Deletraz had a good start to the year in FR2.0 Eurocup but went a bit off towards the end. He won the NEC title quite handily though. It’s a sensible move up the ladder for him, especially as he squeezed in a one-off race weekend in a 3.5 car this year with Comtec.11th November 2015, 22:01 at 10:01 pm #30877711th November 2015, 10:26 at 10:26 am #3087629th November 2015, 18:56 at 6:56 pm #308663
AVF’s line-up is now set – Tom Dillmann joins them from Carlin alongside Alfonso Celis Jnr who will start his second year at the team
AVF by Adrian Valles is proud to announce the agreement reached with Tom Dillmann for the 2016 Formula 3.5 V8 championship. The Frenchman was lined-up by the team in the collective post season test at the Motorland Aragón venue in Alcaniz, and he performed extremely well, staying among the frontrunners in every session. With such a successful start, the agreement between the two parties came naturally.
Dillmann, 26, is an highly experienced racer who won the 2010 German Formula 3 Championship before moving up to the GP3 Series in 2011 and to GP2 Series from 2012 and 2014, scoring one win and three podium finishes.
Last season, he entered the Formula Renault 3.5 championship and left a strong impression by grabbing one pole position and two podium finishes en-route to a seventh place in standings. Dillmann will line-up for AVF alongside the already-confirmed Alfonso Celis.
Adrian Valles – Team Principal
“I am really happy to rely on a skilled, quick and experienced driver like Tom Dillman. In the recent round of testing at Alcaniz he did a great job, we had a good time with him and he appreciated our work method. So we quickly found an agreement for the next season. Together with Celis, who grew up consistently race after race in 2015, I think Tom will form a great line-up that will allow us to aim for the top in every single race”.
“I’am delighted to take part in the Formula 3.5 V8 season with AVF. I thank Adrian Valles for providing me with this great opportunity. After the test we had together at Alcaniz, I’m sure we will be able to enjoy a succesfull season. The car is one of the best in business, it’s really quick and thrilling and I think I still have some unfinished business in single seaters. I never managed to be in the right place at the right time, but with AVF I feel I’m in the right position to score the results my abilities can do and reverse my fortune”.6th November 2015, 22:25 at 10:25 pm #3085775th November 2015, 7:41 at 7:41 am #308545
This is a great question. I would suggest the the Life L190 which often broke down during its woeful qualifying efforts and never made it as far as a race.2nd November 2015, 21:51 at 9:51 pm #308392
FIM are really starting to make a meal of this. Now they’ve cancelled the pre-race press conference so they can summon all the drivers to a meeting:31st October 2015, 13:21 at 1:21 pm #308164
This is just lunacy…
Marquez assaulted at his home
Marc Márquez has been involved in an unpleasant confrontation with several Italian reporters.
According to police sources, the Spanish rider was grabbed, shaken and insulted at his home and was scratched on the neck in the process.31st October 2015, 0:18 at 12:18 am #308156
Rossi is appealing against the FIM to the Court of Arbitration for Sport:
In appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), Mr Rossi seeks annulment or reduction of the penalty. He further requests stay of execution of the decision in accordance with Article R37 of the Code of Sports-Related Arbitration.
As I said before, he should be thanking FIM for giving him such a lenient penalty to start with instead of the disqualification he deserved. And I suspect it will be interpreted as Rossi viewing himself as being bigger than the sport.19th October 2015, 14:28 at 2:28 pm #307228

@samiup This was covered on the site last week:
I wouldn’t set any store by the spin given to a story on Wikipedia because you never know who’s written or edited it. The ‘screamer pipe’ sounds like something someone came up with to make a story sound more interesting.7th October 2015, 9:58 at 9:58 am #306630
There’s definitely a whiff of the 1994 Benetton ‘Option 13’ launch control controversy about how VW were hiding their ‘defeat device’:
So why, then, did VW not simply stop using the defeat device when it was no longer needed? “There are two possible reasons. First it would likely have been integrated within the entire electronic architecture of the car and not easy to remove
