Review: Viaterra Essentials bag review
If you tend to travel frequently with your helmet as hand luggage you’ll want to invest in something safer and more convenient to carry it around in than the standard cloth bag that most helmets ship with. This is where the Viaterra helmet bag comes in. It is essentially a helmet-shaped bag with a flat bottom and a decent level of padding all around to protect the helmet from small bumps and impacts. It is quite large and can hold nearly all full-face helmets. It will take an MX helmet, too, if you dismantle the peak. The top of the bag folds down when not in use, making it fairly compact to stow away. The bag is constructed out of a durable 300D ripstop material and triple-stitching at stress points adds to the toughness quotient. The inside around the visor area is lined with a soft material to avoid scratches and there’s also a mesh pocket at the bottom to store a balaclava or any small items like spare ear plugs, etc. Overall, the materials used are of a high quality and the bag feels reassuringly durable. The bag closes using a long YKK zipper with dual sliders, extending nearly all the way around the diameter of the helmet, making it easy to get it in and out. You can either carry the bag by a rubberised grab handle at the front or by using the removable shoulder strap. Both feel strong and sturdy, but I’d have liked to see a dual grab handle, one on either side of the zipper, as this will help prevent disaster in the unlikely event of a zipper failure or the more likely case of forgetting to close the zipper in the first place. At about Rs 2,000, this bag is a little expensive, but I’m happy with the level of protection it offers my helmet. It feels worth the money. Where: viaterragear.com  Price: Rs 1,999 [...]

Spa F3: Jehan Daruvala wins Race 1 from pole
Sahara Force India Academy racer Jehan Daruvala claimed his first victory of the 2018 FIA Formula 3 European Championship, winning Race 1 at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Daruvala started the race from pole position and consolidated his win with a fastest lap as well. After a poor getaway from pole position in Race 1, Daruvala found himself in third place at the exit of Eau Rouge on lap one. He managed to climb up to second place before a safety car period came into effect, owing to an incident further down the field. Once racing resumed, Daruvala passed Alex Palou for the lead, and then pulled away to achieve a comfortable win with a 3.2sec gap. Estonian driver Ralf Aron rounded out the podium in third, finishing 11.9sec behind Daruvala. “The start was not ideal, but I kept my cool as I knew we were quick. Once I was ahead, I just had to make sure I made no mistakes. A lot of credit goes to the team for all the effort that they have put in,” commented Daruvala. The Carlin racer then backed up his race win with another strong showing in Race 2, climbing from his 12th place starting position to finish on the podium, in third place. He crossed the line just behind Fabio Scherer, while Dan Ticktum stormed from 10th on the grid to win the race. Daruvala’s third place finish in Race 2 marks his fifth appearance on the podium this season, and he now sits fifth in the drivers’ championship. The 19-year-old is enjoying his strongest weekend in the class so far, and will be starting Race 3 from fourth on the grid. [...]
