After 48 laps and a distance of 165.216 kilometres, the 41-year old Mercedes-Benz driver won and is now leading with 20 points in the championship standings. In the pointsa€™ standings, Bernd Schneider is leading with 20 points from Tom Kristensen (16) and Mika HA¤kkinen (11). Tom Kristensen (2nd place, Audi Sport Team Abt): a€?This was a great race and a fortunate afternoon. After qualifying, several drivers collected penalties for not staying within the bounds of the track.
Valsecchi got away well, enabling him to lead into the first corner, in front of Eric Salignon, Patrick Pilet, Borja Garcia, James Rossiter and Enrico Toccacelo. The race resumed for real four laps later, just before the start of the mandatory pit stop period.
On lap 6, Danielsson, Fukuda, Kochem and Bonetti all go for the gamble of an early pit stop strategy. Davide Valsecchi was handed a drive through penalty on lap 10 for having changed wheels after the a€?5 minutea€™ board was shown before the start. On lap 18, Hanley moved into the lead in the home straight just as the safety car came out onto the track! Borja Garcia: a€?It was a difficult race, but the team did a fantastic job during the pit stop. Busch Series director Joe Balash said penalties are expected and should be announced Tuesday, but Harvick would be allowed to keep his second-place finish.
Because the race was held at a restrictor-plate track, tolerances are smaller and penalties could be higher. Melandri took victory under dramatic circumstances, when it looked as if it would be a straight battle between Stoner and Dani Pedrosa in a repeat of last yeara€™s 250cc race. Stoner was close to becoming the joint youngest winner of a MotoGP, but the Honda LCR rider had to make do with his first podium in the premier class in only his third race. Valentino Rossi was largely anonymous at the start of the race, dropping to 14th after running wide. Loris Capirossi was off the podium for the first time this season, ahead of pole-man Chris Vermeulen. 38,123 spectators flocked to the Istanbul Park Circuit, and none of them will have left disappointed, with three races of the highest quality at one of the most exciting circuits on the MotoGP calendar.
Behind the two leaders (pictured right), who were virtually inseparable, a group of three drivers formed featuring Danielsson, Garcia and Toccacelo. Then rain made an appearance for the last two laps, making conditions extremely hazardous for the drivers. Even Salignon (pictured right), who had by this time built up a comfortable lead, made a mistake, running wide on the final few corners.
Borja Garcia: a€?The car was good at the start but I was hit by another car and picked up a slow puncture one of the rear tires. The final race result is subject to the outcome of an appeal lodged by Eurointernational with the FIA.
His fellow Mercedes-Benz-driver and former F1 world champion Mika HA¤kkinen is lined up alongside the 23-year old for tomorrow's race.
The winner of the season opener at the Hockenheimring, Bernd Schneider (Vodafone AMG Mercedes), was fourth ahead of Audi-driver Tom Kristensen. Former runner-up in the Formula 1 world championship, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, didn't make it into the seven minutes' final session with his Veltins Audi A4 DTM and will now be starting from tenth position behind fellow-Audi-driver Christian Abt into the second round of the DTM season over a distance of 48 laps. On Sunday, the two ladies in the 20 car field, Susie Stoddart (AutoScout24) and Vanina Ickx (Futurecom TME), will be starting from 18th and 20th place respectively. As Dutch driver, Olivier Tielemans, had come off the track with his car in the first session and had to be recovered, action was interrupted for nine minutes. He caught leader David Reutimann on the 147th lap then held off Musgravea€™s charge in a three-lap shootout following the racea€™s record, 13th caution.
The performance, before an estimated 40,000, also gave Bodine the series points lead for the first time in the 42-year-old New York nativea€™s career. Reutimann, who led twice for 63 laps, claimed third as Toyota trucks swept the top five positions. Four drivers a€“ Bodine, Musgrave, Reutimann and Dennis Setzer a€“ swapped the lead seven times. There are similarities to be found in track-and-field competition; if Formula 1 (short sprints under 200 miles on road courses) can be equated to the 100 meters or the 120-meter high hurdles and stock car racing (mostly 500 miles on oval tracks) can be equated to the 10,000 meters, Champ Car racing is the decathlon. Another exciting item on the schedule is Formula BMW German, which will once again turn the spotlight on its young racing talent under the gaze of their F1 heroes. The race was slowed by four cautions including a caution on lap 67 brought out by Tony Stewart.
Greg Biffle, the 2003 series champion, gained two spots in the point standings moving from 10th to eighth after finishing sixth in the race.
The NASCAR Busch Series rolls into Richmond next Friday May 5 to race under the lights in the Circuit City 250 presented by Funai.
Mikko Hirvonen had been driving a conservative rally behind the leaders and moved into third when teammate Gronholm stopped.
MotoGP rookie Chris Vermeulen used the adverse conditions to his advantage, putting in fast laps at the midway stage and riding with control and poise for his first ever MotoGP pole position. To add to Suzukia€™s joy, John Hopkinsa€™ steady run ensured that both of their riders will start tomorrow on the front two rows.
World Champion Valentino Rossi is still yet to earn a pole position in 2006, and as in Jerez will start the race off the front two rows of the grid having qualified eleventh. Eddie Cheever (USA) was fourth, Warwick (Britain) fifth and also making his GP Masters debut was Pierluigi Martini who finished in 6th.
In a statement, company officials said that the decrease resulted from schedule changes to the NASCAR calendar. Dover reported a net loss of $4.3 million, or -12 cents per share for the quarter, but said that fewer outstanding shares in 2006 will benefit earnings per share. The rescheduling of the Nashville race also resulted in a $2.1 million decrease in marketing expenses for the first quarter of 2006, the report said.
And drivers like Ricky Rudd, idle at the moment, say they've talked with Toyota people who have inquired about driving jobs next season, when the Camry brigade is due at Daytona, and some testing this summer. However, that apparently is about to change, according to Jim Aust, Toyota's vice president for motorsports.
So yesterday Michael Waltrip announced he would become Toyota's official NASCAR at-the-track Cup spokesman. First order of business for Waltrip yesterday: to put as much distance as possible between Toyota executives and NASCAR racing decisions about crewmen and drivers. Waltrip insists the media "had got it all wrong" about what Toyota is doing behind the scenes.
The Speedplex redevelopment will include office towers for ISC and NASCAR as well as retail buildings, a multiplex cinema and residential condos.
NASCAR had extra officials in the turns at the season-opening race at Daytona to watch for aggressive driving after criticism that bump-drafting had escalated to an unacceptable level. After his victory in the season opener at the Hockenheimring, record DTM champion Bernd Schneider again proved himself to be in excellent shape.
The decision in the battle for victory in the second season round of the DTM at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz fell in the pit lane.
The third DTM round of the season is taking place at the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben on May 21.
Trouble with the pit stop, during which a wheel nut got stuck, eventually cost Mika the race win.

Wolfgang Ullrich: a€?Today, we have seen a very exciting and fair race, during which there were tough battles.
So in the end, it was Davide Valsecchi who started in pole, ahead of Salignon, Pilet, Toccacelo, Barba, Garcia, Rossiter and Kane. The safety car was brought out after two laps, after Mikhail Aleshin (Carlin Motorsport) went off.
James Rossiter got the better of Borja Garcia, whilst Andy Soucek moved past Enrico Toccacelo.
The Italian came in straight away for his penalty, thus handing the race lead to Salignon, who was followed by Pilet, Garcia, Toccacelo, Pavlovic, Jouanny and Valsecchi, who were all yet to change their tires.
Salignon followed suit a lap later, leaving Borja Garcia in the lead, ahead of Toccacelo and Jouanny. The 43 cars started their pace laps, however rain started to fall and the start was aborted.A  The race will run at 12 noon Eastern time tomorrow (Monday) and the USA TV broadcast will be on FX, not FOX. 21 Chevrolet was found to be too low in post-race inspection following Saturday's Aaron's 312 NASCAR Busch Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.
Harvick leads the Busch Series standings by 299 points over Richard Childress Racing teammate Clint Bowyer. Nicky Hayden, run wide by Melandri when he looked to be shaping up to make an overtaking maneuver, continued his long run of podium finishes. He made his way up the field diligently to come near to taking third from Haydena€™s grasp, taking Toni Elias along for the ride. The Australian did superbly to hold off the field on the first lap, and pushed his Suzuki to the full in order to avoid dropping down the running.
The Frenchman won the first race of the 2006 World Series, holding off the attentions of Christian Montanari (Prema Power Team) right to the chequered flag.
Attention then turned to the five strong group led by Shimoda (6th), Kerr, Fleming, McIntosh, Rossiter and Hanley. But the French driver managed to make it back onto the track in front of Montanari and to get past the finishing line in the lead! Green had already been fastest in qualifying for the DTM race in the lower Lausitz region in September last year. After that, the clerk of the course decided to combine the first and the second session of the three-way "shoot-out qualifying". Bodine, who led three times for 66 laps, dropped from the lead to mid-back two-thirds of the way into the 200-mile, 160-lap race following a pit stop for fuel and four tires.
He heads Musgrave by 12 points following the fifth of 25 scheduled events in the 2006 season. Former Gateway winner and three-time series champion Jack Sprague was fourth with Johnny Benson taking the No. 1 position by virtue of owner points after rain washed out qualifying, was among a half-dozen drivers knocked out of the race by accidents.
Greg Conner and the balance of the #61 team members will be integrated into the Front Row Motorsports organization beginning this week with the running of the Aarona€™s 499 at Talladega.
All drivers in the Champ Car World Series use a Lola chassis with a spec Ford Cosworth engine and Bridgestone tires.
To win in Champ Cars, a driver must master multiple skills that are necessary in each different form of the sport.
Stewart slid down the track in front of Kenny Wallace, turned sideways and became airborne. Raybestos Rookie of the Year contender Mark McFarland was the highest finishing NASCAR Busch Series regular with a career-best seventh-place finish. Almost simultaneously starting to fall as the 125cc riders took to the track, the rain guaranteed that the day would be unpredictable as the wet weather served as the great equalizer between bikes. After a problematic race in Qatar, the Rizla Suzuki rider is in a strong position to place well in Sundaya€™s race. In front of a respectable audience in the Turkish grandstand, American Nicky Hayden battled for the top spot throughout the last half hour.
Randy de Puniet, one of the few riders to remain without points so far this season, put in the sixth fastest time of the session, ahead of Casey Stoner.
The Doha desert heat produced almost unbearable conditions as a track temperature of 58 degrees was recorded at the start of the event. The six fastest laps overall were split by a mere tenth of a second in a race that produced drama in the way of overtaking, safety cars, retirements and at times four cars running abreast down Losail's 1068m main straight.
The car will run on Diester fuel, which is a mix between diesel fuel and colza (vegetable oil), i.e. What makes it particularly exciting is the drop-out system, which eliminates the six slowest drivers per session.
No major racing events were held during the first quarter of 2006, while last year the NASCAR Busch Series race in Nashville was scheduled during the first quarter. In the first quarter of 2005, Dover reported a net loss of $3.9 million, or -10 cents per share. And Waltrip, who concedes he has preferred to hide out in the drivers' motorcoach more so than his own Cup rig, says he'll now be the trackside point man for Toyota. The entrant will be known at Audi Sport North America Team Champion, marking a significant embracing by Audi of Champion Racing as a factory-supported effort.

Eventually, Green finished in fourth place, ahead of his Mercedes-Benz-colleague, Canadian Bruno Spengler. Until two laps before the end, the Swede was running in second place, but then, he had to park his car due to lack of fuel. Borja Garcia (RC Motorsport) finished on the podium again, and third place went to Pastor Maldonado (Draco Multiracing USA). These two were followed by Salignon, Garcia, Maldonado, Kane, Soucek, Pavlovic, Barba, Toccacelo and Jouanny. The safety car, having just gone off the track, had to come out again, this time in front of new race leader, Eric Salignon.
Shinya Nakano, Colin Edwards and Makoto Tamada completed the top ten, on a day which was dry apart from a few light drops of rain during the MotoGP race itself. The third podium spot was taken by Borja Garcia (RC Motorsport), who coped better on slicks than Alx Danielsson (Comtec Racing) in the closing laps of the race as rain began to fall. A few corners further on, James Rossiter (Pons Racing) took the scenic route through the gravel trap, before making it back on to the track.
Barba snatched 9th place from Fleming, while Celso Miguez's race came to a premature end in the gravel trap. And then the talented young Belgian was handed a drive through penalty for not having started from the back of the grid despite stalling during the warm-up lap. Enrico Toccacelo lost 5th place on the final lap, and ended up being overtaken by Rossiter, Fleming, Kerr and Maldonado.
Third fastest time in the final session of the best eight drivers of the new shoot-out qualifying in slight drizzle was set by Mattias EkstrA¶m with the Red Bull Audi A4 DTM. French driver, Jean Alesi, was in sixth position with the best-placed car from last year, followed by Canadian Bruno Spengler and Greek Alexandros Margaritis in seventh and eighth place respectively.

The strategy proved to be a winning one as Bodine roared back to the front with Germain Racing teammate Ted Musgrave in tow. Compared to IRL Indy Cars, the road holding is poorer (no foot-to-the-floor driving for entire laps at a time).
Champ Car races on permanent road courses (where gear shifting, braking, and quick reactions can improve speed), street circuits (combining all of the skills need to be fast on permanent road courses with a need to be precise because of the narrowness of the course and the nearness of safety barriers which could break a suspension with even a moderate impact) and oval tracks (where maximizing a road holding package and driving smoothness become the essential traits of success).
Truex held off a charge from NASCAR Busch Series points leader Kevin Harvick and Hendrick teammates Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers. After Stewarta€™s car settled upside down on the frontstretch he was hit by rookie Danny Oa€™Quinn Jr. McFarland was followed by Johnny Sauter and Paul Menard who finished eighth and ninth, respectively.
His quickest lap of 2a€™04.617 was slower than yesterdaya€™s free practice leading riders in the dry.
In the closing moments of the session, the Repsol Honda rider was seemingly on course to take the lead with both he and Vermeulen on hot laps. LCR Hondaa€™s sole rider suffered two crashes during free practice as the weather hindered his final chance of becoming MotoGPa€™s youngest race winner tomorrow.
A cock-pit temperature of 77 degrees was recorded with the highest previously known to be 68 degrees!
Out of the15 that started, 12 cars finished with De Cesaris (Italy), Salazar (Chile) and Stuck (Germany) retiring.
However, he encountered problems on the left rear wheel during his second pit stop while leading the race. When you are having problems with one car, it is good when another car is there to take over. The tension was palpable, as Ben Hanley was lapping very quickly at this stage of the race. As the rain continued, the red flag was shown to bring the race to an early end after 25 laps.
No Champ Car team has a monumental technical advantage over another (unlike Formula 1, where Michael Schumacher went from World Champion in 2004 to backmarker in 2005 a€“ not because he forgot how to drive, but because his combination of chassis-engine-tires proved to be inferior last year).
Taken with the fact that every Champ Car driver has the same basic technology package, each competitor must somehow either stay ahead or pass his rivals. Again, since all Champ Cars begin every race weekend with essentially identical equipment, the successful Champ Car drivers are the ones who master all of these skills the best.
8 Chevrolet carried the familiar black paint scheme of Dale Earnhardt on Dale Earnhardt Day a€“ recorded his 13th career victory while becoming the only series driver to win in his first three starts at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.
Harvick finished second after starting 19th and stretched his lead to a commanding 299 points over Clint Bowyer, who finished fifth. Both drivers were able to walk away from the wreck however neither was able to return to competition. With his eighth-place finish Sauter moves into the top 10 in series points into the 10th position.. However it wasna€™t to be for the Kentucky kid, as he went off-road to his obvious annoyance.
Shinya Nakano clocked the eighth fastest time of the qualifying session, ahead of Americans Colin Edwards and Kenny Roberts Jr. Mansell, who started from pole, led the incident packed race from the beginning and recorded his second consecutive victory following his win at the inaugural round in South Africa. The company and its subsidiaries operate four motorsports tracks in three states and promote NASCAR, IRL and NHRA events.
Johns River Water Management District for a storm water drainage permit for the project, but that doesn't mean it will do the project, yet, company spokesman Lenny Santiago said.
It will be considered all the way around the track." Hoots asked the drivers to err on the side of caution.
Danish Audi-driver Tom Kristensen secured himself second place, 1.428 seconds behind the winner. Montanaria€™s race came to premature end when he ran into the gravel trap, along with James Rossiter. In a heart-stopping final, Mercedes-Benz-driver Jamie Green claimed his second pole-position of the season.
By combining resources and sharing knowledge, we are confident that we can improve each of our teams,a€? states Front Row Motorsports owner Bob Jenkins.
Fine-tuning is an essential element of racing and Champ Car drivers must become exceptionally sensitive to a cara€™s performance. In short, the driver behind must try to get ahead using a portion of the pavement that he would not normally want.
Busch and Vickers worked together to lead a combined total of 40 laps and finished third and fourth, respectively. Germany's Christian Danner finished in second place and Belgian debutant Eric Van de Poele came home in 3rd. Special guests will be the Salvation Army Grid Kids, who are disadvantaged youth from Salvation Army centers hosted each race by the American Le Mans Series as part of its official charity involvement.
After exciting battles and an overtaking maneuver on the final lap, HA¤kkinen still secured himself a position on the podium. The top ten was completed by Frenchman Jean Alesi (Stern AMG Mercedes) and a trio of Audi-drivers with Martin Tomczyk, Timo Scheider and Pierre Kaffer. And he has to do it without abusing his tires or exceeding the road-holding limits of his machine. His final lap of the Istanbul Park track resulted in his demoting team-mate Loris Capirossi to fourth, with both Ducatis having opened the day well as the two fastest riders in free practice. Sometimes you take a huge risk but it doesn't really count because it is only to get you into the next qualifying round. With his Audi A4 DTM, record Le Mans-winner Kristensen still claimed eighth valuable points in the fight for the championship after fascinating battles in the field. The two ladies in the field of 20 drivers, Susie Stoddart and Vanina Ickx, finished 15th and 16th in the Lower Lausitz. Since there is limited information to be gained from telemetry (unlike Formula 1), these skills are part of driving ability and mastering them is crucial to Champ Car success. James and Janet Guthrie), will appear live May 7 on Houston NBC affiliate KPRC-TVa€™s a€?Sports Sundaya€? show. Champ Car drivers must also properly manage equipment that becomes less effective as each race progresses.
From the very beginning of racing into the 1980s, drivers often had to be careful to save their brakes so they would not use them up before the end of a race. While carbon-fiber brakes and alloy pads have all but eliminated this issue, Champ Car drivers have a variation of that challenge with the a€?Power-to-Passa€?; when to use the allocated 60 seconds of extra horsepower is a skill and management of that resource is another part of a driving ability.
She will compete in dressage with a€?Oscara€? and in dressage, show jumping and cross country with a€?Harrya€?.
Lucas Luhr, who drives for Penske Racing, has won in class at all six of those events, the only driver to hold that distinction.
