FIA WRC heads to Mexico for round three
Round three of the FIA World Rally Championship sees 2018’s cast head from Sweden, to the more exotic climates of Mexico, with Motorsport.tv bringing you daily highlights!

Belgium’s Thierry Neuville took a dominant win last time out on the snow, putting him to the top of the drivers’ standings ahead of Sebastien Ogier. The Frenchman struggled in Sweden, winding up a lowly tenth after a weekend to forget. One man looking forward to Mexico will be Kris Meeke, as the 2017 event winner will be looking to take his and Citroen’s first win of the season in Latin America.

Porsche returns to take the fight to the Cosworth-powered cars
The 24 Hours of Le Mans: The Great History continues on Friday, looking back at the 1976 race. Porsche returned to La Sarthe with their new turbocharged 936, to take on Ford Cosworth DFV-powered cars from 1975 winners Mirage, and Alain de Cadenet’s Lola, as well as the return of Renault Alpine, with the A442.


Australian Supercars season opener replay & GSeries ice-racing action
The 2018 Australian Supercars Championship got underway in Adelaide last weekend, as Jamie Whincup began his seventh title defence. The Holden drivers team-mate Shane van Gisbergen started off 2017 with a double win on the streets, but would he be able to replicate that in the new season?

Something a little different comes courtesy of highlights of the Andorran-based GSeries Ice-racing championship. Held across five rounds at the Andorra-Pas de la Casa Circuit, the series sees a mix of tarmac-honed drivers and ice-racing specialists do battle in purpose-built rally cars, on the close-walled track.


Africa Eco Race highlights & NASCAR Xfinity Series from Las Vegas
Finishing off the weekend, Motorsport.tv has full highlights of the 2018 Africa Eco Race, as well as the best action from the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ visit to Las Vegas.
