European Le Mans series


Alpine ELMS

- ALPINE CELEBRATES ITS RETURN TO MOTOR RACING BY SCOOPING THE 2013 EUROPEAN LE MANS SERIES TITLE!

- The Alpine A450 of Pierre Ragues and Nelson Panciatici secured the 2013 ELMS crown thanks to a score of three podium finishes, including outright victory in Hungary, 35 years after the Alpine A442b’s triumph at Le Mans in 1978 with Didier Pironi/Jean-Pierre Jaussaud.

- Signatech-Alpine claimed fourth place at the final round of the 2013 championship at Circuit Paul Ricard, France, after a drama-packed race. 

Alpine’s renaissance was marked by the brand’s return to motor racing and its maiden season was rewarded with the 2013 European Le Mans Series title.

Signatech-Alpine’s programme for the season was confirmed on March 8 and featured two primary objectives: June’s Le Mans 24 Hours and the European Le Mans Series. In the six months that have elapsed since that announcement, the Alpine A450 has produced a number of top performances, extending from a strong display at Le Mans – which earned the ESCRA Award for the best technical support – to the brand’s first title success of the modern era.

Just two weeks after its landmark victory in Hungary, Signatech-Alpine lined up for the start of the 3 Hours of Paul Ricard with the ELMS title in its sights, 39 years after its last European crown with Alain Serpaggi, Gérard Larousse, Jean-Pierre Jabouille and Alain Cudini.

This weekend’s competition saw Pierre Ragues qualify the Alpine A450 on the second row before a cautious start to the race which led to the car initially trailing its chief rival for the championship. However, a lengthy pit stop for the latter enabled the Normandy-based driver to figure in fourth place during his 90-minute stint.

He then handed the car to his team-mate Nelson Panciatici who was forced to pit to change a defective steering wheel shortly afterwards. Overcoming that unscheduled stop, Nelson then successfully fought his way back up the order to clinch the title which came close to slipping from Alpine’s grasp…

Indeed, the N°36 Alpine A450 climbed from seventh place to claim fourth overall after improving its best race lap once again and despite one last pit stop which enabled Panciatici to complete the three-hour race with the pressure off. Fourth place was sufficient to clinch the 2013 ELMS crown for Alpine.

This title is a tremendous reward for a season which I believe was marked by panache, determination and professionalism,” observed Bernard Ollivier after the finish. “Ever since the start of the programme, we have been privileged enough to benefit from strong backing from the media and racing fans alike. We would like to dedicate this title to them. Perhaps it’s just a first step…”

I think we can say that Alpine is back,” observed Signatech Alpine’s Team Principal Philippe Sinault. “This team is like a family; a family which has worked very hard. It wasn’t easy because the programme got off to a late start and it took a little time to get everything into motion. It’s been a highly emotional ride, too. I would also like to congratulate Paul-Loup Chatin on his races which have earned him the title in his category. He was a firm believer in our project and I hope to see him become part of our LM P2 programme next year. It’s too soon to talk about 2014 but we are exploring the possibility of running two Alpine A450s at Le Mans as part of a broader programme.”

Philippe Sinault’s associate Didier Calmels added: “This title is the perfect reward for the hard work and sacrifices put in by Philippe Sinault. He has been the perfect leader and has always put the team first. His passion has undoubtedly lifted this programme with Alpine.”

The team’s drivers were also moved by the occasion, including Pierre Ragues who produced an impeccable season: “This is a very moving moment, and pretty incredible. We survived a few scares but the main thing is to have won the championship. This title showcases our level and we have made consistent progress. It’s time to celebrate our success which Signatech-Alpine deserves 100 percent!”

Nelson Panciatici added: “It was a drama-filled race which turned out to be quite difficult. I pushed as hard as I could during my first stint to move back up the leaderboard, but the end of the race was easier. Perhaps we were a little fortunate today but our sole objective was always the title. Everyone has worked extremely hard on this programme and today we form a real family, so this is a fabulous recompense.”

Like his elders, Paul-Loup Chatin had a dramatic race at Le Castellet, but Alpine’s ‘junior’ driver succeeded in coming second in the LM PC class to clinch the category’s title!

Tristan Gommendy was with Signatech-Alpine at Le Castellet to share the title celebrations. In addition to contesting the Le Mans 24 Hours with Pierre and Nelson, he carried out a significant amount of test work in the Alpine A450 in the course of the year.

DTM


19 Mike Rockenfeller (D), Audi Sport Team Phoenix, Audi RS 5 DTM

Masterpiece on the North Sea coast: Mike Rockenfeller wins early 2013 DTM championship title—

Zandvoort. Mike Rockenfeller is the 2013 DTM champion. Second place at Zandvoort in The Netherlands was enough for the Audi driver to win an early drivers’ title in the most popular international touring car series for the first time in his career. Although his only remaining rival, Augusto Farfus (BMW) won the race at the dune circuit, the Brazilian was beaten in the battle for the title.

“I can hardly believe it. This is an incredibly heavy load coming off my shoulders. In such a moment, it is all coming back again: the early years in the DTM, how difficult it was and how hard I worked. Many thanks to all those who have made this happen,” said Rockenfeller, who is leading in the drivers’ standings prior to the season finale at Hockenheim (October 18 till 20) with 142 points and has an unbeatable margin of 26 points. This year, Rockenfeller’s consistency was the key to success: with his Audi RS 5 DTM, the 29-year old scored points in every race and won at Brands Hatch (GB) and the DTM premier at Moscow Raceway (RUS).

Rockenfeller’s fellow Audi driver Timo Scheider finished third at Zandvoort, scoring his first podium finish of the season. In ninth position, Gary Paffett was the best-placed driver of a DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé. In total 41,000 fans attended the penultimate race weekend.

Farfus, who overtook fellow BMW driver Marco Wittmann in the opening stages of the race, scored his third win of the season. “I did my utmost and that was my goal. Hats off to Mike, he has done a great job. He has deserved the title,” Farfus said. At the start of the race, the 30-year old was attacked by Rockenfeller, but eventually clearly had the edge with his BMW M3 DTM and thus secured second place in the drivers’ standings early.

Swede Mattias Ekström (Audi) scored an impressive recovery. The two times’ DTM champion had started eleventh and finished fourth. Marco Wittmann (BMW), who had claimed his maiden pole position in the most popular international touring car series on the day before, finished fifth.

Gary Paffett, runner-up after the 2012 season, moved up into the point-scoring positions from twelfth on the grid and congratulated the new champion afterwards. “Congratulations to Mike, he has had a tremendous season. For me, it was rather disappointing, although our performance wasn’t bad,” the Brit commented.

The race at the dune circuit of Zandvoort was interrupted by a safety car phase after Dirk Werner (BMW) and Jamie Green (Audi) had collided on lap 38. The restart followed in the final lap of the race, allowing Rockenfeller to cross the finish line at racing speed.

Dieter Gass, head of DTM, Audi: “Congratulations to Mike, the Audi Sport Team Phoenix and the entire Audi team! Mike has wrapped up the drivers’ title early. Now, we are also on top in the manufacturers’ and teams’ standings. One really can’t hope for more. Mike is a worthy champion who didn’t make any mistakes under pressures today either. Timo Scheider covered his back and deserved his maiden podium finish of the season. Mattias Ekström’s recovery was sensational, too. Tonight, there are so many reasons to celebrate, and we will definitely do so.” 

Jens Marquardt, BMW Motorsport director: “Congratulations to Audi and to Mike Rockenfeller. Personally, I am proud of Augusto, because he has done what he could. He has dominated today’s race, he couldn’t have done any more. In his second season, he is doing well and he is already so strong. There will be many championship titles coming our way and we count on Augusto. There are two titles still to be won, and that is what we will be aiming at in Hockenheim.”

Wolfgang Schattling, head of DTM management, Mercedes-Benz:“Congratulations to the entire Audi team and to BMW for winning this race. Unfortunately, for us, it was a weekend to forghet. Too bad, because we didn’t have a chance to interfere in the battle for the championship. Now, the focus is on the finale, where we want to bow out from this season with good results.”

HISTORY OF THE CORONADO SPEED FESTIVAL

In 1997, an innovative idea was formed – the idea to combine a racing event with an event to pay tribute to the nation’s military, and additionally get more exposure for the Navy within the community of San Diego.

The event would be called the Coronado Speed Festival, and vintage cars from around the country would race at Naval Air Station North Island, on a track that was created in days – a spectator-friendly 1.7 mile course, constructed on the runways and taxiways of the military base. Over the course of two days, race fans, San Diegans and other interested parties would watch different race groups zoom around the track, all while stepping back in time to enjoy auto racing’s rich history, with tours of the racecar pits and the ability to speak with the drivers of these unique machines. Car Enthusiasts can also visit the Car Club Corral, which shows off a variety of automobiles that range in age, make and model.

The first event took place in October of 1997. The Holiday Bowl, a non-profit organization whose mission is to generate tourism, exposure, economic benefit and civic pride for San Diego and its citizens by producing the nation’s most exciting bowl game and festival of events. The partnership seemed to be a perfect fit, not only in that the group and the organization’s mission were similar. The event then transitioned to be part of Fleet Week San Diego. Fleet Week is a US Navy, US Marine Corps, and US Coastguard tradition focused on honoring the men and women of the military.

It seemed to all involved at that time to be a great fit as Fleet Week San Diego has a direct connection to the military, and the Coronado Speed Festival is an event to pay tribute and honor the military. The event is still housed under Fleet Week San Diego, and is the marquee event of the month-long activities.

Sam Bird (RUSSIAN TIME) Singapore R2

Bird cruises to Singapore sprint race win—
 
RUSSIAN TIME driver takes fifth victory of the season—
Sam Bird kept the pressure on Series leader Fabio Leimer scoring another win through a display of mature driving to take a lights to flag victory in today’s sprint race at the Marina Bay circuit. The Briton headed Marcus Ericsson and Leimer.
At the start, Bird was able to control the rest of the pack from pole position, Ericsson in tow. Behind the pair, Leimer leapfrogged a slow-starting Tom Dillmann to move up to third with Stéphane Richelmi also passing the Frenchman. Further down the field, there was a bit of chaos at Turn 8 when Stefano Coletti braked too late and punted Mitch Evans with Simon Trummer, Alexander Rossi and Dani Clos as collateral damage. All cars could resume their race, but the Monegasque driver received a drive through penalty.
At the front, Bird managed a small breather to Ericsson, both men saving their tyres and so were Leimer and Richelmi. Behind them, yesterday’s race winner Jolyon Palmer was fighting to keep his position, but the Brit soon started to struggle on his super soft tyres and had to let Jon Lancaster, Johnny Cecotto and Daniel Abt through. The German was running in seventh position but was handed a drive through penalty when it was shown that he had failed to slow down under yellow flag. Unfortunately for the German, he did not observe his penalty within the allocated window and was black flagged. Palmer was then busy defending from a charging pack made up of Daniel De Jong, Rene Binder and Vittorio Ghirelli. The Brit eventually returned to the pits for another set of tyres.
Ericsson looked like he was on a mission to try and catch Bird, the gap splitting the pair going down from 2.4s to 1.3s, but the RUSSIAN TIME driver picked up the pace again and made sure that the Swede was too far to be a real threat and drove safely to the chequered flag enjoying a fifth win this season and closing the deficit on Leimer in the standings. The Swiss had a quiet race to third ahead of Richelmi, Lancaster, Cecotto, and De Jong. Adrian Quaife-Hobbs charged to eighth and the final point of the race overtaking Binder in the final stages.
Leimer still holds on to the lead of the standings with 179 points to 172 points for Bird, while Nasr’s challenging race brought him no points and left him on 148, ahead of Coletti on 135 and Calado on 134 points. RUSSIAN TIME extend their lead in the teams’ standings over Carlin by 264 points to 247, ahead of Racing Engineering on 241 and DAMS on 205. The final round of the season will take place in Abu Dhabi in the first week of November.

British F3


Jordan wins Brit F3

King and Guimaraes share the wins, but King is crowned Champion—

The Nuburgring played host to a thrilling day of Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series action today, with the results of the second race seeing Carlin’s Jordan King become the 2013 British F3 Champion with one race remaining.
King took a dominant lights-to-flag victory in race one after title rival Will Buller suffered engine dramas on the grid. Newly crowned National Class champion Sun Zheng took class honours ahead of the two battling West-Tec entries.
It was Fortec driver Felipe Guimaraes who won the exhilerating second race, the Brazilian made a perfectly-timed last corner move on Spike Goddard to seal his second British F3 win of the season, and Chris Vlok stepped up to take a maiden win in the National Class.
Fast Facts
  • Jordan King takes 2013 Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series title
  • Tatiana Calderon becomes first female racer to achieve an International Class British F3 podium
  • Chris Vlok takes his maiden National Class victory
Race One – King dominates in first race, as Buller lucks out
A crisp, bright autumnal day welcomed Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series competitors this morning and the race delivered high drama before the lights had even gone out. Championship contender, Buller, was second on the grid but suffered a backfire on the grid that caused gases to mix in the air box, briefly creating a plume of black smoke from the Fortec car.
After Buller’s Dallara was pushed into the pit lane, a second formation lap took place and the race length was cut to 27 minutes. On the restart King got a solid start and led fellow title rival Antonio Giovinazzi by over a second after the first lap. As the race progressed Giovinazzi struggled with oversteer caused by rubber pick up from the earlier GT session and finished a distant 10.3 seconds back.
Behind the leading pair it was Buller’s team-mate Felipe Guimaraes who made the most of the unusual situation and the Brazilian jumped from sixth to third, a position he would hold until the flag,  holding off a race-long challenge from Carlin’s Jann Mardenborough who led home team-mate Nicholas Latifi.
Double R Racing’s Tatiana Calderon pulled the move of the race with a stunning overtake around the outside of team-mate Sean Gelael in the first corner to take sixth, she then pulled out a three and a half second gap over the Indonesian who was struggling with oversteer and Former British F3 National Champion, Spike Goddard. Formula 3 debutant, Alfonso Celis in the third Fortec Dallara-Mercedes had a tough first race, but the Mexican should be encouraged by his best lap, a 1:51.933, far quicker than those around him.
Buller did make an appearance after three laps, and the Northern Irishman got close to taking the fastest lap of the race, only for King to pip him to the point awarded for the achievement by 0.05s. It was an unfortunate race for Buller, and he now needs some luck to overcome the 28 point deficit to the Carlin driver. Giovinazzi remains third in the points, albeit one point off Buller.
The 2013 National Class champion, Sun Zheng further showed his title victory was deserving with yet another accomplished performance in the Mugen Honda powered CF Racing Dallara. The Chinese driver finished almost a lap ahead of New Zealander Vlok, although some of this time was accumulated when the West-Tec driver spun on the last lap just before the NGK chicane.
Race two – Guimaraes wins a thrilling second race, as King is crowned 2013 British F3 Champion
The second race of the day was a classic. Australian Spike Goddard started the reverse grid Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series race from pole-position and the Threebond with T-sport driver made the most of his front-row start, easing into turn one as fellow front row starter Double R Racing’s Sean Gelael was overcome by the cars behind him.
Despite being on old tyres, Latifi moved into second place and behind him the Double R drivers Gelael and title contender Giovinazzi were embroiled in a tussle that saw the fast -starting Italian move into the top five.
Championship contenders Will Buller and Jordan King had their work cut out to make a mark in the second race of the day. Buller started thirteenth and last, King was eighth, and it was the Northern Irishman who made his way up the order quickest. The pair did fight for position briefly, exchanging places twice on the opening lap, but King sensibly let his eager rival through and set about following him through the traffic; it proved to be a wise decision by King.
Buller was wasting precious little time and once released from behind King over took first Giovinazzi, then Carlin duo Jann Mardenborough and Nicholas Latifi, placing the Fortec man fourth behind the in-form Tatian Calderon.
King made his way up the order, but as Championship leader was understandably more cautious in his approach to overtaking. After inheriting seventh on lap seven following a spin by Indonesian racer Sean Gelael (Double R Racing), King was soon up to sixth on lap ten when Mardenborough went off and broke his right front suspension.
It was just fellow Carlin racer, Latifi that separated King from Buller, but the young Englishman needn’t have worried as Buller crashed out at the final corner on lap thirteen while chasing the impressive Calderon. The crash proved to be a frustrating end to a season that promised so much only six weeks ago for Buller, but the Fortec driver was strong in defeat and flashed a smile after the race saying he’d be going all out for a win tomorrow in the final race of the season.
The #2 Carlin of King whipped past the stricken Fortec Dallara and King knew he had the title won, but continued to close on Latifi and the nineteen year-old crossed the line fifth, taking his first major single-seater Championship title in Europe in the process.
Up front Goddard was putting in the drive of his life. The 2012 British F3 National Champion relished the opportunity to start from the front row, the second time in his British F3 career but first in the International class, and looked on course to take a stunning and highly popular victory. However Guimaraes had other ideas and the Brazilian driver was closing at a rapid rate. Goddard held off a strong challenge three laps before the end, and Guimaraes set about a last lap rally. The move itself was clinical and precise, leaving Goddard with no opportunity to defend. The Australian driver crossed the line a dejected second, Guimaraes was estatic. Finishing off the podium places was Calderon, and in doing so she became the first female British F3  racer to step onto an International Class podium.
Latifi finished fourth on scrub tyres, the Canadian teenager will be a force in the third race of the weekend when he has new rubber, King was fifth and Giovinazzi held onto sixth despite mounting pressure from team-mate Gelael who recovered to finish 1.4s behind the Italian. Giovinazzi now jumps up to second in the standings, four points clear of Buller. Nine seconds back from Gelael was Alfonso Celis in the #24 Fortec Motorsport Dallara, the Mexican continuing his education at a good rate, progressing with every session and recording a second points finish from two starts.
Team West-Tec’s Chris Vlok got the jump on rival Sun Zheng at turn one, the pair almost collided but gave each other just enough room to see out a second lap. The CF Racing driver proved he is no pushover and worked Vlok hard throughout the sixteen lap race but the West-Tec driver held on for a maiden Formula 3 win.
Rounding out the National Class was William Barbosa who finished 27 seconds adrift of the newly crowned National Class Champion, Zheng.
The final race of the 2013 Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series begins tomorrow morning at 07:30 BST / 08:30 CET  and it promises to be a fascinating encounter as drivers have one last chance to make good their championship positions.
