PWC: Grand Prix of Sonoma preview

Tight driver’s championship battles in GT, GT Cup and GTS and a potential championship clinch in GTA will be featured when the Pirelli World Challenge races in the penultimate 2016 event weekend at Sonoma Raceway, Sept. 16-18, part of the Grand Prix of Sonoma presented by Cadillac.

Fifty series drivers across four PWC classes return to the track that 27 years ago featured the first-ever World Challenge race. GT and GTA drivers will race Rounds 18 and 19, while GT Cup pilots are set to race in Rounds 17 and 18. Rounds 16 and 17 are scheduled in GTS. The race weekend marks the 17th time the Pirelli World Challenge will race at the 12-turn, 2.385-mile road course.

Long, Parente and Cooper Set for Showdown in Sonoma – GT Preview

With over 10 world–renowned manufacturers represented by some of the top drivers in the world, the GT class features some of the best sports car racing on the planet. Porsche Factory driver and former PWC 2011 GT Champion Patrick Long reclaimed the lead in the Driver’s Championship coming out of the Utah Motorsports Campus weekend after scoring a pair of thirds in Rounds 15 and 16. The Manhattan Beach, California-based driver leads the championship coming into the weekend by a slim 21 points – Long will pilot the No. 58 Porsche 911 GT3 R for Wright Motorsports. He will also look to help Porsche repeat as GT Manufacturer’s Champions in 2016 – Porsche comes into the weekend six points ahead of McLaren 119–113. Of note, Long has scored three career series GT wins at Sonoma, the most of any GT driver entered for the weekend. Additionally, a Porsche has won six times at Sonoma in the 17 races PWC has held at the northern California track – the most of any marque in the series.

Air bag update: Stop driving these cars NOW

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued an urgent call today for the owners of certain older Hondas and Acuras to stop driving those cars immediately because there is a high risk the air bag could rupture in a crash.

New test data on cars affected by the massive recall of defective Takata air bags has found that air bags in some 2001-2003 Hondas and Acuras have up to a 50% chance of rupturing, a higher risk than other cars in the recall.

The higher-risk inflators are in certain 2001-2003 Honda and Acura vehicles, including:

2001-2002 Honda Civic 2001-2002 Honda Accord 2002-2003 Acura TL 2002 Honda CR-V 2002 Honda Odyssey 2003 Acura CL 2003 Honda Pilot

“With as high as a 50% chance of a dangerous air bag inflator rupture in a crash, these vehicles are unsafe and need to be repaired immediately,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.

Foxx said these cars should not be driven unless it is to a dealer to be repaired. Unlike some other cars affected by this recall, replacements parts are available immediately to complete the recall repair.
