Top 10 most famous supercars in the world that you may not know (Part 1)

Today, when the major car manufacturers in the world cannot meet the individual needs of each customer, the giants think about ways to help their cars become more unique and powerful.

Although born later, the car tuning industry is also growing very fast, not inferior to the supercar market. From the original models when passing the tuners’ hands, they all become different in strength or appearance.

Here, let’s take a look at the 10 most famous and big car tuning companies in the world with Supercar Magazine.

1. Brabus – Germany

Brabus was founded in 1977 by Bodo Buschmann and Klaus Brackmann in the city of Bottrop, Ruhr (Germany). The Brabus name is a combination of the names of these two founders.

Brabus was founded in 1977 in Germany

Brackmann later left Brabus to return to his old career, but Bussmann (now CEO of the company) retains the name as a way of respecting his former colleague. With a reputation as the largest tuning company in the world, Brabus processes more than 7,500 cars (mainly Mercedes and Smart) each year and has been present in more than 106 countries and territories.

Its operating principle is to maximize the power of the car by increasing the power and torque of the engine. Customers can buy a car made by Brabus or bring it by themselves and then choose the package that suits them. Either way, the service price of this company is also sky-high.

In return, the cars that go through Brabus hands will be transformed into real “monsters” and are guaranteed by Brabus for up to 3 years with all the details they upgrade.

F1 is not necessarily the most attractive racing (Part 2)

3. Daytona 500 – NASCAR

This is the most popular sports car race in America. Held in the state of Florida, the Daytona 500 is shaped like a football field but measures more than 4 kilometers per lap. And to complete the 500-mile (more than 800 km) race, the racers have to run 200 laps.

All racing cars at the Daytona 500 or other tournaments in the NASCAR system are made by three car manufacturers Chevrolet, Ford, and Toyota. To ensure fairness, the manufactured vehicles are subject to strict technical standards, so there is almost no difference.

4. Le Mans 24-hour car racing

As the name suggests, this is an endurance race. Within 24 hours, the car that has traveled the longer distance will be the winner.

Held annually since 1923 in the town of Le Mans, France, the organizers of the race wanted to bring a new breeze different from the speed competitions at that time.

Le Mans 24-hour car racing is an endurance race

Under the heat of summer, the race lasted from noon the day before to noon the next. On average, each car will have to run more than 5,000 km, 18 times longer than the current F1 race. To ensure safety, each team will have 3 drivers driving alternately.

The name of the winning car company will be associated with persistence. This is an important factor to consider for popular customers.

5. MotoGP racing

If the Isle of Man TT is attracted by freedom and adventure, MotoGP is scored by its professionalism.

With a capacity of 240 horsepower, a cylinder capacity of 1,000 ccs, the car can reach speeds of 340 – 360 km / h. The cars on the track are also special versions, not allowed to circulate on the road. If we have money, we can only buy the commercial version, since the manufacturer has reduced its power.

F1 is not necessarily the most attractive racing (Part 1)

World-famous racing “compete” directly with Formula 1 racing in terms of attractiveness as well as a fanbase.

Formula 1 is world-famous for having the fastest speed, the most expensive cost. But speed is not the decisive factor. Many spectators complain that the F1 races are quite boring and lack of competition, they want something new and more attractive. Therefore, many races were born to suit the tastes of each audience group.

NASCAR race

Here is a list of the most attractive racing in the world besides Formula 1 racing.

1. Isle of Man TT – Death race

For motorcyclists, this is a race not to be missed. Held annually on an island between England and Ireland, Isle of Man TT brings the audience unprecedented excitement that no race can achieve.

The drivers will conquer the race with a total length of 365 km with 6 laps around the island. The track has up to 264 curves and almost no protective barrier, many locations even have stone walls, extremely dangerous obstacles.

The average speed of the racers is always maintained at 200-300 km / h. In the Isle of Man TT, superior technology is not enough, to win the racer must also have recklessness and bravery.

Due to the high risk of the race, the Isle of Man TT is also known as the “death race” because no athlete dies every year. Up to now, the total number of deaths has reached 252 people. Even spectators are at risk of serious injury.

2. Cross-country racing in Paris Dakar Rally

Besides famous car racing like Formula 1, Paris Dakar Rally is also an attractive competition for car racers. It began in 1977 when French driver Thierry Sabine was lost in the middle of the Tenere desert while making the race from Abidjan to Nice.

Immersed in the desert, he realized that endless stretch of sand would be the ideal place for amateurs like him to have the ability to test endurance. When he returned, he devoted the rest of his life to building the Paris Dakar Rally race today with his associates.

Cars participating in the race must be modified to increase off-road performance

On the sprint, the drivers have to pass 800 to 900 kilometers of the road a day in the harsh desert terrain. Many of them are just amateurs and can’t get to the finish line. Since 2009, for security reasons, the race was transferred to Argentina and Chile.

Italian Grand Prix 2020: Pierre Gasly championship amid many shocks

The Italian Grand Prix 2020 is not only the last F1 tournament that sticks to the Williams family but also happens to many surprises.Before the Italian Grand Prix 2020, many people must have been confused about the 24-year-old French racer Alpha Tauri. But after winning the Italian Grand Prix 2020, he is probably better known.

And even Alpha Tauri is contagious. Because this team has just been renamed. Last year, Alpha Tauri was also named Toro Rosso – “sister” of Red Bull. That was when Red Bull downgraded Pierre Gasly to race for this Italian-based F1 team.

Unexpectedly on a crazy race day in Monza, Pierre Gasly finished first at the Italian Grand Prix, despite starting at 10th. In contrast, Lewis Hamilton only finished seventh due to a 10-second penalty, despite winning 6 of the last 7 Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton finished 7th due to the deduction of points

However, the top spot of Hamilton’s chart is still as solid as the table with Carlos Sainz of McLaren and Lance Stroll of Racing Point occupying the 2nd and 3rd place.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen had no points due to giving up due to a machine failure. Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas surprisingly only finished fifth, so Hamilton maintained a safe point distance.

Charles Leclerc type car crash

Ferrari continued to have the Grand Prix failed with Charles Leclerc having a car crash in the middle of the road, while Sebastian Vettel failed to win at just 6 laps.

Lewis Hamilton took the pole with a record fast lap

Lewis Hamilton continues to prove to be Mercedes’ biggest prop at the 2020 Italian Grand Prix while Ferrari continues to be in crisis.

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas have just helped Mercedes continue to dominate when they occupy the first two places of the Italian Grand Prix 2020 qualifier. Not only that, but the British racer also has a lap with a record fast time at Monza: 1 minute 18,887 seconds.

So Hamilton extended the record to occupy the pole to 94 times, take the pole in 6 out of 7 races and take the pole for the 7th time in Italy. Meanwhile, Mercedes has occupied the pole 8 times in a row this season.

Ferrari continued to bog down with both Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc bouncing out of the Top 10. This means that for the first time at Monza since 1984, Ferrari has no runner in the Top 10.

Gasly won the championship at the Italian GP

Mercedes made a serious mistake with Hamilton, then Pierre Gasly of Alpha Tauri finished first in the race with a series of events in Monza on September 6.

Gasly won the championship at the Italian GP

The victory after twelve years of waiting for Alpha Tauri – formerly the Toro Rosso team – on the Monza race made the Italian Grand Prix 2020 become one of the most memorable and shocking races in F1 history. The last time Red Bull’s B team won first place was also at Monza when Sebastian Vettel scored.

Two times of safety vehicles appeared in a row at the end of the first half, pushing Mercedes into a difficult position and causing world champion Lewis Hamilton to make mistakes. The golden opportunity was placed on Gasly, who was once disgraced at Red Bull, and the 24-year-old French racer made full use of it, finishing first with a record 36 minutes 39,174 seconds.

Gasly was overjoyed and crying on the podium

The first starting advantage with the remarkable W11 gives Hamilton easy control over the race and continually increases the distance with the back group at the first third of the race. By the 20th round, the distance between the Mercedes star and the second runner, Carlos Sainz Jnr (McLaren), was more than 12 seconds.

In the 20th round, Kevin Magnussen’s car broke down and had to stay on the side of the track, the safety car was deployed to serve the cleaning. The safety vehicle appears just before the optimal time for pit racers.

At this point, Mercedes made a mistake and caused Hamilton to lose his 90th victory when he called Hamilton to change the tire as soon as the safety car just went to the track without realizing that at that time the car was banned from the pit.

In the first group, Stroll missed a chance to win when a bad start and fell behind Gasly and Sainz in the next round. Sainz also quickly surpassed Raikkonen to chase after Gasly to win first place. But While trying to reach the last seconds, the Spanish driver still could not catch up with his opponent, so he accepted second place.

With the strange trio Gasly, Sainz, and Stroll on the podium, Mercedes is absent from the top three for the first time this year. This is also the first time since 2014, the big three Mercedes, Red Bull, and Ferrari do not appear on the podium.

Lewis Hamilton easily finished first in the Belgian GP

F1 champion Lewis Hamilton outstripped teammate Mercedes Valtteri Bottas to finish first on the Spa-Francorchamps race on August 30.

Hamilton completed 44 laps in 1 hour 24 minutes 08,761 seconds and was 8.448 seconds faster than runner-up Valtteri Bottas. This parameter does not fully show the superiority of British riders. Only thanks to the appearance of safety cars, while Hamilton focused on keeping the tires in the final stage, did Bottas not fall too far behind in Catalunya two weeks ago.

Winning 89 in F1 career helped Hamilton close to the record 91 first leg of the legendary Michael Schumacher. He also removed 48 and 50 points from his main opponents, Max Verstappen and teammate Bottas. If he can maintain his current form, Hamilton will soon win this season a few races ahead.

Hamilton finished first at Spa-Francorchamps was the predicted outcome when his qualifying round performance showed the British driver’s W11 was faster than Bottas’s by more than 0.5 seconds per lap. Although Bottas started right behind his teammates, Bottas could not intimidate the first place, and control of the race was entirely in Hamilton’s hands. Bottas almost became an obstacle to Verstappen, rather than a threat to his English teammate.

Hamilton easily outstripped teammate Bottas

There were a number of developments that seemed to change the course of the race. Antonio Giovinazzi lost control of the Les Fagnes curve, dragging George Rusell into an accident and gave up, making the car safety deployed in lap 11. But the order in the first group did not disturb too much. At the end of the race, the risk of rain appearing or Hamilton complaining about the right front tire did not pose a threat to the top.

Sebastian Vettel was even surpassed easily by his former teammate – old general Kimi Raikkonen (Alfa Romeo), so he only finished 13th. Prodigy Charles Leclerc was even worse when he only finished 14th despite starting on teammates. The disastrous 2-pit strategy caused the Monaco driver to struggle in the last group before he could climb to 14th in the last seconds. Most likely the two SF1000s will continue to have embarrassing performances on the Monza home track next week.

Hamilton won the pole at the Spanish Grand Prix

British F1 driver Lewis Hamilton defeated his teammate Valtteri Bottas in the qualifying round on August 15, to win the starting right on the Catalunya race.

Not only won the pole at the Spanish GP, previously, Lewis Hamilton also won GP Styrian.

The 1 minute 15,584 second result performed by Hamilton was only 0.059 seconds faster than Bottas’s performance. Red Bull Max Verstappen star was left behind for 0.708 seconds but still easily won the right to start third, just ahead of Sergio Perez – Racing Point racer who returned after two stops due to coronavirus infection.

Ferrari continued to have a pretty bad starting record with Charles Leclerc starting only ninth, two places ahead of teammate Sebastian Vettel.

Catalunya first held the F1 race in mid-August instead of the usual May. The racing teams continued to struggle with hot weather, the track surface temperature sometimes reached 47 degrees Celsius, making tire retention still an important issue for the teams.

The first two qualifying rounds (Q1 and Q2) were not a big surprise except that Vettel continued to be eliminated early from Q2, although Ferrari changed the chassis to overcome difficulties for him from this stage.

The German driver almost entered Q3 when he was less than 10th place with 0.002 seconds. The 15 riders in Q2 all used soft tires for the best performance, except for the old general Kimi Raikkonen who used the medium tire.

Major developments of the Spanish Grand Prix 2020

By Q3, Bottas appeared on the track with soft tires earlier than his teammates and achieved 1 minute 15,643 seconds in the first run to temporarily take the first place. But Hamilton quickly climbed to No. 1 when he achieved impressive results 1 minute 15,584 seconds.

Verstappen only reached 1 minute 16,292 seconds and temporarily took third place. Meanwhile, after the first run, Leclerc ranked seventh with the result of 1 minute 17,297 seconds.

In the second run of Q3, Bottas continued to run ahead of Hamilton, but the Finnish driver’s 1-minute 15,659 result still lacked his personal achievement in the first run. It seems that the surface quality of the track has deteriorated, so Hamilton and Verstappen have not improved their achievements and the final top 3 order remains the same as the first run.

The McLaren duo improved their results in the second run, causing Leclerc to drop to ninth place, starting just before Pierre Gasly (Alpha Tauri). Carlos Sainz’s achievement was 0.04 seconds faster than his teammate, Lando Norris also surpassed only 0.003 seconds above Leclerc.
