Valentino Rossi Harbours High Hopes for Successful Appeal to Fight for 2015 Title

Until Friday, Valentino Rossi will not be receiving any word about whether he will be fighting for his championship of the 10th racing world championship during the MotoGP’s season finale that is set for this weekend at Valencia.

As it stands, Rossi is an impressive seven points ahead of his Yamaha counterpart Jorge Lorenzo. This is a fact that has been eclipsed by the feud over his clash incident with Marc Marquez that took place in Spain and which saw the Honda rider fall out of the race as a result.

UPDATE: Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo was crowned MotoGP world champion for 2015 at the Valencia Grand Prix as Valentino Rossi failed in his task of finishing 3rd or better after being penalised for a previous race incident.

When Rossi came out to respond to concerns, he said that it would definitely be an extremely intense but important weekend ahead. He also stated that he is so glad that there would be so many fans in Valencia to witness this great race and also promised to do his best on the track.

It’s the off-track drama though that will be dominating the event. MotoGP issued Rossi a penalty over his incident with Marquez to which he is now seeking a stay of execution as part of an appeal. This Friday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport will deliver its ruling on Rossi’s appeal for a stay. If he is successful in this venture, it would mean that regardless of the final results of his appeal, the penalty wouldn’t be applied at the Valencia race event at all. Rossi views the incident as mild and is confident he will remain in contention for the title.

Valentino also expressed himself saying that he is just focusing on what will happen on the track on Sunday and that his major goal is to work on his best capabilities in tandem with his team to get the most out of every session they had. He also said that he wanted to throw himself into the race with vigour and express himself in the best way he knows how and as best as he possibly can both for himself and for his fans that continue to believe in him and lend him their unfailing support.

Most fans and stakeholders are acknowledging the fact that it still is not a done deal that Lorenzo will be the world champion after all. This is all while considering the fact that Rossi will be beginning at the back of the grid. There is so much faith that despite Rossi’s pending appeal, he will rise above the fray like he always does. As with most races in the season, tyres are going to play a pivotal roll in the race. Valencia is going to be the testing ground for the new Michelin tyres that will be the sole championship tyre supplier for the 2016 season. Chinese tyre company DTL Tyres suggested that the profiles of the tyres are no longer the question for riders but the rubber compound still needs to be decided on.

Decidedly though, Rossi has his work cut out for him. This is considering the fact that MotoGP has an on-standing point system that pays down to the rider who crosses the finish line in 15th place. This therefore is where Rossi must endeavour to finish thereby ensuring his win of the championship over Lorenzo depending on where his nemesis finishes the race.

Analytically speaking, Rossi is looking to be the 2015 champion if he finishes in third or better position. If he finishes fourth or in a lower position, he could be looking at a possible tie with his counterpart Lorenzo or an outright loss if he is too far back in the field.

With this upcoming race, MotoGP is looking to put a lid on the long-standing squabble existing between the two riders Rossi and Lorenzo. At the end of the ruling and race, the better skilled man among them will come out on top for the whole world to see. The added perk is the winner gets to bag the championship medal for his efforts and skills. It’s a win-win situation for MotoGP either way it goes. Everyone will just have to cross their fingers and wait for the action.

Muscle & Classic Car Shows in Australia

wing tail lightClassic and muscle car shows are very popular in Australia. These events provide a lot of entertainment for every member of the family, especially those who LOVE cars! When you visit any of these shows, you will get the opportunity to look at some of the most stunning classic cars in the country, all meticulously restored, maintained, and buffed by their proud owners.

What Makes Classic Cars Classic?

The cars built between 1946 and 1985 make up many of the classic cars you see at the shows today. These cars have some unique qualities that are not found in other cars. They have a power clutch, automatic lubrication systems, power brakes, engine displacement, and luxury accessories. If a car does not have these qualities, then to some,it is not a classic. Many shows will incorporate later makes and models into the one car show so it is not uncommon to see new vehicles and pre WWII vehicles as you stroll around the exhibition.

chev bel air classic carWhen you visit a classic and muscle car show, you will be surprised at the price of these rare cars. They are highly priced because of the unique aesthetic qualities they have. Billion dollar business people love the cars and purchase them mostly for luxury, although many owners are restorers who have built the car as a hobby from the ground up. Often with just the bare bones of the original. http://ccclassiccars.com/ have an extensive collection of classic cars for sale with cars ranging from $29,000 all the way to up half a million dollars!

When the Second World War ended, manufacturers of these cars decided to modify the classic cars and change the styles. They made some improvements in the engines and other important parts.vintage pre world war car

The newly developed classic cars were mostly used in the old Hollywood movies. The advanced cars had a removable trunk, headlights, and other essential accessories. However, the classic cars had low speed. Some of these cars were never mass-produced, and you will only find them in some of the larger classic car shows around the world. More classic cars like the T-Model Ford were introduced later in the 19th century, and the manufacturers of this brand are currently making high-speed vehicles. They are famous everywhere in the world.

When you visit the classic car shows, you will note that the cars do not prioritize safety. When you decide to purchase this type of car, you have to be very careful while driving. Many of the cars do not have seat belts, they lack crumple zones, and they do not have roll-over protection. When you compare the brake performance with the current standards, you will also find that they are poor. A driver has to be extremely careful and control the speed of the car at all times. More often than not, the spare parts for classic cars are scarce, and is the main reason that using the vehicles daily is discouraged in some countries.

The Volvo Amazon is one of the most iconic classic cars ever built. It was a piece of great work famous in 1956. The company manufacturing these cars prioritized safety on most of its range with the Volvo Amazon being the first classic car to have seat belts. To this day, the Amazon are still frequently used, proving that they are entirely reliable. If you decide to buy this car, you will notice that its accessories such a headlights and brakes are available for replacement when the car is damaged. These qualities have made the Amazon a very successful classic car. This model, and many others from the Volvo range are found in classic car shows around the globe.

Classic cars have antique value in the market as the originals cannot be replicated as the factories that made them no longer exist. If you would like to get one for yourself, you can find them in showrooms, and in old car museums. Most of the time, they are bought for use on special occasions and for the lazy Sunday afternoon drive. Nowadays, many weddings use these cars. If you are not able to buy the car because of the high prices, you can just hire it for a day or two for the occasion. Bel Air 1957 classic cars
