Andy Mcmillin Pre-Race Update

Hello Pit Crew,

After suffering transmission failure, in BITD Desert Series race Vegas to Reno the team and I, traveled to Plaster City to function test the suspension, transmission, shocks, light set up, and radio communications before racing Primm 300.

Our transmission failure at Vegas to Reno race began when I hit the wall at Terrible Cup III, and was high-centered on the concrete median, creating a crack in the transmission case. The same transmission was placed inside the trophy truck for the Vegas to Reno race and slowly began leaking oil, blowing the oil line and rupturing shafts. We sent the transmission to Rancho Drive-train Engineering and the crew placed a new Turbo 400 transmission inside the Trophy Truck. I am looking to have a clean race and feel confident after running well during testing. My dad, Scott McMillin, will start the first half of the race and I will drive the second half.

The 12th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 Desert Race :
Round 5, of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series will be 288 race miles, four laps of 72.0 miles each, with be six total visual checkpoints including the Start/Finish line. The race will be staged in Primm, Nevada (Nevada/California border, 45 miles South of Las Vegas), Friday and Saturday, September 7-8, 2007. More information… (SCORE

Rey takes over as president of Renault F1

Renault have appointed Bernard Rey as president of their Formula One team in place of the departing Alain Dassas.

Dassas, who presided over the team's second successive double world championship success last season, was named earlier as chief financial officer of Nissan.

Rey is currently senior vice president in the Renault CEO office and takes over at the Formula One team, run by Flavio Briatore, on September 17.

"The team is preparing to return to the highest level next season and is well-placed to do so in terms of personnel and resources," he said.

Renault are fourth in the constructors' championship with no hope of retaining the title. Neither Italian Giancarlo Fisichella nor Finland's Heikki Kovalainen have been on the podium this year.

The French carmaker announced in July a $50 million (24.8 million pounds) programme of long-term technology investment to help them fight back on the track.

Qatar to herald new era in MotoGP - racing under lights

Qatar's dream of being the first nation to hold the motorcycle Grand Prix race at night is set to come true.

The Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation declared that it would host the historic race next year at the Losail International Circuit (LIC) during the evening.

According to reports reaching here from the Misano circuit, Italy, QMMF President Nasser bin Khalifa al Attiyah announced in a press conference that the forthcoming 2008 Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar on March 9, the season opening race, would be held at night.

The project to light the entire circuit is likely to be the biggest one, even undertaken in the world for any sporting event. Musco Lighting, who will commission the floodlighting, has assured a total visibility for the race which will move to a Sunday evening slot.

Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta, Musco Lighting's President Joe Crookham and Vice-President Jeff Rogers, QMMF President al Attiyah and FIM President Vito Ippolito were all present at the press conference.

Making the announcement, Mr. Ezpeleta explained why Dorna is interested in the night race. He remarked: "Changing the Qatar race to a night time schedule allows for a better synchronization with European television schedules, where the race can be made available in the primetime Sunday slot. This is obviously a big boost for the broadcasters, and a landmark moment for MotoGP."

Al Attiyah commented from Misano in telephonic talk: "This is obviously a very prestigious project for Qatar and we are proud to say that we will hold the first Grand Prix event under lights.

The base work has already started at the LIC. Soon the strategic layout will be finalized for the lighting.

"Our focus is zeroed in on the commissioning of the project. We're are extremely hopeful the track will be ready for the landmark race," added al Attiyah.

"We're hopeful that we'll be able to finish the lighting at least one or one and a half months before the start of the race on March 9.

"Whilst this is great for the country's image as a whole, it also means our track can be used in the hot summer months and we hope this will open up more opportunities for other motor sports events in the future," said the QMMF President.

Experts in providing lighting services for racetracks and all kinds of sporting venues, Musco President Crookham described the complex system as "the biggest lighting project in the world for any sporting event."

He added: "The system will incorporate over 3700 separate light sources across every section of the circuit, which will eliminate shadowing on the track and in the run-off areas. The quality of the light is the same as any premium lighting system at any other major sporting venue. Based on our experience in other motor sports events, the riders will be able to see as well as during daytime and may even come to prefer it."

FIM President Ippolito hailed the announcement of the first night Grand Prix.

"I would like to express my thanks to the QMMF and Dorna for the hard work which has seen this project move forward. Before it was just something to talk about, but now it is very real and it is great to see MotoGP changing for the better. It is positive news for motorcycling as a whole."

The possibility of a night race at the Losail International Circuit was examined at the last year's Grand Prix when MotoGP Safety Commission members Valentino Rossi, Loris Capirossi and Kenny Roberts Jr. rode the track. But they had used only street bikes.

Spyker Agrees to Sell Formula One Team for $109 Million

Spyker Cars NV shares gained the most in more than a month after the Dutch maker of luxury sports cars agreed to sell its Formula One racing team to Indian billionaire Vijay Mallya for $109 million.

Spyker rose as much as 58 cents, or 11 percent, to 5.65 euros, the biggest intraday increase since July 24. The shares were up 7.5 percent at 9:42 a.m. in Amsterdam, giving the company a market value of 33 million euros ($45 million).

Mallya, who controls Bangalore, India-based brewer UB Group, has been granted exclusivity to proceed with due diligence, Spyker and Mallya said on Sept. 1. Spyker bought Midland Formula 1 Racing Ltd. last year from billionaire Alex Shnaider for $106.6 million. The racing team had a 13 million-euro loss in the first half, Spyker said.

Spyker dropped 12 percent to 4.61 euros on Aug. 28, the lowest since shares began trading, after the AD newspaper said creditors asked a court to declare the company bankrupt.

Dutch securities regulator AFM said on Sept. 1 it has asked the Amsterdam Court of Appeal's Enterprise Chamber for a revision of Spyker's 2006 financial accounts because of ``flaws.'' Spyker ``does not agree with the requests for restatement,'' the Zeewolde, Netherlands-based company said.


Over 200 entries from 16 States, Mexico, Austria & Germany

Over 200 entries from 16 States, Mexico, Austria & Germany

Expected at Saturday's 12th SCORE Terrible's Primm 300

Field includes 9 of 11 overall race winners, 50 drivers with 92 class wins

For Round 5 of six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series

LOS ANGELES—With over 200 entries expected from 16 U.S. States, Mexico, Austria and Germany, many of the world’s top desert racers are headed to Southern Nevada to compete in this weekend’s 12th Annual SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 desert race. In what could be the best overall field in it’s 12-year history, Round 5 of the six-race 2007 SCORE Desert Series, will be held Friday and Saturday in Primm, Nev., located 45 miles South of Las Vegas at the Nevada/California border.

Nine of 11 former overall race winners and 50 racers with a combined 92 class wins will be part of the race that will feature 18 Pro and 2 Sportsman classes for cars and trucks. With 191 official entries to date, this year’s entry list is expected to reach over 200 vehicles by the time the green flag drops.

Celebrating its 34th season this year as the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Series, the SCORE Desert Series is returning to Southern Nevada for the last of its three annual races in the U.S.

Eleven of last year’s 17 Pro class winners have entered, including four of last year’s top five overall finishers.

Two second generation desert racers, Brian Ickler, Poway, Calif., and Justin Lofton, Westmorland, Calif., are now top racers in the NASCAR Grand National Division, West Series who are returning to their desert racing roots for a weekend. Ickler, the 2003 SCORE Lite point champion and the 2003 SCORE Rookie of the Year, will split driving in Class 1 with veteran Steve Sourapas, Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., while Lofton has entered his own Class 1 entry. Ickler, who has three Grand National West wins and seven top 10 finishes this year, is currently fourth in points while Lofton, with six top 10s, is sixth with one race left on Sept. 15.

For the sixth consecutive year, the SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300 has been split into two groups with the open wheel, VW baja bug and slower truck classes starting at 6 a.m. The remaining truck classes, including the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division along with the unlimited Class 1 open-wheel desert race cars, will start at 1 p.m.

One vehicle will start every 30 seconds in the elapsed-time race with a seven-hour time limit to become official finishers. The course is a 72-mile loop starting and finishing directly behind the back parking lot of Buffalo Bill’s Resort. Vehicles will run either two, three or four laps, depending on the speed of the class.

Pre-race festivities on Friday for the SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300, including tech and contingency and the SCORE Manufacturer’s Midway, will be held from 10a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Star of the Desert Arena at Buffalo Bill’s. The post-race awards celebration will be held at the Star of the Desert Arena at 10 p.m. on Saturday.

Heading into the final two races of the 2007 season, the highly-competitive SCORE Desert Series has 21 racers separated by just 54 points in the Overall point standings after the first four events and the top five all have one driver from Southern Nevada. They are separated by just 22 points

B.J. Richardson of Las Vegas leads the Overall and Class 1 points with 284 in a Bunderson-Chevy while B.J. Baldwin of Las Vegas leads SCORE Trophy-Truck and is second overall with 281 points in the No. 1 Baldwin Motorsports Chevy Silverado. Third overall and second in SCORE Trophy-Truck with 278 points is the team of Mark Post, San Juan Capistrano, Calif./Rob MacCachren, Las Vegas, in the No. 3 Riviera Racing Ford F-150.

“This has been a tough race for us over the years, but if we can hold our own this year, we’ll be ready to battle for the Class 1 and SCORE Overall point championship at November’s SCORE Baja 1000,” said Richardson, who finished a close second in Class 1 in 2005 but had a rare did not finish in Primm last year. “It’s a great course, just what you want in a desert course, but I have to keep from being over-confident and pushing the race car to far off the edge. I will need a lot of patience on Saturday, that’s for sure.”

Fourth overall and third in SCORE Trophy-Truck is the team of Ragland/Collins with 264 points in the No. 12 Collins Motorsports Chevy Silverado and fifth overall and leading Class 1-2/1600 with 262 points is the team of L.J. Kennedy, Orange, Calif./Sammy Ehrenberg, Las Vegas, in a ChenoSPF-VW.

Bob Shepard, Phoenix, returns as the defending overall and SCORE Trophy-Truck winner in this race in the No. 82 Arciero-Miller Racing Chevy CK1500 but he has a new racing partner this year in Ryan Arciero, Foothill Ranch, Calif., who is actually the team’s driver of record this year.

Larry Roeseler, Hesperia, Calif., and Las Vegas’ Troy Herbst, who finished second overall last year (4 minutes, 15 seconds behind Shepard) and won Class 1 last year, return in the No. 100 Terrible Herbst Motorsports Smithbuilt-Ford. Tim Herbst drove the majority of last year’s race in Class 1 while Roeseler drove some of the race in the Terrible Herbst Motorsports No. 19 Ford F-150 in SCORE Trophy-Truck with Ed Herbst.

In the hunt for the prestigious overall victory as the fastest vehicle in the race, Southern Nevada racers have done very well on their home desert. Either one of the three Herbst brothers or Brian Collins of Las Vegas have won the overall title at the popular desert race five times in the first 11 years of the race. Ed and Tim Herbst, the oldest of the three Las Vegas brothers, won the overall in both 1998 and 2003 while Troy Herbst, won the overall in Primm 1999 and again 2001. In 2001, Troy Herbst had driving assistance from Larry Roeseler, Hesperia, Calif.

Collins, splitting driving with Larry Ragland, Cave Creek, Ariz., won the 2005 overall title. The Ed and Tim Herbst and Collins wins were in the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck division while Troy Herbst earned his in the unlimited Class 1.

The non-Nevadans who have won the race overall and are entered this year are Steve Sourapas (2000, Class 1), Mike Julson, Santee, Calif. (2002, Class 1), Alan Pflueger, Honolulu (2004, SCORE Trophy-Truck) and Bob Shepard, Phoenix (2006, SCORE Trophy-Truck).

Starting behind the 30 SCORE Trophy-Trucks will be the unlimited Class 1 for open-wheel desert race cars. In the first 11 years of the SCORE Terrible’s Primm 300, SCORE Trophy-Trucks have seven Overall race wins while Class 1 has four.

Behind Class 1 (38 entries), the classes with the most entries to date are: SCORE Trophy-Truck (30), Class 1-2/1600 (25), SCORE Lite (18), Class 10 (16) and Class 7 (11).

Eric Solorzano, Tijuana, Mexico, and George Seeley, Glendale, Calif., have the most class wins in the SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300. Solorzano has won Class 11 in seven of the first 11 years of this race in a VW Sedan while Seeley has six victories in Class 5 in his unlimited VW Baja Bug.

Among Southern Nevada racers, Tim Herbst and Rob MacCachren each of four class wins in this race while Colins and Ed and Troy Herbst have three class wins each.

Donald Moss, Sacramento, Calif., has four wins in Class 3 in Primm while Pflueger has three, two in Protruck and his one overall in SCORE Trophy-Truck.

Veteran racer and TV sportscaster Cameron Steele drew the first starting position in both the featured SCORE Trophy-Truck and the SCORE Lite divisions in the computerized drawing for starting positions.

In a sport where there is no qualifying or open pre-running (in the U.S.), the drawing for start positions has added significance and Steele’s No. 16 Desert Assassins Cadillac Escalade SCORE Trophy-Truck and No. 1201 VW-powered Desert Assassins open-wheel desert race car will be the first off the line in each class.

The first vehicle to leave the start line in the morning portion of the event will be Class 10 husband and wife racers Adam and Bekki Wik of Las Vegas, in a Honda-powered Jimco open-wheel desert race car. Both have one class win in this race, Bekki in 2000 in Class 1-2/1600 and Adam in 2005 in Class 10.

Starting first in Class 1 will be Todd Cuffaro. Coronado, Calif., in a Chevy-powered Porter open-wheel desert race car.

The 2007 SCORE Desert Series also includes the chase for the $75,000 Kartek Off-Road contingency bonus to be awarded to several 2007 SCORE Class point champions along with the run for the $12,000 Toyota True Grit and Toyota Milestone Awards.
