What to watch this weekend (Oct 20th - Oct 26th)

  • Australian V8 Supercars - The Gold Coast 600 (Race 2). Live from the Gold Coast street circuit in Queensland, Australia. Saturday @ 11pm - 2am (SPEED/SPEEDHD) live
  • Dan Wheldon Public Memorial Service, live from Indianapolis. Sunday @ 4pm - 5pm (VS/VSHD) live
  • Wheeler Dealers. Porsche 924 and Saab 900. Sunday @ 9pm - 11pm (Velocity/Discovery's HD Theater) replays
  • Top Gear (UK). Mini Marathon. Monday @ 6pm - 12am (BBC America/BBC America HD) great replays
  • Chasing Classic Cars. A king in Queens. Tuesday @ 10pm - 10:30pm (Velocity/Discovery's HD Theater)
A relatively light weekend ahead, but there are some quality highlights to look out for. The second live broadcast of an Australian V8 Supercars endurance event will be taking place this weekend on Versus. The Gold Coast 600, which will be a similar layout to that of the Bathurst 1000, will take place in a scenic waterfront streetcourse in Queensland, Australia. The second (and final) day of races in Surfers Paradise will be aired Saturday night at 11pm (EST). Lastly there will be a live memorial for the late veteran racecar driver Dan Wheldon after his tragic passing this past Sunday's IndyCar race in Las Vegas. The motorsport community is paying honor to Dan this upcoming Sunday, and it is more than well deserved. Have a good weekend all.

Current Events: All-new Pagani Huayra

Motortrend takes a look at the Pagani Huayra, the newest supercar from the Pagani designhaus, which hopes to officially make it to US shores this year. Apparently those 'hopes' are currently trying to be dashed due to US airbag laws. Poor Horacio just wants his cars sold in the states. I'm using poor figuratively.
