Motors TV Weekend Highlights June 7,8

A five-hour treat of club motorsport allows true petrolheads to indulge this Saturday as Motors TV Live Raceday coverage from Silverstone heads up our weekend schedule.

This made-for-television event moves to Northamptonshire’s British Grand Prix venue where it will continue to showcase the British Automobile Racing Club’s impressive roster of grassroots competition, including BMWs, MGs, Caterhams, GT Cup and Classic Touring Cars. The thrilling line-up guarantees an action-packed day that begins at 13:20 on Saturday.

The excitement continues to build in our sixth-round FIA World Rally Championship daily highlights from Rally d’Italia Sardegna as Volkswagen’s dominant campaign resumes.

Jari-Matti Latvala’s victory in Argentina cut Sebastien Ogier’s championship lead to 24 points, reminding the Frenchman that a second world crown will be far from straightforward. Meanwhile, Kris Meeke aims to couple speed with consistency in Italy after Citroen’s British charge scored a second 2014 podium in South America.

We then journey west to Portimao where our live and delayed EuroFormula Open coverage kicks off a now-traditional single-seater and GT double-header.

Sandy Stuvik made an excellent start to his title campaign with victory and second place at the Nurburgring, giving Thailand’s RP Motorsport driver an early points advantage. Meanwhile Alex Palou seeks to bounce back from race two retirement in Germany after dominating the season-opening contest.

It’s turning into an all-Chevrolet Corvette Super GT battle as our live and delayed International GT Open coverage resumes in the Algarve.

Selleslagh Racing’s Maxime Soulet and Nick Catsburg guided their C6R to victory in Germany, tying SMP Racing duo Roman Mavlanov and Daniel Zampieri for the championship lead, while AF Corse’s Andrea Piccini and Giorgio Roda hold a slender advantage in the GTS category.

Our coverage moves from Portimao’s ultra-modern surroundings to Imola’s iconic and revered tarmac for live and delayed CIV action as the Italian Motorcycle Road Race Championship reaches rounds five and six.

Matteo Baiocco’s domination of both Superbike races in Vallelunga last time out ensured that Ivan Goi’s championship advantage didn’t last long, with Ducati’s Baiocco now leading his elder compatriot by 26 points.

And finally, we travel Down Under for second-round V8 Ute Racing Series highlights as V8 Supercars’ younger sibling heads to Barbagallo Raceway. Ryal Harris is chasing his third successive title and will try to quickly overhaul current standings leader David Sieders.
