    Fox Sports Channel exiting

    No more F1 and UFC from 1st Oct 2021. Fox Sports exiting SG. https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/sports-fans-in-spore-face-anxious-wait-as-cessation-of-fox-sports-channels-looms Sports fans in S'pore face anxious wait as cessation of Fox Sports channels looms Post-race highlights of F1 races are no substitute for the live races themselves, said an F1 fan.PHOTO: EPA-EFE Kimberly Kwek PUBLISHED 4 HOURS AGO FACEBOOKWHATSAPP SINGAPORE - Formula One, tennis' Grand Slams and the Majors in golf have long been a staple of sports fans' diet but they could no longer be available to those in Singapore from next Friday (Oct 1), when Disney shuts 13 pay-television channels, including its Fox Sports channels. The decision was announced in April "to pivot towards a direct-to-consumer-first model and further grow (its) streaming services". Telcos Singtel and StarHub had offered these channels as part of their subscription packages and while on Friday both announced they have secured the broadcast rights to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the status of F1 and the premier events in golf and tennis remains unclear. David Tan, a StarHub subscriber who is a UFC and F1 fan, expressed his disappointment at the lack of updates from the companies over the past few months especially when "they had six months to do something about it". He added: "We waited for them to release more information, but they just said we'll lose Fox Sports but we still can enjoy the other channels. "They should have more feedback channels, which wasn't done well so it gives the impression that they don't really care." In response to queries from The Sunday Times, both telcos acknowledged the situation and said they were trying to resolve it. A StarHub spokesman said: "We are aware that a segment of customers may still feel some impact, as alternative viewing means are not yet available for certain 'live' sports events. "To this end, we remain in talks with various content providers to enter broadcast deals for popular sporting events, to cater to our customers' needs. We will make available more information when there are developments." The spokesman noted it has other offerings like the Bundesliga, UFC, WTA Tour, World Wrestling Entertainment and National Basketball Association (NBA). Singtel, which in recent months has added world cricket tournaments through Astro Cricket plus the World Table Tennis and Badminton Asia Championship, said it will "continue to look for quality and popular live sporting events to enhance our sports line-up for customers, and we will share further updates in the coming weeks". But F1 fan and Singtel subscriber Gilbert Teo, 30, reckons such content cannot supplant what will soon be disappearing from his screen. The senior account manager at an adtech company said: "Maybe there are additional sports events, but it's not a like-for-like replacement." Even post-race highlights of F1 races are no substitute for the live races themselves, he added. Aside from the telcos, there are other options for consumers, like over-the-top (OTT) streaming platforms from the rights holders themselves. There are MotoGP Videopass, F1 TV and Golf TV but there are some limitations. For example, F1 TV Pro is unavailable in Singapore, meaning fans here can only watch race replays. Golf TV has live coverage of PGA Tour and European Tour events but has only one Major, the British Open, on its line-up. None of the four tennis Grand Slams (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open) have a dedicated OTT service. Teo does not plan to cancel his subscription as his current TV package, which he pays about $90 monthly for, includes the English Premier League, but feels there should be some form of rebate from the telcos. He said: "The price of watching sports in Singapore is very high so if they don't have the telecast of certain channels, I think we should have a fair compensation." Existing TV packages that include the Fox Sports channels range from $33.80 to $99.90 for Singtel, while StarHub's Sports+ package costs $20 monthly. The Singtel packages include access to non-sports channels. The looming Oct 1 deadline is particularly significant for F1 fans like dietitian Melody Foo, 29. After this weekend's Russian Grand Prix, there are another seven races scheduled for this season with Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton locked in fierce battle - the former leads by five points - for the drivers championship. Foo said: "It's definitely a concern that I cannot watch them, it's a big part of my life and I look forward to watching all these (competitions) during the weekend. "The next Grand Slam (Australian Open) is in January so I still have time for tennis and the ATP tournaments are still showing, so that's still okay." Even though Hong Kong pay-TV service provider Now TV secured the rights for the F1 and US Open following Disney's decision, Deloitte South-east Asia sports business group leader James Walton said it is unclear if the local telcos would follow suit. He said: "Realistically, it's now down to a point where unless beIN Sports steps up or Singtel or StarHub decide to invest in this, there will be a question of how many channels they want to run, how much content they want to produce and do they really see any value in locally broadcasting some of these activities or if it'll go into video-on-demand. "But ultimately, it's looking increasingly likely that a lot of these sporting properties are heading towards video-on-demand, subscription and pay-per-view models and it's something that fans will have to get used to in the years to come."

    CUPRA Ateca Crossover

    The Cupra Ateca is a practical SUV with the 300hp engine and four-wheel-system from the fiendishly quick SEAT Leon Cupra 300. As a result of this SEAT connection, you’re probably wondering ‘what’s happened to the SEAT badge?’ Well, it’s gone – Cupra is SEAT’s new performance sub-brand and the Cupra Ateca the first in a line of cars that will wear that badge. To help your mind separate Ateca from Cupra Ateca, the latter has been given the new badge plus the full treatment from the accessories catalogue. As a result, you get huge 19-inch alloy wheels, a body kit, a quad exhaust system and LED headlights. The result is a car with purposeful styling, although the unfamiliar badge makes it look like the creation of a tuning house rather than a mainstream car. Some will like that, others won’t. The changes inside are more subtle, but you get body-hugging sports seats (complete with questionable looking carbon fibre vinyl bolsters) some Cupra badges and more fake-looking carbon fibre trim on the dashboard. Sadly, it’s not enough to redress the gloomy, almost exclusively jet-black cabin plastics that make the interior feel a little too dowdy for a genuinely sporty car like this. https://www.cupraofficial.com/ Even the presenter in the video finds the CUPRA branding confusing So as some may know i am on the look out for an SUV type of car, you can also call it window shopping maybe will buy maybe not. Went to the Singapore Motorshow. Viewed the Venue and Seltos but left pretty much disappointed/underwhelmed/unimpressed (for a lack of better word) with the Venue. Too basic too funky. Maybe my taste will change in future but dunno. So now i'm back to square one. and then I found the CUPRA Ateca. but i understand it's not even launched yet. Did some searches on the forum and found info of the CUPRA inside the SEAT thread but it was somewhere in the middle and images all cant view. the CUPRA Ateca looks gd! i'm unfamiliar with the SEAT brand. been to the showroom once. but confused with the branding. is this a SEAT or not? saw some websites stating its a SEAT Ateca Cupra. confusing enough. opening this thread here for bros who are potentially looking for an SUV in the near future!

    Decathlon Singapore

    Decathlon opening 4th and biggest store in Singapore. I'm surprised there is no thread being started here since they are so popz! SG so small need to many megastore? But anyway what's good in Decathlon? Been there so many times so far only buy a pair of shoes and also bag from the City Square store. https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/decathlon-to-open-fourth-and-biggest-store-here-in-collaboration-with-sport-singapore SINGAPORE - Riding on a tie-up with national sports agency Sport Singapore (SportSG), sporting goods retailer Decathlon is set to open its biggest store here yet. The store in Stadium Boulevard in Kallang - Decathlon's fourth here - will be about 5,000 sq m in size and is expected to open its doors in January next year. Decathlon announced the news at its Bedok store on Tuesday (May 22), where a memorandum of understanding was signed by its Asia chief executive Yves Claude and his SportSG counterpart Lim Teck Yin. Called the Decathlon Singapore Lab, the store is the first of its kind in Asia, pioneering the use of technology like virtual simulations and augmented reality. Customers trying out a pair of shoes will be able to get foot scans, for example. "Traditional retail is in trouble around the world. The expectations of customers are changing very quickly, they will not come just for the (store's) layout," said Mr Claude.

  11. Despite selling approximately 25,000 units of 911s and 718s annually, Porsche claims that it only makes 2 identical sports car every year. This an interesting surprise as Autocar found out when it had the opportunity to sit down with Porsche plant manager Christian Friedl for an interview. Of course, this fact is a testament to the personalization options Porsche has for its buyers. With up to 39 variants of the 911 and 718 Boxster/Cayman models on the market, customers can pick whatever they need and dress it up with the near countless possible combinations of colours and trims. It isn't enough for Porsche though as it intends to launch even more options for its vehicles and, before long, it is possible that every single car rolling off the production line will be distinct from all others.
  12. McLaren 600LT by MSO revealed ahead of Pebble Beach debuthttps://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/mclaren-600lt-mso-revealed-ahead-pebble-beach-debut McLaren will be heading to this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with a bespoke version of its new 600LT. Showcasing a raft of personalisation options from the Woking brand’s MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division, the concept follows on from the first public outing of the 600LT at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month. Featuring MSO Bespoke Stealth Grey paintwork, the 600LT receives a number of carbonfibre upgrades, including an F1 Longtail-inspired air intake scoop mounted on the roof. Three carbonfibre upgrade packs also feature, with the material being used for the door mirrors and door inserts, as well as the front splitter, rear bumper, diffuser and engine cover. An ‘MSO Defined’ carbonfibre roof and front wing louvres are also part of the package. The new parts are said to reduce weight, although McLaren hasn’t disclosed how much lighter the MSO version is than the regular 600LT. Gloss black 10-spoke wheels complete the look. Inside, lightweight carbonfibre seats are sourced from the McLaren Senna, with orange contrast stitching. Six-point harnesses also feature, while a carbonfibre transmission tunnel and door inserts and an upgraded Bowers & Wilkins sound system are showcased. Detail touches to the interior include bespoke embroidery in the headrests, ‘600LT’ etching on the throttle pedals and even a set of hand-painted keys. The 600LT’s performance is unchanged over the standard car, with a 592bhp twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 taking it from 0-62mph in 2.8sec and on to a top speed of 204mph.

  15. For Goodyear fans or those who wants to change tyres soon. Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 coming soon. http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/Goodyear-Eagle-F1-Asymmetric-3-Press-Release.htm#disqus_thread Goodyear's answer to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Continental Sport Contact 6 is finally here, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3! While we've not yet had the chance to drive on it, the independent German test body TUV have done their usual array of tests, and found that the new Goodyear has 2.6 metres shorter wet braking (9% better performance) and 1.3 metres shorter dry braking (4% better performance) than the average of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3, Bridgestone Potenza S001 and Continental Sport Contact 5. This is a tyre we're very excited about, so you can be sure we'll be reporting on the driving experience at the first opportunity. The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 will be sold in 17 to 20 inches, covering 41 sizes. The tyre will be on the market in certain sizes now, with the majority of sizes on sale by March 2016. Press Release Goodyear announces its new summer tyre, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3: the Ultra-High Performance tyre that delivers shorter braking distance on dry & wet roads helping drivers to stay in control and ready to enjoy the journey. With proven Eagle family test wins and OE track record, it is Goodyear’s premium offering for outstanding braking performance, responsive handling and control in both dry and wet conditions. The Ultra High-Performance segment is clearly a growth market, with an expected compound annual growth rate from 2015 to 2020 of more than 3%². The market is expected to grow in this timeframe with more than 9 mil units². This is primarily driven by the growth of the car park in the C, D and E vehicle segments (medium, executive, large and luxury cars) that are increasingly fitted with UHP rated tyres. The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 redefines tyre performance for powerful saloons and sports cars as well as their driver’s expectations. Significant efforts went into optimising the tyre for outstanding safety and performance. More than 36.000 engineering hours went into the development of the tyre, including over 5.000 tests, 1.200 tests on the road and 3.800 on five test locations in five countries, covering a total of 330,000 km. A key feature is the active braking technology increasing the contact surface and grip when braking, which allows for a shorter braking distance. Additionally, the new grip booster compound ensures increased grip during braking and handling and adhesive resin for stickiness delivers strong grip for shorter braking and performance handling on wet and dry roads. The new reinforced construction technology allows for steering precision and durability by delivering a stronger lightweight construction improving handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency. The independent TÜV Süd Benchmark Test ordered by Goodyear confirmed the key strengths of the tyre. The results show that the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has a 2.6 metres shorter braking distance (9% better performance) on wet roads than the average of three main competitors. The braking distance on dry roads is 1.3 metres shorter (4% better performance) and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 demonstrates 4% better wet handling than the average of three main competitors. The results also show a 10.9 % better rolling resistance than the average of three main competitors and the tyre represents the second best rolling resistance performance of tyre brands tested. “We are very happy that the TÜV test confirms that Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 delivers leading results in the braking test, especially during more demanding situations such as rainfall” says Alexis Bortoluzzi, Goodyear Marketing Director Consumer EMEA. “After all, braking is the number one consumer need, and particularly critical for high performance car drivers.” The new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 will be available in 41 sizes in 17 to 20 inches starting as of December 2016, range will be completed with the majority of sizes by March 2016. - 2.6 metres shorter braking distance (9% better performance) on wet roads and 1.3 metres shorter braking distance (4% better performance) on dry roads compared to average performance of 3 latest designs from main competitors in UHP segment (Michelin Pilot Sport 3, Bridgestone Potenza S001, Continental Sport Contact 5).

  16. With 113,066 units of the Mustang sold in 2018, Ford's coupe gets to keep its World’s Best-Selling Sports Coupe title for the fourth straight year. Ford announced the news on the eve of its 55th anniversary that sales in Europe went up by more than 27% so far in 2019 and its market share increased by half a point for 2018 over the previous year, reaching 15.4%. Thanks to the new Bullitt variant, 75,842 units were sold in the U.S. while 2,323 Mustangs found homes in the U.K., representing an increase of 5% over 2017. According to Ford, the Mustang was sold in 146 countries in 2018 and over 500,000 sixth-generation models have been sold globally since 2015. “We broke the mould when Ford launched the Mustang 55 years ago,” said Jim Farley, Ford president of global markets. “Nothing says freedom, the wind in your hair and the joy of driving like Mustang; it’s an icon. The roar of its V8 on a spring day, there’s nothing better. No wonder it’s the most popular sports coupe in the world.”
  17. The Polestar 1 is a 600-horsepower hybrid sports coupe from Volvo https://www.theverge.com/2017/10/17/16487290/polestar-volvo-hybrid-electric-revealed While Volvo has taken several steps in recent years to reinvent itself as an upscale and technological automaker, its newly created Polestar brand is about to show off how performance and electrification will work together in the future. The Polestar 1, shown Tuesday at an event in Shanghai, will go on sale in mid-2019 as a limited production sports coupe that will be the first of three new cars dedicated to Volvo’s new performance division. But the Polestar 1 is about what’s under the skin. Volvo pledged to introduce only electrified vehicles from 2019, and that also includes the Polestar models. Therefore, the Polestar 1 has up to 600 horsepower through its gasoline-hybrid powertrain. Two electric motors at the back make a combined 218 horsepower with an estimated range of 93 miles on a charge. For more performance, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine up front teams with those electric motors for the full 600. Polestar says this car has the longest range of any hybrid on the market. The performance aspect of the Polestar 1, however, is not limited to the engine, as it features a new Öhlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension that allows the driver to change suspension settings from inside the car for better ride or handling, depending on conditions. Despite using the same platform as the 90-series cars, Polestar officials said the new car shares only half of its parts with the Volvo models. The new coupe makes substantial use of carbon fiber to reduce weight and lower the center of gravity, the company said. It’s also more than two feet shorter than an S90 sedan, resulting in the Polestar 1 having tiny back seats and a much smaller trunk — both of which also allow it to look more like a sports car. The parts sharing becomes more obvious inside, where aside from bespoke details, the Polestar 1’s dashboard looks like it could come from any recent Volvo. That’s not a bad thing at all, since we’ve found Volvo’s Sensus infotainment system to be a snap to use. The Polestar 1 also gets a “phone-as-key” system through an app on Apple or Android devices, allowing the driver to get into the car without a key. It also lets the driver authorize third parties to get into the vehicle for reasons such as servicing the car, fueling or charging it, or using one of the concierge services that parent Volvo is trying to set up. Polestar cars will be assembled at a new facility in Chengdu, China; Volvo and Polestar being owned by China’s Geely. A second Polestar model, which will be a full EV, is said to go into production by the end of 2019, followed by a third model that will be an SUV-style EV. You can order one of the 500 Polestar 1s made per year starting today for an undisclosed price. But like the new Volvo XC40, Polestar says it will offer a subscription model for payment on its vehicles that will include things such as maintenance and insurance. While Polestar may be taking a different route compared to BMW’s M division or Mercedes’ AMG line in terms of making performance cars, it looks like it could do a good job highlighting Volvo’s ambitions when it comes to envisioning what an electrified performance future will look like.

  24. @kusje have spurred me thinking what exactly is a sports car? In today aspect, the line seems to be blurred out by quite a bit. So let's do a debate car by car. And we should start with the not here not there Honda Accord Euro R. From my understanding from Netcarshow.com. Honda produced 2 euro R variant, the CL7 and the CL1. I never include CL9 as it is the ang mo Acura version. Honda Accord EuroR The Honda Accord is an automobile manufactured by Honda, redesigned in 2003 and sold worldwide. Accords sold in Japan (and elsewhere in the world) vary greatly from the US models. In Japan, full-featured Accords are offered. Until 1997, the Accord bi-yearly facelift or four-year redesign was always released a year prior in Japan. Older generations of Accords such as the US 1990-1993 (4th Generation) was actually offered in years 1989-1992 in Japan, and 5th Generation from 1993-1996. Other differences were in features. The 1989-1992 (4th generation) offered in other countries received unheard of equipment for an Accord (until recently) such as a Navigation System, TV, mini-disc player, digital automatic climate control, traction control, Anti-Lock brakes, side-marker lights, heated mirrors, outside temperature gauge, an in-cabin air refiner, map lights, seat heaters, standard fog lamps, headlight washers, rear fog light, full-power seats, telescoping bumper pole, half-mast antenna switch. An Accord Si and Si-T model can also be found in some countries including Japan along with a "Euro R" trim in Europe. In 1998, a major redesign took place for the Accord for its sixth-generation, the largest Accord to date reverted back to its more conservative roots. The wagon was discontinued in North America but remained available elsewhere. Internationally, the Accord split into two distinct versions, one for North America, and another for sale worldwide. The models are often referred to as the Japanese and North American Accords. The larger North American model is based on the Japanese Honda Inspire, while Japanese Accord is sold in North America as the Acura TSX. The Accord was redesigned in 2003 without a size increase of a similar magnitude to the North American model. In comparison, clearly, the North American version is distinct from the worldwide model, being both larger and heftier. The F-series VTEC engines made its debut in the European and Japanese Accords, and the 90° C-series V6 engine was replaced by a more-compact 60° J-series unit for the US Accord. Honda offered the North American Accord in a number of Asian markets, with mixed sales. Both variants of the Accord are sold in Australia-the North American model and the worldwide model. The Japanese model offered a number of hi-tech features not seen elsewhere in the North American range, and minor adjustments to body styling. The Japanese Accord and Inspire also feature Honda's Intelligent Driver System or HIDS which feature safety enhancements such as the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and adaptive cruise So what you all think? Is Honda Accord Euro R a sport car? @chaosmyth @kusje @kdash

    Please refrain from saying " WTF is that???" or "That's the ugliest FCUK I've ever seen" Here goes : It'll be replacing the Musso Sports next year with 2.0L Turbo Diesel or petrol engines. Just don't get a scare when you see it on our roads then.
