The upcoming Austrian Grand Prix

On Sunday the 1st of July Formula One fans will be gearing up to watch the Austrian Grand Prix on the Red Bull Ring track.

Originally founded as the Osterreichring, it hosted the Grand Prix for eighteen years from 1970 to 1987. I was rebuilt, the track was shortened and reopened as the A1-Ring where it once again hosted the Grand Prix from 1997 to 2003.  Sadly, the track was once again closed but plans to completely demolish parts of it, have it re-designed and purchased by Dietrich Mateschitz of Red Bull.  The track was reopened up on the 15th May 2011 and took back hosting the Austrian Grand Prix.

Benetton

Once owned by the Benetton Family who started their Formula One association by sponsoring first Tyrrell in 1983, then 1984 went on to sponsor Alfa Romeo and Toleman in 1985. At the end of 1985, Benetton bought the Toleman team and so the Benetton car was formed.  The car at first was made with BMW engines, then Ford, Renault and the final car were built was Playlife engines.
Benetton went on to have twenty-seven career victories from its Formula One participation between 1985 to 2001. Nineteen of these victories were won by the iconic Michael Schumacher, who also won the teams two Drivers Championships.
The team was sold to Renault in 2000 on the 16th March, the car raced with the Benetton name until 2002 when it became Renault F1 team.

McLaren MP4/2

This car was raced by two of the most famous names in Formula One racing namely Niki Lauda who won the title in 1984. Then by Alain Prost who claimed his first two championship victories in it in 1985 and again in 1986.
The McLaren MP4/2 is the only car that raced for more than a single season from 1984 to 1986.  This car was the first car on the grid in 1984 to have carbon brakes and a larger fuel tank than the other cars.  This gave it the edge over the other cars allowing for longer racing time and breaking the record in 1984 for the most wins of the season.
Twelve races were won between Alain Prost and Niki Lauda in that year with Niki Lauda beating Alain Prost by only half a point.  Making that season one of the closest championship races in the history of Formula One. The car still remains one of the most successful ones ever built in the history of Formula One with the car scoring 327.5 points and winning 22 Grand Prix’s over its three-year racing span.

Sports betting in the USA

Since 1992 sports betting has been illegal in the United States except in the States of Delaware, Nevada, Oregon and Montana.  These states were able to maintain legalized sports betting as they had already had it legalized before the US placed the ban.
In 2014 the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 was challenged by New Jersey and they won when on May 14th, 2018 the Supreme Court ruled that “the federal ban on state-sanctioned sports betting is unconstitutional”.  The case was decided in favor of New Jersey as the Supreme Court ruling lifts the federal ban on sports betting.
Expect to see New Jersey sports betting sites start to go live over the next year or so.
