The Mercury Cars Guide : August 15th 2009
Saturday, August 15, 2009 Aussie turns pole into an Indy win AUSTRALIAN James Davison drove brilliantly to convert pole position into an Indy Lights victory at the Mid-Ohio course last weekend. It was the second career victory for the third-generation racer and came at the same track where he scored his first Lights victory last year. Briscoe battles RYAN Briscoe’s snakes-andladders chase for the Indy Racing League crown took a slight slide at Mid-Ohio when he could only manage third place behind Kiwi Scott Dixon, who claimed the IRL record with his 20th series victory. Briscoe was also beaten by Britain’s Justin Wilson. Dixon moves into the championship lead with a 20-point margin over Briscoe. Tander stays put GARTH Tander will lead the Holden Racing Team until at least the end of 2011 after resigning with the factory Holden team for another two seasons. He has been part of the Walkinshaw Racing stable for five years, winning the V8 Supercar championship with the HSV Dealer Team before being transferred to Team Red alongsideMarkSkaife andnow Will Davison. Safari success JACOB Smith, riding a Honda CRF 450, was the overall win- ner of the 2009 Australasian Safari, with Stephen Riley and John Doble taking the auto division in a Mitsubishi Pajero. Smith led from the third stage and eventually took the overall victory from his brother Todd after seven days of competition that ended in Kalgoorlie. Saloon sensation SHAWN Jamieson became the first 2009 title winner in the Shannons Nationals series when he took the saloon car crown in round seven at Morgan Park in Queensland. Matt Kingsley is on track for the PorscheGT3CupChallenge after his fourth straight round win, as Lee Castle swept the Australian Manufacturers Championship races with his Subaru WRX STi. The Shannons Nationals move to Oran Park next month for the final major meeting at the Sydney track. Brabham second DAVID Brabham took another second place for Acura in the American Le Mans Series race at Mid-Ohio last weekend. The Australian lost his shot at first placewhenhis co-driver Scott Sharp damaged the bodywork while lapping a backmarker.

If I was Ferrari that’s what I would try to do.’’ Jordan was more outspoken in the English press about seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher’s aborted comeback, due to a neck injury from a motorcycle accident in January. ‘‘Lance Armstrong wouldn’t compete in the Tour de France if he wasn’t 100 per cent fit and Schumacher is exactly the same,’’ Jordan said. ‘‘But I am surprised it has taken this USED FORKLIFTS Vineyard/Orchard Diesel, Gas and Petrol Ph John 0408 132 756 Vineyard posts s/h, dripper lines, grape vines, and young apple trees.

Massa was hit in the face by a stray part from another car in practice for the Hungarian GP two weeks ago. He was in bad shape and initially expected to be out of racing for the rest of the season. But the talk now is that Massa may return for Monza in round 13, three events away. That’s the speculation of an often wellinformed Eddie Jordan, the former F1 team owned who is now a special comments man on Formula One for BBC TV. This week, Jordan said the raid was with JAMES BRESNEHAN long for him to make a decision. ‘‘He has the speed but not the ability to go two hours in a race with his neck after his motorbike accident. ‘‘Ferrari would have had the best medical people on the case but he is not up to the job. ‘‘We have been robbed because I wanted to see how he could cope with these young guys.’’ Schumacher described his desicion to cancel his comeback as one of the most disappointing moments of his life. ‘‘It’s a really sad moment,’’ Schumach- er said. ‘‘Probably one of the toughest that I’ve faced in my career. ’’Although I’m retired, I felt alive again and now I’ve had to cancel all this.’’ The German,whoretired at the end of the 2006 season after a 15-year career in which he won 91 races in 250 starts, said any talk of later returning to F1 was speculation. ‘‘From a purely medical point of view, there are no reasons why that couldn’t be the case,’’ he said.

He said the euphoria surrounding his return was ‘‘extreme, and so of course the disappointment is extreme, too.’’ His doctor said a fracture at the base of Schumacher’s skull prevented what could have been one of the greatest comebacks in F1. ‘‘We kept trying to keep the pain and the inflammation in check, including with drugs, but in the end it didn’t work,’’ Schumacher said. It was too early to say whether the injuries would heal enough to allow Schumacher to make a later comeback, Dr Peil said. Ferrari will now promote test driver Luca Badoer,whoSchumacher said was well-prepared to replace Massa. WANTEDCARAVAN 1980’s style, good cond, price neg.
