Motors TV Weekly Highlights

 4th – 10th October 2008

 American Le Mans Series - LIVEAll ten hours of the American Le Mans Series’ penultimate round comes live from Road Atlanta, host to one of the most prestigious endurance races in the world, Petit Le Mans. So important is the event that Peugeot, dominant in the European championship but perennially thwarted by Audi at the blue-riband Le Mans, will be sending a pair of their diesel-powered prototypes across the Atlantic as the two giants of world sportscars go head-to-head for outright victory. With Acura and Porsche, as well as a host of the LMS regulars lying in wait to pick up the pieces, pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable because this is one event not to be missed.

FIA GT - LIVE

 After nearly a month away, the FIA GT brigade return for round eight of the championship live from Nogaro. Considering its high profile, the series does seek out some of the more obscure circuits and this venue is no exception. Set in the south-west of France, it’s a narrow course made up of tight and twisty corners leading onto long, fast straights which promises to keep the action frantic and unpredictable. The championship makes its second visit to track after its debut on the calendar in 2007 when Corvette took the overall honours.

 F3 Euroseries - LIVE

Le Mans might not be synonymous with single-seaters but that won’t stop the F3 Euroseries field from making the most of their visit to France this weekend. Sharing the same bill as the DTM, the continent’s top junior drivers will be battling it out around the shortened Bugatti circuit on the penultimate weekend of the championship. With the 2008 season drawing to a close, it’s make-or-break time for those hoping to secure a deal for next season so plenty of daredevil driving is guaranteed.F3 Euroseries, Round 9, Le MansSunday, 5th September, 08:45 - LIVE

DTM - LIVE

Motors TV’s packed weekend of live action continues on Sunday afternoon with coverage of the penultimate round of the DTM, live from Le Mans. Tom Kristensen and his Audi contingent will be looking to follow up on their recent 24hour victory at La Sarthe by triumphing there in the world’s premier tin-top series. Ran over the shorter Bugatti configuration, it’s often difficult to tell that you are on the most famous circuit in the world. Only the pit-straight and first chicane appears on the revised set-up that makes a return to the calendar this season after being dropped in 2007.

World Superbike action returns to Motors TV this weekend in the form of round 13 from Magny-Cours. Unlike MotoGP, the machines are based on their production counterparts with essential racing modifications applied. That way the costs are dramatically reduced allowing for vast grids of similarly able two-wheeled rockets to run three abreast at every available opportunity.
