Wild West Motorsports Park closing, cites “unfortunate circumstances”

Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, Nevada, has hosted a variety of off-road racing series like the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Entering 2021, the track had plans to welcome two new series with Nitro Rallycross and Great American Shortcourse.

New Microsoft Flight Simulator Landing Challenge Brings You to the Beautiful French Alps

Today’s Microsoft Flight Simulator update introduced a brand new landing challenge set in the beautiful French Alps.

The challenge is set on the Altisurface Notre Dame de la Salette, a small strip of grass near the sanctuary with the same name.

As the name implies, it’s certainly challenging for several reasons, including the rough terrain and the fact that the landing strip is heavily sloped.

Klopp throws down gauntlet in pre-Real Madrid press conference: “I’m in the mood for this”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wasn’t messing around in his press conference ahead of his side’s Champions League second leg tie with Real Madrid.

Manchester United lead race for Aston Villa star with significant budget set aside by Red Devils as Villains expect ‘monster’ bid

According to Football Insider, Manchester United lead the clubs interested in Aston Villa star Emiliano Martinez, with a Villains source admitting the club are expecting a ‘monster’ summer offer for the ace.

This comes after Football Insider reported that the Argentine graduate of rivals Arsenal tops the Red Devils’ goalkeeper shopping list.

The 28-year-old has been solid between the sticks after taking the difficult but right decision to leave Arsenal after a decade at the club for an initial fee of £17m in a deal rising to a potential £20m.

Football Insider add that United have been keeping a close eye on the man bound to win a senior cap for Argentina when international football for South American nations returns.

It’s claimed that United plan to recruit two senior goalkeepers in the summer transfer window, they intend to keep academy graduate Dean Henderson but move on David de Gea and … Read the rest

An in-depth view of the La Liga title race and Barcelona’s chances

Pep Guardiola once said, “League titles are won in the last eight games.” With only eight league games remaining in 20/21, we are in the home stretch of one of the most exciting La Liga races in recent memory. Atlético Madrid sit first with 67 points; Real Madrid are second with 66; Barcelona third with 65. The champion is truly anyone’s guess. 

Compared to previous years, La Liga has been uncharacteristically unpredictable this season, with plenty of fluidity and movement in the table. No team has been consistent the entire season, resulting in what will surely be a hectic final few weeks. With the season set for an exciting finish, there is plenty to unpack.

Atlético Madrid’s Fall from Grace

Atlético’s Madrid’s season has been the textbook definition of a “fall from grace.” They started off the season sweltering and full of energy, as their typical defensive-minded approach was thrown … Read the rest

Real Madrid team news confirmed: Five first-team players miss Liverpool clash

Real Madrid have confirmed their travelling squad for the Champions League clash with Liverpool at Anfield.

Los Blancos travel to Merseyside this week ahead of Wednesday night’s evening kick-off, but will be without five of their first-team regulars.

The most notable absentee is Sergio Ramos, but fellow stars Eden Hazard, Lucas Vazquez, Raphael Varane and Daniel Carvajal join their captain on the side-lines.

Defender Eder Militao makes the cut, but is a doubt for the starting XI after feeling some discomfort during El Clasico over the weekend.

Makeshift full-back Lucas Vazquez, who played well in the reverse fixture in Madrid, has been ruled out for the remainder of the season

Liverpool star’s Barcelona ambitions set to backfire as PSG ready themselves for bid

After a woeful 2020/21 season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see one or two Liverpool players want to move on, although that’s hardly the sort of loyalty that Jurgen Klopp and the Reds fans want to see.

The German has surely built up enough credit in the role for this season to be written off as an atypical campaign, given the horrendous injury list that no team would’ve coped with, as well as the various Covid-19 protocols to deal with.
