Learn about the 4 Legendary racers in Moto GP history

So far, the FIM International Moto Federation has organized 5 modes, including MotoGP/500cc; 350cc; Moto2/250cc; Moto3/125cc; 80cc/50cc, and not a single driver has won all 5 formats yet. Only 4 racers have ever won 3 modes. They are Mike Hailwood, Phil Read, Valentino Rossi, and Marc Marquez.


Legendary Mike Hailwood is the first racer to appear on this list. He attended 4 modes including 125cc, 250cc, 350cc, and 500cc (there were five he joined at the same time) and won ¾ modalities. Starting from the 250cc formula championship in 1961, one year later he continued to conquer the 500cc format, in 1966 he continued to collect the championship title at the 350cc class.

In particular, this year he also won the 250cc class and almost always won the 50cc class when only finishing second, only 6 points behind Agostini. Total of Mike Haliwood 9 times (4 MotoGP/500cc; 2 350cc; 3 Moto2/250cc)


Like Hailwood, Phil Read also fought in 4 different modes and could not win only one form of 350cc. The British legend began to make his mark with the 250cc championship in 1964, the 125cc championship in 1968, and the 500cc championship in 1974.

Phil Read and Mike Hailwood themselves never competed in the 500cc class but many times in lower races. Total Phil Read 7 times (2 MotoGP/500cc; 4 Moto2/250cc; 1 Moto3/125cc)


Up to the present period, when drivers can no longer participate in many races at the same time, the chances for racers to win less and less. It took until 2001 that the third driver won the championship in 3 different formats. It’s Valentino Rossi.

Valentino Rossi

The Italian driver always won the second season, he joined that format. 1997 was the 125cc championship, 1999 at 250cc, and 2001 at 500cc. As of 2016, Valentino Rossi has 9 championships (7 MotoGP/500cc; 1 Moto2/250cc; 1 Moto3/125cc)


In the same light as Rossi’s achievement, the racer is one day behind him and is also the biggest counterweight to the current 46. That’s Marc Marquez.

The Spanish driver has an unprecedented record when he won the MotoGP championship in the first season of playing in this format in 2013. He is also the youngest driver ever to win the highest race. Before that Marquez won the 125cc class in 2010 and the Moto2 class in 2012.

Tour de France learned to improve the F1 race

For the first time in history, the Tour de France has arranged staggering lines for each other in the same way F1 racing for the 17th stage.

Section 17 has a length of 65km from Bagneres-de-Luchon to the summit of Col de Portet (Hautes-Pyrenees). This is a very special stage because it has the shortest distance in the modern era of “Le Tour”. Therefore, many people consider this to be an unofficial timing race.

Topographic map of stage 17 Tour de France 2018. Although short (65km) but very challenging, not suitable for sprinters and an opportunity for mountain climbers to score.

The only difference is that the racetrack is not flat with the starting point located at the foot of the climb to the summit of Col de Peyresourde, the first of the 3 peaks that athletes need to conquer. The last peak of Souvenir Henri Desgrange is also the destination with the level HC, the most difficult level.

According to the layout of TDF 2018, the driver holding the yellow shirt will line up first, the next 19 positions will stand behind. The rest will be divided into 4 groups spanning about 70m.

Although Geraint Thomas and Top 20 are in the top 20, stage 17 is still the stage for mountaineering kings like Quintana (Moviestar), who is the first in this stage.

“I appreciate the tournament’s refreshing effort but honestly, I don’t know what to think about what they have arranged for this 17th stage,” said Eusebia Unzue, the Movistar team manager.

Paolo Slongo, coach of the Vincenzo Nibali team, is not too keen on the improvement of BTC: “I don’t think it changes too much but if the strong crab has few teammates around, they have many advantages. Sky team is obviously a strong team and so they benefit. “

British bicycle legend Brad Wiggins commented: “It’s a good start.”

Chris Froome (Sky team), defending champion and also the main driver to do the job reluctantly, supporting teammate Geraint Thomas to protect the yellow shirt in stage 17

Due to finishing in 3rd place, Geraint Thomas not only protected the yellow jersey firmly but also increased the distance with Tom Dumoulin to approximately 2 minutes (1:59 seconds) and teammate Chris Froome 2 minutes 31 seconds in the final ranking.

Historically, TDF 1996 has had a length of only 46km, but at that time, BTC had to shorten the distance of racing because of snow.

Porsche decided to revive the legendary racing car

Marking the 50th anniversary of its most successful race car – Porsche 917, at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, the German automaker has revealed its plan to revive the car with the chassis number 001.

At the same time when they published the first image of the 917 Concept design which was very appealing.

Although there is not much information about the design. But Porsche says the show car is red – white created by a group of designers and engineers. This is to commemorate the airline’s first victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970.

However, with Porsche participating in the LMP1 racing segment, the 917 Concept just stopped at the concept design. Porsche did not specify when the 917 Concept was built.

As part of the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the 917 model, Porsche restored the first 917 model to its original state. It was like it was first announced on March 12, 1969, at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Porsche 917-001 debuted in white and green but at the Frankfurt Motor Show that same year. It was changed to Gulf’s Racing’s famous orange and blue color. After Porsche won the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970, the car was modified by Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood in September 1970.

Finally, when the 917-001 was handed over to Porsche Salzburg in October 1970. It used the colors and racing numbers of the Porsche 917 race car that won the Le Mans race earlier that year.

Interestingly, the 917-001 really never races. It is primarily used for testing at the Nurburgring track as well as on display at various events.

While restoring this historically significant vehicle to its original state was a difficult task, Porsche technicians managed to do so. Experts must first find out which material is original and can be retained. To do that, they used methods of analyzing and comparing materials with drawings and design images in history.

Lewis Hamilton: The greatest of the great racers?

After 69 seasons, the structure of the steering wheel has changed a lot, and comparisons between the ages are almost impossible.

Today’s racing cars are masterpieces of engineering rather than rudimentary to the point of not having a seatbelt like that of Fangio. Perhaps that was a factor that made Fangio great. He has won the world champions five times, in the face of death at every corner.

To win the world in a dominant race is not just to defeat your teammates. In the period 2000-2004, Michael Schumacher was the unmoved component, and the number one driver in his racing team – like Fangio in his day. Hamilton did not. He struggled with Fernando Alonso at McLaren (2007), as well as Nico Rosberg at Mercedes (2014-16).

Hamilton’s victory over Vettel this season is also a sign of greatness. Both Fangio and Schumacher won the championship without having to compete with a driver who won the world championship four times the way Hamilton made Vettel so mediocre. Of course, Mercedes is still marginally better than Ferrari in terms of engine competitiveness, but Vettel is clearly underperforming, and making more mistakes when compared to Hamilton.

Many people have compared the Hamilton – Vettel duo with Ronaldo – Messi. Vettel has a natural talent, has dominated Red Bull for four consecutive seasons, and is compared to compatriot Michael Schumacher, before being awakened by Hamilton and surpassed by great effort and will. Vettel is quite quiet, and tends to preserve privacy as much as Messi, while Hamilton is a polished face, known to many famous entertainment stars. And like Ronaldo, Hamilton rarely let his personal life affect his performance on the track.

Ronaldo once asserted that “I am number one, number two, and number three”, and always aspire to conquer milestones. Hamilton didn’t “devour” that, but he always believed that he would do it in a very natural way, and enjoy it. With the frequency of 10 championship/ season in 5 seasons with Mercedes, he can completely balance the record of 91 championships and 7 world championships that Schumacher holds after completing his current contract. now with Silver Arrow.

And perhaps, it was the best time for him to think of the 8th star, the undisputed position of the greatest driver in history.

Why is BMW not joining MotoGP? Is it because the BMW HP4 not strong enough?

Why is BMW not joining MotoGP? HP4 has a reputation for being the fastest car in the world but why not prove it on the track?

There was an interesting discussion about the reasons why BMW stars do not participate in MotoGP, the world’s # 1 motorcycle racing competition.

In addition to being a top-class motorcycle race, MotoGP is also considered a “catwalk” when automakers have to make efforts to improve their supercars to help their brand be in the top. The cars reach the finish line first.

To put it simply, MotoGP is the most cost-effective advertisement of automakers, a playground for automakers to flaunt all the technology they have on their race cars.

MotoGP racing is the place where car manufacturers show the audience the best technology on their cars.

There are many opinions that BMW cars cannot afford to compete with other supercars in the world’s leading race, so BMW does not dare to participate in MotoGP.

Stephan Schaller – CEO of BMW Motorrad once said that “BMW has enough potential to compete but we will not invest in that category”.

The CEO also emphasized that BMW Motorrad is focusing all its efforts on the research and development of highly practical cars that serve the purpose of daily commuting or experience the roads, not Must keep rolling on the track with fierce competition about technology and speed.

BMW Motorrad cars are highly practical

Ignoring BMW’s business strategy of saying no to MotoGP, many people are skeptical about the ability of BMW Motorrad-branded cars, if not for BMW S1000RR or HP4 to participate in the race, how to make the world Know this is one of the fastest cars in the world or not?

BMW HP4 – one of the fastest supercars in the world

The grandeur and fanfare of MotoGP have blurred the image of Isle of Man TT – the most dangerous racing race in the world, also known as the “death race” held annually on the island. Isle of Man, and because the race is not due to the investment of car manufacturers, BMW was lucky to appear here.

Michael Dunlop has set a new record in this race, his achievement is 16 minutes 58.25 seconds to complete 62.4 km, and the car he uses is the shark BMW S1000RR.

Cyprus organizes a racing event that runs on solar energy

Experts say the potential to develop solar powered cars in Cyprus is quite large when the country has 320 sunny days a year.

The 3-hour “Cyprus Institute Solar Car Challenge” for solar powered cars took place on June 23 in Cyprus’s Nicosia. They have been promoting the eco-friendliness of the cars participating in this race.

16-year-old Venetia Chrysostomide was one of the participants in the race with a car worth 5,000 EUR. According to Venetia Chrysostomide, solar-powered cars can help Cyprus reduce fuel consumption and air pollution.

The race organizer, Aristides Bonanos, of the Cyprus Institute research center said the participants of the race invested an average of only 8,000 EUR for their cars.

This figure is quite modest compared to the hundreds of thousands of EUR spent on cars participating in the world’s largest solar powered car race in Australia with a length of 3,000 km called the World Solar Challenge.

According to Bonanos, the goal of the race is to help the public in Cyprus realize that making solar-powered cars is relatively easy and low-cost.

This is an ambitious goal in Cyprus – one of the countries with the highest car ownership rate in Europe with 595 cars for 1,000 people (according to the European Statistical Office – Eurostat).

Experts say the potential to develop solar powered cars in Cyprus is quite large when the country has 320 sunny days a year.

Meanwhile, 2016 statistics show that of the 28,000 newly registered cars in Cyprus, only 22 run on renewable energy.

In addition, Zephyr operates entirely on solar energy. This unmanned aircraft weighs only about 75kg thanks to being made from carbon fiber.

Zephyr “absorbs” solar energy through energy panels installed throughout the wingspan up to 25 meters, thereby extending the flight time of the flight on the stratosphere.

The Zephyr project is also aiming to bring potential solutions for disaster management, monitoring and communication.

MotoGP riders are banned permanently for using doping

The WADA laboratory has found doping positive substances in the urine of driver Andrea Iannone. This driver was immediately banned by FIM from participating in all motorcycle racing.

FIM World Motorcycle Federation has just announced that MotoGP rider Andrea Iannone of Aprilla has not passed the doping test. The federation issued a decision to immediately suspend the cause of the MotoGP driver’s career until further notice.

According to a press release, Iannone’s urine samples taken at the Malaysia Grand Prix race were found to contain an unspecified substance on the Exogenous Anabilic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) ban list.

FIM said that Andrea Iannone has the right to request a re-examination of his urine sample, if he is still found to be doping positive, the driver still has the opportunity to appeal by filing an application with the Sports Arbitration Court ( CAS).

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) shared the reason for making the official announcement so far because WADA needs to perform a series of other tests to reinforce the evidence. This process takes about 2 weeks depending on the type of test done.

Andrea Iannone started his career in 2005 in the 125 cc format, but he did not stand out when he only brought 4 victories in 5 years. By 2010, the career of “The Maniac” gradually flourished when playing in Moto2 format, he ranked third overall during the three seasons from 2010 to 2012.

In 2013, the racer born in 1989 decided to jump on the MotoGP formula with Ducati racing team. However, Iannone was fired after the end of the 2016 season due to falling to 6 stages and many times endangering his teammates.

During the 2017-2018 period, Andrea Iannone played for Suzuki but did not stand out as Alex Rins. In the MotoGP 2019 season, the fate of “The Maniac” turned to Aprilla.

Is it true that the more spikes, the more traction?

The average lifespan of racing tires is only about 120 km, equivalent to a match. In racing, the type of tire used depends on the weather as well as the way the driver rides.

Many people when choosing motorcycle tires often choose the type of tire with many spikes to increase the ability to grip the road. However, if you have ever looked through the motorbike races, it can be seen that the drivers use non-spiked tires to compete. Why is this contradiction, spiky or prickly tire will have better grip?

First let’s find out the use of the grooves on common tires. In fact, the trenches absolutely do not help grip the road when driving in dry weather, but it also reduces the contact surface between the tires and the road.

Tread grooves only work when driving in the rain and slippery roads, helping to increase traction by turning water from the point of contact between tires and the road. In addition, all terrain vehicles will use special tires with very deep grooves to help increase the ability to grip the road when driving on rough terrain such as gravel, sand, etc.

Returning to the tires mounted on racing cars, the absence of tread grooves will help optimize the best possible grip on dry pavement. This allows the driver to run to his full potential without being too concerned about the grip of the tire.

In MotoGP racing, slick tire used in dry weather condition has up to 3 different options including hard (hard), medium (medium) and soft (soft) tires. Soft tires will help increase grip, but quickly reduce quality and vice versa, so riders need to carefully choose the type of tire to use for competition.

However, when competing in the rain, the riders were forced to switch to the wet tire, which has additional grooves to help turn the water. If you use this type of tire to compete when the road surface is dry, the tire quality will decrease very quickly.

Thus, in dry road conditions, the tire without spikes will grip the road better than the tire with spikes. In wet, sandy, or muddy conditions, the tread tire will be effective then make the car easier to control. The traction of the tire depends on other factors such as the soft-stiffness or the quality of the material that make up the tire. The more tread the tire, the more friction it wears and the faster it wears out.
