Carsten Theile wins V8 Cup & Trophy Series
21 November 2014
Carsten Theile wrapped up both the 2014 V8Thunder Cup Series and Autumn 2014 Trophy Series segment with a win at Homestead-Miami Speedway tonight.

Homestead Preview
18 November 2014
After 35 weeks of hard racing, thrills and spills the V8Thunder circus rolls into the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida for the Final round of the 2014 V8Thunder Series.

In terms of the V8Thunder Trophy Series it is once again congratulations to Germany's Carsten Theile who just needs to start at Homestead to claim another title.

The chase for the cup however....is very much alive...

16 drivers battled through 3 elimination rounds over the last 9 weeks but now only 4 drivers remain to battle it out for the Cup series championship this week.

Carsten Theile has been the seasons outstanding performer, notching up an incredible 24 victories this season and rarely finishing outside the top 3.

Chris Hill locked himself into the Final four with a win last week at Phoenix. His performances have improved as the season has gone on, winning 6 races all in the second half of the season, and has always been there or thereabouts at the end of races.

Kelvin Mace has been Mr Consistency all year long, driving brilliantly and despite having not won a race all season, he always managed to bring his #47 Ford Fusion home with a good finish. If he is to hold the trophy when it is all said and done on Thursday however, he will likely have to find a way to victory lane.

Ian Smythe has defied the odds all through the chase so far, having stared elimination in the face on 2 occasions. Despite this, a strong 2nd place finish at Phoenix last week cemented his place in the final four. With 3 wins in the book already this season, look for Smythe to be right up there all night at Homestead.

....And so it comes down to this.....1 race, 4 drivers....whoever crosses the line first out of these 4 at Homestead will be crowned the 2014 V8Thunder Cup Series Champion, not only that, but they have to do it all in the knowledge Homestead is the longest race on the schedule all season.

Final 4 confirmed after amazing Phoenix race...
13 November 2014
The final 4 drivers who will battle it out for the 2014 V8Thunder Sprint Cup Series next week at Homestead-Miami Speedway are now confirmed after a thrilling final eliminator round at Phoenix International Raceway in Arizona.

Carsten Theile is the #1 seed thanks to his two wins at Martinsville and Texas. Second seed is Chris Hill after his win at Phoenix and third is Mr Consistent, Kelvin Mace, who qualifies on his points total for the Eliminator Rounds. Last driver to qualify is Ian Smythe, who needed to finish 3 places ahead of Ruben Hornacek at Phoenix to race his way in. The 42 year old from Surrey had muscled his way into the lead from his third place starting spot by turn 2 on the opening lap and went on to lead 135 of the 156 laps. On a late race restart he lost the lead to Chris Hill, but with Ruben Hornacek down in sixth, Smythe's team told him to hold position and not risk a crash - the points from second and leading most laps was enough.

Eliminated from the race off was Ruben Hornacek, who blew a right rear during the Phoenix race to spin out, "now there's just one thing left for me to do, win Homestead" said the German after the race. Also eliminated was Scotland's Yosh Hughes who blew an engine on lap 30 while running second, the Lothian native was not available for comment post race having left the track. Florida's J.R. Franklin and Italy's Alberto Zanetti were the final two eliminated after being unable to start the race.
