June 2nd, 2012
Lukoil Racing’s Gabriele Tarquini claimed his second World Touring Car Championship pole position of the season at the Algarve. The Italian had earlier dominated free practice one, but feared a factory Chevrolet resurgence in qualifying.

World Touring Car Championship leader Yvan Muller produced a last lap effort to knock comic book character Michel Vaillante – or rather RML Chevrolet team-mate Alain Menu sporting contact lenses and dyed hair – from the top spot in the second free practice session at Algarve. Swiss racer Menu edged out Muller for first place shortly after the mid-way mark of the half hour session, recording a lap 0.071 seconds ahead of the triple world champion. The Frenchman left it until his last run to offer a response, but Muller’s fastest time of 1m55.590s remained over a second slower than Lukoil Racing’s Gabriele Tarquini’s benchmark time from free practice one

The cream of British motorsport talent raised around £20,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society as they came together to celebrate the life of Dan Wheldon in a charity karting event at Daytona Motorsport’s Milton Keynes venue in the UK on Monday night. The over-subscribed event, organised by Wheldon’s friend and Lotus GT racer Johnny Mowlem, was won by 2009 Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button, who shared a kart with Wheldon’s father Clive in their DW Lionheart team. Button and Wheldon were assisted in no small part by the Cash for Penalties system – which allowed teams to pay bribes to make sure their rivals were black-flagged and docked laps – and justifiably so
