Weekend in Motorsport (30/31 July 2011)

Ahoy MSCers,

This weekend's motorsport action focusses on the Ardennes and the Spa 24hrs.

The headline entries come from McLaren's three GT3 versions of the new MP4-12C which showed good pace as invitation entries to the recent British GT round at Spa.

Most established teams such as United Autosports have star names such as Mark Blundell, Johnny Herbert, Arie Luyendyk, Eddie Cheever and Stefan Johannson in 3 Audi R8s battling factory backed R8s driven by amongst others Mike Rockenfeller who was last seen with his R18 in pieces against the armco on the Mulsanne.

Photos of the event build up available from Endurance Info

F1, of course, continues its march around the globe, having been at the Nurburgring last weekend in the rain.

Just imagine if they had the bottle to run on the old north loop, it might look something like THIS

My other favourite video of the week was the one to accompany Dickie Meaden's EVO magazine article on testing the latest iteration of the Porsche 911 in South Africa

Finally, please keep us informed if you find any bugs or quirks with the MSC app. One of the advantages of the Android platform is the wide range of devices that can run the software so it is possible that some issues only affect certain types of phone or tablet or a specific version of Android.
