GP3 race stewards have banished third-placed qualifier Nick Yelloly and 13th-placed Lewis Williamson to the back of the Valencia grid after their cars were found to have technical irregularities. Yelloly’s Carlin machine was ruled not to comply with the specified dimensions after qualifying, which was a breach of article 4.1 of the series’ technical regulations. All the motorsport action as it happens with Race Centre Live Stewards also found that Williamson’s Bamboo Engineering car did not comply with the high roll back caliper seals, which is a breach of article 1.6 of the technical rules.

BMW is virtually certain to cease its involvement in the World Touring Car Championship next year, when the series’ new technical regulations are expected to come into force. The German manufacturer last competed as a factory entrant in 2010, but has been represented by independent teams such as ROAL Motorsport, Wiechers-Sport and Team Engstler since then, while also selling its factory-produced TC engine on a customer basis. BMW’s current 1.6-litre turbocharged engine is now in its third year of racing and has powered six victories

Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski, his crew chief Paul Wolfe and the Penske team have all been penalised after his car failed a post-race technical inspection after last weekend’s race at Dover. The car was found to be in violation of Sections 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR that equipment used in a race does not conform to the rules), 20-12.8.1B, (minimum front car height) and 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the series’ regulations

Felix Rosenqvist overtook Daniil Kvyat in stunning fashion to set up his third Formula 3 European Championship win of the weekend at Spielberg and further close on the series lead. The Mucke Motorsport driver, whose result made him the first man to win three times in the series in a single round, started third on the grid and held the position through the first two corners as Raffaele Marciello and Kvyat disputed the top spot. But as the front two held each other up at the following corner, both Rosenqvist and Latifi’s superior exits brought them alongside the pair.

Auto GP squad Ghinzani Motorsport will expand to two cars and run GP2 regular Kevin Giovesi at Silverstone this weekend. Piercarlo Ghinzani’s outfit moved into the series at the start of the year following the demise of Italian Formula 3, running a single-car entry for 16-year-old Robert Visoiu.

With GP3 not returning to Monaco this year after the series held a round there for the first time last season, the FR3.5 race gives Sainz an opportunity to gain experience on the famous street circuit.

Kentucky Speedway general manager Mark Simendinger believes that IndyCar will return to the 1.5 mile oval in the future, although he cautions that there is no deal currently in the works.

But speaking at the circuit’s fan day last weekend, Simendinger said that he had no reason to believe that the track, which continues to host NASCAR, would not hold single-seaters events again in the future
