A great weekend of racing entertainment lies ahead. Formula 1 is back at it again, this time in Istanbul. The winners of the first few races will make this an entertaining season to watch unfold; McLaren must have done something right in the off-season. The wildly competitive V8 Supercars series goes to Perth for more bumper to bumper action. And on the automotive entertainment side of things, Speedmakers is back to take a look at the new Lotus Evora sportscar; this more refined, Toyota V6 powered, MR gem is looking to take on the big boys in this segment; based on projected pricing ($76k to ~90k) it's aiming at the 911 and M3...having high aspirations can be both good and bad.
