Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather reportedly tipped his chefs $300 each during a recent visit to a Las Vegas restaurant. The 42-year-old was celebrating a friend's birthday with 16 others at Catch Las Vegas when he made the generous gesture. A source told reporters, "He personally thanked everyone, the cooks were ecstatic and thankful!" Business Insider reports Mayweather is known to be a big spender, having once spent $18 million on a 280-carat diamond watch. Mayweather officially retired from boxing in 2017 after beating Conor McGregor to take his professional record to 50-0.
MotoGP is coming to Japan for the 16th competition in this year's World Championship being held October 18 to 20 at Twin Ring Motegi. Built by Honda in 1997, the track is located in the hills surrounding the city of Motegi on the island of Honshū, the biggest island in Japan. According to Brembo technicians, who assist 100% of the 2019 MotoGP pilots, the Twin Ring Motegi is very demanding on the brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it earned a 5 on the difficulty index, exactly the same score given to the track at Sepang and the two European circuits. Of the 14 corners on Twin Ring Motegi, ten require the use of the brakes and on five of these, the riders apply the brakes for more than four seconds. This explains why the braking systems are being operated for 33 seconds per lap, which is equal to 32% of the entire race, one of the highest percentages for the World Championship. Since there are three braking sections of modest length (between 35 and 92 meters each, or 115-302 feet), the mean deceleration is not very high, it stays down at about 1.2 G, but his is still higher than that registered by a Honda Civic Type R when braking from 100 to 0 km/h. Summing up all of the force applied by a rider on the Brembo brake lever from the starting line to the checkered flag, the result comes in at more than 930 kg (2,050 lbs).

Chevrolet begins a new chapter in its storied racing legacy with the introduction of the new mid-engine Corvette race car, known as the C8.R. The C8.R will be Chevrolet's first mid-engine race car to compete in IMSA's GTLM class and the first clean sheet race car design since the C5.R debuted in 1999. It will make its racing debut at Rolex 24 at Daytona on Jan. 25, 2020. The C8.R is based on the strong foundation of the 2020 Corvette Stingray. There is a deeper level of technology transfer between the race car and production Corvette than ever before, which helps contribute to many of its advancements. As a result, the C8.R shares the highest percentage of parts between the production and race car than any previous generation.
