There's a good bit of variety in the forecast for this weekend. Jaw dropping Isle of Man racing is finally current, albeit delayed on HD Theater. ALMS and IndyCar pay a visit to Mid-Ohio for a weekend of high end motorsport. SPEED replays the seat swap special where Lewis Hamilton and Tony Stewart swap offices for some hot laps; this is worth a watch but not thrilling by any means. A new episode of The Car Show, which is actually decent despite the obvious lack of budget. Lastly, a couple of specials that you should definitely check out; Classic Car Club is another UK based show that takes a comprehensive look at vintage motors, via auction/used car sales, owner specific and driving impressions.
