The Daytona 500 is considered one of the most important stages of the famous NASCAR racing in America. This year, this racetrack celebrates its 50th birthday. Let’s take a look at the milestones in the past half century!
In the early years, the Daytona 500 was not as beautiful as it is today, but there were quite a few traps. Built back to the mainland, about a few kilometers from the famous beach on the beach, the new race track had high banks.
They allow the rider to safely run at maximum speed without worrying about being thrown off the track. The most memorable event in Daytona in 1979 is probably the collision on the track, between Cale Yarborough and Bobby Allison.
However, it is quite regrettable that a continuous accident caused no less than 21 racing cars to crash and seriously damage. The accident happened in the third lap, Matt DiBenedetto’s racing car was hit by the racing car Paul Menard from behind, leading to loss of control.
Immediately afterwards, DiBenedetto’s racing car spun a circle and resulted in 20 other racing cars crashing each other. This is probably the year that witnessed the most catastrophic crashes of this car model. Most recently, a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo burned fiercely while participating in the race in Nurburgring, Germany.
The fire is said to come from the engine of a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo supercar right in a corner. Then, this super car was engulfed in dark smoke and it was not until the firefighters were present to extinguish this fire.
However, the rear part of the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo racing car was burned down by fire and damaged quite heavily. Super Trofeo Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo on fire at the Nurburgring race, Germany is the third car to crash this year.
Clean energy is a hot issue in the fight against global climate change and the World Solar Challenge in Australia is one of the events that responded to this movement.
According to CNN, the World Solar Challenge car racing is becoming a test site for new technologies. That is when the participants drive the same solar-powered vehicle they design around Australia.
It is worth mentioning, all cars participating in the race were designed by university students. The riders will experience the 3,000km cross-country Kangaroo race starting from the northern territorial city of Darwin and ending in Adelaide, south Australia.
World Solar Challenge is currently the world’s most prestigious solar car race sponsored by Brigdestone Corporation. The race was held for the first time in 1987 every two years and took place about 5 – 6 days. Every day, the race starts at 8:00 am and lasts until 17:00.
The race is aimed at making solar automotive technology more popular. It also encourages new initiatives using clean. And they take sustainable energy to replace fossil fuels that are slowly exhausting and causing environmental.
The race attracts many teams from all over the world to participate, mostly by university student teams or companies, sometimes in high schools. The race has a history of more than 30 years with 15 staged tracks, with the first being held in 1987. Previously held every 3 years, then reverted to every 2 years. from the new century.
The idea for this competition originated from Danish explorer Hans Tholstrup. He was the first to travel around Australia on a 4.9 m long boat. He later competed in various competitions on fuel-efficient cars and trucks.
In the 1980s, he realized the need to find a sustainable energy alternative to the dwindling fossil fuel source. Sponsored by the BP energy company, he designed the world’s first solar-powered car – The Quiet Achiever.
He traveled a distance of 4,052 km through places such as Sydney, New South Wales and Perth, Western Australia for 20 days. Later, the idea for World Solar Challenge was born.
The Mercedes racing team officially won the 2020 season right after the 17th race, bringing the winner collection of Mode 1 to number 6. Having the advantage of winning a 1-2 pole, but the Ferrari duo still pity the driver. Bottas won the Japanese Suzuka race track. After the week of moving to the New World, the 18th race of the season will continue in Mexico City.
Returning to the Formula 1 racing competition schedule from 2015, Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez entered the 18th race. Although there was a statement from the authorities that 2019 will be the last year Mexico will enter the tournament. But with the latest announcement from Formula 1 racing executives, the Mexican Grand Prix race will continue until at least 2022.
The honor track is named after the famous racers Hermanos Rodriguez of Mexico. This new name has been used since 1986 instead of the old name Magdalena Mixhuca since the inauguration of the track in 1962.
In Mexico, the Rodriguez brothers are very famous in the motorsport world. Both Predo and Ricardo Rodriguez used to play for the famous Ferrari team.
The clockwise track has a length of one race of 4,304 km, racers must complete 71 laps with a total journey of 305,354 km. The track has 2 long lines passing through the start / finish line and between crabs 3 and 4. These two lines are also 2 DRS zones connected through the combination of 1-2-3 zigzag corners with defined points is located in the old baseball field.
This year, the organizers decided to add a 3rd DRS area at the high-speed meandering road at the end of sector 2. That’s between the 11-12 crab with the specified point behind the 9. Although the overtaking is increased. significant but 2,285 m above sea level.
In the current top 2 teams, the Ferrari duo and the Hamilton driver have the same selection list with a combination of 3 types 1-5-7 sets. While Valtteri Bottas is 2-4-7, and Toro Rosso has a similar strategy.
Red Bull and the rest of the teams are mostly used on red C4 tires with 8-9 sets. In the last high-speed races, we haven’t seen a big difference between Soft and Medium. However, the possibility of air thinning will have a little effect on the rubber and asphalt surfaces in this track.
The 7th race of the 2020 season officially took place at the Spa-Francorchamps race track in Belgium. Race 2 weeks ago in Spain, fans continue to see Hamilton as the winner of the leg. Verstappen went on to second place and Bottas finished third with a few tire issues that affected Mercedes’ tactics for his No. 2 handlebar.
This weekend the races return to fans on a fairly long-standing track in Belgium, the legendary Spa-Francorchamps race. As expected before the Cataluyna race took place, the teams were all too familiar on the track. However, due to the complicated situation with the epidemic, the organization time has to be delayed until this point. A time when the weather was quite hot in Europe. That also significantly affects the settings for the cars of the racing teams so that they are optimal.
The Red bull is probably more effective in this regard than the Mercedes. The proof is that Verstappen has consistently been on the podium and Mercedes’ ability to split the duo is always possible in recent races.
Up until this point in the season, it could be said only Red Bull. Specifically, their main driver is Verstappen, which has the ability to influence the Mercedes duo in dominating the highest positions on the podium after the race ends.
However, at Spa-Francorchamps, which has never traditionally been Reb Bull’s forte with long straight lines, high speed corners. Mercedes will have its advantage again with the power of the engine being promoted. Spa-Francorchamps is a favorite racetrack of many riders. Normally, when playing here, very close to the Netherlands, Verstappen is always supported with a large audience.
This comeback, with regulations on social distance, will continue to have no spectators to attend sporting events. And it is almost likely that the racers will play without direct fan support until the end of the 2020 season.

After being postponed to 2021, the Olympics in Tokyo is likely to face quarantine barriers, restricting the audience because of fears that the disease will continue to erupt.

Most notably, athletes groups have been striving to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. The extension of the standard time to attend the 2021 Olympic Games gives Olympic runners from all countries the opportunity to improve their expertise.
Like many countries, Japan is facing a recession caused by coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, the cost of organizing the Olympic Games is skyrocketing, and the delay in organizing it is slower than the original schedule, causing Japan to lose 2-6 billion USD.
