 MX2 - LIVECoverage of round 14 of the MX2 world championship comes live from Lierop in Benelux where the MotoCross mad Dutch and Belgian’s play host to the penultimate round of what has been a hotly contested title battle. Britain’s Tommy Searle has traded victories with South Africa’s Tyla Rattray all season so a mistake from either championship hopeful here could spell the end of their 2008 hopes. Motors TV also have highlights of the MX1 event on Tuesday evening.

MX2, Round 14, LieropSunday, 7th September, 11:00 & 14:00 - LIVEINDY LIGHTSCalifornia’s Infineon Motor Speedway is the setting for the penultimate round of the Indy Lights Championship. Britain’s Dillon Battistini gave his title chances the shot in the arm they so badly needed after victory in the previous round in Kentucky. He’ll need to put in a similar performance here though in the last of the championship’s double headers if he’s to have any chance of winning the crown compatriot Alex Lloyd captured last season.

Reigning British champion Ryuichi Kiyonari made good use of his domestic knowledge at Brands Hatch last time out to record back-to-back double victories and will be amongst the favourites again along with Series stalwarts Troy Corser, Noriyuki Haga and championship leader Troy Bayliss.

Proudly proclaimed as the most powerful motorsport on earth, modified farm machinery tears up a dirt track amid an explosion of noise and diesel fumes as a concrete sled travels along its trailer increasing the resistance until, around the 300ft mark, the agricultural beast is tamed. Bored of F1 yet? You will be.

Reigning Top Fuel champion Urs Erbacher lies fourth in the standings after the opening two events and will be hoping to turn his season around with a strong performance here. Motors TV also have coverage of the Super Twin motorcycles where the top three in the title chase are covered by just 15 points.

Despite missing out on both victories at Oulton Park last time out, title protagonist Jason Moore maintained his healthy advantage at the top of the standings. He’ll be hoping to return to winning ways though as the championship visits Brands Hatch for rounds 11 and 12. Jack Clarke was a first time winner in the category at Oulton Park and on a circuit that is similarly fast and flowing, he should be in the mix once again.
