< Back to News Home Alcon's winning weekend

Posted (05/25/2015) -

Alcon celebrated yet another winning weekend this holiday weekend, winning races across the globe with its top-of-the-range brake products.

First off was NASCAR, where Charlotte has played host to a two-week NASCAR festival, incorporating the All-Star, XFinity, and Coca-Cola 600 Sprint Cup races. Joe Gibbs Racing had an incredibly successful campaign throughout the festival, winning poles and races in both the All Star and Coca Cola 600.

These weren’t just any old wins though, they marked Joe Gibbs Racing’s first win in the All-Star race after 24 years in existence and marked three of seven Alcon Charlotte wins in seven years.

Back across the pond it was Portugal’s turn to host the World Rally Championship, where Volkswagen had a clean sweep of the podium. Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila powered their way to the podium, winning their maiden rally in the process. Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia narrowly missed out to finish on the second step while Andreas Mikkelsen and Ola Floene finished off the Volkswagen whitewash.

And of course there was some victory to be had back in the UK, where reigning champion Petter Solberg won his first Lydden Hill title of the World Rallycross. Despite a slight drop in performance during the Sunday heats, Solberg’s strong performance on day 1 helped secure semi-final places for the Norwegian, a chance he relished to secure himself pole for the final. After a close fight with second-placed Ekstrom, Solberg took the crown just 0.341 seconds in the lead to become the first driver of 2015 to win two rounds.
