Only Sebastian Vettel can win the F1 World Championship on Sunday. Five drivers — five — can pick up the BTCC at Brands Hatch on Sunday, so you might want to consider going. The three races are on the Grand Prix Circuit — younger readers will know it from Rush. Us oldies know it as […]
Top Gear does motorsport
NOTE: newest content will appear at the top of the page —— Touring cars’ greatest race — Australia’s Bathurst 1000 — kicks off this weekend, and TopGear.com’s riding shotgun with Andy Priaulx and the XBox One Racing team. We’ll be trackside, engulfed in the madness on the infamous hill and embedded in the XBox garage to […]
Desperately sad news this morning that former Marussia reserve driver Maria de Villota has been found dead in a hotel room in Seville. You will recall the awful accident de Villota suffered last year testing Marussia’s F1 car at Duxford. The accident caused appalling head injuries and Maria lost her right eye.

On and off-track scraps, sparks, fires and fire trucks all served up some spectacular diversion for the dozens of Korean fans who bothered to turn up. The Championship is of course […]
You might have seen on Twitter this morning an exchange between Messrs Clarkson and Brundle. Jeremy, on hearing the news that Sebastian Vettel will start tomorrow’s Korean GP, once again, on pole position suggested it meant another dreary Grand Prix. Brundle came back pointing out that if you want to win in Yeognam, pole is […]
