If you haven't kept up with the widespread civil unrest going on around the world, you may not know why Formula 1 is skipping it's first scheduled race of the 2011 F1 season; currently there's turmoil in Bahrain, so the new inaugural race of 2011, the Australian Grand Prix, will take place on March 25-27. Instead of practice and qualifying this weekend, you can check out the 2011 F1 season preview on the SPEED network. This up coming Monday on BBC America, the last Top Gear of the16th season will air. Don't fret, the Top Gear guys will be back for the 17th season in June. Lastly if you're into vintage European cars, the Classic Autos Paris auction coverage series is the perfect opportunity for a history & investment lesson.
