VW continues to invest in the future of motorsport in SA

Volkswagen has established a specialised Motorsport Academy to invest in the future of motorsport locally.

Local racing is 'lekker' but why the disinterest?

'The lack of interest in local motorsport has seen the sport dwindle down from what it once was', writes Charlen Raymond.

Sweden -  Citroen World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke retired on day three of the WRC round in Sweden after losing power in his C3 when snow passed through the vehicle's turbo.

Little progress made

Meeke, 38, struggled in 10th place on Friday and continued to battle on Saturday. Being the fourth car on the track, Meeke hit a snow bank on stage 13, resulting in a turbo failure. 

In a bid to overtake Meeke who had slowed down, Toyota driver Ott Tanak made contact with Meeke who was then forced to retire from the event.
