The second Formula 1 grand prix of the season takes us to the tropics of Malaysia. Hardly any other track looks as symmetric from above, yet the Sepang International Circuit has a different challenge in store at practically every turn. Malaysia is one of the toughest races on the calendar because of the physical demands it puts on drivers. The track has high cornering speeds and above all the weather is very humid this time of year. Automotive Tv takes you on a ride around the Sepang circuit and once again Nico Rosberg from AT&T Williams joins us to give his views on the challenges ahead when competing on the Sepang GP Circuit.

Driving around London in a car - due to the city congestion charge, that isn´t always the best idea of how to spend your day. And the traffic could be another argument. Nevertheless Rallye Dakar participant and titleholder Dirk von Zitzewitz took the challenge and drove on a weekday around the city with his race Touareg. Totally fearless of course, as you can expect from a participant of the toughest race on earth. The Londoners were quite surprised.

KILLINGTON, VT. (Sept. 21-22, 2013) – Under sunny, blue skies in central Vermont, before an international crowd of 15,000, the Reebok Spartan Race World Championships crowned new male and female World Champions. Utah’s Hobie Call, 36, and Amelia Boone, 30, of Chicago, finished first and each earned a $15,000 payout. The hotly anticipated season finale with over $290,000 in cash and prizes, featured some of the world’s most talented professional obstacle course racers, Olympians, professional triathletes, and world champion trail runners. NBC Sports was on hand to capture all the action for a television special airing October 19, 2013. The men’s competitive heat featured the winner, Hobie Call who emerged from the daunting 14 mile course with a time of 3:35:56. Finishing in second place was Australian Spartan Champion Matt Murphy, 28, in 3:44:15, and Spartan Pro Team member Hunter McIntyre, 24, now residing in Pittsfield, Vt., who finished a close third with a time of 3:44:42. On the women’s side, Amelia Boone, who came in second last year, took the top spot this year with a time of 4:09:52, nearly 15 minutes ahead of the second place female finisher, Australian Spartan Champion Deanna Blegg, 44, who clocked in at 4:24:10. Rounding out the top three was Canadian National team biathlete, Olympic hopeful and 2012 Spartan Race World Champion Claude Godbout, 27, of Quebec City, with a time of 4:34:52. At the finish line, still caked in mud, Hobie Call, of Erda, Utah, said, “The course is absolutely crazy. I had to do it carefully and pace myself. I’m still in denial that I won. I’m sure I’ll be crying in a corner in a couple of hours,” he jokes. Female champion Amelia Boone, an attorney at Skadden Arps, says, “It really could have been anyone’s race. That’s what is great about these events. I went out not knowing what to expect. It was the toughest competition I’ve ever faced in a race.” The Reebok Spartan Beast race, in Killington, Vt., which will attract over 9,000 competitors and 6,000 spectators this weekend, is infamous for a half marathon worth of steep inclines, technical terrain, and challenging obstacles such as carrying 65 pound sand bags, climbing walls, and crawling through mud under barbed wire. “We continue to push athletes to new limits with our races,” said Spartan Race founder Joe De Sena of Pittsfield, Vt. “This is the toughest race we’ve designed to date, most definitely. We can’t wait to show the world what we have in store for 2014.” For more information about the race, log onto www.spartanrace****. For video, see www.spartanrace.tv.
