FIA WEC Super Season all set for Spa opener
This weekend, Motorsport.tv brings you LIVE coverage from the 2018/19 FIA World Endurance Championship ‘Super Season’ curtain-raiser, the 6 Hours of Spa, as a record grid will be on hand to take the green flag!
 
With Porsche’s withdrawal from the WEC at the end of 2017, their shoes have been filled by eight privateer LMP1 entries, all of which will be looking to take the fight to Toyota, and the debuting Fernando Alonso. Behind the top class, an eight-strong LMP2 grid sees the arrival of Ligier and Dallara, to battle with the all-conquering ORECA 07. Finally in the production ranks, BMW will give the M8 its European debut, while Aston Martin will race the new Vantage for the first time, as 19 GT cars compete in GTE-Pro and Am.

All the best bits from Rally Argentina
The FIA World Rally Championship headed for South America for round five, as Sebastien Ogier looked to consolidate his points lead. The Frenchman had not previously won in Argentina, but after three rally wins in 2018 so far, he has proved in ominous form. Thierry Neuville was victorious last season, after snatching the win from Elfyn Evans. Find out if the 37th edition of the event would prove as dramatic, with Motorsport.tv’s Best Of.
