If you missed it, here is the previous edition of FSW Weekly, the current Future Production listings, Sale Department and our Rarities Department too.

William Byron won through the usual NASCAR carnage to take the spoils for Chevrolet at the Daytona 500. The Swedish rally was a topsy-turvy affair, heavy snowfall gifting better conditions to the lower stage starters and offering the Rally2 class the spotlight of several stage wins. As top ranked drivers fell by the wayside, it was Hyundai's Esapekka Lappi's turn to triumph with Skoda Rally2 mounted Oliver Solberg coming home 5th overall. The Bathurst 12hrs proved another thriller. Like in Sweden, the weather played a big part with the rain causing several full course yellow periods and playing into the Porsche 911 traction advantage, the Manthey team finishing just ahead of the Sun Energy Mercedes museum piece that looked for a while to be on for its third straight win in the event and driver Jules Gounon, his fourth.

After the launch of the final cars from big hitters Red Bull, Ferrari, Mercedes and McLaren (not to forget Williams too), Formula 1 testing is underway in Bahrain. Around the world (except maybe in Holland) hearts sank as Max finished day one 1.1 seconds ahead of the field. Today Ferrari topped the times but it will be Friday's late in the day runs that will be the better pointer as to what we can expect for the Grand Prix in a week's time. In other event news, it is the first round of that other V8 powered saloon car championship, the Australian Supercars makes its first of two visits to Mount Panarama with the Bathurst 500. NASCAR reconvenes in Atlanta for 400 miles on the quad-oval track.
