Motors TV Weekend Highlights September 13,14

Mid-September heralds the traditional conclusion to any motorsport summer, with live Goodwood Revival coverage ensuring a nostalgic weekend in the West Sussex countryside.Now in its 17th year, the Revival revisits Goodwood Circuit’s golden era, guaranteeing that a plethora of revered sportscars, GTs and single seaters will be in attendance.Nevertheless, illustrious races such as the RAC TT Celebration, Sussex Trophy, St. Mary’s Trophy and Shelby Cup will surely add a touch of fierce competition to an always-glorious occasion.From one iconic event to another, we travel Down Under as daily FIA World Rally Championship highlights continue from Rally Australia, with Volkswagen looking to rebound from a disastrous home event in Germany.The Hannover-based outfit can claim a second-consecutive Constructors’ title in Coffs Harbour, although Jari-Matti Latvala will need bad luck to strike team-mate Sebastien Ogier once again. Meanwhile, a solitary point covers a three-way battle for fourth between Thierry Neuville, Mikko Hirvonen and Mads Ostberg, courtesy of Neuville’s maiden win in Trier.It’s a comparatively short 900-mile hop to Melbourne as delayed-as-live V8 Supercars coverage resumes from the Sandown 500.Defending champion Jamie Whincup will be firmly focused on extending his advantage over Mark Winterbottom in 2014’s first of three Endurance Cup events. But – despite slipping further adrift in Sydney – 300 points for victory gives Ford Performance Racing’s 33-year-old a chance to pressurise Triple Eight’s number one in Victoria.Elsewhere, it’s the perfect time for Chase Elliott’s return to Illinois as live NASCAR Nationwide Series coverage continues.Georgia’s 18-year-old will aim for another 2014 triumph at Chicagoland Speedway as he tries to increase a 19 and 42-point championship lead over Regan Smith and Ty Dillon, respectively. However, Elliott Sadler’s four-month run without a top-five finish is costing him dearly, with the 39-year-old now 54 behind rookie Elliott.Back in Europe, delayed-as-live European Le Mans Series action returns at Paul Ricard.Courtesy of victory in Austria, Signatech Alpine’s Paul-Loup Chatin, Nelson Panciatici and Oliver Webb lead the LMP2 standings, with Jota Sport only four points in arrears. Meanwhile in LMGTE, AF Corse holds a three-point lead in the battle for Ferrari honours over Russian squad SMP Racing.And finally, our live FIM Motocross World Championship coverage concludes for 2014 with Mexico’s season finale.Tony Cairoli comfortably wrapped up a sixth consecutive MXGP title last time out in Brazil, giving the Italian cause for celebration as he chases a tenth overall win of the year. However, only 23 points separate MX2 leader Jeffrey Herlings and Jordi Tixier, but with no confirmation whether the injured Dutchman will return to battle for his third world crown, everything’s to play for in Leon.Friday 12 September19:25 FIA World Rally Championship, Rd 10, Australia – Highlights (Day 1)Saturday 13 September12:55 FIA World Rally Championship, Rd 10, Australia – Highlights (Day 2)14:30 LIVE Goodwood Revival (Day 1)20:30 LIVE NASCAR Nationwide Series, Rd 26, Chicago23:05 Goodwood Revival – Replay (Day 1)Sunday 14 September08:30 V8 Supercars, Rd 10, Sandown 500 – Delayed-as-Live12:30 FIA World Rally Championship, Rd 10, Australia – Highlights (Day 3)13:00 LIVE Goodwood Revival (Day 2)15:00 European Le Mans Series, Rd 4, Paul Ricard – Delayed-as-Live17:50 British F3, Rd 6, Brands Hatch – Highlights19:00 LIVE FIM MX2 Motocross World Championship, Rd 17, Mexico (Race 1)20:00 LIVE FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship, Rd 17, Mexico (Race 1)21:35 FIA World Rally Championship, Rd 10, Australia – Highlights (Day 3)22:00 LIVE FIM MX2 Motocross World Championship, Rd 17, Mexico (Race 2)23:00 LIVE FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship, Rd 17, Mexico (Race 2)All times are BST
