It’s the start of a new era for Ferrari in the world of virtual motor racing, as the FDA Esports Team becomes the Scuderia Ferrari Velas Esports Team. It signals the arrival of a new title partner, Velas, one of the most efficient blockchain networks available, known for the performance and innovation of the services it offers. The Gestione Sportiva will also be more directly involved in a field that is going through continuous expansion, as it attracts a growing young audience. Scuderia Ferrari Velas Esports Team will take part in the F1 Esports Series Pro Championship as well as some sports car championships to be announced shortly.
The new Opel Crossland Interior Design in Grey
Crisp and compact on the outside, very spacious and versatile on the inside with cool SUV looks. That is the new Opel Crossland (RRP incl. VAT in Germany from €18,995), which is the first model to adopt the brand’s unmistakeable new face, showcased just a few weeks ago by the new Opel Mokka. As with the Mokka, the new Opel Crossland dispenses with the X-appendix in its name. In addition to the design, Opel has further developed the Crossland’s chassis and steering, and added a sporty GS Line trim as well as IntelliGrip adaptive traction control. Organically integrating the grille and headlights, the Opel Vizor of the new Crossland extends in one single sweep across the front of the vehicle. The Vizor optically stretches the width and organises the fascia with a reduced amount of elements. The brand’s legendary lightning-flash emblem proudly dominates the centre. The Vizor will become a hallmark of all Opel models in the course of the 2020s with the idea of further clustering top technologies.
For Mercedes-AMG Motorsport, the turbulent 24-hour race at the Nürburgring ends with a podium result and two further top ten positions. The most successful GT3 from Affalterbach is the #7 Mercedes-AMG Team GetSpeed car: with a rousing final spurt, Maximilian Götz (GER), Daniel Juncadella (ESP), and Raffaele Marciello (ITA) secured third place overall. Further down, Jules Gounon (FRA), Fabian Schiller (both GER) and Matthieu Vaxiviere (FRA) concluded the season highlight in sixth place with the team’s #8 sister car. Tenth place for 10Q Racing Teams (#40) with Dominik Baumann (AUT), Yelmer Buurman (NED), Kenneth Heyer and Thomas Jäger (both GER) rounds out the top ten results. The 49th ADAC TOTAL 24h Race will go down into the history books of the race as the shortest running because of an interruption of over 14.5 hours. The #4 Mercedes-AMG Team HRT car that had been dominant until the red flag was out was in contention for victory after the restart but retired following an accident while in second place. With the Mercedes-AMG GT4, the performance and sports car brand scored two class wins (SP10 and SP8T) by Customer Racing Teams Schnitzelalm Racing and BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR.
Harmony at a glance. To achieve a lively interior, the CUPRA design team combined the latest in technology and sophistication in the use of colours and textures. “We relied on a neutral approach to colour, intensifying the effects and textures with the use of parametric techniques” says Sangalli. Thus, 3D effects have been created on the blue seats, with micro-perforations that reveal the copper colour beneath the surface. “This laser technique enabled us to give movement to the seat. It isn’t a static graphic effect. It shifts, it fades in and out, it seems to expand” adds the designer. Decorative stitching in the same colour on the seats and doors completes the numerous details in the brand’s signature colour.
