Renault F1 2019 car unveiled
Renault is the latest Formula 1 team to reveal its challenger for the upcoming 2019 F1 season. The new RS19 continues to carry the team’s now signature yellow and black livery, and also sports the more simplified front and rear wings that are now mandated by the new aerodynamic regulations. Last year, Renault achieved its strongest result yet since returning to F1 as a works team in 2016, with a fourth place standing in the constructors’ championship. The team will be looking to keep that momentum going for the 2019 season; a newly refurbished dyno at Viry has been commissioned and will be used throughout the season to develop the power unit. Outlining the team’s aim for 2019, Renault F1 Team managing director, Cyril Abiteboul, said: We go into this season aiming to keep this strong and measured momentum. We do not target x or y position or a number of points: what I want to see is that the team continues its trajectory of progression towards the top teams. Engine excellence will be our priority in Viry while the structure now in place in Enstone strives to improve the competitiveness of the chassis, season after season.” This year will also see former Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo join Renault alongside Nico Hulkenberg. Explaining how the new driver line-up serves as an additional motivational factor for the team, Abiteboul said:  “The added momentum of the Daniel-Nico partnership brings confidence to the team this season. I believe we have one of the strongest – if not the strongest – driver line-up on the grid.”  “Individually, they are very strong and I feel the two will complement each other extremely perfectly. The energy they have brought to the team is very tangible and I hope we can give them a car to show their considerable talent.” [...]

2019 BMW S1000RR to launch in India soon
BMW Motorrad unveiled the next-generation of its flagship superbike, the S1000RR at EICMA 2018. The update comes a decade after the first generation of the RR was launched and BMW claims that it has revised almost every component of the bike resulting in less weight and noticeably higher performance. The new S1000RR was teased on BMW Motorrad India’s social media pages and we believe it could make its way here in June 2018. While engine capacity remains unchanged at 999cc, the in-line-four engine sports an all-new design and produces 207hp at 13,500rpm and 113Nm of torque at 11,000rpm – an 8hp increase over the older bike, with unchanged torque figures. The biggest change to the powertrain is the addition of BMW ShiftCam Technology, which allows variable valve timing and valve stroke on the intake valves. As a result, the rider will have access to more performance throughout the rev band. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox equipped with an up/down quickshifter. The S1000RR also receives updates to its electronics. A six-axis IMU helps power the cornering ABS and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC). The bike also gets four riding modes – Rain, Road, Dynamic and Race. All of this can be toggled via a new 6.5-inch full-TFT display. Other upgrades come in the form of a redesigned chassis comprising lighter components and a WSBK-inspired swingarm. As a result of the new, lighter engine and frame, the bike has a 197kg kerb weight – a whole 11kg lesser than the outgoing model. The 2019 BMW S1000RR will most likely be priced higher than the outgoing model, which starts at Rs 18.05 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

Slum golf: the sport that stormed the streets of Mumbai
When a group of young caddies who worked on a golf course were told they weren’t allowed to play because of ‘exclusivity’, they got creativeAnil Bajrang Mane grew up in a slum in Chembur, a suburb of Mumbai. His home – a single 10ft x 10ftroom – was right over the wall from the 10th hole of the members-only Bombay Presidency Golf Club, which sprawls across 100 acres of land: prime real estate in a city where the average population density is 31,700 people per sq km.When Mane was just 14, he dropped out of school to become a caddie on the other side of the wall. But it wasn’t until three years later, when he was 17, that he took his first swing, when a club member handed him a 7 iron and told him to have a go. The 150-yard shot changed his life, he says: he realised golf was his shot at fame and glory, the chance of a better life. Related: Cricket is fierce in Mumbai's field of dreams Continue reading...

Honda CB300R booked for three months
At the launch of the CB300R, Honda announced that it had already received three months’ worth of booking for the street-naked motorcycle. Honda has priced it at Rs 2.41 lakh (ex-showroom, India), which puts it in the competitive entry-level sports bike segment. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, senior vice president – sales and marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, said, “Honda has put the spotlight on the growing middleweight category and motor enthusiasts across India have responded. In just 25 days since the start of bookings, the CB300R is already booked for over three months, based on our current production plan”. While this is impressive, the company hasn’t given out an exact figure. This means, there could have been a limited-production plan to begin with. The CB300R is being sold in India as a CKD (Completely Knocked Down) offering and is available across Honda’s 22 Wing World dealerships in the country for a booking amount of Rs 5,000. The company has also said that deliveries are set to begin from March 2019 onwards. The CB300R has been tweaked slightly for the Indian market. While the bike uses the same 286cc, four-valve, single-cylinder, DOHC liquid-cooled motor that is paired to a 6-speed gearbox, the India-spec engine makes 30.4hp at 8,000rpm and 27.4Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. These figures are slightly lower than the UK-spec bike and the spec sheet of the India-spec CB mentions that it makes 1hp less at 8,000rpm (instead of 8,500rpm) and 0.1Nm of torque less at 6,500rpm (instead of 7,500rpm). The Indian model also uses Michelin Pilot Street tyres instead of the Dunlops found on the international-spec model. Its kerb weight of 147kg also makes the CB300R one of the lightest motorcycles in the segment. In terms of competition, the CB300R goes up against the BMW G 310 R (Rs 2.99 lakh), KTM 390 Duke (Rs 2.44 lakh) and the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 (which start at Rs 2.50 lakh)(all prices, ex-showroom, India).
