We’re at another milestone in the countdown to the new motorsport season: it’s 2018! Happy New Year!

2017 offered a number of incredible motorsport moments, with Lewis Hamilton and Josef Newgarden respectively capturing titles in our two main series of focus, Formula 1 and IndyCar.

But outside of the championship glory, there were so many other headline moments. From Fernando Alonso’s entry to the Indianapolis 500 to Porsche’s remarkable fightback win at Le Mans, there were so many moments to savor.

So what will 2018 bring? Who will be celebrating title success come the end of the season? What memories and iconic moments will we be treated to?

Right now, we cannot be sure. But one thing is certain: we will once again be captivated by the motorsport story that unfolds across the course of 2018.

From the entire MotorSportsTalk team, we would like to wish you a very happy New Year and a prosperous 2018.

Matt Damon meets the Stanley Cup and learns a new rule

INDIANAPOLIS — Before waving the green flag for the biggest race in the world, Boston sports fan Matt Damon received an introduction to a hallowed trophy from another pro sport.

The actor enjoyed a visit with the Stanley Cup, which his Bruins will be vying to capture when they battle the St. Louis Blues at 8 p.m. Monday night in Game 1 of the NHL’s Stanley Cup Finals.

“Am I allowed to touch it? Wow,” Damon said.

He then briefly tried to lift it before a quick admonishment that “You can only do it when you win.”

“Oh, that’s fair,” Damon said, adding. “Let’s go Bruins! Come on!”
