip Island circuit to claim pole position for Sunday’s opening race of the Superbike World Championship.
Guintoli steered his Aprilia around the 4.445-kilometer circuit in 1 minute, 30.038 seconds, beating the previous best lap of 1 minute, 30.234 seconds, set by Carlos Checa last year.
