    ''Turkey 3-0 Holland: Dutch Euro 2016 hopes take a huge blow

    1125017_a69271cbd3ae347a8fd991f8200e0401.jpg

    Turkey have defeated the Netherlands, 3-0 in the Group A qualifier game for the Euro 2016 in the central Turkish province of Konya on Sunday.

    Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup scored the first goal in the eighth minute. The second was scored by midfielder Arda Turan in the 26th minute. Burak Yilmaz scored the third goal in the 86th minute.

    Turkey are now in third place in Group A, a spot that guarantees a participation in a two-legged playoff against a third-place team from another group, of which the winner moves to the Euro 2016, to take place in France next summer.

    Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu was in attendance to watch the match held in Torku Arena.'' Anadolu Agency (AA)

    ''Turkish wrestlers crowned world champions
    Riza Kayaalp, Selcuk Cebi triumph in Greco-Roman wrestling

    Two Turkish wrestlers were crowned world champions in Greco-Roman style Tuesday in the 2015 World Wrestling Championships in Las Vegas.

    Turkish wrestler Riza Kayaalp beat Cuban Mijain Lopez Nunez 1-0 to win the gold medal in the 130-kilogram category.

    “I just finished a legend,” 25-year-old Kayaalp, winner of previous world and European titles, said after beating Nunez, 33, in Orleans Arena. Nunez was previously crowned world champion five times and Olympic champion twice.

    Separately, Turkish wrestler Selcuk Cebi beat Belarusian Viktar Sasunouski 3-0 to win the gold medal in the 80-kilogram category.

    Cebi dedicated the gold medal to Turkey’s population. “Our country is going through a period of turmoil, there are martyrs. I would be very happy if this medal gives a little moral to the families of those martyred,” he said, referring to soldiers martyred by PKK terrorists this summer. This is Cebi's third world title.

    The 2015 World Wrestling Championships in three disciplines: Men's Greco-Roman, Women's Freestyle and Men's Freestyle are being held between Sept. 7 and 12.'' Anadolu Agency (AA)

    Turkey looks to host Formula One again at Istanbul track

    formula-1-turkiye.jpg

    The company operating Istanbul Park, the track that hosted Formula One races up until 2011, announced it was looking to seal an agreement for hosting the races again next year



    Formula One races may return to Turkey next year as the company operating Istanbul Park track announced they were working on an agreement for inclusion in the 2016 race calendar.


    Vural Ak, chairman of Intercity, which currently operates the track in Istanbul, said at a press conference he held talks with Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone and Ecclestone gave a deadline of December 2015 for Istanbul track's inclusion to the race calendar. "We are now awaiting the establishment of new government and its approval to host the races," Ak said.

    He said the hosting fee would be $13.5 million at most, noting this was the lowest fee they paid yearly for seven years when Istanbul Park hosted the races. Ak said his company was ready to pay if the fee turns out to be higher. "Formula One hosting calendar will be finalized in December and we only need the final signature. We already have the track ready and we have a staff of 120 people maintaining the track."

    Istanbul Park is currently repurposed for another business involving cars - an outdoors car dealership touted as the largest in Turkey. Used cars are on sale at the 70-acre venue and a new marketplace for used cars, which was inaugurated on Sept. 9, accommodate more than 3,000 cars.

    The venue already hosts promotional events by top brands like Porsche, which showcases its new models to Turkish buyers who can test drive the vehicles on the track.

    Istanbul Park, located on the Asian side of the city, first hosted Formula One races in August 2005. Kimi Raikkonen of McLaren-Mercedes was the winner of the first race. The next three years saw a streak of wins for Ferrari's Felipe Massa. The circuit was removed from Formula One calendar in 2012 due to financial disagreements. Sebastian Vettel was the last winner to grace the circuit in 2011 race. The circuit also hosted MotoGP World Championship Grand Prix in 2005, along with other international racing events. A 5,338-meter anticlockwise circuit covers over 2.2 million square meters and runs over four different ground levels. The circuit is considered to be one of masterpieces of renowned circuit designer Hermann Tilke who frustrated racers with elevation changes and corners that gained notoriety for challenging the racers.

    It has a capacity of 25,000 spectators, a large number for Turkey seeking to boost its revenues from international sports events in Istanbul. Previous events saw consecutive drops in spectator numbers although Turkey has a budding crowd of Formula One fans.''
