As mentioned in our H2Oi event report, off-campus meet-ups, get-togethers and cruising are becoming as important a not-to-miss than the event itself on H2O International weekend. Those savvy to discussion forums like our own H20-focused event forum, can tell you that specialty gatherings and meet-ups are a particular highlight. In as much, we headed over to Saturday’s Audi owner meet-up in the parking lot of the mall at 94th Street and Ocean City’s Coastal Highway. Needless to say, we weren’t disappointed. More…

Since the beginning of the 2014 season, the technical regulations – mainly in the chassis and the aero areas – have been identical, in the two series and from 2017, there also will be joint engine regulations: two litres, four cylinders, turbo charged. These are the key data of the new ‘Class One’ – how it will be internationally called. That was agreed upon by DTM rights holder and promoter ITR e.V., the Japanese Super-GT organisers GTA and all the manufacturers involved during a joint meeting, on 30th October in Tokyo. In addition, the American motor-racing association, IMSA, also plans to announce races according to the new Class-One regulations. More…
