Another great weekend of motorsport for everyone out there. While Discovery's airing of the World Rally Championship 2011 season is both delayed (3 races behind) and condensed, it's still great to see how all the best drivers in the world are fairing with in-car footage and solid commentary. As long as you don't look up the current standings and ruin the fantasy, you're in pretty good shape! Also making an appearance this weekend is the second race of the 2011 Australian V8 Supercars touring car season, airing on Speed this Sunday. If you haven't had a chance to see a V8 Supercars race before, Aussie touring car racing is chock-full of close quarter, high speed, pit-stop laden, four door tappin' action. And because they race on road-courses with plenty of curves, it makes for quality viewing of driver skill.
