Classic Rally – Otago Rally Tue, 23 Nov 2021 19:45:00 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Classic Rally – Otago Rally 32 32 WRC November 10 update to add the Acropolis rally arriving November 25th – GTPlanet Tue, 23 Nov 2021 19:45:00 +0000

The next update for WRC 10th arrives on November 25th and brings – as expected – the EKO Acropolis Rally of Gods 2021 with it.

It’s part of the update roadmap released by KT Racing ahead of the game’s launch in September. We saw the first part of it punctually in October 2021 with the Ypres rally, along with new cars and new historical content.

The November update will also include a new rally car and some historical content, but the headline of the update is the new rally event in Greece.

A popular venue on the World Rally Championship calendar, the Acropolis event is named after what used to be the starting line: the Acropolis itself in Athens. It has been part of the WRC since it was founded, was only missing from the calendar in 1974 due to the oil crisis and was demoted to a junior lap in 1995 and 2014-2020. In fact, it was part of the WRC’s predecessor, the International Manufacturers’ Championship.

Although the rally has changed a little over the past 50 years, moving from a 500 mile long distance event to a modern day sprint event, the backdrop is largely the same. It’s a gravel rally that runs some of the spectacular mountain roads in southeast Greece through a geologically active region and heavy mining activity that can make for some spectacular dust.

A version of the Acropolis rally already exists in WRC 10th, as part of the game’s historical modes, in which you recreate classic stages from the 49-year history of the WRC. However, this update will bring a full nine-stage rally based on the modern route when it arrives later in the week.

The November update will also add five new rally stages in historical mode, as well as a new car whose identity will remain under wraps for the time being. There will also be an update to Clubs mode and a number of new stickers for the game’s livery editor.

We’ll bring you more about it as soon as we get it, but as things stand, the November update is set to arrive on Thursday, November 25th at 0900 UTC.

If you haven’t picked up yet WRC 10th, it will be available at a 45% discount on the PlayStation Store during Black Friday events on PlayStation 4 and at a 50% discount on Xbox platforms.

Henry Ruggs III misses the daily alcohol check and is recalled to the Las Vegas Court after a fatal crash Thu, 18 Nov 2021 22:13:04 +0000

A judge has ordered former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III to appear in court next week after missing a mandatory alcohol test. Ruggs’ attorneys appeared on behalf of their client on Wednesday, arguing that the 22-year-old had proven “dutiful” and “self-tested shortly after the missed test” last weekend. A lawyer attributed the omitted test to faulty test equipment. “It doesn’t matter,” Justice of the Peace Suzan Baucum answered. “He still missed it.” Ruggs has to appear before her next Monday.

Court records showed that Ruggs, who is accused of causing a fatal accident after driving drunk at speeds of up to 156 mph on November 2, missed a check-in at 4:41 pm on Saturday. He completed a “customer-initiated remote breathing test” at 6:28 pm. It was previously reported that Ruggs was subjected to alcohol tests four times a day while under house arrest. Any missed or dirty test, said the bail judge said would result in Ruggs being arrested again. At Wednesday’s hearing, Baucum also denied a motion from Ruggs’ attorneys seeking fire department records of the crash that started a fire that killed 23-year-old Tina Tintor and her dog Max.

Pakistan: Classic Car & Classic Car Show in Islamabad a complete success Wed, 17 Nov 2021 08:05:14 +0000

ISLAMABAD: Lovers of old classic cars stormed to the Vintage & Classic Car Show on Tuesday, which featured 35 old and classic cars – some of them quite old and even from pre-Pakistani times.

The “Heritage on Wheels” was organized by the Vintage and Classic Cars Club of Pakistan (VCCCP) in cooperation with the Islamabad Serena Hotel.

These old beauties could hardly be described and you could see the visitors taking selfies and touching them in disbelief.

The Amilcar, manufactured in France in 1922, was the oldest at the fair; others were the UK-built 1954 Austin Healey, the 1955 TR, the US-made 1955 Ford Thunderbird, a blue Rolls Royce (1972 model), a dark green Mazda 818 (1971), a red Mustang Ford (1965) , a baby Mercedes 190 SL and a MG TD kit car (1952).

Rehan had driven all the way from Karachi to Islamabad in his 1971 Mazda 818, a green beast. My family is traveling with me and it’s been a joyous ride, said Rehan. My wife and children travel with me too, he said.

Yousuf Rao, owner of the MG TD Kit Car, said, when asked whether owning and maintaining a classic car is an expensive hobby, he works in the gold and jewelry business and has a number of other classic cars besides Kit Car Volkswagen, Beatle and Moped Bike.

A monster that drew everyone’s attention was the “64-1 / 2 Mustang Ford”. That car and the Impala Chevrolet belonged to Senator Dr. Shehzad Wasim, who owns a large collection of classic and vintage cars, told Samuel Yaqoob Dr. Wasim’s assistant at the auto show.

Nationwide auto show

Mohsin Ikram, chairman of the Vintage and Classic Cars Club of Pakistan, said the club was founded around 30 years ago to attract car enthusiasts across Pakistan and promote the “Heritage on Wheels” hobby.

We have exhibited our cars at various classic car shows around the country, he said, adding that they recently presented their classic cars at the Bala Hisaar fort.

He said the purpose of the event is to showcase these beautiful vehicles to the public and promote a soft image of Pakistan.

He cherished classic car owners for their passion in preserving these vehicles as cultural artifacts and celebrated the fact that a mother drove her family out of Karachi that year.

Some of our cars, he said, had a rich history – one of them (Packard 1929) was kept by the Maharaja of Patiala, another (Lincoln Continental 1947) was driven by King Zahir Shah of Afghanistan, etc.

Aziz Boolani, CEO of Serena Hotels, said the event was part of the hotel’s cultural diplomacy.

They were driven as part of the 11th VCCCP Karachi to Khyber Classic Car Rally 2021 and will leave for Peshawar on Wednesday for the final stage of the rally.

Take a look at the handcrafted interior of the Radford Lotus Type 62-2 Thu, 11 Nov 2021 01:07:42 +0000

Radford was once a luxury coachbuilder in the mid-20th century before gradually disappearing from view. The name was revived, however, by a team that included Jenson Button and Ant Anstead, with the Radford Lotus Type 62-2 the new company’s flagship product. This week, Radford announced that the limited edition sports car will have a bespoke interior designed in collaboration with luxury watch maker Bremont to complement the vehicle’s sleek retro styling.

The aim was to adopt the lightweight ethos of the Lotus brand as the car is based on an Evora platform and is inspired by the original Type 62 racer. For this purpose, a lot of carbon fiber is used from the A-pillars to the headliner to the floor, which offers a modern aesthetic that is both sports car-friendly and high-end feeling.

The design is meant to keep drivers comfortable and focused as they stretch the legs of the car, which comes with a 430-horsepower supercharged V6 in classic guise shared with the Lotus Emira. The Radford Gold Leaf models are increased to 500 hp. In the meantime, the limited edition of twelve John Player Special models is being equipped with an improved compressor that takes up to 600 hp on the flywheel.

Bremont’s influence can of course be felt strongly in the design. Nick English, Bremont co-founder, takes pride in the company’s work on the interior. “We are delighted to have been asked to design a beautiful mechanical rally timer with stopwatch and clock for the interior of this car, all exquisitely designed in the UK, just like the Radford Lotus Type 62-2 itself,” said English dual dials are big, bold, and bold, and unmistakable wherever they stand out on the dashboard.

Looking back at the past, Radford Design Director Mark Stubbs wanted to pay tribute to the brand’s history. “I always wonder what would Harold have done?” Stubbs said, referring to the original company’s owner, Harold Radford. “We want it to be still a Lotus Type 62-2, but with expert craftsmanship and the best available materials that don’t take away from a lightweight sports car driving experience,” adds Stubbs.

To achieve this goal, much of the interior has machined, milled and turned surfaces on metal parts that give the car a handcrafted, high quality feel. The manual transmission receives an exposed linkage for the gearshift lever with lots of shiny metal parts and the dashboard carries a number of powerful toggle switches.

As the driver’s primary interface with the road, the steering wheel itself is beautifully simple, a three-spoke design with a bold R for Radford right in the middle. It is paired with clean, simple controls so as not to detract from the vehicle’s puristic character. The seats, meanwhile, are real racing shells, complete with belts and embossed metal plates with the Lotus word mark.

While the design is primarily meant to be reminiscent of the era of the original Lotus Type 62, the technology has actually advanced. There’s a main digital display in front of the steering wheel, and instead of the traditional rear and side mirrors, cameras and screens do the job. There is also a magnetic phone dock with wireless charging, but this can be deleted for drivers who want an “uninterrupted” driving experience.

Litecoin hits 6 month high as LTC price rises 20% in 24 hours Tue, 09 Nov 2021 10:15:37 +0000

Litecoin (LTC) posted daily gains of nearly 20% on Nov. 9, its highest level for LTC / USD since May 2021, amid a broader cryptocurrency market rally that analysts attribute to inflation fears.

The 14th largest digital asset rose just over 25% in three days, pushing its price to nearly $ 250 on Coinbase. Meanwhile, the total value of cryptocurrencies reached nearly $ 3 trillion, the highest level ever.

Bitcoin influence

Litecoin’s ongoing price rally was inspired by similar upward moves in major digital assets, data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro shows.

Bitcoin (BTC), the world’s leading cryptocurrency by market capitalization, rose to a new record high of over $ 68,500 on Tuesday. Ether (ETH) also hit an all-time high of over $ 4,840.

Nonetheless, few top alternative cryptocurrencies (Altcoins) outperformed Bitcoin in the past 24 hours, including Litecoin. Data provided by Messari showed that the heavily traded LTC / BTC instrument rose nearly 14%, suggesting an increase in capital migration from Bitcoin to Litecoin markets.

The pair’s technical outlook indicated further gains based on a classic bullish reversal pattern known as the falling wedge.

Falling wedges start high but contract as price moves down. A bullish confirmation comes when the price breaks above the upper trendline of the wedge. Analysts typically interpret the breakout as a signal for a rally towards the profit target, which is the maximum height of the wedge.

Recent Litecoin gains broke above the upper trendline of the falling wedge, opening the prospect of additional upside potential.

The profit target is around 0.006122 BTC. On the flip side, the Litecoin chart has seen bearish divergence between its rising prices and falling volumes over the past three weeks, underscoring that the falling wedge breakout movement could be weakening.

Another Litecoin wedge, but bearish

Litecoin price in US dollars has rebounded more than 150% after hitting its low near $ 103 on July 20, as its rise is due for a hiatus.

Called the ascending wedge, the pattern is the complete opposite of the descending wedge. It starts further down, but begins to shrink as the price rises. Bearish confirmation comes when the price drops below the lower trendline and then moves to levels with a length equal to the height of the wedge.

Depending on the level from which Litecoin initiates its negative breakout, the wedge target can shift between $ 117 and $ 21.

Conversely, a critical breakout above $ 250 would risk invalidating the rising wedge pattern and getting LTC on track to test $ 300 as its next target price.
