Motors TV Weekend Highlights August 9,10‏

With most of Europe heading to or already on the beach, our American cousins pick up the live motorsport baton this weekend courtesy of NASCAR Nationwide Series and Tudor United SportsCar Championship coverage. The former sees drivers in unfamiliar surroundings this Saturday evening thanks to corners that turn right as well as left at Watkins Glen, which plays host to round 21 of the campaign. One of the 2014 calendar’s three non-oval events, it has the potential to shake up a title fight that remains as close as ever between points leader Chase Elliot and his nearest pursuers Regan Smith, Elliott Sadler and Ty Dillon.Our focus shifts from stockcars to sports-prototypes 24 hours later when the TUSCC visits Road America for its 10th round of the season. All four categories will be in action at the two-hour 45-minute race where battle is sure to resume at the head of the field between the Corvette DPs of Joao Barbosa/Christian Fittipaldi and Taylor siblings Ricky and Jordan. Also expect the GTLM class to be as competitive as ever: a mere 28 points currently cover all five manufacturers.Elsewhere, we’ll have highlights of the penultimate FIM Enduro World Championship round of the season from Lumezzane in Italy where Eero Remes and Cristobal Guerrero were trying to prevent Frenchman Christophe Nambotin from claiming his first E1 Class title. Back on four wheels the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup visits the Red Bull Ring in Austria with runaway points leader Jordan Lee Pepper eager to extend his advantage over Victor Bouveng and the chasing pack.And, a little closer to home, the original trackday car hits Brands Hatch Indy Circuit for round four of the Caterham UK Racing schedule. Expect the usual mix of close competition and excitement from the top tier R300s down to the entry-level Academy machines.Saturday 9 August06:25 V8 Supercars, Rd 8, Queensland – Highlights09:00 3D Drives, Episode 610:05 FIM Enduro World Championship, Rd 7, Lumezzane – Highlights15:45 FIA World Rally Championship, Rd 8, Rally Finland – Highlights16:50 Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup, Rd 4, Red Bull Ring – Highlights17:20 Caterham UK Racing, Rd 4, Brands Hatch – Highlights18:25 GT4 European Series, Rd 3, Spa-Francorchamps – Highlights19:00 LIVE NASCAR Nationwide Series, Rd 21, Watkins Glen22:05 V8 Supercars, Rd 8, Queensland – HighlightsSunday 10 August06:25 Blancpain Endurance Series, Rd 4, 24 Hours of Spa – Highlights11:35 Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup, Rd 4, Red Bull Ring – Highlights 12:10 Caterham UK Racing, Rd 4, Brands Hatch – Highlights13:10 GT4 European Series, Rd 3, Spa-Francorchamps – Highlights13:40 NASCAR Nationwide Series, Rd 21, Watkins Glen – Highlights15:45 V8 Supercars, Rd 8, Queensland – Highlights19:00 LIVE Tudor United SportsCar Championship, Rd 10, Road America22:05 NASCAR Nationwide Series, Rd 21, Watkins Glen – HighlightsAll times are BST
